Each of us is at a unique stage in our understanding of Life, how we got where we are, what the problem is, and how to rectify it.
Panic attacks, anxiety, depression, insomnia, phobias, aggression, substance abuse, compulsive disorders…all ways of dealing with and experiencing fear, both emotionally and physiologically.
Fear ruins lives because emotions have physical manifestations. Negative emotions can and do cause dormant genes to express and cause dis-ease.
If any one of us can say we have “NO FEAR”… I posit that you may need to revisit your definition of what FEAR actually is.
One common acronym is “False Evidence Appearing Real”, and that would be correct, but being able to label Fear when we experience it so we can let it go and calm the heart and mind is something else.
A regular meditation practice does wonders for Fear—that, and knowing we are not alone; that we are all One. No one is in this by themselves, and as the slumbering ones gradually awaken, the One grows exponentially.
I think D and Sophia do a good job of illuminating the emotion of Fear. I share it in hopes that we all make a more concerted effort to transmute it—because Fear is NOT innate and there is no need to punish ourselves with this powerful emotion that is the polar opposite of LOVE, emotionally and energetically speaking. We can’t feel one at the same time we feel the other.
No one can intimidate us unless we “let them”. It’s a conscious choice, and a muscle that requires regular exercise lest we succumb to the manipulation and strangle our Spirit. To live in fear robs those we love of the experience of the True US—who we really are. What sculpts who we show to others? Is it Fear? Or is it Love?
When we eliminate Fear, we usher in Love… and Peace…and the freedom to BE—in all our authentic magnificence.

Written by my lovely friend Sophia. This struck me as very NOW. I have been talking about FEAR with my kids and with several other friends.
Fear is generated as a Psy-Ops against the people. Keep them in Fear so that they are so preoccupied with dealing with the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual side effects they’ll never notice that you’ve stolen their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies right out from under them.
Government = fear
Authority = fear
Religion = fear
Education = fear
Medical = fear
The use of FEAR has been a constant attack on us our whole lives- the ultimate control by those who would place themselves above you.
We are all ONE. We are all EQUAL.
No person has the Right to Control you. So Don’t let them Control you.
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”

It is up to us now to become free.
Yesterday I identified fear, took note and contemplated what it means. It did not occur while being chased by a wild beast. It occurred in my automobile, on a quiet street, early morning, just outside a school. The sun was shining. The sky was blue. I was warm and dry and driving well within the posted speed limit. Then I spotted a police car. It was parked off to the side. In my gut a bloop of panic erupted and cascaded up to my brain where it registered; fear.
This was a “school zone” and it is swarming with speed traps. I don’t exceed the limit because of it and yet the part of me that feels panic got triggered anyway. Why?
Fear is a control mechanism. We have learned well. It keeps us docile, aging, needy and quiet. It is neither necessary nor desired. It is based on a non-truth; someone else holds authority over your actions, indeed, over you. This is so engrained as to be unquestioned. Many consider it truth. It is not.
Looking at fear from a distance, it is immobilizing and knee-jerk. Consciousness exposes the option of fearless. It is not one we’ve considered before. Fear makes sense as a spark to get us running from physical harm, and only then. It exists to ignite adrenaline. Fear makes no sense when confronting “make believe”.
As children, we may have been afraid of the dark, afraid it would hurt us. Then we understood the room didn’t change without light, it was only our perception and imagination that made it scary.
We are learning to turn on our light. The tales of power by an imaginary “other”, often wearing a uniform and/or title, are meant to keep us in the dark – afraid, docile, compliant and unquestioning. It is up to us to expose the fraud, turn on our light and tell our gut to pipe down – all is well.
The papers have been filed to legally declare our freedom; it is true. Yet with fear of any kind of authority – the shackles are still in place.
In order to really be free, it must be felt in every moment of our lives. As we adjust we will notice the moments that ignite panic. One day they won’t. For now we can deal with them as markers – pointing the way to what needs our focus.
For once we see ourselves as free; the ferocity of our spirit will hold steady our authority – regardless of who is in the room. It is this state we are heading towards. Absolute conviction is untouchable. As we set our sights on the truth of who we are, we’ll notice moments of who we have been, of who we are not. This is good; awareness facilitates clarity.
Your truth is absolute. You are a living breathing fragment of Source in every way equal to any “other”. You are beholden to none. There are none more important than you and none your worth surpasses. We are One.
Love every particle because it’s all part of the package. The really great part of this is that it is yours. As you see it, recognize it, absorb it and re-work it – your spirit is fortified. You own it. No one has given it to you and no one can take it away.
You are the One you’ve been waiting for.
BE FREE! FREE TO BE…OPPT IN
