July heralds in memories of childhood for me because both my parents were born in July, as well as my sister and myself. In remembering my youth, I recall being painfully shy and afraid of conflict, as well as feeling embarrassed to be overly sensitive to other’s emotions. As I grew into adulthood, I learned to find my voice, develop self-confidence and cultivate my gift of intuition. Inner freedom happened when I released those old limiting beliefs from childhood about not being good enough and feeling like I was faulty for being so psychically sensitive. But, these childhood patterns can rear up from time to time. As long as I am willing to overcome those fears and manifest my greater self, I know freedom. During this month of July which celebrates independence, I invite you to shake off any old beliefs that are keeping you small and come home to your truest intuitive, happy self.
