Let's get to the bottom of this, shall we? What are those sensations coursing up and down your spine when you hear the word 'coronavirus'? That tightness around your heart? Shallow breaths, survival-instinct alertness, ready to leap away, or fight, or just panic?
Yes. It is fear. Deep fear. High-intensity fear. Your fear.
What is that fear actually about? What are you truly afraid of? What do you imagine will happen to you if you get infected with coronavirus?
You don't know?
That is because your Numbness Bar is so high.
You were trained to feel afraid of your fear, so you cut fear off at its source by raising your Numbness Bar to its maximal level.
This may not be as smart as you think. Your fear is not an accident. It is not there for no reason. Your fear has intelligence from all the years of your life to inform you about dangers. Your fear has energy to get you to safety.
Let's do an experiment to find out what your Coronavirus Fear is actually about. Doing this experiment is simple. It starts by gently lowering your Numbness Bar.
Lower your Numbness Bar down so you start to notice the experience of 10% intense fear, 6% intense fear, even 3% intense fear coming directly from the source of the fear.
There is a lot of fear in you, fear about so many things. You have wasted so much fear-intelligence for so many years of your life.
Let yourself feel afraid right now. You don't have to scream about it. Simply allow it to get big enough to talk with. Say, "Hello Fear. What do you have for me?"
Then listen. Get out your Beep! Book and write down what your coronavirus fear tells you. Write page-after-page before you think:
Write: CORONAVIRUS CREATES IN ME THE FEARS OF:
- Fear of fever aches? The sweating? The shivering?
- Fear of headaches? The overall pain and lack of energy?
