Transcending fear and negativity can be challenging when we are constantly bombarded with negative words, messages, and images. Yet, we can lift out of this toxicity by connecting to a higher power or divine source (whatever that means to us) through our hearts. Many of us feel adrift and detached, having lost our spiritual compass and any kind of higher guidance. We may wander aimlessly through life, waiting for something to fill the spiritual void we experience. Thus, we try to shift the burden of responsibility for our spiritual awakening onto others and do not acknowledge the innate power we have to create it for ourselves.
From the time we are born, we acquire attitudes, mind-sets, and behaviors that have nothing to do with the divine energy of love that we are. If we are going to transform our world to one of peace and harmony, we must recognize that we are our own power source, and channel this power for good. Our true power originates from within and initiates our reality. As co-creators, we can wield this power to make soul-hearted rather than self-centered choices and stop relinquishing our power to others or our external circumstances. When we trust our divine connection to source, and are aware of love flowing through us, we are able to channel it to support the fullest expression of ourselves, others, and our planet.
Here are 4 Ways to Transcend Fear and Negativity:
- View Life Through the Lens of Higher Awareness: Like a periscope on a submarine, you can lift your gaze out of the shadowy aspects of human consciousness and obtain a more elevated, spiritual perspective. Through this illuminated view, you will see that you are, first and foremost, a spiritual being navigating the sea of human processes. When you act from this perspective, you move beyond positions of good/ bad, win/lose, and right/wrong, and not fight those who have fear-based polarized patterns, but rather to join in sacred community with those who have already committed their lives to love, peace, and equality.
- Make Inspired Choices in Alignment with Your Soul’s Path: You also must take responsibility for your life. Recognizing that you are accountable for your life through your choices can result in a tremendous shift. Realize how every choice you make today defines your future and affects the future of your world. Because every choice you make either adds to or detracts from the overall quality of your life and the world in which you live, it’s essential that you make more impeccable choices in all areas of your life. Ask yourself: “What would my soul choose?” Then, choose what spiritually aligns with your heart and soul.
- Practice Compassionate Detachment with Others. Open your heart in compassion while avoiding getting caught up in the suffering of everyday life. Focus your energies on the positive, stay grounded and steady in your choices and release anyone or anything that no longer serves us. Create energetic boundaries so that you are not sucked into the whirlwind of anger, fear, and negativity that may be swirling around you. Because you tune in energetically to your environment, you have to be discerning about the people you spend time with, the environments you inhabit, and consciously consider where you live, work, and spend most of your time.
- Take a Media Break: Just turn on the television, read the newspaper, or surf the Internet to see that you are constantly bombarded with negative words, messages, and images. You may even find yourself addicted to the incessant drama of the world, if not your own negative processes. You actually reinforce this negativity when you commiserate with friends, family, and co-workers who drain your positive energy. “Misery loves company,” as it is said, and all it takes to empower negativity is more negativity.
We are being called to create a global initiative of love for humanity. The toxic cloud of negativity can no longer hang over the planet like a suffocating blanket of pollution. To transcend this dark cloud of unenlightened, unconscious thinking, we must invite each person to become a drop in the vast ocean of love by taking responsibility for their choices, and practicing compassion, and kindness. Through our collective participation, we will transcend fear and negativity, and create a conscious evolution to the soul of love.
