1. Integrating Your Shadow
Spirituality isn’t all just light. It’s about wholeness. And frankly, we’re on this planet to integrate different parts of us that we haven’t yet mastered. In our 3D experience, we can integrate our heaviest shadows. As we do so, our infinite being will light up. There is nothing we can do to avoid facing our shadows. Because as we know, we can keep coming to this planet over again until we integrate it. So, actually, there is only one choice.
Every time we face our shadow, we reclaim a bit of our spiritual sovereignty. Before the integration, this was a no-go-to area for our wounded self. To avoid our shadow, we create the most elaborate system of distractions and self-sabotaging behavior. In a way, we play a game with ourselves. We’re both the one who is chasing us and the one who is escaping.
2. Stepping Into Your Power
To claim spiritual sovereignty, we have to go through the valley of our inner shadow. However uninviting it first may be, it helps us to step into our power. Tapping into our soul’s power and learning how to handle it is a key step to spiritual sovereignty.
There are many initiations and lessons that span over lifetimes regarding our power. We’re learning how to handle the power without it taking us out of our center, which eventually leads to misusing it. Because as we claim spiritual sovereignty, we’ll have more impact on others. Even if we’re not in the public eye, our energy field expands and affects more people. Therefore, we need to learn how to hold a balance—a balance in our energy, thoughts, action, and body. From my healing experience with clients, I can see that this is one of the main things that we’re here to master. And it’s also one of the things that will unlock the gates to our sovereignty.
3. DNA Activations
Another complementing way to claim your spiritual sovereignty is through DNA activations. Within each of us exists a blueprint of what we could call a higher human being. As in the ancient stories about demi-gods, we can activate certain codes within our DNA. As we do so, we step into our sovereignty more.
One way to speed up those DNA activations is to let yourself be guided by a healer. Yet bear in mind that if you have fear, resistance, or doubts about the activation process or the healer, it’s better to wait with it. This isn’t something that should be taken lightly. So, always trust your inner guidance.
In most cases, those activations take place naturally. As our consciousness changes, it automatically activates those codes. It’s not dependent on something external. The external – like being guided by a healer and teacher – can collaborate with your consciousness. But you’re never dependent on it. And for the most part, your higher self is activating you. And this sometimes can seem like co-creating with others.
4. Bring In Your Soul’s Energy
Another essential step in claiming spiritual sovereignty is to bring in your soul’s energy. The whole point of spiritual awakening is to create space for more of your soul’s energy to connect with your chakras. (I’ll be talking more about this in the future.)
We’re ready to claim spiritual sovereignty when we align our spiritual, emotional, physical, and mental bodies. As more soul’s energy pours through us, it’s easier to remember and exercise our sovereignty. Thus it’s good to build a strong connection to your soul and higher self. This truly is an essential part of the ascension process.
5. Full Responsibility
As we exercise our spiritual sovereignty, we stop running away from accepting full responsibility. First, taking on responsibility starts with mastering our minds and emotions. Then, we stop running away from our life purpose. Eventually, we realize that there are godzillions of situations where we can assume responsibility. If we don’t shy away from those opportunities, we eventually find joy in mastering various aspects of life.
There is no way to claim spiritual sovereignty without accepting responsibility. As you become accountable for your growth, an interesting thing happens; you stop waiting. Things begin to move fast in your life. And your playground – your reality – expands. And thus, there will be even more opportunities to practice your sovereignty.
6. Daily Embodiment
Claiming spiritual sovereignty isn’t about one thing we do or realize, and then we act as a sovereign being always without a failure. Rather it’s a journey of daily embodiment. Daily embodiment means that you bring sovereignty into your life. And you use any and every opportunity to approach it from a sovereign state of being. Of course, you’ll fail. Millions of times. But those failures will do something quite magical for you. They will train your consciousness, and then one day, without noticing it, you’ll be more sovereign than you’ve ever realized.
