Exploring your fears through your memories may stir up your emotions. You may experience stages of denial, anger, blame and sadness. You may set up defenses to avoid the pain. But stay with it, identify with it–you are bigger than it is.
Here are a few steps to help you own, release and integrate your fear:
1. Identify it and understand it.
2. Own it fully–know it is yours. Do not come from a victim position.
3. Learn from it; know the deeper meaning of it. What higher soul
quality wants to come through for healing?
4. Connect with forgiveness, trust and love to complete the healing.
There is major learning here for you. Congratulate yourself for your willingness to undertake this journey. For most of us, our life story is to overcome and learn from life lessons and deep seated fears. And many people are so inspired by their learning and integration that they want to share it by writing a short memoir or life story.
“Fear of the pain blinds us to the goal of healing. Only by seeing our problems clearly and experiencing them can we do something about them.” — Bob Hoffman
