Fear is pervasive in today’s society, fear is generated on every corner! The media, friends, family, neighbors, social media, governments, and our minds. This is the best way to release fear.
We all have fears, e.g. Spiders, snakes, heights, airplanes, weather, relationships, death & dying, abandonment, getting old, body image challenges, Sexuality, not being good enough, what will people think, and the list goes on and on!
We are used to living in a paralyzed fear 24 hrs. per day, we go to sleep in fear and wake up in fear, sad state of affairs. Our minds and bodies get stuck in that habitual rut, of constant same patterns, of work & family responsibilities.
The body holds our emotions in our cells, fascia, and muscles. It’s these memories and experiences that we have of the past and present that are negative that create stress in the body. As the mind is stressed, the body responds to the stress of the mind and then it creates the tension and pockets of illness. The only way to remove it out of the body is through the body.
Let go and surrender!!!
Whether that be in a warm embrace, the practice of yoga, being in nature, a massage, a warm cup of tea, coffee, or a laugh with a friend.
Can you find these areas in your body and what arises within and let them go?
Letting go and surrendering is a choice! Resistance is a choice, and to hold on to the fear is a choice. We forget how many choices we have in life and we fall back into thinking that we are just subject to the current and we are just floating around without a paddle. This is not the truth!!!
If you think about your life, there is no need to hold on to your fears and to hold onto anything is going to be a fight for the long run.
Go for a run, go work out, go relax, walk in nature, go meditate, go and get to know a stranger, go share some random acts of love & kindness, go make friends with yourself, go push the boundaries of fear, and stair it in the eye, and say you are not afraid,
Above all go get a massage, so you can get to know your energies, make peace with your emotions and release this fear on all levels, your body has this great mysterious capability to heal and be healed in many wondrous ways that we are just discovering. A great massage for this is the Heartworks Lomi Lomi – to help reconnect with your heart and mind.
