At the beginning of 2018 I made a commitment to my self—a walking meditation, a personal “Mantra”—to practice turning all thoughts and feelings of “Fear” into “Love”, in the spirit of A Course of Miracles.
“Love in your mind produces love in your life. This is the meaning of heaven. Fear in your mind produces fear in your life. This is the meaning of hell.”
― Marianne Williamson
I have to admit that I don’t identify as a person who has fears, very few if any. I am the kind of person who has always gone where I liked, when I liked, and seem to get along with most people, even if they are trying to attack me in some way. I have a deep, unconditional love for all and it has a way of shifting a negative situation into a more harmonious exchange.
Yes, there are times when I am dissatisfied or when people are unhappy with me…usually when I say “No” or point out a mistake that I would like to have corrected. I still hold love in my heart even when being firm with others.
So, it was a big surprise to me to discover an area of my life that really needed help with fearful thoughts. It was that part of my mind that would do future planning in such a way as to try to avoid problems. For example, I would anticipate the worst case scenario in a situation with the belief that I would then be better prepared to find a way through it. What I have come to realize is that was a waste of my time and was fear-based. I am better now at being more in the moment and meeting things as they arise. Plus, I have greater peace most of the time.
One of the best things I did for myself at the beginning of this year was re-read A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson, a book that I had read back when it was first published in 1996.
I realize the idea of transmuting fear to love sounds simple, but it actually takes a great deal of courage and digging deeply within one’s soul to discover the sources, sometimes ancestral wounds, that have driven these fears. This is where my work with Sentient Clearing™ has supported me and my clients to dissolve old traumas that keep us locked into old beliefs that no longer support us. Look for a future weblog post for more details about this profound energy work.
2018 has been an amazing year for me and I viscerally experience more love in every cell of my body and great peace of mind. I would recommend this practice to everyone!!
