 Survival instinct/coping strategy is necessary. We would not be able to sustain ourselves as a race without it.However, our survival instinct/coping strategy can be a friend to our survival and a foe to our recovery.
 Whenever we head down a path of doing what we Love, pursuing our dreams and doing something new – we step into uncertainty.
 Because of this – our survival instinct old coping strategies fires. This part of the brain is called the amygdala. It’s in the center of the brain and it’s the home of our “fight or flight” response.
 This response is what keeps us alive, and yet it’s also the response that holds us back from thriving.
 It’s ironic that a part of our brain that was designed to keep us alive prevents us from also really living.
 The amygdala is binary. Which means it’s ON or OFF. There’s no middle ground.
 Because it’s binary, it cannot tell the difference between the proverbial tiger in the bush or starting a new business.
 It can’t tell the difference between a REAL threat and a perceived threat.
 And – it can’t tell the difference between a risk that would kill you and taking a risk that would propel you into a new level of living.
 Most healing modalities, no matter what they are – tend to calm this part of the brain. Tapping, massage, prayer, meditation, yoga, therapy, life coaching, many prescription drugs, etc.
 This is the core of much of the anxiety that we feel – this fight or flight response being stimulated and producing adrenaline and cortisol in the body.
 So, no matter what you believe in – focus on tools that can help calm your amygdala down.
 Our fear mantra is: unless I’m in mortal danger, fear is a compass showing me where to go.
 We must embrace uncertainty in life if we are to grow – and the practice of seeing the difference between a real threat and a perceived threat plus learning to take risks that won’t actually kill you are the key things we must master if we are to live incredible lives.
 What risks could you take that you think would “kill” you – even though you know it wouldn’t? Maybe it’s starting a business, leaving a job, or a toxic relationship, maybe it’s finally saying I LOVE YOU, or taking a stand.
 Whatever it is, do you think that it will actually kill you? If not, what new action could you take now?
 Great amygdala calmers: Recovery Meditation, Step work, talking to a teacher,mentor or sponsor, Iyengar Yoga,  meditation, Vipassana meditation, EFT/tapping, massage,  therapy,  following your recovery path and telling the truth, becoming honest.
