Yes, our fear has a voice, and it can be quite scary at times. It speaks to us when we are at our most vulnerable and convinces us that we need to be terribly worried when often there is no real need to be.
Now, I’m not saying that our fears are always a bad thing. They’re not. Sometimes they’re an indicator that we need to look more closely at something, or even that there is some lesson for us to learn. And of course they come from somewhere – there is a source of our fears that needs to be considered and dealt with in the best way we can.
But fear is defined as “a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real or imagined; the feeling or condition of being afraid.” And heeding this voice and giving in to it too easily can actually make it grow and cause us to attract the very thing we are trying so hard to protect ourselves from. We can actually inadvertently manifest our biggest fears by focusing our energy on the wrong thing – the very thing we don’t want.
This is probably the biggest single reason I can think of to face our fears and clear them away, no matter how difficult it may seem to do that. Because the truth is that the alternative of NOT dealing with them is what can actually create the outcome we don’t desire in our life.
At the very least, the most important thing is to not ignore our fears and let them grow, but to look more closely at them to see what it is they have to tell us – what message are they trying to send us. And I guarantee you; there is ALWAYS a message there, whether or not we want to hear it.
