In this episode Gia shares Something Positive: the story of blind runners in the Men’s 100m race in the Paralympics. Each runner runs with a guide at his side who helps him stay in his lane and guides him to the finish line. The relationship involves maximum trust and vulnerability on the part of the blind runner and humility and selflessness for the guide. Truly inspiring!

Next they discuss the importance of being authentic and vulnerable and the fact that it takes true strength to be open and real. While our society favors strength and discourages vulnerability it is crucial for our spiritual development that we learn to be authentic. Other ideas covered include:

  • We fear vulnerability if we aren’t sure we are worthy of love
  • Vulnerability is actually a relationship with yourself because only you know your hidden depths
  • Fear of being vulnerable is actually fear of seeing yourself
  • No one judges us as harshly as we judge ourselves
  • We use our experiences to validate our fears and look for proof in others that our fears are real
  • Gia describes a practice to help you make your highest choice rather than acting from fear (see blog below)
  • Self-referring vs. self-reflecting
  • What we really long for is our own Soul’s wisdom rather than validation from another person
  • God is in everything, even in every emotion you experience, so it is safe to be who you are in every moment
  • Your journal is the perfect place to be completely you and practice being vulnerable
