Remember my teeter-totter analogy for health and dis-ease: when you are happy and healthy, you’re able to balance yourself over the pivot of the teeter-totter. Despite the stressors that plop down on either end of your teeter-totter you are able to adapt and remain balanced. You’re bright. BRAVE. You’re beautifully balanced. Yet life inevitably plops sh*t on your teeter-totter that throws you off balance – life stresses your system.
For two years fear was the big THUD on the end of my teeter-totter. Fear was the stressor throwing me off balance, keeping me stuck in dis-ease. I was more fearFULL than soulFULL. I worried more about what other’s thought than how I felt.
Intellect over intuition.
External validation over internal awareness.
I didn’t know how to overcome (rise above) my paralyzing fear, but a friend told me about Gabby Bernstein, New York Times Bestselling Author and spiritual teacher. Intrigued, I bought her book May Cause Miracles: A 40-Day Guidebook of Subtle Shifts for Radical Change and Unlimited Happiness. As I read and journaled I realized I’d built a brick wall of fear to protect me from my heart’s desire. This wall gave me a false sense of protection, yet kept me overwhelmed by fear and stuck in dis-ease.
Checkout issue 07 and see how I removed that wall of fear brick by brick.
You can too!
I’d love to know…
When paralyzed by fear, how do you rise above it?
