9 Valuable Gifts From Fear

In my 25+ years I have coached and counseling thousands of people all over world, fear continues to be the #1 roadblock to people’s ability to succeed and thrive.

When fear  takes dominion over your thoughts and emotions, life feels scary, heavy and hard. You become separated from your True Self and God’s love and Grace.

People continually ask me how to get rid of their fear which is NOT the way to live in this new energy and move into higher states of consciousness. Resisting fear or any uncomfortable feeling and thought will keep those feelings and thoughts alive and strong in your life. What you resist, persists. You cannot “think” yourself out of feeling fear to shift into real sustained courage.  Until you begin to work with fear differently, fear will control your life.

One of the first steps is to be open to see fear as a guide rather than an enemy.

Here are 9 ways to receive gifts from fear:

1. We scare ourselves all the time. When no apparent danger is evident, our minds conjure up stories that we believe to be true. What ifs, worse case scenarios, anticipated outcomes that rarely ever happen unless we are intent in creating them! Ask yourself, “In this moment, what is the truth?”

2. When feeling fear, our thoughts are focused on the future. When feeling pain, we are recreating the past. We are not living in the present which is the only place that is NOW. Knowing “where” you are living through your attention invites you to come back into the present moment and choose where to place your attention and intention.

3. Emotions such as anger cover up fear. Why? We feel more powerfull in our anger than we do in our fear. Other emotions include depression, hurt, grief, and blame. Having the willingness and courage to go beneath the surface of anger allows you to experience deeper healing and transformation.

4. We sabotage ourselves when we feel frightened. Procrastination, rationalizations, avoidance, tolerating things, making excuses, being controlling, becoming aggressive or submissive… are some examples of how fear misdirects us from our dreams and desires.

When fears emerge through self-sabotage, that can be a signal that your inner child is desperate for some attention and comfort. Take some to go within and be a loving presence to that part of you in need.

5. Fear can be a motivator or a barrier. Fear can ignite action or become a roadblock when facing change.  Imagine instead of withdrawing in fear, you took a deep breath and decided to GO FOR IT! And if the fears are strong, that is a sign that you are on the verge of an important shift!

The strength of the fear and resistance is a vibrational match for the wonderful gift that is waiting for you on the other side of that roadblock. That’s the Law of Polarity. You came into this life with EVERYTHING you need to succeed and thrive.

6. Fears are transformed by love and faith. We can learn to rewrite the tapes we play in our minds so that the messages we tell ourselves feed us rather than deplete us. Love and fear cannot coexist in the same space.

Rather than resisting your fears, imagine loving them instead. Love your fears for the ways they serve you to grow through experience and self-reflection and bring you “home” to who you really are.

7. Fear has a positive value. If we were completely fearless and lacked caution, we might place ourselves in harm’s way, make rash decisions that have dire consequences, or make decisions we deeply regret.

Instead of looking at how you can get “rid” of your fears or condemn them, consider all the ways your fears help you.

8. Fear is a sign that we are separated from our spiritual connection. Unless there is evidence of immediate danger or circumstances that validate a fear response, our fears are activated by our subconscious beliefs and fueled by the mind.

Realizing this separation is an invitation to reconnect with the God of your understand and to deepen that relationship.

9. 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”.

Your soul would never ask you to do anything that would deliberately harm you or put you in the path of danger. Why would it?

Money and fear are the two most powerfull motivators or deflators today.  Living a joyfull and abundant life is within your grasp if you are willing to courageously liberate yourself from fears, doubts, and not “enoughness” to know your value, claim your Divine power and live your purpose NOW!

Are You Having A Love/Hate Relationship With Your Self?

If you were asked these questions:

What do you love about yourself?

What makes you fabulous, wonderfull, and lovable?

What do you value most about yourself?

What would you answer?

You might automatically answer things like: your accomplishments, personal successes, things you do for others…. Many people identify more with what they do rather than who they are. Those are great answers and I invite you to look who you are in addition to identifying with what you do!

So, what would you answer?

