Carolyn Cooper, our Energy Healing Expert
As an Energy Therapist, I have worked with people from all walks of life and have found that the number-one deterrent that holds us back from stepping up and being our best is lack of courage, which stems from lack of self worth. Whether from current circumstances, childhood issues, or even cellular memories we carry from our ancestors, feelings of unworthiness affect all of us at some time.
A woman I admire tells a story about growing up playing basketball and, as a teenager, being successful on the court. When she went to college, she wanted desperately to play on the girls' basketball team. She found out when tryouts were and arrived outside the doors of the gym at the appointed hour. When she pulled the door open and peeked inside, the girls were already running drills, and they looked good! Then came her negative inner sentences, all the insecurities: "You're not good enough," "You can't compete with them," etc. She goes on to say she paced up and down the hallway for a very long time - in fact, until the tryouts were over. She returned to her dorm room totally disgusted with herself for not having the courage to at least try. She had let fear dash a childhood dream. That failure had nagged at her ever since that day.
