I was recently contacted by Billy Atwell to be a guest on his podcast about Fear Not: Living Beyond Fear.
My first reaction was “Oh $#@& NOOOOO!”
I mean, who was I to talk about fear anyway. I have lots of fear! I was probably the last person he would really want on his show.
I was talking this over with a friend, telling her my feelings, when she astutely said, “It sounds like you have a lot of fear but you’ve figured out a way to move forward and do the things that scare you anyway. Sounds like you are his perfect guest!”
And she was right. It reminded me of the important role of the wounded healer. Many of us interested in herbs and healing came to this path because of our own challenges. Our gifts often weren’t born of the mystical perfect health, but more often because we persist in helping ourselves and others. And it's because we've been on this journey that we have so much to offer!
I ended up doing the podcast and it was one of my favorite interviews. It’s about 20 minutes in length and we specifically talked about: how to get off the “fear bus”, that using a breath mediation can help to center and ground you, acknowledge fear as a friend and let it help you be prepared, to take control of your internal dialogue, to set aside your ego in favor of your purpose.
