Fear is the withholding of Love
from yourself and usually another. While in college, I chose
to give up my music degree and career in order to marry. I was
afraid to succeed in music. Ego offered me many justifications
for my decision. I used all of them. The truth
is that I did not trust my talent and withheld Love
Love is the opposite of fear. Love is All
There Is. Everything is
Love. God is Love.
I am Love. Fear is
Love. Fear is Love in a contracted form
At the time of my decision to avoid taking responsibility for
my musical gift, I was in denial around my fear of success (or
failure). I had little Self-Love.
I did not know I was Love and Soul.
I was not aware I was ego, either. I was spiritually
fast asleep. I buried my fear, but fear held me captive. Ego
is fear-based. Ego ran my life.
How then does fear
get stuck in our minds, our emotions, our actions, our cells?
Our parents imprinted us with fear just as their parents imprinted
them. We pass fear on to our children through example. The child
can not speak for itself, accepting what parents say and do as
truth. The child is taught self-loathing instead of Self-Love.
Good students that we are, we found fear to
be a useful control tool. When not controlling through fear,
we are victims to its paralyzing energy. Inertia sets in. We
are afraid to change. Fear
begets more fear until we are confronted with a fear so overpowering
we call out to Soul for help. Now we are now ready to change.
We are ready to listen to Soul.
Only when Love
is present can we begin to transform fear. Soul guides us to
change our perception of fear. Soul teaches that fear is a contracted
Love. Through Soul's guidance, fear is gently transformed into
Love. Soul gives us
the patience and persistence to practice loving our fear/our
ego. We develop Self-Love
and self-awareness. We find that we can look in the mirror and
say, "I Love and accept myself, (my name), just the way
I am." If we accept the lesson offered by Soul, we can begin
to embrace our ego, our fear. Remember fear is an ego energy.
Soul does not know fear. Soul knows only Love.
Love radiates from Soul.
I am Soul filled. I radiate Love.
Long ago, as a music student, I made a decision
not to trust my talent. Today I accept and honor that decision.
All decisions are in Divine
Order. I am the person I am today because of all the experiences
I have had. All my choices, including marriage and a family.
These were impeccable decisions. Through them I was presented
with all the lessons I needed for beginning my process of Awakening.
Today I am grateful to Soul
for continuing to bring my negative thoughts and feelings to
my attention. I give thanks for Soul guiding my Consciousness
so that I may change my negative thoughts and feelings.
I Love and accept
myself just as I am. I Love myself because I have allowed myself
to feel the fear and
accept the fear, and transform the fear. I am the transformed
fear. I am Love.
