Facing Fear


To live a life of health, wealth, love and joy, you need to move past the enemy. Fear is a menacing force if you allow it to creep into your precious life. In my former career as a high school teacher, I recall using a short story where “Fear” was personified.

“Fear knocked at my door, rendering the hallway icy and bitter…Fear reached in holding my heart in it’s draconian grip, and I was paralyzed in its hideous embrace .”

The first defense against “Fear” is to breathe deeply and completely to release tension. Now with a calm rational mind, dig in deeper by finding a quiet place in your soul to reflect and ask this question, “What is the worst that could happen?”. Often the answer is something one can live with and move past. With the issue out in the open and the worst case scenario sitting before you, take several deep breaths and allow the stillness of your soul to carry away the worry and tension and shift your focus by placing the problem or issue in a case of loving energy.

Focus on relaxing, and breathe. Chase away the discomfort with continued intention on melting “Fear” and opening your soul, to the best case scenario. This is the image to expand, this is the focus of your coming moments, and days until the truth of your soulful prayer is realized.

In the moments of calm and fearless breathing you will find a journey of the heart. All roads lead to love.
