The emotional landscape keeps changing at speeds we have never known.
It’s been a whirlwind and we are all trying to deal with its impact on our neighborhoods, cities and globally.
Unprecedented times call out unusual behaviors.
I watched people fighting each other for supplies and then I watched others who shopped for those who couldn’t leave their homes.
I observed extreme generosity and extreme selfishness in the same day. Two opposite ends of the spectrum that.
I was reminded of what fear and the unknown can do to people and how important it is to understand how fear can serve us at the same time as it can limit us.
This past week I almost changed the advanced class for this year as I had chosen Fear DNA as this year’s topic in the beginning of this year — before the news of the virus had reached us. I wondered if it might be too much given the current circumstances.
Then I realized…these are exactly the times in which we take a significant event, have a reaction, then create thoughts and feelings that start to generate mindsets of fear.
With that in mind I am going to be offering our most appropriate advanced topic yet.
People frequently tell me they could do so much if they could get past their fears. Often, they can’t quite identify or explain them, they just know that their stomachs contract when they think of doing something bigger or different. As though there were a ‘do not enter’ sign on the door.
Sometimes those fears originated in prior generations and you take them on as though they were your own. Some of these events may have created appropriate fears for your ancestors where it was jump or die time. As they migrated down to you, they may no longer have been life threatening but might have felt that way.
Events like this current one in the news, that happen directly to you, can create a library of fear in you and this can become a pattern of gut-wrenching thoughts and emotions that can create your Fear DNA.
And then there is another possibility.
Might fear indeed be a clue to what wants to change in the system?
A gift for you?
Can fear in fact be a transformer?
Think of the times you have achieved something in spite of your fear.
How did you feel right after you achieved that?
You knew you had stretched and transformed. Everything around you looked and felt different.
That kind of fear that can turn to wonder when you finally experience your potential.
When you learn to look at fear through that lens, with an open heart, it has no option but to change.
Now you are able to turn challenges and fear into an opportunity to stretch, move, and evolve.
Fear wasn’t meant to halt you but rather to inform and guide you and ultimately to transform you.
At this special event in November, you will learn how to identify, acknowledge and transform your Fear DNA, understand the purpose it has served and the clues it provides. You will also learn how to use it to shape the life you want for your highest good.
Fear that once limited you may even become the friend it was always meant to be.
In the process of transformation, we often stand first in fear – until with an open heart – this becomes wonder.
Now it’s your turn.
