A common current message in the collective lately is don’t be in fear. If you understand fear is a contraction and contrary to your flow, you can see that fear is not a forward moving energy. But simply telling others not to be in fear is not necessarily helpful if they do not have the tools to move beyond that fear. In fact, it can put them into a deeper state of powerlessness because they will know that the fear is not helpful but they will feel even worse about themselves for not being able to shift out of that fear. It puts them into even deeper resistance to themselves and their emotions that are simply seeking acknowledgement and healing.
Fear is simply an activation that occurs when a part of you feels unsafe. Berating yourself or others for that natural feeling will only compound the feeling of the lack of safety. You simply cannot resist anything into healing because healing is a flow and resistance is contrary to flow. So what do you do about fear?
The first thing to do is to ground into your present moment. The vast majority of the time your fear is a projection into the future but the reality is you are fine in your now moment. Using your awareness to notice all the things that are working for you in your present moment takes you out of the energies of the wounds of the past and the unknowns of the future. Breathe. Find the things that are supporting you and feel the safety that exists for you in that moment.
When fear rears up it is because there is a part of you, an inner child aspect or fragment, that is desperate for your love, attention, and protection. Imagine that little aspect of self. What does he or she need from you? What did they need that they didn’t get that you are now fully capable of providing as an adult now? Hear them. Acknowledge them. They have had to get really loud to get your attention. Now that they have it the healing can begin. Open your arms and gather them up and feel the relief they experience when they are accepted and reintegrated into your loving care.
Fear can also activate when the future is unknown. The way to settle this fear is to deepen into your faith and trust. Work with your guides. Use the divine combination of surrender, faith, flow, and trust to navigate the new energies. Be willing to receive. Start to open to the idea that change can bring in wonderful things for you. Remind yourself that you are a piece of God, and as such, precious and cherished and lovingly guided at all times. Align with higher vibrational energies in whatever ways help remind you of your own wisdom and connection.
The way beyond fear is to lovingly shepherd yourself forward as the wise and conscious adult you have grown into. Big changes don’t have to be done all at once, but rather by making your best choice one now moment at a time. Call on your higher guidance, give the parts of yourself the love and reassurance they need as they need it, and simply take one empowered step at a time and you will be amazed at how calmly and confidently you can start to navigate your world. ~Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young
