“Fear of life is really the fear of emotions. It is not the facts that we fear but our feelings about them. Once we have mastery over our feelings, our fear of life diminishes.”
- David R. Hawkins
Rather than becoming too entangled within the content of our story, it is essential that we become familiar with our nervous system. Many of us are walking around with a dysregulated nervous system caused by old trauma, therefore rationalising our problem will most often not relieve us of it; our anxiety and depression will persist until the system becomes regulated again, which is a process within the body.
