image“In this book, you will learn that what keeps you stuck and feeling weak and hopeless is nothing more than an illusion of the past, nothing more than the fears (real or imagined) that ruminate in your subconscious.

You will understand that everything you’ve come up against is there not to disempower you but to give you an opportunity to be stronger, more courageous, and more in alignment with your higher or true self. You will see that the obstacles you’ve endured actually give you opportunities to overcome them and to evolve.

You will see that when you look at your life, what once appeared to be fear, pain, and hopelessness will become hope, courage, and love. As you become a courageous warrior, you will find yourself standing up straighter. You will feel the confidence to move forward powerfully. You will no longer look at yourself as a flawed, imperfect woman but will instead see yourself as you truly are—a woman with boundless confidence and courage.

With that, a new self-image emerges in which you feel so good about who you are and what you are that you have the power to accomplish anything. You are a foot soldier for truth—and it starts with your own truth: listening to your own impulses, your own wisdom, and the voice of your highest self.

You are the keeper of your highest aspirations and the seeker of the divine design of your own sacred life. And in this alignment, you transcend your old self-image and step into courage, strength, and confidence.

The discovery of being a warrior will shift the very being that you are right now and give you the power and strength to take on any challenge, any day of the week. Even in the midst of your daily life, instead of cleverly camouflaging your insecurity with a business suit or sweats, you can adorn yourself with the shimmering gown of self-confidence and the radiant crown of courage that you so deeply deserve.
So in the name of love, courage, and confidence, let’s charge ahead!”

Excerpt From: Debbie Ford & Wayne W. Dyer. “Courage.”

image“When you are a warrior for your past, you find the gifts in difficult experiences. You know that these challenges have been opportunities for you to overcome.

You know that in letting go of them, you have achieved a great goal. With each challenge, you rise to a new height.

You are prepared to combat the agonizing voices in your head that tell you it shouldn’t have happened or that you must be stupid or that there is something wrong with you.

You ask, “What voice am I listening to? Am I listening to the Voice of Fear, the Voice of Powerlessness, the Voice of Hopelessness, the Voice of Helplessness, the Voice of Insecurity?

Or am I listening to the Voice of Acceptance, the Voice of Power, the Voice of Confidence, the Voice of Courage, the Voice of Strength, the Voice of Forgiveness?”

A warrior knows she has the power to choose which voices will guide her.

When you are a warrior for your future, you wake up in the morning with your vision in your awareness.

You are clear about your actions and unshakable in your choices. You are focused on what’s in front of you instead of what’s behind you. You are focused on what you can do, not what you didn’t do. A warrior is excited and passionate as she creates the future she most desires.”

image“A courageous warrior looks at each person as a divine being and each experience as a divine experience. She leads with her heart, powerfully determined to bring about the best in everyone and everything.

A courageous warrior speaks out even when everyone is whispering for her to stay silent. She knows that she is powerfully sourced by something much greater than herself and that she can release the judgments of others. Self-approval becomes secondary to divine approval.

A courageous warrior stands armed and ready for anything that life might throw her way—a divorce, the loss of a job, an addiction, a hurricane, an oil spill, a family illness, a deep loss, or a heartbreak—because she is filled and sourced each day by divine love and the knowledge that challenge is part of her journey.

She knows that every day she will have a choice of whether to succumb to fear or to overcome fear with love, faith, and courage. She is brave enough to leave behind those who might hinder her success or diminish her value.

She is confident enough to reach out to those who can help her win. A courageous warrior doesn’t succumb to the internal demons that would knock her down. Instead she fights for a higher truth—a higher love.

A courageous warrior doesn’t look to her past, her patterns, her family history, or her problems to determine whether she can feel good about who she is. She looks inside herself and to the divine power that created her.

She is here to gather the strength to fulfill her potential—which means she will have to face controversy. She will have to break through the limitations of her thoughts and her mind that can trick her into believing she is nothing more than a mere flawed mortal.

She will have to be willing to face conflicts that will serve to ignite her strength as she stays focused on her vision of the future rather than on the past. A courageous warrior is a woman who bravely battles with the universal enemy—self-ignorance.
So how does a courageous warrior live? She sees her fears clearly and embraces them with honesty and courage.”

image“The Spirit Is Life

Let’s begin by looking at the first piece of Cayce’s philosophy: The Spirit is Life. To me, this refers to both the Soul and the Spirit. While these two terms are often used interchangeably, they are actually very different aspects of the Divine; however, they are both part of the Divine that makes up who you are.

Your physical body is just a small part of the vastness of who you really are—like a drop of water in the ocean. Our bodies contain our Souls, which are connected to our Spirits. Our Spirits—or what some call our inner beings or higher selves—live outside of this material realm.

