When fear arrives it hides security, safety and stability. What to do? Determine the antidotes.
These questions might help: •What will give me safety in this moment? •How can I experience security right now? •What is the first step I can do to meet my needs for stability? And now engage those answers by putting them into action aka do them!
And then…love yourself up, your oldest and dearest friend. Put your arms around yourself and give yourself a big long hug… That hug will often squeeze the fear right out of you.
One antidote is to simply let the breath guide us into stability. Sit like a strong mountain inhaling and exhaling slowly for five minutes.
Over time as you focus and cultivate your practice increase the breathwork from five minutes once a day to five minutes three times a day.
As you cultivate this skill your mind and body will engage in calmness and relaxation. It is truly common to feel the stability of a mountain as you continue to practice. Your thoughts will slow down and retire to the back plateau of your mind.
