When It's Scary Up In Here
Fear doesn’t fly with happily ever after.
It just doesn’t.
We know that, and yet, staying out of fear is sometimes easier said than done.
Like when it seems something bad is coming for you …
Could be the doctor’s prognosis, the boss’ decision, the bank’s foreclosure … whatever you’re in fear of is easy to believe it’s inevitable and there’s nothing you can do about it.
Except – there is.
There is something you can do about it.
You can stop being party to the contrast you don’t want. You don’t have to let it just carry you along straight to your demise (or what looks like your demise).
You can change your mind.
You can choose something different.
You can remember who you are and you can use your powers to create what you prefer.
We are never out of power. We are never stuck in what we don’t want.
Not when we know how to choose otherwise, anyway.
And you know how to change your mind. You do it all the time.
You can do it here, too.
You can remember that you’re calling these shots.
You can remember that you create your reality.
You can remember that all you have to do is change your thought, to change your vibration, and that changes what happens next.
It’s never over; it’s never done; it’s never lost.
You can have what you want.
The other day when a friend asked what I was up I told the scary story of what I was trying not to experience.
I told it like it was inevitable. I told it like it was unavoidable. It was happening to me and there was nothing I could do about it.
And she said, “That’s not happening.”
She said it with confidence.
She said it like she meant it.
She said it as a friendly slap across the face when I’d lost my manifesting mind.
And she repeated it when I stuck to my story about how inevitable this unwanted thing was.
And then I remembered, of course, I would never create that.
I would never create that!
I know too much.
And in that moment it seemed obvious. I just needed to choose what I wanted.
I just needed to stop feeling like this thing was happening that I didn’t want, and remember that I’m in charge here.
And I didn’t pick anything different in that red hot moment.
I wasn’t there yet.
But I let that new thought start to grow within … I let it gain a little more power.
I let it grow a little bit before I acted on it.
I remembered who I am: a powerful conscious creator who knows how to think a new thought.
I remembered that everything could just as well be fine as it could be cowsh*t.
And then I geared up to decide that it would be fine.
I didn’t know how it would be fine – yet.
But I don’t have to know how. (That’s not my job.)
I just have to be willing to decide.
I just have to be willing to drop the fear of what I don’t want.
When I stop feeling like this is inevitable, I create an opening for Universe to do it different.
And when I get on board by being willing to feel different – even just releasing fear and feeling empowered and capable again – then I’m home free.
Maybe I get there by realizing, “Hey, this thing I thought was so scary, not such a big deal. Why would I scare myself like that? That’s kind of ridiculous when you think about it.”
I’m an eternal being. Nothing can ever go wrong for me. The system is rigged for my happily ever after. I literally can’t go wrong!
And knowing that changes everything.
It’s worth remembering that all we have to do to avoid whatever we’re most afraid of is stay out of fear.
Because in fear we have no power.
Remember who you are. Remember what you’re capable of.
You know what you want, and you know how that feels.
Take a deep breath – or three, shake out the fear, and then dial on what you want.
Do whatever feels best after that, and you’re golden.
Use your power, fellow creator. You’ve got this.
