Day 181 – Firewalker

Two years ago I went to Tony Robbin’s Unleash the Power Within seminar that my daughter had invited me to attend with her in Chicago. The first of the four long days was about turning fear into power and finally after many exercises throughout the day we faced the ultimate fear challenge…to walk across a bed of hot coals. Yep, the entire crowd of attendees, including my daughter, her childhood best friend, her best friends sister and I walked across the beds of coals that ranged between 1,200 and 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. (You don’t have to, but surprisingly you want to!) The goal is once you start doing the impossible (or at least what you thought was impossible like walking across the coals), you can conquer the other fires of your life with ease. It was certainly an experience of a lifetime and I am now an official Firewalker! 🙂

      Most everyone thinks the same at the start but they take you through many exercises throughout the day and teach how to reach a “state” of mind that overcomes your doubt and fears. The idea is once you prove to yourself you can do something almost unthinkable everything else will seem very doable in comparison and if not you put yourself back in that “state”. It really does work.

    Eeee, hot! Well I guess if you’re moving fast enough it’s not really hot? Brave!

      Actually you don’t move fast just at a regular pace, the key is not to stop as that is when the heat penetrates.
