Goodness is all around but I am consumed by fear
Fear of not being enough, fear of being alone
Fear of aging, fear of not being lovable
Fear of living in poverty, without joy
I get totally caught up with all my fears
They loom just in the background
Then they pounce upon the scene
Catching me off guard and unprepared
I usually then just crumble and enter darkness
Give in to the power of the fears
Wallow in them a few days, overeating, self-bashing
Until I somehow come into greater balance
This endless cycle is the dark side of me
I seem to always be trying to avoid facing the fears
Trying to hide from them so they won’t “get me”
But really the fears keep erupting over and over again
I am not my fears
But goodness knows they run me
I want to outpace every one of my fears
Escape to a fearless space of balance
How to begin?
How to get rid of these obsessions?
How to be my best, fearless self?
How to pull more of my goodness to the forefront?
If this is even a tiny bit of where you are, turn to your eternal self. That is found inside, in the quietness, in the listening part of you. That part of you that is beyond the body and mind, and beyond the doing. That part of you that is eternal and always connected to the Greater Whole.
Every single one of you has this part of you within. But it stays in the background until you seek more balance, more peace and more fear free living. Consciously stop doing, enter into stillness and breathe. Try doing this lying down. When you begin to feel a quietness, soak that energy in and let it fill your entire being. As the quietness and breathing begin to settle you, bring your most fearful energy forward for rebalancing.
Consciously bring the fear energy into the Lightness you are experiencing. Call for that fear to clear your energy field from wherever you first took it into you. Call for it to be transformed by the Silence, the Balance and the Wholeness you are experiencing. Give thanks and return to the tranquil space you are creating for yourself.
Do this often. It works. It is one way to fear free living.

Beautiful I just had a fear based reptilian reaction the other day and was so taken aback – it had been so long since I experienced that. It is hard to imagine living in that space continually ( which I did for decades).
thanks Robbins for your help. Your really helped me shift from this. ( Mostly!) beautiful.
