It’s an error to think that becoming aware of our fears—of turning towards them and facing them in the light—will give them more power. Many of us, in fact, mistakenly believe that if we avoid looking at them, they will not overtake us. So we turn a blind eye, hoping to avoid something unpleasant.
In truth, it’s not awareness of our fears that causes us problems, but our fearful attitude about even looking at them. By not facing our fears, we keep fighting the parts of ourselves that happen to be in fear, right now. We cramp up our whole being—including our bodies—bracing against our feelings of fear. But if we’ll bring our fears into the fresh air of our conscious awareness, they will lose their terrible roar.
In this collection of insights from the Pathwork Guide about facing our fears, fear is illuminated from many perspectives. And once we start to see our fears for what they truly are, we can begin to watch them slip away.
