Had a super interesting experience today.
I was worrying A LOT about something which might NEVER happen (yay!) …
It came into my head over lunch because of a random comment and I was instantly so worried, I literally felt quite sick.
It was quite interesting to witness, how that fear rose up in me.
To be fair, I had had a dream about this thing I dread some time ago. Somehow the comment at lunch brought all the fear back.
But I was aware it was just that – fear.
So after I had lunch, I went to sit at the Hare Krishna centre in Soho. It’s a temple in the middle of London’s West End and a great place when you need some peace.
However they were cleaning, so it wasn’t really the right vibe. Apparently I wasn’t going to get to just chant my fears away. I had to work through them.
I walked back out on to bustling Oxford Street, still feeling shaken and rattled, and thought more about my fear.
I knew it was fear. Pure and simple.
There is no reason to fear the thing I was fearing.
In fact, there is every reason to think that was I was fearing won’t happen.
And then I remembered.
Yes, good old surrender.
In that moment, I surrendered. I surrendered to the fear. I surrendered that if I have to experience this thing, well, then I have to.
I have been around the block enough times to know that this is the only way.
The only way out is through.
Om Namo Narayani.
I surrender to the Divine.
And in that moment, I felt the fear dissolve in quite an amazing way.
But still, I asked for a sign.
OK, please Universe, just give me a sign that this fear is just fear and I should let it go…
As I asked, my eyes fell upon this man’s t-shirt, in the pic.
I was so taken aback, I asked him if I could photograph it!
Try surrender, if you’re feeling the fear today…
