Why it helps to face your fears!

It has to be said that our fears feel like they are a very personal part of ourselves.  When we can expand our awareness we often find that many others may actually fear the same things. There is so much that cause people fear, and often quite unpronounceable names for the certain fears! The list covers everything. Fear of flying, cats, dogs, insects, birds, dirt, buses, etc, etc.

The list of our fears may be long or short. They may be common fears, or highly unusual ones. Our fear may range from being uncomfortable with something, to being totally unable to talk, think or deal with it at all.

I was now going to say that the best advice I’ve been given by far, is to come to terms with facing your fear.  If you can learn to even shift perspective about it slightly, then that is your first ‘Baby-step’ to overcoming your issue. It is a step that will enable you to gradually start towards shifting how you feel about it.

There is no hard and fast set of rules, but slowly and gradually examining your fears will give you the opportunity to come across ways to find new insights and perspectives which in time may help you .

The magic begins when you discover new ways and ideas on changing your thought patterns. This allows you to change your approach because you are beginning to take control of your emotions, rather than your emotions being in control of you.

It stops your fear from defining you, for example  ‘Oh here comes Mary! She’s that one that’s frightened of ……….?’

You can stop being the victim letting fear hold you back, and eventually gain your control back. It is a great triumph when you have mastered what has held you back.

I was just about to say that running away from your fears never helps in the long run! Life has a habit of bringing them back into your life again and again until you are ready to face them,  embrace them and move forward!

I wholeheartedly believe what I have written, however at the time of writing, I cannot say my son shares my sentiments! He may be  6 foot 4″ tall, and at 21 thinks he’s the man of the house, but whilst I was writing this one of his fears has just turned up!

He’s just encountered a ‘Huge’ spider in his bedroom (Really?) lol. Thinking I was asleep, he’s tried to deal with getting it out himself. (I’m having a proud moment!.) However……the spider gave chase and ran at him on the bed, before obviously putting his cloak of invisibility on!

Still not giving up, brave Dan has totally trashed his bedroom whilst trying to find it.

I guess he’s fallen back on the ‘Running from your problems’ solution, and was last seen heading downstairs to the safety of the sofa with his pillows and duvet!

The moral of this appears to be that we are all free to choose how to deal with fear! I’m now speaking as the ‘One’ who has to go spider catching, and suddenly the thought of confronting a pissed-off, big hairy spider sounds like a stupid idea! Yup, I’m not a spider fan either, so the running away option doesn’t sound like a bad idea!

Wish me luck! x


THE CODE – 10 Intentions for a Better World!

I came across these Ten Intentions for a Better World quite a while ago. They really resonated with me on a very deep level. I don’t know who the author is, but I am truly grateful for their wisdom and insight. It is recommended to read these through daily.  No matter what is going on in the World around us, we can take personal responsibility of our own intentions. We can choose our own path to creating a better world.

The First Intent – Support Life!

I refrain from opposing or harming anyone. I allow others to have their own experiences. I see life in all things and honor it as if it were my own. I support life!

The Second Intent – Seek Truth!

I follow my inner compass and discard any beliefs which are no longer serving me. I go to the source. I seek truth!

The Third Intent – Set Your Course!

I begin the creative process. I give direction to my life. I set my course!

The Fourth Intent – Simplify!

I let go so there is room for something better to come in. I intend that I Am guided, guarded, protected, and lined up with the Highest Good at all times. I trust and remain open to receive from both expected and unexpected sources. I Simplify!

The Fifth Intent – Stay Positive!

I see good, say good, and do good. I accept the gifts from all my experiences. I Am living in Grace and Gratitude. I stay positive!

The Sixth Intent – Synchronize!

After intending & surrendering, I take action following the opportunities that are presented to me. I Am in the Flow where Great Mystery and Miracles abide, fulfilling my Desires, and doing what I came here to do. I Synchronize!

The Seventh Intent – Serve Others!

I practice Love in Action. I always have enough to share, and enough to spare. I Am available to help those who need it. I Serve Others!

The Eighth Intent – Shine Your Light!

