Most of us live our lives based on the rules and expectations set for us by others. Who are these others? Our jobs, bosses, family members, friends, society, religion, government and on and on it goes. We let others dictate who we are and how we live our lives. Regulation give us a sense of structure, we know what to expect so it eases our fears, it limits the amount of chaos or things that could go wrong. We have everything under control.
The problem with this living arrangement is that regulations also limit our freedom, our creativity, our ability to think outside of the box, to experiment and try new ways of thinking and living, it limits our ability to live in harmony with the cyclical nature of our bodies and the natural world around us.
What would happen if we chose to deregulate our lives? To make decisions based on our intuitive abilities, based on what we are feeling and sensing in our bodies, based on spiritual discernment from the energy of the atmosphere and people around us. To eat when our bodies tell us we are hungry as opposed to a clock. To sleep when our bodies tell us they need sleep as opposed to a clock. To tune back into the natural rhythms of nature. To tune into the spiritual energies around us. To live in perfect harmony and alignment with human beings, nature, animals and the cosmos. To make decisions from the inside of us rather than letting others out there make the decisions for us.
This may sound like a utopian dream, but I believe it can become a reality and it is the way I am learning to live my life now. It is a slow process; our lives are entangled with everyone else’s, so it takes time to deregulate out of everyone’s expectations for you. If you work at a job, or live in a family, it can be challenging to make this happen. But don’t let that discourage you, find one area of your life you can begin this process in and see how it feels to live with more freedom, being more in tune with who you were created to be.
