This week I’m shining a light on the intersecting themes of Foundation Building: Acknowledgment, Celebration and Freedom.
In the US we are celebrating the anniversary of the birth of our country, founded on a vision of humanity based in freedom. It is also the anniversary of our weekly Friday Focus. We find ourselves reflecting on what has been created, and celebrating what is to come. At The Baca Journey, we’ve been building a foundation for you to discover and embrace more and more of the truth of who you are. We trust that this has been useful for you, providing an arena for a deeper journey into self-discovery and creative manifestation.
Acknowledgment Creates Meaning
When you acknowledge something in your life, you choose which aspects to remember. You determine how to characterize them. You create meaning by where you place your attention.
Look for the gem amidst the rubbish. Don’t life’s challenges offer you the potential for new awareness? Your choices create a memory in the feeling body. This cellular memory is what energetically moves you forward to your next step.
When you go beyond the act of celebration that sets your focus in the past, you experience an energy that opens to the future. Any time a picture is fulfilled, there must be a new one with new aspects and a new dynamic. Celebration sets the tone for the next series of manifestations. The importance of the celebration is not about what has been, but about what is able to come next, that which is to be expanded in the next moment.
Do you acknowledge and celebrate how you have been victorious in your life? What can you acknowledge about the foundation you have built? What does it allow you to do? How do you move forward from what you have created? How do you create freedom in your life?
Acknowledgment sparks your freedom.
Take a breath. Release it. Take another. Devote some dedicated time of concentration/meditation. It doesn’t need to be hours of quiet, perhaps only 15 minutes. Then allow the question to simmer within you. Let responses bubble up into your awareness. Notice new ways of thinking, of images or ideas that arise spontaneously. Pay attention to your dreams. Let it happen. Be aware. See where it leads you next. Let yourself savor this process of receiving from yourself. Don’t judge whatever comes up, just receive it. Make notes.
You may want to share something from this process. Sharing is an important way to anchor an insight in your body. It leads you to deeper insight. It stimulates action. Feel free to use this arena to share whatever moves you.
