What do you do when you’re looking for answers to your issues? You “google it” or turn to someone who you “think” has the answers. There are so many wonderful teachers and gurus out there, but the truth is, there is no better guidance than that which comes from within. I’ve created a list of tips on how to be your own guru. That way, when you need guidance and no one is there, you can look yourself in the mirror and say, I got you!
I came across a video where Tara Sophia Mohr was speaking about her favorite teaching about fear.
In the video Tara explains that she learned that there are two different types of fear.
Pachad (the fear of projected or imagined things) – this type fear is where we see threats and dangers that are not really there and Yirah (the fear-like feeling we feel when we are touching the sacred) – this type of fear is the fear we feel when we are inhabiting a larger space that we are use to.
It took me by surprise to hear the new “Yirah” definition of fear. I had never thought about fear in that way, although I had experienced it before, and still do.
I felt it when writing my book Journey Through Sattara. I kept feeling like the book was bigger than me, and like it came from a huge source because it just flowed through me.
I felt it when I started my blog and started putting my feelings, experiences, and heart out on the line. The small in me wanted me to just be quiet.
I still feel it sometimes when I offer my time and services by translating the energy of my spirit guides Ray.
The part of me that is use to being quiet, stepping on eggshells, and asking for permission, cannot fathom such an open and free form of expression. I’ve experienced both types of fears, but the “Yirah” form of fear is the one I seem to be encountering the most on my journey as an intuitive guide.
I am being asked in this intuitive work to lay my rational mind to the side, to believe in miracles and synchronicity, to trust my gut, and not the statistics. It’s not easy considering that we are brought up to use history and numbers as fact and not our natural drives and instincts.
The divine in us wants us to loosen up, allow more, feel more, experience more, and that’s a lot to take in for our more reserved, structured-based personalities.
Have you recognized this type of new fear (Yirah) in your life as you’ve moved towards your dreams or towards new life experiences?
If so, tell us about it in the comments section.
It takes some practice to get use to the divine within you, but it’s possible. Everyday you just have to remind yourself that you are here to show your divine nature. It’s welcomed and encouraged, and you don’t have to rush it.
Just relax into your new sense of freedom and love, and after a while the sense of Yirah will begin to fade away.

For the past couple of days, something has felt off inside of me.
I have been so emotional.
The tears that I have cried over the past couple of days have been tears of sadness, accompanied with thoughts like: Who am I? Why am I here? What was I really made for? And why is the current way I am expressing myself, causing me to feel tension inside?
Yesterday night, after I settled down from the tears, I received a vision.
I was in the ocean surfing some beautiful waves. My logical mind wanted to disrupt the vision because riding big waves is impossible for me. For one, I am terrified of being in the middle of the ocean and for two, I can’t swim.
I trusted the vision however, and sat with the energy for a few minutes after it was done. I felt great after the vision and thought, wow that was wonderful – now only if I could do that in real life.
I got up this morning with the intention of just taking it easy. I was going to just let the day flow and just take whatever came my way. I didn’t want to get too much in the mind or pay too much attention to anything today. I just kind of wanted it to be an easy day.
Throughout the day, as I was on some social media sites I felt very emotional again, but this time I wasn’t crying tears of sadness. They were tears of joy, and they seemed to come forward for the littlest things.
Several quotes made me cry this morning.
Several pictures that I looked at made me cry.
Just seeing people in their natural states of being made me cry.
It was very weird to say the least, but I trusted that the New tears were a part of the process.
Out of nowhere I was drawn to this video where Kate Northrup (author and truth seeker) was interviewing Meggan Watterson (author and self proclaimed spiritual misfit) on Glimpse TV.
Meggan said something so profound, and it summed up the feelings that I have been feeling during this spiritual journey.
On my spiritual journey I have felt this feeling inside that I could not define until I heard Meggan say, how do I get this ocean outside of me?
The lightbulb went off, and I said, yes that’s it!
That is what I was feeling.
That is the tension inside that I didn’t know how to express, and she had summed it up perfectly.
It’s so true. You start out on this road knowing there is so much inside, but for some reason it seems too powerful to express.
Perhaps you were told to keep quiet in the past, or maybe your sensitivity, power, and presence were not appreciated throughout your life, or maybe you hold back out of fear that if you open your heart again, someone will take your best work (your heart, your love, and your sentiments), and stomp on them.
You’ve been heartbroken in the past, and you don’t trust opening your heart again or sharing yourself freely with others. I found a quote this morning that helps remedy those feelings.
