Moving Past Fear

There are so many ways to move past fear, and so very many levels of fear.

If a low level of fear is keeping you from doing something that you know is right for you, that you know in your heart you should do, consider this technique shown to me by Spirit this week:

Imagine the scenario that gives rise to the fear in you.  Imagine it unfolding in the manner that you most fear.

Now repeat, repeat, repeat.  Repeat until you imagine it unfolding in a manner that doesn’t bother you–or, even better, it unfolds in a manner to which you respond positively.

Car Wash Your Chakras

If you haven’t cleansed your chakras lately, try this quick, easy, and wonderful method:

Ask Archangel Metatron to do it for you!

If it’s been a while, it feels like going through an internal car wash.  And, it feels oh-so-very-good.

I hope you enjoy it too–and that you then keep it up because you’ll see how simple it is to request, enjoyable it is to experience, and wonderful it is to live out.

Diagnosis or Label: Must it be a choice?

You may know that I have selected, with my husband, to eschew diagnoses and labels–for the most part.

Sometimes, labels are helpful because they are succinct means of conveying a lot of information.  Sometimes that is exactly what we are trying to avoid when we don’t use them–a sense of individuality, of possibility.

On the other hand, a diagnosis is a tool.  It is a means of getting a picture of what you’re up against, what can be done about it, who might be in the same boat as you, how to find the best doctors and treatments to help you, how it might affect your family …

But you can see how that can be for the better or for the worse:  If the information feels limiting, it is.  You will need to reframe how you receive information and what you do with it once you have it.

So, for instance, you can ground and shield before you engage in information-gathering.  Ask that only helpful information reaches your heart and all else is discarded without effect.  If detrimental information reaches you unawares, ask that only that which serves your highest needs remains and all else is removed swiftly and completely.

Additionally, it can be helpful to remind oneself most assuredly that a diagnosis is a framework for understanding and optimizing your life in and through this situation.

It is an opportunity to discover relevant coping techniques, perhaps, while pursuing any healing that helps you reach your highest potential in life.

Moreover, a diagnosis is between you, God, and your doctors–your healers.  Make a conscious choice about how you present your afflictions so that you proclaim only what you know is true for you.

I find it handy to come up with an answer for questions, and for that I tend to stick with biological information:  “Her brain has trouble telling her arms and legs what she wants them to do,” is one example.

Most important is how you speak to yourself about it.  Chin-up, forward-moving self-talk will help you more than the contrary.

If, for instance, you were diagnosed with arthritis, you could write and speak and think and even feel about it in a variety of ways:

I have arthritis.
I am arthritic.
I am struggling with arthritis.
I suffer from arthritis.  [Oh, please don’t!]
I am afflicted with arthritis.

So how might you reframe this to honor your experience but also leave open the opportunity to heal?

Try this on for size:

Arthritis is a temporary part of my life which has given me the opportunity to learn, seek, and heal the deepest parts of myself and my heritage that has always been crying out for help.  I am listening now, and I am actively resolving anything and everything I am guided to heal.

Love heals anything and everything, so bring love to your language for everything, including all your pains and even your yearnings.

Thank you for showing me.

Another opportunity has arrived–pursue it wisely!

How to Make Big Decisions

The simplest way to make big decisions is to decide for _________.

Making a choice in order to avoid, defer, escape [except danger, of course!] typically is not the right move.

So, if you’re considering a job change, is it because you really want the other job or because you dislike something about your current job?  The former is more likely to be worthwhile, whereas the latter is more likely to involve some degree of regret.

Similarly with relationships, if you are considering a choice based on want [i.e., I want to be with this person], you are more likely to feel contented with the decision in the long-term.  If you choose based on not-want [i.e., I do not want to be alone], you are more likely to be discontented in the long run.

This has long been my locus for decision-making, but I was reminded of it recently, watching Help Desk on OWN.  In an episode taped right here in Portland, Oregon, Gary Zukav is giving advice to someone who is deciding between accepting a dream job overseas and staying put to continue a relationship with a woman he’s been seeing for a year.  Ultimately, Gary suggests always choosing for love and not out of fear.  At the end of the episode, he leads those gathered in an exercise designed to help us always sort between feelings that are generated out of love vs. thMyPaintingose generated out of fear so that we might always select for love.

Here’s to loving yourself, your mate, your family, your life, your …

Stuff

Sorting out needs vs. wants?  Haves vs. have nots?  Trying to figure out when it is okay to spend money on something that you do not ‘need’ [i.e., food, clean water, basic clothing, shelter]?

This is the rule of thumb that was given to me by God and has been incredibly helpful to me:  Spend money on that which feeds your soul.

That is different for each person, so maintain it as your guiding principle when purchasing for yourself and for others.  When you give to charity, too.

21 Days of Fantastic: Day 21, Gifts

Imagine how it would feel if God presented you with a gift.  All aglow in His pure love, it would feel so special to receive from Him.

Really special.  Oh, my.

It’s a mini birthday season in my family, so there is a little talk about gifts.  We also have been talking a lot about Our Gifts, the special talents we each have and those that we share.  And then there’s also been talk about being responsible to care for our belongings like we would be for someone else’s.

It all got me thinking about the sacred gifts that God gives us.  Even our bodies are sacred gifts directly from God.  Imagine God handing it to you as a sacred gift.  I don’t know about you, but that resonated deeply with me.  How would I treat a sacred gift from God?  Would I dump on it and treat it as replaceable?  I most certainly would not!  I would hold it precious, nurture it, treat it as special.

So the next time we ate out, I suggested we not indulge in special drinks.  And that felt good, to respect this sacred gift we received directly from God.

