Welcome to this week’s self-care guidance for 11th – 17th November 2019.
The only person who can pull me down is myself, and I’m not going to let myself pull me down anymore.”– C. JoyBell
Do you know if you’ve set yourself an insurmountable challenge?
Do you know when or how you’re holding yourself back?
The mind is an interesting thing. It can create plans to move us forward and paradoxically, create behind-the-scenes blocks to making those plans happen!
When we make plans, we move into a trusting space, believing in our capabilities to learn and grown and move our lives forward.
Hidden in the background however, fear is often lurking. We often believe that if we make our plans and hope and optimism bigger than our fears, we will be successful.
But what if our biggest fear, is actually the fear of success?
Fear thrives in the dark. When we don’t look at it or examine it, it lurks beneath the surface of the mind, in our heart or in our stomach. It’s only when we shine a light on it, that it begins to get smaller and smaller.
Shining a light on fear won’t always make it disappear. But it will make it small enough to make it insignificant enough for you to thrive.
In Aromatic Kinesiology, Jasmine essential oil is used to help us move from fearful to trusting. It helps us move to the stillness within so we can hear the quiet answers below the pounding fear. Sometimes there is a hidden benefit to our fears, to make sure we stay safe. Sometimes fear is operating from an old survival story that no longer serves us.
To help move beyond fear, here is a wonderful Blossoming Heart Affirmation:
“I trust myself, expect the best and bless the present.”
This week’s stress management technique is to dance! Whether it’s going to a dance or Zumba class, or dancing around your kitchen, dancing is a wonderful and fun way to release tension from the body and mind!
