A 7-Year Life Tsunami Had Me Facing My Fears — Nina Zapala

7-year life tsunami had me facing my fears, aka shadow energies. Each one arrived with a different lesson I needed to learn. It was a time of great pain, many challenges, and a grand emergence. It took a lot of work, yet from the chaos is where I discovered my Divinely Inspired personality type.

As I peeled away the shadow energy holding me back, I gained wisdom from the liberating lessons I was experiencing. Difficult, in the long run; but, oh-so freeing!

A big lesson I learned is when I hold on too tightly to my independence and unwillingness to ask for help, I lose what real living is; a loving celebration with others, in good and bad times.

When we align with our fearless, pure, childlike persona in tandem with our eternal being, we begin to co-create with Divine Intelligence. This alignment assists you in attracting unlimited abundance in health, relationships, and wealth. Undreamt dreams come alive, and unthought-of creativity expresses through you in your daily life. Wow! Life becomes a possibilities playground, full of eternal potential.

God rarely gives us upfront guarantees. He seems to prefer inviting us into adventures that include equal parts fail and mystery. ⏤ Allen Arnold, author of, “The Story of With: A Better Way to Live, Love, and Create” I highly recommend this book.

Facing Fears

The first stage of my 7-year life tsunami came with a lot of traumas and drama. Slowly, I realized that things shift if I could be present, slow myself down, and do what I needed to do for the day.

I was stopping the chaos, confusion, and cyclone of disruption in my life. It’s here that I dove deep into my personality type, realizing I was living my life based on my Contrary, inferior trait, which is not intended to guide me in life. In fact, it opposes my Essential, primary trait, which is supposed to inspire and lead me in life.

I devoted myself to studying my personality type, coupled with a deep commitment and trust in my eternal self to lead the way. Trust and faith helped me to discover myself slowly. While my family was very loving and supportive, I, and I alone was the only person who could discover hidden, dark aspects of myself. Fear led me to falsely believe I’m not good enough, too strange for others, or feeling I’ll never fit in.

Here’s the thing; we are all given free will, aka the freedom to choose; this is a Divine right-your eternal being created you to live from this understanding.

I’m not supposed to fit into someone’s version of who I’m. #lightswitch moment! ⏤ Nina Zapala, Founder of the Soul’s Role in Personality Typing

Facing My Fears: The Dark Web of Shadow Energy

Here’s what I learned when I faced my fears during my 7-year life tsunami:

Messages of Hope

As my life slowly but surely, shifted, the cloak of fear lifted. My commitment to co-create daily with the Creator, regardless of external world messages; a mountain of debt, no resume responses, divorce issues, health scares, the challenges of single motherhood…

  • Shadow energy doesn’t want us to see this; it wants to keep us in guilt, shame, and not-enoughness, the dark side of life.
  • Confidence, clarity, and courage began to replace confusion, chaos, and conflict.

Free From Fear Meditation and Journal Prompt

Three years into my 7-year life tsunami, I began a writing practice. Please know I’m the Curious type, ENTP, so it takes a lot for me to keep up a steady pattern, but I did. Routine is an aspect of my Contrary, inferior trait, which is extremely useful in some instances.


My morning meditation practice looked like this and does to this day. I say a prayer, Dear Divine Intelligence, Show Me. I then sit in silence for at least five minutes, repeating the prayer to myself. Yes, my mind is often out of control, but repeating this prayer repeatedly helps me still the mind. Don’t worry if you can sit for five minutes, do two. The idea is to quiet the mind.

Note: Divine Intelligence can’t penetrate busy, fear-based mind energies.

Journal Prompt

As soon as you come out of your meditation, open your journal. It can be a spiral notebook. The physical thing is a non-issue. Write from a free flow of energy. Free flow means no thinking; just write and observe the words that arrive on the page. It could be a word or three pages; it’s your process and your message, don’t judge. It may take weeks or months for anything to show up on the page. For me, some days it did, while other days, nothing.

This is as it’s supposed to be. Divine Intelligence is telling you on the days that nothing appears, do nothing. Nonaction. You have to really trust, listen, and persist. I can’t tell you how many times I did nothing, and suddenly an idea or persona showed up, helping me clarify the next step.

Remember when you co-create with Divine Intelligence, nothing is too big or small, and what you thought would work isn’t even close to how things unfold in reality. So, skip the attachment to outcomes and let things reveal themselves when the time is right. I know, contrary to what we’ve all been told, but I’ve discovered what we’ve been told is often not in our “own” best interests.

Barriers to free action also occur using psychological constraints or bullying ⏤ trying to control the actions of another by threats or coercion. ⏤ Anne Rooney, author, Philosophy From the Ancient Greeks To Great Thinkers of Modern Times
