What most of us need to realize is – we have a very intimate relationship with fear. A relationship where fear is in control. Fear is who you put first. Fear overrides your own Truth.
Because fear is what we all know. It’s what we’ve been taught to stay “safe”. And, even though fear keeps you stuck in misery – it feels familiar – it feels like protection. False protection, but protection none the less.
Someone said to me the other day, if you say – “I’ve always been afraid of x, y or z “- then what do you think you will manifest in the future? If you say it’s always been this way (in the past) — aren’t you stating, it’s always going to be that way in the future?
Fear is so entrenched in all of us that most don’t realize that its not your Truth. It’s not your destiny either, but again, it’s been the reality that you’ve *known*.
Fear tells you what you want will never happen. It tells you that you aren’t worthy of what you truly want. It convinces you that who you’ve known yourself to be in the past – is who you’ll always be. Fear keeps you stuck and gripped in a place of non-action. Or, it keeps you stuck in a place of constant action. The energy of fear makes you feel worried, frenzied, and restless – as if something terrible is about to happen at any moment – the other shoe is going to drop, and you need to be ready.
Fear is the energy of non-peace. And, becoming aware of the energy of fear – and how it’s been the primary driver of your life – is the first step. The second step is to realize that there is another way to BE.
This other way to BE, is to learn the art of trust and surrender – and rather feeling like you always need to be in control and *know* what’s going to happen next,to rather allow things to unfold in the way in which they are meant -to vs. the way in which you *think* they should.
Easier said than done, I know.
To start this process and new way of being – allow yourself to surrender your mind’s version of how you *think* your life should look based on the expectations that you have. Then, rather than feel like you need to know your next step – or what to do, etc. – give the reins over to the Universe for a change. Allow yourself to be guided by Truth vs. the fear of something not happening.
The biggest realization I had going into this year is when my own coach said to me: “You’re trying to create your life and it’s not yours to create.” Whoa – that hit me between the eyes – because I know that is the Truth.
The Truth is: your destiny isn’t something you can conjure up in your mind. Your destiny is what your soul has already agreed to – and it’s pulling you towards it each day. Your job is to listen, trust and be present in the moment in order to hear it’s guidance.
But, if you allow fear to be in charge, then you’ll always be afraid of what you’ve always been afraid of – and then nothing can change. In other words, as someone said to me, as long as your reality has to go off what fear says, fear will win.
A different reality is trying to choose you, your choice is, will you allow it or stop it? One is letting your soul guide you and the other is letting fear be in charge. Which will you choose? Remember, choose yourself first and you’ll always make the best choice.
