WRITTEN VERSION OF THE SEMINAR
Gosh this subject is so much bigger than I had planned and with SUCH a wide impact on health, on abundance, on relationships, on safety and anything else you can think of too.
“Live life fearlessly” was the strongest advice that Anita De Moorjani brought us in her extraordinary book “Dying to Be Me”. From her vividly expanded consciousness of her near death experience this is, in her opinion, the biggest key to a happy and well lived life. I loved this lady’s book – it’s become a “go to” book for me to read bits of again and again.
I wrote in that email last week – “that’s great advice and a lovely idea – but how the heck do we actually DO that?” And what does it mean to all the important parts of our life?
You Live Life Fearlessly by listening to – and taking action on – your Inner Guidance system to keep you mentally, emotionally and physically safe – both BEing safe and FEELING safe.
I’ve had some very interesting, very lovely visitors working here in the last couple of weeks – deeply spiritual people, whose beliefs, although compatible in many ways, in some things are quite different to mine – they have quite a different view of emotions. And what I have noticed, is that they too have a whole bunch of “small” fears that are impacting on their lives. Like a lot of Australians too, they are afraid of the sun and getting burnt by the sun. Australian advertisements about avoiding sun and cancer caused by the sun have made us Aussies into one of the largest Vitamin D deficient people in the world. And lack of Vitamin D is one of the biggest causes of depression in the world as well as the cause of bone and other health problems, many serious. How insane is that, when we have in this country, all this amazing all the sunshine to manufacture Vitamin D from the sun? My visitors were afraid of bacteria in the river when I took them for a swim on a hot day. They were afraid of their little boy catching cold from the cold river water. Noticing these things has brought to my attention some of my own unattended to fears as well. 🙂
And yet, they found it very difficult to take me seriously when I insisted that their 6 year old was not allowed in the paddock with the horse herd without me or his father (who has some small experience with his brothers horses) and gosh I expect I am not the only person here who has had experiences where people thought they knew more about horses than they really did and in fact were not safe at all.
And the superb mother who worries about bacteria in the water and the effect of cold water on the skin was completely happy for her 6 year old son to open the horse gate by himself without anybody else there (lucky it was only Bobby who pushed past him) and was even a bit upset (but so very sweet, cos she’s a gorgeous lady) about my stern words (for the third time) that he MUST NOT EVER EVER go in the horse paddock without me or his father. Her conviction of his safety under all circumstances comes from insights in a meditation (such strong truth for all of us hey?) that young Rafael will happily fulfill his destiny no matter what happens to him in his life. She’s had that landed deeply into her conscious mind many years ago and lives that philosophy, at least around accidents, if not bacteria. Smiling here…
YOU ATTRACT WHAT YOU ARE AFRAID OF
The Universal Law of Attraction means that you attract what you are afraid of, specially when you have fearful attention on it, so here’s me trying to balance MY safety protocols without trying to frighten them and I gotta’ tell you it’s been a balancing act that I have not been completely successful with and am still working my way through, being Present as much as possible (gosh I’m getting lots of practice!), aiming at flowing with my actions in the moment, knowing that these circumstances have a blessing in them if I can only find it right now!
What has come to me as I’ve been working my way through this week and from my own experiences noticing all kinds of “small” fears of my own, is that there IS the reality of potential injury to a six year old, there IS the reality of sugar causing an allergic type response in my body, there IS the reality of the problem with the ozone layer meaning that over exposure to the sun at certain times of the day can cause skin cancer, there IS the reality of a loved one losing their job; there IS the reality of some toxins being carcinogenic.
AND YET THERE IS ANOTHER REALITY
And then there is yet another reality that we can vibrate those fears in such a way that my body vibrates the sugar with seemingly no ill effects (time will prove the truth of that), there IS yet another reality that I have personally seen, of people who laid with their face tipped back to the summer sun for hours in the company of a group of Tibetan monks and did not get burnt and there is another reality that some people can work with toxic material, even asbestos and not suffer ill effects and there is another reality that has people losing one job only as a catalyst for a better, more happy one and yet another reality of the law of attraction that has some children allowed to do things that make my hair stand on end and move through those circumstances in complete safety.
