Writing down your insights is very helpful, and we encourage you to keep a journal of your explorations, so grab a journal or a pad of paper now!

As I feel into my ability to face adversity and things that frighten me, I become aware that I have a great deal of courage inside of me. 

When have I needed courage in my life?

Pause for a moment to remember an experience where you called on courage within you. As one comes to mind, feel into the feeling of courage that welled up in you at that time. Feel into it now. Notice the strength it offered you even though you were afraid. 

Think of a few more times you accessed your courage.

Notice that you can feel courage arising within you as you look for it!

It is natural for us to have courage. It’s a super-power! 

The more we are aware of it, the more we access it. And the more we access it, the more we activate it. And the more we activate it, the more present it is in all kinds of situations. 

Courage is our ally. It takes courage to choose joy. It takes courage to change a negative mindset to a positive mindset. It takes courage to stand up for ourselves.  It takes courage to say no.  And sometimes, it takes courage to say yes!

In what ways can you see courage would support you in your daily life?

Also, in being true to yourself and being open to exploring all that you feel within you. 

It’s natural for courage to come to our assistance in times of extreme crisis or need. However, courage is aways available within us to support us and give us strength even for seemingly little things.

See what happens in your life as you keep your awareness on courage as you meet the various circumstances in your daily life. 

Remember that writing down your insights can be very helpful. 

Please share your insights so we can be inspired by each other!
