Courage: Liberation From Five Myths That Can Keep You Stuck In Fear

“When experiencing new and exciting changes in life how can you expect to know how it will all go? There are times when you’re required to step blindly off the ledge only to find that with faith you are transported on the wings of love to a new and beautiful vista to explore! Today is such a day.. let fear be what it is, and let faith help you soar regardless of the fear.” – Colette Baron-Reid

What you may not realize is that from the moment you were conceived through age 6, you have been bombarded by thousands of emotional charges that have impacted on who you have become. In addition to what you have inherited from your ancestors and your family, your world has been shaped by cultural conditioning and your personal life experiences.

Fear has been a dominant energy on this planet for thousands of years. 2012 heralded a shift of consciousness and a new era of love, peace, and prosperity. The grip of fear will begin to wane as you “come home” and wake up to who you really are with the Divine presence within you to be your guiding Light.

You may view fear as an enemy, something to be gotten rid of rather than seeing fear’s value as a friend and pathway to your homecoming.  Fear can keep you stuck and frozen or be a motivator and catalyst for change. Healthy fear can be a positive benefit to your life. Irrational fear can keep you separate from the life you were born to live and separate from God.

When your fears become strong, you might get very small because a younger part of you, an inner child is feeling frightened and needing some comfort.

As long as you judge anything about yourself to be bad or wrong, the peace and self love you seek (that we all seek) will not happen.  To feel whole means creating a welcoming place within you to love and embrace all of you – your thoughts, your beliefs, your feelings and your actions.  The first step is a willingness to love and accept yourself as you are with COURAGE and an open heart.

You are not broken, you do not need to be fixed, there is nothing wrong with you.

Changing your relationship with fear is a step forward to reunite you with your Sacred Self and the Divine while calming the fearfull “little you” inside.

Here are 5 myths many folks have about fear:

1) Using affirmations will change your fear beliefs if you say and write them for 21 days. Some people swear by affirmations and they do have some benefit. BUT, your subconscious is in charge of what you think, feel and do as a human being. Affirmations only work with the conscious mind that operates a teeny tiny part of your mind and don’t go deep enough to create long-last shifts in beliefs.

2) Positive mindset will change fears. Relying on your “attitude” to shift fears and worry will work in short bursts. Fears return because no permanent inner shift has occurred. Real transformation goes beyond mindset.

3) If you face fear head on, the fear will become overwhelming. Attempting to repress fear only gives it more power to impact your life especially through self-sabotage. Shining a light on the illusions and fear your mind has created invites them to crumble, freeing you from its grip forever. Transformation can occur in seconds.

4) Fear is an enemy and something to be gotten rid of. Whatever you judge within yourself as bad or wrong creates more separation and pain from who you really are and the connection with Source. Fear can be used positively when turned into any ally.

Read my article, “9 Valuable Gifts from Fear”

5) Courage is not the absence of fear. Courage is about following your heart in spite of what your mind and feelings are telling you; being willing to take those leaps of faith to follow your Divine urges. Faith is feeling trust before the evidence shows up and having the courage to do whatever it takes “in fear”.

Take an honest look at what is driving your thoughts, feelings, and actions to create your current reality.

Is it love? Is it faith? Is it courage?  Is it Grace?

Or is fear, pain, struggle and scarcity?

Is your scaredy cat still controlling your life and keeping you from feeling fully alive and prosperous???

Are you believing everything you THINK?

This is a time for new beginnings and shedding old paradigms that suck the life out of your heart.

This is YOUR year!

Five Spiritual Laws That Strengthen Or Shake Faith and Trust, Part 5

The Law of Intention and Desire

I hope you have been enjoying this 5-part series! Here is the last one.

The Law of Intention and Desire truly goes hand in hand with The Law of Expectation.

The Law of Intention reminds us that when we align with a clear intention and deep passion in mind, body and spirit we set the conditions to powerfully attract what we intend to create.

This Law is based on the fact that there is always an infinite amount of energy and information present to create what ever you desire! And energy always follows intent.

Desirable changes and manifestations depend on conscious ATTENTION and INTENTION.

Focused attention and intention creates a force that magnetizes to you what you most desire. Whatever you give attention to increases energetically.

Attention and deep desire energize The Law of Attraction.

Removing your attention causes the energies to scatter and dissipate.

Getting to your core desire and designing an intention in affirmative language also sets a tone for our energy and decision making.

I shake my head when I hear people express frustration with their life when the they invest a small portion of their time, spiritual practices, heart-centered attitude and actions on attracting what they say they want and spend the bulk of their time in a negative mindset.

For example, you may create an intention to have a make a difference in the world and make money doing what you love.

Everything you think, do and say must align with that intention in order for it to be made manifest in your physical reality to the degree that it is a match – or better yet, surpasses your desire. The core energies of The Law of Intention are clarity and alignment.

You might be creating blocks in what you desire to create because there is conscious and unconscious intention in conflict because of your life experiences!

You might deeply desire to be of help to others and harbor feelings of unforgiveness towards people.

