Something that my clients very often bring to the table during our sessions is the fear of voicing and doing what they know in their hearts they’ve been called to do, afraid of what others will think or say.
The fear of being judged is so great that many of us stay silent for a very long time, and for some throughout this lifetime.
What I’ve found is that very often it has to do with the fact that you’ve chosen to change direction in your life or career.
For some, like me, it’s a 180 degree turn.
Maybe you used to be a graphic designer and now you’re a yoga instructor or you used to be a school teacher and now you’re a couples therapist or like me, a Key Account Manager in the financial sector and now my path is guiding people from fear to love.
Doing that 180 can be a daunting task. But you did not get this task by chance.
While you know in your heart something else is calling you, you still block your own way or rather part of you does. The Ego.
Let me first tell you… it’s not about you… it never is…
It’s about your message, your purpose, your calling, your why.
The very specific reason you’re here right this very moment.
“Your passage through time and space is not at random. You cannot but be in the right place, at the right time.”

You’re on this earth to spread love and you’re a unique specimen. There’s only one single you who can do it they way you can.
Only one with the assignments you’ve been given. Your life, your experiences, and yes, your struggles.
What you have to do is get out of the way.
Whether you choose to let the love seep through your pores by blogging about your everyday life, publishing a book, through poetry or painting, yoga or working out, as a stylist, therapist, coach, banker or as a school teacher, then remember that whatever road you’re on, it’s not about the external factors but about the light you carry on the inside.
The light that you are, no matter your external circumstances.
Embarking on your spiritual journey from fear to love is not an easy one, so please carry love in your heart.
Be patient and love yourself through it, but do not let yourself be concerned with thoughts about what others will think, do or say.
Ego will try and hold you back.
Throughout your upbringing you’ve been conditioned to place your personal value on external factors. It’s the way of Ego.
However, you can return to love in a split second, even though most don’t choose that.
Consider for a moment what you gain from standing in your own way, because honestly – there’s no one out there. The voices you hear are a manifestation of your own fears.
If immediately you hear a voice saying “it gives me absolutely nothing to block my own way!” then we’re on the right track.
It’s the voice of Ego.
Or maybe you experience complete silence, being paralyzed, frozen and numbed to a point where you can neither hear nor feel anything. If so, breathe deeply and choose love.
What you’re experiencing is simply one of the Ego’s flight strategies.
“No one has ever lived who has not experienced some light and some thing.”

Once you embark on this journey of moving from fear to love, the Ego knows it’s dying and so it will bring up anything and everything in it’s arsenal to hold you back.
It can become vicious to a degree you’ve never experienced before.
You can choose to use whatever comes up as a way out of fear and into love.
You do that by simply denying to follow it’s instructions, and instead choosing love.
So – here’s my invitation to you.
Move out of your Ego.
Release, surrender, and let love and your Essence guide you. This is the place of miracles.
