If you’ve been working with me around horses for a while, you’ve already had plenty of practice in understanding that when you feel into and open up to the understanding of whatever fear you’re experiencing – then the fear has done its job and just disappears.
It’s a simple process and the fear vanishes as quickly as you can say pffftt when you get the understanding and take whatever action you need to take – if any. If you’ve been working with me personally, you will have experienced the proof of that with your horses, over and over again.
Well it’s the same for ALL our fears – read on…
When it’s our horses it’s simpler, bless them. We feel their fear and the action we need to take to have them feeling safe, is almost always to back off – at least in the beginning.
And if you’ve been around me and doing this work for a while, you’ll have noticed that every time you’ve taken action to help your horse to deal with their fear that your own … errr… what shall I call it? … core fear from stored up old fears … has reduced – and that your feelings of peacefulness have been getting deeper and the good feelings are getting bigger for longer periods of time.
That feeling of using our fear to guide us to safety becomes a sweet normality of life with our horses when we decide to listen to our inner guidance system and use it to make ourselves and our horses safe.
And if you’ve got your eyes and awareness open, the same “using our fear to guide us to safety”, to understand where safety is and what you have to do to find it, will apply to your life outside of horses too.
And the same principle of “using our fear to guide us to safety and peace of mind” will apply to all the situations around the “insert the c word here.” I’m not even mentioning the c word, because I don’t want to attract the wrong kind of attention – although I will attempt to bring a bit of perspective to it in a minute.
And if you’re still afraid right now, of the “insert c word here” – you haven’t got the answer yet, because the right answer will ALWAYS bring you peace of mind. So you might seriously enjoy and benefit from the meditation below! 🙂
Fear damages the immune system
Fear damages the immune system and after 24 years in the alternative health industry, I can tell you that EVERY single weak immune system that I’ve come across in my work, has had a bucket load of suppressed fear at the bottom of it.
To strengthen the immune system you can do some practical things, but getting to the bottom of fear itself, is by far the most powerful thing to do.
There is absolutely no point in me telling you what to do with your fear. It’s yours and to find peace of mind – AND YOU CAN FIND PEACE OF MIND AND FAIRLY EASILY – you have to get the answer yourself. But I’m hoping that this article and the healing meditation below will help you to find both your answer and your peace of mind.
There’s four kinds of fear
We’ve got all kinds of labels for fear that speak to how intense the fear is and how old it is – scared, afraid, fear, anxiety, dread, fright, terror, panic – even concern is a description of mild fear.
But there’s four KINDS of fear:
1. Old fears – each old fear that we didn’t get to act on or make ourselves safe with – old suppressed fears add up one on top of the other and intensify every new fear. As you’ve noticed if you’ve been doing horse work with me, that’s been getting less and less over time as you listen to your inner guidance system to be safe yourself and help your horse be and feel safe too.
2. New fear – something that is causing a fear now, that you can use to make yourself safe. THAT folks is what fear is designed for, to listen to and use to make yourself AND OTHERS around you, to be and feel safe too.
3. Our connection to others – whether it’s people or horses or indeed any other animal, we experience others’ fear as a simple part of our connection to each other. It’s part of the wonderful experience of being able to take care of ourselves at the same time as having a wonderful impact on everyone in our environment. The action we take is the same – understand what we need to know or do about it – and pfffttt with the click of your fingers, it’s gone and peace of mind is the result.
4. Fear and excitement can collapse together and you can’t tell them apart. This is a whole other subject that I won’t go into here, but suffice to say this is the kind of fear people are talking about when they say “face your fear and do it anyway”. I hope so anyway, otherwise they’ll be making themselves unsafe! Personally, I enjoy them UNcollapsed, where I can feel into and appreciate, welcome and enjoy the excitement!
The thing to know about the c word
The thing that seems to be lost among all this panic is that all the virologists – the experts – who don’t have a vested interest in scaring the crap out of you – are reporting that the VAST MAJORITY of people who get “insert the c word” suffer symptoms NO MORE THAN A MILD COLD.
And before you reach for your keyboard, yes that’s cold comfort for those who have died of other things while they had “insert the c word here” at the same time.

Today’s stunning painting is called Driven and it’s by the amazing artist Tracie Thompson. I chose it for the metaphor – that when we don’t understand fear, that we can be driven by something that we need have no fear of at all…
