The Gift Behind Fear

In fear, you will make yourself small and revert to your inner child’s ways of seeing the world. However, it is possible to allow the energy of fear to powerfully propel you into maturity.

Fear is a high energy state. To engage in fear's transformational potential, you can gain strength by leaning into your fears to find out what gifts are on the other side.

Each fear-moment that you face with willingness, energy and presence reveals a brand-new possibility. Every fear hides a new gift that is trying to emerge into this world.

Spiritual teacher Michael Bernard Beckwith explains it in this way, "When you contemplate the challenges (fears) in your life ask yourself, "What gift within me is seeking to emerge?" Place attention on the emerging gift rather than the challenge, and you will witness how the challenge begins to dissolve."
