Celebrating FREEDOM.

An introspection one year after setting myself free. Freeing myself from a business model and a business liaison that was, from my experience, unsupportive to me and the community that I represented, confrontational and blind to working and creating business from a heart centered model.

Today, as I was breathing and enjoying the freshness of my early morning walk, I pondered what this FREEDOM has meant for me. One year later and I am no longer shackled by the constraint of a larger body, domineering, bullying and demanding. In my business I have been able to open to a heart centered, more compassionate and gracious model of carrying on my LIFE work. In this freedom I have had to look to see where I go to exercise discipline and  to remain on course towards my goals.

These goals very simple and include:

  • Living from a SHAMELESS base
  • Enjoying Celebrating my FREEDOM
  • Flowing from my CREATIVITY
  • Walking GENTLY on the EARTH
  • Giving from a POWERFUL place
  • Offering from my heart, with GRACIOUSNESS and KINDNESS.

This personal and business FREEDOM has not had it’s fair share of challenges. The greatest of these is the sense of isolation I feel when I look around. I sometimes find it very difficult to see others who are living their passion and their heart from a business model that I am able to identify with. I have been working on opening my vision farther and farther, seeking out others who can operate their business and live their lives, opening their heart and offering to the world with, FEARLESSNESS, LOVE and COMPASSION.

As part of my work this summer. I will be building, nurturing and creating a project that I will call the “Awakening Tree“. This will be  tree in which one can place their personal wishes for what they would like to “AWAKEN” in their life. This project is inspired by the YOKO ONO HOPE TREE and the Guggenheim in Venice. For more information about the “AWAKEN TREE PROJECT” contact me at . Watch for more blogs about this project.

Being a Tourist in my life.

Today as I went for a walk I pictured the importance of being a tourist. I experienced the freshness and the excitement of new simply by visiting a familiar spot and opening myself to a fresh perspective.

This tourist is able to see and experience what is new, what is unknown, what has not been experienced. This tourist is on an adventure, a voyage of discovery. The vibrancy and impact of seeing and experiencing, even the vaguely familiar, from a fresh or different view-point  can be a huge pick me up.

This morning being a tourist while on my walk gave me some information. This was to experience life from a fresh perspective,  this can be a different and maybe even exciting perspective, a perspective where everything can be seen, experienced, savoured as being new. From this view-point, this observation deck I can bring the energy and the open mind of a tourist into my own life.

Today I will explore being a tourist in my life.
