Anything that is built on fear is like it is built on sand.

Transforming Fear

By Shirley Knapp

Anything that is built on fear is like it is built on sand.

In our world today, it is extremely important to release and transform fear! When there is so much fear around us, you may ask yourself what is the importance of this and how to do this? The importance of changing fear into trust changes the way we see our life and how we live it. When we live in fear we react out of fear and everything becomes limited. The shallow, tight feeling of fear affects the way we breathe and even our immune systems. When our immune systems are depleted we invite physical challenges. Our limited thoughts color the way we imagine our lives. For example do you see the glass half empty or half full? Our thoughts draw to us exactly what we are most afraid of so that is why this work is so important. The first step to transforming our fears is to identify them.

Identify one of your fears.

Begin doing this by intuitively checking into your life like you would swing a pendulum. If you swing into a part of your life and you feel resistance, you most likely are making a decision out of fear. If you then again try to swing into the same situation and the swing makes your heart feel open, there is trust. If you find a place where fear is a foundation, you need to let that go, because anything that is built on fear is like it is built on sand. It really won't stand firm in the newness. Be willing to change the fearfulness into trust and limitlessness.

Embrace your fear.

One way to begin transforming your fear is to sit quietly and visualize that fear and bring it close to you. Whether this is a belief in your relationships, career, or health, remember it is part of you and is like an old friend. A good way to disempower that fear is to sit quietly and imagine yourself by the sea. Bring in either a whale or dolphin to assist you in your relaxation. Let the fearfulness be released using the whales and the dolphins. Use their energy to exchange your fear patterns. This is their greatest gift for you and to you. They will exchange your fear patterns quite joyfully, playfully. You don't need to give your fear patterns to them, but you can bring the fear patterns to them for exchange: release them into the sea and be filled with their (the dolphins' and the whales') joyfulness, their limitlessness, and their fearlessness.

And you will see so clearly how it all works because they have it to give. That is their purpose to give and more and more of you will be drawn to their hearts because you are ready at last to give up what has really never been yours. You have worn old fear from who knows when and how, and it really doesn't matter. All that matters is that you no longer wear the fear, because it is like old clothes that no longer fit you. If they were never yours, they don't belong to you and don't suit you. Let go of things that no longer suit you until you are more and more free and clear to play in the wind and the sand and the sun until you are more and more free inside yourselves to just be who you are. Be not afraid, for those who have filled you with limited fearful thoughts are around you in your everyday lives. As you know, you can always go out and find fear whenever you ask. If you ask around long enough, you will find an answer that is filled with fear, and then you won't take your next step.

Remember, without fear everything is available to you.

Stay firm in your commitment to joyfulness, and you will see things change around you that have never changed prior to this. You will see as you begin experiencing the end of old beliefs, resolution of old conflicts, the tearing down of old structures where there is any foundation of fear they will be replaced in the essence of the new. As you change within yourself, you will help to change your world. Continue to clear and love yourself, and you will feel the depth of your world shift. When you find yourself with the feeling of ultimate resistance or fear, bless that polarity, for that is given to you so you can work upon something inside yourself that can be changed and shift your outer world. Take that fear, that polarity, those relationships, and place it (them) on a Bridge of Light. You can do this with any part of your life to receive support where there is resolution needed.

We give you this exercise:

Think of someone with whom you'd like to communicate through thought and energy. Now imagine a bridge between you and that person. The bridge becomes a place to meet and communicate through thoughts, images, and feelings. You are, in essence, inviting connection and healing on a higher level. Your time on the bridge can be used to open the heart, to forgive, to release fear, to celebrate, or to connect in many other ways. When you feel complete, thank the other person for their participation and release the image of the bridge.

. What fears/resistances are you holding that you would like to release?

In what other areas of your life might this exercise be helpful?

How has this exercise shifted your relationship to that person?

What newness has come in to replace the old fears that you have chosen to release?

What joy are you experiencing as a result?

You can do this in your meditations and be as effective, and much more effective at times, than on the earth plane when you run into physical resistance. Remember JOY is your choice. CHOOSE IT!
