Question: "Why do I feel so confident within myself, yet I am so frightened about letting this out and sharing it with the world?"

Saint-Germain: I am glad that you asked this question. Because you are not the only one feeling this way.

You see, many sensitive and intuitive people like you have learned to develop your inner world to such a great extent that you find it difficult now to let the outer world be part of your life.

This is a survival mechanism, of sorts, developed in an emotional environment in which you were not able to be yourself because your was misperceived, and perhaps unappreciated by others. This survival mechanism kept you functioning, when others didn't understand you. It did that by building walls around your inner world in order to keep the outer world from hurting you. But as you already know, any time that walls are erected to keep the outside world away, they also prevent the beauty of your inner world from getting out. This is your dilemma.

So, it may be that you were perceived many times as being a shy, sensitive, or even a quiet , when you were actually bubbling over inside, with energies that were seeking active release and .

That survival mechanism, as you know, has served you well.

But in order to change it now, and let your inner expressions guide your outer actions, you will need to look at the root situation. You need to find that point in your emotional life, when you began to feel safer in your inner world, than in the outer world of relationships.

A sensitive person is a vulnerable person because he or she is permeable to the thoughts and emotions of others. But as I have said at other times, this is truly an asset and a , for it makes a heart-connection possible with the outer world that is genuine and authentic -– not contrived or insincere.

This is something you didn't understand in your past, when you first sought refuge within yourself. But if you look now, at the , strength, and inspiration that seek expression, you will know that they issue from the strong intuition and spiritual sensitivity that has allowed you to stay in contact with your heart, all these years.

Trust this to guide you, when you step out, more and more, into the world. If you do, then the apprehension will begin to disappear. You will find that you start to express yourself in ways that you haven't allowed yourself before; and it will finally feel authentic to you – it will feel, more and more, like the person you have always perceived yourself to be. Let yourself come out gently and gradually at first, until you feel safe enough to do this with greater regularity.

Thank you for your question, dear one.

I AM Saint-Germain.
