Matt Kahn On Fear

“It’s ok to be scared. It’s more unnatural to judge yourself for having fears, even though judgment is also an essential experience along the path of your highest spiritual growth. You are destined to wake up from it all, but in order to do so, each aspect of your journey must be savored and honored, even when unpleased by the circumstances at hand. The first step is daring to be completely honest about how much something scares you.

Please do not attempt to move past this point too quickly. Instead, take a moment, perhaps this moment right here, and rest in the complete acceptance of whatever you are afraid to face. You have every right to be afraid. When fear is a right and privilege, it is honored as a sign post of energetic expansion. You certainly won’t be afraid forever, but that doesn’t make it wrong to be absolutely afraid for whatever reason right now.

What happens when you fully admit whatever you are afraid of without making it wrong to fear? What occurs when fear is a sensation to welcome and explore exactly as it is? What happens when not liking how you feel doesn’t require you to turn away from your feelings, over-rationalize the likelihood of impending difficulty, or shut down in any way? What happens when you get more interested in exploring a feeling, instead of deciding how much or how little you like it? What occurs when being who you are becomes more important than constantly trying to get what you want or attempting to make things the way you insist they should be? How is it wise, valuable, and beneficial to be absolutely afraid whenever fear arises?

Only the courage of your deepest honesty ever knows for sure.  Always say, ‘Thank you for this experience.  No matter what.’ ”

After thirty years of teaching Inner City, Special Education students and forty-five years of metaphysical studies, I have decided to share my life's philosophical understandings on this wonderful website. For me, everything in my life has been a spiritual experience from being raised in an alcoholic household, to marriage and teaching, and finally caring for an Alzheimer parent. I have sought at least fifteen, personal psychic readings to try and assist me as a wife, teacher and caretaker. I want to share the wisdom that I have gained from following the valuable spiritual guidance from my inner knowing and from heeding the advise of channeled answers from trusted psychics. At almost 70 years old, I am writing, traveling and enjoying retirement in Florida.
