There are only two states of mind that exist - Love and Fear.
The key to spiritual awakening and transformation lies at the understanding and awareness of these two states that our minds constantly switches between. Love is of God and Spirit, whereas Fear is of Ego and body conciousness.
At some point in everyone's life we come to an awareness and realisation that we suffer from Fear and loss of some description. That form can come through as loss of a relationship, loss of wealth/material possessions, loss of a career/job and can include many, many more ideas of what we consider to be of importance and value in this World.
You may have heard the Buddha's teaching "Attachment is the cause of all suffering". I personally can agree to that powerful statement, that when my Ego and mind have created Fear, it is generally always about the loss of something or someone in my life. And the Ego can be very clever in persuading and trying to convince us that we are separate from Love and God....This is of course is impossible.
Love is of God, and if God is Love and we are created in that likeness and image as Spiritual beings, then we too are Love at our very nature. We all know the feeling when we are in the flow of Love and Grace. We feel harmonious, positive, joyful and can sit within the effortless feeling that we can let go and allow things to flow in our lives. This is Love in action.....This is our natural state. Fear is the complete opposite of this powerful and beautiful emotion.
Through our daily meditation practices and calling on the Angels, Holy Spirit and other ascended guides and teachers through Spirit, we reconnect back to Love, Peace and stillness. We come back to our original nature and we create balance within as we understand and remember the truth of who we really are. We can allow the Ego to let go of fearful thoughts and ideas and let God come back into our hearts and minds.
Another powerful technique is to simply tell the mind is "I am a being of Light, I am a Soul, I am Love, I am Eternal". To repeat this mantra and spiritual truth dispels the voice of the Ego and calms the mind so we can rest back into Peace and Love.
And finally, if you are still experiencing difficulties reconnecting to Love, Reiki is a wonderful modality to calm the body, mind and Spirit. Visualising pink light around the chest/heart Chakra can also be very beneficial.
So next time you find yourself feeling fearful or worried/anxious just be gentle with yourself and reconnect back within your heart to feel Love's awareness once again.
