You have the freedom to choose drama or peace. The ego can’t stand peace, and the soul stands for peace. When you feel the unwelcome discomfort of chaos, that is your soul waking up with the intention to be free.

"Every human has four endowments - self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination. These give us the ultimate human freedom...The power to choose, to respond, to change." ~ Stephen Covey 







Are you ready to take flight in a new direction? If you feel stuck, you’re being held back by your own self-imposed limitations. Follow the lead of your soul that is ready to fly, and your ego will join you.  

Most of human drama is caused by egos getting offended. Wars are started by inflated egos as well as conflict in relationships. When you decide not to take anything personally, you’re free of drama because you’re no longer wired to get offended.

If you find yourself in conflict with another person, or even with yourself, say, “I choose peace instead of this.” This simple statement will take you out of your head and into your heart.

Notice when you’re being criticized if this is a reflection of self-criticism. What others think of you is none of your business, but what you think of yourself is your business. Make sure your self-talk is kind, compassionate, and supportive.

Use discernment when being challenged to discover if someone is speaking the truth or projecting their own negative beliefs on to you. Blame and shame are tools of the ego. When you see them being used, simply have compassion for the one using them.

When your buttons are being pushed, that’s a sign that you need to remove your buttons. Buttons are the external triggers that bring up your own limiting beliefs about yourself. Change those beliefs and the buttons will cease to exist.

Self-discipline is freedom. When you have the discipline to change an unhealthy habit, then you are free of its power over you. Recognize a habit you would like to change and then discipline yourself to make a different choice.
