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?

We Never Know Who We Will Touch With Our Words
It is no secret that I am addicted to words. As a career writer, I live and breathe their essence. They delight me to no end. They are the beat of my heart and the blood that flows through my veins.

Inhaling and Exhaling
Breathing is necessary in order to sustain our corporeal existence. Inhaling and exhaling, over and over. The average human takes 12 breaths per minute which comes out to 17,280 each day. This doesn't factor in times of exercise. It is something that most people do without even thinking about it, un

Love Is All I Am
Lately, the Muse has been waking me up long around 4 a.m. Not sure why, but when that happens, I know it is important to take dictation. And so I do. A name came through first- Tyler Goldsmith.

Leap of Faith in the Face of Doubt
In the past few months, I have become increasingly aware of the power of spiritual practice to keep the rudder on my 'ship of dreams' guiding me steady on, so that I don't run it ashore. Just when I think I can be complacent and  refrain from keeping a watchful eye on the direction it is going, an
