So nice to go toe to toe with my fears!
Yes , since I was a little girl, I have been terrify of snakes. I mean, even those pesky little snakes. Of course, I could add to that list 101 other fears. Admittedly,I used to be frightened of the dark when I was about six. Then,as I grew more emotionally mature, I let it go.
Honestly, I think children seem to be able to let go of most fears easier then us adults. I mean, a reassuring parent or teacher can ease their mind.
Unfortunately, as we get older, we sometimes stop trusting. — Trusting our bosses, spouses, ourselves or even God or the Universe. We start to question a lot more too. Our intellect rationalizes our story of fear as ‘reality’. But is it?
Too often our attachments to our fears become our operating system. It is that limiting belief that keeps us trapped or keeps us in our ‘safe’ world. How limiting have you become? Fears keep us trapped. We can’t do this because we’ve been hurt. We can’t do that because it cost too much or it’ll take too much time, it’s not worth it. Our list go on and on and on! Does this sound familiar? If so, you have a choice.
Danger is real! As Jim Carrey said, “there is a difference between the dog that is going to eat you and that dog in your mind!”. You can learn, in a flash, to distinguish the difference. It is entirely possible to move courageously forwards.
I invite you to take a good look at your fears.
Ask yourself are your fears serving you or strangling you ?
Are they based on real danger or are they a story from past hurts,situations or conditioning?
I know that a key to a present, fulling life is to let go of fear!
Move forward from a trusting place with faith.
I invite you try it!
Do something that you know scared you and limited you.
I did! So, I know you can.
New Years Eve, I held a snake! Not just any snake, big, yellow boa constrictor. This beauty could coil her body around me and snap me like a twig. She didnt! Instead, she gave me a gift of seeing her beautiful eyes,touching her strong colorful skin and feeling her power! I am passed my fear.
Guess, I won’t be worried any more about those little garter snakes in my backyard.
Face your fears in faith! Freedom is right there waiting to liberate you!
