How to Exist in The System, While Feeling Free of It

How to Exist in The System, While Feeling Free of It

Theme chosen by popular request...


So much of your pain comes from the fact that your soul came here to experience all that you are... while society tries to squeeze you into all that you are not.


On this journey, you have felt suffocated by the conventions of the world. It is hard to see a role for you, a path forward, in the options that exist out there. You can no longer squeeze yourself into a box, when your soul just wants to fly free.

This can feel like a great battle, because it is not natural for your soul to be told what to do and who to be.

Earth is one of the densest, most challenging realms of polarity. It can feel like a maze of trials and tribulations — and what is the key to finding your way through?

Is the goal to be able to follow your passions, express who you are, offer your gifts — while also thriving within this system?

Or is the goal to be completely free of it?

Maybe there are no shortcuts — there are only stepping stones. And the key is to keep freeing yourself, from the inside-out. Freeing yourself from all ideas of limitation, all illusions of separation. Freeing yourself, from all self-imposed expectations and fears… Freeing yourself, to follow the call of your heart.

And perhaps, in doing this, the pathway opens up for you. Perhaps in doing this, the energy of everything you are, everything you become, ripples out into your reality… to the point where a new world, a new way of being, is not only possible — it is real.

With the reality of bills and immediate needs in your face, it can feel impossible to see how you can exist in this system while also feeling free of it.

But is it possible to tip the scales… where your self-freedom becomes greater, and the suffocation of the system gets smaller? Is it possible to loosen its grip on you, so you can breathe more easily… empower yourself, so you can gain the courage to fly?

For the first time ever, I asked all of you on my Stories for any topic suggestions for this next ceremony. I usually tune in and choose a topic intuitively, but for some reason this month, the intuitive nudge was to ask you all for suggestions.

Now, I know why. I don’t think I would have done a ceremony focused on this topic, without your nudges (though we’ve done a slightly similar one last year, called Embodying Expansion).

Here is the topic…

Opening to the Flow of Abundance — Online Guided Ceremony

A guided journey and energetic shift into:

— Calling in abundance of all forms
— Alchemizing limiting stories around lack, money, and self-worth
— Playing with the energy of limitless choices, enoughness, and expansion
— Opening your energy field to receive more
— Clearing the way to thrive by being YOU and doing what you love
— Feeling abundantly held & supported now
— Calling in your most expansive life
— Receiving messages from your higher self about your path & gifts

Obviously this is not just about money. There’s so much to unpack and shift here, because our ability to feel safe and expansive… to simply be who we are in this world and feel supported… and to follow our hearts and passions, is so closely linked to our stories around self-worth and lack. Our beliefs about who we are, and what we deserve. Our physical life circumstances. And the deeply-rooted programming from society that tells us how we “should” live, what we “should” do… what is possible, and what is not possible.
