In my coaching sessions I am asked frequently about releasing fears. Ten years ago when I was I was getting certified in Spiritual Counseling I was asked, “What is one of your fears?” For me, it has always been rats. The challenge was to take action to address it and overcome the fear. I looked at pictures of rats but I could still feel the fear. Several weeks later I decided to go to a pet store.
At first I sat with the rat while it was still caged. It gave me the creeps! I wanted to get through my feelings so I connected to it by looking at it and talking to it. Then I had them take the rat out of the cage. I literally jumped back but then I reached out and touched it. I was still uncomfortable. After a while though, I was able to hold the rat. I felt such a sense of accomplishment. It took physical energy to take that step. What it gave back was a sense of freedom and power. I did not realize how that fear was holding me back in other areas of my life. Taking that action left me with an inner knowing that I was fully empowered over all the areas of my life.
You know what you are fearful of – it is time to empower yourself by releasing it! If you want help, give me a call for a Shine On! Coaching Session.
