Creative Journaling Challenge day 20: pick an emotion and make a page about that emotion.
When I set this challenge, every person that sent through their picture chose the emotion of fear to work with. It is interesting that this came up, and it shows that fear plays such a big part in our lives, it can be serving so many purposes. It gives us resistance and shows us when we are growing. It reminds us when we are about to do something that matters to us. It shows us when we are about to enter the unknown. It alerts us to danger, sometime not realistically. And for me it serves as a challenge to step into, feeling fear and not shying away from that which scares me. It is a continual development of resilience and embracing all experiences as felt sense, not good or bad. Just an experience that may be uncomfortable, can I be with it? Can I surrender to the feeling and therefore release something, learn something, transform a fear into a realisation that feeling it will not kill me? The fear has been given my full attention and then it is not so scary, because it has transformed from unknown to known. And then there is always something new that is unknown. Someone asked me a question this week. Can you surrender the story of the ego and embrace the mysteries? This applies to so many different things, and invites me to feel the sensation of letting go of what I may think I have control over. What are you being asked to surrender to?
