FEAR IS JUST A THOUGHT
During an Energy Healing session with my friend Stormy Lake a few years ago, she said something that stopped me right in my tracks. It was an AH-HA moment. It spoke directly to my Soul. Though I had heard it many times before, and studied it too, THIS time ... was different.
She said: "FEAR IS A JUST A THOUGHT." So many things I have researched have pointed to FEAR always being described as an illusion, yet for me and so many others, it was very REAL. But during THIS session with Stormy, I finally made the connection when she spoke those words on THAT particular day. "FEAR IS JUST A THOUGHT" ... And will NOT manifest in form UNLESS, I give Life to it. Unless I CHOOSE to bring that THOUGHT into FORM.
So I started researching some more, letting my findings speak to my Divine inner guidance system. There are only two natural fears: the fear of loud noises, and the fear of falling. All else is manmade. Knowing this, ask yourself: What gives power to a thought of fear? – my INTEREST. If I have no interest in a particular thought, then it loses its hold over me. It dissipates and moves on into the Ether. Again, "FEAR, is a THOUGHT." If you're focusing on fear, you're giving it energy. Where your focus goes, energy grows.
It helps to know that you are not your thoughts, and that thoughts are just energy forms created in Mind. You are the one experiencing, witnessing, and observing. You can stop giving power to these thoughts by not giving them your interest. By not focusing your attention on them. Thoughts die immediately when they are deprived of this "fuel" (your interest). If you don’t associate with that thought, or give power to that thought, it will dissipate quickly.
LIFE is a stream of pure POSITIVE energy, and any negative thought will stand in OPPOSITION to it, causing friction - which is felt as suffering in the body. As Stormy continued to say: "fear comes from a source outside of Divine peace. It disturbs the path of rest and safety. When it becomes manifest in body, it holds us back ... Infirmity. Do not give power to your thought."
In ancient scripture we find THIS verse in 2 Corinthians:
"For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 4(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience..."
2 Corinthians 10:3-5
Take captive every thought. We must remember, thoughts become things. The unseen, made manifest. Every "thing" in form, must first have it's origins in thought. This is Universal Law. For every effect, there must be a first cause.
Thank you Stormy Lake, and thank you Spirit within, for awakening and connecting a conscious understanding of this Law years ago, that I can now apply to fear and anxiety. Guard the gate of your Mind ... Always. Choose wisely what you wish to bring into your Life experience.
Proverbs 23:7 says: "For as he thinks within himself, so he is." This, is Cause and Effect.
Just a "thought" :) ...
