“The big lesson in life, baby, is never be scared of anyone or anything.”– Frank Sinatra
We cannot touch fear. It is only an emotion and emotions are energy. So how then can this one emotion exert be such a huge force in our lives? When I was in college, I took a job to help meet expenses. I had to wear white to work and I walked as the building was close to campus. I noticed a car following me as I walked down the sidewalk. I walked faster and the car kept going faster. I cut through a parking lot of one of the campus buildings and ran up the stairs. He pulled right up to the stairs. I was yelling for help and fortunately there were two people playing tennis on the court next to the building. They came toward me and yelled at the driver, who then left. I filed a police report and was told that someone had been targeting nurses in the area and I was dressed in white so could have been mistaken for a nurse . For at least a decade I suffered from nightmares where I relived the scenario and woke up trying to scream but no sound would come out. It is syndrome known as frozen fright. Although fear is intangible, its impact is profound.
Dear Angels, fear’s effects are palpable. It is the knot in the stomach before a big decision, the racing heartbeat in the face of uncertainty, and the hesitance that holds us back from the unknown. Even without a concrete shape, fear's influence colors our thoughts, actions, and emotions. As much as we state that fear is not real, when we are faced with something that frightens us we can be thrown off balance.
Dear Ones, you may not be able to touch fear, but you can navigate its turbulent waters, ensuring it doesn't affect your emotional equilibrium. Being in balance doesn't mean that you are eliminating fear, just that you are taking back your control of how much it interferes with your life. See the fear for what it is, an emotion. Take a moment to step back and breathe. The breath will connect you into your power, which is Divine love. Allow the love to elevate your frequency, thus bringing you back into balance. The power of fear is in your body’s response to its energy. By controlling the breath and staying in the love energy of your heart, you can determine your response to fear.
Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.
Today, I promise to see fear very clearly for what it is and how I can control my response to it.
