The Bill of Rights is a group of ten amendments to the constitution that was ratified in 1791. These amendments provide for many, if not all, of the freedoms we enjoy in the U.S. today. It was a long process and fraught with opposition. Eventually this incredible list of rights, including freedom of religion, speech and press, made it to the finish line.
Have you had to amend a belief because it didn’t work for you? Do you have a personal bill of rights?
Here are five suggested amendments for living a fuller and healthier you.
No person or persons shall put you down or disparage you in any way.
Detach instantly from negative comments or put-downs. Do not carry the words with you for they will rob you of your power. Let go of it all and step into peace.
All persons have the freedom to explore any and all belief systems and practices, no matter how silly!
We are all on a journey to find the truth for ourselves. That journey may take you around the world or right next door. Be led by your intuition and feed your curiosity. Your spirit will find its home if you let it.
You have the right to a second chance, and so does everyone else.
There is so much good in every person. Often, all it needs is a chance. Give everyone the opportunity to surprise and delight you. And most importantly, give yourself that chance.
You have the right to forgive.
If you really want to feel your freedom, forgive someone. Forgive someone you have been holding anger towards for years. Go ahead, you’ll never feel more free than to forgive.
You have the right to love.
Go where the love is. Walk away from places of strife and turmoil. If you are not safe to love to your fullest, look elsewhere! Your love is a powerful force and the more you give away, the more will return to you.
You have the right to tap into the source.
Look inside yourself and the entire universe is there. Change yourself and the world will change, too. You can reach for the source of everything and grow with it and because of it. You are the source. No one can take it from you.
These rights are self-evident. They are known because they are true. Give yourself every right to grow and expand in your consciousness and the rest will follow. And if you find your belief system isn’t giving you freedom and joy, then, make an amendment!
