Peaceful Mind & Loving Heart

“Fear is unconsciousness; once you begin to accept that fear is unconsciousness of your true self, you will inevitably take the next step, which is to become aware that unconsciousness is simply the denial of something that you feel or have felt in your heart, or what you think or have thought in your mind.”  COL bk.2, 19:II

We feel with our heart; we think with our mind.  And both are necessary to good living.  Fear turns us aside from good living.  Here, in Choose Only Love, we see fear described as “unconsciousness.”  Certainly we are not in our right mind and not feeling blessed in our heart when we fear.  And so many of us have fears that just won’t leave us alone.

A friend gave me a lovely prayer that is apropos to this situation: “May I have peace in my mind and love in my heart.”  She recommended this maxim as a mantra to help in drifting off to sleep.  But it can be used anything that fear rears its ugly head.  We can’t get over all our fears just by wishing them away, but over time, when we walk back to God, fears diminish and eventually fade from view.

When we are truly ready to relinquish fear, the right reading will find its way into our library.  And we will know the right prayers to pray, the right form of communion to invite with our God.  When we live in the moment, conscious and aware of our being in this world, we invite fear to leave us.

Ask today for a lessening of fear.  When love takes over, fear always scurries away.

    I really resonate with your message here. Surrendering to, accepting and releasing fear comes in layers for me and my healing. It’s amazing how Spirit leads me back again, once I’m ready to overcome it. Thank you for sharing this, well done 👏

    Every word resonates. When we realise, accept, deal with and release our fears (which in itself is energy and one that needs its own freedom), it sets us free to see other aspects of our lives that need to shine. Thank you for sharing, Celia.

    Thank you so much for this post, Celia! With me this has come in stages. But with time, I know I’m getting very close to where I’d like to be. I’m much less afraid than what I used to be and that’s a great thing. But I haven’t quite made it to fearless yet! But I’m getting there!
