Face your fears head on!
What do I mean? I noticed that my fears grow when I feed them with my thoughts. Every day they seem to grow. I try to push them away, close the door, turn the key and loose it. Doesn’t work that way.
Somehow they are back in my life without me noticing. Than BAM I get hit by another wave. So, I decided I don’t want that anymore. I don’t want to be the slave of my fears. What did I do?
I wrote. I’m a firm believer in the power of writing. I used to write morningpages every day. Now I turn to pen and paper when I look for something I can’t see or can’t see yet. The writing process helps me to shed light on the things still in the dark.
Aren’t you sick of your fears? I was. Writing after my morning meditation led me to a place of calm exploration. Detached from the emotion I was able to look underneath. Do you know what I found? My fears now had nothing to do with my current life. Experiences from my past were hunting me. I went deeper into them and finally identified the real cause of my fears. After shedding a lot of tears I let it go and that was it.
It’s not always that straightforward. I know. But in general that how it works.
At the moment I write a short guide about 3 ways to release the grip of your fears. Stay tuned.
