I have said I have overcome fear, but I realize that is not quite true. Instead, I have come to face my fears, understand my fears, and overcome my fears when it makes sense to do so. To go to the places that scare you, within yourself, and to shine the light on those dark places, can allow us to see what is there and why. Ask the thing you find the sacred questions of, “Why are you here?” over and over, surrendering with love and understanding, non judgmentally, to understand it. Then ask, “How can I heal you?” over and over, surrendering to whatever comes up, to understand how to care for that part of yourself, heal it, and create a new and possibly beautiful understanding between you and what you find.
