Since the election, we have been filled with fear. As we face the Chaos of Trump and the unknown effects his actions will cause, fear is building. Our real fear isn’t all about Trump, but he is an easy focal point. We’re in the thick of it. In multiple levels of it. In ways we as humans have never experienced, even though we’ve lived previous lives in, and been conditioned by, the fear-mentality of the Piscean Age (fear being used as the main oppressive tool for the few to control the many).
After last year’s completion of a ten-year cycle (the last ten-year cycle of the Piscean Age), I’ve been finding people are now afraid to move forward. Our dreams and opportunities are possible in ways they haven’t been for a long time, but most of us are subconsciously afraid. We’ve been stopped from success for so long while we were doing our inner work, we’re in the fear of “What if I try and what I want still doesn’t happen or come to me?” We have to be careful with that mentality. It allows ego to take over to soothe and justify lack of motion. That makes forward motion not just delayed, but harder to start.
In October, 2012, I posted a newsletter on fear as we headed toward the “End of the World” on December 21, 2012. Of course, it wasn’t the “End of the World” but a transition into conscious evolution. The fear we experienced then is still with us now with a different focus. As we survived the 2012 transition, we will also survive what we’re facing now. It’s the same old fear cycle, just now turned up to eleven because we’re coming to the end of it and fear’s last gasp can be pretty intense. Here are some updated excerpts from that newsletter:
A little recap: for 2,000 years, fear was the mindset in religion, government, business, finance, parenting and even relationships, through retaliation, deprivation, punishment, and being ostracized. It was such a part of our daily lives, we weren’t even aware of it.
Add our current fear to that base fear. This is exemplified by our political situation, namely the Piscean Age hold-outs in charge who are freaking. They feel a change under their feet, have no control over it and don’t know what to do next. In reaction to that, many are subconsciously recalling dread-feelings of past lives when we experienced destruction and loss. Whether or not we’re consciously aware of these memories, we still feel them.
These feelings/memories are surfacing inside us now because there’s a gut recognition in the current intense change vibration that was last experienced during a previous intense change. The last change was more than likely a physical destruction. The fear vibe on us now isn’t necessarily related to physical disaster (i.e., a Third World War), it’s just the closest explanation we can get that matches the feeling we’ve lived through before.
So we have fear that’s based in 2,000 years of lessons, fear of the unknown of what’s coming up with the Chaos of Trump and fear from past life memories. That’s enough for anyone to deal with but it’s not all. Add in the fear we pick up from other people when their fear takes over and they desperately send it out into the world for someone else to fix. If we have an iota of fear within self, the energy cloud of fear from others identifies with that and attaches itself – the piggyback effect – and suddenly we have more fear than we can handle for reasons that don’t make sense.
So what do we do about our fears? We face them. That’s the simple and complicated answer. It’s not easy to do because there are so many levels. Therapists can work for years on fears and not always get to the bottom of them. And they’re being piled on freshly everyday. But here are a couple of suggestions that might help (above and beyond asking “Is this my fear?” to make sure you’re only dealing with what is yours).
Years ago, I read a book, don’t even remember the name, about two macho guys, friends, discovering a gold mine in South Africa in the late 19th century. One of them was caught in a cave in; it was days before there was a rescue. Afterward he found he was afraid of the dark, afraid to go to sleep. This strong, manly, self-aware guy was afraid for the first time in his life. That didn’t suit him at all. So, alone, with a single lantern, he went back to the cave, put the light out and sat in total darkness facing his fear of the cave-in, his fear of death, his inner demons, as long as it took for him to beat them.
I learned from that. Every time I experienced fear, from physical threats during riots in my high school in 1971, to my personal fear of not being good enough, I basically looked my fear right in the face and said, “Come and get me, show me your worst.” Then I let my imagination, which is prodigious, show me the fear and let me feel the worst case scenario. I found that I could live with that. And if I could live with the worst, I could definitely live with what was in front of me.
Try sitting in complete darkness and consciously let your fears make themselves clear to you. Leave enough time to really experience the total darkness and be open to safely face your fears. Look at where they came from (childhood, exhaustion, past lives). Use all your senses to experience the fears. Use sense memory. The least you’ll get is a new perspective. Sometimes being aware of what you fear is half the battle.
Here is a chant that has long been my preferred way of facing my fears. I am purposefully paraphrasing a piece from one of my favorite novels, “Dune” by Frank Herbert. It’s a technique his hero was taught to deal with fear. Purists don’t need to write back telling me I got it wrong, I have chosen to eliminate a line and change a word or two for my purpose.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration.
I face my fear.
I allow fear to pass through me.
Then I turn and see fear’s path,
And only I remain.
I’ve said this multiple times using all my senses to imagine the shadow of fear passing through me, even when I gave birth to my kids at home without drugs. For that I substituted the word “pain” for “fear” but either way, it’s worked for me every time.
This may not work for you as well as it has for me, but find something that does. Even if it’s nothing more than keeping a clear head amid the chaos. We are coming out of that fear mindset of the Piscean Age. But our “leaders”, who are losing their control over awakening humans and the world, are spreading the fear to keep themselves in power. Even on a daily basis, you can tell some people are riddled with fear because they have to control someone or something to make themselves think they’re secure.
Most of us have forgotten that we are fearless human beings. Try confronting your fear and get ready for positive things to fill that space in your heart. Then we can find comfort in darkness, we find balance with our shadow selves and are able to rock this transition that requires us to know our strength and fearlessness and face “The Trump Effect”, which is just a way of galvanizing change quickly so we can get on with our evolutionary progress.
In the end, we are all okay even though we might have to fight to know that. We now have to adapt quickly, but that’s to get us moving forward. Which is what we all came here to do.
With love and gratitude…
