Fear

Has fear settled into your heart and mind? It can suck your soul right out of your body, drain your hope, distract you from your life’s purpose, rob your of happiness, turn you against your friends, sap your strength, and dim your light.

When you gain perspective on your fears, you will learn to discern the false fear of the mind that keeps you debilitated and small, and the real fear of the body and instincts that will keep you safe and help you act when real danger threatens you.

Some would use false fear as a weapon of mass disempowerment. A weapon to keep you in line, to control and contain and diminish your spirit.

Dear ones, I ask you to gather your courage, to call back your power, the inner spiritual power that fuels your life, and look the fear right in the eye. See it for what it is – a product of the mind and ego.

Will you do what you are called to do? Will you acknowledge your fear, then speak confidently in front of a large group, travel to a foreign land, apply for a new job, or speak out when an injustice has occurred? Will you share your gifts with others even though you may be ridiculed? Will you stand up for those who are weaker than you? Will you speak your truth to the powerful?

Like the “Great and Powerful Oz”, when you pull back the curtain, you will see and know the fear for a puff of smoke that’s been magnified and blown out of proportion. You will discover that it is an illusion that will fade when brought to the light and examined.
