Overcoming fear is a personal journey of every student. Samantha beautifully shares her process to trust and confidence with clients.
“The night before my first official client with Reflexology and Essential Oils, I felt nervous, anxious and overwhelmed so I meditated before finally falling asleep.
While sleeping, I had an amazing dream where I was at a Reflexology convention but recoiled into the shadows letting everyone else participate and receive praise. I felt sick in my stomach with fearful feelings of inadequacy but knew I had to take my place to represent my work.
And then, there you were, Farida, glowing in a golden gown with light emanating around you. When your eyes met mine you bowed your head in acknowledgement and I took a seat next to you. You saw my discomfort and when you selected a gentleman to approach me with his inquiries, my heart leapt into my stomach while I listened to him. I glanced at you as I formulated my response and after you gave me a kind smile and a gentle nod of encouragement. I was instantly filled with confidence and gave a full response to the man. When I touched his feet he began to glow. I then talked with others, spreading the knowledge and lovingly holding their feet, until they too glowed as they walked away. Eventually the whole room began to emanate the same glow.
When I awoke the anxious fears had vanished and I enjoyed a great experience with my client! He had an abundance of questions and I answered confidently as knowledge and experience flowed from me. He mentioned the session was unlike anything he had experienced before and that he received deep connections where nerve damage had previously prevented sensation.
I left the session smiling and feeling very close to you, as if the dream had taken place within the treatment. I realised everything I shared with him is what you shared with me, and it felt like we were both with you today.
I thank you from the deepest well of gratitude for your patience, kindness, wisdom and the love that enlightens me. Most of all, thank you for holding the space I have needed to learn to love myself beyond fear so that I can receive the abundant support of universal energies. I am immensely looking forward to the Spain Naturopathy Immersion and the company of other sacred souls.
I honour you as you have honoured me, SO much love and blessings,” Sam
Overcoming fear requires one important understanding, which is, that almost all fear is imaginary. However mental fears become worry, anxiety and stress that activates the flight fight freeze survival responses. These physical sensations seem to make fear more real than it truly is. Gaining strength to release the body sensations that inhibit normal communications and ease is a practice involving breath, mental clarity and a strong embodied presence of being in the moment instead of in imagination. Personal evolutionary Self Healing helps move us beyond fear into confidence. While there are many paths to overcoming fear, there are also skills and remedies that assist us on our journey.
