What Is Fear?

Affirmations are designed to clear the mind of fearful and negative outcomes.
Affirmations are a cosmic mental cleanser.
Affirmations are useful tools to seek and see only what we want.
Affirmations along with forgiveness delete the past negative and clear away our fearful imagining.

I now forgive, erase and delete my fears, so I can see the Light.
I now release what is past and open to creating a transformative future.
I now open my mind to think, speak and act in positive healthy ways.
I let go of the fear I see and trust in the good I choose to be.

FEAR = False Expectations Appearing Real.
FEAR = Fake Evidence Appearing Right
FEAR = Learned beliefs  to protect ourselves. 
FEAR = Ego teaching us to defend ourselves from Essential Good.

Most of the world and its beliefs are based on fear.
Most of mis-creations are defenses against the truth.
Most of thoughts are judgments we believe will protect us.
Most of judgments are projections onto the world to keep us safe.

Enough of psycho-spiritual philosophy we have made up.
Try out this experiment!
1) Think of what scares you and notice your thoughts, feelings, words and choices.
2) Think of what feels safe and loving and notice your thoughts, feelings, words and behavior.

When we scare ourselves with fearful thoughts, words and behavior, we have fearful reactions.
When we comfort ourselves with thoughts, words, memories, choices, we feel safe, happy and expansive.

Fear contracts us and shuts down everything in a protective mode, usually through fight or flight.
Love and safety expand us and open our minds and behavior to a creative, loving and flowing mode.

Fear binds us and judgments get us stuck.
Love frees us and forgiveness opens the flow.

The work in life is to free ourselves from constant vigilance against potential harm.
The play in life is to provide ourselves with constant, loving, safe and healthy environments.
The psychological work is to let go of scaring ourselves with thoughts and memories, visions of harm.
The mental play is to give ourselves visions of freedom and trust, creativity and beauty.

When we live in fear of punishment, we cannot think creatively.
When we free ourselves from attack thoughts, we do not fear being attacked by others.
When we choose to live in trust with those around us, we open our natural creative expression.
When we eliminate fear-based blocks to our natural loving relationships, we find peace.

The media promotes fear and sensationalizes what is dramatic and dangerous.
Most teachings from parents, teachers and leaders is to guard ourselves against harmful stuff.
Most children are taught to avoid and withhold, rather than to reach out and respond with kindness.
Most thoughts are based on preventing bad stuff rather than creating the Good.

What we think, creates.
When we resist or avoid, stays in place.
What we focus on, is strengthened.
What we believe, we see.

It is time to spend our time, energy, money, teaching on positive, healthy and good creations.
