It’s your turn to shine

But I am afraid

I am not defined by your opinion of me. And I shall not be contained by your limits or beliefs.
Joey Kasz

I am afraid.

I am afraid I will fail.

I am afraid when I show up I will be on stage and no one will bother listening to me. Or even worse the room will be empty. Speaking to the crickets. And they too shall leave me.

I am afraid.

I am afraid I will succeed.

For as I succeed I then become a source of knowledge. Of advice. Of validation. And I then am responsible for the people who follow me.

I am afraid.

I am afraid of regret. Arriving at the end of my life and seeing all I have omitted to accomplish because of this fear.

So I stare at the fear. I acknowledge it’s existence. I even befriend it. It is so alone. Tiny. Powerless really. And here I am. Next to it. Inviting it in. Reassuring the fear all will be okay. We’ll get through this together. It doesn’t have to be perfect. It doesn’t have to be a master piece. Done is better than perfect. Shipping is better than perfecting. The perfection comes after. For now I am more focused on accomplishing. Doing. Putting it out there.

I have a voice to speak. I shall scream if I have to. Even though I know people listen more when you whisper. For as I whisper and talk slowly they lean in. Focusing all their attention on my words. Blocking out all the distractions for fear of missing a word. A meaning. A tip or trick. We are all in this together. And what I want most is to share all I can which has helped me get through the difficult times. The obstacles. The hesitations.

My fear dissipates as I befriend it. I am no longer afraid. For I remember why I have started. For love.

I love you.

I love the idea of you.

I love the mirror you offer me and thank you for the opportunity to help you, help me, help you.

I love and as I love the fear dissipates.

Fear and love cannot coexist in the same space at the same time.

Love IS the answer.

Love yourself so fiercely all adversity recoils in fear. They are the fearful ones now. They run. They hide. They have nowhere to go now. And you see it in their eyes. And you love them also. Through the love you have for yourself you love them. The mirror. And they see their greatness through your fierce love.

They see their potential through your actions.

They see the possibles across space-time. The quantum world shows us all is possible. Every decision not made creates a dimension in which you have made that one decision. And you exist there as you exist here. And you can access that ‘you’. You can access that dimension. You can access that reality into yours. Here. Now.

Close your eyes.

Breathe in deeply.

Exhale completely.

Remember when everything was possible. You are younger. Freer. More alive than you ever have been since. The sun is shining. The wind is dancing. The world exists solely to breathe life, love and inspiration (in spirit action) into you. Effectively expanding your love. Your imagination. Your Consciousness. And the world thrives for it.

Run freely in the meadows. Frolic in the waters. Dance with the birds and howl with the wolves. You are a child of this Earth. It has birthed you for an awesome purpose. And that purpose is simply to ask you to share your uniqueness. Your specificity. We need it in order to continue. It is essential to the plan.

I need you.

I need you as you need me.

We are one. And as I grow I help you. My higher vibration helps you climb.

Now it’s your turn. Help me reach the next level.

It’s your turn to shine

To love is to learn. To learn is to grow. To grow is to fulfill yourself and your purpose.