I Am a magnificent being, awakening to my Highest Potential.

I express myself with joy, smiling easily and laughing often. I Shine my Light!

The Ninth Intent – Share Your Vision!

I create my world by envisioning it, and telling others about it. I Share my Vision!

The Tenth Intent – Synergize

I see Humanity as One. I enjoy gathering with light-hearted people regularly. When we come together, we set the stage for Great Oneness to reveal itself. We Synergize!

Turn those High Vibes back On!

We are constantly reminded the importance of living a life where we consciously choose to maintain a high vibration.  The benefits of raising our frequency will improve every area of our life. The feelings of joy, love & gratitude help to maintain our positive attitude throughout the day.
However positive you feel there is bound to be times when you will encounter all kinds of problems in your life. Some simple problems may not even affect you at all. Other times you may be able to resolve them immediately, and your positive mindset will return.
Sometimes however, the problem may not be so easy to deal with. Allowing yourself the feelings of anger and resentment will not be  helpful attitudes, as they are adding more negative energy to the issue. Avoiding, denying or ignoring tactics never works in the long-term either.
These are often the deeply rooted problems that may often be caused by limiting beliefs, blockages, fear, trauma or pain, etc. The problem will remain in the far more powerful subconscious mind, where it can continue to affect your life in many ways. The negative energy will lower your vibration, and further problems will continue over time.
The first and most powerful step is to Accept the problem exists. The moment you do this, the issues are brought into your conscious mind where you can deal with them. The Act of taking Responsibility shows an Intent and commitment to healing the pain/ fear/ trauma, etc by finding the root cause where the issues begun. This may involve the possibility of looking into past lives & genetics being addressed, with a view to healing on all levels.
 The problem may be addressed yourself if you have the experience to know what to do.    If the problems turn out to be much harder than you can deal with, it could be the best idea to get advice and support.  There is vast information and helpful modalities available regarding the problems you are experiencing. Finding how far back the root cause may be will be crucial in dealing with the issue.
In most circumstances like these, I would certainly get help if you need it. Personally I recommend Sacred Activation to clear back to the root cause of the problem. The energy then no longer exists to cause further problems.

‘Believe nothing on the faith of traditions,

Even though they have been held in honor

For many generations & in diverse places.

Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it.

Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past.

Do not believe what you yourself have imagined,

Persuading yourself that a God inspires you.

Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests.

After examination, believe what you yourself have tested

And found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.’


( Inspiration from the Buddha. Learn to stand in our power, trust our intuition, and take responsibility for the beliefs we accept as Truth)

The Abundance Prayer

From the light of God that we are;

From the love of God that we are;

From the power of God that we are;

From the heart of God that we are;

Lets Decree –


We dwell in the midst of infinite abundance.

The abundance of God is our infinite source.

The river of life never stops flowing.

It flows through us into lavish expression.

Good comes to us through unexpected avenues,

And God works in a myriad of ways to bless us.


We now open our minds to receive our good.

Nothing is too good to be true.

Nothing is too wonderful to have happen.

With God as our source, nothing amazes us!

We are not burdened by thoughts of past or future;

One is gone, the other is yet to come.


By the power of our belief,

Coupled with our purposeful, fearless actions

And our deep rapport with God,

Our future is created,

And our abundance made manifest.


We ask and accept that we are lifted in this,

And every moment into higher truth.

Our minds are quiet……


From this day forward we give freely and fearlessly into life,

And life gives back to us with magnificent increase.

Blessings come in expected and unexpected ways.

God provides for us in wondrous ways for the work that we do.


I Am Indeed Grateful!

Finding your true path

I realized a long time ago that there will always be people who are smarter than me. As a teenager I remember how annoyed I used to feel knowing that whatever I did, I would never be ‘Smart’ enough. The competitive schooling where I felt my worth was judged on my marks. I always believed that I was somehow lacking in my intelligence, and a little better than average at very best.

