I’m in New York on my way home from 2 days of amazing training with my business mentor and 50 other entrepreneurs in my MasterMind Group.
One of the topics we talked about was fear. Fear is a major indicator of separation from Source and Universal Intelligence. When you are experiencing fear, and even worries and concerns, you are not experiencing trust, love, and certainly not joy…you are not connected to Source, to the Universal Love and Intelligence that is always flowing and always available.
Fear is one of those things that pops up in our experience totally justified, totally normal, and usually totally automatically. The key is to be conscious and aware of the “automatic” thoughts popping up in our heads in reaction to our experiences in the world.
Here’s a very simple example from my life just this week! When I got to Chicago’s O’Hare airport for my connecting flight to New York, I arrived to find the flight was delayed 2 hours! My initial reaction was not a positive one – I was meeting people in New York, had a car scheduled, and really wanted to get to my hotel in Connecticut 2 hours earlier – so initially, I wasn’t very happy. However (after much practice in my life) I know that everything happens for a reason and is there to serve me.
I shifted my perspective and began looking for solutions and for how this event was serving me: I found out the reason for the delay (inclement weather in New York), I realized that everyone else I’ll be meeting in New York would also be delayed, that my car could be easily scheduled 2 hours later, AND that I could actually enjoy my time at the airport (I called a few friends, worked on this newsletter, and had a nice leisurely lunch) – well, the delay was practically a gift and I got to New York relaxed, safe and sound.
