Faith and Fear cannot exist in the same place. Are you afraid of your own success?

Would you rather stay in the place in your life you are in ? Would you rather unlock the possibilities?

  • I like unlocking possibilities. I have lived in several states. I have taken risks alot of people wouldnt, even some that made me homeless for a time. I have never been scared to do what I feel is right for ME. I have never stayed in a relationship because I was comfortable and scared to leave. I have raised my kids in the way I wanted, not how others think I should. So there ya go.

    Now though? I would still LOVE to be able to go do things like when I was younger. I am 40, a grandma, buying a house, and pretty settled. I feel like resting lol.

  • I am so happy I stepped outside of what I knew and worked on spiritual growth. I just started yesterday with Shamanics or rather Shamanism and I am feeling great. connecting with nature and understanding balance along with the fact we are all connected somehow and that the strength comes from within oneself has really opened my eyes.

  • I am not getting the question I have fear and rely on my faith but I don't put that with my success. I want to unlock possibilities and I know there are things I might be afraid of but that I have to have faith it will work out.

    LOL ... Calvinism doesn't promote the prosperity doctrine ... I think you need to brush up on your theology.
