Golden: a celebration of freedom

Living my life like it’s golden

This song speaks to me.  Whenever I play it, my soul soars, my heart sings and I move my body to the awesome beat. The song is called Golden by Jill Scott.  Here are the lyrics.  May we all find this freedom, may we all realize we have the power to be free, we don’t have to wait for anyone to give it to us, to pull it off the shelf, to celebrate ourselves and to live our true lives.

I’m taking my freedom,
Pulling it off the shelf,
Putting it on my chain,
Wear it around my neck,
I’m taking my freedom,
Putting it in my car,
Wherever I choose to go,
It will take me far,

I’m taking my own freedom
Putting it in my song,
Singing loud and strong,
Grooving all day long,
I’m taking my freedom,
Putting it in my stroll,
I’ll be high-steppin’ y’all,
Letting the joy unfold,

I’m holding on to my freedom,
Can’t take it from me,
I was born into it,
It comes naturally,
I’m strumming my own freedom,
Playing the God in me,
Representing his glory,
Hope he’s proud of me,

Livin’ my life like it’s golden,
It really matters to me, Ohhh

The chorus is “livin’ my life like it’s golden” over and over with different arrangements.  It’s awesome.  She even recognizes how we all have divinity within us as she sings, “I’m strumming my own freedom, playing the God in me, representing his glory.”  We are all of God, of the Creator, of the Ultimate, of the Source, whatever you want to call it.  We all have divine gifts that are untapped, if we can give ourselves permission, if we choose freedom, if we choose to live, breathe and celebrate life and ourselves, we will soar, we will be limitless, we will be astounded by what we had inside, our true power that was so covered up, so burdened by stored emotions, stored pain, if we can let it go, choose life, choose freedom like Jill Scott sings about, life will be easy as it was meant to be.  I’m starting to live my life like it’s Golden and man oh man, it is ever different, and I will continue to explore my untapped potential, the divine abilities that I have, that we all have and I will sing the song of freedom as I move through this life.

(If you interested in learning about your divine abilities, check out and his book, “Living in a Body on a Planet: Your Divine Abilities.”  Since reading that book, I’ve learned how to clear out density (we all know density, it’s that weight on your shoulders, the cramps in your belly, that persistent knot in your back)  in my body just by telling my body it’s time to let it go, to dissolve it, fascinating stuff, I’ll write about it soon).
