Truly fear has such a hold over the world, over each one of us. We think it is so real. Fear is false evidence appearing real. Worry is a deeply ingrained habit for many people – and yet worry is simply negative affirmation. It depletes the worrier and is of no help to the one worried about. Why not pray for the person you are worried about? I also ask ArchAngel Michael to protect someone I could be pulled to worry about and then I practise trust. Worry is of no help to anyone and simply causes a sense of powerlessness. Anxiety, too, is so prevalent.
I will often say to myself, do not give in to fear, Gill. Fear grows and increases in strength as we feed it. It disempowers us, limits us, paralyses us.
It’s very important to become aware of your fears – to write about them in your journal, what they are and why these things bring up fear for you. Our fears control us so long as we avoid looking at them and dealing with them. Avoidance is fear’s best friend.
Fear is the effect of our belief that we are a physical body, an ego, separate. We have forgotten who we are and why we are here. We can’t really begin to change the hold fear has over us until we choose to take on our Spiritual path and connect with our Soul, our Higher Self and the purpose of life.
When you begin to connect daily and frequently with your Higher Self and ask for help and guidance, you begin to understand how you are never alone, you are never on your own. You are always loved, supported and guided. When you see every lesson as a challenge and opportunity to grow, you learn more and more about the love, wisdom and power that are within you – but you need to claim them and build them. When you deny the fear thought entry to your mind and instead choose to focus on and build love, trust, peace and so forth, your connection to your Soul and all the powers of your Soul, grows and strengthens.
The soul is imprisoned in the physical body so long as we believe and live as if we are a physical body and separate. When we begin to connect with our Soul and practise Soul energies such as love, joy, peace, gratitude, abundance and so forth, we begin to live as a Soul and to experience life through the perspective of our Soul. This is who we are.