If you have some difficulty answering, you are not alone.

Lack or low self love affects your finances, health, relationships, business, well-being, and connection to God. Without self-love you are cut off from the full flow of wealth and all forms of abundance that enriches your life.

It’s not your fault.

Suffering caused by a lack of self-love is a dis-ease humanity has cultivated for generations. You have been impacted by your family, cultural conditioning and past experiences.

If you have been on an inner journey to heal and transform yourself, you may still find yourself struggling to release those beliefs and patterns that are still running your life. And no doubt you are feeling frustrated and wonder what the heck it will take to be liberated from the grip and pain your mind creates, right?

You cannot USE your mind to CHANGE your mind.

Some patterns are so deep that it can take quite some time to completely dismantle them with God’s help. You must be willing to listen to your guidance and keep going without quitting five minutes before the miracle might happen. Your soul knows the way to bring you “home”. You gotta trust your Self and be committed to your liberation.

That’s the journey I have been on for almost three decades. I have faced and felt self- judgments, unforgiveness, feelings of unworthiness, fears, doubts,  guilt and anger I harbored towards myself for choices I made, things I did or didn’t do…. I sure was not loving me! 

The truth was that pain and fears  closed my heart and cut me off from truly giving and receiving love. I was starving for meaningfull connections with others, my Self and most importantly, with God. 

I am happier with myself and my life is rich and abundant.

Is love, abundance, and peace what you long for?

Is connection to the Divine what your heart is yearning for?

Love is the way…and it begins with you..inside

Do you resonate with what I have been saying?

 Ready to fall in deeper love with your Self?

Join me in the next Pathways to Awakening Journey Into Self- Love, beginning Tuesday, November 13.

The weekly meditations and deepening processes that have catapulted past participants into higher states of joy, abundance, peace…are all designed in the moment by God to work on conscious and subconscious levels to heal and open your heart and create reconnection with your Sacred Self. Adding EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) has made the program even more potent.

Imagine releasing old pain, beliefs, and patterns you have been carrying in your heart for years with Grace, even joy?

Impossible? Not in this program !

Go read
what other folks have said and experienced.

If the program resonates with your heart, LISTEN and reserve your seat with the early tuition before it expires on November 9!

You deserve it!! :)

Tithing - A Critical Practice To Being Prosperous And Happy

“The more we discover the magnitude and abundance of God’s gifts, the more we will find ourselves.” ~ Mother Theresa

“Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into” ~ Wayne Dyer

In a conversation with a dear friend and colleague, the subject of money and abundance came up. She has had a very prosperous year personally and in her business despite all the media reports of the economic climate. 

Was her marketing expertise and knowledge the most important keys to her success and abundance? Yes….and no.

First, I want to make a comment about abundance.  In most dictionaries abundance is defined as, “A great or plentiful amount, an overflowing fullness, and an over-sufficiency and wealth.” 

Often people equate abundance strictly in terms of money and they miss out in recognizing all the forms abundance can take in addition to money such as having an abundance of love, time, health,  support from friends and colleagues, happy memories, knowledge, being willing to forgive….

Being prosperous means giving and receiving abundance with joyfull gratitude and humility for the gifts and blessings that flow to and from you.

Give what you most want to receive in your life for the joy of prospering another, NOT for the purpose of getting something in return. You cannot enjoy the riches of the universe unless you are willing to share them with others. This is the meaning of the Law of Abundance, or The Divine Law if Prosperity.

The spirit of this law asks us to take an action in order to express thanks for the abundance that has already manifested in our life and for the greater good that is yet to come.

So, I asked her, “What else contributed to your having such a great financial and abundant year while many folks are struggling to pay their bills?” 

She  said two things  added to her success…

The first was really listening to her inner guidance, inspiration, and instincts to make business and life decisions that aligned with her spirit. 

That’s what I believe is a key factor in having a prosperous life – listening to and following the calling of your heart.


She tithes consistently.

I have always admired her generosity and loving spirit.

