We manufacture fear; it’s a product of our ego, and as such, we can learn to extinguish it like a campfire at scout camp. Fear is manufactured by us; fear produces negative energy, and fear is fed by negative energy around us...yet we can make a conscious choice to face our fears, overcome them, and let them go. Making the decision to face our fears is a substantial step forward when it comes to taking control of our lives and accelerating our Spiritual growth.
One of the reasons that fear is able to take hold of us the way it does is because the majority of us try to avoid it, instead of facing it head-on. The Universe gives us whatever we focus on, and if we focus on the things we’re afraid of, that’s what we’ll attract more of into our lives. So, by trying to avoid what we fear, we end up spending a lot of time thinking about what fear, which tells the Universe that this is something we’re interested in and something that we want more of. This is a prime example of why watching our thoughts and words is so important, and it’s an excellent example of the power that we each have to create our reality.
How do we overcome fear? We can overcome our fears by facing them. Facing our fear makes us more powerful and more in control of our lives. Here’s one way to get started:
- Define exactly what it is that you’re afraid of; you have to know what it is in order to neutralize it.
- Once you know what it is you’re afraid of; examine it, recognize it, and then let it go. Stop dwelling on it.
- If you have trouble letting it go, meditate with intention on how to neutralize your fear. Sit down in a quiet place and ask your Higher Self to help you let go of the fear you’re holding onto. Listen for advice and guidance from your Higher Self. Follow what your gut, that little voice within, says to you during your mediation.
- To let your fear go, visualize it leaving you: like a bird flying south for the winter, off goes your fear. You have the power to do this.
Fear comes from within; it’s fed from both within and without. The sooner we acknowledge that we are powerful beings, and that our ego is no match for our soul, the quicker we’ll be able to let go of that fear and move forward. Fear keeps us from becoming all that we can be, all that we’re meant to be, and all that we planned to be during this incarnation. It all comes down to recognizing that we’re powerful beings, and using that power to move ourselves forward.
