What fears are holding you back? What weakness do they hide?

I have a fear.

To be seen as someone who is pushy, arrogant, and self-important.

The idea of others seeing me as such, tends to make me second guess myself. In the holistic world, there are still many people who see what we do as “woo-woo.” The last thing that I want by following my dreams and purpose is to be seen as a snake oil salesman…
A dishonour such as this can be crippling if made real, and even though it hasn’t happened, I still worry.

I know that there is a certain level of intimidation which accompanies alternative medicine. I understand and respect others opinions, yet it pains my heart to know that there are people out there who could reap so much fertility…if they only opened up their minds. This fear of mine, however does keep me practical, but at what expense? It is hiding a truer authenticity that begs to be shown.

Because, underneath the “woo-woo” is a person who can ” embody the power of transformation. With gifts of the shamanic and healing arts.” Because I am someone “whose vitality, pride, dignity, and accomplishments are powerfully attractive. I have a chance to slip between this world and the Otherworld, moving power and creativity back and forth between the two.” I will make things happen!

“I am at home in all the worlds of power and transformation.”- Joanna powell Colbert
