I recently had the privilege of attending this amazing conference.
It was one of the most powerful things I've ever experienced.
It seems that in many ways, we find ourselves "afraid".
We often assume that someone we know has no fear-
Or, not the kind that occasionally or regularly
causes us to question ourselves, and our lives.
As I work with clients, one of the things that continues to amaze me,
is that fear is an "everyone" challenge.
It is what stands in the way of true freedom-
and, it is a reality of being human.
It isn't something we simply rid ourselves of-
it is something to remind ourselves not to give power to...
and, to move beyond.
The day before this conference, I had fear in my heart- in my body-
Fear that was triggered inside of a situation that caused me to question myself,
my passion, my direction- all the things I am most sure of when I'm not in that state of mind.
I prayed deeply that morning- I was in tears- humbling myself for the clarity and strength
to embrace all that I'd trusted just 24 hours earlier.
At times I have heard God's voice so clearly- and in that, been able to hear and trust my own.
But, on this particular day, He would speak to me in a way that was nothing short of miraculous.
I'd decided not to cycle that day, but instead, take a long walk in the woods and by a small lake.
As I left on the trail, I questioned whether or not I needed pure silence, or... inspiration.
I looked at my Youtube playlist.
The very first one, was a famous life coach (Rich Litvin) that I deeply respect and admire.
I felt compelled to listen.
As I began to hear his conversation with another consultant/coach-
it was the exact topic in my own heart. It was as if I was sitting in that chair.
The words that he had for this conflicted consultant/coach were the words I'd told myself
and believed just the day before.
My body immediately felt light-my heart opened, my spirit felt alive with this clarity-
The magic of divine intervention- never to be underestimated.
The unexpected affirmation was as if God was reminding me-
You are not alone;
follow your heart...
trust your inner voice;
Do not give your power away.
This, I believe is an empirical truth for us all.
We need to simply remind ourselves, and be reminded.
To be unafraid.
