When I was a young girl, I remember sitting on the couch watching the news with my dad. I also remember the day I realized that my nightmares and restless sleep was directly related to the negative news reports I was watching right before I went to bed. It was unsettling to me, and I chose from that moment that watching the news was not good for me. It depleted me of light. It fostered fear and uneasiness about the world around me. I did not feel safe when I watched the news, and I worried about things a young person does not need to worry about.
Fear can bring us down, hold us back, and keep us stuck, but I learned at an early age that love and light are always stronger than fear. Over the years I have come face to face with many fears. Fear has some trusty companions - worry and doubt. They run around together wreaking havoc in our hearts and minds. They can destroy good thoughts and twist anything good we once noticed about ourselves into shame and judgement. They even have the power to change how we feel about others and deplete us of compassion, love, and forgiveness. And when our hearts and minds are worn down from worry, doubt, and fear, worry and doubt can move on to wreak havoc on our bodies. Have you ever gotten sick when you have been stressed out?
I have had PLENTY of run-ins with fear, worry, and doubt over the years. In fact, I know them well. They used to REALLY keep me running around in circles, angry, and discouraged. I often had feelings of being "stuck" in my life because fear, worry, and doubt knew just how to keep me from being motivated, to reach my goals. I began to be tired of feeling "stuck." I began to talk to people who seemed to have it together and who were accomplishing their goals and dreams. They all had one thing in common: they were more connected to love and light than fear, worry, and doubt. One friend in particular had the courage to teach me about how she let go of fear, worry, and doubt. Not only did she rely on God for help, but she also had a mentor that helped her let go of the hidden subconscious beliefs that keep feeding our fear, worry, and doubt.
I began learning all about how my hidden beliefs were keeping me attached to fear, worry, and doubt. As I found my own mentors over the years to help me let go of these hidden beliefs, I discovered something amazing! I discovered how to hold on to love and light more easily and how to let fear, worry, and doubt HELP me, instead of keep me running around in circles! It has made such a profound impact in my life that now I help others get rid of their hidden beliefs so that they can choose love and light over fear, worry, and doubt! It changes lives! I have the BEST job in the world!
Do whatever you can to overcome fear, worry, and doubt. Hold on to love and light, share it, and see amazing things happen in your life!
