I just came back from a 4 day immersion seminar with Tony Robbins. The energy and power I felt at that event were so high and the memory will stay with me forever.
But, I was very anxious prior to the event specifically about taking my life to the next level and walking on fire.
Negative chatters were unstoppable the moment I booked my ticket. I was terrified of the idea of being hurt from the firewalk. What if I didn’t know how to walk on fire? What if I hurt my feet and I’m all alone around 5000 people without my husband or anyone I know? Who would support me? How would I go back home?
I doubted myself. I doubted what I was capable of. But deep inside I knew something big was about to transform.
The date arrived. The energy was extremely high before we entered the event. People jumping, dancing, laughing and chatting. I was still feeling a bit uncomfortable but I was loosening up slowly.
Toni did an outstanding job. His words hit the spot for each one of us and he created an extremely contagious powerful state for each one of us. I had no option but to dance and simply shift my focus to how powerful I really am.
That day, I learned and experienced for 10 hours how I could instantly shift my state from fear to complete power. That came in quite handy and by the time my turn came to walk on fire, I was so excited, happy, thrilled, hugging people left and right as if I knew them forever.
I no longer felt alone. I did not let my fear control me. I was controlling my fear.
How did I learn to do that? 3 important things Toni talked about:
1- Change of state (physiology) through my posture, dancing, screaming and singing repetitively.
2- Change of focus to what I want to feel on the other side of the firewalk.
3- Change of language. I was no longer saying I can do it. I was saying: I can do anything. I claimed my power! While walking on fire, Toni asked us to say the word: Cool moss.
My anxiety prior to the event was a really good thing. Why? Because I learned that 99% of the time my negative thoughts are bull%^#$. They are not real. They are not true. They are also not serving me at all except for giving me some certainty that I’m safe where I am right now even though deep inside I felt trapped and terrified.
I danced with fear. I felt scared prior to the event but I did what I wanted to do anyways.
The most important lesson of all is that when I claim my power (and everyone can do this at any time instantly), I can do ANYTHING I EVER DREAM OF.
Now back to you:
I want to challenge you to experiment with a situation that you’re struggling with:
Notice your state. Do you feel tension in your shoulders? Neck? Throat? Are your shoulders down or back? What about your chest?
Notice what you’re focusing on: How bad is your situation? What emotions is it triggering? What are you afraid of?
Notice what language are you using when you’re speaking with yourself or others.
Play some loud fun music and dance, jump, scream, sing for 5 minutes only.
Shift your focus towards what is it that you really want instead in this situation
Change your language. For example if you’re saying to yourself: I am always so overwhelmed, say instead: I will always find a way to relax myself.
How do you face your fears and anxiety? What have you tried that shifted you immediately? Please share it in the comments below.
