The Energy of Emotions
So, Dearhearts, we all know what Fear is. There is not one person out there that has not experienced FEAR is some context. There is not one person who does not know intimately the feeling of fear as it takes hold of our physical form and our perceptions. It can be a gripping sensation that stops us in our tracks or it can slyly and subtly sneak into your consciousness until you realise that it has taken over everything in your life.
But what actually is FEAR? I know there are those of you who would answer that it is an emotion. I wouldn’t argue that point, although my next question would be, then, what is an emotion? We experience ’emotions’ all of the time and, quite assuredly, each of you knows when you are experiencing them, but what exactly are emotions?
In my world (and yours too) you have thoughts in your mind. These thoughts, as I’ve mentioned numerous times, are energy forms. They are electromagnetic waves that vibrate at a particular frequency and then move through our physical body and out in to the world. This energy creates what we would call ’emotion’, which is, in essence, just energy.
So I return to the original question, ‘What is Fear?’ I’m pretty sure most of you would say that Fear is an emotion and, hopefully, recognise that it is an energetic response to an initial energetic thought form. Your body would be resonating to a vibration that we recognise as ‘Fear’, which, in turn, would attract all sorts of things to you once it moved on into the world beyond.
But what if there was more to it? I had an experience yesterday that has opened my eyes to a more expansive view of Fear. I was able to ‘see’ Fear as a physical entity and I was able to see and understand in a flash what it actually does to us. As with all of these particular experiences, I know there was a reason for having it at that moment and I believe this reason to be that we as a people, as Beings as Light, are ready to truly understand the energy form Fear and, thusly, to neatly and effectively kick it to the curb/kerb.
Fear as a Physical Entity
So earlier this week I am sitting in my back yard chatting with my dear friend, Krista. Krista is a healer, intuitive, sensitive and we have all sorts of wild and interesting chats about other dimensions, Spirits, energy, etc. It’s not your ‘hows the kids’ convo usually:-) (www.dimensionalhealingllc.com for those interested in Krista’s work).
I digress….we were chatting and I was telling her that I wasn’t feeling myself. I was feeling static- y and having a hard time grounding and connecting. We talked about the solar flares present and how that was surely effecting our energy. Suddenly she stopped talking and mentioned that she was seeing something unusually behind me and had to share. She described a black doorway and then went on to describe how the world around me and that dark spot was elongating and then shrinking. She mentioned that it was like a bubble that kept on stretching and shrinking with me and the world around it in it all focusing on that dark doorway. Now, I should mention that I am one who works with portals and doorways. I can always sense when a portal is opening/closing and I have an inherent sense of their purpose. I can also access doorways to other dimensions and can travel from one plane to another in energetic form. (If you have interest in learning about portals let me know as I feel the calling to offer a workshop on the topic. )
Back to my story, so I sat with this information. I wasn’t feeling a portal around me. I could ‘see’ in my minds eye the doorway that she mentioned, but the feeling was very different. This wasn’t an access to another dimension, this wasn’t access to a helpful energy form, so, then what was it?
I move forward now as I did not have the answer at the time. It wasn’t until later that night that the penny dropped. It came to me in a flood of understanding and in order to explain clearly I must back up to events a few nights previous. Earlier in the week I was cleaning up my computer. I am notorious for allowing my emails to become a filing cabinet and, as a result, my computer stopped working and I knew it was time to clean up. And clean up I did deleting email after email, attachment after attachment. Unfortunately (or fortunately) the information I was deleting brought me back to a very challenging (ok real shit to be honest) time in my life and, as happens, my thoughts went back to that time and all of the horribleness of that period came rushing back as well. Very aware of the energetic implications of this I tried to clear the energy from my field and stop thinking about it, but as this was a particularly crappy time and the energy was very strong, it wasn’t ready to budge.
Now I need to stop here for a second to clearly explain the energetic ramifications of this event so that you can see the relevance for your own lives. When we ‘think’ of something, we give it energy. So if my thoughts are on events that happened yesterday, my energy lives in that moment, not in the present. Likewise, if you are thinking of events in the future, which do not exist, your energy is focused there on that fictional moment. Much anxiety is born out of thinking of events in the future. This creates a build up of energy within our systems, which we interpret as anxiety. It’s slightly more complicated than that, but not by much. If you are challenged by anxiety, practice keeping you energy here in the present moment. More on that another time….
So by me focusing my thoughts, thus energy, on that moment in the past, I was redirecting my energy to that moment. And since this was a particularly traumatic time for me, the energy surrounding that period was very dark and heavy. Now here is where we come back to Fear. I ‘saw’ that doorway of darkness described by my friend and I understood that that doorway was a doorway to my past, which, in essence, I had opened by directing my thoughts and energy there. And now this is where Fear comes back into our story. I understood at this moment that WE and WE alone give life to FEAR. That FEAR is not just a thought or emotion, but a living, breathing entity of energy. It vibrates, it moves and it effects our physical form and energetic fields. Now I would ask you all to stop for a moment and really absorb this fact.. I know that YOU know that you give life to Fear. We understand on some level that it doesn’t exist, except when we allow it to exist. We view Fear as an emotional response to something, some thought, scenario, etc and, as it is just an emotion, we can alter it by changing our perceptions.
I’m saying that that is not quite right. The perception that we give life to fear or that it is simply an emotional response is not accurate. What we are actually doing is that yes, we have a thought in our heads and yes, that creates an emotional energetic response in our physical form, yes the thought creates a vibration and frequency, but it is this frequency that actually CALLS this thing called FEAR forth from the Universe. What I saw and understood yesterday was that I had opened the doorway to my past, but because the thoughts of that time were changing my resonance, my frequency, this dark energy we recognise as FEAR was coming through the doorway and taking hold of my physical form/energetic field. It was alive and doing what it was created to do….Fear can paralyse us. Energetically this is the most accurate expression we have. It can paralyse us because it is taking over our energetic fields. And as most of you would recognise, when you are in a state of Fear, feelings of self-doubt, depression perhaps, lowered self-esteem come forth, because it is literally sucking your energy out of you and it is in those lowered energetic states that we experience lowered and heavier emotions such as those described above.
If we recognise that Fear is one, something we call/create and two, is simply a dark energetic force, then we can control it. When I recognised that I had created this doorway to my past and was allowing my own Fear/Dark Energy to rob me of my own energy, well I closed that doorway. I called back my energy and, quick as a flash, I felt my energy return to me and I could see that the doorway had been closed. (We often give our energy away or have it drained from us by individuals or situations. Be conscious of where you’re energy is…feeling drained? Chances are something is actually draining your energy!)
Understanding Fear in this way, as a living energy that we create, should help you to alter your own perceptions of it if even in a tiny way. Fear is an energy. It does what it is meant to do. But just as we can create Fear, we can ‘un-create’ it and banish it into nothingness. As humans and Beings of Light we have an infinite ability to create. So instead of creating ‘fear’, let’s focus on creating something beautiful! You have the power to create all sorts of wonderful and amazing things in your life. You can start creating beautiful things, by first banishing fear from your energetic system and the best way to do this is to focus on thoughts and feelings of gratitude and Love. Fear will not resonate with the vibration of gratitude and Love. Try it. Think of something amazing in your life for which you are profoundly grateful. Focus on that thought and feed the energy until it grows and swell. Keep putting Love into it until it takes over your physical form. How are you feeling now? More confident, more grounded, relaxed, grateful?? If you focus on the energy of gratitude for a few moments before you hop out of day, see what a profound effect it will have not only on your day, but for your entire life.
Now go kick fear to the curb and enjoy your day!
