Here’s a Meditation to Help With Fear

Beliefnet published an audio meditation about overcoming fear by Dr. Bernie Siegel today. You might find your square acre of peace by listening. Here’s an excerpt:

Come out once again into the garden and the sunshine, and walk over to the pond and look at your image. Become one with that image and who you are. When you feel like ‘one,’ then turn and begin your journey toward that beautiful light that you see off in the distance, and know that on your way you’ll meet many guides who can help you. All you have to do is ask and reach out, and they will be there.

Yesterday I recognized that my day was filling up with a lot of anxiety-induced busy-ness. But I didn’t slow down or stop it. I even kicked aside the Pema Choron book I’d pulled from the shelf! In the end I accomplished a lot, but the mindlessness of my activity left me void. So last night I melted easily into this meditation. I found consolation and rest, but not before some big, body wracking sobs. (and boy did I feel good afterwards!) True to Siegel’s words, this meditation helped reveal my fears. I cried for the destruction I believe is imminent, for my inability to protect everyone I love, for our children who have made a premature leap from innocence to knowing. Then I went to sleep. Today we’re playing water fairies in the pool and having Tastee-Freeze and cake for dinner. Take that, you terrorists.>
