The cover star of our just-released Autumn 2020 issue is Dr. Joe Dispenza, who had much wisdom to share on the activation of our latent potential as human beings, as more and more of us break the ‘four minute mile’ of consciousness. Read on for a sneak peek, and find the full article in our new magazine (stockists list here).
We wanted to share this powerful article on breaking free from fear, written for our Winter 2017/18 issue by the renowned author, actress, dancer and teacher Dee Wallace. It is a strong call to action, urging us to leave behind the doubts and worries that prevent us from reaching our full potential in life. Prepare to be inspired!
My beautiful daughter – my best friend and fellow healer – is in Europe traveling by herself right now. She has wanted to take this trip since high school. I must admit, I was energetically torn in two. Part of me went into an immediate fear reaction: terrorists, the unknown, not being there to help and guide… The other half of me was, literally, in awe. So brave, I thought. I could never do that: go into the unknown by myself. I have to laugh, because that is exactly what I did when I left Kansas and moved to New York!
When I queried her about “if this was the right thing to do” she paused, and in a very calm and knowing voice, stated: “Mom, my greatest fear is being alone. So I might as well go conquer it.” I cannot tell you the pride and awe that swelled up within my heart. Wow, I thought, she is about to live what I teach. It made me realise, also, that I had not given myself credit for all the brave moments in my own life that most certainly put my own mother in a state of panic. And that brought me to perusing this subject of fear.
Why do we fear? What do we fear? Obviously, we fear what we do not know. If we know what to expect, and know we have some control over it, we do not fear, or, at least, we handle the fear enough that we can forge onward. Much of our fear is about “doing something wrong that we will never be forgiven for.” What if I go to Europe by myself and I can’t handle it? What do I do then about Who I Am? Of course, the empowerment that happens to us when we DO find out what we can create (and that we are creating it) is powerful beyond measure. And if we can’t handle something, we have the choice to know it’s all a part of our learning process and that there is nothing we need to forgive ourselves for.
Knowing we are the power that chooses the love and joy of our own creation/choice/action to move through fear is what we are here to learn through the experiences we choose. And sometimes, it can be a great challenge. I admit, there were moments I automatically reacted out of fear for Gabrielle’s safety (like the London terrorist attack that happened when she was in Europe.) The channel lovingly reminded me that she is powerful beyond words, and to state: I release you to your own Divine I Am Presence. And that gave me peace.
So I am looking at all the energy of You, and stating,”I release you to your own Divine I Am Presence.” I believe in you. I believe in your power. I believe in your choice to empower yourself. You are loved in this world.

“There are no extra pieces in the universe. Everyone is here because he or she has a place to fill, and every piece must fit itself into the big jigsaw puzzle.”
– Deepak Chopra
Deepak Chopra has made clear his conviction that it is within the potential of every human being to live an enriching, self-aware, magnificent life. But to reach that state of empowerment is a difficult task, calling for courage, will power and – often – guidance.
In this talk Deepak Chopra offers that guidance and encouragement, and solutions enabling you to take your life into your own capable hands. There is a spiritual solution for every problem you face whether that be job loss, financial difficulties, relationship issues, health problems or spiritual dilemmas.
Over the course of his career as a physician, teacher, and bestselling author, Deepak Chopra has received thousands of questions like these from people facing all kinds of challenges:
- Can a stagnant career be jump-started?
- In a world full of distractions and stress, how does one find time for meditation?
- How do I nurture more spiritual relationships?
- How can awareness have long-term effects on body and mind?
- How do I lead a fulfilling life?
Hidden inside all of these questions is an answer waiting to be uncovered. With practical insight, Chopra will provide the tools and strategies to enable you to meet life’s challenges from within and to experience a sense of genuine fulfillment and purpose.
“If you want to reach a state of bliss, then go beyond your ego and the internal dialogue. Make a decision to relinquish the need to control, the need to be approved, and the need to judge. Those are the three things the ego is doing all the time. It’s very important to be aware of them every time they come up.”
– Deepak Chopra
Deepak Chopra will share how to expand your awareness, which is crucial to combating the confusion and conflict we all face. Deepak Chopra will discuss what he calls “the true self,” where peace, clarity, and wisdom serve as guides in times of crisis. Spirituality is primarily about consciousness, not about religious dogma or relying on the conventional notion of God. “There is no greater power for success and personal growth than your own awareness.”
With wisdom and compassion, Chopra offers us the guidance and encouragement necessary to face adversity, transform obstacles into opportunities, and live a satisfying, enlightened life.
“You and I are essentially infinite choice-makers. In every moment of our existence, we are in that field of all possibilities where we have access to an infinity of choices.”
– Deepak Chopra
