I am so grateful to know the freedom beyond a deep fear of snakes. It was a visceral, primal fear. I could not even get close to them. The sight of them filled me with terror and aversion.
When I saw a man bringing his rescues (snakes people would likely have killed had he not relocated them off their property) to a public spot just outside HeartLight here in Uptown Sedona, I knew Life was offering me the opportunity to leap into my fear and in doing so find a greater expression of freedom.
I started with quiet docile ones like little Bruno in the video below, and then moved to more active corn snakes and gopher snakes. A small boa, and perhaps my favorite, a larger Yuma king snake named Arthur. He is the one in the picture.
It’s amazing how love fills the space fear leaves behind. Now I feel almost like I do with puppies or kittens. I feel affection and the desire to hold them with love.
As I mention in the video, I am finding that when I practice denying the subconscious response to one thing I fear, I can do the same more easily with other fears. When we do this we overcome hardwired parts of ourselves. We rewrite the program.
As soon as you are in a discussion with yourself about walking through fear, you’re in it. Now it’s the conscious mind arm wrestling with the subconscious. Only 5% of our mind is conscious. It will tire first in that match. If you don’t leap off that high dive right away, you may not at all, right?
You just gotta leap. No discussion. We all know the freedom that awaits us when we do.
