Fear in the past is resentment. Fear in the present is anger. Fear in the future is worry.
Do you have a fear you want to clear out of your life? Good! Because fear is part of an upside down green sky world, which doesn’t serve you towards living your most happy, purposeful best today.
Fear is based in a lack of control, helplessness, victim mentality. When you feed fear, you starve peace. Fear is always accompanied by anxiety, confusion, and lack of hope.
Fear does not contain any faith. Faith evaporates fear, because faith knows a Higher Power, God, Universe (whatever is working for you in this moment) is a greater source which loves and cares for you unconditionally. When you know you are being loved, watched over, and protected, you automatically feel more safe, empowered, and inspired.
Think of when you were a child. Did you worry about where your next meal would be coming from? Stress out over having clothes to wear? Did you worry about what you even looked like? No. You lived in the present moment, and trusted the adults, your parents, were supplying the necessities you needed without even realizing you wanted them.
The cure for worry then, is rooted in faith. So how then, do you get more faith?
Famous Clear the Fear Recipie:
1. Identify a time in your past when you worried.
2. List what you worried might happen.
3. Write down what actually did happen.
If you’re like me, many of the negative outcomes you thought would happen, never did. And if they did happen, you still survived. This leads to the grand finale step of them all.
4. Are you still alive to talk about it?
You see, if you have overcome the worst case scenario fear based result, regardless of how severe the fear, you have survived. If you have survived, you have overcome the worst result possible: death. Even then, many would argue death is not the worst event in your life.
Fear is false, because it is something which hasn’t happened yet. It is a feeling, and feelings are not factual, they just occur as a result of a thought.
Feelings –> Thoughts –> Behaviors;
and the circle continues in an endless cycle of infinity.
If you want to get rid of a fear, face it head on with faith. Prove to yourself your faith is alive, by reminding yourself of factual past events where your fears never came to appear.
Remember, you have been divinely watched over to make it this far in your life, with and without all these obstacles you still survived. The Divine is on your side!
