Courage is fear that does not stop you.
                           Eleanor Roosevelt

Where does courage come from?
How do we access our innate courage?

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, courage is the balanced emotion for grief.  Grief manifests in the lungs.

We have accumulated grief over the many loses we have experienced in all of our life times.

Grief can stop us from moving froward. Grief prevents us from experiencing true joy.  Grief can make us doubt ourselves.

To build courage, we must strengthen our lungs.
Let us begin with sending love to our lungs.  Love melts blockages and transforms every aspect of our lives.

Let us do a practice using the 4 Power Techniques.
Body Power is to sit up straight.  Place one palm over the lower abdomen, place the other palm on your chest area.

Mind Power is to visualize beautiful light coming in through the top of the head and radiating throughout your lungs.

Soul Power is to say hello...
Dear soul, mind and body of my lungs,
I love you.
You have the power to heal yourself.
You have the power to heal my grief.
I am very grateful.

Dear Divine Love and Light,
Please bless my lungs.
Please heal the grief I carry in my lungs.
I am very grateful.

Sound Power is to chant:
Divine Love heals my lungs.
Divine Love heals my grief.
Divine Light heals my lungs.
Divine Light heals my grief.

Practice and chant for 5 to 10 minutes when you first wake up.  Chant while you are driving in your car.  Chant while you are working.  Chant silently if you are not in a situation where you can chant out loud.
You will then notice you do not feel so much fear or doubt.  You could even feel joy deep in your heart.  You can move ahead. Fear does not stop you.  This is courage. Your own courage.

We are very blessed.


  1. Being a heavy smoker for 41 years I do have some serious breathing issues. After doing this practice only 2 times, I experienced huge physical relief. I was using an inhaler sometimes 6 times a day with little relief. Something has changed deeply in my lungs, an odd but welcome feeling of relaxation. I no longer fight to take a breath. How blessed I am, how amazing.

    1. Thank you for sharing, Toni. This is a very powerful testimonial for the chanting practice. Chanting and bringing in Divine Light truly does remove blockages.