You might desire loving relationships and be struggle with loving yourself.

And what you want as a human being might be very different from the intentions of your soul.

Your soul’s purpose for being here in a physical body is to grow and be a Creator.

As a human being, your intentions might be on success, material possessions, making money rather than aligning with the desires of your soul.

Can you have both?

Of course! 

With the shift of consciousness happening on the planet, what you put your attention and intention on must prioritize your soul’s purpose and intention to be in harmony with the New Golden Age, a time for joy, love, and prosperity.

With an intention for the future, your attention must be in the present, which is conscious awareness that is real and eternal. Choose to lead from your heart in taking inspired action that will manifest your intentions for tomorrow!

What is essential is to detach from the outcome so that you are not struggling against the present moment in the pursuit of manifesting your future!

Your focused intention lays the groundwork for effortless, spontaneous expression of your desires! This is the path of Grace.

For the past year, one of my deepest desires and intention has been to have unshakeable faith and trust with the God of my understanding that everything I want and need will be supplied. With life feeling upside down in so many ways, this desire and intention felt critical for me to follow my passion and purpose. Perhaps you have that same desire?

In response to my prayers, I have created and attracted a very challenging and painful year as well as a powerfully liberating and abundant one in many ways. Has my faith and trust shaken? You bet.

What has emerged from all of the flux in my life combined with deep inner transformation work IS that my faith and trust is stronger within myself AND with my Divine.

Give thought to your current desires and intentions.

What are you giving energy to?

Are you radiating from faith and trust or from desperation and fear?

Are your expectations, intentions and desires in alignment with what you truly wish to attract, consciously and unconsciously? (Inner shadow transformation, forgiveness, beliefs?)

What needs to be healed, shifted, transformed and released to manifest what you desire and intend now, and in your future?

There are dozens of Spiritual Laws at work that govern your life including the Laws of Cause & Effect, Energy, Co-Creation, Abundance, Cultural Conditioning…….You may choose to read about more of these Laws or focus on a few to align more consciously with the Universe.

Faith and trust is being challenged today as our lives change in ways we have never experienced or imagined. Understanding these Laws help to put some questions into perspective and can begin to quiet your mind.

Transition is the psychological reaction to change (anger, fear, confusion, sadness..) and is fueled by the subconscious mind; the part of the brain we cannot easily access to create shifts in the beliefs that affect emotions and actions. During intense periods of change, fears run high. Faith and trust can weaken.

That’s why I created the next Pathways to Awakening, 4-week Journey into Faith & Trust!!  This is the 5th in a series of mini journeys that have helped folks break free of the past and limitations of their mind to become more Conscious Creators in alignment with their soul and Divine destiny. 

I felt a strong Divine nudge to offer this powerfull transformational program  beginning December 6. Choose the day or evening time that is best for you and take advantage of a special tuition that expires Friday, November 30, midnight EST.

Five Spiritual Laws That Strengthen Or Shake Faith and Trust, Part 4


The Law of Expectation

(Adapted excerpt from Aligning With Destiny program with co-leader Anita Pathik Law)

“You are perfectly aligned to get the results you get.”~Dr. Stephen Covey

The Law of Expectation works in harmony with The Law of Attraction.

Energy always follows our thoughts. 

What you believe, assume, anticipate, expect or even dread or fear, consciously and subconsciously, forms the creative energy towards manifestation, and has a direct impact on the experience you create.

Expectation is an energized thought form that is highly creative in nature and may be in competition with what you want (or think you want) to create in your life.

If you believe and expect something negative to happen, you will manifest a negative outcome.

If you believe and expect good things to happen, you will attract positive experiences.

The core energies of The Law of Expectation are anticipation, faith and fear.

We become so attached to seeing things in certain ways—ways  we see ourselves and our life experiences as they relate to our current reality—that  we unconsciously limit a new reality from being experienced in our lives.

The trap is becoming so aligned with that story that it becomes your way of being.  We inadvertently reinforce our “stories” into permanence and become a “victim” in a reality that we have actively helped to create over and over and over.

Your thoughts and beliefs shape your experiences and expectations. 

If your expectation is more aligned with the undesirable, you will continue to create the undesirable.

Let’s say you desire financial prosperity and abundance in your business and life.

If what you expect is not a match to your intention – you will more likely manifest your expectation.

How you view what you attract can positively or negatively influence your faith and trust.

What you really EXPECT is:

  • You will have to work extra hard to market and increase sales, which is something you hate doing, and may feel a lack of competence, or confidence
  • You’ll be working so hard you won’t have time to have a life
  • You will lose your freedom to…
  • You will have to make sacrifices that are undesirable
  • It will only be temporary and soon you will find yourself in the same mess…. again
  • Miracles only happen to other people
  • There will always be an ebb and flow, rather than a steady stream
  • You can’t really make money doing what you love
  • People won’t pay for what you have to offer

Which ones do you relate to?

