As I sit here on a plane, I’m thinking about this next video and worse case scenarios. Some of you might be already wondering where I’m going with this...is she really going to be talking about worse case scenarios while on a plane?
But the reality is, I’ve never had a fear of flying. Im not concerned that me talking about fears and flying will trigger me or magically make what I’m talking about happen. Why? Because I’m just not invested in fear related to this topic at all.
I’m using this as an example because there have been and still are times I get triggered with fear and my mind starts playing out worst case scenarios.
But I use this example because it shows how malleable the mind is, how fears are based on the unique experiences we have, and that if someone has minimal or no fear in a situation than its possible for someone else to get to that point too!
After reducing fear, It doesn’t mean fear won’t come up or a thought won’t come up, it just won’t be super intense and will be much more easier to center.
In this video I discuss two reasons why we are programmed to think about Worst case scenarios.
The most important piece is knowing that worst car scenario thinking comes from an emotion that naturally wants to communicate it. Our chemicals and molecules are doing the fear dance like mad!
Watch this video and let me know what you think in the comments.
Do you have any situations where you tend to think about the worse case scenario?
Are you open to believing that the worst case outcome is highly likely to not be true?
Are you able to reassure the part that is fearful that no matter what you will be there for her?
I’d love to hear your thoughts and experiences!
I'm here for you!
