The choice is yours
The truth unfolding
This is the post that will call you in or call you out.
I have debated writing this. Yet, when we speak the truth of what we feel and know for ourselves, it brings clarity for all. So, I will share what has been growing in me in hopes that you find your own clarity.
A story of sovereignty
In January 2019, I painted "Sovereignty.” At the time I associated sovereignty with spiritual freedom, our natural right to choose and live in the exact manner in which we are called. I believed the barriers to this were the thoughts and beliefs that circulated in us.
By the end of 2019, on the winter solstice to be exact, I received the clear direction that how I feel is my choice. “I choose to feel good” became a directive as 2020 began. The painting “Choice Point” explores this theme.
As 2020 progressed, the seed of life symbol guided me to get down to the essential building block of who I am. I sensed that this seed was the solid and immutable foundation I needed for all my choices to succeed. From that seed, limitless possibilities and choices would be possible and sustainable. “Limitless” explores this understanding.
In July, the theme of freedom returned for exploration. It was a few months into the change. Shelter at home had ended, but masks and new measures were becoming imbedded. The Freedom Series paintings explore freedom as a state of inner limitlessness from self-judgement and beliefs. See the exhibit here.
On Monhegan Island in August and September, I discovered freedom through play. Immersing my body in moving water brought a sense of play, excitement, and freedom. I shared words and songs with you from the understandings that were awakening in me. Songs, poems, and the new series “I set myself free” was born.
All this inner work was essential preparation for the next understanding.
It began to emerge three weeks ago. I was called to look more deeply into sovereignty. I believed that the only prison I was in was the one I created in my mind through fear, anxiety, unworthiness, etc. But I am learning that the restrictions we have within us are mirrored outside of us in a much more tangible way than I ever dreamed.
What does this mean?
That your sovereignty depends on both the inner work as well as concrete external steps to claim yourself as a living being of this land who controls what happens in your life, with your property, and to your body.
I am just beginning the process of researching and understanding. The implications are almost too much to believe. The information is vast, sometimes cryptic, and answers are not easy to come by. But I am committed to understanding how we, as living beings, children of the earth and stars, step fully into the freedom that is our right and create societies and communities of loving kindness for all living beings.
This is my truth.
I invite you to join me.
The choice is yours.
