Who has no fear? Fear sucks. It has a terrible way of taking over our lives, despite our best efforts.
Fear is worry magnified. Fear is the energy which contracts, closes down, draws in, runs, hides, hoards, harms.
Overcoming Fear will help with preventing fears from interfering with your life.
It’s worth the courage it takes to modify your behavior, because fear and anxiety are huge obstacles to building self esteem and confidence.
This session we are privileged to face our own fears. We have learnt about how we can face and challenged our fears positively.
So, how to Overcome Fear? Katherine recommends four ways:
- Start by acknowledging it.
- Define its parameters. Approaching your fear as something with a beginning and an end can help you see that you have the power to contain it. If you can clearly see the shape of your fear, you’ll be able to recognize when its affecting you and handle it more effectively. Consider you are bigger than your fear and fear will slowly cease to exists.
- Imagine the outcome you desire.
- Start seeing fear as an opportunity.
The opposite of Fear : LOVE
Love is the energy which expands, opens up, sends out, stays, reveals, shares, heals.
Fear wraps our bodies in clothing, love allows us to stand naked. Fear clings to and clutches all that we have, love gives all that we have away. Fear holds close, love holds dear. Fear grasps, love lets go. Fear rankles, love soothes. Fear attacks, love amends.
Every human thought, word, or deed is based in one emotion or the other. You have no choice about this, because there is nothing else from which to choose. But you have free choice about which of these to select. You can choose Love instead of Fear.
Catch up with all of you in our next sharing session.
