Today, I am repeating a theme I have written about many times before: FEAR.
Because going into fear is so habitual for all of us, I keep being lead to discuss it. I know it bears repeating, over and over, until we get it.
Our species is moving towards a tipping point (Many say we are already there.) We are reaching the place where we, as a species and each individually are choosing which way we want to go in our development. No one has to change. We are each given free choice. And no one will ever be left behind. Everyone will eventually get there. But whether it is this time around on planet earth or whether it will be done in another venue, is up to each of us. If you want to get there sooner than later, you want to let go of suffering, and you want to help this grand experiment of earth succeed, then it is time to consciously choose.
DO YOU CHOOSE LOVE OR FEAR?
Those are the only two things that need to be dealt with.
Let’s look more closely at fear. Fear is located only in the past and in the future. It does NOT exist in the present. Fear is the projection of what might happen in the future or what already happened in the past and its possible consequences. If you are feeling fearful of something, you are not in the present!
Because fear is not in the present and the present, the Now, is really the only thing that exists, then fear is an illusion! This illusion is rampant on the planet! Fear is the ego’s ace in the hole. When nothing else works to control you, the ego pulls the FEAR card. Fear is a way to keep you tied up in your own supposed inadequacies, unworthiness, and scary speculations which keeps you from being in the present moment where you can access the high vibrational field of love. The Now is the only place where love is actually available. You may have memories of past love experiences and hopes for such in the future, but still, the past and future are not giving you the real thing, just a shadow of what has already passed and what might be. The ego operates at a lower vibrational level and wants to keep you there. It hates it when you are in the present because it has to relinquish its control over you. It has to take a back seat. Letting one’s ego be in charge is like letting the family pet run the household. Not a good idea…
The ego is very stubborn and tries diligently to suck you into its realm of fear. The methods it uses has been enlarged so much by social media which spreads fear and hate so easily. Television is another culprit, another tool for the ego to use to bring in the fear mongering, what I like to call Fear Porn. One can be an addicted to the “ain’t it awful” scenarios that are constantly being presented. Also remember that in the main media we are given limited amount of information. There are a few talking points that all the media, liberal and conservative alike expound on, but beyond that we get very limited amounts of readily available information.
If you want more you have to dig. Sometimes there may be information that you can tease out that may be pertinent, but be careful! The muck you might take on in the process may not be worth it. Pardon the analogy, but it’s like picking out undigested nuggets of food for nourishment out of a pile of animal feces. What you get will be paltry and contaminated and you’re going to get sh-t on your hands.
To counteract the negativity that is purposely being spewed across the planet, this is what I have been doing.
Each morning I begin my day with this prayer.
“Heal my fear-based thoughts.”
(Taken from the book The Only Little Prayer You Need: The Shortest Route to a Life of Joy, Abundance, and Peace of Mind by Debra Landwehr Engle.) Very simple but very powerful words, that open one up for releasing fear-based thoughts and opening to what is real – LOVE. It can be an amazing experience if you let the prayer sink in. Repeat it every time you find yourself becoming fearful about something. It’s amazing how much it helps!
There are several other things I do as well to reset myself for the day. I say to myself,
“I am amazingly, gloriously, healthy happy and strong!”
I also say,
“Today I choose to live in the high vibrational field of Love.”
Some people call it 5-D, some call it Easy World, or any other number of names, but it is basically staying in the field of Love. When you are in that field, things flow easily in ways you never could have imagined. It creates for you a place where you can let go of the need to control, where you can trust in the flow, and know that you are indeed being taken care of.
There’s one more I like to say,
“I am opened to and expect miracles today!”
Those four things take very little time. Say them out loud (you can whisper them if need be). They set the stage for the day, to help you navigate the illusion of the 3-D world and move into the reality of the high vibration of Love.
As you do these techniques, tune in and pay attention to what you feel. It might be very subtle at first, but give it some time. You will know that you are exactly where you need to be and that the things that are happening in your life are part of your journey.
Give yourself the gift of letting go of fear. It might feel very unfamiliar to you (and scary, of course) to not be always controlling your life. But when you do allow yourself to trust, you can play in the NOW! Life is a great playground!
So go forth and have fun!
