Fearless Friday: how does fear serve you?

posted by Susan Gregg

How does fear serve you? What does it help you avoid?

Really spend some time thinking about what positive things fear does for you? I used to use fear to say no to lots of things. I wouldn’t say I am too afraid to do this or that but I would use my fear to stop me. In a strange way fear keeps us safe, limited but safe.

I generally talk about overcoming fear so why look at how it serves you? When you look at the world through the eyes of love even fear looks more expansive and has positive attributes. If we try to avoid fear or judge it as bad and wrong we just feed it and it gets bigger and more powerful.

When I say whatever you do DO NOT think about a tomato or fear, even if you weren’t thinking about it before I told you not to you are now.

Writing is such a powerful tool. Give yourself the gift of looking at fear through the eyes of love and see what happens. Write, write and then write some more. You will know when you are really done and your life will expand as the result of you giving yourself that gift.

Fear is really only a shadow stopping us from seeing the love in everything.

    When I realized everything I was doing or not doing was out of fear, I looked up fear in my King James, memorized II TIM 1:7 I live by that verse it has changed my life!

    That is a beautiful quote. And here it is for people not familiar with it.
    2 Timothy 1:7 (New International Version)
    For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.
    With lots of love,

Refelctions on the Vietnam War
I was surprised when I was reminded that it was the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War. I was in high school when the war started and much of my early life was lived against the back drop of vivid images of the war every night on the evening news. When I was in college the massacre at Kent State

How to talk to the angels
I get asked this question all the time. It really is very easy but our minds can make it so much harder. We can doubt what we are hearing or sensing or feeling. You are always surrounded by angels. The moment you ask them for help they are there. The problem is we often don't let the help in.
