When you breathe in, inhale, deep ... down,
Come on now, try it. Really. Close your eyes.... and.... I-N-H-A-L-E
Now, what do you hear? Hush. Its so quite.
I did this little exercise this weekend and heard a little voice say:
To which I responded, "Oh... about what, hunny?" and it replied meekly, " the doctor's appointment on Monday".
"Really, don't be afraid. It is a good thing. It will help you find answers to your questions and this problem we have had for over a year." I reasoned with her.
She was silent.
Then, release. E-X-H-A-L-E....
The grip of fear released, shifted. blew out into the wind. An internal shift occurred. The control lifted. Meeting it face to face brought freedom.
I am no expert but I would like to believe this little exercise opened the door to experiencing one of the most joyous weekends out exploring my city, in the sunshine with my sweetheart.
And now without the little fearful voice I can hear hope flourishing, desire flickering, and creativity pulsing.
What do you hear, now?
How do you embrace your self and reason with the voices of fear?
