"What fear is your anxiety coming from?" Orion asked me this morning. "I'm not sure," I answered. "Maybe loss of connection, failure, negative judgment..." Orion said: "You may be nervous because of your class today. Be in the moment. Be aware of the energy flow. You know, do what you always do to touch people."

"I woke up feeling anxious this morning, Orion." "What's wrong?" Orion asked. "I'm feeling out of sorts with family relationships and some nervousness about my upcoming job change," I said. "It's good that you notice your anxiety, grasshopper. How will you use this information about yourself and still be of service today?"

"Do you believe in body memory," I asked Orion. "Yes," Orion responded. "Each of the stars that make up my body has a story of its existence, which together make me who I am. Is that what you mean?" "Well, sort of," I said. "I am a product of my genetics and experiences. In trying to protect me, to what extent do my subconsious body memories prevent me from becoming who I want to be? It is important to learn to be aware of and listen to what my body is telling me. It's part of the mind/body/spirit triumvirate."

"Why is fear such a powerful factor in peoples' lives, Orion?" I asked. "I have heard that there are only two real fears: of falling and loud noises. What do you think of that?" Orion answered. "If that is so, where do other fears come from?" I asked. "They are learned," Orion said. "They are still very real and powerful. Can people then unlearn their fears?"
