It is April 2023 and we are in the first Sun Sign of Aries.
With so many major planetary shifts taking place that will change our course, we’re talking today about a topic near and dear to my heart: freedom and independence.
Have you ever stopped to think about what these words mean? They represent the ability to live life on your terms, free from the limitations and expectations of others. But why do so many of us feel like this is unobtainable? Who has control over our lives? To be clear, this freedom and independence also mean that we allow the same for others. Accepting who they are and the path they wish to follow.
It’s easy to feel like we’re not controlling our destinies because, when you stop to think about it, for the most part we aren’t. We fit into a system we have been educated in and restrained to adhere to or comply with to prosper and to survive, with only a few thriving. Whether it’s the expectations of our family, our job, or society, it can be difficult to break free from the mold and live our own life on our terms. But what would happen if we did? If we regained our power and sovereignty and became self-empowered and independent of the system?
The possibilities are endless.
We could live a life filled with purpose, passion, and fulfilment. But along with that would come a whole range of emotions. Fear, uncertainty, and doubt are just a few of the emotions that can arise when we step outside of our comfort zone.
So, how do we deal with these emotions? That’s where my six-week course on getting to know your inner child and exploring the value of freedom and independence comes in. Together, we’ll explore what these words mean to you, what’s holding you back, and how to deal with the emotions that arise.
If this sounds like something you’re interested in, please get in touch with me for more information. I can’t wait to help you on your journey toward a life filled with freedom and independence.
As an introduction and preamble to the course, I have an eBook for you to download: The Lingering Wounds of the Inner Child. It is a simple introduction to your inner child, how to connect and heal your wounds, and integrate the new relationship with self-love and compassion.
Movement is a key component to a healthy body and mind.
Our bodies were designed to move and when we do, we feel better mentally and physically. Movement helps us to build strength, flexibility, agility and balance.
One way to move your body in a way that feels natural and in rhythm with your body is to incorporate Pilates, Callanetics, Stretch and Tone and Body Sensing. Pilates is a form of exercise that focuses on strengthening the core muscles and improving flexibility. Callanetics is a low-impact exercise that focuses on toning and lengthening the muscles. Stretch and Tone is a form of exercise that combines stretching and strength training. Body Sensing is a form of yoga that focuses on sensing and feeling the body in order to move with more awareness.
When you move your body in a way that feels natural, you are more likely to stick with it. These forms of movement are all easy to follow and can be done at home if you wish or in person in groups with little to no equipment. Move your body in a way that feels good for you and you will be on your way to a healthier body and mind.
We add the fun back into the movement.
Talking from the Heart is my personal blog and – three to four times a month – I write about things that are important to me, and to my world, and hopefully to your world as well. Here are two of my most recent entries.
I have been focusing on my inner drive for freedom and independence now at this age and revisited some other stages in my life where these two values were just as important, however, for different reasons.
Firstly, why is it important to me? Perhaps you may want to ask yourself the same question and list what comes to mind.
