There are many sayings and quotes about fear. Popular wisdom usually advises to face a fear and look it straight in the eyes to overcome it. That’s the hard way, it’s not necessarily a bad way. Some people say you have to tackle fear progressively.
Whether you’re doing it the soft or the hard way, the most important thing is that you’re actually doing it. Don’t let a fear sit in the closet and grow. Open the closet. Face the skeleton. Evict it. Not sure how? Well, Tarot can help. Let me introduce you to a couple of Tarot spreads you can do to identify your own fears, known and unknown, as well as solutions and tips on how to get rid of them.
