If you believe your fear, you will always be running, but you will not reach your dreams or your life of peace and passion. You cannot believe your fear, but that is easier said then done. Feeling like a hamster on a wheel, you will keep running, but in essence you will be stuck. Doors will not open. Your mind will remain closed. You have shut the Universe out; and, by shutting the Universe out, you have shut down your mind, your heart, and your soul. Fear is your only companion! But you do have a choice. You can face everything with the faith that you can face it. It is not simple, but it can become a habit: walk on by the fear, face the reality, and focus your attention on what has gone right in your life. And things have gone right for you because in simple terms: You are here today!
Faith has been in your life; and I am not simply equating “faith” with any religious belief. Faith can be a spiritual core; it can be the belief in the Universe; it can be the belief that you are here because of a higher power, whatever, whomever that might be.
Many of you can be asking what does this have to do with “money”. It has everything to do with money. Since money touches all of the parts of your being, whether you want it to or not, whatever your energy is in your life will be reflected upon the money and your money relationship in your life.
You do have a choice with your money relationship: Faith or Fear. Here is an example, taken from my own life. There is a large obligation that remains in my life in regard to one of my family members. It has been put on hold officially until November of this year. It is an obligation incurred in the faith that it will be repaid. I awoke this morning, two months before it is due, with a peaceful thought that November is getting closer. I have the faith that the money will be there when it is needed. Sure enough, this morning I received an email with the amount due in November: smaller than I had thought. But there was no fear, there was only faith that all will be well. Faith has taken over the Fear in my money relationship over the years.
The removal of Fear does not happen overnight. It happens one moment at a time with a consciousness that my Faith will carry me through; with a consciousness that the Universe is an abundant Universe and all children of a higher power will be taken care of adequately. It is a matter of facing a fearful situation one step at a time:
- Admit you have an uncomfortable situation with money
- Take 30 seconds and breathe
- Really breathe slowly in through your nose and out through your mouth
- Face the uncomfortable situation; read the information, look at it in reality
- What are your choices
- What is the worst possible outcome
- Put it aside for a period of time
- Revisit the situation
- Face the reality
- Make a decision about what to do, even if that decision is to do nothing, and that is a choice!
- Take the action needed to move you toward the decision
- Action is the step that puts you in control
- Being in control helps reduce and eventually remove the fear with your money
