Truth is as much a part of this human existence as breathing. While the breath is meant to keep the body alive, truth is meant for the soul. If you are living and speaking your truth, the soul thrives and manifests greatness in your life.
It is a rare individual today who has the courage to live truth and manifest a life that is worthy of their existence. It is too often we allow other people's fears and beliefs frame our world and our existence. This cuts us off from the boundless and completeness of our existence and the universal whole that we begin to find wants and needs. The truth is we want and need for nothing if we allow ourselves to flow with the abundance of truth and connection to all that is around us.
There are those of you who feel like is difficult. That is something you have been taught and is not of the higher powers and the realm. That is of the controlling few who know of your true greatness but fear it lest you cannot be controlled. There are many such groups and their time for existence is quickly coming to an end. Fear not the end of these controllers, rejoice your greatness and all will be as it is intended.
Humans have another belief that they live with that is causing great harm to the rest of the universe...the belief they are alone in this vastness. There are countless individuals, species, beings, as so on that live in the vast expanse of the universe. Believing you are alone is arrogant and keeps you separated for us. This is not how it is meant to be. You have forgotten your long past and are under the delusion that you are unique. You are unique in your capacity as a human but you are not unique in your capacity to live life. Indeed, when you decide to connect with the greater wholeness you will be humbled by the truth of your humanity in comparison with the greater good.
We are here to help you and we are here to guide you. This is what you require at this time. In comparisons with most other beings in the other realms, humanity is in its infancy and it just being to learn how to walk. You will, and are falling down many times and we are here to pick you up. You cannot complete this journey and evolution on your own so please do not even try. We are here to help you and guide you because we have already been through the stage you are currently in.
Do not let others' fear hold you back. Know your truth. Know your vastness and endlessness. Know you are loved.
We thank you for your time.

It has been said the #1 fear humans experience is the fear of public speaking. This is because we fear rejection and being ostracized. Humans are social beings who need community and if we reach into our distant and not so distant past (like last week's ice storm), we know humans survived by coming together in packs.
It is also said our #2 fear is dying. I believe it is connected to the unknown. What does it mean when we die? Where do we go? Is that it? Do we only get one chance at this thing called life? Regardless of what your beliefs are, I would challenge this fear. I would suggest we are NOT afraid of dying...we are afraid of not having LIVED.
Having hit 50 years old last year brought a great truth to me. I had not truly lived in those 50 years. So many opportunities I said no to because I was afraid of being judged, ostracized. As a child, the expression I heard most often and took to heart was "don't embarrass me." My magically free spirit was suddenly boxed in by another person's insecurities and fear of judgment. I made that insecurity and fear my own. I lived someone else's belief.
Let's be clear on something. As a child, I had no control over what my parents and other adults taught me but as an adult, I am at choice as to what I do with those teachings. I can continue to live my life by those beliefs or I could choose to unlearn and find my truth. That is totally my choice. I also have forgiven myself for what I have or have not done in my life. My past has made me who I am today and I quite love myself.
I consider myself a change agent. I love waking people up. I love the idea of making others aware of their own greatness. Once they get past their own limiting beliefs and the light in their eyes spark, I continue to fan the flame until it is fully ignited and burning through the resistance of self-doubt. Everyone is truly capable of greatness and we each are entitled to live that life.
We are not made to be small and insignificant. We are made to live in the full glory of who we are and who we choose to be. There are too many graveyards filled with unfulfilled dreams and glory. We define what our dreams are. We define what glory means. It could be as incredible as being a stay at home parent or as monumental as climbing Mount Everest. There is no judgement in what you believe your dreams and glory are. We are not here to compare dreams and glory, to say mine is better than yours. We are here to explore this thing called life in any way we sit fit and that works for us. Our hearts are filled with potential and when we engage that potential the world is never the same. The world evolves, grows and is that much brighter because you had the courage to say YES to life.
Say YES to life. Say YES to life. SAY YES TO LIFE!
At the beginning of this blog, I mentioned the #1 fear of humans is public speaking because we are afraid of being judged and ostracized. The #2 fear is dying. I would challenge the two are actually very deeply linked in that every day we continue to fear judgement and suppress our dreams is another day where our souls die a little more until one day, we have no soul left, the flame is smothered and we simply wait for our time to die.
Every day is the first day of the rest of our lives. What are you going to do with the time you have left? Are you going to say YES to life or are you going to follow the rest of the living dead?
