  • FEAR is the ONLY Obstacle in Life - colour "GRAY"

    In a recent session with a client we discovered the ONLY OBSTACLE in life is FEAR.

    I know this, yet it still gives me a moment to pause and reflect back on the last 25 years of working with clients (and myself).

    Fear takes on so many different shapes, costumes, flavors, circumstances, we often don’t recognize it as fear, we think it’s a fact and it isn’t. Fear can be the underlying cause of depression, allergies, aches and pains. Let me explain…

    obstacles peel away grey filterWHAT ARE YOU AFRAID OF? WHY?(Make a list, and list out all your because's too...)

    Seems that quarantine has made it difficult for some of us to want to be social again. We are so used to being at home, not inundated by others emotions, energy or complications.

    Are you noticing a resistance in go back to the office, worried about your kids going back to school? Are your kid nervous at being around vaccinated or not vaccinated people? Has the pandemic created a new phobia?

    If so I have created a Family Special just for you. 5 one hour sessions at a savings of $25/session. That's one hour for each member and followup when necessary.

    pen inkNow just for fun grab a pen and paper and make that list - all the things you are afraid of. Realy WHAT ARE YOU AFRAID OF?

    Now list all the reasons WHY for each of those fears. (Write until you run out of any excuses & reasons, any because or but's)

    Now notice if FEAR were a colour what colour would you give it?Would you identify it as gray? What happens if you add some green or orange to it? Does the grey disolve?

    Now for each of those fears and its reasons, write the opposite with "What if..."

    FEAR lives mostly in our heads, so in a way it’s an internal obstacle which clouds our thinking, puts a shadow or filter on our experiences that is then projected onto all our life circumstances, events, and the people around us.
