Let’s be real and get to the point.… This past year we’ve all faced a ton of fear and in many ways have felt powerless. But there is one area where we do have power. We have the power to choose what we focus on. In every moment we have the choice to lean into more fear and engage in more drama, or we can make the choice to lean into love no matter what.
In this video I share spiritual and practical methods for you to take your power back and transform your fear into faith. Watch now!
One of the key messages in this video is that even in the most uncomfortable circumstances we have the power to lean into faith as a guide back to love. But we are more comfortable being uncomfortable than we are being happy. In a weird way we feel safer in a state of fear. So the moment we start to feel relief and begin to lean into love, our ego (that the voice of fear within us) starts to say, “Nope! That’s too good to be true.”
When that voice of fear starts to speak up, follow these 4 steps from my latest Dear Gabby mash-up video!
4 STEPS TO TURN FEAR INTO FAITH
When in doubt, say this!
We have a fault-finding mindset rather than a solution, happiness-oriented mindset. So the next time you notice that you aren’t in a good place or that doubt creeps in, I want you to speak back to that voice.
Say, “Thank you for sharing, but I choose happiness instead. Thank you for sharing, but I don’t believe that voice anymore. Thank you for sharing, but I’m choosing love at this moment.” Give yourself permission in the moment to speak back to the fault-finding voice and start to claim the greatness of who you are.
When you freak out, do this …
When you notice yourself activated, wanting to react, judge, attack, or obsess about a problem, instead, say this prayer (to whoever you speak to) :
I choose love no matter what. Thank you, Universe. Thank you, God. Thank you, Spirit, for revealing the loving solution to me now.
Turn pain into purpose.
I believe when we become grateful for our past circumstances, no matter how difficult they may have been, we can move forward with a greater understanding and awareness of what those experiences gave to us.
When we can look back and say, “Wow, I am resilient! Look how much I learned from that. I feel more free than I’ve ever felt before”; when we become willing to see our difficult past experiences through the lens of gratitude and love, we can move forward with faith and grace.
Give yourself permission to do this.
If you’re wondering how you can trust the voice of inspiration rather than the voice of fear, make a quick adjustment and start to do more things that bring inspiration into your life. Focus on actions and thoughts that temporarily suspend logic and reason, to allow more inspiration and joy to come through you.
Whenever you give yourself permission to stop thinking and start allowing, inspiration comes through in place of fear. It’s the subtle shift of you choosing to get back into alignment that will open up your consciousness to see things through the lens of love rather than the lens of fear.
If you want to learn how to let go of the need to control so you can relax into a sense of certainty and freedom, follow the guidance in my book The Universe Has Your Back: Transform Fear to Faith. Making the shift from fear to faith will give you a sense of power in a world that all too often makes us feel utterly powerless.
