We are living during extraordinary times.  The world has experienced unprecedented challenges and changes in a short period of time.  As a result, we have had to pivot quickly, think beyond traditional patterns and practices, and come up with far-reaching, more holistic solutions. We must probe deeper into our attitudes, beliefs, visions, and strategies.  Innovation demands greater honesty and reliance on our authentic self. While this process is not always easy or comfortable, self-introspection, honest communication, and reaching for higher answers provide more effective long-term solutions rather than adhering to short-term Band-Aids.


As a sign on a highway road construction stated, “The inconvenience is temporary. The improvement is permanent.”


I have had the pleasure to call Richard Feller my friend for many years. I used to co-teach with his late wife Carla Gordan, one of the most gifted trance mediums I have ever known. Her intuitive personal guidance helped me in more ways than I can express. I have described in depth Carla’s work with nonphysical guides in my most recent book, Friends in High Places.


I am delighted that Richard has finally decided to share his vast knowledge of business, education, administration, spirituality and metaphysics. I commend him for his courage to come forth and introduce the element of spiritual awareness into the marketplace. He has an unbelievably fascinating and varied background, including successfully navigating seven different careers while now entering his eighth as an author.  He has been an executive with two of the largest corporations in the world, as well as other businesses where he served as the CEO. In those roles, he helped to bring transformation to the business world as he successfully navigated the waters of change.


Richard has shared his knowledge in this remarkable book about the incredible destructive role fear plays in our lives as it imprisons our mental and thinking faculties while concurrently destroying our self-confidence and self-esteem.  He expands upon this theme and illuminates the importance of removing fear, regardless of whether in our personal lives or in a business setting. Richard articulates how the world has attempted to convince us that fear is real and not founded in illusion.  As his book analyzes and examines fear, and its associated false concepts, you will recognize how fear has been used to control your beliefs and limit your thoughts while shackling and enslaving you; decreasing your self-love and self-esteem; while limiting how you think and function.


Yet all of our fears lead us to learn how we can grow beyond them. In this book you will be guided to remove your fears and return to your roots of spiritual freedom. You will discover that you possess greater personal power and strength than you have ever known possible. While you will enhance your capacity to thrive in business, even more fundamentally, you will enhance your capacity to thrive in relationships, health, and any other area of your life that is meaningful to you.


Due to the importance of this subject, Richard has been inspired by his nonphysical spiritual teachers to write a trilogy on fear-clearing. This is the first book in that series.


I am excited for the life-changing information you are about to receive. This book contains the answers to not just business challenges, but to the many questions we all have about how to live a rewarding, soul-fulfilling, and successful life. I wish you well on your great adventure.
