Being Present with Your Fear & Difficult Emotions.
Ground yourself, strip yourself down to loving silence. ~ Rumi
Beyond your fear and difficult emotions is a doorway where love lives inside of you.
This love for yourself is always there, though sometimes it can seem out of reach and difficult to feel.
You may be out of practice.
First, you must be present to the stillness of who you are.
When you’ve stumbled and struggled, you may not have realized that love was inside of you, and you did not know how to access it.
When you begin to dissolve the cycle of fear and struggle – a new love response can rise to the surface in your life.
Your fear can make you feel small and separate, anxious and insecure.
Your fears are not the truth of who you are.
It’s not as though you won’t ever feel fear again, you will, but you can learn how to be with it when it happens for you.
You may run and hide away from what is painful for you. Many of us do.
What if you could choose a different response – a response that comes from a loving place inside of you.
Here’s a practice:
Feel your fear – whatever makes you upset, anxious or fearful.
Now, instead of running from it or distracting yourself away from it, sit with it for a few minutes.
Ask yourself – who are you now?
Allow for a new feeling to rise to the surface.
You may feel overwhelmed, even more fearful or anxious – but then, just when you think you can’t handle the feeling any longer, the feeling has shifted, and a new feeling has replaced it.
You may not notice it in the moment, but in time, you will become aware that a new feeling is there.
It’s love – the love for yourself that was always there for you under the surface of yourself, but you may not have known it was there.
These feelings aren’t always comfortable, but if you are willing to sit with the discomfort, you will notice the feelings shift and change – and be able to feel something new.
Your willingness to be with yourself, no matter what, without distracting yourself or running away.
This is an important and a very loving thing to notice.
A new awareness and habit has began.
You are showing up and loving yourself through your fear. Even if you feel shaky, wobbly or anxious.
That’s true love. And even if it’s temporary, it’s freedom from fear.
Keep coming back to this love for yourself.
Being true to yourself is knowing what’s going on inside of you – emotionally, physically, and mentally, and communicating it honestly to yourself and to those around you.
When you speak this way, you are using your true voice.
Are you living from a place of love or from a place of fear?
Fear is worrying about what you’re going to lose or what other people might think.
When you give yourself over to self-love – the purity of your heart and soul, you become one with this moment.
Allow what has happened before to fall away. Practice letting go of the hurt and pain that you are holding on to.
Your truth is born from the unity of your body, mind and heart – and when these are out of alignment, you betray yourself. You don’t pay attention to yourself and you turn away.
You are in fear.
Breathe in your fear, sadness, and fatigue and exhale them out with each breath.
You don’t have to hold on to these emotions.
There’s no need to look outside yourself for love.
With your breath, come back to your centre, where your truth lies. Today, tomorrow and always.
New ways of being in the world do not happen by chance…
