The Real Reason Why you are Afraid to Live the Life of your Dreams

Updated: Feb 4, 2022

How to eliminate fear and walk in your purpose


Trapped in a box, stuck, stagnant, anxious, anxiety, depression, lack of passion, burned out, dead end job

Trapped with no where to go

I once was where you are. At a job that was draining every ounce of my energy, leaving me depleted and feeling like I was not holding up my end of the bargain. I was blessed with this amazing career. I was a Registered Nurse. So, why had I become burned out & suddenly realized I was not happy in my role? Of course I felt incredibly guilty for thinking about myself.


Many people dream of being a nurse; they pray, beg, & plead to be accepted into nursing school. That very person was me! So, why after only 10 short years, was I feeling burned out? I was supposed to retire as a hospital nurse--just as everyone else. It was a dream come true. Yet, it didn't feel like a dream; but more like a nightmare. One day I looked up and I was not happy. I looked around and said, "Yeah something's gotta give." I deserve more. I can't just keep thinking about the patients at the expense of myself."


We are taught that, if we are in a helping profession, we are supposed to be happy regardless. It does not matter the stress levels. It does not matter the enormous amount of heaviness that it puts on our bodies. It does not matter our own level of happiness; because if we are helping others, then we are automatically happy right? Wrong.



I was an unhappy Registered Nurse (slash) Certified Nurse Case Manager. Nope, getting that Certification, ditching the scrubs, & wearing business attire to work did not fix the problem. And guess what? All of my Nurse Case Manager coworkers were unhappy as well. They told me so, but they were just too afraid to admit it publicly. My work desk and personal phone became somewhat of a counseling and encouragement office for my co-workers. I wanted so desperately to help them; to help the patients; to help myself; to help us all!


I always felt like I was a pretty brave person and one day I got the strength to speak my truth! I said, "This ain't it. Help me find my true purpose!" I put it out there into the Universe. After speaking my deep down truth, & letting it out into the Universe, everything happened so quickly! Listening Hands LLC & everything that you see now emerged.


There is power in speaking your truth--how you truly feel inside. The Universe listens quietly & provides us with what we need. When you speak your truth, all of a sudden, you make connections that you never knew were right at your fingertips. So why can't you grab a mic and speak your truth to walk in your purpose?


Because there is debilitating fear in charge caused by an imbalance of energy & inner power. That lack of inner power is keeping you in that position that is not fulfilling you. Yes, you have blockages!


Blockages? How can blockages increase fear?


In order to be confident in your own skin, feel your power, & make big moves you have to be balanced. If you are not balanced, you will not be able to follow your intuition and that gut feeling that let's you know what is best for you. Why? Because the energy won't be flowing in those areas, therefore those areas will not function properly. These areas of energy are called chakras.


Chakra means "wheel of energy;" and we have 7 major chakras. The energy in our chakras aligns with who we are and our spiritual growth. Understanding the energy in each area of your being can help you understand nearly everything that you have gone through (or not gone through) in your life.

Balanced Chakras
Chakras (Energy Centers)

  • Crown-wisdom, enlightenment, connection

  • Third Eye- Intuition, guidance, insight

  • Throat- Speak things into existence; Manifestation Center

  • Heart- Feel passion & Love for your work

  • Solar Plexus-Inner power, Confidence, Manifestation Energy

  • Sacral- Balanced Emotions, Creativity

  • Root-Connection to Abundance, Feeling like you have Purpose on this Earth, Feeling Supported in who you are.


Above is a breakdown of the chakras in relation to manifesting a fulfilling life. Are things starting to make sense now?


When you have debilitating fear that keeps you from stepping out towards your dreams, you are very likely lacking solar plexus energy & root chakra energy.


How do I know you ask? It's magic! *wink-wink* As an experienced intuitive Energy Healer, most times I can see your blockages just by looking at you & the way you hold the energy in your body.


  • You are afraid, because you do not feel empowered.

  • You do not feel empowered, because that energy is blocked.

  • Instead of feeling a surge of self-confidence and inner knowing flowing through you, you feel the opposite--fear, uncertainty, & self-doubt.

When you start to get balanced, you can feel your inner power and you can make anything happen in your life!


You have already been on your spiritual journey you say and you already understand chakras? I bet you don't understand everything about balancing your energy. We can all learn something new!


Did you know that the third-eye is NOT your connection to the abundance that you are seeking?


Stop working on that third-eye and learn more about being balanced. Your third-eye is not the reason why you feel like you don't know which way to go. You are exactly what you say you are: stuck & blocked.


You need to start working on all of you from the root to the crown!


At a crossroads

You can make that choice now!
