Being Fearless: Tapping Into Your Heart

Posted by Julie Christensen on 10/19/14 9:32 AM

Your WorkOur mission is to inspire individuals to discover their gifts and graces, and support them as they share their talents in a loving and profitable way. Discovering your gifts and graces can often mean you need to be fearless in pursuit. We're blessed to have a community of talented and fearless souls. Today we're featuring Julie Christensen, as she shares how being FEARLESS by tapping into her heart has transformed her life.

What does being fearless mean to you?

To me, being Fearless is having the courage to take the hand of your "shadow-self", and let it lead you to your "Golden Shadow"...That part of you that is pure Greatness. To me, being fearless is about living from the vast space of an open heart, rather than the confines of a doubt-filled mind.

What is the most FEARLESS thing you've done lately?

One of the most fearless things I have done lately is leaving my life as an established artist in Sedona, AZ., to marry and take care of my husband in Michigan, who has secondary progressive multiple sclerosis.

To me, fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death. -Taylor Swift

How did SWIHA help you discover your gifts and graces?

SWIHA helped me to see where the healing benefits of art making and the creative process can merge with, and support other healing modalities, creating a potent platform for transformation of body-mind-and spirit.

What advice would you give to someone who is thinking about taking a big jump or just starting to discover their gifts and graces?

The advice I would give to someone thinking about taking a big jump or just starting to discover their gifts and graces is...Clear your mind of the "what-if's"....Take a hold of your heart... and JUMP!