The way we compare ourselves to others is often the driving force which governs every aspect of so many of our lives. We spend our whole time programmed into this never-ending competition, which so often results in our failure. We may always strive to be better than our classmates. We are encouraged to feel good that we did better than some of our friends, yet we are also discouraged to know we were not as intelligent as others. We often judge ourselves more harshly than others judge us. We show ourselves no compassion for the difficulties we overcome, because we are already focused on our next obstacle or difficulty.

So often this competitiveness continues for the rest of our lives. We can easily find ourselves on a continuous cycle where everything we do in life is affected by the need to be better than other people. We can be continually stressed with everything in our life.   We never celebrate our accomplishments, as there is always another mountain to climb. The constant stress governs our lifestyle choices, the position we hold at work, our homes and families, our cars and material worth and even our core beliefs about who we actually are. Our worthiness and lives are easily tainted and spoiled when we are left feeling that we should have done better and tried harder, yet still failed to do as well as some of our peers.

A lifetime of chasing unrealistic ambitions and goals can consume a person’s life force very quickly. Constantly judging your own abilities and worthiness is soul destroying. The overwhelming fear of others judging your perceived weaknesses and limitations will never bring feelings of joy and success into your life. The unbalanced lifestyle stops us from ever finding our true purpose in life.  We often leave this lifetime unfulfilled and unhappy. Even in death we feel we are judged on material wealth and the assets we leave behind.

The truth is that we don’t have to play the game of life by those rules. This understanding is often hidden from our awareness, and many times it will never be consciously realized.

Once the opportunity of living life differently is acknowledged, our whole experience and life path can be altered in a single moment.  There is a promise that life is supposed to be a journey of love, joy and abundance. We can choose to open our awareness to the new revelations that show up in our lives.

The Universe/ God/ Source provides us with challenges and lessons which enrich our understanding of the true nature of reality. We now can understand that the obstacles are not intended to overwhelm us, or cause us to feel like we are failures. They are Divinely placed before us to give us the chance to realize our full potential and uncover our spiritual gifts. The knowledge we gain in every moment allows us to walk our life’s path with wisdom and integrity. Our soul is nurtured because we have the freedom to co-create the life we were born to live.

This pathway gives us the opportunity to expand our consciousness and live from our hearts, instead of being ruled by our Ego. All the time we are continuing our journey, we are offered opportunities to open our awareness to new understandings and higher knowledge.

Often the people we had judged and competed with before, will actually become our teachers, mentors and inspirational role models. The best of them are living their life in service to humanity. They engage with us at certain times on our journey to share their perspectives and understanding of the issues we may face. It’s through their encouragement and unconditional love that we learn to trust our intuition and find our truth. Their wisdom and knowledge is given as guidance for us to find the answers that will feel in alignment with our souls. They too are on this journey, and many of them know that we are all students on this path, as well as teachers here to help each other along the way.

The life that we now have the free-will to live will be balanced, supportive and loving.  We accept the commitment of learning and re-learning lessons that will enrich our lives. We now choose to experience and integrate the ever increasing knowledge that we come to understand. We are the Seekers of Wisdom, continually expanding our consciousness by raising our vibration until we come into alignment with the new information that then comes into our knowing.

We will become aware that life was meant to be a constant search for truth and opportunities to live in ease and flow guided by the Laws which govern the Universe. We are unique and perfect already, and have nothing to prove to anyone else.

We find that the experience of profound gratitude for everything we experience, brings us even more to be grateful for. We find peace when we realize that every moment of our life is perfect exactly the way it is. Everything we encounter is for our highest and greatest good, according to Divine Will. The more open and receptive we remain regarding the lessons and challenges we face, the more information and confirmations will come into our awareness.

The wisdom we have gained is blessed even more by the absolute certainty that the success we once believed was always beyond our reach, has been with us all the time. It is the energies we choose to feel in every moment. The unconditional Love, Joy & Abundance that freely flow into every aspect of our lives, and the lives of those around us. The ability to be of service to others, and feel empathy for our brothers and sisters. The compassion and forgiveness we extend to each other , and to ourselves This is the measure of a successful life.

(This is my own view at the time of writing. Be open to your own interpretations which will resonate within your life at this point in time. Thank you & blessings x)
