Transforming Fear

As we move further and further into accepting our responsibility for creating this amazing and beautiful world that we share, we are being confronted with more and more of our fears. Often we're discovering a recurrence of fears we thought we'd cleared. These fears are reappearing to show us that there is still more healing/clearing to be done.

Sometimes we don't even recognize ours fears as fears, but rather see the outward manifestation of them as "the way things are", implying that it can't be changed. But no matter how things look, everything, but everything, can be changed. Fear based thoughts can be replaced with their opposite - love based thoughts - and must be if we are to fully create as we desire inside the new energy. The key is that before change can occur, we must come to an acceptance and appreciation for that which we have been railing against or hiding from.

But how?

Lysaa Royal has provided the following information from her spiritual group, Germane, to help us move through our fear.

Germane’s 4 Step Fear Process:

1) Ask: What do I fear?

We would suggest that the person list as many things as possible. This is including physical fears (such as snakes or riding in a car). It is also encompassing fear of success, fear of not being loved, fear of being abandoned. It is the tangible fears and the intangible fears. Write down as much as you possibly can. Take as long as you possibly can to do it. It is going to be very illuminating for you.

2) Ask: How does this fear manifest in my life?

For instance, an answer to that question might be, "When I am in fear, I lash out at those I love." It is very important for you to identify the behavior that you engage in when you are in fear. Often you do not know when you are in fear, because it is a behavior or an energy that you are used to. But if you can learn to identify your behavior patterns, you can then examine your patterns and know when you are in fear. That way, every time you lash out at someone you love, you are going to know, "Ah ha! I must be in fear."

3) Ask: What possible value can I find for the expression of my fear?

Let us reword this. What value can you ascribe to the expression of your fear? Example: Your fear is extremely valuable because it points out to you when you are having tremendous growth opportunities. If you can identify, through your behavior, when you are in fear, you can stop and say, "Ah ha! This is an extremely valuable time right now, because it signifies something for me to move through which will be tremendously empowering."

4) Personify your fear.

Take a clean sheet of paper, colored pens and pencils, crayons, whatever you want, and what you are going to do is to personify your fear. Draw your fear. Give it a humanoid form—whether it looks like a witch or a vampire, or an ugly monster, make it is ugly and as sinister as you can, but still keep it having the appearance of human. This is a very, very powerful mechanism. What it is going to do is communicate to your subconscious mind and your ego that fear is on your level. We will call this fear character "Mr. Fear." (You can call it "Miss Fear" if you want to, it doesn't matter). Mr. Fear, when personified, is like fear being revealed. It is now vulnerable. It now stands there in front of you and you can see it is your height. It has two arms, two legs. It is something you can deal with. It is not this big, black void.

When you put fear on your level through personification, you can then use all sorts of techniques such as dialoging with the fear to help the transformational process occur. When you've mastered fear, once again we will repeat, when you've mastered fear, you have mastered self-empowerment. In a sense, fear is the one enemy all of you are fighting on this planet—to speak a little bit dramatically. Each of you have disguised Mr. Fear in a different costume. So Mr. Fear is always something outside of you. However, Mr. Fear is something very alive and well inside. And it is the primary blockage toward mastering personal power. When Mr. Fear is brought to your level and embraced and allowed to express itself, you will be on the path toward absolutely and totally mastering your personal power.
