As women, it’s often easy to feel stuck, confined, or shackled when we’re out of alignment with our core values, beliefs, or desires. We’re held down by an inner voice telling us who we should be, how we should live our lives and the standards we should live up to. But all of these “shoulds” are holding us back from the freedom that’s found in being exactly who we were meant to be.
What is True Freedom?
Freedom is such a broad term it can be difficult to identify what it means to truly be free in your own life. Freedom can encompass financial freedom, emotional freedom, time freedom, location freedom, and many other things.
But, true freedom is lightness from within. It’s breaking free from the cycles, beliefs, and behaviors that are holding you back from living a fulfilling and joyful life.
How Can You Achieve Inner Freedom?
Children are born with an innate sense of freedom. Consider a 2-year-old – they don’t feel held down by a distorted view of who they should be, they simply are. A child is free to play, dream, imagine, and engage in activities simply for the joy of it.
As we go through life, we have experiences and interactions that mold us. These experiences teach us valuable lessons and skills, but they can also instill in us core fears and desires that will follow us into adulthood.
Becoming familiar with what your core fears and desires are will allow you to recognize the patterns of behavior they’re creating in your life. Once you’re cognizant of these patterns you can begin to free yourself from them and move toward a more authentic existence. Knowing your Enneagram Personality type can help you to understand these core fears and desires so that you can consciously begin to address them when they show up in your life.
What is the Enneagram?
The Enneagram is a system of personality typing that describes 9 unique, interconnected personality types. Each of the Enneagram personality types is characterized by two core motivators: our basic fears, and desires which then create patterns of how we think and behave. It delves into the deep-rooted beliefs that guide us and offers insight into our strengths, weaknesses, and potential areas for personal growth.
Becoming familiar with your Enneagram personality type can be a freeing experience. When you gain an intimate understanding of your core fears, desires, strengths, and weaknesses you can begin to create intentionality around that. By harnessing the positive attributes of your personality and learning to combat the not-so-positive aspects you can move away from the feeling of being stuck and toward a feeling of freedom and fulfillment.
