I have a confession to make.
I’m a junkie for Danielle LaPorte. Her wisdom, how she says it, how she shares it, how she is all heart and how she calls BS.
I had the privilege of seeing her speak live this week. So many nuggets to digest. The theme of the evening was “Choose to Shine”. Danielle’s call to action is that she wants us all knowing, speaking and owning our truth.
Sign me up! However, easier said than done in a world that thrives on conformity, sameness and numbness.
I have been guided by Danielle’s Desire Map process for more than five years now. Setting ‘goals with soul’ as she calls it. Being led by how I want to feel versus pursuing an end game or outcome has changed the game for me.
It was this process that led me to my central core desired feeling of Freedom. It was getting clarity on this that nudged us into selling up and hitting the road to live and travel through Europe with our three kids for a year in 2015. We needed to stretch our wings, bust out of our box and try freedom on for size.
So when Danielle asked in her closing comments the other night :
'What are you choosing to be devoted to?’.....Freedom remains my answer.
So what’s the big deal about freedom? Some would argue a rather generic term, maybe even a bit worn out.
My question for you then is, what does freedom mean to you?
Do you know? Have you spent any time contemplating it?
Do you regularly seek out opportunities to do what makes you feel most free and alive? Feeling good is the whole point right? Right!
Constantly questioning what freedom means to me has taught me that freedom shows up on so many levels. Freedom on a practical basis (time & money), freedom on an emotional level and freedom in my well being (that's another blog).
I have recently come to understand that it is in our financial freedom (which facilitates choices) that we gain time freedom and from there we begin to have emotional freedom. As more people tap into emotional freedom, we begin to heal and I believe that it is in our individual healing that the world can then begin to heal.
My chosen path to making a contribution to that healing and being part of the solution right now is to continue to spark conversations about freedom. To keep questioning, probing and asking you if you have clarity about what freedom means to you. If you’re not clear, I want to help you get clear so that you can start living more alive, more awake and more free.
I host a limited number of Clarity Coaching Calls each week to help you with that digging and clarifying work.
Clarity is always first base. Why?
Because clarity :

I would love to hear what has you all fired up and juiced about? To use Danielle’s question (currently my fave q) – what are you choosing to be devoted to?
Leave a note in the comments. Your contribution may well inspire someone else. Thank you for making this a conversation! LRx

"What I now know to be true is that the key to creating freedom is accessing choice and the way to create more choices is to have more of the resources that allow choice, namely time and money."
