Make Friends with Fear

“I don’t want to spar with Frank!” shouted Terry, “He’s scary!”  Terry, a software executive, is panicking at her final test in samurai kung fu.  She can face an audience of 300, direct her staff of 20, and complain to her partner.  But to face her fear is terrifying.  She bows to Frank saying, “How can I defeat you?”

“I don’t want to spar with Frank!” shouted Terry, “He’s scary!”  Terry, a software executive, is panicking at her final test in samurai kung fu.  She can face an audience of 300, direct her staff of 20, and complain to her partner.  But to face her fear is terrifying.  She bows to Frank saying, “How can I defeat you?”

Frank looms over her saying: “I will be loud, nasty, and call out your mistakes.  I’ll be in your head at night, when putting on makeup, meeting clients, playing with the kids—and especially in traffic.  I’ll insist you are not smart enough; nobody likes you, your family is dysfunctional, and your nose is crooked.  You cannot defeat me.”

But,” he whispers, “If you do not react to me, argue with me, run around in a panic or get stuck believing all this, if you see that I am only a habit of fear–you can face me, turn a corner, and move ahead.”

That’s how Terry befriended her fear—in that version of an old Zen story.

Here are real stories from clients:

Bobby cringed when his CEO scolded him in public.  We saw that being triggered was not the same as a childhood wound visible in his astrological birth chart.  We transformed the energies.

Katie has a magical gift of combining astrology, tarot and most importantly her intuition of connecting the dots that help guide me on my human journey.  “

Bobby, Software executive

 

Kathy is an artist, but felt stuck and insecure with her talent.  After our classes in tarot, astrology, and coaching time together, she feels revived.

Katie helps me recognize the fears, emotions and triggers that keep me from moving forward, the fear of what ifs.  Now when I bump up against that emotional wall, I can recognize and deal with it.

Aylin cried out, “This commute is killing me!” By changing an inner argument of stress into a calmer conversation, she has moved her office and found relief.

With Katie’s coaching I am learning to rewrite my belief that my value requires struggle into something more like: easy playfulness gives me a sense of freedom and peace.

Aylin, Massage Therapist

 

Betsy was in early recovery, struggling with deep wounds of self-worth.  After we highlighted her natal talents over old harsh internalized voices, she had a shift.

I struggled so much with impatience and feelings of lack.  Katie helped me to break deep and painful patterns that were keeping me sick with the power of pause and prayer. 

Betsy, Script writer
