If I would ask you right now, are you free? will you honestly answer yes?
Most people deep down know that they’re not free. Maybe the definition itself is the boundary. Maybe you weren’t born a slave to this world but you enslaved yourself by what we call A TITLE. Maybe the roles you play are not a part of life, but a mechanism for limitations…
What is an IDENTITY?
An identity is a title that you inherited by the society based on your Role ( functional role believed by the subconscious mind). in addition, your identity could be based on a place that you THOUGHT you found yourself in. It’s anything we put before it “my “ or “I’m”. in fact we’re told to constantly identify ourselves with things as if we’re equivalent to objects. But the down side to self identifying is that what you identify yourself with becomes a part of you. (Not in reality, but in the subconscious belief system of WHO YOU ARE). your belief attach you to the tittle your gave yourself and makes you live in limitation of your identity. Every identity you adopt takes away a piece of your freedom, limits your potential and keeps you fixated instead of being the flexible human being you are .
It’s extremely difficult to overcome the desire of self identification. however, when you stop looking for “who you are ” automatically you will find the truth of who you are. Identities are man made illusions, they’re created by the mind and feeds the Ego. As long as the ego inside you is alive, consciousness can’t take place. Only more limitations of the the false image will emerge; causing illusionary emotions like fear, negativity etc.. “TO BREAK FREE YOU MUST LET GO” to rise you must kill what’s holding you down.

Dreams can be categorised into 3 groups: Nightmares, Emotional dreams and An message from the divine dreams.
- Nightmares It’s super easy to distinguish a nightmare since fear is highly vibrant in such dream. It’s essential to understand that nightmares are dreams where the devil influence is very strong. The devil’s main goal is to disturb your peace and he do so through scary visual images. But don’t sweat it! Nightmares can never hurt you in real life, fiction can never come to life.
2.Emotional dreams are a self made dream. Basically reflection of your inner state. For example your stress or worry can manifest itself in such dreams. Emotional dreams are usually fictional and doesn’t cause any harm either. The over thinking of a dream while you’re awake is the issue, because it attract harmful energy. If your dream consist of unexplained signs you can get a translation from a psychological. However, such dream is often forgotten right after waking up, since it’s nothing more than emotions expressing themselves, with the help of your creative mind.
Moving to the last and rare kind of dreams, a message dream. Yes! Dreams can be a message from your creator and No! you don’t have to be any special to receive these dreams. Such dream is very clear. It pretty straight forward, with no hidden messages. The key sign for spotting a message dream is that you won’t feel any unpleasant emotions when you wake up. Instead It’s very peaceful.
I was in a gathering the other day where everybody BRAGED, Showed off what they have or did. Naturally I just don’t like talking about myself, especially showing off! So i stayed silent. The following days I realized the change in attitude of people around me. Obviously the one who showed off the most or in the society’s eyes is “Great” and “Wealthy ” was given respect and honnor. Where for me I was discounte and i got taken by the negativity.
Suddenly it hitted me ..” Just because I don’t show off my greatness, doesnt mean i’m not great“. It’s insane how we can think less of ourselves and believe in other’s opinion of us. Yet worst, make it our reality. We live in an age where Trend is stronger than one’s own voice. Indeed, the society tremendously influence how we perceive ourselves.
THE ASCH CONFORMITY EXPERIMENT; is a psychological experiment done in the 1950’s. The experiment revealed the degree to which a person’s opinion is influenced by those of groups. It proved that the society can suppress our voice. In fact, people were willing to ignore the reality and give an incorrect answer inorder to conform to the rest of the group. See for yourself ;
You’re great and you don’t need to prove it! No, you don’t need to mimic the false greatness (The Greatness measured with materialistic ownership). Greatness is already within you. True greatness in what’s inside you. At the end of life the only memory will be left of you after you die, is the memories you gave to others. Not your big house or your fancy cars, but how many hearts you’ve touched.

So you are depressed! Let me ask you a few questions before you scroll further.
- Why are you depression? ..
- Do you actually care about the “thing” that made you depressed?
- Do you think you have control over your reality?
Often people say “You can’t control what happen to you, you can only control what how you react to it”. But what if I told you “you can control both“…The external reality is a reflection of the inner state. When you get your inner self healed, the external world will automatically align. The only reason you’re depressed is because you’re focused on the negative, on what you think you don’t have control on and what you focus on grows. As a circumstance you’re allowing your depression to grow beyond your happiness.
The truth is there’s no good or bad, everything is neutral by nature. Our mind is the instrument that define things. When your mind patterns is defining everything as “BAD”, no wonder why you’re depressed! Negative thinking patterns produce negative emotions and the emotions then create a reaction that attract a certain reality. You’re reaction controls the event, the event doesn’t control your reaction. Furthermore, The reaction you give is the product of an emotion . the emotion is born from a certain mindset or what we call a perspective. It’s like a chain reaction where one thing drag the rest. For example when you’re stuck in a traffic jam you can simply enjoy the sunset view ( turning this moment into joy) or dwel on the fact that you’re “stuck in the crowd”.
The key to happiness is to look at everything as it is, with a neutral perspective. No judgment and exactly how Shakespeare said ” NOTHING IS GOOD OR BAD BUT THINKING MAKES IT SO “. No situation is either good or bad, instead our thoughts is what define every situation. When you start perceiving things from a neutral perspective we will realise the sense of ease to accepting the situation as it is. which then will allow the energy to flow.
