This video is very funny. I had to laugh out loud because yes: often times we take ourselves far too seriously. Well, I can speak for myself:)
When we feel fear, we tend to run away or freeze. This way we build up resistance and we don’t see the chance to grow through this particular experience. We feel scared and want this emotion to go away – and this makes it even worse. We concentrate on what we don’t want.
When we feel scared and aren’t in real danger, this is the moment to stop and take a look inside. Feel your fear and do it anyway, because on the other side of your fear is freedom. Take it easy. Celebrate your fear. Acknowledge it. Be curious. It is just an emotion, again: energy moving through your body.
There is always a lesson to learn. Ask yourself: what is the reason I feel this way? What are my thoughts about this situation? Is it true? What is the worst thing that could happen here? How do I want to feel instead?
Next time you feel fear try to relax your body and your focus on these negative and fearful thoughts. Breathe slowly and deeply! Meditation can help you to get clear about your thought patterns, limiting beliefs and can help you to relax your body and your focus.
