Mom and I spent a summer solstice in an Incan Sanctuary discovering how an ancient civilization worshipped GOD. The similarities/parallels were staggering. What Americans see as idol worship was pure joy to mom and me when we translated in our own hearts and minds what the natives were portraying in primitive times. The connection between Earth & Sky (heavens) were intimate. I was introduced to pure joy when you find the ability to make your own personal connections with Nature and Heaven. I challenge everyone to find an inspirational location to be alone with the Holy Spirit and connect on some level and experience the Joy of the Lord.....which is our strength! When we find the joy in strengthens us beyond belief/supernaturally rejuvenating us!

I find expressing emotions very challenging. I feel the emotions of joy & sorrow, but hesitate to allow them to show. There is risk involved in showing emotion. Others may not see this side of me, and think me quite expressive, however I feel quite inhibited emotionally.
Is this an injured self image? How do I get free of feeling that my emotions are a risk I prefer not to take?

let it all hang out sister!! These emotions and expressions are a part of you that GOD created!! Let your personal light shine! Who cares what others make of it! You are special and unique in HIS eyes. Those expressions are HIS gifts to you....and what you choose to do with those are your gifts in return to HIM!!!!!! Get connected......and see what manifests in your life and the life of others when you allow yourself all you can be!!
