Release the Shadow of Fear, Embrace the Light: Part One

Shadow-door-lightLast week I encouraged you to spend five minutes in prayer and meditation assessing the ways in which you might be blocking your blessings. I asked you to get quiet and still to hear what Spirit tells you about what you are holding on to that is blocking you from an abundant, spirit-filled life.

This week I am lead to remind you (and myself) those things, thoughts and people who perpetuate an illusion of distance between us and God hinders our spiritual growth and development. We are hindered not because God is no longer present in our lives. God’s promise is that He’s ever-present. The Creator is always with us and will never forsake us. We are hindered because we erroneously believe we are alone, unprotected, unlovable or unloved and that state of being (READ: confusion) cannot support God’s love. This causes fear. Fear leads to a lack of faith in God’s promises and to a host of emotional, psychological, physical and spiritual “dis-ease” and dysfunction.

So today spend five minutes reflecting on the things, thoughts and people in your life that you’ve empowered to steal your SHINE; or as others have described it those things that are False Evidence Appearing Real (READ: F.E.A.R.). Release fear’s presence in your life. Replace fear with positive affirmation about the truth of who you are, WHOSE you are and what you are capable of being and doing.

It’s too true to be trite … YOU ARE AN AWESOME AND WONDERFUL AND AMAZING EXPRESSION OF THE ONE WHO CREATED YOU, THE ONE WITH WHOM YOU NOW JOIN TO CO-CREATE AND PERPETUATE GOD’S LOVE HERE ON EARTH.

Remember:  “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” 3 John 1:2

So anything that casts doubt on that spiritual reality – is a fear-based lie; and as Marianne Williamson says, a call for the return to love [God]. Again, I affirm the time has come to RELEASE it. All of it. There is no shadow of fear that can exist when the light of Spirit is fully present in all of its shining glory. Release the shadow of fear, embrace the Light!

Tools for releasing fear-based blocks keeping you from abundance:

It is commonly understood that fear underlies many emotional issues and spiritual disconnect. So identifying your fears may be the key to releasing you from the bondage of lack and limitation. Here are some tools to help you release fears of particular relevance given all the chatter about the current financial condition in the U.S. (remember, from a spiritual perspective there is NO lack or crisis):
