Erasing fears

from Kissing Fish Facebook page

 

FEAR= False Evidence Appearing Real

FEAR= Forgetting Everything (is) All Right (Alright)

When I saw this image on Facebook, I was delighted to contemplate the idea of putting my fears right out there in front of me and then wiping them away. Fears love lurking in the darkness and sneaking out and snagging us, dragging us under. When we name them and claim them, shine the light on them, often they slink away, since we are no longer giving them power over us.

Imagine have a wall on which you can scrawl your deepest fears and have others witness them, and likely acknowledge that they have the same fears. It might make you feel less alone, more in alignment with those who share the planet with you.

So that I practice what I preach, I will offer my most profound fears….

* being incapacitated and needing to rely on others

* stepping on someone else’s toes

* losing loved ones (even though I don’t fear death)

* not having enough money to pay bills

* feeling like I can never do enough or be enough

* being controlled by someone else

*anger…mine and that of others

* letting people down

* letting myself down

* not keeping commitments

* being judged as being unkind or unloving

* settling for less than what I want in any aspect in my life

*missing out on a committed relationship

* losing my memory (or marbles, as my mother used to say)

* not being all that the Divine would have me be

Break out the eraser!

Turn Your Mess Into Your Message
Wise people are everywhere. Today I met a wise woman while waiting to see my cardiologist. She was the receptionist who greeted me from behind her sliding glass (slid open, of course) window.  When she asked how I was doing since my last visit and I gave her an update, she responded:  "You are tur

Invulnerable and Invincible?
  Yesterday, in the midst of a radio interview with Kerri Kannan,  I was asked a question about vulnerability. It is a topic that has become as familiar as the fingers typing these words. I was awakened to it when viewing a TEDTalk by Brene' Brown a year or so ago. It doesn't come easily to

The Now What Club
This morning, I joined two dear friends for brunch at Mal's Diner in Skippack, PA.  After a heart-healthy workout in cardiac rehab, I had a heart- happy  meal of egg whites, spinach (no cheese), fresh fruit instead of home fries and dry (no butter) whole grain toast. Yvonne Kaye has been my mentor

Enjoy Every Moment
Feeling emotionally raw at the moment, having just returned from a day of honoring my friend Delane Lipka. I had written about another extraordinary day in a previous Beliefnet article called In the Garden of Eden that described a gathering of kindred spirits that had been organized by Delane. For d

Cardia-versary
This morning marks 3 months since I experienced the kind of pain that cracks you open and has you revealing the emotional viscera that had long lay dormant. Literally at this moment, I was captured by the symptoms of a heart attack- searing heart burn pain, jaw tightness and wringing wet sweats. I s
