It’s a really interesting thing, this thing we call FEAR. Most people assume it’s an across the board thing – either you’re afraid or you aren’t. Either you go for it or you don’t.
In my experience, fear is something else – something very big!
Years ago, even though my intuition said it was time to make the leap into intuitive work full-time, my fear of not being able to support my family prevented me from making that jump for several years!
When fear shows up it usually runs the show, if we let it.
Fear tells you, you can only make so much money doing this job.
Fear tells you, you can’t get pregnant at this age because no one can.
Fear tells you, you can’t let people know about your REAL likes and dislikes because they’ll make fun of you.
Fear, although it’s not fun to experience, is actually a great protector. It keeps you in line, ensuring that you don’t make mistakes, or get hurt, or disappointed.
If you didn’t have the fear, you might try making more money or you may go for it with the pregnancy… but you are protected since your fear ensured that you never tried.
But what is fear?
Fear contains the directions that we follow when we run headlong into something else: a lack of belief in ourselves.
If I had believed in myself, there would have been no need for fear when I was considering doing intuitive work full-time. I would have just done it.
It took me a while to realize that the fears I have felt in my life were actually protectors – trying to stop me from having bad experiences within. And even sometimes today, I forget that that’s what fear really is – and I accidentally (but usually temporarily) allow fear to be my guide.
When you feel fear, stop for a moment and look at yourself. Is there some place where you’re not believing in your awesomeness, your beauty, your innate intelligence?
I bet there is! And once you find it, you’re now free to make any decision you want around it.
And that’s what we all want, isn’t it? Freedom to make our best choices.
Love and Light,
