Lightworkers: Don't Let Fear Get In Your Way!

"The Only Thing We Have To Fear, Is Fear Itself"--Franklin D. Roosevelt

Our planet is going through changes (we are already up to our knees in the Shift, and there is so much fear surrounding 2012), we are still dealing with terrorist activities (been through an airport lately—there was an incident earlier this week!), and our economy is still in bad shape. All around us friends and loved ones have had their pay cut, lost their jobs and maybe even their homes and cars—and many Lightworkers have too. Lightworkers, we are living in scary and challenging times, there’s no doubt about it, but these are the times and the challenges that we signed up for! We’re not here now living through these times by accident. Lightworkers volunteer (although some are drafted!) to be born together at precisely at the right time in order to wake up and be in position when needed. Remember the first big influx of Lightworkers during our recent history? It was the “Flower Children” of the 60’s! They were followed by the Baby Boomers, then the Indigos, Crystals, and Rainbows, each bringing an evolved energy and awareness to the planet—and there are more generations of Lightworkers on the way. Why so many different groups of Lightworkers here now at the same time? Because this planet is going to make universal history—our entire planet, along with its inhabitants, will shift together—we’re in the throes of it as you read this.

Human Beings are evolving together into something more than we have ever been before, and the Earth is evolving as well, so that the vibrational level of the planet and the new frequency level of human beings remain in sync with one another. It’s a thrilling time to be in body and watch such exciting changes happening all around us. But these changes can be scary, too, because many of the things that we are used to and familiar with must change--without such changes we can’t progress.

Things are changing quickly for everyone on our beautiful planet, and things are changing much more quickly for Lightworkers than for anyone else. Why? Because Lightworkers are always on the front lines during times such as these—and it has always been this way. Lightworkers thrive on overcoming adversity and paving the way for great change, great progress, why else would we continually sign up for this kind of work incarnation after incarnation!?!

For Lightworkers, the time is NOW (and yesterday!) to wake up and follow “that little voice within”—because that voice is what will guide you to where you need to be, and to what you are here to do, to facilitate our progress here on Earth during this Shift. There are many roles to play and for the Shift, and what may seem simple to many may well be the most important jobs to be done. So don’t be disappointed if the “little voice within” guides you to simply bring in and hold the light in certain places of the globe, or asks you to send more positive vibrations out to those around you at work and at home by being nicer and smiling more. Simple isn’t always easy, as I well know! Smiling at people in the grocery store after a crazy day at work continues to be a challenge for me, but once I get started smiling in the cereal aisle, I always feel happier.

Many Lightworkers are already awake and many are currently waking up. Some are moving forward and some are stagnant because they are afraid of the changes taking place around us. It’s much more challenging for us to get our bearings once we’re on this side of the veil striving to wake up while dealing with everyday life. It’s so much easier for us to know what to do when we’re sitting at the planning table getting ready to pop into our new bodies because we’re awake then and we understand the big picture. Also, when we’re on this side of the veil, we have to deal with something we don’t have to face on the other side--an extremely strong negative force that we call fear. Fear gets in our way, and even the most experienced and decorated of Lightworkers has trouble facing the astonishing amount of fear that exists here and is put out into the atmosphere every day of our lives. And that brings us to the purpose of this article, some advice for Lightworkers on how to overcome fear so we can move past it and “get r done” as Larry the Cable Guy so eloquently puts it!

Let’s start by recognizing fear for what it is—a negative force that exists on this planet, and one that we can extinguish like a campfire at scout camp, IF we choose to. Dealing with our fears or not dealing with them—it’s a conscious choice that we make, and making the decision to face our fears is a massive step forward when it comes to taking control of our lives and expediting our spiritual growth.

One of the reasons that fear is able to take hold of us the way it does is because the majority of us try to avoid it, instead of facing it head on. You already know that the universe gives us whatever it is we focus on, so it’s no surprise that we must train ourselves to focus on the things we truly want, not what we don't want. Now comes the tricky part: By trying to avoid what we fear, we spend a lot of time thinking about what we fear. Thinking and talking about things is how we communicate with the Universe, and whatever we dwell on, the Universe interprets as a message that this is what we want in our lives. And the Universe is going to give it to us! This is why we have to be careful about what we put out to the universe: for example, we could say that we don’t want to be out of a job, and then think about nothing else BUT being out of a job, and what do you think the universe will make happen for us? We’ll be filing for unemployment insurance in no time because that’s what the Universe thinks we want.

I’ve said many times in articles and workshops that my guide group wants us to know that our thoughts and words are becoming more and more powerful every day. What we think about is what we get—what we think about is what we draw to ourselves. We can say one thing out loud but really think the opposite and guess what we will get? Human beingsareTHAT POWERFUL! I know this is true from personal experience. In October 2008, I had to take a 20% pay cut at work. Every single day I thought about that pay cut, and I put a lot of energy into talking about it to everyone I came in contact with. It was the first thing I thought about when I woke up and the last thing I thought about before I went to sleep. So why was I surprised when I got a second pay cut, and it was bigger than the first one!! The Universe gave me what it thought I wanted! Understanding my responsibility in what happened to me, and recognizing and letting go of my fear of pay cuts, are the first steps for me to bring my income back to its former level. I figure if I was strong enough to bring myself pay cuts, I'm strong enough to bring myself raises!

So recognizeyourpower, acknowledge that you are a powerful being, and then use that power to overcome your fears. We all have the power to turn fear, which again is a form of negative energy, into positive energy. More positive energy will benefit us, those around us, and our entire planet. We can all transmute negative energy into positive energy by facing our fears and then letting them go. This is a skill we will get better and better at--just like spotting windows of opportunity and relationship villains*.

Facing our fears makes us more powerful and more in control of our own lives. To develop this skill, start by defining exactly what it is that you’re afraid of—you have to know what it is, in order to counteract or neutralize it. Once you know exactly what it is that you’re afraid of, recognize it, and let it go. Stop dwelling on it. If you have trouble letting it go, meditate on how to neutralize your fear and listen to that little voice within. That little voice is your higher self—the part of us that’s not incarnated—the part of us that can still see the big picture and purpose for this incarnation. That little voice is therefore in the cat bird seat when it comes to giving us guidance.

A final piece of advice: There are support groups for everything these days, and I love them, but please don’t allow yourself to get bogged down talking to others whorevelin their fear(s). For some people, they’ve been afraid so long that their fear is now familiar and comfortable to them, and they aren’t really interested in making changes—they just like to talk about what they’re afraid of. And fear is like the common cold—if we’re not careful, we can easily pick up someone else’s fears, internalize them, be stuck with them ourselves, AND pass them on to others.

No one can face your fears for you, it’s something you have to do for yourself; remember, part of waking up is taking responsibility for moving your life forward, which has the great side benefit of accelerating spiritual growth. The bottom line when it comes to fear: face it, neutralize it, and move on.

Thanks, Sherri, for sharing this important hub with us. We are at a point in history when we can no longer hide from our fears. We have to face our shadow self. We can no longer sweep our problems under the rug. We are powerful beings that can overcome our fears. We also have the help of the loving Universe.
