    1. That hawk is a juvenile Red Tail Hawk who has become my friend, Scott. I helped him understand not to cry for his Mamma when he was hunting, but to be quiet. It has been quite an experience. xo

  1. At some point, we must all face out fears. Letting our fears rule us; is living a life less fulfilling. It is through the facing of fears and conquering them that we learn how to live and find the strength that we need to conquer anything.

    1. You are absolutely correct, Andrew. Not all people face their fears, however. They keep pushing them down, excusing them, acting out, and it goes round and round. This journey is for those of us who are determined to be free of those fears deep within us. And believe me, it is hard work. Bless you for this comment. xo

  2. Great message Amy! I love the Runes, used to use them everyday. I, too, have been told I am attached to outcomes and need to let go. I’ve gotten better at it and have to watch myself. Witnessing my fear works, the more I catch it, the better. My mind is really great at throwing it in my face, but as long as I know it’s coming from my mind – I know it’s also bogus, just trying to get me to react. Navigating this life is always a challenge – better to be out in nature and talking with the hawks!!! Much love to you! Donna

    1. I say good for you, Donna! Catching these situations are essential to then stop the “engrained habits” to begin. How empowering it feels to be involved in a situation you know used to trigger you, but because of the work you have done, it no longer does, or if it does, not to the extent it used to. The mind is a slippery slope! I agree about being out in Nature. There are times when I am there that solutions come to the nagging question … but WHY? I’m so happy for you that you know this Path, to which comes to no surprise to me. You are a true Spiritual Warrior, my friend!! Much Love to you!! xo

  4. Beautiful post and amazing beautiful photos, dear Amy 🙂
    It demands much courage to view the fear from an angle, where we also are able to kick it out of our lives.
    I have been fighting that fear for many years, you know partly of it, and sometimes it is more easy than other times, just to view the fear in the eyes and then kick it away with love, which for me is the only way to get rid of it.
    To forgive has been a huge part of releasing the fear, not for the abusers, but for me to go on with life, so I don’t let others power into my life again.
    Much love to you dear friend, you have overcome so much to stay, where you are today ❤

    1. Irene, to be on this Path of Healing as you well know is so so difficult. Yes it is easier some days then others and when that trigger happens [again] that is a signal there is more work to be done. It hurts darn it when others demean you, or ridicule you, or are nasty and mean. Yet when we are walking empowered we see it as that person’s own anger, own insecurities rising to surface projected onto us, where they do NOT belong. When we get a good handle on this and learn how to disconnect from this dysfunctional energy, we fly. When we are tired or not feeling well and we are triggered, those are the times, at least for me, it is SO hard not to take the hurt personally. And yes, forgiveness is a huge part of this process, something I did not go into. Thank you for that share and I hope those that read the comments, will see yours and take into consideration how important forgiveness is of others and of self in this process.
      Thank you regarding my images. I purposely set out yesterday to a park with my camera with the sole intention of getting pictures for this post, which I had written. And lo and behold, I found them. Awesome! Much Love to you, dear friend. Keep up the great work you are doing in setting yourself free. I am so very proud of you!! (((HUGS)))!!! xo

  5. Oh AmyRose, this is the first post of yours that I didn’t notice one picture. I saw my name, tears flowed and I read and re-read your words. I am humbled, honored, appreciative, thankful and I am going to start a daily journal and continue to work on freeing myself from past trauma. There are so many, and my brain only wants to focus on what it thinks it can handle.
    Thank you, again and again for this post. I am forever grateful.

    1. I really hope, Wendi, that in some way I was able to combine my perspective with yours in order for you to assist to heal you. It is not possible to address ALL the fears we have …. ask which one is appropriate for you to work on and it will be shown to you. This is hard work. And then treat yourself to fun and what you LOVE to do in order to allow what you learned to sink in and to have a break from the intense work you have done as well.

  6. Insight over insight here. Yes, I experienced the same. Once I looked fear in the face, it dissolved. I looked at it and asked what there actually is to fear about and the answer was: nothing. Fear is a construct we build around us. Often to protect us and/or our comfort zone. But as you said, we are fighting ourselves when we create such a construct.
    And of course, fantastic photos again. Those whops are stunning! Amy, what a post again!!

