I stumbled upon this picture the other day and after studying it for a few minutes, my mind started wandering.
I pictured myself standing in front of it, chalk in hand, writing down my latest fear.
As I stepped back and waited a few minutes, the words started to slowly fade until I couldn’t see them anymore. Were they really gone - gone forever?
I stood there for a few more minutes watching the wall and they never reappeared.
I took a short walk and came back - still not there!
What if I could scribble my fears on the wall every day and slowly watch them disappear?
My mind started to wander, thinking of the possibilities.
Then it hit me – we DO have a wall and it is called GOD!
I AM supposed to hand over all my fears, worries, concerns and doubts to him every day.
I AM supposed to let go and walk in faith that my fears will be erased.
So why is that so difficult?
Maybe it's because I want to actually see the proof; actually watch them disappear. It solidifies the process and makes it real.
Today, I promised myself that I would work on the process of trusting, of letting go, of walking away without looking back for proof.
To help myself ease the process of letting go and trusting GOD, I have written a tapping script that you may find useful as well.
If you are new to this blog and unfamiliar with the tapping process, please see the "introduction to tapping" link at the top of this page. It will provide you with everything you need to know!
As always, please change the words to fit your current situation
Karate chop point:
"Even though I have this fear, I love and accept myself anyway”
"Even though I’m scared, I accept this feeling and everything it means to me”
"Even though I have a hard time letting go, I love who I am anyway”