My favorite book on tithing is written by my good friend Paula Langguth Ryan called, Giving Thanks: The Art of Tithing.

What exactly is a tithe?

On page 22, Paula says, “Tithing is about saying thank you which always begins with putting some gratitude in our attitude. Giving thanks is about tithing with our money, but also with our thoughts, words, actions, time, efforts, and possessions.”

She reminds us to give thanks by sharing a loving and gratefull heart with everyone and everything that comes into our life for the role they play even if that role is unwelcome.

She also says that,“ Tithing proves us with a proven systematic way to multiply our good through a demonstration of our willingness to give back one-tenth of everything we‘ve been given. Paula emphasizes that, “You do not an obligation to tithe, you have an opportunity to tithe.”

We tithe as a gesture of gratitude for what we have already been given and as a symbol of our gratitude for and faith in the fact that greater good is coming to us. Tithing is a way of showing we are ready, willing, and able to embrace that increased abundance.

The word tithe is based on the word tenth, which is believed to be a powerfull number of increase. When we joyfully and selflessly givethanks to God  by sharing one tenth of the good we receive, we connect to the flow of abundance and our blessings are multiplied tenfold, even one hundredfold.”

Tithing is an act of faith rather than a duty or obligation. Tithing might be called a love offering, a free will gift or blessing that is shared willingly with another without any expectation of repayment. The size of the gift does not matter, the intention of the offering does.

Everything that is freely given with thanks will be multiplied and returned to you in expected and unexpected ways – The Divine Law of Prosperity

Are you hoarding your good?

Do you withhold sharing with others because you fear you won’t have enough?

Do you look to get as much as you can for free?

And how would you feel about receiving bountiful riches without doing ANYTHING?

Scarcity thinking and poverty consciousness will constantly block the flow of abundance, money, and opportunities coming into your life that the Universe desires to give you.

In essence, because we are all connected in Oneness, what you withhold from sharing with others, you withhold from yourself. In the joyfullness of giving, you automatically receive.

Prosperity and abundance isn’t just about having money. Imagine having more joy, more love, health and vitality, greater freedom, peace of mind, and time to be with the people and things you love.

A consistent practice with tithing will increase your inner wisdom, judgment, health, wealth, fulfillment in relationships, spiritual connection, and open your receptivity to receive what you truly need without fear or expectations.

Give with joyfull thanksgiving rather than annoyance, desperation, frustration, or in the hopes and expectation of getting something back. Give without strings attached as you would offer any gift from the heart.

Imagine what you can then share with others?

Who to tithe to?

Give freely and generously to those who spiritually nourish and feed you. Your local spiritual centers, leaders, teachers, mentors are great places to begin.

Personally, I often tithe money to friends and colleagues who have been of service to me by offering me healing sessions, business advice and expertise. I also enjoy gifting to my local non-profit organization that feeds families in the area so they don’t go hungry.

Tithe to whoever brings you spiritual inspiration, joy, help, and comfort… as a way of saying “thank you” to God and to them.”   Be sure to write your tithe check first even if you cannot initially give a full 10%.

If you are not tithing consistently because you fear not “having enough” your fear is blocking the flow of money and abundance flowing to YOU. Your fear is creating the ongoing experience of struggle and lack in your life.

Tithe with joy and gratitude.

Open your heart, mind, and body to recognize all the gifts, blessings, and miracles of abundance that flows to you. You can change your life experience with money and abundance now by sharing your talents, gifts, time, expertise, AND money generously.

Be on the lookout for the many forms abundance takes from the penny on the sidewalk, a smile from a stranger, a new client, a thank you email from a grateful client for friend, a new business opportunity…

Track your blessings daily  in a journal and remember to say “Thank you.” for EVERY love offering that comes to you and share freely when you feel guided to bless another.

What comes back might not initially be in the form of money. For example, you might receive ideas, resources, connections to others, that will improve your financial situation is the long term.

Be open to receive the delightful ways the Universe responds to your desires, needs when you open your heart and checkbook in faith and gratitude.

