How many of us have to remember to release your earlobes and inside corners of your eyes during meditation or shavasana? I do!
What is that? Fear, that’s what!
Maybe you were startled by that sound at the door and you forgot to drop your shoulders two nights ago!
Are they still up?
If you scan your body right now, where are you breathing from?
Your throat, chest, belly your diaphragm?
Does it hurt to turn your neck in any direction or if you sit straight, for too long, does it hurt between your shoulder blades or in your low back?
Yeah, why is that?
Fear! That’s why.
You got tense over some bullshit or some real shit and you forgot for a minute, that you have the manual.
You forgot that it’s as easy as deciding to let it go.
It’s as easy as saying:
“Go away fear. I don’t need you anymore.”
Like any unwanted guest, that at one point was invited in, catered to and doted on, now needs to take itself somewhere else, somewhere where is needed.
To this prevalent guest, I say:
Go away fear. I see you. And we don’t need you anymore.
Fear moved in, like a homeless hitchhiker but in the form of tension.
Go away fear.
We’re not living in caves and saber tooths have long since expired.
Loud noises don’t mean the Gods are angry and getting pulled over for a bad headlight does not mean you’re going to starve along with the rest of the village.
Go away fear. We don’t need you.
We don’t need you sticking your nose in our bedrooms, refrigerators, meetings or choice in décor or gas grade.
Just go away.
You’re not allowed to lie on the couch and hold the remote.
You’ve over stayed your welcome, knowing all along, how uncomfortable it has been to host you.
You were a guest and now it is time for you to pack your baggage and leave.
Go away fear.
We don’t need you here anymore.
We have this under control. We remembered that everything we need is inside of us. You see fear; we remembered that intuition is the first and most reliable form of thinking. We’ve forgiven ourselves and we don’t really believe that mistakes means we’re not good enough anymore.
We remembered how to love ourselves and we now call that
So we don’t need you fear, you’re not welcome here.
I’m afraid I’m going to have to ask you to clean up your workstation.
Go away. Cause got we this.