Tapping into the Divine is tapping into the highest part of ourselves. We are all part of God. And you get to call the Divine anything you want: your Higher Power, Buddha, God, Jesus, Allah, the Goddess, Great Spirit—you name it. It’s all your choice.

There is no one “right” answer here. But no matter what you call it, to access the Divine part of yourself, you have to raise your vibration and begin the process of remembering this and communicating directly. Don’t make this too complicated. Just know that you are part of God.

I think of the Spirit as the enlightened “always in the light” part of us—the nonphysical part of ourselves that is not actually in our bodies but instead vibrating at a higher rate. The Spirit part of us is all-knowing and all-seeing. It is crucial that we know this part of ourselves.

Our Spirits look on and remain above the fray—offering insights along the way, but not participating in the pain and suffering that are so often part of being in a body.

Soul, on the other hand, is embodied. It is down and in. The Soul brings us into our bodies, and our bodies are where the Soul work gets done. The Soul speaks to us through our bodies. And its lessons come through our bodies in many ways, including pain and illness.

These experiences are not punishment for being bad. They are Soul-making opportunities. Soul is the intermediary between Spirit and ego.”

image“When we can acknowledge that our thoughts, beliefs, and circumstances and the agenda of our Souls all affect our physical and mental health dramatically, we start to see the power of each of the pieces of the puzzle described by Edgar Cayce: Spirit, mind, and body. If we align with the immense power of the Divine we, quite literally, have the keys to our own kingdom.

To fully understand the relationship between body, mind, and Spirit is to see that there is actually no separation between these parts.

They all influence one another, and to focus on improving one brings better health and well-being to the others. We cannot simply look at physical health. Or mental health. Or spiritual health. We must look at them all together.

We must bring each of these up to its highest state in order to live a full, healthy, happy life.”

image“Imagine waking up each morning with an excitement and passion you haven’t felt in years. Imagine going through each day enjoying every moment, feeling purposeful and fulfilled. Imagine having all the courage and confidence you need to conquer your world.

The warrior of love lights up the room everywhere she goes. Her eyes are beaming with love, with compassion, with the radiance of knowing that life is a profound gift.

She knows that she has a divine imprint. And from that imprint, the purpose and plan for her life emerge. Her courage and confidence come from this knowing. Her strength reveals the most beautiful and vulnerable parts of herself.

She is excited and happy to be a part of this universe. She is committed to being the best that she can possibly be, and her vision is one that is uniquely her own.

The courageous warrior never forgets that there is boldness, genius, power, and magic in doing whatever it is she dreams of. With her beautiful, clear vision, she “looks directly into the heart of life, loving it with an intensity that transforms.

She loves every cell in her body deeply, loves every bit of human consciousness profoundly, regards every bit of history with awe, accepts every bit of the world and everyone in it with deep appreciation. She has the capacity to open her arms wide to all that is.

The beaming force that comes through her is a union of imagination and creativity. She is tapped into the divine force, the beautiful source that speaks through her, that can see a future greater than what her human eyes can see.

It is with her imagination that she opens up and looks around the world with new eyes, the eyes of the courageous, confident warrior of love. She knows that every bit of creativity is ultimately coming through the mind of God.

She has no need to be the sole proprietor of the business of living, preferring instead to be in a high-powered partnership with the creative force of the universe. This is who we are. This is who you are. This is the warrior of love.”

image“Self-love is the warrior’s code. It is the source of her courage and her confidence. When she is present and awake to all that she is, she is able to take on any challenge, any project, or any future that she desires.

Her heart wants to serve, protect, love, and heal all those who come onto her path. She is smart enough to know that anything that is holding her back will only slow her down or send her off in a direction that doesn’t lead to the fulfillment of her dreams.

Her daily prayer is to have the strength to love all of herself, the courage to listen to what she is guided to do, and the confidence to go out, stand tall, and deliver her gifts to the world.

The present moment is her source of great inspiration. Because her intention and focus are clear, she can open up to who she is and who she desires to be.

When you are not complete with the past, you drag it around with you wherever you go, using it as a reference point for who you are, for what you think, for what you believe, and for the choices you make.

Unknowingly, you dip into your past experiences, which are usually telling you what you can or cannot do. Instead of standing in the present moment and looking to a future that you’re thrilled and excited about, you sit there and listen to the same conversations whirling around in your mind.

So, knowing this, how could you expect your future to be much different from your past when you are actually going to the past (without even realizing it) to decide who you are and what you’re capable of?

In these defining moments—when you need all your courage, strength, and the highest vision of who you are—you bring your limitations from the past into the present and then project them into the future.”
