There is something special in the air.  I can feel it.  There is something fantastic waiting for you in 2011.  It is waiting, but it can't be found unless you seek it.  It is there for you if you are willing to step into your own brilliance.  Living in your own brilliance takes sacrifice, love, inspiration, energy and a willingness to not live in fear.  Just think about it.  What would your life be like if you were living just the way you wanted to?  You got up each morning ready for the day.  You were inspired to take one step after another towards your dream, your calling.  You are doing you!  You can make it a reality and the fuel is inspiration and NO fear.  Be phenomenal and ignite!  2011 is the year of NO fear.  What are you going to do that is fearless!

 Quote of the Month:


"Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.


 It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves,

Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?"

Marianne Williamson - A Return to Love


The Year of No Fear! Jumping Fish

The older I get, the more comfortable I am in my own skin. My husband says it is because it fits looser.   I beg to differ.  One thing that I know for sure is that I am comfortable with who I am and I no longer define my worth by other's standards.  That puts me in a very different space.  It frees me to focus on what really matters instead of what is sexy, popular or relevant by capitalistic standards.  It creates the space to dance on the floor with my dreams and turn them into reality.  Yes, age has something to do with this change in mindset, but making different decisions and beating back fear make all the difference in the world.  You are not born with the spirit of fear; it is something that takes hold of you along the way.  It was given to you with the intent to hold you back so that you do not realize just how important you are to the world.  It is time to release its hold and step fearlessly on the dance floor. 

I am a big fan of new beginnings as they bring thoughts of change.  I am not talking about a New Year resolution.  That's too temporary.  I am talking about a life change, a new way of being that starts in 2011.  What if you made a commitment to not operate in fear and uncover your calling?  What if you were meant to do something important that you never pursued because you were told it was ridiculous to even think about it?  What if you wanted to write poetry and recite it in front of a crowd, but didn't because you were told you were not talented and believed it?  What if you stayed in relationships that were damaging to your soul because you were afraid to be alone?  What if you could take the pit out of your stomach that fear created and twist that negative energy into a giant step in the other direction.  Don't accept fear.  Replace it with the fire of knowing who you are and what you are meant to do.  No fear.

I know that fighting off fear is hard and...scary.  But, think of the possibilities of living without it.  Think of what you could accomplish if you were not afraid.  If you were not capable of being afraid, what would you do?  Make a list of all the 'I coulds' that you can think of.  What a wonderful list that would be!  It may be just the things on this list that will make you join the evolution of 2011, The Year of No Fear!  Let this be the beginning of a life time of 'I did that, and that and that'.  Join me in the primal cry of our freedom.
