Shared Message from the Universe - Be Fearless

It is my belief that messages from the universe speak to me and remind me of something that is inside of me. When I first see them, I often don't even know what is really being advertised. Instead, the message conjures emotions or thoughts relating to something that is going on within me; in my heart, in my mind, in my soul. I see them on billboards, in magazines, store windows, church plaques...everywhere.

I secretly call them soul whispers.

The messages are all around us


As the tides change...
Be Fearless

I walked past this store window on the Upper West Side yesterday, smiled, and turned around to capture this photo.

As I walked to catch the bus home I kept thinking about the word fearless.

Fearless:  showing a lack of fear
Fear:  an unpleasant emotion of impending danger, pain, evil...real or imagined
Synonyms:  brave, bold, daring

I had just left an art journaling workshop that I discovered via  I am new to art journaling and wanted to gain a few new techniques.  And, yes, I've done a few classes online, I've watched youtube videos, and honestly I really wanted that feeling of learning while being surrounded by others who were doing the same thing. I wanted the community.  So, I signed up not knowing anyone else in the group and had a great time.

This message from the universe, in my opinion, affirmed my very big step to Be Fearless. 
 I took a risk.
 I signed up. 
I went to a place where I knew no one. 
I was fearless. 

I am so happy that I did. I gained some knowledge, had a really wonderful time, and now feel a little more confident in moving forward with my art journaling and The Sketchbook Project.

So, I want to encourage you today to do one thing that requires you to Be Fearless. 

Just one. 
I know you can do it.

  7. Love your creativity and the warmth of your writing - This post was fun! I like when you see "messages" in windows and everywhere - and also yes, that feeling of going where you know no one and finding connection, however simple or deep it is. The joy of knowing you stepped out, and affirmed once again the beauty of life.
