Transcending the Illusion of Fear

Safety is simply an interpretation that there is no threat. It’s the absence of fear – the perception that there is no danger. That, instead there is a challenge… that we can lean into & soar beyond. ~davidji

Hello Spiritual Warriors! & welcome to another issue of The Source – where we work on transcending the illusion of Fear.

F.E.A.R. False. Evidence. Appearing. Real. – a projection of what the future may hold. A guess. A fantasy. A moment where we believe we are clairvoyant of only the worst possible outcome.

Share this with a friend who could benefit from stepping out of fear & keep reading.

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 our fears are the darkest pieces of our imagination. They are the inventions of the part of us that does not trust, so we repeat them like affirmations over and over in our mind until they harden like concrete. And even though our fears 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. And whatever we end up choosing, will become the seed for the next moment, hour, or rest of our day – and ultimately the rest of our life!!!

Through the daily practice where we use the tools of destressifying,  we can align with our own innate 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 instead of the 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 is False. Evidence. Appearing. Real. and can easily be erased by a positive internal conversation.

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 with a fear you are working on right now and how you can replace it with your new vision, your new dream. A new you that is ready to STRUT and create your new world.

Please share this email with as many people as you’d like to help by clicking the share buttons at the bottom of the page.

In the mean time, keep destressifying and let’s merge in the gap together!!!

Peace. -davidji

  1. Thank you Davidji for your kindness and wisdom that you always share …my husband had heart problems last year, and from words spoken to me regarding my husbands health I allowed the FEAR TO CREEP INTO MY HEART.and as it is my body has been effected by these thoughts .. the pain( of fear) will always find a place in your body.
    Thank you for showing me How to resolve this issue, and to be even more aware and responsible for my thoughts. Namaste Jude

  2. Thank you for bringing to light the difference between a real threat and what is otherwise a challenge.

    This gives a different spin on a ‘problem’ I’ve been trying to overcome.

    Light and love to you David. Namaste.

  3. I have had moments of anxiety over the upcoming election. This has really helped me to put my feelings into perspective. I will try to not let fear run my thought process!

  4. Thank you Davidji for all the wonderful uplifting meditations, it is always so special to hear your kindness and understanding about humanity put into words. Love you heaps Annamarie

  5. I have had a Neurological Lyme Disease for quite some time with some pretty dark moments. There seems to be a disconnect between my brain and legs sometimes which makes it difficult to walk. I also have OCD which makes it difficult to move away from featful thoughts. Just beginning to do some affirmations and live more from positive than negative. I have two beautiful children and would love to enjoy life as it is now rather than worrying about future.

  6. David you have helped me so much, my husband going to have a op and I have lower back illness, and I was turning it over and over again and making everything worse for myself. I am going to read what you wrote every morning. I send you divine love from my heart to yours. After talking to a relative of my husband this morning I was shaking but I did calm myself. And then your article appeared.
