All healing is essentially the release from fear – A Course in Miracles
I believe that every single event in life happens in an opportunity to choose love over fear. – Oprah
There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life. – John Lennon
Do not believe every thought you think. – Unknown
Everything I need to know is revealed to me in the perfect time, space, and sequence. (via Louise Hay)
I will know everything I need to know, as I need to know it. I don’t have to worry & I don’t have to rush.
I observe the thoughts that float through my mind without judgement. I notice the voice of fear and the voice of love. I choose love.
I come to you today with a very special topic: How to make the right decision!
Decisions are scary and they freak-me-the-eff-out. #letsbereal
However, there is one simple trick that helps me know what to do every single time.
This video breaks it down for you:
The answer: Follow love.
You see, we always have the opportunity to choose love over fear.
But to do this, we have to be able recognize when the root of our thought is fear and when the root of our thoughts is love.
For me, when a thought is rooted in love, it has always been the right direction.
So how do you know the difference?
Love feels empowering. Love feels expansive. Love feels good. Love lights you up. Love says: “Oh shit! This will be scary, but I got it! I can do it. God is on my side. I am capable. I am powerful. I am worthy. I have so much to give/contribute/share.”
Fear feels frantic. Fear feels confused. Fear feels like a shit ton of anxiety. (Do not judge yourself for you anxiety. Anxiety is simply an indicator of where your fear lies). Fear feels like collapsing/shrinking/playing small/holding back. Fear feels like you can’t do it/aren’t good enough/have no options. Fear says, “Who the eff am I to do that? I don’t have what it takes. What do I have to say/offer/give/contribute that is of value. What will they think of me?”
And love IS NOT letting people run over you/”doing what is best for everyone else”/or any other lame-ass, disempowering thought that may be floating through your mind that sounds like “love” but feels like fear. You feel me?
So, in the decision you have to make which option FEELS like love?
Now notice, that you knew this was the answer all along.
PS: The divine plans for you/your life are not so fragile that you can drop them and break them. Even if you make the “wrong” decision, before it’s all said and done, it will have become the right decision. The Universe is really good at turning it all around. Go for it.
I love you. GO BIG!

PPS: I personally substitute the word Love for God/Spirit and the word Fear for Devil/ego when studying religious texts. Overlooking semantics can be super helpful when studying spirituality, philosophy and religion. Ya feel me?
