Happy July! Traditionally (here in the US) it’s our freedom month. It starts with the celebration of the 4th of July, and usually leads to a curious exploration of our personal freedoms the rest of the month.
With recent events, many women are feeling their freedom being stripped from them.
So I will be dedicating this month to helping you reconnect with your freedom.
There are many forms of freedom. Spiritual freedom is where we want to be for greater peace of mind and subsequently body. It is our spiritual freedom that gives us access to wisdom. When we align with God’s presence we are always free spiritually, and no person can take that freedom away from us.
When you reconnect with your spiritual freedom you will find yourself living fully into your vivacious, beautiful essence. Lit up from the inside out! Imagine yourself relaxed, confident, eyes sparkling – see yourself walking in glittering sunshine!! Can you imagine how this would impact your life and those around you? Woweeee!
Are you ready to declare your freedom? Here are 3 ways to do so.
3 Ways To Declare Your Freedom:
- Declare to Have More Fun
One of the most common complaints I hear from women is that they don’t have fun anymore. Before my recent retreat I was talking to one of the women attending, and I mentioned that we’d be doing some belly dancing to connect and liberate our feminine essence (any form of dancing is a quick, easy way to get out of our heads and into our bodies and have fun!). She commented she wasn’t much for dancing and while she didn’t say much more than that, I was pretty sure I knew why.
So many of us have a fear of looking foolish or being judged by other people. Many women don’t allow themselves the freedom to express through body movement because of these fears. Truly nothing stops the flow of fun quicker than the fear of being judged – you stiffen, contract and box yourself in – almost like putting on a straight jacket. It’s almost impossible to have fun when you feel so constrained! On the other hand, as soon as you release the fear of looking silly, you’re able to let loose and have a great time. Make the declaration that you are letting go of caring what others think and you are FREE to have fun!
- Declare to Nourish Your Mind, Body, and Well-Being
You may decide that this is the month you’re going to release those last five pounds you’ve been holding onto or finally get back into your favorite old jeans that have been hanging in your closet for two years. If so, fantastic! AND you can also make July the month you start meditating/praying, moving your body more or getting more sleep. This declaration is about being more caring to yourself and your body, worrying less about everyone else and focusing on what makes you feel like your most whole, happy and loving self.
- Declare to Create Balance in Your Life
Just because the kids are out of school doesn’t mean that you have to be at their beck and call every second of the day. Set some boundaries and declare your freedom from the commitments you don’t want to make. Start saying “no” instead of “yes,” and don’t feel guilty about it! Your life doesn’t have to revolve around your kids’ and other people’s demands. They may not like it initially but that doesn’t mean it’s wrong of you to do. So stand firm! Set your boundaries and you will find much more freedom in your life balance.
Which of these declarations speak to you? Do you have one of your own for July? Leave a comment below and tell me how you’re going to revel in your freedom this summer!