Which will ultimately win – Desire or Expectation?More often then not, expectation wins. Even if the manifestation of the desire occurs, because the expectation clouds everything you see and experience, odds are you might miss it.

Why? Because it is so different from your picture or expectation of what you wanted or intended.

“You’re always getting a perfect vibrational match to what you predominantly give your attention to. But you’ve got to make the best of it. You’ve got to vibrate slightly different from where you are if you are going to improve where you are. You can’t keep taking score of where your business is or your relationship is, or your body is without continuing to create it as it is. To make improvement, you’ve got to reach for a different thought.” - Abraham-Hicks, Tampa, FL 12/6/03

When focusing on what you wish to create and attract in your life, what expectations do you have?

Working with the Law of Attraction (LOA), remember that your beliefs, thoughts, emotions desires, and attachment to what happens are all connected with your expectations and intentions!

If your desires, intentions and expectations do not match, it’s time to look within and take responsibility for what you are creating as your reality.

Explore your positive and negative expectations with an open heart and curious mind. Suspend any judgments.

If you feel a loss of faith and trust in yourself, others, and The Divine in how your prayers and dreams are manifesting, get honest.

What were your real expectations?

Where does your faith and trust need to be strengthened?

What thought patterns do you need to shift, transform, and release?

Be willing to shine a light on any vibrational inconsistencies between your mind and your soul. By mining down to your expectations, you can see if they are a match to your desires and support them or counter them.

Part 5 is coming in a two days!

Does your faith shake?

Do you find it difficult to stand in full trust that all will be well when gripped by fear?

Does life feel unsafe?

Fear, doubt, confusion as well as excitement, passion, and wonder has made 2012 a wild emotional ride.

Do you long for inner stability and peace to know that, no matter what is happening, you will be ok?

Do You See Yourself As Prosperous?

I received this on Friday from Neale Donald Walsch and I wanted to share it with you. If you haven’t signed up for his daily notes, you’re missing some wonderfull inspiration. Read on…..


On this day of your life, I believe God wants you to know…..that if you see yourself as prosperous, you will be.

If you see yourself as continually hard up, that is exactly what you will be.

Robert Collier said that, and he was right.

Every spiritual book in contemporary times sends us the same message.

Live the reality you wish to experience, beginning now.

 Not only see yourself as prosperous, act this idea out .

You can do it in small ways. The Universe doesn’t care. It’s the energy behind the gesture that counts, not the size of the gesture.

So go ahead.

Give some money away today. Buy something special today.

Act prosperous today. The Universe will get the message when you do.


Did you love it? I did!

Law of Attraction: Creating The Impossible?

I had a great experience this week that is too good to keep to myself. It’s all true …..

December for business can often be a bit tight for many people who have service businesses like mine. This month I really felt the pinch. I’ve made some investments in growing my business and had some other expenses that really ate into my money cushion.

On Monday I took at look at my finances and I realized I didn’t have enough to cover my expenses for this month. I could  feel the fear and distress beginning to bubble up. I’m used to having a cushion and, as I sat there I realized that this situation was really between me and God/Source/The Divine/Higher Power (or whatever name you use).

Next month I have lots going on which didn’t help where I was for December.  You noticed I said was, right?

So, Monday night I meditated, put out some prayers and intentions, including asking for a specific sign from God in the form of money the following day. I asked for this sign to assure me that my prayers were heard and that The Universe was working to resolve this situation with me.

When I awoke the next day, I intuitively felt a nudge to write an email to my subscribers and offer them a 20% discount on all of my products if they placed an order within 48 hours. It was a private sale as my way of saying thank you to them and opening up my financial flow. To me that’s a win-win. I even sent out 2-3 emails within that period which, I usually balk at doing for fear of deluging my folks, and I did it anyway.

Inside of one hour after I sent out the email, I received notice of the first sale. THE SIGN I HAD ASKED FOR!

Within 48 hours I had attracted the amount of funds I needed to close the gap between my income and expenses. And it’s only the 13th of December!

I have a close friend who manifests things within hours. She is amazing. I called her on Tuesday morning to ask for her support as I moved forward with my intention. There is something very powerfull about sharing what you intend to attract and create with someone else.

When we spoke this morning we swapped stories about all the amazing things we manifested this week, including prosperity. It was very inspiring. 

I’m thrilled and so gratefull. 

You might be wondering, “How’d she do that?”

It’s not rocket science or magic.

What I did was this:

1. I clearly asked for what I needed.

2. I let go of being attached to how it came to me.

3. I listened to and followed my inner guidance which I see as Source working through me. Once I put out the request, I no longer put any attention into my worries, fears or concerns. I looked at this as a 48-hour experiment in manifestation.

4. I did whatever I felt guided to do regardless of any resistance or fear. In other words, I kicked into action.

5. I let go of the outcome and expected the best.

When things appear to be impossible, take heart. You are more powerfull that you think.

In those times of uncertainty, we are called to connect with ourselves; to who we really are inside as spiritual beings and with Source energy. We are called to listen, act and trust. That’s where the magic happens.

What magic are you ready to create? :D
