When I was a little girl I had a dream that I was flying high, like a bird, in a bright blue sky toward the sun. I woke up with an incredible feeling of deep peace, realizing what it must be like to feel totally free. Because that dream was so powerful, it has been easy for me to recall and experience that state of being free; and even though it was in the fantasy of my imagination, I can still hold the intention that feeling free is possible in many aspects of my life.
Considering the definition of “free” I get curious to explore what this really means and/or can mean for me in my life right now:
Not under the control or in the power of another; able to act or be done as one wishes.
Not physically restrained, obstructed, or fixed; unimpeded.
I will reflect on “being free” by asking myself compelling questions like:
When am I free?
When am I not free?
How often is my sense of freedom under my own control?
How is my sense of freedom impacted by my attitude?
How is my sense of freedom impacted by self-trust?