I hope that my respect grows and deepens, until I can see and feel deeply that every breath, every moment truly is a gift from above.

21 Days of Fantastic: Day 20, Pockets

Although pockets aren’t a must-have on clothing for me, I use them a lot in life.  You know how people sometimes survive major catastrophes by finding a pocket of air?  I am talking about a rather mundane version of that kind of pocket.

Pockets occur when I can squeeze something in that feeds my soul.

I call them pockets because I first started using these little bits of time where I could fit something small and snug into a small, snug timeslot.  In retrospect, however, I have used life-size pockets lately too.  Here are some examples of pockets:

In a small pocket, I might do a grounding, clearing, heart meditation, or energy healing for someone.  Jumping jacks, stretches, breathing exercises also are examples.  But they also occur when the kids are content and my husband and I can sneak in a moment together.  They are opportunities for something vital and soul-nourishing that can squeeze into a shorter time slot.

I’ve also asked God to use my life as a sort of pocket.  For instance, when my youngest son came along, I was smack in the middle of an advanced homeopathy course that I enjoyed very much.  I only needed two more classes to graduate, but I decided that the family sacrifice was too great at that point for me to persist with the program.  I suspended my participation.

But then I asked God to teach me what I needed to know through life experience.  I learned a lot about remedy selection, dosing, potency, aggravations, and working with Spirit.  I learned as my family and I were treated homeopathically.  I also learned by helping people.  Family, friends … I was helping people frequently with issues ranging from the common cold to much more complicated concerns.  I learned from reading, from listening.

I do believe that I became the homeopath that I am in large part because of this detour in my education.  My structured education was very helpful, too, but much of what makes me a unique homeopath comes from the life-based learning and development of my spiritual gifts.

So, if you aren’t making use of pockets in your life at present, I highly recommend them!

21 Days of Fantastic: Day 19, Know

Life can feel incredibly confusing at times, with choices abounding–these days possibly more than ever before in history.  Did you know that frequency of decision-making is associated with willpower fatigue?  That blew my mind.  No wonder by the end of the day we indulge–skip a workout, have a drink, grab some junk food.

I really enjoy a spontaneous schedule, but it is only enjoyable if we are going with the flow.  Peace comes from within!

It is one of the reasons to prioritize–it is like putting choices through a filter.

It also is one of the reasons to develop your intuition–decision-making becomes a snap.

But then you still are left to trust.

Friends have long wondered how I could make decisions so confidently–I figured it was because after I analyzed the choices, I made the best decision I could.  But one too many disappointments, one too many traumatic experiences finally left me in a state of fear.  I was questioned every decision and felt like I was constantly going in circles.  I was a mess!  It wasn’t just a spiral, it was a downward spiral!

So how did I climb my way out of that?

I made an appointment with my homeopath first.  The remedy he recommended for me pulled me out of a state of crisis.

I reduced external inputs of stress and fear [e.g. news, entertainment].

Then I made an appointment with an energy therapist.

I also started working with angels.  A lot.

Then something miraculous happened:  I began to see signs.  Lots of signs!  Signs that I was on the right path.  Signs that the choices I had made were indeed successful, even if the outcomes were not the ones I’d hoped or expected.

I had prayed frequently and fervently for that sense of knowing that I was on the right path, but until I was in [enough of] a state of calm and peace inside, I couldn’t recognize any signs on the outside.

So if you feel drained at the end of the day from all of the decisions you need to make, reduce the ones that you can, work on clearing your obstacles of fear, and develop your inner sense of knowing.

21 Days of Fantastic: Day 17, Virtualize

When you cannot give someone a hug in person, when you wanna add extra oomph to your hug, or when you want to add a little sumpin sumpin to your prayer, try these two practices ….

You might want to Ground and Protect first.

Send Out Your Heartlight:  I snagged this from a tip Cynthia Slon was giving my daughter for something else.  Hehe.  When I am separated from family or pets and want to give them a hug, or if I want to add extra comfort to a  hug I’m giving to someone who is distraught, I virtualize my hug.  I imagine a golden light emanating from my heart like a beacon toward the other person’s heart then enveloping them like a hug or even an orb.

Try it first on someone in the room with you.  I just told my husband I was going to try something and wanted to know how he felt.  He sat there, I sent him a heartlight hug, and he said it felt relaxing.  Nothing wrong with that!

[By the way, I suspect that it is really just sending out God’s light of love that exists in all of us and connects all of us ….]

Blessing Sprinkles:  When I see someone who clearly needs help, I pray that the needed help is provided and that the person opens up to receive it. I also visualize blessings sprinkling on them like golden light sprinkles of Holy Water.  [This is a variation on a gratitude sprinkle from Rhonda Byrnes’ book, The Magic, a 28-day introduction to gratitude practices.]

Try it on someone in the room with you first–my husband said it felt tingly the first time I tried it, and the second time he said he felt the same kind of relaxing feeling as the Heartlight Hug.

Enjoy!

21 Days of Fantastic: Day 16, Intuit

My life is so much easier because I can access my intuition for any number of choices.  I highly recommend it, even if only for selecting gifts, books, or wine!

Here’s the simplest, most replicable version of how I do it:

Protect and Ground.

Take a deep breath.

Keep your mind empty.

Present yourself a statement in the negative and the positive.  Start with a question to which you already know the answer: your name, your birthday.  Present yourself with a wrong answer.  Notice how you feel in response.  Present yourself with the correct answer.  Notice how you feel in response.

When you get that aaaah, just right feeling, it is the ideal.  So when you are using your intuition to select something, generally speaking, the closer you get to that feeling, the closer that choice is to ideal.
