Letting Go of Fear

How to let go and let be

Fear and control are two of the worst conditions that afflict the human race. Both go against the grain as it were. The grain being that we are supposed to be in charge of ourselves and creating this wonderful life to enjoy. We are actually here to enjoy ourselves.

Some days it will not look like that, it will look like life is not meant to be enjoyed - but, who created it that way? We did of course. Nothing happens without our say so. If you hang onto past events and controlling behaviour then you are only affecting your own life, you will not affect others – not unless they choose you to do so. As more and more people awaken to the true scientific facts of how this life happens and doesn’t happen then many will not allow their lives to be affected by people who are still controlling issues through fear. Because of the nature of how ‘life’ actually happens you cannot control anyone or anything unless it allows you to. So how do you wish to proceed from now on? Without fear I guess..

First thing to remember, fear is a lie, fear does not exist accept in your mind and then very quickly in your bodily symptoms, extreme or minor these are still physical symptoms which will affect your life. Fear can be banished for ever from your life when you take control of your mind. Fear cannot and will not live on if you are acting from a strong Buddhi discriminating mind.

In order to have the discriminating mind functioning you will need to have quietened down the more normal brain waves and energy of normal mind. Normal mind is the voice in your head, the extension of the facts and figures and information that you have gathered over time. I wonder what it would feel like to have the mind of a 1 month old baby? This I am sure would be as pure as the driven snow, just thoughts from source, experiences from source and then thoughts of needs that need fulfilling for survival. How do we get from here to there? In order to stop the voice in the head from continually playing a part in your life and even controlling your life you will need to have a discipline of meditation.

Taking Away The Myths Around Meditation

Meditation is not a belief system, not a religion and has nothing to do with physical activity including thinking! In order to meditate choose a comfortable chair and sit down. Turn off your phone and music or TV. Allow yourself to relax and begin to put your attention on your breathing. Do not change the breathing allow it to be natural. Every time your mind comes into play allow your attention and consciousness to rest again on your breath. This way you are beginning to take control of lower mind, that infuriating voice in the head that butts in when all you want to do is rest. Do not fight with this mind just gently and continuously bring your attention back to the breath and continue this way for 20 minutes. Your life will change. You will become calmer, more satisfied, healthier and more in charge in the NOW moment. As the lower mind quietens because the light of consciousness is not being shone on it so the strength of the higher Buddhi mind will grow.

Each day carry out this simple activity and fear will be no more, fear cannot exist in the NOW moment when you are operating from the higher Buddhi mind. If there is danger in front of you you will go into action not fear.

If you have a particularly over active mind and find putting your attention on the breath difficult with many, many thoughts coming in then you can use a mantra. The mantra method is what is called Transcendental Meditation where you are given your own personal mantra. In order to begin using this method use the mantra "Eloheim" which is a pure phrase meaning "all that God is". Whilst sitting quietly, as with the breath technieque, repeat the mantra to yourself with your attention on the word. Pronounced "Aloheam". When you find that you are in thinking mind and not repeating the word then gently bring yourself back to the word.

Activating the higher mind will be imperative for everyone in the future as we go through the predicted changes here on Planet Earth.
