Fear says, “I can’t be enough.” Love says, “I already am enough.” So what is fear? Fear is contraction, a comparison, a pulling away and closing off. Love, on the other hand, is expansive, an opening up, creating endless possibilities to surrounding circumstances. Love is vulnerability at its finest.
Well LOVE over FEAR - its easy written – its easy said – its easy to give someone this advice – choose love over fear…. BUT well what if this FEAR hits you – from a corner you didn’t even know it would be possible anymore? Yesterday I had a “moment” like this – an old wound got opened – without me even knowing that this wound still exists and still hurts – and well I let fear in. Fear of not being enough, fear of getting my heart broken, fear of being left, fear of getting hurt, fear of well FEAR.
I am lucky enough to have such a wonderful soul next to me – who helps me heal my wounds, who sits with me in the dark, until I can see my light, who embraces all my broken parts with loving compassion.
What can you do when fear knocks? First of all – come back to a normal breath – because fear is without breath. When we breathe deeply, we introduce expansion growth and possibility and we invite love into our bodies. Then come back to the present moment — because fear lives in the past (memories) and future (worries) - the more we learn how to stay present and what is going on around us, the more we are open to lifes unfolding as it actually is — whatever that might be. And then choose to TRUST – trusting that WE all are exactly where we are supposed to be. We all are still learning, still healing, still forgiving, still trying. Re-attuning to love is not about ignoring or denying fear - it is about peeling back the layers, breaking down the walls, melting the ice, and allowing a pure fullness of experience – we always have a choice!
When fear hits you – choose to love intentionally, extravagantly and unconditionally. Our broken world waits in darkness for the light. And that light is YOU <3 lets learn to embrace life in all its messy glory – and remember that LOVE is what WE ARE – FEAR is what we learned. <3
