You probably havel been surprised by some compelling situation that calls out your fearful side. Perhaps it was an over-due bill in the mail or a very real concern that you could lose your job. There are so many situation where fear can usurp all of your attention. The situation appears to be bigger than you are. This appears to be the situation that you always feared would come. It takes command of your very self. You are taken by the attraction of fear and it seems impossible to do anything but be a victim.
Then you may hear a faint, soft, breeze-of-a-voice, whisper that there is nothing to fear. You can’t yet take your focus off fear, though. You know better. This time things are really going to be bad. You knew it would come and here it comes!
The voice may be quiet but it holds its own strength and does not rely on you. It continues to urge you not to believe in the situation. This time you listen to this soft voice from within. You tacitly, at first, choose to create in your mind a happier scenario as to what is going to happen. You calm yourself and know that happiness is the only thing you wish to cling to. This fear contains no happiness. You cannot cling to this fear. You must let it go, even though it seems to envelop your entire being.
Maybe it was just a spark of a moment, but a moment it was and you turn your attention to something a bit brighter. You listen to some music. You wash the dishes in your kitchen or vacuum your floor. You like how you feel and you have heard that you can choose happy over fear. Fear tries to remind you of the situation and begs to get your attention.
This time, you will not believe in the fear. You tell yourself that fear is dark and happiness is light — bright light. You begin to sing a song you learned as a child, This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine! This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine! This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine, let it shine, all the time, let it shine. You begin to feel better and you know you are back in the happy zone.
And then comes the most amazing thing. Your whole situation vanishes. What you thought was going to happen, is transferred into an entirely different scenario. Instead of the bill being overdue, it has a credit on the collection line. Instead of you being fired, you are called in to participate in a new project and even get a raise. These things happen in the happy zone. And it’s available for everyone. Your decision to choose to focus on what you wanted and not on what you did not want changed everything right before your eyes.
Today, meet each challenge with a little confidence. Know you are a wonderful super someone who is still uncovering what is, very joyful and wishing to stay that way. Know you choose to live a life of love. Love is always the answer. Take it with you throughout this day.
