Everyone in business experiences FEAR at some point or another. Maybe even daily. The thoughts and voices in our heads are going non-stop with things like:
“Who am I to be doing this?”
“I don’t really have it all together.”
“There are so many others out there more qualified than I am who are doing this work.”
“This isn’t going to work out. I’ll be a failure.”
“It’s even scarier to imagine being a huge success! THEN what?”
And what is FEAR, anyway? It’s something we make up. It’s an illusion. It can be defined with this acronym: False Evidence Appearing Real. It’s that inner darkness that seems to appear out of nowhere, just like a tornado. Here’s the secret: Fear is always dissipated by LOVE. Think of yourself walking into a dark room, and turning on the light. The room is no longer dark. When you turn to thoughts or feelings to the energy vibration of LOVE, the fear vanishes.
Hanging out in FEAR is giving away ALL of your power. You are out of alignment with Source Energy when you’re in fear. When you move forward with clear intent, combined with courage, breakthroughs are inevitable. You’re back in your power again.
See if you can start noticing when you find yourself dwelling in fear about potential disasters, obstacles, or bad circumstances. You can deal with them if and when they occur. Every difficulty comes with a solution. Just by noticing that you’re getting into fear mode, you can take steps to dissipate it. Notice in your body what the FEAR feels like. Where does it live? Is it always felt in the same way, and in the same place? Is it FAMILIAR? Has this feeling been there for as long as you can remember? Many times the answer is YES. It’s stemming from the old childhood fears, and they have continued to grow and multiply.
It’s really helpful if you can take active steps to take the charge out of your childhood fears, because they are recreated every time you are in a situation that even remotely reminds you of the childhood incident.
EFT and Matrix Reimprinting are excellent tools for taking the negative charge out of past events.
When we spend time dwelling on expectations of disaster, hard times, and misfortune, we are more likely to create them. We are creating inner tornados in our energy field, and that is attracting more of the same. BE REALLY CURIOUS and study your fears.
Here are some questions that might help you get to the bottom of the FEAR OF SUCCESS (Often, this can also be a “fear of failure”; the 2 go hand in hand.)
- What are the DRAWBACKS of becoming successful?
- What feels UNSAFE about being successful?
- When I picture myself as successful, what am I afraid of?
- Why is it so much easier to stay just the way I am?
- What happened the last time I was successful?
The next time that pesky inner tornado shows up, turn on the light, the love. Pretend you have a “Heart Light”, just like E.T. (Energetically, you do.) Feel it and nurture it. Send rays of love from your heart to the whole Universe. I have a feeling you won’t remain in fear after you practice this simple exercise a few times.
Quick Tip: An Exercise for Removing Your Inner Tornados
Here’s one more exercise. Try this out for yourself! The next time you are encountering an inner tornado, simply pause, be curious about what’s happening, and take a deep breath. Say to yourself, “This too shall pass.” Tornados always do. Then focus on your heart chakra, and feel your heart expand with love as you dwell on a loving memory or thought. It can be the thought of holding your first kitten, or listening to the sound of a child’s laughter. Maybe you are remembering holding a newborn baby. As you allow your entire body to be flooded with the loving memory, the energy of love grows and expands outward. Feel the tornado dissipating. It’s like you just took the whirl out of it. You feel inner peace, instead. Love is all around you.
