Part 3 of our series on Setting Intentions 2021
What would freedom look like for you this year? What in your heart of hearts would help you feel more free, more happy and more joyful in 2021? At the end of this year what would you like to look back upon?
Hi everyone, welcome to this week’s episode of Your Freedom Unlimited. This is the third and final episode in our series on setting intentions for 2021.
This week we’re focusing on freedom. Why? Well this podcast is called Your Freedom Unlimited for a reason – I think freedom is really important and I’m really curious to know what freedom would look like for you this year?
Often, when we hear the word freedom we think about holidays or timeout or something we might have when we retire – and that is all great. But what I’m interested in is what would freedom look like for you this year? In your daily life? Without thinking about retirement, without thinking about a holiday, what would freedom in your every day look like?
When I’m asking you about freedom I’m talking about freedom at every level in your life. I’m talking about freedom within your own mind in terms of how you think and feel about yourself. I’m talking about freedom with the time you have to do some of the things that are most important to you. And I’m talking about feeling you have the freedom to make a difference somewhere – maybe for someone else or the planet?
I Asked Myself this Question
I asked myself this great question quite a few years ago and I continue to ask it every year.
When I first asked myself this question about seven years ago I’d been in what I realise now was a dark place. I knew in my heart of hearts that I really needed to change things if I was going to live the life I truly felt I wanted. Back then I realised that anxiety had me by the throat. It had kept me small, locked down and fearful. I wasn’t making decisions to live – I was making decisions to survive and stay safe. I was no longer living my dreams. Anxiety was running the show and it was not pretty.
It was then that I first asked myself this question – what do I need to do to feel more free within myself and in my mind? I realised that my thoughts and emotions were running my show so I asked myself how can I feel more safe and secure within myself? How can I stop this incessant need to manage and control the outside conditions all the time so that I can feel safe?
And that led me on a journey of deeply understanding the energetic and divine nature of all things.
I realised that instead of being separate and alone I am a part of Source – the great all that is.
I realised I truly am the creator of my reality – not a victim of circumstances.
I realised there are ultimately two choices – we can focus on fear or we can focus on love.
These realisations were the big game changers.
I also realised the truth of quantum physics – that what I focus on is what I get. This put the power back into my hands and showed me that if I took responsibility for my focus and my emotional frequency every day then I could have a vastly different experience of my life.
And so I did. I created my own freedom within. And EVERYTHING in my life took a turn for the better.
It’s important for me to tell you here that I did not have to burn down my old life to create this new freedom in my life.
This was an internal revolution. On the outside things predominantly stayed the same. But my experience of my life was completely different.
The things that I had to burn down were a set of beliefs that no longer served me and habitual negative thoughts and emotions that I knew no longer supported me.
What is different now? My relationships are deeper and stronger. I’m much healthier and my business has expanded. I’m doing more of the things that I love and I’m doing different types of different things that fill ME up – I have a consistent daily spiritual practice that bring so much more to my life.
So for me, freedom in my every day is about how I’m thinking and feeling about myself and about how I’m approaching my relationships, my family, my business, my work – everything really.
I’m still very much a work in progress. But I am feeling so much more free in my mind, and so much more of my own person.
My life changed because I asked myself this one question. I’m so grateful for asking it.
And that’s one of the main reasons I’m now doing this podcast. I want to share what I’ve learnt with you.
I am no longer living for coming from a fear-based perspective. I am living my life from the perspective of love and the fact that I am the leader of my life that I get to create my own reality every day with the thoughts that I think, and the things that I do, and the people that I surround myself with.
I have reinvented the way I approach my life and that has given me freedom within my heart, freedom within my mind and freedom within myself.
And that’s what I really wish for you.
To help with that I’m sharing with you my annual review ritual called Your New Year Revolution. This super simple ritual will help you review 2020, set intentions and get into the zone for 2021.
if you’ve been listening to the podcast recently you’ll have heard me talk about it.
This is a review process with a difference. Like changing the lens of your camera you will be changing the lens of your review. Instead of focusing on what didn’t work – my process has four simple steps to help you focus on what did work in 2020 and to help you plan your most amazing year ever.

What Does Freedom in 2021 Look Like For You?
So what does freedom in 2021 look like for you? After 2020 and all that came with it maybe you want to make a complete change … but the key is to make sure that you are doing what YOU truly want this year.
What do you TRULY want? It could be that you want to do something completely different – maybe you want to make a major change in your life, in your business or job or relationships?
Or maybe you want to deepen and expand into what you already have?
Take your mind forward to the end of 2021 – what would truly have made your heart sing this year?
Is there one thing or a few things? What would truly make the difference to you?
So one of the things I’ve truly wanted to do for a long time is my yoga teacher training. Last year I made a decision to do it. This was a long held dream of mine and with the COVID-19 lockdown it was the right time.
Initially, I didn’t get support from some of those closest to me to do the training but it was something that I knew I really wanted to do for myself. I knew it would deepen my connection with myself, that it would expand my knowledge and relationship with yoga. And it did. To make that decision I needed to go deep inside to think about what truly would make my heart sing.
Step #3 also doesn’t have to be about changing your entire life. Perhaps it is about doing one thing you really want to do – that you can do alongside your other family, business or work commitments.
So what would make your heart sing?
What is one thing close to your heart that would make all the difference if you gave it a go this year?
Who Do You Need to Be to Bring These Intentions To Life
This brings me to Step #4 of my New Revolution Process – Getting into the Frequency Zone. This step is all about who you need to be energetically to bring these intentions to life in the world.
When we look at the energetic nature of things we know that it is who we are being that will make all the difference to our outcomes. For example, if I had stayed the same all those years ago – as a victim to my circumstances, focused on what was going wrong in my life there was no way I would be where I am now. Absolutely no way. I had to choose a new story and a new way of being every single day.
When I chose a new story – and lived that story every day – everything changed.
Step #4 is also part of the revolution I’ve declared on new year’s resolutions.
Instead of slavishly focusing on the action steps you have to take to make your 2021 intentions happen – this step is about focusing on who you are being. Who do you need to be?
This is a very different approach.
This step is to really get into the frequency design of who you are or who you want to be so you can bring your intentions to life in 2021.
This step is about really understanding that if we want to create or manifest things in our life it actually comes down to who we’re being, and it comes down to that energetic frequency that we are holding.
So, what energetic frequency do you need to hold to create these things in your life?
Do you need to be more caring or loving to yourself or others? Do you need to drop control of some things in your life?
Who do you need to be to make what you want to have happen happen?
This is a complex topic and something I coach people on to help them create a new story for their lives that works for their circumstances.
A Simple Energetic Shift That Will Make All the Difference
What I can share with you now is a very simple, yet profound shift in your frequency that will make all the difference.
This shift is to move from letting the frequency of fear run your life to allowing the frequency of love to be your predominant frequency.
This is about coming from a place of love rather than a place of fear; coming from a place of flow rather than a place of control; coming from a place of expansion, rather than contraction.
Because when we are in the frequency of love, flow, and expansion rather than fear, control, and contraction everything has to change energetically. Quantum physics, which Dr. Bruce Lipton says is the most tested and verified science on the planet, says it must be so.
This has been my experience and the experience of many others that I have coached and know in this space. When you are the frequency of love everything changes.