Begin today and allow the abundance of the Universe to flow to you and through you.

PS!!  If you are ready to be liberated from pain, struggle, and fear (especially with money) to “come home” to who you really are and your destiny, my new program, “Pathways To Awakening” will show you how.

Redefining Productivity

On a call yesterday with one of my mastermind groups the question of defining productivity was raised. One of the women was sharing about how busy she was.

In addition to her own media relations company, she has been working on launching a new spiritual network site and preparing for her second book campaign.

Her commitments have kept her working weekends, long hours into the night and she was hoping for some personal time this weekend. She also said her spiritual practices and the activities that feed her spirit and body have been sorely sacrificed to respond to the demands of her deadlines and client needs.

Another member said she was feeling an exhaustion she had never felt before. After four long years of pursuing a life purpose and passion, miracles were popping up all around her and she was having a hard time keeping up with everything. There was still so much to pull together and she was hoping to have one day to just sleep decompress.

Both ladies are high energy go, go, go women with a strong work ethic and a pull to be productive especially when the opportunities arise.


What does that really mean?

And according to who?????

I was facing a similar question this past week.

Last weekend, a dear friend gifted me with the opportunity to become a Oneness Blessing Giver.  The weekend is called “The Oneness Awakening Course”.

The program began on Friday evening and ran through Sunday night. What an incredible experience!  I played full out – opening myself to experience and participate in all of the exercises, healing, heart openings, and deepening with Source (God). The group was amazing, the environment was magical, and the facilitator was skillful and loving.

She suggested we take at least three days to integrate the weekend especially if we wanted to offer any blessings to our folks.

The next day I felt dopey. All I wanted to do was rest, sleep and do my spiritual practices in between working with a couple of clients I had already scheduled. So, I gave myself permission to take the day for myself.

The next day I still felt sluggish, foggy, and physically tired even after sleeping deeply the night before. So, in between some prior appointments and a little bit of work, I rested.

Guilt started creeping in.

Was I being too self-indulgent?

I wasn’t being PRODUCTIVE, right? I had work to do and I was just lying around!

I resisted the urge to do more and rested. Frankly, I didn’t have the energy, passion, or focus to push.

By the third day, I felt a little more energized and the pull to rest was still very strong.

More guilt.

 I was reminded by my friend Anita Pathik Law who wrote a blog post on Chemicalization:

She wrote:  ”For many of us, it can feel like the age old “two steps forward, five steps back.” What was all happy, harmonious and easily working, suddenly (or so it seems) seems to fall apart. I see this in spiritual development and healing all the time. The newly found nirvana is met with an earthquake of contrary energy. 

We feel tested in our new level of faith and feel like the honeymoon is over. It’s painful and messy and tests us in huge ways. And, it is normal! In fact, this universal phenomenon actually has a name and is called chemicalization.
Emmet Fox says this, “It seems as though everything begins to go wrong at once. This may be disconcerting, but it is really a good sign. Suppose your whole world seems to rock on its foundation. Hold on steadily, and let it rock, and when the rocking is over, the picture will have reassembled itself into something much nearer to your heart’s desire.”
The challenge is not giving up five minutes before the miracle. The opportunity is to allow the natural process and not give into the potential doubt that can come when faced with a barrage of “evidence” that is contrary to your faith, and the commitments made from your newly expanded consciousness.
New awareness requires a chemicalization of sorts – an integration and re-patterning—that shakes everything up and out of you so you can decide what to keep and what to release.  Our belief bag needs to get dumped so we can truly choose, from this new vibration, what we will continue to carry into the creation of our future reality.
Catherine Ponder, in her book “The Dynamic Laws of Healing”, says “Chemicalization results when an old set of ideas, an old way of life, tries to hold on, while a new and better way of thinking is trying to appear.”

Thank you Anita! The exhaustion I was feeling was part of my own chemicalization process! Prioritizing my self-care to support my renewal and integration was essential.

Was it productive?

Hell yeah!

