Coming Home to Yourself Through Fear Melters®

In these resources you will discover the power of Fear Melters®, which were developed by Katie Hendricks. Each of the Fear Melters® supports you in coming home to yourself by befriending and shifting fear to presence and new choice. You’ll learn about the four ways our brain reacts in fear and the four shift moves that can restore inner harmony, balance and expanded possibility. These powerful body intelligence-based practices will assist you in centering yourself and freeing up choice – even in stressful and challenging circumstances.

The four Fear Melters® are: Wiggle, Ooze, Root, and Love Scoops.

Note: We are integrating a change to Fear Melters®. We have shifted the icon and instructions for melting the flee response to Root, which we think will be more aligned with the other melters and available to more people.

I’ve been playing with seeing how subtly I can do Fear Melters, so that I can feel them on the inside but they are virtually undetectable from the outside.

… I Love Root! I too have often fled into my head, thinking that would keep me safe. I now see it as isolating myself from Life. I liked what Katie said Tuesday, something like “Integrity is the best way to create Safety.” I notice that Root helps me feel solid and complete, i.e. wholeness…

While doing love scoops every morning for weeks I noticed a place I was NOT sending love… my fingernails. I had had a life long habit of biting my nails to the point of bleeding. I had generated tremendous shame (and pain) throughout my life with this embarrassing vice. So, I began sending drops of…

My intention for today is to love my eyes. Giving them tender love scoops already. I am willing to love my eyes AND I think there’s something wrong with them. I think I have had that thought since I first experienced distance blurring in high school. I feel sad. And teary. Like I didn’t let…

As I entered into the last 30-45 seconds of doing love scoops this morning, I experienced a clear message to hold my hands open palmed as I scooped towards my heart. Since I busted my Agreement Cop earlier this week, I’ve spontaneously been humming deep resonant sounds that reverberate my chest area. I’m feeling tender…

I resonated with the thought of doing FM’s while moving through my “normal” life. I felt so playful as I made my movements larger (taking up more space in the world) and kept moving forward. It gave me a burst of aliveness and I still feel the reverberations of playful energy. Delicious way to start…

I noticed when I was sharing love scoops with a client recently that they were just going through the motions. The scoops were not landing emotionally. Once they began to land the scoops on their body with a small pause, there was a slight softening in they’re face. I like the idea of scooping something…

I went to a dance competition this last weekend, and I used the fear melters again and again to process fear around showing up and being seen. I danced better than I’ve ever danced before, and my dance partner Bailey and I ended up winning. The moves we did are all improvised, but we decided…

It didn’t take long for me to start a timer on Google for FOUR minutes and start doing Fear Melters. As I went through some of the usual moves, I noticed I was shifting from love scoops to spontaneously slapping my chest and legs, not really hurting myself, it was more like matching the slaps…

I made a discovery this morning doing Fear Melters. I’ve been doing them to music and today I noticed that my attention was on the music more than on my body’s experience of Fear Melters. I’m wondering into how I can deepen my practice of fear melters so that I’m fully present. I feel like…

When I first started doing Fear Melters, I was challenged by feeling the love scoops. My arms were scooping, scooping, and I was visualizing heart shaped rain drops, showers of loving waterfalls —you name it !— and I felt nothing. Until… I looked out the window. I’m discovering how visual and tactile my learning style…

I have used each of the four Fear Melters more than you can imagine. I have a LOT of fear! What amazes me is that these techniques work so powerfully. I can feel them working, as the energy shifts and most importantly, I can tell mainly in my heart. It hurts less.

I chose to give love scoops to my lower back (I felt a call to there). I felt a current of delicious spark energy move through me. Like I had plugged in an area in my body that was super charged to receive love energy. I savored the buzz and then did it again and…

…I love this share and the realization of being able to do these practices while on the phone. I love that before a virtual workshop I can do 2 minutes of Fear Melters in the room I’m presenting in. I’m noticing a little voice encouraging me to try them in person too…..

…In other words, facing and feeling the fear, moving it through my body and then loving myself with compassion allowed me to have some compassion for her. And now I’m able to actually serve her better.

I’ve been playing with finding my “sweet spot“ with my fear melters. When I’m moving, I’m feeling into the speed and rhythm and movement until it feels just right in my body. Like Goldilocks. If I’m moving too much or too quickly, I might still be aware of my body, but my awareness of my…

Crazy thought this morning—After noticing how much better I feel after Fear Melters and creative joint play, I wondered if the aches and pains I’ve recently experienced are just a bunch of knotted fears that have accumulated over 6-8 years of elder caregiving. Could be as simple as the aging process, but when I reflect upon…

While coaching a client, I had the opportunity to witness the immediate effective of doing FMs. The client expressed about an issue which seemed to me to include feeling fear. I asked if that was accurate. Then I asked what sensations on the Fast-Aid for Fear Melters sheet they noticed were happening right now. After…

…I like to add “HERE I AM” to my Root — and I love lifting up and then dropping my heels and saying “here I am” as a way to presence.

While doing my fear melters this morning I had the thought that “I wonder if a grounding Root would be supportive when I notice that I am fleeing to my head.” I giggled when I pulled the Integrity deck card Fear Melter: “I recognize the leaving quality of my body fleeing and easily shift into…
