Giving ourselves permission to “be” requires us to let go of our preconceived notions, mindsets and beliefs of how we should live and choose to follow our heart. Remember, when we had twenty minutes for recess? The bell would ring, and for those twenty precious minutes, time stood still and the universe of possibility opened up to us. As children, we yielded to this freedom of spirit knowing that nothing else really mattered. However, as adults, many of us feel resigned, overwhelmed, and even tired from the challenging pace of endless to do lists and tasks that require our time and attention. As difficult as it is to take time to be, we must give ourselves permission to do what makes our heart sing and what makes our being come alive.
So much of our lives is spent pleasing or seeking approval from others whether it’s our boss, partner or dear friend. We try to validate our existence from these outside sources instead of giving ourselves permission to follow our inside source. Yet, our brain stores patterns, mindsets and beliefs that dictate what we should do instead of what our heart desires. Our true being is pure light and love so we must give ourselves permission to dance in the light, play in the possibilities and fully express who we are.
The universal principle of permission is essential to channeling light as information to spiritually guide our choices for well-being, abundance and fulfillment. This powerful tool sets our spirit free from the negative thought processes that bind us to our present circumstances. It clears the way for us to make the discerning choices that are closer to our soul’s journey. This covenant we make to expressing our being more than our past programming is our divine connection to light.
