Financial Freedom and being a Grammie
Wanting to make the world a better place probably started when I had children of my own; a larger and grander sense of purpose. Safety, protection, prosperity, comfort, health, strength, happiness; all factor in to the future goals I began to set for myself even back then in the early 80’s. Of course there was my heart’s desire even before that, however I can say with certainty that I was unconscious and making decisions that were not often in my best interests and even contrary to what I now know as my special purpose.
As my career as a probation officer (specializing in youth services and then even further to working with girls who find themselves involved in youth justice) developed, so did my sense of self as a helping professional, as a caring person and change agent, and a conscientious parent.
Oh, the mistakes I made! Mostly I am afraid, with my children, the most precious of all my interactions. As I grow each day and uncover more about my authentic self I come to see that while my intentions were always good, my commitment to change, to follow through with integrity and knowing my true purpose were not always foremost.
Today, at age 54, I can most certainly state that I am investigating, learning and practicing daily those actions that I believe are more in line with who I am and my goals for myself. And now with the super-extraordinary “special beyond belief” relationship I am developing with my grandchildren I see even more clearly how my actions impact the world. Their world, my world, the world of my children (now adults) and all of the world that I encounter.
I am coming to accept personal responsibility for all that comes in to my awareness; at home and inside my mind and body, as well as globally, with all women everywhere, and their loved ones. Everyone has a parent and someone who loves them. Everyone is my responsibility. My thoughts and actions are my responsibility. I shall continue to strive for the financial freedom which provides me the vehicle to travel and inspire, impacting all the women around the world and thereby their loved ones.
May I be safe and protected. May all people be safe and protected.
May I be peaceful and happy. May all people be peaceful and happy.
May I be healthy and strong. May all people be healthy and strong.
May I be wealthy, financially free and generous. May all people be financially free and generous.
May my life be lived joyfully and with ease. May all people have lives lived joyfully and with ease.
May I love myself exactly as I am. May all people love themselves exactly as they are.
“I love you. I am sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.” Ho’oponopono
