On 11/11, I sat underneath an Oak Tree in Central Park, facing my friend Rebecca. We came to the park to receive guidance and outline our evening event with The Numinous together.

Rebecca recommended an exercise she includes in her book, Rise Sister Rise, where you partner up and one person asks the question WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WERE NOT AFRAID? Over and over and over again. The person asking the question is not meant to provide feedback or emotional validation, rather – the intent is to hold a neutral, loving space. I suggested we practice the exercise on each other as a way to energetically embody the experience we’d be holding space for a few hours later.

We started with me.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WERE NOT AFRAID?

Tears emerged as all the unspoken words, oceans of sound – not yet sung, began rising in me – as if they were patiently, yet urgently awaiting their cue.

“I’d write the book.”

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WERE NOT AFRAID?

I’d create videos and audio meditations so people could do Angelic Breath Healing anywhere, at any time.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WERE NOT AFRAID?

I’d spend less time in Los Angeles and more time in places I feel a vibrant sense of connection with.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WERE NOT AFRAID?

I’d stop caring what other people thought of me, my work, my offerings, my way, and just do what I’m called to do. No questions. No excuses. Just go.

Each time Rebecca asked the question, the deeper my consciousness dropped, shedding light onto the silent voices buried deep within me. I started to feel clearer and motivated, rooted in the knowingness that a part of me not only knows - but deeply yearns - to contribute in ways that feel in alignment with my Heart.

We all have this knowingness, and when we create the space to truly reflect and be witnessed in this space, our Truth emerges. It may not look or sound like anyone else's, and that's exactly the point.

So in the midst of the collective call to Rise Together, I ask you:

What would you do if you were not afraid?

What kind of support do you need to take action on this?

What would you do if you knew you were supported?

What are your Angels' guiding you to do? (I asked myself this question after I asked what I'd do if I were not afraid, and not surprisingly, the same guidance emerged!)

The most inspiring and revolutionary people on the planet do things they are afraid of. They show up in spite of their greatest fears, and the world changes as a result. We need more people who are willing to rise and act on their inner guidance -- AND, please know that the answer to this question can be quite subtle. Perhaps you are guided to plant a garden, to drink hot water with lemon every morning ... these may seem subtle and unrelated to all that is going on now.

Sometimes we are guided with baby steps that set us up to fully receive the larger vision. Don't deny the little things. Take it one step at a time and remember to ask your Angels for support. They are here to support us, especially during these immensely transformational times.

What would you do if you were not afraid?

Let's do it, together.

Love,

Madeline
