Claiming Your Sovereignty

As the world shifts and changes in profound ways, it is now more important than ever to stand strong in our truth and in our light. Many of us are awakening to ever-deepening levels of awareness and to a greater understanding of our life path and purpose. The veil is being lifted, and while we are all connected, the ways we each experience this unveiling depends on our unique path. This increasing clarity and awareness often happens layer by layer; we gain greater insights as we are ready to receive and understand them. As we gain new perspectives, such as an awareness of who we truly are and who we are meant to be in this lifetime (understanding that this can evolve throughout our lives as we grow), staying in our lane and staying in our light is so important, especially in the current energetic landscape.

Maintaining our connection to the heart and practicing compassion and kindness are some of the most powerful ways we can navigate the world and our own lives. Our connection to the heart allows us to stayed attuned to our intuition and our highest guidance so we can make the best choices and live in alignment with our truth. From that place of alignment, we become aware of our true power and gain the clarity that we are already free; we are already sovereign. Knowing this helps us to stand strong in our integrity and navigate life in a way that is right for us. It guides the thoughts we think, which create our reality and inform the decisions that we make. It’s the difference between being under the influence of our higher power or not.

It can be helpful to remind ourselves of our inherent sovereignty anytime we realize we are feeling oppressed, controlled, powerless, or helpless. We cannot be controlled unless we allow ourselves to be, because true power comes from within. A simple yet effective mantra is: I am already free. I am already sovereign. I am the creator of my own reality. Focusing on those words while breathing deeply, sitting with the intention, seeing yourself as sovereign, and really feeling your own power can stop the momentum of unwanted feelings. Coming back to this practice over and over, as often as you need to, helps shift your energy and beliefs over time through focused effort, concentration, and practice.

Remembering our inner power and inherent freedom helps us to flow with the heart-centered connection we have to the highest aspects of ourselves. When we become aware of our sovereignty and true inner strength, we can respect the freedom and individuality of others, whether or not we agree with their choices. We are ultimately and primarily responsible for ourselves, the ways in which we navigate the world, and the choices that we make. Claiming responsibility for our own alignment and choices is a way of claiming our sovereignty and standing in our individual power and integrity.
