Fear is the domain in which many people live.
Our media feeds on this. Fear sells.
Fear is an absence of faith – an absence of trust in ourselves, the universe and the ultimate goodness of humankind. Many people live in mind-made stories which evoke fear. Most fear is not ‘real’ – it is not a response to real and true danger in the moment. Most fear is a negative ‘food source’ of our mind.
When you notice that you feel afraid, ask yourself this: “Is there a real and true danger to my well-being in this moment? If so, what is it? How can I respond to it in a constructive way that will deliver me into my empowerment? If not, how can I discipline my mind to focus on what is real and good in my experience right now?”
Fear is one of the most crippling emotional states that people get chronically snagged in. It is debilitating. Yet, when the fear is ‘real’ and attended to, a state of well-being resumes.
For a brief instant, step into the energy field of fear.
Memories may flash in you, like snapshots on a movie screen. You may feel sensations in your body or hear inner voices. Notice how your body reacts. Does it shrink inward? Does it lash out? Is your breathing open and easy … or tight and ‘high up’? Be as alert as you can possibly be for these few moments.
Familiarize yourself with the energy field of fear so that you can recognize it as an observer in future. As you master this, you will never ever need to languish in it again.
As soon as you have a sense of the energy field of fear, step out of it. Become an observer simply watching it – from the outside. This returns you to a place of choice.
Remember … We are traveling UP this ladder of emotions. Keep reading the upcoming posts, as we are not here to linger in Fear.
