“On the other side of fear lies freedom. ”
As we journey on our journey of becoming, we find ourselves constantly drifting away from ourselves. Often this drifting away is caused by the fear that we have internalized in our psyche.
Mindfulness Meditation: Before you continued with the blogpost… Look at the picture below, close your eyes for 2-3 minutes . Think of one thing you fear the most. This fear can be about yourself or any form of action you’ve been thinking of taking for sometime. Think of how you can position your mind towards transforming this emotion of fear.
We can indeed transform and transmute the feeling of fear within us. The reason we fear being ourselves most of the times it is because we live our lives based on other people’s expectation of us. Our fears have made us to rob ourselves of the freedom to make the right choices in life and so because of this we are unable to bridge the gap between where we are and where we want to be.
How many times have we held ourselves back because we felt our actions will not be well received? How many times have we felt our hearts race tumultuously because when we thought of the things we wanted to achieve we felt a slight nudge telling us to forget about it because we won’t make it? How many times have we denied ourselves the liberty of being true to ourselves? How often have we lived our truth without holding ourselves back?
As our body serves as a vehicle that carries the spirit, the body carries emotions as well. Fear is an emotional energy that we can be able to neutralize, transmute and transform. It is an emotion that we can be able to release and let go. One that we cannot surrender to because it is no master we can serve.
Fear as an emotion we bear within out emotional energy, also coexist within our mental energy. The thoughts we internalize into our psyche, transform into emotions we internalize in our hearts. See how your hearts beats when you think about something you are afraid of doing yet want to do with your whole heart? While we cannot totally rid ourselves of the emotion of fear, we can interrogate the root cause of our fear. What triggers the emotion of fear within us ? How do we react and act to the emotion of fear?
