Letting Go of Fear
I do whatever I need to do to keep my inner world peaceful. My inner peace is essential for my health and well-being. — Louise Hay
More than ever there seems to be so much in the world to fear. On the news, in life and in the very fabric of our existence. I understand, it is human to fear what we can’t control and we don’t understand. The wonderful thing about fear is we can change that fear into faith. Though that may sound difficult, it is actually a simple shift of our own intent and perspective. By understanding that we can’t control everything or anything but ourselves, that in itself becomes our strength. Each of us has the ability to influence the world, see the beauty in life, and spread faith through our attitudes and actions.
Psychologist and author Susan Jeffers once stated,
“Everybody feels fear when approaching something totally new in life—yet so many are out there doing it despite the fear—then we must conclude that fear is not the problem.”
Love is the opposite of fear. The more we’re willing to love and trust who we are, the more we attract those qualities to ourselves. When we’re on a streak of really being frightened or upset or worried or not liking ourselves, isn’t it amazing how everything goes wrong in our lives? It’s the same when we really love ourselves. Everything starts to go on a winning streak, and we get the green lights and the parking spaces. We get up in the morning and the day flows beautifully.
