Sometimes it’s harder to see what’s good about us than what is bad, especially when the mind launches into a self-critical cycle. The truth is, Spirit’s nexus of Heaven and Earth contributes to the ever-evolving person we are, which is to say that we are divine and human, and can respect both.

The topic on July 1, 2018, was Freedom from the Fear of Fear. Most of us are afraid of our own fear, thinking that it is a self-fulling prophecy. We want to short-circuit fear, affirm it away. Instead, we can learn how to communicate healthily with the energy of fear, to realize that while it’s not part of our true nature, it is a normal aspect of being human. This disempowers fear’s influence, allowing us to pop open a bottle of fearlessness and celebrate!
