What do we mean when we say fear? Anything that keeps you from inner peace!
Wikipedia says: Fear can be described with different terms in relation to the
degree of fear that is experienced. It varies from mild caution to extreme phobia
and paranoia. Fear is related to a number of additional cognitive and emotional
states including worry, anxiety, terror, horror, panic, and dread. Experiences of fear
are, by their very nature, impacting and, in this way, can remain in the unconscious
mind long after exposure; where they may then manifest as nightmares.
A friend said to me the other day, “Fear has been the atmosphere on this Earth for
many years.” I gasped at the truth and ramifications of this.
We as one, were taught to beware vs. be aware.
Fear has been used as a mechanism which motivated and inspired us to move
forward to bring out the better/higher of ourselves. Thankfully, there are now many
more " well-being" ways to bring out our best. Fear... in essence... is becoming , if
not already, obsolete. :o))))
Fear has been a Gatekeeper to the unknown. It stood at the doorway of every
decision you have made in your life. It asked, “Are you sure you are making the
best choice??????” It promised safety, by offing you its perspective of possible
outcomes, then whispered..."You may not have thought of everything that could go
wrong and then consistently reminded you of failings from the past. Never ever
really being much help at all.
Fear’s vibrations sit on the line between here and there. Fear can only have the
appearance of reality. Fear has no substance/truth, in the now moment. It only
has the use of past memories and or probable futures to make It self seem real..
Fear teaches, to be more aware in the present moment.
Fears job was to show us who we are, by showing us who we are not. Thanks Fear!
Next time you notice feeling a little fear (worry, concern) take a BIG conscious
breath and become familiar with the Moment you are in. The Fear Fades! Wait a
little longer and then ideas you would not have thought of will come in to offer
peace and solution.
