What is sovereignty and why is it essential to our conscious living.
I believe, alongside many others, that Sovereignty is the way to be internally resourced. The ability to navigate the external by bearing witness to our human selves, while simultaneously cultivating the intention of love, gratitude, joy, peace, equanimity, trust, and empowerment within.
From a perspective of human development, we know that whatever suffering or struggles we identify with, are simply our responses to our life experiences, ways that we’ve learned to protect ourselves and survive our life challenges and or traumas, we can begin to let them go and lean into the presence of the now.
In the now moment we just are. We are not the future and the past has already happened.
In the now we can respond to life in the presence of love. I love the analogy of the preconditioned self. Perhaps we might call it the innocence within all of us.
An example might be when we are holding a newborn child. If you’ve had the opportunity to be in such grace, you can feel the energy of your preconditioned self. The child looks to the caregiver, and begins to attach, completely and unabashedly vulnerable and open to love.
Yet what often happens is our loved ones might not be fully awakened. They might not know how to be fully present for this little being of light.
To no fault of their own, this loved one might unknowingly and unconsciously not respond to the child’s needs in the way the child’s soul being needs in any given moment.
This is the beginning of the conditioned self. If the baby cries and its needs are met they learn to trust and feel that they are worthy of being cared for.
If they are not over time the child begins to internalize different information, perhaps that they are not worthy, or that they cannot trust themselves or others.
All are based on the sublet behaviors of the caregiver. This can lead us into dysfunctional patterns as a means to get our needs met.
If we are given enough in the way that our unique beings each need, we learn that we are worthy, that we can trust ourselves and those around us.
How many of us were in family systems that were dysfunctional, perhaps generations of dysfunction, trauma, and abuse, explicit and implicit.
Unconscious patterns that play out based on generational unconsciousness. We don’t need to judge this as bad or good, previous generations simply did not know.
We are emerging into a new time of awakening on the planet. I believe we are shifting out of the patriarchy and into more wholeness of the masculine and feminine in balance as nature intended. Hence the power and greed that has been pervasive throughout time is beginning to crumple, as it tries to grasp on by keeping women as the incubators, fearful of the unknown…
becoming aligned with our whole being-ness.
The dance of the feminine and masculine.
The patriarchy system of the court demonstrated its overreach by taking away women’s right to choose. To me, this is an aggressive act of fear, of feeling threatened by the subconscious knowing that the feminine is emerging..
We as a species are evolving what it means to be human to live fully awake, cultivating awareness of the wisdom that we are all one, deserving of love, equality, and to live in our sovereignty. Having the ability to bear witness upon our humanness, with the knowing that we are more than our mind and body. As we practice we become no longer tethered to the external.. we deepen our knowing of being internally resourced through our heart.
This is a time that many spiritual teachings have been talking about for decades. This is a time of great upheaval, distress, chaos, and uncertainty. As we see the paradigms of what we have known fall apart, we have the opportunity to step into this present moment, to pay attention, and become intentional of how we show up. We are moving through the density of our 3D world and into the light of our multi-dimensional selves. Living in our Sovereignty allows us to become grounded in the energies of love and light. We are all part of this change.
So let us start by getting into our bodies.
