Last week I detoured into fear.
The week started out great. Things were flowing. I was inspired, taking action, and creating positive results.
And then Thursday rolled around.
It started off OK. I did my usual morning routine and then moved on to my to do list. By 9 am I had finished everything I needed to do for the rest of the week.
You’d think I’d be happy with, basically, two extra days off.
Woo Hoo! Right?
Wrong! Instead, my old limiting belief of “it takes hard work to make money and if you’re not working you won’t make money” crept up and I detoured into fear.
I didn’t even realize what was happening at first. My stomach felt a little fluttery. I felt pressure behind my eyes as though I needed to cry.
I started doubting myself and second guessing everything. Before I knew it, the downward fear spiral started picking up speed.
Have you ever done that? Everything’s going well and then, BAM, out of nowhere you detour into fear.
The good news is that it’s totally normal.
Living your purpose means stepping out of your comfort zone. It means growing from who you are into who you are meant to be.
And that can be pretty scary at times.
Your fears, doubts, and limiting beliefs crop back up and when they do, you have a choice:
You can choose fear.
You can choose to recognize that those old fears, doubts, and limiting beliefs are just an indication of where you need to grow.
So, what can you do to get out of fear?
First, forgive yourself for having the fearful thoughts. Then, release the fearful thoughts and release the feelings and be willing to see things differently.
Each time you notice a fearful thought, say “I forgive myself for this thought. I release this thought. I am willing to see this differently.”
Most likely, you’ll have to repeat this statement over and over and over (I definitely did!). But if you do it each and every time you notice a fearful thought, you’ll soon start to experience a shift.
Next, give thanks. Nothing will shift you from fear to abundance faster than gratitude!
Here’s what I like to say to get into a feeling of gratitude and abundance, “Thank you for all that I have received, all that I am receiving, and all that I will receive.”
Wishing you love and abundance,
