For the most part, fear does not exist in isolation. It is our perception of danger, that creates a fear based story. This does not have to be a big danger, like the fires burning is SoCal right now. It can be mini traumas- how we perceive another’s words or actions for example.
Recently the science and yoga world came together for me in the form of two books. The PolyVagal Theory by Stephen Porges and Freedom from the Known by Jiddu Krishnamurti.
Proges writes about the effects of living in a stress based heighten nervous system. Krishnamurti writes about why we have fears that leads to this stress (or feelings of being unsafe). It comes together in our thoughts. No two people will analyze a situation, or a conversation the same (for example) based upon past experiences, learned patterning and even generational influence. These samskaras are fine if you feel fulfilled, content and are able to pull yourself out of pain and a funk (normal, part of being human). However, if you are chronically hurting then it’s time to examine to root- how you think, analyze and project. It’s something I’ve been working on, and it’s not easy or comfortable. However, I do believe it will lead to change and transformation giving me freedom down the road. What’s your thoughts?

FIGHT FOR YOURSELF
Sometimes God allows you to go through difficult times so you can learn how to love yourself better... Often it takes conflict and opposition to make us realize that we have just as much power as we choose to operate in.
We discover that on this journey of life it is super important to fight for ourselves.
To stand tall and keep our witts in the face of adversity is often a challenge. But after the storm has passed, we see that beauty is within us, and our own hearts and opinions matter just as much as anyone elses.
We cannot fight well for something we do not value. We must value our souls in order to make war for them. We must value our emotions and not be afraid of feelings. We must value our bodies, or we will abuse them. Valuing ourselves comes from seeing our selves through the eyes of Christ. We are each unique and irreplaceable.

Day 11 of 30!! The anticipation of fear!! We build up so many possible scenarios in our mind when we are in fear. And we start to believe they are true!! And then one day we face our fear and boom - we realize all that we built up was BS!!! And the only way to find out is to walk right through it!! My challenge for today - I have an online book club and I haven’t been able to get into the book I suggested we read. I have was afraid to own up to this. So today I did just that. I confessed!! On this day lest we forget all the courageous people who risked their lives to make ours better and give us the freedoms we enjoy to live lives we love!! #authenticfactor #affearchallenge #fear #fearless #steppingintoyourfear #overcomingfears #remembranceday #freedomfromfear #growthmindset
Have you ever wanted more? But then asked yourself the question “Why can’t I just be happy with what I have?”
This is exactly where I am at. I graduated college and immediately started grad school. I graduated with my Masters and immediately applied for a supervisors position. A year and a half later, I took a leap of faith and started my teaching career. When my oldest was about a year old, I started working on my Doctorate. I’m just about done with it and I keep asking myself what is next.
I love working in a clinical laboratory and I love molding the future of laboratory science but I just want more. I want freedom. Both financial and more importantly the time.
When I was presented with this coaching opportunity I never in a million years would have thought it would set my soul on fire. I get so much joy out of helping and inspiring others to work on the best version of themselves. To watch them grow confidence and to grow as a person it just the most rewarding thing.
I don’t have all the answers. In fact I have very few. But what I do have is a vision, belief, and discipline for this side gig to become so much more.
I want to invite you to join me for a virtual coffee date this week so you can learn about how this opportunity can change you too. You won’t regret it.

So I learned that this past Thursday was the 40th anniversary of the death of #normanrockwell
, when I also learned about the fabulous art of @artist4freedom
which reimagines many of Rockwell’s paintings for our modern age. This one was particularly powerful, #freedomfromfear
Happy smash it Saturday guys!
Okay let's get real... Fears can totally stink. 👉They can hold you back from trying something. 👉they can create anxiety. 👉needless worry
👉they can actually send you towards what your worrying about!
Who wants any of those?
Not me! It's like a plague😊
I definitely have different fears that I could allow to paralyze me but I'm all about getting them out and crushing them! I can literally feel myself shedding the crap when I share them! It's an emotional release and I'm grateful for it❤
A personal fear I have is the fear of going backwards in my life. With my own personal fitness... as a wife, as a mom, as a sister, as a daughter , as a friend.
And I've realized it is because I'm afraid of disappointing people. Of letting them down.
Of not being what they want me to be.
Do you understand what I mean?
My antidote to this is first prayer.. then saying this outloud people love me for who I am❤
Aaahhhh just saying it outloud feels better❤
It's also a sign that I need to work on my own self love❤❤ I know it may sound silly but it works!
You gotta try it❤❤ Your welcome to post a fear that your letting go below to.
Let's do this together❤❤😊😊 #fightthrough #nocomfortzone #becausefaithismine #ibelieveinbetterfeeling #releasetheemotionalcrap #emotionalhealing
“Fear is like fog; it spreads everywhere and falsifies the shape of everything... When you know what is frightening you, you take back the power you had invested in fear. This also separates your fear from the night of the unknown, out of which every fear lives. Fear multiplies in anonymity; it shuns having a name. When you can name your fear, your fear begins to shrink.” — John O’ Donohue (Anam Cara)
Call it out.
Speak to your fear what is true.

The in between seasons, where days can vary by temperature and cloud cover so dramatically it makes for a shift to being comfortable in unpredictability. Getting out of the standards and embracing what nature gives to us. I find the most inspiration comes from these days, and some of the most gorgeous views. .🍁🍂🌵🌻🍂🍁
One of our favorite activities is walking these hills without an agenda, no set distance to hike or time limit. And just to see what will happen or even not happen. .🌾🍁🍂🌵🌻🌵🍂🍁
There's my family, my strong and sexy love with the dog pack. This will always be one of my favorite pictures and I'm so glad to share a slice of my life with y'all. .🌾🍁🍂🌵🌻🌵🍂🍁🌾
Where do you most like to hike or explore???
Freedom from all fear -- happy Tara day.
Every 8th of the month is Tara day. Buddha Tara is the manifestation of the ultimate wisdom of all the Buddhas.
If we rely upon Buddha Tara sincerely and with strong faith she will protect us from all obstacles and fulfill all our wishes. Since she is a wisdom Buddha, and since she is a manifestation of the completely purified wind element, Tara is able to help us very quickly.

