Fear. F.E.A.R. False. Evidence. Appearing. Real.
A projection of what the future may hold. A guess. A wish. A moment where we believe we are clairvoyant.
And yet we hold our fears to be as real as the reality of this moment. They freeze us. They frighten us. They hold us back from moving forward. They hold us in this fantasy world where we believe that what we’ve made up will indeed come to pass. They are as real to us as anything that’s actually happened.
But they are the darkest pieces of our imagination. They are the inventions of the part of us that does not trust. And so we repeat them like affirmations over and over in our mind until they harden like concrete. And even though they may never come to pass, we hold onto them with deep faith, so that if they do happen, we prove ourselves right and if they don’t come true, we have become so fixed on them that we are blind to the beauty that does unfold.
Fear obscures the opportunity that sits right before us. Fear colors every thought that has the potential to sprout into magnificence. As the Buddha said, “All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we create our world.”
And when we convince ourselves that what we want to happen won’t and what we don’t want to happen will, then we become a victim of our fantasies.
But we are better than that. We are stronger than that. We are more capable and blessed than we give ourselves credit for – and when we surrender to fear it is because we don’t trust. We don’t trust in the divine…we don’t trust our choices…and we don’t trust ourselves to make right decisions. There is a struggle within each of us where the worst possible scenario battles the best possible scenario for attention in a given moment. But we must remind ourselves that we have a choice in each moment…that we can choose the best outcome or the most painful outcome. When we meditate, it brings us to a place of pure, perfect, wholeness where we can make choices without the conditioned negativity of our past. We can make choices from an abundance mentality rather than a poverty consciousness. We can direct our thoughts to the land of pure potentiality or to a place of limiting beliefs.
And so when we find ourselves questioning our judgment. When we hear the voice in our head telling us we are less than or not worthy, we need to know that the word TRUST can be re-configured into STRUT! And that’s how we step into our Power…by giving yourself permission to strut, to believe again, to open our heart to the possibility that whatever negativity you can dream up can easily be offset by a positive message.
Simply use the mantra, “When I let go of who I am, I become who I might be” and you will find yourself trusting more, dying to the past, and STEPPING into your power. How about we try it just for the week. Send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org with a fear you are working on right now and let’s see if we can replace it with your new vision, your new dream. A new you that is ready to STRUT and create your new world.
