Many say hate is the opposite of love though it is in fact FEAR!
What are you afraid of?
” Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast” Lewis Carroll ~ Alice in Wonderland
- How often do you find yourself thinking like Alice?
At some point in our lives we all, unwittingly sabotage ourselves through fear based thinking.
We dash our future hopes based on past experiences without any real evidence that what we fear will repeat itself.
Do you really want to stay at The Mad Hatter’s tea party or are you ready to live your life in the absence of fear?
Which of these fears are true for you?
- Fear of not being good enough
- Fear of not being loved
- Fear of rejection
- Fear of separation or loss of relationship
- Fear of failure
- Fear of ill health
- Fear of being controlled by another
- Fear of success
What has been the price you have paid or are paying now based on fear of the past repeating itself?
Be aware that some fear based core beliefs come from our conditioning whilst growing up.
There is no blame here on our caregivers, we were very young when we formed our core beliefs and at the time, these beliefs seemed to be appropriate for us.
Core beliefs may be formed based on the following conditions:
- Fear associated with rejection/not being lovable, worthy or approved of
- Fear associated with not meeting expectations, being good enough, adequate, recognised
- Fear associated with criticism, judgement, being made wrong, being told off, being compared
- Fear associated with people giving you attention, unwanted attention, smothering, feeling singled out, harassed, embarrassed
There is no evidence at all except the story in your mind, that the negative aspects of your past will repeat themselves.
It’s a story that you may have been playing for way too long and when you play that story over and over your body hears that story and will respond with the fear, sadness, despair and the limitations that you place on your future.
The future is not limited, but your thinking may be…
It’s time to change the story!
If at this point you want to explore your limiting beliefs that may have created fear based thinking you can download for free Chapter 3 ‘Belief’s of my book Find YOU, Find LOVE
When you are able to review your past as a learning experience taking with you the knowledge and wisdom gained from challenges, setbacks, wrong choices and perceived mistakes, it’s possible to make your past work for you to your best advantage.
Your past will no longer keep you in fear, terrified, doubtful, limited, trapped or anxious about the future. You simply transform your beliefs about fear and begin to take risks based on what you know for sure, not like Alice based on the imaginings of a creative mind!
Being aware of your responses to real and imagined situations is part of the journey towards transformation.
A fear only has to be acknowledged to be transformed!
The primary cause of our unhappiness is never the situation but the thought about it –Eckhart Tolle
Stepping into the space of love in the absence of fear and trusting that you can and will overcome your your limiting beliefs is the first step to the road to recovery.
When we get into our heart’s and out of our head’s fear dissolves. We begin to feel rather than think!
