Day 339: Body Insecurity 2 - What Purpose Have You Given Your Body?
http://www.matterfreeman.com/2016/11/da ... rpose.html

Part 2, sharing more about my process of changing my relationship with my body from that of a symbol, to that of a vehicle for my Genuine Self Expression.

Have you defined what purpose your body has?

Do you see your body as a way to achieve some goal of having a positive experience for yourself such as 'I am attractive', 'I am sexy', 'I am beautiful', 'I am fashionable'?

Are you obsessed about wishing / wanting to change your appearance so that you can 'get' these positive experiences? Is that the real purpose of having a body?

The key to stopping body insecurity is to look at what Experiences you are holding onto as wants and desires, that you "want your appearance to give you", and give those wants up, to make space for being able to embrace yourself within your body and Honor your body as a gift to support your Genuine Self Expression.

Day 340: Considering My Unique Strengths and Weaknesses when Redefining Words
http://www.matterfreeman.com/2016/11/da ... ngths.html

Do you struggle with redefining words? For me, the key to more effectively redefining words in a way I can actually apply in daily living, was realizing that words need to be specific to my unique strengths and weaknesses, instead of being too general or idealized.

Day 342: Giving Self The Thrill of Living
http://www.matterfreeman.com/2016/12/da ... iving.html

Do you find that there is a particular Energy / Mind addiction or habit that you struggle to give up / let go of? Would you say that the reason you like your addiction so much, is because it adds a 'Thrill' to your otherwise 'boring life'?

Recently I had been investigating the question of 'Why Am I'? Within the point of being tempted to go back into old habits to stimulate myself / occupy myself with energy experiences in the mind, which had been coming up with not currently being in a partnership / relationship and so having a lot of 'alone time' with myself.

One of the words that I found within asking myself what is it that I am wanting / enjoying actually within this energy? And the word 'Thrill' / 'Thrilling' emerged. This was cool because it opened up the realization that I can now explore giving myself this word - living the word 'Thrill' as a self expression in my daily life / process.

So I looked at where / how am I not living fully in each moment? In what ways am I holding myself back and settling for a 'lesser' version of myself - and in that, creating a sense of something being 'missing'? A sense of 'boredom' in moments? In what ways can I push my limits within my daily available time, to FULL-FILL myself through Self Expression?

There is a Thrillingness - a pleasure, a Self-Excitement that comes with living each day like a mini-life; pushing to become more effective, learn new things, Move Self to write, to share, to investigate, to develop solutions, to decide to work more on Self-Creative projects instead of moping / numbing / thinking about the past / thinking about other people / wasting time - being Idle.

So, for me, changing my definition of the word Thrill to something that supports my Utmost Potential and assists with stopping mind-habits would be:

The Excitement and Pleasure of Self that comes with pushing myself to live on the cutting edge of Self Expression. I push through fears, resistances, comfort zones to find the point of my Utmost Expressive Potential in Every Moment of Breath.

I've already been practicing living this word, and I've found that since It's now clearly defined within me, it's much easier to move myself to creative, self expressive actions in moments rather than seeking out mental stimulation. That's the key with living words that I've been experiencing: when defined effectively, and specific to my individual points of change that I'm facing, I give myself the structure to immediately stand up within a pattern / a reaction, and align myself to the supportive word that fits the moment.

More words to come...

Day 343: Principled Living vs. Energetic Survival Intro
http://www.matterfreeman.com/2017/01/da ... getic.html

This vlog is an intro to me sharing my experience with the difference between Spirituality as positive experiences generated through knowledge, information and symbols -- and Principled Living as a Destonian, learning to stand One and Equal with all scenarios in my world.

Lots to share about how I've changed and the things I've learned about myself as I've been walking my process of Self Responsibility, Self Honesty, Self Forgiveness, and practical Self Corrective Action, within the principle of standing as Life as All as One as Equal, learning to live my Utmost Potential in the day to day reality of life on Earth in a Physical Body.

Day 345: Which Face and Voice Expressions do you React to?
http://www.matterfreeman.com/2017/01/da ... voice.html

Sharing how through a process of repeating conflicts (consequences) manifesting in my life, I finally asked myself the right questions which opened up why I kept falling into such intense reactions of defensiveness when someone would react within 'being upset' toward me. I found my reaction was more toward the specific voice tonality and facial expression of the person, which represented specific words which triggered deeply ingrained / programmed reactions originating from much earlier in life, connected to specific memories.

What's cool is that in getting a grasp on the real underlying points that I'm reacting to, I can then effectively take self responsibility to deconstruct and release myself from the hold of that reaction -- which is the hold of the PAST, which opens up new words to re-define and live which I had not previously considered, which support with expanding myself in being able to be stable and solution oriented, rather than emotional.

Day 346: I only ever have to change for One Day
http://www.matterfreeman.com/2017/02/da ... e-for.html

Do you struggle with stopping a habit or pattern? Do you get depressed and want to give up when you are in the process of learning something or developing a new skill or routine, and you have a day where you don't experience significant progress or results?

Have you considered that you only ever need to learn, apply, commit, live, change for ONE DAY?

Sharing a bit about the role that the application of redefining and living words within practicality and common sense plays in my process of changing myself from someone who is 'hardwired for self disempowerment', to being someone who is solution oriented.

Dedicated to Desteni and everyone involved; grateful for the daily support, tools, and inspiration from everyone over the past 9 years of my life, which has enabled me to be consistent with being able to find Peace in a world of Strife, through learning how to take self responsibility for who I am and what I am creating myself as, and begin living my utmost potential.
