Affirmation by Angela Alcantar:
Each time I face my fears, I realize how powerful I am. I choose Love.
Additional Thoughts by Angela Alcantar:
I know at times it can be “easier said than done.” However, if you want things in life to change, you have to face your fears and change the way you do things. Ernest Holmes says, “Change your thinking, change your life.” And Einstein is quoted as saying that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome. A practitioner is the perfect person to have pray for you when you are feeling stuck or if you are experiencing fear.
Facing our fears takes practice… I have found that when I am able to bring love to my fear, my fear dissipates and I am able to see where love was lacking in a situation. For me, many of my fears generate from lack of self-love or lack of self-worth. When I remember I am love; when I remember to love myself; my fears melt away.
