DREAM BUILDER: WEEK 5
Week 4 - Befriending Your Fear
6. Nurturing Your Dream: Maintaining the Integrity of Your Field So Your Dream Can Grow
Your dream passes the tests, and you feel worthy of its coming true. But if you plant your dream in soil that has been choked out by weeds, then the dream can’t possibly grow. The weeds are fear. In the concrete world, you never get rid of weeds, do you? It’s the same with fear. Fear can choke out every good seed, if you let it. It’s impossible not to have fear – but we’ve got to learn to befriend it so we honor its presence but kick it out of the driver’s seat.
7. The Gap: Turning Your Fear Into a Stepping Stone
Now you’ve spent time visioning, creating your dream, paying attention to your longing and discontent, testing your dream, making a decision for your dream and building a sense of deserving, you may be in a space called the gap – the space between the life you’ve known and the life you are creating. There are 3 aspects of the gap (fear, a sense of lack, and lack of forgiveness) that can cause you to revert back to the gravitational pull of the familiar – your old life – and 3 practices can propel you forward. Everyone who experiences greatness experiences and manages fear. You will learn strategies and skills for deepening and developing your spiritual muscles for overcoming fear. It can be tempting to spend time with and entertain your fear thoughts. But in doing so, we lose the connection to our spiritual strength.
