I have warned you that I love plays on words and the use of language to give double or more than one meaning for effect. In this blog, I want to use the word recognize–
Meanings of Recognize: to know and give acknowledgement and accept its power and authority; to be fully aware of; to spot or discern and detect; to perceive or show approval of and to exhibit something.
I am using recognize in all of the above ways to give meaning to how we use fear as a way to scare and give power to things that did not happen in the past, or may have happened once or twice to us; or that we perceive could possibly happen in the future. So, just thinking and giving recognition to any circumstance we associate with fear can lead to being scared that it will happen and taking it to an awful outcome can project it onto our mental screen ready for projection.
Once we project anything awful or scary in the way of a thought and make a movie out of it, we are actually doing two things to our cognition (the result of perception, learning and reasoning). We are planting a negative seed of fear, watering it with awful worry, and those two things can grow an entire environment within us that I am going to call, SCARE CITY. Once we have chosen to live under the influence of this city, we are going to experience scarcity and lack our full power to remain mindful and calm in the present.
Allowing yourself to go under the influence of anything creates a mindset that is altered (like drugs or alcohol, etc.) because the mind is a powerful place that creates drama, illusions, and anything that can be created, both negatively and positively. This sets up a trance effect, or sort of hypnotic effect that influences you either some of the time, or when you feel threatened or fearful.
Operating out of a fear-based mindset is a constant film of some kind of worry, dread, horror, distress, anxiety, fright, alarm, apprehension, panic, anxiety, and numerous kinds of depressing thoughts. IS THAT REALLY what you want to create for yourself?
An even bigger problem with giving award winning attention to the fears of life that “can” happen, and do is an actual attraction to allow energy to develop that may draw them to you. I am not saying people create awful, but I am saying that a spirit of fear filming everyday in your mind does create a sense of Terror (you look at the world around you with terror eyes), a sense of peril (peril eyes will paralyze you) or any other negative sensing. You are looking for awful and you will find it.
Conversely, if you trust that you can stay present with a feeling of calm, you are not living under the influence of anxiety and depression, which will create a sense of wellness and a positive spirit that will invite that to you. You feel peace and serenity, therefore, you attract things that are good and loving. If a negative force does come your way, you will have the presence of mind to deal with it in a non-fearful way, which could actually save your life!
EACH TIME YOU CHOOSE SERENITY AND POSITIVE OVER FEARFUL AND SCARE CITY, YOU GAIN NEW PERCEPTIONS THAT LEADS YOU TO A HIGHER QUALITY OF LIFE AND JOY:)
