Everything always starts with our permission. To experience anything in our lives we must first give it permission to come into our experience. So today let us give ourselves permission to be great. Let us give ourselves permission to shine our light regardless of external circumstances. Let us be loving, kind, and generous, and let us allow ourselves to fully and completely express those sacred qualities of Spirit that are at the core of our being—those sacred qualities that are, in fact, who and what we really are. So right now in this moment, acknowledge that you have your own permission to be great. Acknowledge that you have given yourself your authorization to let your Deepest Authentic Self shine today. You will transform your experience in wondrous and magnificent ways.
