Today’s post is PART II of a Series I’m writing for you about RESISTANCE or PARADIGMS… that backward/downward grab that appears to come out of nowhere whenever we take a few steps in our forward direction.
OUR FEAR OF FEAR Hi, and welcome back to our third part of the short series, “Battle Resistance.” We are looking at FEAR. Terrifying word, isn’t it? Read on, and let’s turn this around.

Yes, those thoughts that either encourage and empower us, or those paradigms from days gone by, that will lie, cheat, and steal to drag us back down to a cruel thought pattern, to vicious self talk.
Being a woman is such a magical experience, isn’t it? We have intuition and instincts that can shake this planet. We inspire response to our presence wherever we go. We are tenacious and beautiful and gifted with earth shattering talents and abilities.

Let's talk about overwhelm. I've had a few friends mention it this past week, as I myself was experiencing it as well. Somehow, it appears to come along with a distinct lack of focus because too many demanding voices are yelling at us simultaneously.
Talking about Fear! Again. I know. We've discussed it before, but the thing about Fear is, it keeps sneaking back in, doesn't it? And it manifests itself in all sorts of ways.
