What the ?!*?!@! happened to my serenity

Sometimes or often, I find myself out of sorts. Searching perhaps for the bit of serenity I had yesterday that seemed to make all the sense in the world, at that time. However, at the moment I am scrappling with bills or some bit of news or something I said or did that I am not proud of and that serenity has disappeared without a trace. For me, the only way back is to come to a basic idea of being either in “faith” or “fear”.

This tiny little idea, not my own of course, but one I have borrowed from many sources, can make all the difference. If I am not feeling serene or at peace, chances are that I have picked up “fear” and have dropped the “faith” I have in the universe. Once I have clarified what I am in fear of, the work begins.

This may sound simplistic, but it works for me. I fear economic insecurity, losing those I love, losing my job, or my home. It is then that I can work on shifting my thinking and my energy to that of “faith”. Creating or manifesting what it is that I want, instead of what I do not want.

My psychology background and my dabblings with the laws of attraction tell me that what I focus on what will be what I create or manifest for myself. Being stuck in fear, all my thoughts are on what I don’t want and can create a situation that can look like evidence that my fears are valid. However, I know from experience that if I shift my “fears” into positive “faith-filled” thoughts or statements that doors open for opportunities and experiences that seem magical in nature.

I struggle with my thoughts. Thoughts connected to ego and material things that I believe define who I am. I lose sight of what is true and become connected to “who I am” in the sense of how others view and see me. My experiences become blurred by what others have to say about them and not the experience itself.

It is when I let go of all the fear, that faith and serenity reappear, instantaneously.

  1. Thank you for directing me in a better direction. I did forget that we create what we manifest. Fear has away of controlling our day to day lives. It’s sad and scary to know that we create our own chaos sometimes. Looking forward to regaining Faith.
