Fear feels crappy. There is no way around that. But most of us don't respond to our fear in a logical way. Anytime we bump up against long-held beliefs that no longer serve us and need to be released, which is what is being accelerated individually and collectively during this time, we will feel fear.
We can choose to medicate it and suppress it, which won't be successful and the fear will only knock at our door more loudly. Or we can choose to face and heal the fear, welcoming its message and the growth that will come out of it. As Robert Frost said, "The best way out is always through."
Allowing the fear simply means that we don't run from it, nor do we dive into it.
