Yes, that tricky little beast. It comes up when we least expect it. It can be triggered by looking at our bank account, an unexpected bill arriving in the mailbox, even looking at social media comparing ourselves to what ‘everyone else’ and their success.
And believe me, I get it.
I have been on a journey to live without fear for many years. I’ve done all sorts of things that have terrified the heck out of me (diving with sharks without a cage anyone?) and been literally paralysed by fear at times.
But you know what, I always got through. Even from the darkest depths of fear, I climbed out the other side. E.v.e.r.y. t.i.m.e.
And how? What tools did I use to turn the seemingly ‘unturnable’ into courage?
And then turn the courage into excitement? And then the excitement into joy, peace, happiness and abundance?
There are three things I turn to when fear creeps up on me. And these three things NEVER fail me.
Here they are;
3. Take inspired action
Let’s take a look at #1 – TRUST
When you really understand this, it is a LIFE CHANGER. The Universe truly is looking out for you. It’s not necessarily ‘testing’ you, but know that every experience you go through is an opportunity.
It’s an opportunity for learning, for growth and sometimes a big slap in the face showing you what you will not stand for every again.
I learnt to trust that the Universe is looking out for my highest good when I the ‘tap turned off’ with money back in October last year (the ‘breakdown moment’).
I have learned that the Universe was essentially ‘saving’ me from the course I was on – the way I was running my business and finances was metaphorically about to drive off a cliff. I have trust that the Universe was giving me a big warning sign to make change.
That change in my business has seen me double my monthly income.
That trust has allowed me to tap into my intuition and spot the early warning signs of when something does not serve me. That trust gives me peace in knowing that I am not going this journey alone. That the Universe does really have my back.
Gabby Bernstein says in the book of the same name (The Universe Has Got Your Back), that when FEAR comes up it is;
“…a sign that you are relying on your own strength.”
It is the warning sign to remind you that you are not trusting in the Universe to provide for you.
Know there is always support for you – whether it’s your family, friends, co-workers, a coach or simply the Universe. Have trust that things ALWAYS work out. That where you are now is temporary and the quicker you stop relying on your own strength, the faster you can move out of fear mode.
Know you don’t need to go it alone in business. You don’t have to be in fear mode.
You CAN learn how to turn that fear around immediately and unblock the flow of receiving (money, love, abundance…anything you desire).
And this is a huge area I teach my clients. You deserve to live a life without fear and a life full of abundance.
We were all meant for bigger things. And many of us are fearful of how BIG that could be.
You don’t have to go it alone. Pop on a call and chat to me about mastering your FEAR once and for all.
Sending you love and abundance,
