For each and every one of us, life has its totally unique way of presenting us with our own individual challenges; some of which we may really struggle with, because we see them as impossible to overcome. At the time – as we become totally immersed in whatever the issue may be – isn’t it true that we can often feel like we are at the bottom of a big dark hole, with no obvious way to escape…we feel trapped?
The current Coronavirus pandemic seems to have the world in its fearful vice-like clutches, strengthening its grip as the days come and go. The world media inform us that globally, health authorities are working around the clock to find a cure.
Isn’t it also true though – that very often – we find a solution within us, after searching endless possibilities, outside of ourselves? Now I’m not saying that I personally have a remedy for something that is spreading like a wildfire.

Finally, in tackling the real big one – how? – it’s a choice of becoming increasingly aware of the major part fear plays in all our lives, and not letting it dominate. Self-observation is absolutely critical, as we cross from fear to faith.
Believe it or not, just the simple daily self-talk of stating something like: “I am a Super-Human and easily overcome challenges – I am not bullied by fear!” will have a massive, positive knock-on effect to all our lives.
Without being overly-scientific, we each have neuro-peptide chemicals in our brain; these are molecules of emotion – like fear, love & passion – that circulate throughout our whole body, depending on the ‘command’ we give to them. So, let’s seriously begin to take control and send out some life-changing signals, starting with…
