Have you ever stopped to ponder the saying “There is nothing to fear except fear itself”? Have you ever stopped to wonder if fear is like a habit that we have taken on? One that stops us from moving forward, like most bad habits do; one that keeps us from getting enough sleep, wrecks our peace of mind, and generally causes more trouble than it’s worth?
How many times have you been forced to live through your worse fears coming to fruition? And yet, here you are, reading this, so I am going to assume you survived it and are here to tell the tale. So my question to you is: Did worrying a whole lot about it or staying frozen in fear help you when you were in the thick of it? Did it prevent you from having to live through each moment? Or could you have faced it regardless of all that extra energy you put out on it. Have you ever wondered if maybe it would actually have been nice to just go through it the one time, instead of all those other times in your head first?
I know it might be tempting fate to ask “What’s the worst that can happen” so let’s just start out by scratching that one, like forever. How about asking the Universe “What is the absolute best outcome for everyone involved here in this situation?” and go from there? Why be conditioned to always expect the worst? Maybe (well, definitely but since we are releasing fears I don’t want to scare anyone!!) if we put it out there that things could go totally off the rails… they will. And maybe, if we release all that limiting thinking and decide to project the best possible outcome for the highest good of all, we can become a magnet to that instead.
Go ahead and practice. Start with the little stuff and work up from there. Try smiling and laughing and dancing while you do it, it speeds up the process and gets those amazing results pouring in just a little bit faster.
And so it is… not scary at all
