50 shades of fear Is the Corona virus real? ... yes. Do I totally know what it is or is it everything the media says it is, I won’t go that far, yet. . . But what I do know is that it’s excavating peoples fear like I’ve never seen in my lifetime. Gone are the cover- ups, that insulate us from having people see our fear. You can say that the only reason the fear is there is because of the Corona virus & I’m hear to say, that .. is .. just .. not ... so. . . The fear was there long before the Corona virus came along. It lives & breathes within our nerve systems only to be perceived by those who have a keen eye for seeing fear at these depths. It hides itself in all kinds of avoidant habits, behaviors & work arounds, but it’s always been there. Don’t act so surprised. Let’s not get into why it’s always been there & just say it’s from unhealed past trauma & simply part of what it means to be human. . . Take the Corona virus aspect out of it & do a little deep dive of self-reflection into the 50 or so shades of fear you constantly deal with & try to avoid daily; anxiety, timid, trepidation, terror, worrisome, horrified, alarmed, panic, distressed, uneasy, apprehensive & many others including the “core confusion” that I personally work on, which is Slow or Hesitation(when I’m scared to make a decision for some reason) vs. Thoughtful, when fear doesn’t have a grip on me & I’m free’d up to choose from a liberated & intuitive place. . . Healing our fears relieves our nerve systems of all kinds of burden & stress it constantly holds onto which makes us more susceptible to sickness & dis-ease of all kinds. . . We avoid all kinds of scary situations, healing practices & opportunities in life, because we don’t want to feel these feelings regardless of the rewards or all the benefits people rave about. The Corona virus isn’t inviting us, it’s intruding & forcing us to deal with our fears & apparently it’s not letting go or going away till it’s point has been thoroughly made. Let’s get the lesson, whatever it may be.

I first went to see Harold based on the recommendation of a friend of friend. Having had typical therapy sessions in my past, I was intrigued hearing about Harold's healing approach, so I reached out to him. In our first session, I was still reeling from my first divorce, my ex getting remarried, and navigating being a single mother to my son and daughter. Harold quickly helped me begin to understand how I needed to unlock my voice and communicate all the feelings I’ve been withholding in order to find my true stengths and to be the best me I can be. That was over five years ago. I've since lost my dear Mom, my stepfather and remarried, only to learn that my second husband was not at all the right fit for me. Through it all, Harold has been there. While my journey is still a work in progress to be sure, Harold continues to guide me and to help me heal, learn and grow.
