Happy Independence Day weekend for all of those in the US... and the rest of our friends around the world! I was curious about some of the historical facts about the Fourth of July as I sat down to write this email and so I turned to everyone's expert Source - Google. :)
For those who also didn't pay attention well in history class, July 4th is the day that the original Congress approved but did not sign the Declaration of Independence, the document that claimed that the 13 United Colonies were Free and Independent States from Great Britain. This following line stood out to me on the Constitution Facts website: "The significant aspect of the Declaration of the Independence is that it changed the American 'rebellion' against Great Britain into a 'revolution.'"
This word 'revolution' came up over the past weekend when I was away with friends. I was sharing my belief that our world is evolving into more and more Love and a friend questioned why then so many hate-filled people are stepping up into power and why anger and hatred fills the news / social media.
Yes, in order for Love to spread, humanity has to get so uncomfortable with hate that they will reject it and turn instead to Love.
It is exactly what happened with our original settlers in this country. They had to get so uncomfortable with power OVER that they would step up and claim power WITH, power FOR, power AMONG. And from that Revolution, a new country was created, based on freedom and equality.
Individuals, uniting together to create something new. Each one having his or her own understanding of Life, but sharing it in community.
So here we sit at another July 4th weekend, exploring the same topics. Life is amazing, isn't it?! We are continually offered the opportunity to create and recreate what we want to experience in our journeys.
Today I challenge you to go IN and explore this for yourself.
We will be gathering in the Soul Shine community on Sunday to explore these topics in community. I would love for you to join us and bring your energy to the Soul conversation.
I commit to showing up and providing a clear channel for Source / God / Creator to guide us through the meditation into greater clarity and Love.
Yup, I just claimed that!
I know it's not me and my busy mind creating the magic each week - it's me the Soul, showing up and allowing Love to flow through. And if you haven't experienced it yet... it's pretty amazing!
So, if it feels in alignment for you, here are a few details to confirm your easy arrival for the weekend. Happy Independence Day weekend!
P.S. If you're looking for a little musical inspiration to guide you in this discovery, my suggestion is Dust and Disquiet by Caspian. Play it a few times and see what it stirs up in your heart. xoxo
