Freedom is oxygen for the soul!
This is my 2nd year in a row sitting in the energy of America’s Independence Day while actually being here in their beautiful country. Last year I was in Los Angeles, this year we are surrounded by the rocky mountains in Colorado. These two physical locations feel like they are worlds apart in culture, vibration and terrain but share the same love and passion for this national holiday.
I’ve been thinking about this concept of independence and claiming the moment, celebrating how lucky we are. I’d like to share with you my thoughts as an open invitation to consider what does independence mean for you. Your voice, ideas, insights and feedback are important to me. Please share them with me on any or all of our platforms.
Here’s my thoughts:
- Independence or our own personal sovereignty is a gift. Unfortunately, literally millions of people around the planet right now are not as privileged. To honour those less fortunate, I feel it is my duty to make the most of what I have. I need to make my personal freedom count!
- To me independence is synonymous with freedom. Being free to live a life that is in alignment with our individual or sovereign beliefs, values and soul’s desires is our birthright. Sadly, humanity has forgotten this! However, the more I travel sharing the Higher Love Today message I am encouraged as I see people remembering. Remembering that they are love, remembering that they are divine beings, remembering that they are perfect just the way that they are.
- Celebration for the sake of honouring our effort, our commitment, our process is a dying practice. As a human race, we spend so much time beating ourselves up for not meeting our own expectations that we miss the beauty, the awesomeness, in all that we have achieved and all that we are. I see this as a common theme where ever I am in the world. In our humanity we block out all the little successes that we do every day, because we don’t feel like we deserve to celebrate the small stuff because we still haven’t achieved …..
- The importance of rituals in our society are critical to maintaining and creating community and connection. Right now I am writing this from Grand Lake, Colorado. Situated in the rocky mountains this gorgeous small town beats to the heart beat of its community and its local traditions. From the annual 4th of July fireworks to the street parade this town knows how to celebrate and honour the traditions and ancestors of past and present. My sense is this return to rituals, sacred connections, respect of natural laws is going to be critical in creating the return of balance and love in the world.
Soul food Takeaways from the 4th of July
- Make your life count. Not everyone is as privileged as you are.
- It is your birthright to live a life filled with joy, happiness, peace, laughter, love, purpose.
- Take a moment right now to think of at least 1 thing that you have achieved today, this week or this month. What can you do to today to celebrate your achievement?
- What personal rituals do you have in your life that you are currently not practicing? e.g. daily meditation, walks on the beach, dinner with your family … Give yourself the gift of bringing at least one of these back into your day to day routine.
- Remember that you are love. Remember that you are light. Remember that you are perfect!
