A couple weeks ago, a friend replied to one of my tweets with “Wrap Your Fears In Love”. I know, I already mentioned this and posted a haiku about it. But the effect of embracing our fears with love is so life-changing that I want to write a Monday post about it.
Fears are accompanying all of us. Here I am basically talking about repeating situations or tasks which cause anxiety. We need to be aware of the fact that whatever fear we feel arise is homemade! That’s why some people can be totally afraid of something which others don’t even notice. It has to do with all we experienced before, how we perceived it, and what we made (or did not make) of it. The more we accept fear as part of our lives the more we even consider it as a part of ourselves. But in fact, it is only a construct of our thoughts, caused by what we decided to believe – about ourselves and bout life.
There are more than enough reasons which plant fear and self-doubt in a person. A little child is the purest appearance of the combination of a spiritual being and its physical existence. It is in complete alignment with its soul’s plan, with itself, and it is in connection with its higher guidance. Then the physical world takes over. Since it has no experience with life on earth it sucks everything up like a sponge. Although it can feel a tension between its inner knowing and what it is taught about life and about itself it tends to believe the closest people in its life. This thought makes the responsibility of raising children even more serious. We not only have to protect them regarding physical threats. We not only have to prepare them to face this world. We also have to make sure that we let this being unfold in its own way or we will build barriers for it which it has to remove later in his adulthood. Often they are not even aware that there are barriers blocking them but even believe that it has to be that way … here we are again.
Whatever we believe about life is… a belief. Who can really claim to know the truth? We need to follow our own inner guidance in order to find the path that is meant for the individual us. We all have been influenced by so much and will influence others. The good news is that it is ok. Because out of that, we learn exactly what we are meant to learn. That is the reason that we can only be affected by other people’s domination which in the end, leads us to the necessary breakthrough moments. What we don’t need to learn, we won’t notice. Fear is only a sign that there is something meant to overcome. Before we can let our spirit live this life in all its fullness we need to break the wall of fear.
When it is dark and you need to see better. Do you accept the darkness or do you use the option of switching the light on? Light is the opposite of darkness. When you turn on the light the darkness disappears immediately. They cannot exist together at the same time. Love is light and fear (not hatred) is the opposite of love. Check it out, when you are full of love then it is impossible to feel fear at the same time. It may be that when you think of fear that it comes up but that happens because you are thinking destructive thoughts which make love disappear. But a person filled with love can impossibly feel anxious. Again, it is a choice of our thoughts which define how we feel and if we feel separated or connected to who we are. A person who feels love is connected to its divine origin – to who it really is. And once someone is in alignment with who they really are then fear is no option. Aligning with love distances us from the identification with all that comes from the physical worls, and fear part of it. It makes us aware that we are not the game but only playing it. But nothing – NOTHING – can ever harm the light that we are.
Now, when conditions, incidents, or new challenges are causing anxiety then we need to remember that it is only part of this physical life to help us grow into more than we were before. If it is something we really feel uncomfortable with or not ready for, it is your right to say NO or to strike a different path. If it is something we cannot prevent from happening or which we actually even want to happen although we are afraid of then embrace the situation, person, or task with love. Smile at it and perhaps even say thank you to it that it gives you the chance to take another step on your life’s staircase in taking the challenge. You are more than your challenges. You are more than your fears. You are more than your thoughts and beliefs. Don’t judge the situation just embrace it with love. You will experience a warmth and a strength rising up inside of you, filling you completely. All of a sudden, you will find yourself looking down on the challenge and what once felt like a huge wall has shrunk to a simple step. With this power, you generated (YOU generated) you can not only face the current obstacle but every obstacle!
Wrap your fears in love… and the miracle you are can happen!
In Love and Light
