“Getting passed fear is the hardest part, but once you build the confidence and you dedicate yourself to you and your vision, great things will start to happen”. -Yedi
You cant get passed fear without facing it. I’ve found that resistance brings forth a lot of complication and the more you resist, the more you hide, and the more you hide, the more work you allow to pile up. This goes for spiritual work and physical work. The main thing to know here is that when there’s fear there is a blockage, so by knowing this, we start to recognize fear once it presents itself, which then makes it easier to go within to clear it out. This concept alone has helped me shift into a higher vibration. It’s allowed me to see life through the eyes of creation, self-love, and possibility and no longer through the eyes of fear and limitation. (You will find the exercise that helped tremendously at the bottom of this post)
Fear taught me forgiveness and it taught me to let go. I realized that I was holding on to things that hurt me beyond my soul. I was holding on to disappointment which mirrored back to me as if I was disappointing and not worthy of living a life past my traumas and failures. I think that at some point throughout our lives we have expectations which aren’t always met and we end up fighting battles that we weren’t prepared for which leaves us a bit confused and worn out. We fake a smile, we live in denial, we settle for less and convince ourselves that that’s okay, that that’s all we deserve and next thing you know you create this life you don’t even recognize and you end up working around your purpose and not towards it.
When there’s fear there’s anxiety, there’s isolation and those nerves that make your stomach churn any time you’re put in a situation that makes you feel uncomfortable. Oh, how I disliked that; your palms get sweaty, your voice in your head gets louder, you start to repeat everything you say to someone like should I have said that, am I acting right, how can I get myself out of here? Everything just seems impossible. Social gatherings were the worst for me it got to a point where I wouldn’t even look at people at the store, any human interaction just made me feel awkward. That’s when I knew there was something strange going on with me because I was never like that growing up, I was shy but always broke through.
I lived like this for some time, as the years went by I started to notice this bitterness and a loud silence in my mind, it was like this depression that wanted to take over. I was self-aware and was still putting time into my daily practice because it was the only thing that kept me sane, but honestly at the time it didn’t feel so effective but at least I knew what was going on and the signs were clear, I just didn’t know why, or how I was going to get through. This wasn’t something I could escape or run from because it was happening within, it was with me everywhere I went. So here I am stuck dealing with this heaviness that I couldn’t handle anymore. So said to myself “enough is enough if this is rock bottom, then the only way to go is up and only I can create my happiness.”
So I decided to face whatever was going on because for me I feared the thought of not reaching my fullest potential more than fear itself. I wasn’t going to let time pass me by, I wasn’t going stop living my life because of fear. I wasn’t going to stand in the way of my own success anymore.
So where do you start? Well, you start from the ground up literally. Tackling your fear begins with grounding yourself, and being present in the now, not what happened yesterday, or what might happen tomorrow, the right now! and you ask yourself these questions:
• What am I afraid of? • Why am I afraid? • Where in my body do I feel or hold this fear?
I want you to then take a moment to reflect on this and be honest with yourself. This is one on one with you, there’s no rush or need to hold back, just relax and allow it all to surface.
Once you have called upon this fear notice where in your being you feel this blockage.
Now imagine that you’re surrounded with beautiful white light, know that you are protected. Then picture yourself holding a golden sword, you hold it with the greatest intention, and with so much love and value.
When you’re ready, imagine yourself cutting the cords that attach you to this fear, or particular situation. Tell these fears, enough is enough, I release you once and for all.
Take a deep breath and as you exhale imagine all that tension you were holding in, be released out into the universe, allowing it to be purified, and replaced with healing and love.
Visualize your connection to the divine source, feel your connection to this world and cut any cords that block your abundance. With each breath you cleanse away any debris attached to this connection, anything keeping you away from your highest and truest self.
Imagine your soul travel up a tunnel of light, this tunnel is a representation of your connection, you then hold your golden sword straight up as you make your way through and watch how effortlessly you cut and clear any remaining cords. You then feel a sense of relief, as if a weight has been lifted off your shoulders.
You are now connected to earth’s purity and to the infinite universe, you feel a healing energy go through all the areas where you once had these cords. You now feel free, protected and energized.
Now speak these affirmations out loud or mentally,
• I am worthy, • I am confident• I am fearless •I am deserving • I am ready to receive! ♥ I CAN and WILL accomplish anything and everything I set my mind to!!
Now where there was fear, there’s now confidence, where there was hate, there is love. Day by day you will begin to see the shift in your life, for you have shifted your state of mind into a higher vibration. When you see it, you believe it, when you believe it you manifest it. So remember that you matter, you are loved and you deserve a life full of happiness. Namaste ♥
