Fear to Freedom

This is a short presentation I recently gave to a group of spiritual seekers. I share a bit of my story about growing up in Fundamentalist Mormonism, how the fear-based beliefs of my childhood affected me as an adult and my journey into finding my own truth.

Each one of us is on a journey of personal evolution in the progression of our own soul and each one of us has specific lessons we pre-determined we wanted to learn in our physical journey. Each one of us has our own unique path and each one of us has our own truth depending on where we are in our own soul’s progression. While there are Universal truths which exist at the core of all humanity, with or without religion, we also have our own individual truths that guide us in our physical journey and the journey of our soul.

In this understanding we can see that there is no “one right way to God” as many of our religions have misguided us to believe. These beliefs were created to keep us under control through the ambiguity of fear. Whether this was done consciously or not is irrelevant, because it is simply a part of our collective evolution. This belief that there is only one path set a course for humanity to be pitted in againstness, rather than oneness. These beliefs have been responsible for pitting cultures against each other and pitting men against women. They have been responsible for the belief that some of us are worth more than others and created the inability for us to recognize and embrace our own truth.

When we all learn to understand that there is more than one path, more than one right way, and more than one truth, and that we are all of equal worth and value, then we will finally have the global peace we all seek. When we override our fear based-beliefs with love, then we will feel the inner peace we all innately desire. When we learn to see every human being through the eyes of unconditional love, then we will have created the heaven on earth that we are ALL ultimately able to create, because it is the very essence of who we are. We need only work down through our limiting beliefs and become one with our own truth, which is always connected to that which many call God.

Three Magic Words

There was a time in my life that I had such disdain for religion that I could not see spirituality because of my association with it in the context of religion. The words faith, hope and trust were meaningless to me. They were words that were given lip service as a child but held no real value and slipped from my vocabulary as an adult. I associated them only with the God of men that I had been raised with. I wanted nothing to do with that God and the rules I had been taught He expected me to live by. The only faith and trust I had was in myself and eventually my husband.

It was not until I reconnected with myself a few years ago that my eyes began to open to a much greater awareness of the universe and the intelligent energy that I now see as Divine. As I explored my inner truth and recognize the source of inspiration I began to see the magic in the energies of faith, hope and trust. These are not just words uttered from memorized biblical quotes, but they are magic words. Those three seemingly valueless words are the energetic action between ask and receive. The energy created with those words open up the abundance of the universe and feed our intentions. They not limited to religion but align with the magic of creation, spirit and universal intelligence.
