July Message: Personal and Collective Sovereignty
Think about our Collective Humanity experiencing harmony, unity and together creating the best possible reality for ourselves (as a society, as communities, as countries etc). How do you picture individuals in that scenario? Do you feel that Personal Sovereignty helps to create that reality? Or do you feel that we need to set aside our Personal Sovereignty for the good of the Whole?
What is Personal Sovereignty?
At heart it's the concept of self-ownership.

This is the only place from which we can access our own personal GPS, a GPS that is designed specifically for us. This is the only place from which we can access our innate inner wisdom, inner guidance and inner truth. This is the only place from which we can tap into who we really are and access our full potential, so that we can be who we came here to be and do what we came here to do. This is the only place from which we can truly embody what we know.
True personal sovereignty can't be given to us by taking a course or reading a book. We can't #personalsovereignty it. True personal sovereignty usually is a result of having gone through the fires of various life/spiritual initations that made you grow up, walk your talk and step into your pers
