EMOTIONAL MONDAY: 3 FAST TECHNIQUES TO BE STRONGER THAN YOUR FEARS
Healing and growing are like peeling an onion: the deeper you go, the more you’ll cry. So let not this process dismantle you, and just now, surrender the need to understand.
Hands up if – whenever something beautiful, loving, and unexpectedly good happens to you, you instantly feel like like you’ll lose it, or have it taken away.
That is FEAR, beloved, and I am facing it these days, too! Now you can see why I thought of sharing 3 FAST techniques that help us stay strong and centred in the face of deep-seated fears and hurtful thoughts 🙂
1) First Generation Thoughts: this is when you walk down the street, in your little bubble of fear, and start noticing things – CAR, BINS, FENCE, STREET, STOPLIGHT. These are all First Generation Thoughts.
Then you think: EXPENSIVE CAR, I’LL NEVER AFFORD IT; GORGEOUS HOUSE, MINE IS NOT AS GOOD, I MUST BE LESS THAN, HMM, PEOPLE DON’T LIKE MY TASTE, NOBODY LOVES ME. These are all Second Generation Thoughts. When you get to Second Generation Thoughts, it means you’ve started inflicted judgement, and therefore created suffering. So we pause, we breathe, and we GO BACK TO First Generation Thoughts. We train our mind like this everyday. Peace restored!
2) Remember Your Divine Nature: and know that you’ve got God, or Life, or the Universe by your side. When you are facing your lover, fearing you’re not worth loving or fighting for, when you are vulnerably showcasing yourself in front of an employer, when you have to argue your case and take a stand for yourself, remember you are nothing but Precious Light; the Greatest Miracle in the World reminds us how:
‘…beginning with that single sperm from your father’s four hundred million, through the hundreds of genes in each of the chromosomes from your mother and father, I could have created three hundred thousand billion humans, each different from the other.
But who did I bring forth?
You! One of a kind. Rarest of the rare. A priceless treasure, possessed of qualities in mind and speech and movement and appearance and actions as no other who has ever lived, lives, or shall live.
Be yourself. Show your rarity to the world and they will shower you with gold.’ – Og Mandino
3) Listen to some radically soul jubilating songs! Because every now and then it all gets a bit too much, and all you’ve gotta do is still your mind 🙂 May I suggest this for the heavy hearted, this for the love birds out there, and this for those of you in need of some feel-good energy 🙂
