Rejecting Feelings of Fear
By Alisa Battaglia
“Be attentive to your thoughts for your thoughts control your
emotions. Your emotions control your words. Your words control your actions and your actions determine your character and your character determines your Legacy. “
Do not shrug the fear that enters your body mind. Feel it, place it within its proper context & move on. This does not mean that you won’t feel fear again, but you must know how to appropriately metabolize it so that it passes through your body rather than stuck within your tissues and bones and imprinted into your neural network. Stuck emotions cause inner paralysis and perceptual distortion.
Holding onto fear borne through perceptions of finite limitation, separation, and disorder, and cultural archetypes and relationship patterns (Victim-Victimizer Game) are themes that underlie familiar disharmonious patterns that form the basis for so much dysfunction. Dysfunction always creates mistrust and constant doubt that paves the way to feeling helpless and living a reactive life where you are not in control of your experiences.
Allowing your emotions to blow out is about “not managing” your emotions. This not being steady in the Self causes you to hold on and attach to that which feels safe. Such attachments may be your need to feel accepted – approved of by others, enamored to a certain external identity, elevated in spiritual ego or conditioned in unconscious reaction. Any focus on the approval of others, the dependency of the mask you wear is false and is what creates the distortions between the limitless Self and the egos attachments.
Make no mistake that abiding in a bubble that is terminally one sided, that is too far off in one direction, causes abreactions even when you are presented with love. In that gift there will be resistance in the receiving, because no space or emptying has been made inside to receive it. Your refusal to feel and/or limit your capacity to properly deal with what flows through your feeling centers produces a recoiling effect where the energy becomes bound in the body rather than processed through it much like a sieve.
There are certain things you must keep in mind. One is that Fear, all emotions not aligned in love, is due to the unknown. Without the capacity to feel the variations of fear you are unable to know your uncomfortable feelings in order to integrate them into your experience. When you make your emotions unwelcome, you reject them and the personality remains undeveloped and unbalanced and natural spiritual evolution is halted.
Getting in touch with the emotional body and purifying the strategic patterns of conditioning is fundamental to all else and yet, it is the meeting of your fears that is the most ignored. Due to unprocessed fear and denial to see and be with what is real, you develop inner strategies to dupe yourself into believing that everything is okay, while you tuck your head deep under the sand, blinded and in the dark. Unresponsive to the reality that to face your fear, to feel it and move forward despite it, is the very action that will shift fear into courage and self empowerment. This is the way to meet all forms of resistance in the world, both inner and outer. Feel the fear & do it anyway. Let this be your guiding mantra.
Harnessing your fear towards right process will cultivate your inner faculties to make your feelings of fear your ally. Fear will serve as your barometer as to what is real or imagined. Once fear is placed within its proper context, you use your feeling faculty to discern the origins of the fear bracket and its level of authenticity within its context. Next, you allow in those feelings in with a dis-impassioned interest and let them out as you disassemble the distorted patterns of belief without getting caught in the mire of judgment. When you label your emotions as good or bad you shut down the “allowing process.” Judgment creates blockers by contracting your perception and thereby, blocking your ability to properly recognize familiar disharmonious patterns in the breadth of the feelings that make you “feel” so uncomfortable in the first pace. You are always to look for the patterns in things, which allows for a wider scope of seeing, whereas labels are always limited to their definition.
Remember that emotions have natural ebb and flow qualities and must be allowed to flow through the body. This is what it means that, “You are not your emotions,” but you are responsible for managing them, which is to place them in right context for inspection and release, or retain them for integration into higher wisdom in order to expand your light quotient and increase your vibration to higher reaching responses.
Learning to manage your emotional kaleidoscope is to begin to understand the language of your complex feeling nature expressed through the wisdom of your body. And fear is only a singular facet in the emotional mosaic, which need not define, just simply be acknowledged and taken higher where it can be dissolved and viewed with greater understanding and polarized into Love.
No matter the depth and expansion of your consciousness, there are always shadows with various hues that play hide and seek or reveal another facet to provide you with a new perceptual angle. Allow radiant light to pour over all the gradients and dimensions of your feeling perception. This is what enables you to walk a truer path, beyond the web of judgment, comparison values and pursuit of self gratification that always produces inertia of spirit.
When you learn to be sensitive to the voice within and acknowledge its guidance you lead yourself onto the path of natural evolution.
Remember, you are how you vibrate! How close is your vibrational bar to love?
