Today we open a discussion about how to pave a clear path to freedom while at home. To start, we pose the question, “what is home”? A traditional definition would point toward a place where one lives, but let’s dive deeper.
To Ray, where we can lay our heads to sleep, due to the level of comfortably, is what we can consider a physical home. An important element to bring awareness to is how the actual feeling and mental state of safety and belonging are necessary to turn any house (boat, car, tree, whatever) into a home.
Imagine a beautiful penthouse, full of expensive gadgets and lavish furnishings. A luxurious location, while entertaining, can feel lonely and hollow if the feelings of connection are not also associated. The first step to pursuing true freedom and the ability of being home in our environment is to be honest and observe what can be changed.
Is there a lack of communication between family members? Is there anxiety focused around not having a support group? Once the observation of “why do I feel this way” is compiled, we have the opportunity to align ourselves with solutions. Facing our fears at a pace we feel comfortable allows us to confidently walk down our path to success, instead of expecting ourselves to run before we can walk.
A great tool we can use to shift from a place of panic toward freedom at home is to be here, in the eternal moment. A practice of truly being present assists not only in the awareness of our gifts, but also in the realization that we are the creators of our home.
We have the ability to create constructive tools to help us feel the safety and comfort of home, even in the most distressing of situations. A few examples of what we can use are favorite pillows or blankets, music, incense, and mantras, as well as your family in the Community Forums. If at the moment the tools of comfort seem out-of-sight, reach out to the community, and know you are not alone.
Take a deep breath, home is here.
With love friends,
Morgan, Ray, Jordan, & The Panic to Freedom Team
