Does Fear Rule Your Life?

Does Fear Rule Your Life?

Sure, sometimes we know it is there, and it is no surprise. Far too often we don't see its full effects. Blinded by the full force of it and how it impacts every part of our life.

I bet if I asked this question to anyone, they would say NO! So I ask, does fear rule your life? Before you answer it, consider the following points.

Fear is present in almost every part of life and our conscious and unconscious thoughts. It shows up unannounced. It is often hidden and sneaky to not appear in plain sight.

Even though you think you’re in control, fear often tricks you into thinking that way. It does not want you to give it a second thought. Just as you might be wondering if this is true, that’s another hidden feature which operates unconsciously in your thoughts. It is quite clever in how it operates in life without us seeing that it is there.

Sure, sometimes we know it is there, and it is no surprise. Far too often we don’t see its full effects. Blinded by the full force of it and how it impacts every part of our life. We may not want to hear this, but as I have found in my own life, it is the truth.

Joy Harjo has a poem she wrote called The Fear Poem. In it, she writes, “oh you have choked me, but I gave you the leash.” It is clear in what she says that even though we want fear out of our lives, we give it the leash. We are the ones that invite it in and allow it to take up residence in our mind and body.

Yes, I realize that fear is a fundamental part of the human experience because it is there for a reason. It can often help us and protect us and keep us out of danger. When the threat is over, we no longer need its presence at that moment. Unfortunately, as humans, the presence of fear is tied to the emotion of the experience. It becomes locked into our mind and body.

If we don’t actively work to release fear from both our mind and our body, it begins to take up valuable energy that we need to function, causing a disruption. The more it continues, the more it grows and cements itself in as if it is our foundation in life.

Learning to release fear from deep within not only our mind but our body, is the way we find balance and grounding once again in our life. It is where we begin to see a deeper meaning in our lives where we harness the experience and gain the lesson that we need to learn.

If we think that fear does not significantly impact our lives, we are only fooling ourselves. If we acknowledge its presence in our lives and learn to work with it, we will be so much further ahead. Fear is not about allowing it to pull the wool over our eyes, but seeing it for what it is. The more we know about it, the more we can go in and release it from the mind and the body.
