Someone just asked me what we can do to eradicate fear in society...Isn't that the million dollar question?
I love it, though! I love these discussions and questions. I love throwing out there another way to look at life. And I love hearing about how people are making a difference in the world.
Take a moment to ponder how often fear rules the day in society:
Fear of disease/accidents/trauma. Fear of any government taking/losing control. Fear of a group "winning" or "losing." Fear of not being heard. Fear of not having enough. Fear of war (which is a result of all these other fears)...
The list goes on and on.
(Incidentally, we, collectively, have not evolved out of survival mode despite rumors to the contrary. Had we, we wouldn't be having this discussion).
What can we do about this systemic, fear-based society we have created? (Yep, WE created this, just so we can uncreate it. Apparently we love a good challenge).
First, don't worry about what's going on "out there." All of this change starts with us. Take a look at where you hold fear: Around your family? Illness? Money? Future?
Then take a look at whether those situations are real (meaning you actually have facts to substantiate your fear), or if they're imagined (future possibilities that you have no evidence for).
Now focus only on those instances of fear that are "real." Picture them resolving themselves. Call upon others to come to the rescue and co-create with you. Imagine a plethora of opportunities as doors in front of you and choosing one (you don't have to necessarily know what's behind the door). Feel the solution. Feel the ease. Feel the relief. These positive feelings are your creative tools, just like fear is.
Remember, we create everything we live, and we co-create these situations with others. Create the solutions, it's just as easy as creating the problems. We were just never taught how to do it.
Imagine everyone doing this. Imagine everyone, individually, taking hold of their fears, real and imagined, and creating solutions. (Remember, a solution may simply involve releasing the fear). Imagine all of our corporate strongholds, government officials, and world power-holders releasing fear around winning/losing, control, lack or obedience.
We'd be living in a much different world. It's possible, and it starts within each of us.
Next time you are in a confrontational situation, ask the person what their fear is and identify yours. That's changing the world.
It's the solstice...a natural time of change. Who's ready to be a world-changer? I know I am. Let's do this!
Live in love,
Carrie, with a lot of Spiritual guidance!