Allowing myself the time and space to just “be” helped me to gain greater clarity and intuitive direction about some of my next steps.

Being productive isn’t all about how much you do or based on your ability to prove how much you have accomplished. Or having to earn something to be given the right to relax, slow down, play…

I believe true success is independent of what you do; rather it is about who you are and how you show up in the world, spiritually awake or asleep.

Taking time to rest, eat well, have fun, connect with loving relationships, nourish yourself when your body and soul is crying out is an act of love that will fortify you, lift your heart, open your creative juices, invite prosperity, new opportunities….

We service our cars when they need maintenance so they will continue to run well and yet we can easily neglect our own needs until we create something dramatic or painfull to catch out attention. Yikes!


Creating sacred space to commune with your SELF – mind, body, and spirit takes nothing away for what may feel to be important. Tuning in to respond to your needs and soul urgings is part of the continuum of living an inspired joyfull life.

When we feel vital and alive, we are at our most productive and creative because we are manifesting from love and joy.

Challenge Your Rules

I have to…

I should…

If I don’t do this I will be…..

I can’t have this until I

I can’t say no because if I do I…

To be successful I

I have to work hard to…..

Whose rules are those????

It’s one thing to have guidelines and values to live by that support you in personally and professionally flourishing as well as consciously evolving.

It’s another to be living by standards that hold you hostage and suck the life out of you.

If you struggle with giving yourself permission to have greater balance in your life, take a look at some of your rules. Do they expand or constrict you?

These are new times. Traditional ways of working, living, being are falling apart. Old paradigms, rules, standards are shifting to allow us a greater sense of freedom to become the true creators of our reality.

We are redefining our relationships, businesses and ourselves. We are experimenting with new ways of thinking, feeling, and doing things that can feel scary, strange, and even undeserving. This is new territory and it is unfamiliar. 

What’s exciting is that we have the opportunity to create a whole new reality, individually and collectively through the choices we make every moment of every day.

What is your heart crying out for?

What are you denying yourself that it’s time to say yes to?

What choices will you make today to align with your SELF?

Which rules need to be changed?



PS!!! Do you struggle to make decisions? Do you procrastinate and miss opportunities because you feel confused, overwhelmed, or scared?  Do you worry about making the right decisions because you fear making mistakes?

Say goodbye to indecision.

Coaches and Consultants – Are You Fulfilling Your Purpose AND Getting Paid For It?

By Kathleen Gage

If you’re a coach and/or consultant it’s likely you began your business because you have a need to make a difference. There’s also a good chance you would do what you do even if you didn’t get paid for it.

This is when you know your career is a great match for your passion; you love it so much you can’t help but do it.

However, in order to continue doing what you love and run it like a business you absolutely must get paid for your services. The challenge for many coaches and consultants, especially those new to running a business is this; they either don’t know what to charge, when to charge or how to ask for the paid business. There seems to be an invisible line of comfort one crosses when money figures into the equation.

Anyone who is going to not only survive, but thrive in this industry, needs to establish from the beginning that they not only deserve to get paid, but paid well for services rendered.

There is never a lack of people who will gladly use your services and tell you what a difference you are making for them until you talk money. Then many of your greatest cheerleaders suddenly disappear leaving you to doubt your abilities and/or wonder why you ever thought giving your services away would somehow turn a free client into a paid client.

Unfortunately, many coaches and consultants are under the false impression that if they can just show how wonderful they are money will somehow jump from the free clients pockets into their bank account. Rarely is this the case.

Granted, there are occasions where it is acceptable to “showcase” what you do. But knowing where to draw the line is critical to building a thriving business.

From the beginning establish within your own mind that it is okay to charge. What you charge is based on a number of factors:

  • Uniqueness of what you offer
  • Skill set
  • Expertise
  • Track record of success
  • Experience
  • Market demand

As much as you know your clients need a coach and/or consultant to address specific areas, it is likely you would benefit from having a mentor who will guide you through the process of how to go from free to fee. The sooner you get on board with the “I deserve to be paid” mindset the sooner your business is to grow. The sooner your business grows the more you can live your passion and focus on what you do best – coach and consult.

