I am no longer asking this world for anything.

I am no longer asking this world for anything.

I am not asking for permission. I am not asking for accolades or applause. I am not asking for validation or for acceptance. I am not asking for approval or reward.

I give myself permission.
I applaud my own efforts.
I validate myself.
I reward and approve myself.

Instead I will give all I have to what I love. I open my heart to all the love and magic in this world. I break the hinges off the doors to my heart so that I am never closed again.

I don’t want anything from this world.

Instead I am focused on giving to this world from the gifts of my soul, and loving from the height of my spirit. I just want to give. I want to be of service, I want to create art, opportunities, music, joy, safe places for healing, love and Magic for myself and for others. I just need to receive. To receive art, opportunity, music, joy, safe places for healing, love joy and magic.
So I will.

I am no longer asking this world for anything.

Instead I open to the knowledge that I have now, always have had, and will have in the future everything I need. I need only ask Most High, the Orisha, my deities, the universe, my ancestors and spirit guides. I rest in my faith in my spiritual team. They have always taken care of me. They will always take care of me.

What I can get is no longer important to me. Cherishing what I have and giving from the well of love in my heart is what matters most to me.

Instead of taking from this world…
I focus on giving good love, deep belly laughs, pure laughter, good art, amazing music, great kisses, deep long hugs, a good friend, a Grand lover, an amazing mother, a phenomenal artivist, a loving teacher, a fierce warrior, and a capable and worthy leader and High Priestess, to this world.

I focus on cherishing all that I have now knowing that at some point change will transition it away from me. And if change don’t take it, death surely will.

I focus on remaining open, living my life to my deepest depth, my highest heights, and authentic truth.

I don’t want anything from this world.

Instead I focus on leaving this place, this land, this earth, my home, better than I found it.

I focus on changing what I can and having faith that what I can’t change, somebody else is working on. And if they are not, I’m giving the best that I can and that’s all that matters.

When it is my time to die, I will pass from this world satisfied. I will transition whole. I will have built a legacy of love and healing that will carry me into my after life on a blessed bed of peace.

When I die, I will meet my maker full of love, and empty because I gave everything I had to this planet and to my path.

When I die, I will die happy, knowing I gave it all and I did the best I could.

I am no longer asking for anything from this world.

Instead I am asking the world of myself.
