Happy Canada Day + 4th of July!!!  Independence + Freedom are what these 2 North American Holidays are all about aren’t they?


Working for the Stellar Coaching School, The S.W.A.T Institute (located in Canada) I’ve lots of Canadian Sisters!!!  So a big shout-out to all you lovelies North of the Border.

The 4th of July Independence Day Celebrations here in the USA are another huge marker of Freedom.

How blessed are we to live in a nation where we have the opportunity to speak our truth and make so many choices in our personal life and work habits? There are many around our globe without this opportunity.

Here’s the deal though, even though we are fortunate to live in 2 Nations that honors Freedom, many women, like so many of my clients, just don’t feel free.

How is it that  we live in a Nation of plenitude and opportunity yet we feel caged in?

So many of us feel or have felt stuck.  We are imprisoned by all the “shoulds” we tell ourselves, confined by the expectations we believe others have of us or shackled by the stories we keep telling unconsciously be retelling.

Yes our pasts may have had moments or years of trauma, abuse, neglect, being mis-understood, lived through crisis or unfortunate circumstance. In present time we get tripped up ruminating these things in our mind creating fears that do not currently exist. We think how it was, is how it is always going be.  But those are lies our wounded self tells us.

We allow our wounded self to create our reality instead of being powered by the real women inside of us.  But it does not have to be that way.

We get to choose to break free.

We can create a different path for ourselves.  Understand first and foremost that this shift begins in the mind. Embrace your desire for things to be different.I love this song by 1990’s pop Diva’s En Vogue.  It about sums it up.   “Free Your Mind….and the rest will follow.”

The truth is, in the human experience almost everyone goes through down times.  We are all wounded in some way.  The thing that separates those that let fear and doubt and “stories” limit them is their mind.

We can break free of all this if we DESIRE to. Truly desire is the first step.  

Like our forefathers who longed to be free of British rule we too can take action and start our own Revolution. I get it, today in our country there are still are injustices, but more and more people have the opportunity to pursue their own personal Freedom than anywhere else in the world.

Can you imagine what the Western World would be today if Americans and Canadians alike had not broken free of British rule?  What if they told themselves it was too hard? To scary?  Not possible?

Where in your life are you telling yourself things are too hard? Too scary? Not possible?  What stories are you buying into?  {!firstname_fix} if you feel stuck or caged in, isn’t time you question your on belief system?

Just last week the White House ruled Gay Marriage Legal in our entire Nation.  YES ~ LOVE WINS.  What Freedom, liberation and Inspiration so many people are feeling now because of that decision.  But long before that outcome the seed of desire was planted. The seed of changing the status quo was watered and nourished.

Ask yourself over the next few days:

Do I feel stuck or free in my life?

What does Freedom mean to me?

Am I willing to free my mind of limiting beliefs?

Journal the answers to these questions and gain some clarity for yourself. Sweet soul, how do you want to feel?  Are you clear on that? Clarity is Potent.   Clarity is Manna for Freedom.  Being clear on how you want to feel is divine.

FYI: I won’t be running my next Virtual Desire Map Workshop until September. The Desire Map is a Process where we get deep in touch with how we want to feel. In July in honor of Freedom I will be offering a discounted price of $100.  The regular Price is $250.  Get all the deets here.

In the Comments below tell us what Freedom means to you.  Share your favorite songs that reflect this.  Wouldn’t it be cool to create a “Freedom Playlist” to connect you to that desired feeling?


To Freedom + Feeling Free!
Much Love,