Transformation Is A Process NOT A Technique

For the past 25 years of coaching and counseling thousands of people all over the world, I have come to know how critical it is to do the introspective inner work and healing.  

Allowing ourselves to heal and grow is an act of love.

Fears, not feeling good enough, self-sabotage are indicators of the stuff we carry around from the past, because when we had experiences that were upsetting and confusing,  we lacked an exit valve to express and resolve our thoughts and feeling. So we held them in our bodies, our mind, and in our hearts in order to survive.

What is unresolved from the past separates us from who we really are, our connection with The Divine, and blocks the happiness, love, success, peace…. we desire and long for.

When people ask:

How do I get rid of this…pain, fear, situation?

What is the quickest and most effective way to stop feeling, doing…?

Or say,

I thought I was done with this!

They feel:


Anger (mostly at themselves)



Not good enough






I shake my head with love and compassion.

That’s the language of fear and pain.

You might be feeling frustrated, unhappy with where you are, angry about your life and with yourself, …good.  The fears, blocks, pain struggles are blessings because they are showing what is asking to be healed and released that is often unconscious.

Sometimes we shift when we have a new awareness or a change in perspective. Sometimes the message is unclear or buried inside which is why digging deeper reveals the answers and the pathways for healing to occur.

Do you love and welcome these gifts when they show up or do you judge, resist, blame, get angry and frustrated and fight against those feeling which only gives them more power to hang around and impact your life?

What you resist, persists.

I’ve been working with Marianne Williamson’s new book, A Course in Weight Loss: 21 Spiritual Lessons for Surrendering Your Weight Forever which is an answer to a prayer because it shined a light on the next step in my own transformation and healing. I have been using food to manage a lot of unresolved feelings from the past….until recently.

Dealing with weight has been the one specific area I have felt like a failure despite working numerous tools and powerfull healing modalities. Nothing seemed to change my pattern of emotional eating. Over the years, I have put on more weight which only added to my frustration and upset.

Last month I gifted myself with quality time to work with Marianne’s book, rolled up my sleeves and dug deeper into my feelings and stories from the past that were bubbling to the surface, all filled with pain, anger, and deep grief. I have been literally, wearing my pain on my body!

Actually, I was surprised at how much sadness I had been holding onto in my heart and in my body for decades without consciously realizing it! This process of embracing the shadows and pain within myself has been a humbling and joyfull experience of self-love and compassion.

That’s the key.

We heal and release experiences by walking through them not around them. Trying to get rid of unwanted thoughts, feelings, and behaviors with quick fixes and techniques that manage rather than release them are temporary band aids.

Choose to use these feelings and situations to create breakthroughs and restore alignment with your natural state of love and power.

You cannot heal pain and move forward absent of love, forgiveness, and compassion.

Whatever grand idea you have for an ideal life, pales in comparison to the vision God has for you. I firmly believe that we cannot truly have the life we came here to live without God’s love, guidance, and support.

And if your work and passion is to help others live a rich and full life, you must do this work so that you be a guide for others.

Life is a journey of courage – to boldly go where you might want to avoid so you can free yourself  to truly live and prosper. To create a welcoming place to raise your consciousness, know your value, claim your Divine POWER and life your life purpose.

Life is not a race. Transformation is a process not a technique. You cannot outrun yourself. Wherever you go, whatever you do, you take your baggage with you. Your experiences are opportunities for you to grow and evolve as an individual and collectively with the world. There is no end to your growth and evolution.

Each next phase of growth and expansion may reveal additional healing for greater alignment and expression of who you really are. When you do the work and difficulties arise, you are able to move through them with more grace and ease. When you resist you will only create more suffering and struggle for yourself.

We often needed to be to be reminded of the work it is time to do now to reach the next phase of our life. You are meant to flourish and prosper!

That’s why I was Divinely guided to create my 12-week program, Awakening Your Courageous Heart beginning January 26.
