Love is letting go of fear. When you tackle your fears, you’ll emerge on the other side, having achieved peace and a sense of security.
Are you afraid of success, failure, sickness, death, divorce, socializing, intimacy, crowds, heights, small spaces, silence, communicating?
Uncover whence the fear came and be rid of it once and for all. Don’t let your worries keep you frozen in limbo, unable to evolve and develop into the man/woman you’re intended to be.
Halloween/Harvest is a magical season ideal for transformation and growth. Leaves are falling and turning magnificent colors right outside my front door (yes here in sunny Studio City).
Follow suit by celebrating the courage to change and the strength to carry out the process. Now is an excellent time to witness your world in Technicolor, rather than black and white. You’re the director of the next chapter in your novel of life.
Confronting your fears in incremental steps will prevent you from becoming overwhelmed. If you're apprehensive being alone, try spending short moments in your own company, gradually increasing the stretches as you gain comfort.
When you’re at ease enjoying your companionship, others will jump on the band wagon. You’ll end up attracting friends and lovers who fancy hanging out with you.
By adjusting your perspective, coping with anxieties can be a stimulating. The journey involves locating the light within you, past the dark side, where you may previously have perceived monsters lurking. You’ll experience true joy and bliss.
All the brightness, serenity, and understanding you yearn for lies on the other side of the tunnel. There your essence glows and shines beyond your wildest imagination.
Begin by forgiving yourself for treating yourself badly. Then forgive others for their behavior. You both did the best you could with the information and knowledge you had, considering your history/herstory.
Whatever you hold on to or obsess about possesses you. It’s a prerequisite to acknowledge your “toxic” emotions, e.g. jealousy, envy, anger, rage, wrath, irritability, pride, so they don’t consume or have power over you. After releasing them you’re free to move forward.
If you’re angry with an ‘ex,’ remember the axiom that the optimum revenge is inner happiness. Perhaps that’s sufficient motivation to initiate a brand new outlook.
Having done so, you’re capable of dispelling the black holes that imprisoned you. Negative thoughts and feelings may have hindered you from accessing the sunlight of the spirit. However, they no longer serve a purpose.
Navigating your way out of doom and gloom into radiance, contentment, and fulfillment entails mindfulness and deliberate intention. It’s now safe for you to meet the abyss you’ve been avoiding. Soar head-on. You will survive.
You deserve to live the rest of your existence in ecstasy rejoicing in your positive attributes, accepting your limitations for their uniqueness. There’s only one of you in the entire universe making you a special, valuable, and worthy individual.
Seek support during this ‘demon demolition period’ through a trusted friend, family member, spiritual advisor, religious counselor, competent therapist. Useful tools include journaling, meditating, progressive relaxation, creative visualization, any practice that focuses, calms, energizes, and invigorates.
Are you afraid of rejection? Don’t let that stop you from pursuing a “keeper,” even if you feel shunned. The biggest faux pas is giving up on a prospective mate because you abhor being turned down. Offer your soft vulnerable side and the object of your desire will fall head over heels.
It’s okay to act as the brave, gallant, white knight who sweeps her off her feet. Women are desperate for old fashioned heroes to swoon over.
Both sexes yearn for someone they can count on to stay committed through thick and thin, who won’t run to the hills when the going gets tough.
No matter what prior path you've travelled, your present is perfectly planned, while good kismet awaits you in the future. Anything you dream or fantasize can be your reality.
Many Halloween superstitions and rituals that are obsolete today, centered on romantic predictions. In 18th century Ireland, a matchmaking cook might bury a ring in mashed potatoes on Halloween night hoping the diner who discovered it would find their soul mate.
In Scotland, fortune tellers suggested naming a hazelnut for each possible love connection and then tossing them into the fireplace. The nut burning the longest represented your forthcoming spouse.
Others stood in front of mirrors in darkened rooms, holding candles and looking over their shoulders for the apparition of their potential partner.
At some Halloween parties, the first successful apple bobber was deemed the first to be married. Currently, believers may resort to palm/tea leaf readings or Astrological/Tarot card soothsayers.
Singles slogan for today: To begin the journey of rejuvenation, don the boots of dedication and devotion. By visualizing change, you summon it to yourself.
