Unlocking Freedom

"Every addiction arises from an unconscious refusal to face and move through your own pain. Every addiction starts with pain and ends with pain. Whatever the substance you are addicted to - alcohol, food, legal or illegal drugs, or a person - you are using something or somebody to cover up your pain."
 
- Eckhart Tolle 

Confession - I am a mess sometimes. Through my mess - there is a message.  But here’s what’s so cool – when you let those parts out, things can change.

 

That shame can turn into beauty and self-love.


"When you know better, you do better and when you choose to do better we rise unto our best selves". 


When you let go and admit it, accept that you have moments of being a mess and than you share that feeling of feeling unworthy at times with the rest of us, then you can step into a larger, freer life.

"A real decision is measured by the fact that you've taken a new action. If there's no action, you haven't truly decided." - Tony Robbins 

And when we make that kind of choice, our bodies feel different.  Our nervous system responds. Our adrenaline glands begin to fire.

 

Some part of us know that the choice we’ve just made has truly, fully and unequivocally put our butts on the line.

 

When we’ve made that choice that deep down we know we should have made a thousands times before, but we chickened out. That choice that comes deep from the belly of our soul, that no matter what the outside worlds says, does or think, we know inside that it’s the right choice.


A choice that produces a high level of uncertainty, anxiety and excitement (all at once).


This choice will bring us to the edge of our faith. Test our ability to believe in ourselves and make us think from time to time we were crazy.

 

But in the end, we will see that this choice was a choice for freedom. The truth will set you free and when we look back on this choice at the end of our lives, we will be happy that we made it.


As always be honest with yourself. And remember you can't get to courage without going through vulnerability.
