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

self imposed judgment

judgment of others

scarcity/poverty consciousness

obsessive thought a.k.a.  ‘stinkin’ thinkin’

concern about what the ‘propriety police’ might think

micro managing anything

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

playing small

imposter syndrome

carrying the weight of the world

“running around with my hair on fire”, to quote my friend Amy Storm

believing that I have to be all things to all people

co-dependence

toxic interactions

shoulda woulda coulda’s

unreasonable expectations

‘savior behavior’

‘being a Teflon coated pan’ from which love slides off

the inner critic

clutter and chaos

excuses and justifications

desire to have the last word

belief that the way it has been is the way it always has to be

 

I claim freedom to:

ask for what I want and deserve

anticipate joyful, grace-filled outcomes

experience love in all aspects

accept easy financial flow

express from the heart, regardless of whether someone else can/will accept the love

love the woman in the mirror wholeheartedly

lighten up physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually

play big in the world

let my light shine

love with abandon without fear of being abandoned

be one of the cool kids

inspire others to live full out

dance my dreams to life

wink at the Goddess in the mirror

express my truth

do my creative work and have it well received

be in a healthy, mutually suppportive, deeply heart and soul satisfying, loving relationship

manna-fest miracles

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

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

What I Asked For
Making the rounds on Facebook today:  "Everything you are going through is preparing you for what you asked for."  Another one of those inscrutable statements that can be interpreted in various ways. My take is that it isn't blaming as much as it is highlighting that we have such power, even on a

Noah and The Mensch
Please note that I am not a biblical scholar, so this blog comes from a place of curiosity and the workings of my own mind, rather than theological knowledge. This past Saturday, I sat in the sanctuary of a suburban South Jersey synagogue, surrounded by family and friends of my 13 year old cousin

True Colors
I saw a post on Facebook this morning: "If someone shows you their true colors, don't try to repaint them." This lesson has long been with me. It has been at the core of many co-dependent and dysfunctional relationships/friendships throughout my life. When people have crossed paths with me, somet

For All That We Are
'To be witnessed and embraced for all that we are; the good, bad and ugly; as striving human beings daring to reach for the stars, is a gift beyond measure." These words came to me as I was writing a chapter for a soon to be released co-authored book called Embraced By the Divine: The Emerging W