    1. Sometimes fear really does just disappear, but others for some reason seem to need the onion effect, where layer by layer only is seen. Fear is slippery. It’s like giving a medication to suppress the symptoms, only for those symptoms to appear later on in another form. Many of my fears were created by others in my childhood …. not by me. Yes some of my fears I created but if I take a closer look, those fears are built on existing fears that again others created in me. When we stop fighting, stop making excuses, stop denying, stop avoiding, that is when we can really make some incredible breakthroughs. Thank you so much for both reading this very important post to me and for commenting. Bless you, Erika! xo

      1. I hear you, Amy. So many fears were planted by others and we fostered them for decades although those who caused them often don’t have any power over us anymore. It sits so deep that we can only get rid of it piece by piece without knowing how much is still left. But we find out when the next similar situation comes up. At least we know, that in the end, they are not a truth but a distorted imagination which was caused by and can be changed by thoughts… By our thoughts. Nobody said it was easy but it is possible. And every little piece we dropped is a success for our true self to shine a bit brighter💖

      2. In my experience there is more to it then changing our thoughts, Erika. That’s part of it yes. That has to be followed by different reactions or actions then what we have been used to doing. In seeing past the illusion when another strikes out towards us, we see their pain, their insecurities, their own anger and fear. And when we do see this, we nip our “old” behavior in the bud by remaining neutral and standing in LOVE. That way that hurled pain has nowhere to go and you walk away free from someone else’s “drama”. This is a very complex subject, one that continues in my life as piece by piece I uncover another root in order to not only dig up, but plant a beautiful flower instead of the weed. xo

      3. Exactly, it needs a change in our point of view, a change of actions and reactions. And this all comes from a changed mind set. A single thought thought differently is the beginning of a huge change because we automatically begin to look differently at what we are familiar with and it looks differently that way. Yes, simply watching without judging makes detatch from identifying with the fear or the object of fear. And a big YES again on exchanging the weed with flower. When I began to consciously watch my thoughts I only realized how destructive they were and in the consequence I began to exchange them with the positive counterpart. It needed (and still does) a lot of practice but after only a few days I noticed how I automatically exchanged thoughts and another few days later the changed mindset became an as normal as the negative one was.

      4. Absolutely beautifully written, Erika. I found myself with some very angry thoughts this morning regarding something and when I read your words, I stopped. Wait a minute. Yes I have every right to be angry but …. I will NOT allow what someone else did or in this case did not do, to upset me any further. Yes YES let us plant flowers instead of the weeds. I’m aware of this anger in me and I know WHY … the root cause …. and so the process begins again …. As for the rest of this day, I smile, I go to the gym and enjoy myself, and from there come home to begin my Fall closing of my gardens, all with lightness in my heart. I just LOVED your thoughts ….. bless you for going back and forth with me … this conversation I truly truly enjoyed with you! Thank you!!! xoxoxo

      5. I got watery eyes reading your words, Amy. It reminded me of a saying I heard a while back: “Being angry means, paying for other people’s mistakes.” Isn’t it so true? Knowing the root is such a relief. What a feeling to take it and root it out! WOW!
        Amy, I read myself in your posts and that’s why you are inspiring me so much every time. Sometimes I think we really are kindred spirits. When even we made different experiences, the feelings we stored from them seem so similar. We may never completely get it done but we know we are not the only ones and that’s already healing too. So, thank you so much, dear Amy 💖

      6. I really really like that saying! I’m going to remember that! I more then fought back today …. and I got the attention of the owner where this person works who I was very angry with. The problem will be addressed properly. And yes knowing the root and then acting on it in a mature manner brings a sense of retribution (rightfully so) and empowerment. And as for you seeing yourself in my posts, I feel the same about yours. Yes we are kindred spirits and it feels wonderful to connect with you. So many times I’m not understood in a world that is shallow and lacking in true heart connection. Yet the more I insist on living in this true heart connection, the more I meet others who know how to live in this manner as well. As for getting done … well, I’m just really proud of how far I’ve come thus far so no pressure from me to attain “more”. What is, is. Knowing me, however, I will work on these deep roots for the rest of my life. Thank YOU for your honesty, your sharing, and your Light that touches me each time will interact. Bless you, dear friend. Our choices can make for a “lonely” existence at times and to know there are others in this world who mirror us, brings great gratification. (((HUGS)))!!! xo

