The other day my wife and I went for a swim during a thunderstorm. It felt wonderful. But on our way to the pool, I recalled the admonitions and warnings I received as a wee lad: swimming was one of the most dangerous things you could during a thunderstorm.
And yet Mamiko and I merrily went for a dip. Why? We had no fear. None whatsoever.
Neither one of us is afraid of dying. Plus, we’re both pretty confident in our understanding of our life blueprints and why we’re on this planet. And if being struck by lightning in a pool with a gorgeous view of the mountains is the exit strategy we scheduled into our life plans, then so be it. What a spectacular way to leave the Earth plane!
Most of us live in fear and it sucks. I know you know what I’m talking about.
We’re afraid it’s going to rain, afraid of arriving late, afraid of what someone might think about us. And that’s just the small stuff.
There’s the fear of losing someone, the fear of getting sick, the fear of dying. And when I use the word “fear,” I also mean doubt and worry. Those are just synonyms.
For some of us, we wake up with our worries (fears) and go to bed with them, each and every day. What an exhausting and unsatisfying way to live!
So what’s the alternative? Well, it is possible to live with very few or no fears.
I can tell you from direct, personal experience over the last 20 years that the simplest way to release your fears is to develop a wider perspective about life. Not just your life, life in general.
Once I started awakening spiritually, when I began realizing that most of life exists beyond the five physical senses, my fears started to melt away like frost in the morning sun. The big ones seemed to tumble first: the fear of death, the fear of spending my life alone, the fear that life was just a meaningless exercise in futility.
Since then I’ve been letting go of all sorts of minor fears and habits of worry. I’m not finished, of course, but I am much happier and more at peace than I was in my 30s. Freeing myself of fears has felt awesome.
I’ve learned that a fear is just a thought, and a thought can be changed. And I know that any fear can be healed, even ones we’ve held onto for decades or carried with us from previous lifetimes.
For me, learning about higher selves, the realm of spirit, and life blueprints has been the most liberating. With a larger, spiritual understanding, I know in my heart of hearts that life isn’t random. It’s a meticulous blend of exquisite planning, love, and the power of free will. There is truly nothing to fear.
Especially during thunderstorms. We get the entire pool to ourselves, at least for now.
