The Statue of Liberty Is Stepping Out
Did you know that the Statue of Liberty isn't standing still? If you notice her right foot, you can see by its position that she’s about to take a step forward. Lady Liberty embodies the fact that our true security lies in adventure. And near her right foot there are broken chains, representing freedom from oppression; the shackles of fear, doubt and worry that often hinder us from taking that crucial first step toward our desires. Whatever you believe you can accomplish or have faith in achieving, take the first step.
She holds a tablet inscribed with Roman numerals reading "July 4, 1776," symbolizing America's Declaration of Independence. This highlights the truth that when we make a decision – our personal Declaration of Independence – to boldly take a step toward our desire, the universe will conspire in our favor. Providence will illuminate our path, symbolized by the torch she holds high. As you move forward, you will be guided by your intuition.
When we step in the direction of our desire, we are crowned with favor, just as she is. By choosing to follow the promptings of our heart we feel empowered, enthusiastic, and radiant. The seven points, which are rays of light atop her crown symbolize this state of consciousness. When we let our light shine we inspire others to do the same. The fact that there are seven rays underscores the universality of Liberty’s message as being applicable to everyone across all seven continents and the seven seas. She emphasizes the spiritual truth that you can embark on the transformative journey towards realizing your dreams regardless of who or where you are – when you step out boldly.