      7. The reasonable way would be to “sleep over it a night” and not react right away in order to find a little distance and react in a proper way… BUT… this is someting which is really hard. I am not a very patient person and tend to dig deeper and deeper twisting and turning my thoughts. So, when I let it sink it keeps me from sleeping and causes a big stone in my stomach, makes me nervous, restless, and very angry. A BIG lesson to learn! Sorry, that I digressed here.
        I can totally relate to not feeling understood. I too felt (and still feel at times) like an alien. But as you said, once started to live my alien spirit I found more of my alien family… Hi, Amy… haha!
        What we both learned and I think that is the most important spark that’s constantly blinking: We won’t stop following that path of rediscovering ourselves. We know that whatever obstacle may show up only brings us closer to who we are and we won’t back out anymore! Not anymore. Btw. that is the title of one of my songs and it it is exactly about that.
        So, cheers to us 👽🥂👽

      8. If something is bothering me I usually listen to my guidance then act. I won’t allow festering …. that causes ulcers. I understood your digression …. been there. As for the alien family …. Hi, Erika! SMILE! Yes cheers to us! And if others don’t get us, that is their loss. Right? WP has been my greatest outlet to show the “world” who I really am. And to be accepted, not to be afraid anymore to post what I do, is a Gift. I used to jump into bed wayyyyyyy back 7 years ago when I first started blogging after I posted something, actually pulling the covers over my head in fear. I was so afraid to be seen for the real person I am. That is so far from the truth today it aint funny! I am who I am and I am darn proud of it. Hubby tells me I am the most sincere and honest person he knows. I don’t seem to be able to be anything but real and there have been times I say things that I know make others squirm. Um, I don’t play games, yet I have learned diplomacy IF I remember to be so. LOL
        OK!!! I’ve been on here long enough. Time for me to start wrapping up this day. It takes hours to do what I have to do in the evenings so I’m off. What a beautiful beautiful conversation we have had!! Thank you!! xo (((HUGS)))!!!

I’ve grown into someone I didn’t even know I was capable of growing into. And I am sure not finished by a long shot yet! When I am tired or scared or stressed or overwhelmed, yes it still is easy for me to get triggered. But overall, I do my best to be alert as to what is going on behind the “illusion”. Thank you for reading this post and thank you for your support which means so much to me. I have set myself free yet still I shall soar even higher, just like my friend, the juvenile Red Tail Hawk. I helped this guy when he first came out of the nest. He cried for Mama to feed him and his cries were breaking my heart. So I stood where he could see me and a “glow” began around him and me when we connected. Mind to mind I told him shhhhhh …. you have to be quiet to hunt or else you will go hungry. I stood there a long time with this glow happening between us until I felt confident he would hunt. And hunt he did. In that last picture he was flying with his family wayyyyyy up high but he came in lower closer to me to say hi! Amazing!! Much Love to you!! xo

  11. Parents have a lot to answer for. Nothing I ever did seemed to be enough for my Mum and Dad. I do suspect though, that this may be a repeated pattern in that nothing my Dad or Mum did was enough for their parents.
    I have tried to break the pattern with my own daughter by never being negative with her and giving her lots of hugs and lots of praise. Thank goodness, it has worked, and she is very rarely scared unless there is good reason to be.

  12. What a powerful resonant post! I was away from the blog space for quite sometime and as if returned here to find that you have stumbled upon my life story and shared it here. During my time away just now – that’s what I found – my original fear that I have always lived with and I spent time looking at it and understanding it and allowing healing to come. It became evident with clarity how it had literally been eating away at my mind, body, heart and existence – it has made me so gravely ill at times. I feel like I am on the other side of it now, the most than ever before if not completely. I am aware of how it works! I am now enjoying a space – no words, no requirements, no neediness, no projection of outcomes – trusting the divine will channel what needs to flow through. So precious Amy all that you have shared – I wish I find my ability to share my journey as clearly as you do.

