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.
