In the Toltec tradition fear is considered one of the obstacles to achieving personal freedom. The main objective of the tradition is to change your point of creation from your mind to your spirit. When you are aligned with your spirit you are fearless. When you are immersed in your filter system fear is everywhere.
One of the ways to use fear is as a guidepost helping you realize where you are in the continuum between your connection to your filter system or your spirit. So you can use fear as an exercise to expand your awareness.
When you notice fear spend a few minutes and track your thoughts. Notice what you were thinking and how you disconnected from your spirit. By doing that you will diffuse the fear and unravel another piece of your filter system. You will be one step closer to achieving personal freedom.
With love and aloha,