    1. I’ve read your comment a few times, Prag. Welcome back by the way. You’ve been missed! This post was far from easy to write for I wanted it to flow with congruency. This subject is so vast and with such depth, that I know books have been written on the subject. I took my personal experience and with deep contemplation, began to write. I wasn’t even going to publish this until Wendi requested it. I edited it many many times and when finally satisfied, went out to a local park with the sole intention of finding images that match my words here. Voila. Magic again happened!
      I have a few original fears, yet they are all tied to one source. It would appear that as I see an aspect of these fears I change my actions and thoughts. And then when it is time again, I again am plunged deeply in order to find another layer, another aspect, of these fears. Tough work as you well know. Only the brave are able to do this work for it is life-changing! I am SO happy for you that you are in this space that trust reigns in order for the Divine to flow through.

      1. Indeed there’s layers and layers, tough work it is. I wonder if all I am going to be doing in this lifetime is keep scraping this down into the bottomless pit. Is healing ever done? Or perhaps it is not for me to decide. The choices come to me and it is what it is. I am truly grateful for your reminder to me that I Am doing some actual work, that I Am brave. It is so easy for me to often feel small compared to the robust human pursuits and accomplishments around me – they are all so valid – I forget to find the same worth in my pursuit as a seeker, I don’t seem to celebrate where I am. Yet I do cherish and indulge in the joyful spaces of nothingness that I often land in.
        I miss being here too. I have posts in mind always but just don’t want to go through the work of writing, polishing and finding any pictures for them – as of now – it will come when it will come. I am thrilled to be with your magic, you truly are bringing it alive for so many of of us. Much Love Much Love Much Love ❣️

But they are very real to the person who is suffering. Yes it takes a lot to break the patterns. The first step to healing is to realize those fears are NOT real. Yet when you are deep in an OCD state, they are. How do you pull yourself out? That is a tough one. My husband reads my blog so it would be very tricky for me to honestly write my experience about those very subjects you mentioned. I will have to really listen closely to my guidance on this.

      3. Thank you for the reply, Amy. I empathize with anyone who has OCD. I understand that soldiers would face it, as they experience first-hand violence. But, civilians do suffer from it too.. Even a violent TV scene keeps playing over and over again in your mind, making life difficult. I have gone to sleep many nights wishing that I don’t want to wake up and experience these thoughts again. And it is even more difficult when your psychiatrist has no clue what you are talking about. Apart from medication, distraction really helps. Being with people helps too, whether you are an introvert or an extrovert.

      4. I know my share of OCD, anxiety, and PTSD all formed from out of my childhood. I still to this day can be triggered. I’m learning and have for a LONG time to focus on that which brings me JOY and peace. There was a period of my life I tried counseling and psychiatry but like you, no one seemed to GET ME. I walked away from the drugs and the chair and began my own journey with my camera lots of years ago. I learned how to face my own fears that were birthed not of my own making but from others. It is also very important for me to be around those who lift me up, not tear me down. I am very sensitive to energy so I can “feel” if someone is heavy with negativity or not. I learned how to free myself from the chains created out of a nightmare of a childhood. And I’m still learning to this day! Exercise is a tremendous plus ….. and I do that consistently. Good nutrition, staying away from alcohol (a depressant), no drugs, living a clean and simple life doing what I love to do ….. all contribute to my state of mind today. Do I ever slide back? Yes. Do I get triggered? Yes. Yet I’ve learned if I stay down too long, I’m in big trouble. The more I am UP and happy, (and only YOU can learn how) the more that pattern overrides the downsville I was taught as a child.
        I hope I’ve helped. I will really think about writing a post about these fears. That would be a really challenging post for me to write …. but if my heart directs me to do so, I shall. No promises, OK? BIG (((HUGS)))!!! xoxo

  14. Dearest Amy, you my dear are a true Warrior Spirit, who has had to navigate her way through her own journey by trial and error.. We who have found our ‘inner child’ that who was so wounded and afraid, have learnt to nurture her back into health from learning all about the fear we carry.

