Managing fear so that it does not seize our life is of paramount importance because if we don’t, it takes over, and we can no longer move smoothly along the river of life. Fear will incapacitate us if we allow it to do so.
First, I acknowledge the fear. Then I experience/embrace the fear, allowing it to dissipate. In many cases, it dissipates completely in a moment or two just by acknowledging and experiencing the feeling. This can take a moment or two or several minutes, depending on the level of fear. If it is a deep-seated feeling, it may not completely dissipate at first, which is okay; in this case, move on to the next step.
The next step in the process is to embrace love – embrace the feeling of love. Allow the feeling of love to permeate your entire being.
After you are comfortable with this method, you will be able to move directly from fear to love at times. As soon as you notice that you are being fearful, bring forth the feeling of love. If you find it difficult to bring forth the feeling of love easily, you can think about someone or something you love to get the feeling.
