Can you really be FREE?

May 05, 2020

Today I want to speak with you about something very special, something very precious – FREEDOM. 


These days many European countries remember and celebrate 75  years of freedom and peace after World War II. Yet freedom is so much more than only not being at war and not being occupied by an enemy.


Nowadays, in these Covid times, we all of the sudden realise what this core value really means to us, because what we maybe took for granted, feels now taken away from us.


I shot a new Tuesday video for you today with my reflections around this topic.


Once you’ve had a chance to watch it, I’d love to hear from you. What is freedom in essence for you? Where do you find peace in you, even if you’re locked up? Feel free to leave a comment on this blog and share your thoughts.

    Freedom for me is being able to breathe freely, think freely. Physical freedom is important and but mental and emotional space even more so. A physically free human may feel limited while a human in limiting circumstances may feel emotionally free. It is an inner permission to accept yourself and be comfortable in your skin. That for me is real freedom.

    HI…when I consider “freedom” I turn to my in-the-moment- choice point. Tuning into myself and my intuition to hone into what is it I really want in this moment. Another way to consider freedom is one of free of old or stagnant routines and creating new habits that serve me. I treasure the place I live in (Canada) and the space I live in – very close to a beautiful walking trail by a river. Freedom to explore and BE in this space. I feel blessed and grateful to my father and the generation of people who helped secure the freedom of life I now enjoy.
    Thank you Alex for the beautiful scenery and thought stimulant.
