What is fear? Is it rational or irrational? What can be the stumbling blocks? Can fear lead to anxiety or depression? Can fear become transformative and does it then lead to self empowerment? What are your childhood fears and can they be conquered? Dr. Manly believes that our fears begin in our fetus stage and that the fetus can absorb toxicity.  We may have childhood amnesia preventing us from remembering our earlier stages of our lives. Dr. Manly quotes one of Carl Jung's many quotations, "who looks outside dreams, and who looks inside awakens."  What is the end result of transforming fear? Think of using fear to become part of the process of evolving within. Sometimes we may over react to a situation and cause an irrational fear. How do primitive societies tackle fear and how does the wolf or lion respond to a fearful situation? Are you addicted to stress or anxiety?

Mindfulness contributes to the present moment where fear can become diminished. Does humor help with a different perspective of fear? How does creativity help with fear and anxiety? Dr. Manly believes that we are all born with joy and that we all have an eternal light. She believes that she is the guide holding the lantern by listening to the heart of the patient.
