No doubt you have heard the statement, ‘you are always coming from either fear or love, you cannot come from both at the same time, choose’.
It is far too common for people to allow fear to be the igniter for their decisions. Much of the time, when we are not even realizing it. We CANNOT let fear win, ever. (It never does.) LOVE is the only winner.
This is being revealed in our every day lives. Fear is where we go when we deny our own Divinity. Fear is where we go when we believe anything or anyone else says rather than check in with our own intuition and inner guidance, rather than when we choose to rely on God.
Fear is the greatest distraction from our Divinity. It is the ONLY distraction.
I know a woman who once stopped acupuncture, which she LOVED, because her doctors told her acupuncture was bad for her cancer diagnosis. She just did it. She never questioned it. After one prompting, she was AFRAID to do something that made her feel wonderful. I was stunned, totally perplexed. It is amazing to me how often we fail to check in with our Higher Selves first, or to to even TRUST our intuition in the face of fear, to TRUST that feeling good and enjoying something (proven to be healthy, beneficial, not going on unhealthy binges), in the midst of a life threatening illness could possibly be bad.
I feel my fire come up whenever I hear from a client, ‘my doctor told me not to do this, so I stopped.’ Or ‘I can never do that again, it is bad for me.’ It riles my faithful heart to hear people place so much value in what another person says, rather than their own Divine accessibility. It MIGHT be the right answer for you, but CHOOSE it because it feels RIGHT to you, be in alignment with it, NOT because someone else said so. Then, you are coming from fear, feeling miserable and blaming another for how you feel, because they told you so. Coming from love, you get to the place of, this is my choice – and you will not be carrying fear! Never go against, go WITH.
Whatever anyone says, do not make it I was told I can never…..blah, blah, blah. I was told I will not live longer than…………..I was told I have to take this medication even though……………….I was told this is the only way…………….
When we feel positive, our bodies respond to this. When we feel fear, our bodies respond to this. Basic, basic, basic.
I am afraid I will get this, so I will choose to do that. I am afraid I will get the flu, so I will get a shot. I am afraid to be alone so I will stay with you. I am afraid I am not good enough, so I will stay in this horrible job. I am afraid I cannot afford it, so I will not let myself dream. I am afraid to loose my job so I will not speak up. I am afraid you will yell so I will not share how I really feel. I am afraid you will blame me so I will hide. I am afraid you will not forgive me, so I will never tell you the truth. I am afraid, I am afraid, I afraid.
Please, do not let fear win. I cannot express this enough. People act out when afraid. People act from within when coming from love. Practice listening to what your motivation is. If it is fear, practice having faith in good, faith in possibilities, faith in God to carry, to Light your way. Practice having faith in YOUR choices, in yourself.
