People do change, and things can change, once we correct the negative
thinking that keeps us stuck in a fearful mindset. Once we believe that
change is a possibility, and we come from a mindset of love for ourselves
and empathy for all that we have endured, we immediately make a shift
from feelings of fear to an abundance of love.
When I am faced with a harsh reality that brings fear, I feel like I want

the moment and identify it. This is an opportunity to deepen our faith, to
experience freedom, and to be fearless in experiencing our experiences.
Fear is an unhealthy habit. The secret to breaking this habit is a fourletter
Letting Our Vulnerability Emerge!

for how we present.
Vulnerability is born on a spiritual path where you are certain you are
supported, guided, and loved by the Universe. This heightens your faith
in feeling free to divorce from the ego, which fuels fear. Extinguish the
ego with L.O.V.E. for Ego is not connected to Spirit. Show ego the way

“What is the worst that could happen if I do not try to control the
outcome of this situation?”
“What action would serve me best in this moment?”
