Their Story Matters with Sara Troy and her guest Leah Guy, on air from May 30th
Author, intuitive transpersonal healer, spiritual teacher, professional speaker, and media personality – Leah Guy releases her new book “The Fearless Path” out via New Page Books!
There are not only stories in the book, but compelling information about our energy system and overall wellness that I think is necessary for anyone on the self-care journey to understand. It’s a practical book, easy to understand and useful no matter the pain or suffering one is enduring. Addiction, weight issues, heartache, anxiety, sexual assault or behavioural issues…the information is applicable and relatable.
Leah Guy believes that disconnection is the root of all fear and the attempt at letting go causes more problems than it solves. Debunking the myth of detachment and other popular New Age ideologies, she emphasizes that there’s no escapism in emotional healing. Rather, the process is about putting the personal pieces of your heart, mind, and soul back together again. The Fearless Path offers a radical approach that will heal trauma, fear, heartache and mental and physical health.
This book highlights the impact that fear, guilt, shame, and grief has on humans and how to process and heal the pain. We seek happiness and peace and it is only through connection and acceptance that we can reach that goal. Emotional healing requires putting your broken pieces back together again. To mend your heart, you must have access to your suffering. To do this you must be willing to tear down the walls that create the confines of your emotional prison.

Through time we learn to avoid suffering by lying to ourselves and others, which serves to increase emotional distress and disconnection. These are the negative energy patterns we use in an attempt to separate from pain. However, it is through connection to our divine nature that we can be free. To be whole and healthy, it is necessary to accept and process the suffering and be open to the guidance and direction of Source, the Creator, the great Conductor. I call this energy “God.” As we walk in faith and connection to Source, we find a balance between spirit and body, between heaven and earth. A rich spiritual life leads us to a satisfying and peaceful human life. This is the final link to healing. Integrating spiritual wisdom with earthly experience allows us to emotionally process and evolve.
Enlightenment is achieved with the alignment of heart and Soul. Every experience in our lives offers exactly what we need to heal and grow into this alignment. If experiences are dismissed or abandoned, the progress of our spiritual evolution grinds to a halt. Our purpose is to stay connected to all our experiences and emotions so we walk toward the alignment and experience true self-love and peace. Because we are so unique, our paths to healing must be unique. That is why we are each given different experiences to process and endure in our lives. As we process the suffering in our life, our hearts are free to participate in our higher purpose. Emotional healing is important because it is the path that allows you to reach your true purpose.
The quest for peace and happiness is fulfilled through the process of emotional healing. If we avoid healing, we become trapped by the illusions of our minds. Our minds trick us to believe that peace and happiness are achievable only if we do something different or better. There is the illusion that earthly attachments will make us feel better with more money, the coolest car, or the new drug. These false beliefs mask the need for healing. It will not suffice to depend on external things to satisfy the internal war of emotional distress. Peace comes from your Soul, not by mental illusions.
Shifting your perspective from how you view the reality of your mind to the reality of your Soul helps define who you are. This is where you heal and gain insight to why bad things happen to good people. It is from the Soul that we can accept our weaknesses and move from fear to greatness. The more we heal, the more access we have to the alignment and reality of our divine being. It is from this place that we can experience the peace and happiness that we crave.
The spiritual path is a difficult one for many. It symbolizes vast ideologies that include acceptance of things such as compassion, love, and grace. It is believed that we must surrender our own desires or needs for that of the larger cosmic plan. The more you commit to healing and aligning your heart with your Soul, the easier it becomes to accept the aspects of spirituality.
It is your responsibility to tap into the connection of your divine presence. It’s scary to rely on faith and trust in yourself. It may require that you go against what other people think you should do or who you should be, but it’s possible to find happiness on this path.
The more we are guided spiritually, the more wisdom, joy, and peace can be attained. We need the balance and strength that comes from a faith in something beyond the confines of our minds. There is a great relief as we tune into our spiritual wisdom and faith because our minds attempt to make us believe in the false promises of the world. The mind tells us that we will be free of our hardships and turmoil if we work harder or make more money. But it is only through the connection to your divine being that ultimate freedom is possible. As you become emotionally healed you align more closely to your Soul where peace reigns.
By accepting and trusting that suffering and joys are part of a greater plan for our lives, we connect to our divine selves and loneliness is relieved. This requires welcoming the unknown and working through our fears. On the fearless path, shame softens into love, and guilt becomes compassion. We can walk in faith and know love. Love transcends the belief that the world will provide the relief we seek. Relief is within you and connected to your Soul.
Your spirit is the expression of your Soul. You are divine energy that is perfectly made with a unique and guided personality and purpose. Your Soul does not change, but your relationship to your Soul may change. Prayer, meditation, and spiritual work are things that connect to your Soul. The nature of prayer and meditation carries a high vibration energy, which is more in tune with the vibration of divine energy. As you become one with your true self and create the openness for the heart to give beyond what is materially possible, you connect with the frequency of divinity.
Spiritual faith is a belief structure that is unique to you. Beliefs are often based on what we’ve been told to believe. It’s important to discover your own beliefs and ensure they are attuned to your heart.
Be careful not to aim low in your spiritual quest. The mind can limit the possibilities of the world, including the potential of knowledge, our personal lives, love relationships, and spiritual beliefs. Harnessing divine energy makes all things possible, including the extraordinary.
If we allow ourselves to witness the divine order of things, we can see miracles happen every day. They may not be life-saving miracles with neon lights, but the miracles and connection of life become huge in the eyes of a spiritually tuned in person. This is the divinity that connects us to each other.
