Fear vs Joy

Fear vs Joy – the electricity of your vibrations

Are you sometimes frozen with a feeling of fear, a feeling you attach to “fear”, sometimes you may not even know what the fear is about but you certainly know the feeling.

Something I often talk about on my Morning Motivator Webinars is turning a feeling of fear into a feeling of joy simply by changing the name of the feeling.

In my mind, that feeling of fear we get – the tension in the pit of the stomach, the taught muscles across the shoulders, that lump in the throat is the SAME feeling as JOY, with a different name attached.

Consider the feeling of pure JOY – that feeling of excitement like you are going to BURST from the inside. You have that “tickle” in the pit of your stomach, your shoulders are all tight with excitement, you hair is almost standing on end with energy so much so you have a lump in your throat.

Same feeling .. different name.

Fear or Joy – now consider the next time you feel that fear of anything, stop for a moment and truly FEEL the feelings in your body. Name them .. feel what your body is sensing. Now, just for a moment – hold on to that feeling and think about something fun, something that makes you smile, something that always brings you joy. Now, just for a moment – change the name of the feeling … from fear to JOY and excitement about everything that is coming to you.

Breathe in more joy, increase that feeling and hold on to it for as long as you can.

Do you feel it?

It is an exhilarating feeling that has few words to truly describe the sensation. It is a sensation you will know, without a doubt.

Remember, what you experience is all about what you are attaching thought to feeling about. If you are in fear, you will attract fearful thoughts and in so doing, attract all you do not want. Feel the feeling and name it joy – excitement – happiness – anything that lifts you up and let it lift you up.

Enjoy and be all you want to be,

    Thank you, Janet. I needed this this morning, a frigid late-March day with wind howling and snow predicted. Changing the name from fear to joy was actually easy, because I noticed how I was feeling, then looked up at three photos of me with each of my beautiful, grown children. Joy!
