This mantra is for when you find yourself holding back because you are taking on something new or stepping out of your comfort zone. You may be afraid of how you will be received, or how others will perceive you.
This is my “go to” mantra before having a difficult conversation, meeting new people, or stepping out into the unknown.
Instead of reacting to the fear by withdrawing or becoming tense and protective, this reminds me to open up and embrace the situation instead. It is my favorite!
Compassion for myself and others. Open my heart to our common humanity. We all get nervous when we face the unknown and stretch ourselves. We are all human beings looking for reassurance and safety.
Curiosity about others. What is important to them? What do they care about? We are unique and interesting human beings, and we all want to be acknowledged and accepted just the way we are.
Connection. We are all human beings looking for love and understanding. Within each of us is a divine spark that already connects us in spirit.
When the heart opens, and the mind lets go, fear disappears.
When we live from this place of love, there is no fear, only connection.