🌈 ON Mood Shifts and Being More Aware #mindful #currumbin #mentalhealth
It’s not always easy managing your mind. I used to not be so aware of my mood changes, like when they occurred, why they occurred, whether the #moon
or the weather or my cycle had anything to do with it. 🌸
However in the last month since I’ve learnt a little more about myself, I’ve started to be so hyper #conscious
about even the slightest fluctuation of my mood.
It’s such a fascinating #journey
Like for example, right now, with some changes about to happen in my life, I feel slight anxiety and I feel unsettled and I realise it’s because I’m the kind of girl who likes routine and having familiar things around me. 🌸
I never used to be like that, I was always a #gypsy
in my ❤️. But I guess things change 💙💕 the ever glowing movement of life! ∞
According to anxiety statistics, Anxiety is the most common mental illness in the united States. Anxiety disorder affects 40 million people and is almost 1/5 of the U.S. population.
Overcoming anxety and fear is something that every person deals with. Think about this: What are you sacred of? If you claim to serve the God who created everything then why are you afraid of anything?
Watch the video. It’s life changing. https://youtu.be/AcZLFa9j_PQ
Loving ourselves can be challenging at times.
In fact most of us tend to beat ourselves up over our mistakes or compare what we haven't done to what others have accomplished.
This week when those instances or thoughts come up I want you to ask yourself Can I love myself anyway?
Grab your favorite journal and pen and take some time to reflect on your answer.
We are meant to make mistakes in life, that's how we grow, but it's also important to love ourselves through those mistakes.
Sending you so much love! xoxo Kaycee

Never in my wildest dreams would I imagined I would be living in less than 60 sq ft. ⠀
Maybe It’s because I had so much fear of being stuck in a claustrophobic box in the same old place every day....⠀
Don’t be afraid to see life from a new perspective. ⠀
This world is big scary and beautiful, please refrain from letting the fear stop you from opening “that door” or turning down “that road”.⠀
You never know what beauty it will unfold. ⠀
"Freedom is a light for which many men have died in darkness." ~inscribed in Philadelphia's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
Who deserves freedom? Where does one person's freedom end and another person's freedom begin? What are you willing to risk or give up for your own freedom? For someone else's freedom? How can you be a light? How does writing and reading contribute to freedom?
'What happens when someone dies?' asked the 7yr old boy sat next to me in a waiting room whilst his mum was in her appointment. I told him to ask his mum but he was relentless, so I explained that when someone dies it's like them being in a different room from you,because you can't see them anymore like when your mum is upstairs in the house and you are downstairs. When your mum is upstairs you know she still loves you right?' 'Yes, he relied'
'It's the same'
I will admit that the scars I bear in life have been as much emotional as they have been physical. After my breast cancer diagnosis I had an opportunity to question myself, look deeply inside my soul and spirit at some of the emotional triggers that could have contributed to my illness. I feel my emotional thought life impacted greatly on my immune system leaving it vulnerable and exposed. My cortisol and adrenaline levels were at a constant high as I silently battled my own personal demons. There was now a huge wake up call and an opportunity to deal with the inner turmoil I had silently carried and get help. 💗
A small inner voice encouraged and prompted me to find the courage to turn around and face my fears. It took time and it was a process but eventually I found my peace. 💗
I want to encourage you to look at your inner self and clean out those unwelcome tenants who are squatting in your mind. They have no right to be there. It's time to set yourself free from what holds you down, makes you anxious, and generates unhealthy fear. Believe me those fears can seem ridiculous to your logical mind, particularly if you are a strong woman. 💗
If this resonates with you, get help and eliminate anything that may keep your body and mind in a toxic state. 💗 You deserve to be fully and completely free. 💗
So excited for tonight’s Cocktails With Kaycee!! 🥂🌺🥂🌺🥂 If you’re ready to dig deep and move the shit that’s blocking the life you want out of your way, you’re definitely going to want to show up tonight!!

Can’t wait to see you there!! xoxo Kaycee 🌺🥂
Reminded many times this weekend: Are you trusting on your own understanding? Or that of your Creators? I am surrendering my fears and doubts to God, and trusting he will do it again In My Favor. ❤️
The Devil card combined with Mimulus guttatus flower essence for overcoming ones fear.
Since I was pretty young I have been in this strange habit of blocking my own success. I get really close to a big success and then sabotage myself. Here’s an example...I remember being maybe ten and loving soccer. I LOVED it. And I would always race down the field and make it to the goal and then absolutely miss the goal. I was aware of this strange phenomenon even then because it was almost as if all my energy got sucked out of my body at that last moment. Never friggin scored a goal! And I was not a bad player. In my adulthood I’ve done similar things. Ive opened up to the world and made new friends, I’ve felt connections and then severed those connections subconsciously. It’s a habit that I feel is ready to die. I am ready for my success. I’m still a bit fearful of it but that’s ok. I’m ready and open to it.
The devil card is a fascinating card and it has a different message for everyone but the essence of it is the same and it’s about releasing ourselves from our own self imposed hell. Releasing our addictions and our habits that sacrifice our long term happiness for the short term comfort. It’s about embracing the shadow side and becoming aware of our limitations so they can be shed and we can experience freedom. Let’s step into our rainbow bodies.✨✨✨🌈✨✨✨