Let your heart crumble into an infinite amount of tiny, precious seeds. Then plant love everywhere you go. View On Instagram
All of the above are reasons why I haven’t allowed the ocean of love, knowledge, and compassion to flow forth from me freely. The uneasiness that I feel is that ocean inside saying, it’s time to let go, it’s time to trust, it’s time to link with your real flow, but I keep denying its powerful presence into my life.
So the vision of the waves that I received from this morning showed me that I was getting ready to finally link with information that could help me move forward in a powerful way.
It is a beautiful feeling to see that your soul and your intuition are guiding you to the information that you need to hear.
So I am on a quest now to find out – how do I get this ocean outside of me?
I have done a pretty good job by releasing some of my heart and soul into different areas (my books, my Writing Heart on Tumblr, my Instagram site, my Pinterest boards, my Soul Guidance site, etc), but I feel there is something more – something bigger, that is trying to be expressed – something profound.
I can feel it trying to break through, but I still have these walls up, and it’s having a difficult time getting in.
I realized today that now is the time to surrender to the wave, to the flow, to life, and to trust that what is coming is beautiful and will reconcile these mixed feelings and heal alot of hearts.
It’s time to surrender and really openheartedly trust the flow of life without fear, without apprehension, and without apologies.

A few years back, I went to a park near my house to clear my head. I had my blanket stretched out across the grass, and had brought along a book to read and some soothing music to listen to. I was lying down with my nose in the book when I felt this weird presence behind me.
There was a path right next to the patch of grass that I was lying in, and two people were strolling down the path.
When I turned around to look in their direction, I just felt something very eerie. The gentlemen and the female that was with him didn’t look like they were from around my neighborhood. I had been to that park many times, and had seen many different people, and something about them just didn’t sit right with me.
I calmed myself down and continued to read my book, as they walked past me.
The guy turned around and gave me a cold stare that sent chills down my spine, and then he looked around to see who else was in the park.
At that point, I got very nervous, and something told me that the couple didn’t mean any good. I looked around to see how far my car was parked and to estimate if I could get away, if they came back or tried something.
I saw the couple stop not too far away from where I was, and they kept looking over at me, and then around the park again to see who else was around.
A group of people that were playing basketball was the last group there, and the two waited at the end of the path until the group of people got into their cars and were about to drive off.
My anxiety at that point went into overdrive, and I started to panic. I could get up at that moment and try to make it to my car or I could stick around to see what the two suspicious acting people were up to.
I looked at the car again as the couple kept looking in my direction and waiting for all of the cars to leave the parking lot. I could tell that as soon as the people left, they were planning on doing something – I just didn’t know what. I had my purse with me, my laptop computer, and an expensive phone. Who knows what they were going to do.
I felt a calm come over me as several dozen birds flew to the trees next to me. I can’t explain it, I just felt calmer. I thought one last time about running to my car, but I heard a calm voice say to me, be still.
I don’t know what made me trust the voice, but I did – even though I was terrified.
After the last car pulled out of the parking lot, I heard the sound of a motorcycle nearby.
Would you believe that my hubby had gotten off of work early, and when he noticed I wasn’t home, he went to the spot that he believed I would be?
When I saw his motorcycle pull into that parking lot, I swear to you I felt like the heavens opened up and like angels started singing. I felt completely safe and protected. I knew that my husband wasn’t going to let anything happen to me. I always feel safe around him, and all of my anxiety and tension eased right up.
I smiled from ear to ear as I saw my knight in motorcycle armor walk across the grass towards me.
When he got to me, he said, what’s wrong with a smile on his face, and then looked in the direction of the two people that were standing their staring in my direction.
I said, nothing, you’re right on time, and then told him about the behavior of the two people.
After they saw us interacting, the two people walked away. You would too if you saw how big he is. He is kind of big in stature, but my hubby’s presence is big too, and he has the heart and strength to match it. So I wasn’t worried at all after he showed up.
I could not believe the timing of it. I felt so watched over, protected, and guided, and it was an experience that I will never forget.
I share this story because I have been feeling a little disconnected lately. I forgot how good it feels to recall all the times when I did feel aligned and connected. It works wonders for getting the energy and focus moving in a different direction.
If you feel stuck, try it. Try to recall the moments when you did feel aligned and connected. Once you start to change your thoughts, you’ll start to recall more and more moments, and it will change your mood completely.
