Here is her expanded thought …
Fear, like nothing else, is a doorway to something richer in our lives. It invites expansion. The uncertainty is the gateway to possibility; so to use fear as fuel for courage, we just have to feel curiosity and be open to the infinite possibilities. I truly appreciate my fear because it shines a light of awareness on what needs to be healed.
This is key – how someone chooses to perceive their fear is what makes ALL the difference in their life. I had a mentor that told me once: “Those who choose to believe that the presence of fear represents proof of a flawed or weak character, risk their dreams dying inside them.”
I SO agree with that, denial and shame are dream killers. The more defensive thoughts we have, the more fear we will feel. We can’t control everything that happens and control is a key word here. Our ego mind loves control. We think it’ll keep us safe but it ends up being our worst enemy.
Fear can be sneaky, showing up in different costumes that leave us unaware of how it’s ruling our life. Many people feel uncomfortable even admitting that fear is causing problems. We see it as a weakness, something we should hide from others and overcome by ourselves. And yes, True Fear is a natural survival mechanism that\’s here to protect us, but False Fear, on the other hand, is an important teaching tool that will enlighten us.
The truth is that no change can come from staying in the same place, making the same decisions, taking the same risks. Fear affects all of us. It’s nothing to hide. On the contrary, it is worth examining so it can point us toward a better way of living. Our courage is a spiritual journey, and it will support us in living the life that we came here to live – a life filled with joy, meaning and freedom so we can give our greatness to the world!
