There is a country song with lyrics like those. Ironically, I don’t listen to country music but those lyrics have been in my head for a few days. Tomorrow is July 4th, a full moon and an eclipse. It feels magical to me and with those lyrics dancing in my head it feels like it is time for me to create my own celebration of my independence. In order to do that it also means I have to fully accept that I am free, it isn’t something I am chasing any longer. I AM FREE! I am free to live my life, free to become who I am meant to be, free to raise my children how I choose. Free! That also means I must release the limiting beliefs that I have been hiding behind, that have made me feel safe and comfortable. Where do I play small so that I don’t have to face the reality of being free. There is power that comes with being free, power that must actively be handled. That power comes with taking ownership of my life, taking the lead for the direction I want my life to go. What do I want to do with my life, how do I want to spend my days and with whom? These are all questions I must ask myself daily until I am so clear that I know longer allow things to distract me. Every day must be lived intentionally and with purpose and it is difficult to do that without clarity. Tomorrow I will take time to create sacred space to begin my day of celebrating. I will head out early and pick some wild flowers and then meditate. Since we will be spending part of our day with friends out on the lake I will allow myself time to use the healing powers of water to cleanse and will cap off my day around a fire. I will use the power of the fire to release and burn away those limiting beliefs and behaviors. This will be done through creating a list of those limiting beliefs to be burned. I will also spend time dreaming of something I would like to manifest into my life now as I open up and create space. As I release that which is old I will make room for the new I want to bring in.
Wishing you a beautiful and magical Independence Day! Let Freedom Ring!
