Tomorrow is Independence Day in the USA, a day to celebrate our freedom. But does everyone in the USA, or even in the world, experience freedom? Freedom from worry, freedom from fear, freedom to do whatever they want to do, whenever they want to do it, and with whomever they want to do it with? Not likely. And, if you would like to understand why this is the case, let’s refer back to what we discussed last week:
1. You have the power to create
2. You create with your thoughts – your thoughts create your experiences 100% of the time.
3. What you see in front of you is a result of your past thoughts. So, if you keep thinking the way you’ve been thinking, you’ll just get more of what you have.
So what’s the formula for creating true freedom and being able to experience whatever you want and escape the grip of fear, worry, lack and frustration? Start thinking consistent with the future you want to create. In other words, in order to experience freedom on all levels, you must start living and acting from a consciousness of trust and abundance.
To help you do this, here’s an exercise you can do that I learned from my friend and mentor Robin Duncan. Take out a pad of paper and on the top of the first page write: “If I had $50 million in the bank and no limitations:” and then, on the top of a new page for each question, write:
How would my life be different?
How would I be acting or feeling that would be different?
What would I be thinking about most of the time?
What would I be saying that would be different?
How would I be spending my time?
What would my contribution to the world be (assuming there is no lack, everyone has a source and it’s not you, and they’re already whole, complete and abundant?
The purpose of this exercise is to get in touch with your highest vision for your life and business, how they both would be if it all turned our perfectly, and to create this from a place of joy and possibility.
Do you really want to experience freedom? Once you have completed this exercise, start moving in the direction of your vision and start living your life as if it’s true and you are free!
One caution. Does this mean you go and buy that yacht, take that trip around the world, or do anything else on your list right away? Probably not. You don’t want to do anything which generates fear. But do you start thinking about it, planning on it, moving toward it, smiling about it, and imagining it? Absolutely. And then watch how quickly it all manifests and becomes your reality. Happy Fourth of July!
