Independence Day

For a long time, I have known that there is a book inside of me waiting to be written – my journey into consciousness. What has been holding me back is the uncertainty of what is safe to share. I keep coming up with every excuse of why I shouldn’t write the book. What will my parents think? What will my husband think? What will my children think? What is safe to share?

My friend Anthony has been a catalyst for me nudging me gently yet persistently to get started. I verbally expressed my feelings about writing the book during my show on Monday with Jill Lebeau. Yesterday, I received a text from my friend Robin telling me she had just listened to the show and she had 3 words for me, “WRITE THE BOOK.” I just laughed because Anthony had sent me the same message via Facebook shortly before.

Anthony suggested that I release anyone and anything that was holding me back to the full moon of which I did last night. I woke up this morning at 4:00 am when my husband left for work. Thinking that I was going back to sleep for 2 more hours, Spirit had other plans for me this morning. I grasped the crystals I had been sleeping with and asked Spirit to show me what I needed to know.

In an instant, a rush of memories flooded me – one right after the other. I realized that they were showing me what I needed to share, what mattered, what was important. These memories I was shown are the pivotal ones that impacted me greatly. Today is Independence Day, and I am free. My past does not define me yet I acknowledge the experiences that have made me the person I am today.

As the tears began to flow, I looked at the time on the clock. Showing 5:20, I got out of bed to retrieve Doreen Virtue’s Angels Numbers 101 which states, “Trust that Heaven is helping you change your life in positive ways.” I acknowledge this.

I turned on the computer to read today’s DailyOm message titled, “Life Transitions: The Death and Rebirth of Self.” The final sentence of the article conveys what today is all about in an extremely powerful way, “We can surrender to this process, letting go of our past self with great love and gratitude, and welcoming the new with an open mind and heart, ready for our next phase of life.”

Today is Independence Day, and I am free!
