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!

Bucket List
I awoke in the wee hours this morning, from a dream about my parents. Both passed in the last few years; my dad in 2008 and my mom in 2010. They were the dearest people in my life; teachers, guides, providers, cheerleaders and guardians of my heart and soul. Although I know that they are safe and so

Living in Your God-ness
There are some people who come into our lives at a point in time when we are entering a new way of being. They plant seeds and are not necessarily a regular part of our days. Kind of like music in the background that puts a smile on your face when you hear it. Such has been the case with my friend

Avoiding Mental Traffic Jams
  This morning, while in session with a therapy client, I was speaking about the importance of mindfulness in maintaining structure and functionality in our lives. There are some days during which a running dialogue is taking place in my head, between .....well ... me and me. I will say, "Ok
