Live Your Dream Podcast Episode 4: Make a New Friend of Your Fear. Then Rock On.

My Live Your Dream for Real podcast episode 4 is now live. And it’s one for all ages, on that most human of experiences: fear! Can you relate? Yes you can. Right?

Check it out here, as you live your dream. For real.

OK, let’s talk fear

I received a great question, actually two, that I’ll share with you exactly as they came to me:

Do you feel that the fear one experiences contributes to the attraction of negative energy? If so, do you have any tips for overcoming or avoiding that situation?

One thing about this particular set of questions is that it’s from the amazing dad of a very creative 10 year-old girl. So my goal in this episode is to address these questions in a way that works for kids, AND of course for the child in all of us.

No Catch 22 allowed here

First, on that great question about fear contributing to the attraction of negative energy, I think it’s important to avoid the extra layer of fear that a belief like this could create! Talk about a negative loop, or a Catch 22 for us grownups, right? The truth is, fear is part of the human journey. It’s part of who we are.

In a novel I read a few months ago an early main character, a little girl who later became an author, started very early telling scary stories to all the kids in her life. Two generations later, another main character, the little girl’s grown granddaughter, went poking around learning about her grandmother, the “authoress.”

She was trying to answer the question of who she came from. And the elders who were still in that long-ago neighborhood, the little girl’s friends of that time, still remembered the scary stories she told, and how much they all loved them! Without a doubt life is like that, right?
