"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate."

You may recall Nelson Mandela's famous Inauguration speech in '94, where he used this profound quotation from Marianne Williamson's classic book, A Return to Love.

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.
There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

Stepping into magnificence

Shine brightly and step into your magnificence ... sounds easy enough, hey?

Nope ... for most people, its virtually impossible because we’re held back by our fears; fears so debilitating they literally stop us in our tracks and thus prevent us from succeeding! No matter how much we try convincing ourselves, some fears or obstacles are so tangible they actually prevent us from even trying!

How many people do you know who have amazing, if not brilliant ideas, but they never implement them because they’re too afraid? (I'm guilty of that!) That is awfully sad; sad for them and sad for us because many great ideas are simply lost to the ether never to be implemented.

So what does it take to step into your magnificence? Simply put, all it takes is to overcome your fears. This doesn't mean that you have to stare your fears in the face, and put the fear of God into you! No you don't need to step into the proverbial lion's den. There are some simple, yet profoundly effective ways of overcoming fears, any fears.

Resolving Fears ... any fears? Yes!

I just love the acronym for FEAR ... False Evidence Appearing Real. Fear is an emotional response to a 'perceived' threat most often to a future event such as the worsening of a situation or continuation of an unacceptable situation. And until we address and confront these fears, they control us. Fears cause undue suffering.

If you are doubting your ability to overcome your fears or are faced with obstacles preventing you from living a fabulous, successful life and you’ve tried everything else, it is time now to consider Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) or 'Energy Tapping' to confront these fears and knock ‘em on the head! IT IS time to clear away those burdens and ghosts of the past … poof GONE! Actually, its 'tap-tap' ... 'tap-tap' ... GONE :)

A fear could be any thing from a fear of flying, fear of heights, fear of snakes or spiders (any creepy crawlies), fear of water, fear of public speaking, fear of the dark, fear of success, fear of failure, fear of change, fear of death or dying, fear of resigning from your job to start a new business, fear of divorce or relationship break up, fear of abuse, fear of asking for an increase etc ... you get the point; if you're breathing, you'll have fears! This list is by no means comprehensive, there are hundreds of fears known to man.

Other obstacles or fears stem from limiting or negative beliefs, even negative self talk either our own or what we've taken on from listening to what other people repeatedly say. Much is inherited unintentionally or subconsciously from our caregivers (parents, grandparents, teachers, the church/religion, leaders/elders etc) whom we believe because we love and respect them.

Our social circles also influence our beliefs, as does our environment, particularly the media who sell ‘bad news’ because good news doesn't generate money. Either way, we buy into what we repeatedly hear and see. Essentially, this is the basis of indoctrination and propaganda, the fertile breeding ground for fears! (Remember: False evidence appearing real)

We all know the term, It's all in the mind ... how often do you hear yourself saying or thinking I've failed so many times, why bother trying again? Or I've lost my passion! … I've lost my creativity, my mojo … I've lost my determination, courage or nerve etc.

For some they’ve completely given up; feel hopeless and helpless. Some are SO depressed. Worst still, some loose their will to live and suicide seems the only likely option. How terribly, terribly sad! Fear or insurmountable obstacles are usually at the root of all these beliefs; yet every one of us has the right to shine - it is our God-given birthright!

Join me and let’s kick those fears, negative beliefs or obstacles into touch! Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) or 'Energy Tapping' can really assist in confronting and overcoming any fear gently and effortlessly, and most often in just one or two sessions.

Contact me at Energetix Healing to find out how EFT or 'Energy Tapping' can benefit you.

You have everything to gain - invest in yourself because you are worth it.


Namaste
