Dear Fear — “I hear you, I understand you and I know that you’re trying to protect me. I don’t need your protection now. My heart is open. My old wounds are healing. I just want you to be a good friend and not run my life. I hope you understand my sentiments. It’s been so long and we needed to have this conversation with you.
Today, I’m practicing saying thank you to my fears for serving me, meeting my needs, and keeping me safe. Now, I lovingly ask you to leave me and I let go of all my fears because I don’t need you anymore. Thank you for serving me this long effectively.”
“We are all faced with a choice when we wake up in the morning — will we choose to live our lives in fear or faith? Then we step out into the world where good and evil battle every day. It is the charge of each one of us to bring light and love into the world and we do this through every thought and interaction we have on a daily basis.” — Scarlett Lewis
“Buddha was asked what have you gained from meditation? He replied – nothing! However, let me tell you what I lost: anger, anxiety, depression, insecurity, fear of death”.
“What makes a person brave is to stand up for what is right even when you are afraid because it’s the right thing to do. I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”
“If you desire pleasure because you fear pain or the absence of pleasure, the door to pleasure remains closed. Once you have learned that the absence of pleasure is not an abyss of darkness to shrink from, fear will no longer prohibit your fulfillment.” — pathwork.org
“You only feel resistance on the rise. You will only feel resistance when you attempt to seek a higher version of yourself (your true self), whether through enterprise, spirituality, or creative expression. If you pursue goals that don’t feed your spirit, you will feel no resistance because there is nothing personal to gain or lose. There is no fear. “
“Becoming familiar with fear and looking it right in the eye so that we can really come to terms with what we feel that we cannot address. If I feel fearful right now, I will accept that —that part of me feels scared right now but I won’t let this fear paralyze me. Acknowledging fear allows us to keep on going toward our goals.” — Keren Tsuk
“Your triggers are your own. I often get triggered when someone says something or does something. I am practicing recognizing those emotional triggers and then identifying those questions. I ask – what emotions do come up? Anger? Sadness? Rage? Fear? What’s the earliest childhood memory I’ve of feeling this way? I take responsibility for my triggers. Someone else in the same situation could be perfectly fine. The trigger is a messenger to me that I still have to heal the older part of myself. A triggered state is access to the old beliefs. “
“A lot of people don’t really acknowledge their thoughts, or as thousands of people have said to me over the years that I never thought to question my thoughts before. I can’t tell you how many people have said, oh, I never thought to question or challenge one of my negative or fear-based thoughts. So what do we do? We readily accept them. Oh, a thought comes into the mind that tells us we’re not good enough and that we’re never going to be successful. That we’re not lovable, that we’re never going to achieve our goals. And what do we do? We accept them as true, without challenging them.”— Ora Nadrich
“The unknown can be frightening to people. Sitting quietly and just being with oneself can be frightening to people. You know, what I ask them is what are you most afraid of? What is it you think you’re afraid that you will come to know about yourself? You might be very pleasantly surprised that there’s that great quote – ‘There’s nothing to fear but fear itself’. And when you get on the other side of fear, you realize there’s less and less to be afraid of. — Ora Nadrich
