A Boat called Freedom Part 2 by Iain

Please read Part 1 first by clicking here.

Every day for a week I thought about the silver haired lady and her words of wisdom. Every day I’d pictured the boat called Freedom, and every day I’d imagined how gloriously happy I’d be if I could see this boat in reality.

I needed to see this boat.

How could I live a life of mediocrity and boredom when I knew a better life existed? …A better life was actually possible …and I’d really believed it was, I was desperate to believe it was possible …but to be honest, I was now starting to have a few niggling doubts…

I’d seen no signs of success and it was frustrating – my friend just smiled as usual… in that ‘told you so’ kind of way. (Or maybe my friend just felt sorry for me for having these ‘far out’ beliefs that there could be more to life?)

Ever since I was a small child I remember being told that our life involved swimming around a huge island. We apparently had to do this to get fed. People wasted the best years of their lives going around in circles. Trapped to the system.

Trapped by their beliefs.

And even though I’d accepted this system as the only way of life up until recently – now it seemed crazy …or maybe I was going crazy? Sometimes it’s hard to keep believing…

The wind started to pick up a little and the waves got bigger making it harder to swim – but nobody seemed to notice. They just carried on their long monotonous circle¬† – an infinite loop of broken dreams. But then I heard her voice in the wind… my intuition…

“You see your Freedom from afar and that is why it stays away. You must imagine yourself sailing your boat, feel the emotions as you look around …you must picture and feel Freedom from within.”

“You see your Freedom as a need. Therefore you stay in a emotional state of lack and Freedom will always be lacking, just out of your grasp. You must know your Freedom is already yours. You must feel the gratitude and joy as if you have Freedom now.”

“You see your Freedom every minute of your every waking hour. Your energy, your power that contains your dream must be released so its magic can work.”

“But if I let go of my dream aren’t I giving up?” I asked.

“When you release your dream you must already KNOW in your heart it will manifest …Then you must take action …your boat won’t float right up to you!”

I smiled, and asked “What action do I take?”

“listen to your intuition…” the words slowly faded as the wind dropped and the sea was calm again.

So I visualized being within my boat called Freedom…

…the sky blue sails flapped gently in the sea breeze. I was capturing the magic of the moment as I sat aboard looking out to the horizon. Gulls flew overhead mixing their song with the gentle splashing of the ocean. The sun was beginning to set and was casting it’s beautiful orange rays across the evening sky. Life was good…

…until choking seawater abruptly awakened me from my visualization/daydream. Yet regardless of the difficulties going on all around me in my current temporary reality, I persisted with this exercise every day. Then on the 7th day I remembered the lady telling me to release the power …so I imagined a ball of pure white energy that contained my passport to Freedom – and I let it shoot from the palm of my hand into the starlit sky (…and I’m sure a star twinkled just at that moment…)

And that was it – I heard nothing for months, no signals, no whispers in the wind…

…but I never stopped believing.

Then one sunny day I heard the whispers telling me to swim and follow the wind. I didn’t need to be told twice and started swimming, my guide -¬† the wind and the waves. I swam until I could almost swim no more, and then in the distance I saw it -

A beautiful sailing boat with sky blue coloured sails with a golden trim. The hull was a dark brown wood and in the corner, painted in small white letters, was the name …’Freedom’.

It was getting late and the sun was setting on the horizon …casting it’s beautiful orange rays across the evening sky. I swam up to the boat and climbed aboard – exhausted but exhilarated.

My dream had come true, but now out of my comfort zone, I thought to myself “Where shall I go? What shall I do?”

I heard the sound of laughing behind me and turned round to see a beaming face with sparkling blue eyes. Intuition, the wisest friend you’ll ever meet.

“You can go anywhere, do anything”, she smiled.

“…you always could…”

    Wow! Again I say wow… I’m speechless. I get it I really finally absolutely get it! It all makes perfect sense, now I know I’m not crazy and this IS real – the magick- all of it. Lol I laugh with great loud ruckus abandon like a mad hatter. It’s the Aha! moment and an epiphany all rolled into one. You have no idea what I’m gwalking about unless… yes unless you’ve been there before. Could happen?? I stammer at such jest. Dear lady you have no idea and sadly I cannot convey nor share my wild childish glee with you because you simply have to be in this moment. Can?? WILL happen is so much more like it. Yes I can it’s what I do best. :D

    This is inspiring and provides a blue-print for focusing on the emotional value of achieving the disired goal.
    Great work!

    This is a wonderful story. Regardless of whether it came from a dream, from other manifestations of the mind or perhaps as a message from Iain’s higher self, it is a very illustrative description of how things are on this planet, in mainstream society. It gives a clear description of how so many people are conditioned and herded in our belief systems to go along with the accepted limitations imposed on us. More importantly, it shows how we can overcome such pressure to conform to such, with a dedicated belief that we can really be free. Each of us has the power to find the freedom within us. Then, we can be attracted to others who are seeking the freedom; and together we can break down barriers, experience a paradigm shift in our understanding of who we really are and enjoy the great gifts of free will, given to us by our creator, who is within us all! I’m with you! We are all one, so seek your freedom and let others have theirs. Let us imagine and create a world beyond our wildest dreams! Thank you, Iain, for sharing that dream of yours, or whatever it is.
