Celebrating independence is not just about our independence from Britain. It is truly about our independence from our fears which seek to control us. Lack of Healing and Integrating of our shadow self and our inner child, allows our internal fears to keep us from living our best version of ourselves. What are you ready to heal in order to have true Independence?
Those who came before us and fought for freedom intended to sever the ties to a system that was tyrannical in rule. This “enemy” sought to regulate and control. Tried to prevent those pursuing happiness and rob them of their liberties.
Many of us find ourselves fighting the "enemy" within. This enemy also has the ability to control us by creating fear and detachment from our higher self. The battle can continue for years, as we try to push forward in life and leave our former self behind.
We fight and fight and fight. However, this constant resistance prevents the integration of who we are and who we want to be from existing. This keeps the war alive.
Sometimes it is hard to tell just what it is we are seeking freedom from. Our fears are based on years of programming, as well as our inner child and shadow self. These fears become very powerful. They are connected to a very powerful part of who we are. Fear thinks it is keeping us safe and protect us from things we no longer need protection from. Our present and adult self does not realize this.
As we heal and grow we can persevere with great courage. We are no longer at war. We begin to understand the shadow self and wounds of the inner child. We embrace them and integrate them with who we are. They no longer control us through fear. We no longer need protection from "fear" and there is no more "enemy". We are strong, we are one.
Our independence strengthens us to pursue happiness and live out our dreams.

Renee Masse is a gifted astrologer, empath, holistic nutritionist, and certified Reiki Master-Teacher. Her spiritual quest began before she was a teenager, and has lead to many metaphysical studies. Her passion is not only to practice and teach Reiki, but to educate and counsel individuals to honor, understand, and evolve through the ancient art of astrology. Renee views the natal chart as a metaphorical fingerprint that highlights each person's uniqueness and how each one contributes to the whole. In addition to natal charts, Renee also loves counseling couples on compatibility, and doing children's charts. This helps parents understand their child in a different sense that can lead to better support and growth.
Her interest in the metaphysical had lead her to working with Oracle. At the age of 16 she had learned how to decipher and interpret Tarot cards and ancient Runes. Using this method, as well as channeling and using her empathic gifts, can help to support and guide you on your journey.
Renee graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Nutrition Science in 2012, and has since worked with over 700 clients by educating to better nutrition, as well as supporting healthy weight loss, and weight management.
