“Dwell in peace in the home of your own being, and the Messenger of Death will not be able to touch you.”

-Guru Nanak

When you are at peace with yourself, you don’t have to worry or fear things in life. Fear. In the TV show, “Charmed”, the demon of fear was one that was almost invincible; this is because fear is a difficult thing to conquer.

Why do we fear things? Where does fear come from?

Our fears come from a place of insecurity, of feeling out of control over something. But life is not something we can always control. Things happen. LIFE happens.

I’m a firm believer that everything in life happens for a reason. I’m also a believer that we create our own destiny. So in believing this, I know that I have nothing to fear.

It’s true what Winston Churchill said,” We have nothing to fear but fear itself.”

It’s true.

What are you afraid of? What are your fears? Write them down in your journal. Write about your fears.

Now, take your creativity a step further.

If you had to conquer your fears, what would that look like? What image comes to mind, when you think of  conquering fear? For me, the image that comes to mind is a bird. And a flame.

Now take those images, and create something with your preferred art medium (the sort of craft you like to do). Make a pair of earrings with a flame on them. Embroider a bird and hang it on your wall.

Then in this way, you’ll be reminded of not fearing, each time you see it.
