The answer to the question posed by the title of this article is unique to each person.
For some it is freedom from some oppressive reality. It might be freedom from a job they hate. Or from a very bad relationship. It could be freedom from an inner torment or a chronic illness.
It could also be freedom to do something – to create, to travel, to smile.
All of these kinds of freedom have something in common. They come from – and trigger – an inner state of regeneration and renewal. By contrast, lack of freedom triggers internal stress responses.
The reason this is important is that chronic stress is associated with lower lifespan and lower quality of life. When it goes on long enough, you are much more prone to a host of problems:
- Lower immune system function
- Impaired digestion & elimination
- Heart disease
Nobody wants these things. But when you struggle with stress, you are predisposing yourself to lower quality of life on many levels.
I see this all the time in my practice. And if you pay attention, you will see it all day long in your life. Watch what people do and what they say. Look at their facial expressions as they go through their day. Feel their energy when you’re around them.
I’m on a mission to increase people’s inner sense of freedom. What happens in the process is that they increase their happiness, sense of connection with life and creativity. They also often find, or strengthen their sense of purpose in life.
This is one of the core ideas of the upcoming workshop, Step Into Freedom. It’s coming up starting the evening of February 24th. The weekend will include very specific techniques for reliably gaining freedom from the stress. In other words, it will give you back control of your life.
All the best for your health and happiness,
