How to look at fear.
Fear is our biggest stressor.
We fear a lot of things.
Failing as parent, death, job loss, poverty, rejection, being alone…
Our fears tend about things, we can’t control.
Even if we feel we do.
In reality, we don’t.
A strategy I use for fear, my body.
Connecting with sensations.
The more you understand fear.
The better you become at it.
Fear is a message
When you feel fear., look at it.
Become aware of body sensations.
Where do you feel them?
Breathe into the sensations.
Stay with it.
Let fear move through your body.
Stay mindful of sensations as they arise.
Let go of tension.
“It’s the fear of honest self-reflection that keeps us trapped in patterns of stress and discontentment.”- Pema Chodron
Do you have control of your deepest fear or you need to let it go?
