No More Fear

Fear 1Along my journey, I have experienced the onslaught of fear.  Defenseless, I capitulated to the circumstances and was left defeated.  Fear has caused me to become paralyzed and other times I vacillated like a pendulum on an old grandfather clock feeling isolated and controlled like the cuckoo bird inside.

Some say fear is false evidence appearing real. I have heard fear described as a sickness that rots the soul. If the aforementioned are true, then that would suggest that fear originates from an external source and is not part of our truest essence. In other words, fear is not a part of us but a mindset that is assumed when we are disconnected from self and underestimate our innate ability to be successful. Fear is the result of focusing on lack and creates a less than reality.Fear 2

What is it that you want to do but are unwilling to do because of fear? Common sense and prudence shouldn’t be thrown into the wind. However, misplaced judgment from others, imagined consequences, and the doubt of the unknown should not dictate our actions.  The universal law of cause and effect has a much greater return than we realize. Our causes or individual actions create known in the unknown. We are creating our own realities through the law of attraction whether we realize it or not with our thoughts, activities and words. The universe works with us in our life’s passions and pursuits of purpose.

The following helped me to overcome fear along my journey. Maybe they will help you too. (1) No one else’s opinion about me matters more than my own. (2) I am responsible for my own happiness. (3) It is imperative to stand in my  own truth no matter how unpopular it may be. (4) I must joyfully embrace my uniqueness and individuality. I am supposed to be different (5) The knowledge I have now is enough for today. I know what I know and I don’t know what I don’t know and its okay.

It’s impossible to change what we do not acknowledge. Recognizing the presence of fear in our lives can be liberating. Honestly, recognizing fear is the first step toward the process of becoming a fearless being. Identify the origin of fear in your life. It may be necessary to go back generationally. Patiently remove the fear with truth. Confidently declare—no more fear! Truth will remove the stains of fear from your soul. Continuing to live with fear is a choice. Yes, living fearlessly is possible and the illusion of hope and faith are not required to do so.

In peace and love,

Authentic thoughts are thoughts that are genuine and sincerely expressed. Authentic thoughts reverberate with other authentic individuals so they have an irresistible urge to ponder and or respectfully respond from their  own unique perspective.

 Overcome fear by making a post. Express and share your authentic thoughts.
