It's a perfect time to talk about freedom today since here in the U.S., we just celebrated our Independence Day. I know I’ve written about it before, but it’s something that many forget to acknowledge: how lucky we are to have the freedoms that people in other countries, and sometimes even other U.S. States, don’t have. We’re only as free as those around us. If there are oppressed peoples in the world, then we don’t have as much freedom as we could because we're impacted by that resonance.
Take for instance Afghanistan- the Taliban just outlawed music. Music! They say it’s associated with sin and anybody caught playing it will be put to death. Death! If you put on music and danced around the room recently, can you imagine that that could cause death in another country?
Sound is incredibly uplifting and has the power to transform darkness into light. It doesn’t surprise me that that’s the last thing that those in power want in that area; they want to be entrenched in the dark.
Let's take a moment right now and collectively, everyone reading this, send light to an area of the world in which the freedoms are phenomenally repressed. Maybe Afghanistan is where your heart is drawn to helping, or maybe there are other areas in which the freedoms are horribly restricted that move you on a soul level. Send some support now to those who are trapped in the darkness and would like freedom. Imagine embers of light filling their hearts and minds, helping create transformation.
This is how you make a difference in the world; you send light/love/energy to those who don’t have what you have freely.
Turning the attention back on you, because nothing changes until you do, where can you be freer in your own life? Where do you restrict yourself to the point of rigid control instead of allowing flow and joy? Send light to those places in you as well.
Next, give gratitude for the freedoms you do have: the freedom to love who you want to love, marry who you want to marry, live where you want to live, wear the clothes you want to wear, to drive, to protest and speak your mind, etc. Don’t take those freedoms for granted. You even have the freedom to think what you want and create your life based on your beliefs. That’s huge! This is a planet of free will- own yours and never surrender it.
The more you value freedom and appreciate it, the more the energy of freedom can increase in the world. Let’s bring more light and more freedom into being through our focus and appreciation. Together, we can move mountains.
Me, Tina Germain, just sharing ways to make you the best you can be!
