DAY 250: You Are Not Your Fears

Tulips

You are not your fears. You have the power to heal. Health is your birthright.

Are you ready to clear away all your health/body related fears?

Bring out the list you created with all the things and situations you are afraid of.

Here’s something you can repeat to yourself to start this process.

“I am not my fears. It is safe for me to live without guarding and defending myself all the time. When I feel afraid, I open my heart and let the love dissolve the fear.” – Louise Hay

You can also search the Internet and find a quote that resonates with you.

Or, better yet: WRITE YOUR OWN LITANY AGAINST FEAR.

Once you have the words that work for you, repeat them over and over so that you release the fear of facing your fears.

Choose one of the fears on your list and sit with it. Feel it fully. Allow it to become as big, as strong, as frightening as it is.

Sit there. Feel it. Look at it. Allow it. Feel it FULLY. Do not pull back, do not retreat, just sit and feel it, in its full intensity.

Repeat your litany against fear over and over if you need to, but do not move. DO NOT MOVE. Breathe deeply and sit in that fear. You are strong, calm and NOTHING can make you move.

The calmer you remain, the weaker the grip your fear will have on you. And after a while, it will dissolve. Once the fear is gone, only YOU will remain.

It is this simple and YOU DO have the strength to let go of ALL YOUR FEARS.

Go through your entire list of fears. It might take you a few days, or a few weeks, but you will get it done. And once this task is complete, you will experience a sense of calm and strength inside yourself that you never knew resided there.

From this calm  and strong place inside yourself, healing can begin.

You CAN heal, but first you must let go of your fears.

DAY 249: Letting Go Of Fear Feeling Like Climbing A Vertical Wall?

 

letting go of fear

Your fears might feel real to you, but they are not. Your fears do not exist, except in your mind.

“Fears are nothing more than a state of mind.” – Napoleon Hill

A state of mind can be changed. Sometimes it might be easy to do so and sometimes it might requite your time and determination. But you CAN change your state of mind and release the grips of fear.

Years back I came across a few lines in a science fiction book that helped me let go of my fears. I wrote about the “Litany Against Fear” from the novel Dune by Frank Herbert in this blog before.

Here it is:

“I must not fear.

Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.

I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.

And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.

Only I will remain.”

You see, once you are willing to sit down with your fear and allow yourself to feel it fully, once you stop pushing it away and hiding from it, it starts to lose its power over you. As you make the decision to open yourself up to your feelings, your fear will pass through you and over you. And once it’s gone, only you will remain.

Take a look at the list of fears you made two days ago. Choose one fear that you can deal with right now. Sit down with it. Look at it. Feel it. Openly and fully. And feel it pass over you and through you until you become free of it.

You can do it!

DAY 248: Show Your Fears Some Attitude!

attitude

Have you made your list? Are you ready to learn how to become fearless?

Buckle up!

The only way to deal with fear is to face it directly.

Let me say it again: the only way to deal with fear is to face it directly.

Are you afraid of how this will feel? After all, we are talking about looking your fear straight in the eye.

You might feel quite scared by this possibility. You are fearing your fears, so to speak.

But it is a lot lighter and easier than you think.

This is a great moment that will change everything!

Follow me for the next couple of posts and let me show you how to face your fears, one by one.

I am talking about feeling your fear snapping at your heels and instead of running away from it, choosing to turn around and face it fully.

You can do it.

I know you can; and I will show you how.

Love,

Rucsandra

DAY 247: Finding Your Way To Health

finding your way

In my post yesterday I invited you to put all your fears regarding your health on paper; to bring them to the surface and write them all down.

I know that looking this deeply inside yourself might be a difficult thing for you to do. I understand that there will be resistance to this process and I want to support you and help you with it, because it is important.

Until you become aware of your fears and make the effort to move beyond them, they will continue to chip away at your strength, emotional balance and your innate capacity to heal. Your fears do not allow you to heal and live a joyful life.

So, I will get you started and offer you an idea about what fears might make it to your list, in no specific order:

  • I am afraid of illness
  • I am afraid of cancer
  • I am afraid of germs
  • I am afraid that my body will not keep up
  • I am afraid that I cannot heal
  • I am afraid of physical pain
  • I am afraid of hospitals
  • I am afraid I will get sick
  • I am afraid something is not right with my body
  • I am afraid I will become bed-ridden
  • I am afraid that the quality of my life will diminish drastically
  • I am afraid my spouse will resent my illness
  • I am afraid I will not be able to do the things I love anymore
  • I am afraid to ask for help
  • I am afraid it will only get worse
  • I am afraid there is no cure for me
  • I am afraid nothing will work
  • I am afraid to try a new medication
  • I am afraid to give up my medication
  • I am afraid my joints will give out
  • I am afraid to live in my body
  • I am afraid to move my body
  • I am afraid to pay attention to my body
  • I am afraid to speak my mind
  • I fear loneliness
  • I am afraid of life in general
  • I fear death
  • I fear the death of my mother, father, spouse
  • I am afraid I’ll get sick
  • I fear emotional pain
  • I fear other people
  • I am afraid God will punish me
  • I am afraid to take a chance

Ok, you get the idea. Take from this list what is true for you and keep going. Keep going and do not stop until all your fears, great and small, are written down on paper.

Tomorrow I’ll share with you how I dealt with my list of fears.

Love,

DAY 246: Awareness Helps You Heal

awareness

Make a list: write down all your fears about your well-being, health and the future.

Don’t shy away from any of them; put them down on paper. Bring them up from deep inside yourself, and allow the sheet of paper to hold them. I will show you what to do next, but first, take the time to do this.

Even if it’s scary, do it. Even if you feel like running away, do it. Even if you feel like you never want to read this blog again, do it. This is just your fears talking, trying to stop you from healing your body.

Become aware of how afraid you really are is the first step in the healing process.

So take some time, allow your fears to surface and then write them down.

Tomorrow I’ll tell you what to do with the list.

Love,

Rucsandra

DAY 245: What Do You Fear?

fear

Factual fear is based on things that are clearly dangerous, like venturing into a rough part of town alone after dark, like going swimming in a big storm, like driving a car you know is unsafe to drive; is the actual “fight or flight response”. This fear is a powerful mechanism that keeps us safe and out of danger.

Imaginary fear on the other hand, is, as the name clearly states: IMAGINED. There are no absolute facts in it, except the ones fabricated by the mind to justify the fear. Thoughts such as: “What if it does not work?”, “What if I cannot heal?”, “What if this gets worse”, “What if I will be disabled by this (whatever it may be: you low back, a hip degeneration, terrible migraines, pain)”?.

You do not know as a clear fact that you will not get better, that you will not heal.

Why don’t you say instead: “What is this works? What if I can get better? What if I just need to let go of fear and start stating the opposite? What if I can fully heal?”

From now on, choose to shift your mind from your imaginary fears. Be very diligent about it. In order to change a habit of thought you simply repeat the new thought pattern until IT becomes the new habit.

Rucsandra

365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 227: The Domino Effect

dominos

Is your body in need of some healing? Is your life in need of healing?

Every single change you make for the better counts a lot. Your decision to pay attention to yourself, to your body, to your feelings and your thoughts will add to your overall improvement.

Like pieces of domino arranged to create a domino effect, each little step will make the next one possible.

Although this might seem like something too small or too obvious, each step counts.

So wherever you are in your body and in your life, whatever challenge you are facing right now, take one small step and envision its power for the future steps, which might not be possible without you making the very first one today.

Love,

Rucsandra
