Greetings My Friends
Last time we discussed finding the blocks, facing the fear and doing it anyway and I asked you to consider
What is the worst thing that could happen if I stepped away from my fear?
How did you get on with that task?
By now you should be building a list of things which have prevented and continue to prevent you from achieving what you truly want in your life.
With that list on paper in front of you (or on your computer screen) you may be developing an idea of how your mind has attempted to protect you from things which at the time may have felt earth shattering but now with time distance and perspective are in reality much less traumatic.
Our Unconscious Mind Has One Main Purpose
That purpose is to retain what we have learned from our experiences and then to keep us from repeating mistakes.
Unfortunately it does not have any objectivity, only a subjective view based on how we felt at a particular time during the experience.
Consequently if something made us angry, upset, or deeply sad, then it will respond protectively which means that when we are presented with a potentially similar situation at another time then it immediately pushes us into fear mode.
How Do We Get Past The Fear?
We have to become our own heroes.
We need to stop looking outside of ourselves for a knight in shining armour to come riding over the hill on his huge white horse to rescue us.
Instead we have to learn to ride our own horse and don our own armour metaphorically.
Instead of hiding in a corner waiting for someone else to come and rescue us.
When we have blocks, which cannot easily be removed or accessed, we must take responsibility to seek out help from professionals who can assist us in our journey to health and happiness.
Sometimes the bravest and best thing we can do for ourselves is to admit that we need help to do this and to reach out and ask rather than sinking deeper into fear and depression.
The first step is the hardest.
After that it becomes much easier to accept guidance and help to rediscover the path to happiness and confidence.
Making the change is the most loving thing you can do for yourself.
