Who would I be without all this fear

I was talking to a close friend today who has hit another big road bump in life.
Challenges are not new to her, in fact, they have become her way of life and physical pain had set in once again.

As we chatted she said she needed God to give her a miracle, it was the only thing that she had left.  

I told her she had to let go, hand it over in faith. So what do I do, she asked. Do I have to say out loud "I'm letting go, you take over!" How do I summon help she asked, just HOW do I let go?

I reassured her that he had already heard her pleas, but she is blocking his answers because she can't stay quiet. She can't quiet her mind long enough to hear his divine answer because she is living in a state of fear.
"Who would I be without all this fear? " she asked. "That's all I've ever known!" 

She had to admit that her body was probably in the pain that it was because her adrenals were shot from constantly being in a fearful state.

I think we've all felt this way at some point our lives, but if we don't quiet the fear based monkey chatter in our heads, we can't hear our intuitive voice or answers from the divine. I like to compare this to being at a deafening concert. People try to talk, but can't hear a thing because the music is too loud.
God tries to talk, but we can't hear a darn thing because the chatter is too loud in our minds.

We want to stay in control, white knuckling the steering wheel of life, making sure we don't veer off course when in fact we need to go down a different path. An unfamiliar, unknown path  makes us feel uncomfortable and that's when panic sets in.

That is the exact time we should take a step back, take a deep breath and know that our lives are "recalculating", to keep us moving forward towards the destination that is meant to be.

So how do we let go, how do we shut off that fight or flight part of our brain? 

I have always found tapping a great resource for quieting my mind, calming my hypersensitive spirit so I can regroup and remove the negative feelings that are keeping me from moving forward with confidence and clarity. 

Here is a tapping script that may help you surrender....

If you have never tapped before, I suggest you learn the basics first. Familiarize yourself with the tapping points and how to tap here.

There are oodles of videos on You Tube as well.

Tap on the Karate Chop point and say:

Even though I don't know how to let go, I deeply and completely love and accept who I am anyway.  
Even though my body hurts from worrying so much, I appreciate all the messages my body is sending me. 
Even though I have no idea what lies ahead of me and I am scared, I love and accept myself anyway

Now start your first round of tapping starting with the eyebrow point

EB: All this fear  
SE: I need a miracle right now  
UE: It's all I have left  
UN: I'm so scared  
CH: Time is running out  
CB: I don't know what to do  
UA: I need answers

Take a deep breath and continue

Take a deep breath and continue, but getting a little more detailed (replace my words with your words/fears)

UN: I know there has to be a better way  
CH: Better than praying for miracles  
CB: It would be nice to know  
UA: Someone else is in charge  
HD: It would take some pressure off me

Take a deep breath and continue

Take a deep breath and continue

CH: I am starting to relax  
CB: I am feeling calmer  
UA: My heart is feeling lighter
HD: I can breathe easier  
WR: I can wake up knowing everything will be just fine!

Take a deep breath and say PEACE

Continue to use this script over and over, replacing my words with words that resonate with you, that feels true for you. You must give yourself permission to feel your emotions and change the words to fit those emotions and mental pictures you hold inside of you.

Tapping does work if you use it consistently and persistently

Showering you with blessings of calmer days and arriving at the perfect destination!
Love, Cindy
