How to sit with your worst fears

You are in crisis,  a crisis of fear and anxiety.  Well if not today you probably had that last week or the week before or it’s coming.  We live in the age of anxiety.  Fear creates this.  But some of my fears are real! Yes, that is so.  But it does not help you.

To change the feedback loop the mind has created in order to help us survive we must find a way to bypass the fear messages that create more anxiety and pain.  We do not need to go into denial and repression.  That is also the old way.

I am going to ask you to sit with your fears and deeply feel them.  To sit in silence with fear is terrifying to most of us.  We will create endless distractions, diversions and addictions to not sit with the fears in silence.  But beloved ones, the FEARS want to be heard and seen.  Then they will evolve into powerful wisdom and action that creates love not more fear.

So sit.  Sit in the evening light.  Wake at dawn and sit.  Take yourself to the toilet during the day and sit.  It takes but a moment to breathe deeply into the body and feel.  Women have always done this and some men too.  Sit with your worst fears and watch them evolve.  You have more power and wisdom and insight than you will ever know until you sit in the silence of love.
