The Illusion of Fear
Fear is a creation of the mind, an illusion! It drips in bit by bit to the point that we stop ourselves from being who we truly are. Why do we listen to rubbish that feeds our minds with more and more fear?
What is it about fear we are willing to give up and run away? We forget who we are, what we are doing or being. We start to doubt life, ourselves and our abilities, we feel small and incapable, then we run or hide. We even make ourselves sick with this Illusion called Fear.
Fear is an illusion, it is a lie to keep you small, to keep you in the box, controlled. Answer and acknowledge a power in fear and you will create ever growing blocks and limitations for yourself.
Can you remember the last time you really wanted to do something, but didn’t do it? What was it that stopped you, what turned you off the idea? Was it that voice inside your head?
The mind chatter that invades your head, confirming the fear, making it the most significant thing in your life, giving you all the reason why you should fear what you are fearing, and it gets loader and loader, and more intense, and more intense. Oh we have all been there.
What if this mind chatter is not really yours, not your thoughts? What if you are picking up on stuff just floating on the universal plain, the collective consciousness. Have you ever had a brain wave and the person beside you said it at the same time your saying the same thing, you know what I’m talking about, I know you do. Was that your thought or was it theirs?, or was it just on a thought on a cosmic wave, waiting to be found, and expressed?
We are so capable, we have amazing abilities that we deny having and using, yet we use them everyday but we like to believe it is something else, if we can’t see it, it does not exist.
So fear, is it real at all, because at some stage in life we all have overcome some type of fear. Tell me what was at the other side of that fear, that you saw as impassable? Was it as bad as you thought? And as you transcended that fear, what happened?
What replaced the fear? Was it excitement? was it amazement or exhilaration, or pure joy? Many time we misidentify the energy that is in our bodies, we have names that imply one thing but it’s another, as a child we may have been misinformed, and we have locked it into us.
Butterflies in your tummy have to mean fear, it could not be excitement – or could it? ?
Fear is placed in your life from a very early age in childhood and then reinforced and reinserted all the way through your life. This reinforcement shows us how real it is, and it becomes more and more real as we are not willing to look at it.
Picture yourself in Sydney, and you are heading to Climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Butterflies come in, and your mind brings you to your fear of height and you run away and you miss out on spectacular views, the experience of a lifetime. What have you gained? What have you missed out on?
Now see yourself well over half way and the views and the sense you get from being where you are, and knowing you maneuvered around that barrier that is fear, look back, is that fear there, can you see that block now, hell no, you are buzzin. The fear was a lie, something made up.
Fear, It isn’t real unless we create it to be. It doesn’t have power over you unless you give it the power. It doesn’t rule your life unless you let it rule your life. You have the key, you have the controls, is time to take back your life, and follow your dreams?
Are you ready to step into who you true are, and be that in totality and create the magic that is you? You are on a high, loving every minute in total joy and excitement.
When fear pops up, I remind myself that behind that wall, that barrier is my desired life and living and my dreams. We must stay fully present with what we call fear, we need to study everything about it, what it looks like, feels like, what it does to you, how it starts, what is involved, be with this fear, what thoughts bring it, and what it brings, what choices and actions do we take. The action of avoiding is the fear itself, so not avoiding it makes it vanish, and you transcend it. Fear is simply a choice. There is nothing to fear but fear itself. Walk toward and through it and it is gone.
I have too many tools that I use to ease that movement past these blocks and fears, If you would like more information or a skype coaching session please get in contact.
