Declare Your Independence!

By Maryann Patalano, Licensed RScP

Today is Independence Day. As a Spiritual Leader, I would encourage you to contemplate if you believe your consciousness is independent or dependent.  Merriam-Webster defines independent as:

“(1) not subject to control by others:  self-governing (2) :  not affiliated with a larger controlling unit

Are you subject to the control of the thoughts, beliefs and wishes of others? Are you affiliated with a large controlling unit known as your “past” or subconscious mind? Believe it or not you are a “self-governing” individual, or being. Only you can Declare Your Independence from being dependent upon following states of consciousness or circumstances:

  • The past
  • Emotional pain
  • Worry
  • Anxiety
  • Fear
  • Lack
  • Limitation
  • Scarcity
  • Sickness
  • Meekness
  • Hate
  • Negativity
  • Doubt

As a self-governing being, you reign supreme over the jurisdiction of your consciousness! This means that you are endowed with the FREEDOM to consciously take control of the mental, physical and spiritual laws of your life. You are the ruler of your kingdom; as such it is within your power to declare the following as the new laws of life that drive your consciousness (effective immediately!):

  • Faith
  • Love
  • Abundance
  • Success
  • Present moment awareness
  • Positivity
  • Happiness
  • Trust
  • Dignity
  • Health
  • Joy
  • Courage
  • Confidence

Let’s hear the roar of CELEBRATION and witness the beauty of FIREWORKS!!!   LET YOUR FREEDOM RING!
