How To Deal With Your Fear of the Unknown

Life is full of unexpected surprises.

Success is never a straight line.

There are no guarantees in life.

So the degree to which you can embrace the unknown is the degree to which you are free.

There's this notion that you have to know where you are going at all times in life. That you must have all the answers for your life.

This is an illusion.

Chances are if you have all the answers for your life, you are not asking big enough questions and aren't playing a big enough game.

The need to know exactly where we are going often paralyzes so many of us from taking the important first step. Life often reveals itself in the process of living. It can't be completely figured out all in advance.

And if you look back at your life, most of your very best laid out plans never quite work out how you had originally intended.

The mind is constantly needing to know. To know where it is going. To know what will be. To understand everything logically. Whilst this is useful at times. It has its limits.

Sometimes you can think you know where you are going but in retrospect you really didn't.

On the other hand, sometimes you think you are lost without any idea but in truth you are more on course than you realize.

We try to know because we want to be in control. And the reality is there is so much of life that is out of our control. There is so much that will never be understood with the mind.

Control is the master addiction. It's when you surrender and let go of control that you open yourself up to the miracles of life.

Life is a beautiful mystery. Life is not a math problem to be solved, but a beautiful poem to be savored and celebrated.

When you are in the midst of the unknown it can be truly scary, especially if you allow the mind to take over. Most people freak out, and this only leads to you spiraling into worry. It's totally unproductive.

In the midst of the unknown, breathe and get curious. Trust that there is something more that is seeking to unfold and reveal itself in your life. There is something bigger and better seeking to happen for you. The more you can surrender and stay open, the more you make yourself available to being in the flow.

Often when we don't know what's going on, we get afraid and resist the process that is happening. This fear can lead us into frantic action. When you act motivated by fear, you create more situations to be afraid of.

Rather than act from fear, be still and listen to your deeper knowing beyond the mind. If you become quiet, you will hear the intelligence of your soul guiding you. It will show up as intuition.

Your soul has an intelligence beyond the mind. Your soul has the ability to see beyond the physical eyes.

There is a part of you that always knows, if you really listen. Then you act from that deeper knowing and you will be in sync with life.

When you don't listen and you act from fear, you only create more suffering for yourself and those around you.

So make friends with the unknown and welcome it. Use it as an opportunity to be fully available to life's unexpected blessings.

What you can be sure of is that no matter what you are going through, the fact that you are going through it means you are ready. So know that there is a reason even if it's not clear in this moment.

In the midst of the unknown. Don't panic. Breathe. Center yourself and trust. Reassure yourself. Stay in this present moment.

Don't fixate on the future and all the things that might happen but haven't yet. Simply take one step forward focusing on doing what is in your power to do.

Know that the same force that is guiding the universe is guiding you at all times.

Trust your soul.

Trust life.
