5 Steps to Melt your Frozen Fear  

Do you ever feel frozen by self-doubt or insecurity? Unable to progress even though all you want to do is move forward? I’m having one of those days. I’ve been trying to complete a project with my inner critic harping on me. It’s kept me stuck! It’s taking me a day and a half to accomplish something that would typically take a few hours.   I understand the incessant hammering of my critic was born from a protective impulse to keep me “safe” but it’s just not helpful. It turns my own power against me and it’s all based on F.E.A.R. (False Evidence Appearing Real)   She’s really quite a drama queen and alarmist!   I want to tell her it’s not that big of a deal (because it isn’t) and to chill out.   When I can step back and have some humor it does loosen her grip but when I’m in a frozen F.E.A.R. state I have the best success with a Sacred Feminine wisdom approach.   Here are the 5 Sacred Feminine Wisdom Steps to shift the frozen F.E.A.R.:   1.

Like I could never quite fit in.   So I tried to cut her off and become what was applauded and approved of. I watched the contempt and denigration of the feminine in my home, my church and the world around me. I attracted people and experiences that trashed the feminine within me. I believed the lies and felt for years I’m not enough.    I learned to put on the mask and try to fit in to relationships and institutions that didn’t “get” me. Or see the value in my sensitivity or deep emotions. It left me feeling even more insecure and self-critical.   How about you? Do you struggle with self-judgment and doubt?
