It's time to look forward to 2021.
Can you believe we are a little over 7 weeks away from the New Year!?!
Now, that we have a new President-Elect and made history with the first African American/Asian American AND woman Vice President-Elect, it's time to look forward.
I've thought a lot about freedom last week.
Freedom is one of my top Core Values. If you've followed me for awhile, you know this about me.
Last week, I started working with a spiritual teacher, and he defined freedom with these 4 pillars:
- Self Discipline
- Self Responsibility - Your ability to respond
- Self Awareness - You are becoming aware of what's already there!
- Self Remembrance - your unique soul awareness
Wow! I never thought self-discipline and even self-responsibility would be even in the same sphere as freedom. And self awareness and remembrance? Huh?!? What the heck?!
However, when I really think about it, these things DO create more freedom. Let's apply them to financial freedom...
Self Discipline is what's needed to pay off debts and to create savings, and once you've paid off debts and have a certain amount of savings, then you have the freedom to make different choices, NOT based on money.
Next, self responsibility is defined by this spiritual teacher as your ability to respond, and if you have enough money to take care of "emergencies," your ability to respond increases 10 fold.
Self awareness is defined by you becoming aware of what's already there. With money, I would equate this to knowing what's coming in and what's going out...and I would add...what do you really want? Clarity around your money creates a clear path towards what you want, as well as the ability to manifest more.
And finally, self remembrance is defined as your unique soul awareness. It's remembering your self-worth. This is the piece I think is the MOST IMPORTANT. I define self-worth as knowing who you are and what you bring to the table. And "knowing" really means, remembering! So, I want you to remember who you are, what you bring to the table and that you are worth it!
