    Two things can be said about this. First, you can seek out professional help and ease into deep trust, moving at your own speed and sensing -- not from the mind but from the heart -- if he or she is truly open enough to accept the darker energies you want to release.

    Having made a space for trusting yourself, now you need someone else to trust. Healing is not a matter of solitary work.

    Don't automatically put your best friend, spouse, or big sister at the top of your list. Be objective about who is emotionally available and who isn't. Look for someone who is tolerant...Read More

    Love is the next step after acceptance.

    Try this today. See someone without having any opinion at all -perhaps a child playing in the park or a diner sitting in a cafe, at a table for one. Tune in to the simple being that each of us shares. Isn't there love in appreciating a passing face, a gesture,...Read More

    Fear can be dispelled, even when it runs extremely deep, but fear must be respected until you find a way to release it.
