From the recording Overcoming Fear, Terror & Resistance - Part 1
When we experience fearful feelings and resistance it is very often connected to not feeling safe, it means we are not listening deeply enough to ourselves and what we need, we are pushing ahead too fast, still thinking we are in control of what happens next. The woundedness in us needs us to go slowly but we have not been listening, getting too caught up in the excitement and beauty of life, so then what happens is that the survivor in us intervenes in our forward movement and slams on the brakes. The survivor sabotages our success because we are not listening. Fear, Terror & Resistance are all voices of the inner survivor saying ‘you are not listening to me, please stop and take a moment to honour me’. Our inner survivors are like stoic guardians standing at the gateway between different paradigms of living. Thou shall not break through without submitting to these guardians and relinquishing full control.
This is a meditation for honouring all the voices of our inner survivors. Fear, terror and resistance. So that maybe, just maybe we will be allowed to begin moving beyond the experience of survival and really start living life more fully.
