Declaring Independence

                                                                          Click to view

I love ritual. It links me to my Source and helps me to turn inward, while simultaneously making needed outward changes. On holidays that have symbolic meaning, I particularly like to work/play with creative ideas. As we are approaching the celebration of the 4th of July in the U.S.,  I decided to make two lists, one in which I declared independence from beliefs and actions and one in which I allowed freedom to hold certain rights inviolate.

I declare freedom from:

fear

holding back my expressions of love and appreciation for fear of rejection

So what is it that from which you choose to free yourself?

What do you claim the freedom to be, do or have?
