Fear, as an emotion, is real and has been with humans since the beginning of time. Implementing a response to fear kept you alive and safe. But, fear also feeds on fear. If you choose to engage in that spiral, it will grow and put you in a space where everything is dangerous and ‘out to get you’.
As always, this is where The Universe offers you a choice. You can let fear run your life, letting fear take over and stop all forward movement and growth….or….you can acknowledge fear, thank it for its service and move through it. Keep in mind that it may be one of the most challenging things you do but, one of the most rewarding! Even through the chaos fear is creating on your Earth plane in this moment, if you look closely enough, you can see the light on the other side. Always focus on the light and know you are supported every step of the way. ~ Creator
The Creator Writings
Dear Ones, your faith and trust, together, allow you to experience the feeling of being safe, loved, and guided. When you feel safe, loved, and guided it is far easier for you to be safe, loving guides for others, as well. It is an energy that spreads out – that stabilizes, balances, and serves – beautifully and consistently, and is the core foundation that you seek. ~Archangel Gabriel
