A Love Note from Your Fear
Please don’t be afraid.
While I want to get your attention through this feeling of fear, I do not want you to fear me. Please don’t run. I want you to see me fully. I want you to open your eyes and face me, in order for you to fully face your life.
I want you to know there is a safe space to rest when you need to, but that this cramped and narrow corridor of darkness is not meant to be lived in. It’s meant to be lived through. Because most of all,
I want you to be brave.
I want you to come closer and closer to me until, as you stare into my pool of darkness, you see clearly your strengths reflected back to you. I want you to move through me, diving to the depths where your pearls of wisdom await.
It will feel cold at first. You might think you can’t do it, it’s not worth it, it’s beyond uncomfortable – it hurts. Don’t get out, dear one. Don’t run. Don’t let these cold waters numb you, freezing you in place.
Keep moving. Allow these cold waters to wash over you and rush through you in a way that makes you feel renewed, strengthened, and invigorated.
Let these cold waters make you come ALIVE!!
