This is the time to go from fear to fierce. This is the time to move beyond all lies, darkness, fears, and deceptions and reclaim our right to freedom, to peace, to love, and to joy. ~ Luminita D. Saviuc
I do not engage in the collective fear as I live a hermit life. I have not, for a long time, been watching the news for any length of time and I am happy with the short term social distancing, speaking on the phone to friends and family often.
I keep myself grounded and I do not take on other people’s fears. That does not mean I do not feel it or have it in my life but I am not a victim and it does not overtake my life. When it does creep in it fills my soul and my being. It feels like it is a dark cloak ready to encompass me at any moment.
It can seemingly come from nowhere or it can be triggered like a switch. It is like a being that sits on my shoulder and puts his hands over my eyes so I can not see opportunities or goodness, it puts its hands over my ears so I can not listen to help and my soul whispering. And lastly, it puts its hands over my mouth so I can not speak my truth. It can feel so powerful but really it is my mind that makes it more empowered until I shift it and only then can I return to normal.
Going From Fear to Fierce
I have learned how to deal with fear in a way it does not rule my life and I would love to support you and teach you how to overcome it when it creeps into your being.
These tools will allow you to free yourself from the time and energy it consumes.
Fear is natural but it is the way you respond to it that will determine how powerful it becomes. How would you feel if you could put your energy into things that feed your soul? To start planning your living your purpose?
3 Powerful Ways to Go From Fear to Fierce
Here are 3 effective, tried, and tested ways that you can implement right now to go from fear to fierce, especially when fear suddenly creeps up on you or if you are triggered.
If you are in the throes of fear then stop what you are doing right now and think – what do I need to do right now? Fear is usually borrowed from the future and how can we fear what we do not know? Stopping and bringing yourself back to the present will help enormously. Right now you are unable to control what is going to happen but you can control what you are doing right at the moment.
The choice is yours – fear or freedom?
We often take on other people’s emotions and thoughts without even knowing it especially if we talk non stop about the virus, what is happening right now and this can accentuate the feelings of fear. We must remember that also when people are telling you stuff it is steeped in their thoughts, beliefs, and stories and their own interpretation of what is going on.
Who wants to take that on? This is especially true if you have been triggered.
Fear is sprouting from a lack of control over our lives. We are being controlled not only by institutions we may or may not agree with but also by our minds. The instability and uncertainty are keeping the fear alive. So many people are worried about their future, their financial situation, relationships, and about if and when life will get back to normal.
Now that we are in a collective consciousness of fear, going from fear to fierce may seem impossible. Some of this fear is being farmed and handed out like a pill to take from all different angles. We pop it in as we do not know what else to do.
Fear keeps us stuck, it keeps us small but it keeps us conformed. We are now seeing people rebelling as the fear is taking hold even stronger, which then breeds resentment and anger from others and it goes around in circles and repeats.
Aside from the fear of the actual virus itself which is a complete unknown and the more we try to understand it, the more we lack information. There are so many questions that are going unanswered about the spread, the ending, and how to deal with it.
Change cultivates fear and the lack of trust and knowing that all is going to be okay.
This is all normal! It would surely be great to learn how to cope with it so it does not consume you. So you can invite it to the table and acknowledge it is there instead of distracting from it?
Fear is not a welcome emotion and so we try to distract ourselves or bury it but fear is normal. We can disempower it though and bring it to the table to acknowledge it is part of us. Then when it arises it will not feel so overwhelming.
These may seem such simple tools but they are incredibly powerful.
Remember: A Life Beyond Fear is a Life Lived in Freedom!
