Success & Happiness Series #6 – Face Your Fears

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”~ Marianne Williamson

Becoming who we’re truly meant to BE is both exhilarating and challenging. Sometimes we hang out in the “who-do-you-think-you-are” zone. Negative thoughts zap our energy, downplay our talents and sabotage our creativity. We ask — who do I think I am? What if I fail? What if I succeed?

What if my life could be bigger than I ever imagined? Will people think I’m too big for my britches? When we surrender to the Divine (God/Spirit/Source/ Universe) knowing that thy will be done, not my will be done, we release ourselves. You are a channel for the spirit of Divine energy to flow through. Without your art, your words of inspiration, your constant presence, your witty comeback, and your sweet smile — the world wouldn’t be as colorful a place.

Your purpose is to shift the puzzle pieces between you and me, and him and her, and we and thee. Each step you take, each hand you shake, each smile you share, each laugh, each tear, each experience you encounter with another is a SHARED experience. You can’t move (emotionally or physically) without moving another.

Let’s push through our fears, stop standing still, quit playing small, and really start living! Let’s create a life with passion and purpose and remember that at our core we are Divine. What if we woke up every day and simply acknowledged that? How differently would we treat ourselves? When we courageously step forward into our true selves, we are an example for others. As we wake up and light our fire, we help others turn their sparks into flames.
