Am I ready to accept how fabulous, talented, gifted, creative, and powerful I am?
WOW, sometimes it can feel like a lot of pressure to say "yes" to my greatness because I used to believe it's a sure sign that I'm being arrogant!
That can be fearful, thinking others might accuse me of being arrogant because sometimes I forget the only person's opinion of me that matters is mine!
Every choice I make is based on a feeling of love or fear. Since the only thing that exists is love, I know fear is not real. So if fear isn’t real, what does it mean when I feel fear?
Feeling fear, is my mind’s way of asking me a question, and the question is, “are you sure you really want this?”
Some fear is meant to keep me safe, so fear will ask the question, “Do you want to walk down this dark alley late at night knowing there might be danger ahead?”
Fear is my mind's way of letting me know I'm moving towards a change in my outer world or a shift in my thinking. Because I'm thinking of making this change, my emotions are on high alert and what feels like fear is merely a question, coming from a place of love, wanting me to do whatever it takes to believe it’s safe to accept the abundance coming my way.
When my answer is yes, but I feel the fear, I hesitate, because fear doesn’t FEEL good. Of course, this is ego’s purpose; to stop me from moving forward, from leveling up, because that’s ego’s job; it thinks it’s keeping me safe by staying where I am. Fear is my mind’s way of asking me to be very sure about what I'm saying, ”yes” to.
Moving forward, leveling up, that's where I want to be. I want more of those paying clients, I want that bigger bank balance, I want that comfortable home, I want that healthier body, I want those loving relationships, I want that higher spiritual consciousness, but I don’t always stop to really think about the question fear is asking me because I usually feel it before I understand it!
Now that I understand fear, I know the feeling of fear is my intuition, letting me know I'm being given the opportunity to be more of who I am. Accepting more of who I am keeps me out of a lack mindset and into an abundant mindset. Knowing this gives me the confidence to understand that fear is an opportunity to shift my paradigm. Either way, I know fear is giving me the opportunity to make empowering choices in my life because now, I understand fear!
