People Talk About Freedom
What they really don’t know
Freedom lies within the Soul
The Spirit is the creator making it flow
Discovering full power of your Spiritual Being is “True Freedom.” It’s easy to do when you experience the loving presence of the Universe. There are no mysteries — the Universe is filled with Love and that energy is everywhere, available to connect with you. Your Soul’s colors are tinted with your thoughts so it’s important to think only about things that are in sync with your principles. The content of your character is your choice. Daily, what you think is what you become. Integrity is your destiny and the light that guides your life with the power of freedom.
So Says Maggy
Shirley Explains Freedom:
On a bright sunny March morning, I excitedly packed for a weekend trip to Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park in Northern California. Lately, I’d been feeling that my life wasn’t fun any more. Where was my sense of humor? The laughter and joy? Passion for life? It seemed as though I was trapped and yet there was no obvious reason. I had a good job, financial security. But something wasn’t right.
Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park stretches from the Big Sur along the scenic coastline Route 1 and is known as “The Greatest Meeting of Land & Sea,” and a great place to immerse myself in nature.
Near the waterfalls, I sat down on a grassy area under a tan oak tree to meditate. I immediately felt nature’s energy entering my body.
I closed my eyes and started projecting colors from my heart out into the Universe. Suddenly a bright white light appeared, and then a rainbow – and my spiritual mentor Maggy stood there, in the center of the light, as if directing the colors of the rainbow. Though she had already passed from this earth, she spoke to me, clear as day:
“Let freedom ring from within your Soul. Enjoy the harmony and watch it soar. Your Soul’s energy is strongest when the mind isn’t trying to seize control. When your mind thinks one thing and the heart feels another, it’s best to allow freedom to show you the way. What is life’s freedom? You dream and ponder of life beyond, but life in each moment is all that is. It’s strange how many of us choose to neglect life’s freedom. It’s important to understand that you can’t be what you do not choose to be.
Nothing outside of you will ever change if you don’t chose live in the now. Look at how you are living. Are you living in joy and happiness, or just biding time? Are you doing what you feel passionate about? Are you living what you dream, or are you waiting for some future moment to do so? Ask these questions of your heart. When you ask your heart, you embrace all that is spiritual, emotional, and physical of your essential experiences. Answering these questions truthfully requires courage.
It’s easy to say ‘I am happy’ or to leave it to the future, saying, ‘Once this happens, then I will do what I love to do.’ It’s easy to say, ‘I can’t afford to do what gives me joy.’ It’s easy to settle for so little. You are feeling trapped right now and yet you have the power to be free. The only jail keeper in life is you. Everything that you do in your life is by choice. Your free choice is through your thoughts, so feel peace and happiness under any circumstance, and freedom will follow. With courage, look into your heart and ask, “What gives me joy or what am I passionate about?” Keep seeking experiences that awaken an uncontainable excitement within.
Then look at life and ask whether those things are reflected in your current work, play or life. Your life is an expression of all that you are. If you are living in pain, unhappiness, or fear, then you have not begun to live. Living is doing that which gives you joy and is expressed in your magnificence in the world. In doing this, you confirm your worthiness and perfection. It’s an act of self-love that calls forth joy-beyond-joy. There is no success or failure; it’s only the experience of life. Know that the moment you begin to live your life as your masterpiece, you will be on the path to true Freedom.”
Looking at the ocean below, I began reflecting on Maggy’s words. It was as though a light had been turned on within me. I suddenly realized I had stopped being creative. Keeping myself busy with work, I hadn’t allowed time to write Maggy’s story, “An Angel With Muddy Feet” or have a social life.
A whale leaped from the blue water, taking an impressive breath of air. I knew it was an omen. Grandfather David, a Hopi elder, once told me that whales are like a swimming library: “Whales carry the history of Earth and have been placed here by the Ancients from the Dog Star, Sirius. Having been born with a protective coat of blubber, whales know how important insulation can be.
They understand the sacred power of water and realize the importance of taking time out to breathe. Their sensitivity to sound and movement connects them to the core energy of primal life. Whales reintroduce us to our creative and intuitive energies to show us a talent we’ve forgotten about or haven’t been aware existed. Whales are able to understand the ancient language of “energy vibrations,” and are able to distinguish where others are truly coming from. Whales ask us to recall our past and listen to their stories so we can creatively heal old wounds.”
I knew I was back on the right track to freedom.
