Embracing Our Fears

When I first watched this video, it brought tears to my eyes.  I was moved by the sentiment of the moment and the words.

Fear is a very powerful word.  It is in our moments of fear — doubt, worry, pain, confusion — that  we struggle with simply being comfortable living in the moment of the life placed before us.  When we let go of all our fears, greatness exists before us, through us, and with us.

I encourage you to read the words to this poem. Study them carefully.  Are you embracing the greatness that exists within you and allowing yourself to freely, passionately share that which drives, inspires, and guides you?  If not, let go of the fear that is holding you back.

You are a gift to the world.  You have a gift to share.  It is time to embrace without fear the opportunity for the world to realize how great you and your gift really are!

Our Greatest Fear —Marianne Williamson

it is our light not our darkness that most frightens us

 Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.


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 and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.

There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other

people won’t feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of
God that is within us.

It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.

Marianne Williamson
