Today's Daily Inspiration is inspired from the Safety card in the Chakra Cards for Belief Change
Marie T. Russell's Daily Inspiration
The focus for today is: I am safe!
One of the greatest impediments to be true to ourselves, to live up to our potential, is fear... fear of rejection, fear of ridicule, fear of failure, fear of being unloved, unwanted, unappreciated, etc...
However, fear is not the opposite of courage. Fear is a normal reaction to life's situations... it originates in the physical world where fears come up in life-threatening events... fear of being attacked by a tiger, an alligator, a cobra... in other words, fear of death in some form or another. And this fear also resides in our ego which is afraid of its own death, or loss of control.
The good news is that courage does not require the absence of fear. Courage is taking action despite the fear, or perhaps, due to the fear. Rather than freeze and remain stuck in our old ruts, we face our fear (and the people and things that incite our fear) and refuse to be cowed into submission, into inactivity. We take a deep breath, choose to trust in the support of Life itself, and affirm: I am safe! Then we take another deep breath, and do what we must do to get past the fear and into the wonderful future that awaits our presence.
Today's Focus was excerpted from the InnerSelf.com article:
