Everything you would like to experience in life is just beyond F.E.A.R.
False Evidence Appearing Real
It is amazing the stories we get caught up in when faced with challenges, obstacles or problems that life shows us on a daily basis…the chatter starts:
- “this is not supposed to be this way” or
- “this shouldn’t be happening”
- “Why me?”
- “If I was just good enough”
- “This is too difficult/hard”
- “I must work hard/longer/smarter”
- “If only this would happen”
- “If I could just…”
These stories lead us to building a picture of our life that’s not accurate. We spend a lot of our time, not to mention huge amounts of energy and effort to build elaborate pictures in our minds. We decide how things should look or we gather evidence from past experiences and then say “I knew that would happen…”, “This is how it’s always been…” when in reality its only happened once or twice.
So how...Read More

At some point in your life, you have to simply let go of the past… whether its letting go of a job where you feel like you’re dying a slow death, a business that no longer brings Joy or any kind of fulfillment, a relationship that was really over a years ago, or an expensive piece of jewellery that was given to you by your former mother-in-law!
When you let go, you create space for something infinitely better to come into your life.
So why is it that we make the mistake of holding on?
There is only one reason: fear.
We think to ourselves things like…
“What if I let go of this job and then the management change happens that turns this company into a wonderful place to work?”
“What if he leaves that husband stealer and comes back to me, and he’s upset that I got rid of the necklace that his mother gave...Read More

Are you a worrier? Do you constantly go over every “what if” possible? Does your mind conjure horrible images of what may or may not happen? When you try to make a decision, do worries freeze you in your tracks? If so, the following tips will help you to stop worrying and start living again. You’ll be able to take action, solve problems, make better decisions and finally relax.
When you worry your body pumps out stress hormones by the bucketful. Instead of sitting and thinking about what’s bothering you, get up and do something. Whether you can actually take action toward solving the problem you’re worrying about or just need to get your mind off of worrying in general, movement helps to release pent-up energy and funnel it in another direction. Exercise, do a load of laundry or...Read More

There have been times in my life when this has been too true, sometimes to my own detriment, because I have ignored my own authentic needs and pushed harder and faster to achieve what I thought I needed to achieve. I have a large body of students that I guide on their self-development journey and I take that responsibility & joy to heart and always work for their highest will and good. It’s not because I’m a guru or saint, I’m not, I’m way to human for that (even though a saint is just a sinner who never gave up) I’m on the path like everyone else and sometimes I stumble and fall. I have learnt (through extensive training) to train my ego to go into service to my soul and in doing so have an infinite resource of patience,...Read More

First of all, I would like to thank Joanne for this question and I will try to answer it to the best of my ability.
It is difficult not to take this behaviour to heart especially when it comes from a loved one, close friend or associate. This behaviour tends to come from not being able to see beyond self at any one given time, people get stuck in what they think are their pressing needs and the drive to fulfil those needs takes precedence over everything else. At that moment they cannot see the big picture or have a real problem seeing the situation from anyone else point of view (they are stuck in their own delusions/story and unfortunately ego gone crazy). It maybe when someone thinks they are being asked to step up to the plate and change a behaviour which might take them out of their comfort zone, or they feel they...Read More
