Simple Solutions #1 - A Remedy For Fear
Fear is a powerful emotion that we all feel. Many deny they are afraid but we know better. Life offers us many unknown situations and fear is a natural reaction.
When you sense fear allow yourself to feel how it feels in your body. Feel the contraction and the closing down. Feel the energy of fear.
Then focus on someone or something you love. Love is the opposite of fear. When you open to love, you expand beyond your fear. An open heart takes over the fear and quiets it. When fearful, focus on love instead.
Another short but powerful shift is to feel the fear (whatever it is) and do it any way. You feel the fear inside but you don’t allow it any power over you. When you stare fear in the face and walk over it, you build self-confidence.
One important caution here: fear sometimes can be an intuitive message to be careful when true danger exists. These sensed fears are to keep you safe.
