C is for Courage

The Soul-Wise Living Alphabet

Inspired April 2013

The Soul-Wise Living Alphabet is launched to Awaken Your Spirit & empower your thinking. Words are Energy! They can lift us up and they can just as easily bring us down. Spirit driven words will raise your vibration UP. By finding the meaning these words have in your life and embracing them, one at a time each day ~ after the course of a month, The Soul-Wise Living Alphabet will have raised your energy up. My desire for you is that you are able to embrace your inner spirit  and, as a result, live In-Joy. ~ laura


C is for Courage!

Courage…What IS it anyway? When I think of courage, I often think of warriors going into battle. Now, THAT takes courage. No doubt, warriors are afraid and filled with raging fear but they go into battle anyway. To me, Courage is the ability to face a situation, make decisions and take action no matter what you see in front of you. 

Courage….do you have it? My unequivocal answer is “YES” you most certainly do. It’s a question of  letting your inner spirit engage and take the driver’s seat in whatever you see ahead of you ~despite your fear! Otherwise, your courage will be deflated and that fear will let the challenges stop you. You need to know that ~no matter what ~ when you are guided by spirit, the universe, god (whatever you call ‘it’) that your courage to make great choices and take appropriate action will come to you in droves! You will have an abundance of it in fact! It’s not about being NOT being frightened or scared. You may have that still. It’s about having that deep conviction that you are DOING for the best possible outcome for all. And, with that deep conviction, your courage will shine forth.

Have you ever found the courage to do something that you thought you could never ever do? I doubt you have to think to hard to find that YES you did ~ every child taking it’s first step had courage 😉

  5. Having courage daily allows you freedom to live. I think we all have some courage everyday, some more then others but with the right support, you can harness that courage and own it.
