Day 119

Affirmation:

I am here in this moment and I feel safe.

I am here in this moment and I feel secure.

I am here in this moment and I feel at ease.

I am here in this moment and I am safe.

I am here in this moment and I am secure.

I am here in this moment and I am at ease.


Fear always arises in the present moment but is never about circumstances that exist in the present moment. The present circumstances are nothing more than triggers or precipitating factors for fear.  Fear is the result of anticipatory thoughts of a future, yet-to-happen experience.

We can consider any fear – from a fear of flying to a fear of abandonment – and in each instance the fear is the result of a thought of what could happen in a future time.  Once a fear is realized it disappears or is replaced by a new fear. Fear is always moving forward into the next possible point in time and the experience that may arise. For instance, a person who is afraid of walking alone at night is actually afraid of what may happen to them while walking, such as being robbed.  But should they find themselves being robbed, the fear of being robbed will be replaced by a new fear, perhaps of being injured.  And if injured, the fear of being injured will be replaced by a new fear of another as yet realized experience.

So what does all this mean?  It means that we can overcome our fears when we recognize that fear is an anticipatory response that can only exist outside the present moment.  This awareness means that we can live outside of fear when we understand and accept that even while in the midst of our most feared experience we would not be afraid of that current experience.  We cannot avoid the inevitable experiences that cause us anxiety and distress, but we can work toward eliminating the fear we create and experience as the result of living in a future yet-to-be by holding ourselves in a present moment mindset – a place where fear does not exist.

Day 240

Affirmation:

I have no need to control others.

I am empowered.

I do not give my power away to others.

I am empowered.

___________

Empowerment is what we feel when we are feeling safe, self-confident, and are experiencing the world outside of our egos.  Empowerment  feels like a sanctuary where there is no threat and no need to threaten.  When we feel empowered we feel in control of ourselves and our lives, but are not controlling.  Empowerment is rooted in self-acceptance and self-love.  Empowerment is found halfway between the need to overpower others and the need to be overpowered. It is the harmonious balance between the two extremes.  Everything we do, think, and feel comes from one of these places.  During the course of a day one might move back and forth between them several times.   Become aware of the place you are acting, thinking, and feeling from by asking yourself, “Am  I choosing from empowerment or the need to control?”  ”Am I feeling empowered or powerless?”    Guide yourself gently back to the balance point of empowerment if needed.
