Fears are not meant to be conquered; they are meant to be embraced. Fears are not meant to be avoided; they are meant to be recognized. When we avoid our fears, we become unpredictable and reactive.
Our culture does not teach us how to relate to fear. We often are ashamed of them, frozen by them, agitated, or heated by them. When we experience fear, we believe something is wrong within us or around us. Can we look at our fears from a different viewpoint?
At times, fears have become so familiar in our lives that we can’t recognize them. These are the most potent ones as they keep us in a pattern and prevent us from making good decisions. Familiar fears are often hidden under a behavior that does not reflect our truth. Our inability to rest, our engagement in too many things, our impatience, our frustration, and our lack of motivation could cover our deepest fears. Can we choose to pause step back and listen to what is vibrating within us?
Our fears are a gift. They are the bridge to a deeper part of ourselves. Our fears bring light where we can’t see, they allow us to understand our needs, set better boundaries, and realize what still needs healing within us. Fears are our allies in our connection to our true self. They give us a road map for our healing journey.
Trust your fears if you want more light in your life.
