“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
***Note: Everyone in my images are real women. They have families and loved ones. They aren’t models. They were nervous to do this and gracious to allow me to share! My sessions are intended to empower women and to encourage a tenacity of spirit. Please, let them know they’re beautiful. But, don’t separate their body from their whole.***