No matter whether we agree with such casual confidence ( and I am SURELY not trying to change any opinion you have on this issue!), we all know many, many families – probably most families actually – that DO treat their children so casually and comfortably in that casualness and never have anything serious go wrong. I have a dear friend who was turned loose on her pony at 6 years old and was all over the town and the beaches in New Zealand with that pony for years by herself and that casual confidence never did her any harm.
SO WHERE IS THE LINE?
Here’s where I think the line is. If sugar is still reacting on me allergically, I had better be physically careful to keep my intake very low until I have cleared up all my stuff around it and can vibrate the energy of it easily and then I am listening to my body for how much I can enjoy. (For your information that’s where I am very happily now.)
If I am afraid of toxins causing cancer, then I had better find my confidence and my feeling of safety by either avoiding those toxins or following any other action that comes up in a Quiet Mind, while expanding my understanding of the Truth around those fears until it’s an effortless non fear/ non issue.
If I am truly afraid of this child being hurt (and not just being a control freak) then I have to take MY guided action on it until I DO have a feeling of confidence and safety or I WILL be attracting an accident. Does that make sense? If I allow these parents to follow that confident casualness and I am feeling afraid for this child, then it is simply not OK to do nothing. I HAVE to get to the bottom of that fear, whether it”s real in the Present moment or not, so that I am not contributing to a potential accident.
My oh my, I did manifest recently to live life fearlessly and it seems that All That Is, has sent me yet another change place! 🙂
What do I NOT do?
I DO NOT ignore my Not Quite Rights. Ignoring our feelings, ignoring our Inner Guidance system, is not what is meant by “live life fearlessly”.
I DO NOT hand my power to other people by ignoring my own Inner Guidance system. My life, my path to my goals and dreams in life, my past history, my old emotional stresses and tensions – all is unique to me. So the combination of handing my safety over to others and ignoring my own wisdom in the process is unlikely to bring me much progress.
I DO NOT ignore my Not Quite Rights, even when experienced people say different or even when people who may be very wise in other circumstances say different. I DO Quiet Mind in these circumstances to make sure that I do not have an old fear of my own getting in the way of good information.
I DO NOT brush off my own Inner Guidance as not important. If you are Present, this Inner Guidance is your connection to the divine, if you are Present, with your attention inside your body as you have been taught, this is you hearing /experiencing your connection to The Universe, your connection to God, your connection to All That Is – for your unique circumstances. 🙂
I DO NOT push other people into my opinion. I DO Hold Space for them and I DO Quiet Mind for a Third Way, a third solution to conflict or potential conflict if that’s appropriate. See Week … of the Happiness program to refresh your memory of The Third Way.
I get closer and closer to living life fearlessly by:
- listening to my early warning signal that something is Not Quite Right;
- taking action to keep my friend safe – for example by pulling my friend out of the way of that bus coming down the road;
- by noticing my friend’s need to do life differently to me, so that my advice is not at all useful to them;
- by understanding the message of my fear and not getting on that horse until it is ready for me, whether I have to do some more preparation or whether I have to wait for later today, tomorrow or even another day,
- by noticing and deciding to understand the feel good Truth of each big AND SMALL fear in my life – whether that’s something from the past that is still affecting me now or whether it’s happening now in the Present,
- by more and more being able to tell the difference between fear and excitement and drive the change places of my life more easily by following my excitement.
And we live life more and more fearlessly by Quietening our Mind regularly, in all the different ways that we can do that, so as to give ourselves the opportunity for the gently sliding understandings or the ahhaaa moments.
Until one day… 🙂 🙂 🙂
I started to vibrate sugar in my body rather my body resisting the energy of it. Wow… what an AMAZING feeling that is!
And I have started vibrating other fears and emotions as well. This vibration is MY version of what it feels like to have no resistance to the physicality of the sugar and no harm. I don’t know how YOU are going to experience that “no resistance”. 🙂
OK folks, let’s have a chat about any fears that you may have noticed recently and then we’ll do a Quiet Mind on the one that’s the highest priority for you right now. As always, make sure that you feel good about the Quiet Mind and what you’re working on as well! 🙂
