In The Face Of FEar
The news is full of “evacuations” – storms, explosions, natural and man made disasters.
That “news” can send a ripple of unstable panic and fear. Projecting yourself, your hearts, your attention into these situations, with a feeling of “that could happen to me and my loved ones at any time” and ensuing panic and ripples of heart strings being tugged, it has a way of destabilizing the ground you stand on.
For, it is true that anything could happen at any time. Storms, floods, gas main pressure and explosions, all these are out of our hands. HOWEVER – you do have your awareness field to manage and this is your interface, your “holo-deck” on which you project and experience the world.
If the room or house that you are in is flooding or on fire, take immediate corrective action.
If the room that you are standing in right now is strong and stable – then become that yourself.
If you project yourself and fill your energy field with an event that is not immediately in front of you, then you are in fact draining your own precious life-force, and bringing to you the exact thing that you focus on.
My personal practice in this area is to train and actively stay alert in my attention field. If indeed you are about to get on a plane that might crash, or in the path of danger, or driving the wrong route, your body will tell you. You will feel it in your gut, in your core. Your human sensory field is as finely tuned as any animal who migrates out of the path of an incoming storm. All the “data” and information you will ever need is constantly being signaled in your field.
Truth is, our minds, nervous systems and energy fields are so under constant bombardment daily – that we all need “practices” that clear the field. That hit the “reset” button. So that your awareness field instrumentation is finely tuned and in good working order. And that you are slowing down and quiet inside long enough to really listen to the signal.
Take a breath, close your eyes. Take another 10 or 50 or 100 breaths and feel yourself. Feel yourself settle into the chair. Or better yet, lay down on the floor and take a “reset” position of laying on your back with your knees bent and the feet set up right under the knees.
Breathe into your body.
Feel the belly rise and fall with your breath. Do this for a while. Relax into it.
Feel the floor under the back of your skull. Let the weight of your head get heavier with each breath.
Feel the ripples of your spine, where your body hits the floor under you, and where the spine arcs up and away from the floor.
Feel your feet. Direct your breath all the way to the feet.
You are safe.
You are secure.
You are here.
