Fear can guide you to deeper understanding when you allow yourself to listen to Fear’s message.
Fear is a misconception about Truth which can become frozen within.
Fear holds within seeds for release.
Fear holds within you strands of panic and pain.
Fear also holds your truth.
This is the message that awaits you.
The challenge is allowing the message not to be overcome by the surrounding panic and pain.
Pain at its core is a subversion of truth.
Physical pain is held within the body when the body is asked to bear what it should not be required to bear.
Emotional pain arises in the midst of any pain when the heart witnesses what should not be required because it goes against individual truth.
Spiritual Pain arises when the Physical and Spiritual natures are out of balance between them and with Universal Life Force.
Fear thus arises from the occurrence of pain, the knowing and memory of pain, and the deep seated desire to avoid pain.
People though often mistake the way in which to deal with fear and pain as either avoidance or denial.
If x happens when y happens, I will now always avoid x and y.
In the initial moments this may be a very reasonable coping strategy, but over time x and y become frozen within you as arrested potential wanting to become form, festering like a sore one would rather, and usually does, ignore.
Frozen energy will push for release and niggle at the edges of your awareness until you have the courage to listen.
The response to fear is not avoidance or denial, but a gentle attention to fear through these questions:
What will allow me to release the frozen energy within, allowing it to complete its journey of potential to form to potential?
What is my fear’s message for me today?
Listen to the message of fear to find your way through.
Listen to fear’s message to find release from fear’s pain.
Listen to the message to find balance and truth.
Let me add:
As someone who has dealt with crippling amounts of fear built up through too many events no one should bear, I do not speak of fear lightly, like it is something easy to put aside or to deal with simply.
Fear can overwhelm you, making it difficult to live life at all.
Like I discuss above, eventually, the way beyond is through, by focusing on the message.
But don’t confuse listening to the message as a requirement to relive the pain.
Sometimes this is necessary, but not always.
And when it is too much to bear alone, find help, find support, someone who will stand witness with you to your message.
A lot of my writing just comes in the moment. I feel an urge rise to put pen to paper. No outline. Not much forethought. Out the words come, all on their own. For me its always an act of mindfulness. A mindful moment.
