During a moment of vulnerability and openness, fear has a way of sneaking from the darkest corners of our psyche and ruin moments of pure bliss, connectivity, and sharing. Resistance is futile, as Carl Jung once stated “What you resist not only persists, but will grow in size.” What’s left? Surrender and embrace.
By embracing your fear with self love and compassion, you take away its power. It melts away, completely dissolves (sometimes with the help of some tears). By taking its power, you become empowered. Fear is transformed into an affirmation, an actualization of your deepest aspiration. Fear is simply a transition, an energy in motion. Fear is not the truth.
