  • Communicate your needs, expectations and desires.

What is it that usually holds us back from living life to its fullest, and experiencing our authentic individuality? For most of us, it is fear that holds us back. Fear is the emotion that keeps us safe, protects us, and triggers us, to move out of harm’s way. This may have served our ancestors well in the past, but, we are no longer living in the wild, or faced with daily survival threats. I take that back, at times we are faced with daily survival in facing financial fears, and other real life threats to our existence.

But, to what degree are we allowing non-life threatening fears to take over our emotional and physical state of being? As in the game of chess, if we strategies, and stay calm, allowing ourselves time to think out the best outcome, we are more apt to choose the most effective behavior, decision, and action to fulfill our authentic purpose at that moment.

At the time of recognizing fear, analyze the fear, is it truly life threatening or is this a fear with genetic roots? Genetic roots of fear are fears that we experience at a cellular level, fears that have been passed from one biological generation to the next. Just as our DNA carries the code of eye color, hair color etc. so too does it carry emotions.

When we are ready to take control of our life, and live with intention, we are truly free to live our authentic life!


Everyone occasionally feels blue or sad. But these feelings are usually short-lived and pass within a couple of days. When you have depression, it interferes with daily life and causes pain for both you and those who care about you. Depression is a common but serious illness.Many people with a depressive illness never seek treatment. But the majority, even those with the most severe depression, can get better with treatment.