    You also know my own back story, and we learn to be strong, and determined never again to be dragged back into the Mire of despair, that lonely pit of emotion from which we have learned to climb out of.

    Your words inspire, and encourage all who read to see just how much damage we do to ourselves.. Thought Creates!..
    And our bodies are vibration, what we hold onto especially those negative frequencies of fear do so much harm, as you say making us ill, keeping us at dis-ease with ourselves and keeping us trapped within these lower frequencies..

    Its time to rise…. Raise our vibration, learn love, of self.. and forgiveness of self, others and let go of those inner wounds, scars, we have often re-picked open to bleed anew..

    Its wonderful to know Amy you ‘See’ and ‘Share’ and ‘Teach’..
    Because you my friend are a Rainbow Warrior of Light..

    Much love my friend.. From one Heart to another who deeply appreciates her journey into the light of love.. ❤ ❤ ❤

    1. When I read this comment, and then read it again, I had tears in my eyes, as I do now. My heart is just so tied up in knots right now over all you did say. When I look back, Sue, into the horror of what my childhood was, and then look to present day, the journey I have been on, the growth I have gained, the wisdom hard-won, and the determination to never ever ever allow another human being to degrade me again, ….. well, what can I say but the very difficult Path has been so very worth it. I see most of my family, who I deliberately stay away from, who are reenacting the very horrors they learned as children. Will they ever rise above the lies and the fears and the anger and the violence? I honestly couldn’t tell you. I only have myself to be accountable for. I “knew” growing up what I was exposed to was so wrong and right there and then I intentioned to change. It was a very poor start, let me tell you. It took a NDE for me to be really shook up and SEE I had to begin by forgiving those who I was holding anger against. The rest is history. I’ve had one trial after the other, more heartache and pain then most, but through it all, I’ve grown tremendously. To continue the Road I have been on, I invited all those who read this post to join me. You and I both know that not all who did read this, will. To share and to teach are two huge responsibilities which The Universe makes sure I am accountable in all areas of my life for. You know this as well as I do.
      In order for you to see in me a Rainbow Warrior, that means so thou art as well. Bless YOU for all the hard work you have done, the struggles you have survived in the battles between self and Self. Both of us are journeying into the Light of Love and due to our past and all that comprises, I can tell you this. We both are so very grateful and cherish all that we have been given, all the Gifts we now are truly ready to hold.
      All my Love to you, dearest Sue. I am so proud of you. The growth I have witnessed in you has been amazing. Just going to your blog now brings such a Higher State of Being to those who go. Bless you for the “messages” you courageously are now bringing to us. BIG HUGS!!!! xoxoxo

    1. If you had told me years ago I would be doing what I am today, Sue, I would NOT have believed you. There are times I am stunned by all that is transpiring through me. My camera is my Life Line, dear friend. The words that pour through me are not only for me but for all. I’m humbled that my life and my experiences and my wisdom are able to assist others to help themselves. I’m so glad I posted this as well. Wendi really wanted me to do so, and I promised. I was taken aback by how well received this post was. I’ve even had requests to write about fears connected to OCD and anxiety disorders. Whew! If it’s to be it will BE. I do not force anything ….. all here was created in the Moment. Much LOVE to you, dear sister of Light. xoxoxo

  16. Wow. That’s such an inspiring post. I really needed to hear this today. I’m in a bit of a situation myself. Fear does bring about so many consequences and most of the time, we’re oblivious to it. The day we identify our fears and pledge to get rid of it, our lives will change forever. So beautifully described. I’m so proud of you, my dear, for facing your fears. Keep fighting, my warrior. Glory shall be yours. ♥️

    1. Aw, friend. Your encouragement really touched me deeply! Thank you! Getting to the root of those fears is so not easy but in order for real change to come about, very necessary to do. I really hope my experiences can assist you to help yourself in a “new” way perhaps, or just make stronger your motivation to bring fear to Love. Bless you for everything you have said. BIG (((HUGS)))!!! xoxoxo
