If you’re like me and sometimes worry about a challenge you’re facing, here are a few tools that help me through it. I usually emerge free of fear and ready to enjoy life–stress-free!
First, I get honest with myself that I’m a little rattled. (Quite often I try to deny how I’m really feeling by trying to “put on a good face”– even with myself!!)
Then I admit that fear has been in the driver’s seat of my mind and I invite a power bigger than my fear to take over my thinking. I often merely ask for help to see things differently.
Next, I choose to take the necessary actions to find peace of mind. This requires a commitment to my own happiness and serenity.
Finally, I apply growth tools to dissolve my worries so I can connect with wisdom and love. I persist in using tools such as a simple prayer, affirmation, or calling a healthy friend to share my concerns. Sometimes I use the app Insight Timer to help me relax and trust that all is well.
Insight Timer is great; you can select guided meditations by the amount of time you have, person, or topic. I just used the one by Tara Brach to calm myself about the next phase in my book-writing adventure: Doing publicity, another whole new challenge!
Here’s the link to the app: https://insighttimer.app.link/HQZbB2ezuF
Tara Brach’s 15-minute meditation helped me access the courage, inspiration, and peace of mind to move forward with my project. Her wonderful books and other products are at www.tarabrach.com
I know that honesty, power, choices, and tools like these can help you connect with the power of your true self—unfettered by fear, ego, and limitation. The sky’s the limit!
