Taking A Leap of Faith – From Fear to Happiness

SONY DSCI used to fear being happy.  I was afraid if I became truly happy something or someone would take that happiness away from me so I lived in unhappiness.  What I didn’t know at the time was that there was nothing to fear and that I was the one responsible for my own happiness.  No matter what was said or done to me, I always had the choice as to how I was going to let it affect me.  Unfortunately, I allowed too many things affect me in a very negative way.  I allowed everyone to have control over my happiness.  Basically, I was putting my entire life in the hands of others because I didn’t know any better and because I was afraid not to.  I didn’t know all I had to do was to live through my Inner Life, the greater part of who we are.  To live in the present moment and allow life to move with me, instead of against me, took all the fear away.

34When I had enough unhappiness, I took a huge leap of faith from fear to happiness.  I let go of everything I was holding onto, especially my fear, and I CHOSE happiness.  I chose to feel good now instead of waiting for something or someone to make me happy.  I chose to be here now, to live and focus as much as I could in the present moment, and to live first through my Inner Life.  I set aside all those outer life things that were causing my fear and unhappiness.  I relaxed, trusted myself, and embraced life.  For the first time in my life I felt like I was able to breathe.  I was free from the pain and fear.  I soon came to learn there was nothing to fear in myself or in my life.  And there is nothing to fear in yours either!

789Was it, or has it always been easy?  No, of course not, but it has been well worth it.  The times that were difficult were only difficult because I was putting up resistance to what was, out of fear.  I was trying to control what was happening instead of remaining in my relaxed state of being and allowing life to flow naturally, easily and effortlessly.  In time, it did get easier and to this day I still have my moments where I sway just a little towards fear, but the good thing is that I am so aware of how I feel and how I want to feel, that I never fall.

15What is fear?  Fear is a word.  A word we have given much power to.  Fear is a belief.  A belief that something is so bad it causes us to be scared.  Think for a moment about how putting the word fear to a thing creates such negativity and fear within ourselves.  For example, many of us are afraid of snakes and spiders, but why?  Because we were taught they were something to fear.  What if we were taught that kittens were something to fear and snakes and spiders were cute and cuddly?  Ok, that may be stretching it a bit, but I think you get my point.  The things we tie fear to are only in our minds.  We all have the power and the ability to change what causes us fear and what doesn’t.

Frog 02What are you afraid of right now in your life?  Are you afraid of changing jobs, moving to a new town, ending your relationship, not losing weight, getting sick, losing a loved one?  Which fears are causing you the most unhappiness and what are you going to do about it?  Isn’t it time to take a leap of faith from fear to happiness?  To trust yourself, relax and embrace life.  Or would you rather live the rest of your life wondering what could have been, if only …..

If true and lasting happiness is what you seek, seek first from within.  Live, breathe and be your Inner Life.  Quiet your mind, focus solely on the present moment and allow the power of your Inner Life guide you to where you want to be …. 

Love & Light,

Living in Faith & Positive Anticipation

50Do you have complete faith and positive anticipation of what is to come?  Do you wake every morning filled with excitement of how your day is going to unfold?  If not, why?  Many dread the future because their lives are not where they want them to be.  However, you are the one who is in control.  You are the one who is calling all the shots.

You are a true and powerful creator of your own reality.

When you live in faith and positive anticipation you release your resistance to what is currently going on.  This means you stop going against your current life situation and relax in the knowing that all is well exactly as it is.

All is well in the present moment.

02Resistance stems from past and/or future thoughts. Acceptance stems from the present moment.  Resistance is like that of a solid brick wall. Only one thing can knock it down, and that is your acceptance of it. When you accept it for what it is, it loses its power over you.  It loses its heaviness that keeps you weighted down.

Every moment is a moment to create what you want.  You have the choice to create a happy or unhappy life experience.  Every vibration (feeling) you send out creates YOUR LIFE’S NEXT MOMENT.  Do you get that?  Right NOW your energy is creating your next moment.

You regain your power through your positive energy. 

If you are unhappy and you keep living in, thinking of, and feeling that unhappiness, you are continuing the pattern of unhappiness.  You are slowly but surely getting more out of tune with your Inner Life.   You are allowing too much of your outer life control your life’s situations.

49One of the most powerful methods I have found for changing negative life situations is to think and feel the essence of that which you truly desire.  Not only will this get you back in tune with your Inner Life, but it will begin to create and manifest a life that is more in line with where you want to be.

The power is within you so don’t waste another minute of your time!

When you let go of all the resistance and live in faith and positive anticipation, the Universe has no choice but to yield to you all that you desire and more!

Second Chances

111There may come a time in your life when you are “offered” a second chance.  A chance to become who you are truly meant to be.  Through whatever means this second chance has come into your life, start from where you are.  There is no need to go back and rehash what was done right or wrong or how you ended up where you are.  There is also no need to start worrying about the future; as to whether or not things will work out or get better.

Too often we impair ourselves by believing we need to “clean up” the past, but this will only hinder where you want to go.  When you go back in time it pulls you away from your Inner Life, from who you really are, from the present moment.  It causes unnecessary pain because you remember how and why you lost your way in the first place.  If you stay focused on “what was” instead of “what is” it will slowly drain you of your happiness and self-worth.

Second chances are not about righting your wrongs or proving your worth; they are about you and only you on a very deep and personal level.  They are about you becoming who you really are by YOUR choice, not through the circumstances of your outer life or other people.  This in itself will alleviate and fade out any pain and/or destruction that was created before this moment.

106If a second chance is really what you want and desire then allow your heart to lead the way.  Live within the boundaries of your Inner Life and trust your instincts.  You will know which way to go and what words to speak.  You will know what feels good and what doesn’t feel good.  And you will know beyond a shadow of a doubt that all is well and all will be well.

All that really matters from this point forward is who you choose to be and how you choose to live your life.  You do not have to prove anything to anyone but instead love with all your heart and allow your Inner Life carry you to where you want to be.

Love & Light,
