So, theme of the week = FEAR! I feel it needs capitals for extra shock value. Like it needs it. This week i shared some of my fears with the classes, (a top ten if you will, cue Disc Jockey voice) and i thought, for “fun” i´d add them to this post, just to give some extra jelly to the playlist. Here goes:
1) Spiders. Terrified.
2) Being the centre of attention. Hence why i became a yoga teacher.
3) Public toilets. Ucksville.
5) Having my picture taken. You´ll notice the same bewildered expression upon each photo.
7) Being late and missing something. Including life. Which leads us to…
8 ) Death/dying.
9) Horror films. Useless.
10) Pickles. I don´t trust them.
Most fear (although at times very real and scary) tends to be based on an irrational feeling the mind has attached to, working it´s way into (in most cases) being worse than the actuality. The powerful mind can convince us to latch onto anything we allow it to, be that terror, hysteria or lust (etc).
Sometimes we just have to stare into those (eight) eyes and accept what gets washed up, and rather than run screaming into the night in one´s dressing gown (oh, just me then?), we can see it for what it really is. A feeling. That is possible to change at any moment. What is really interesting is when we start to explore a little deeper into the seat of this particular feeling.
So, before the ´hits´i´ll leave you with a (veggie) sausage:
