Moving Out of Fear and Into Love

There are actually good reasons for feeling fear. First of all, we always feel fear when we act on the heart because the world teaches us to go in the opposite direction (away from the inner self.) The outer world of duality resists the motion of wholeness associated with finding the inner self.

Yet, nothing is as fulfilling as connecting with the inner self, and life changes when we live from the heart. We learn to identify the energy associated with our soul. We gain awareness of energy as a whole and learn how it resonates with us. We learn how to create our inner desires, find our gifts, and share them with others.

There are also other reasons for feeling fear. They involve mass consciousness, taking a leap in faith, listening to the heart (when it doesn’t make sense), trusting the universe, and resistance.

1) When we step into the light, it involves a leap. It means letting go of our current life and believing whatever appears will work. It’s not easy, and the ego often feels resistance (or fear) about taking a big step.

Take the first step and continue by repeating until it works or morphs into another form. You will find help; the universe will not abandon you.

2)  The outer world does not encourage the huge wave of awakening. When we expand into our inner self, we can receive a wave of fear from mass consciousness (the lower emotions of the world at large.)

If you focus on the inner self as often as possible, you will find a way to move through the resistance. (It’s not easy, but you can move through it by using your will and determination.)

3) Mass consciousness resists personal change. Mass consciousness is a compilation–or cloud of energy–based on the lowest emotions and thoughts on the planet. When we feel a lower emotion such as fear and/or anxiety, mass consciousness increases the lower feeling. It’s helpful to ask the universe to delete the connection with lower energies and align us with the inner self.

The universe responds when we ask for help. It hears us more easily if we ask often and meditate.

4)  When we step into love and the inner self, it means letting go of our current life and believing whatever appears will work. It’s not easy, and the ego often feels resistance (or fear) about taking a big step. It’s normal to feel afraid, uneasy, or agitated before taking a step, and we have to trust the universe. The universe always has a bigger, better plan.

Let go and trust. If you feel the light, it is leading you. Go forward!

5) It’s easier to feel fear about our destiny than it is to take a step. “Destiny’ is simply the soul’s path—the universe’s way of choosing experiences of teaching us to move into a higher place of being. It’s easiest to begin with a desire of the heart. Manifestation is the expression of an expanded vision of the beautiful and good aspects of self that originate in the heart.

Learn how to use tools such as visualization, positive thoughts, and the power of love.  Study angels, read books, and practice changing how you see your life. (There is a great network of “love”, which will support you.)

6) The pressure and feelings of fear will lessen when you decide to move in the direction of the soul. The pressure lessens as you listen and commit to your inner self. The relief is often immediate!

7) Moving into awakening can also bring feelings of uncertainty to the surface. While we may feel unhappy in our experience of “reality”, relinquishing control can feel difficult. We have expectations of how life should look and feel. 

Control comes from the ego. Allow your “reality” to rearrange itself in a new manner. It’s okay. The new reality will be much better.

8) When we step into intuition, it can take time to distinguish between the soul and ego—and to have a consistent feeling of direction. (This can feel frightening.) The inner self asks us to listen with the heart. It means following intuition or inner guidance as opposed to the voice of the outer world. This may feel strange or uncomfortable in the beginning. Often, the directions don’t make sense.

9) Over time, we learn to trust the inner voice and distinguish feelings and direction.After every leap, we trust the inner voice more. But it’s only in the area of the jump. There’s still more ground to cover.  We often feel the resistance of the lower self and the world, but it passes. Part of this occurs from learning to believe in the inner self, the true part of the self. (We also learn to believe in the universe’s ability to support us—or faith.)

Creating Abundance


Everything is energy, and money is energy too.  Our spirituality and inner consciousness play a part in the abundance that we receive in life.  Our energy level and receptiveness to abundance affect it, as well as our expectations and beliefs.  

When we raise our frequency through meditation or a state of love (as opposed to fear or lack), it’s easier to find the steps that lead to the realization of our hopes and desires. Love, hope and faith are qualities that aid in creating higher forms of energy for the realization of dreams.

Manifestation is more than meditating.  When we hold a desire through conscious visualization, we create an image on the level of higher creation, of higher knowing. Our desired future reality is not present. It is invisible on the material plane. Initially it exists only as the particles of our being that have been projected into the future through our conscious focus. Over time the particles of energy coalesce to shape our future reality.

Thoughts, feelings and visualizations affect our experience of reality. By changing our inner visuals, we shape the future. By staying focused on the positive, we can change our present experience very rapidly.

Examples of positive thought/visual forms could include:

  • Review money positively in your mind.  See double the amount of money in checking or savings accounts, or see the balance increase in believable increments.
  • Notice worry and see abundance in their place. Negative energy attracts more of the same. Let go of thinking/feeling that bills take away your money. Imagine always having enough money for bills or money immediately flows in.
  • Use memory. Review times when money flowed in easily. Remember the feeling of ease and happiness.
  • See checks or payments flowing in. Recall the feeling of increasing funds. (With personal business, remember how others value and love your work. See others benefiting and gaining from your work.)
  • Increase awareness of happiness and goodness in your life.
  • Hold this thought: any expense equals the inflow of cash.
  • Imagine a wonderful surprise – money comes in whenever you think about it.
  • Send pink light or love to the money in your wallet, checkbooks and accounts.
  • Express gratitude for any money that comes your way. See small amounts as an indication that more money is already on the way.

The Process

 Each time that we focus on our desired future, we breathe life into it. Meditation clarifies the steps in physical reality and the emotional/mental sphere. It intensifies our ability to see, feel or perceive the steps. The steps involve the awakening of a new use of talents, gifts and soul attributes. Our focus on the manifestation exercise, and its ensuing steps, is part of the movement of co-creation, as the Universe is essentially developing parts of our soul personality that have lain dormant.

We have the power to partially create our desired future through meditation, and we may experience aspects of it during our daily life. When opportunities or encouraging words flow toward us, we may feel our desired future reality and truly believe that it will occur. (It’s also important to hold our vision when life appears to move in the opposite direction.)

As a manifestation comes more closely into being, (and we are all moving in that direction) we must take action. Spiritual work teaches us to take new actions, to express our soul personality in a new form. Expansion of our talents and abilities is the natural outcome of creating abundance through a spiritual focus.

We tend to exclude the most important steps while making for the parts of work and life that are less important. The funny part is that – deep down – we always know the next step to take.

When beginning soul work with prosperity, it’s helpful to meditate for a few minutes, to work with self-confidence and feel positive about our work. If there is confusion or a feeling of a block about the next step, it’s good to work in ten or fifteen minute increments and then put the work away. It’s important to praise ourselves whenever we take a step.

We should treat ourselves lovingly when we move toward change. Everyone lacks confidence, skill and knowledge at first. It’s how we begin. As we let go of self-judgment or negative thoughts, we move toward the mastery of inner skills which can transform our challenges into an exciting adventure.
