It’s not just OKAY to acknowledge your fears, it’s essential!

You’re making big decisions that are allowing you to work towards a lifestyle and work life that’s more in line with who you are and your desires for yourself and those close around you.
But that doesn’t mean that as things begin to change that you’ve got no right to feel the fears that come with this as well.
In fact, change and the unknown is likely to bring forth different but just as imposing fears.
But unacknowledged fears can hold you back and keep you stuck….. which is not what you want when you’re working hard towards something so important.
Talking about your fears can feel really scary, especially when they are coming up as a result of choices you’ve been consciously making.
It can feel massively vulnerable and squirmy.
For example… you’re now working for yourself, you’ve left the comfort of paid employment, but your fear is that you won’t be able to make enough money. This was one of mine when I left my job to set up my personal training business.
I didn’t want to talk to anyone about it because I had it in my head that people would tell me I was stupid for going full in without keeping on my job. But I also knew that I’m that sort of person – I do things full out and want to give it 100%!
On a deeper level, this was a fear of failure too.
Fear is a natural experience, both a psychological and biological reaction. Mostly to keep us out of danger.
But there are different types of fear – fear from immediate life-threatening danger and fear learnt by association and identification as we’ve grown up.
If you’re in life-threatening danger then, by all means, listen to that fear and get the hell out of that situation!!
But if the fear comes from within and you sense it’s coming up because of association or identification then I urge you to explore it further and not brush it away.
Sensing and recognising fear when it shows up means you’re being present to your feelings and the vibration fear presents.
Enquiring where the fear comes from and why it’s shown up means you’re willing to discover the cause.
Speaking your fear aloud or writing it down means you’re willing to show your humanity.
Sharing a fear with someone else means you’re willing to open up to seeing the fear from a different perspective and let it go.
Once you hear your fear in open space you often realise how little real power it has over you.
It’s not about overcoming fears, it’s about acknowledging them and moving on anyway!
“If a problem is fixable, if a solution is such that you can do something about it, then there is no need to worry. If it’s not fixable then there is no help in worrying.” ~ Dalai Lama
