Q&A call on January 31, 2019
How do I stay in my power without fear? We have doubts, and we think maybe it’s too big for us. How do we own that? How do we stay in that power?
The Angel Raphael’s Answer:
It is that I am tapping into the vibrational frequency of the being that is asking this, and they are what would be considered riddled with fear and doubt and a feeling of unworthiness that overcomes them. In which they try very, very hard and are being diligent doing all the things in which they are supposed to in order to move forward and to be the Master Creator of who it is that they are. And yet they find themselves completely encased and swimming in a pool of fear.
And fear is something in which Sekhmet comes in and overcomes with her light and her power and her strength. But fear in the sense of where it was that it originated from was much like being out in the desert, in which you were in your vision quest, in which the lion perhaps approaches you, and fear rises up in your body to protect yourself. In which an innate knowing tells you to flee or to run away. For you come to the edge of the cliff and you look down, and you become very fearful that you could fall off, for the drop is far.
For there are things built in to the human consciousness and a reason for the fear, but that fear is around protection of the physical, emotional, and mental bodies. But it arose mostly to protect the physical.
And what has happened is that the collective human consciousness has gotten so caught up in the mind and the intellect and the thought as its primary focus–and it gets a lot of reward in that area, for it is very much revered and honored in society during this time in the human understanding–that fear gets caught in the mind. For fear can only live in the mind and the thought, as it is not the original fear that was intended to protect the body as it fled from danger.
And so when you identify with fear over and over again, it creates an emotion in the body, and the emotion is fear and anxiety and dread. And when the emotion rises, it brings thoughts of more fear. And when the thoughts of more fear begin to expand and expand, they drop into creating more emotional upheaval and anxiety, and you create what is perceived as a vicious cycle.
And so, from that place, this energy (person) is asking–they’re worried that if they’re a Master Creator, their experience and their thoughts are bringing forth into their reality their reality–then if they are based in fear all the time, they’re fearful that they’re creating something negative. And, of course, the fear of that is expanding it even more so.
But all that fear resides not in an actual place of truth, but in the illusion of the mind. And so in order to release it is to become the observer of it and to bring awareness to it and to find a place where you can step out of self and watch the fear.
And when you can step into a place of awareness, we want you to place the intention on the fear, which might seem counter-intuitive.
For when we speak of the energy of creating, often beings get confused that they are to create from force. But true creation comes from a place of surrendering. It is bringing intent and focus toward that which you are wanting to create, but opening up into a place of surrendering. And the surrendering part often gets negated.
So with this energy of fear, we ask you to place your attention on the fear and to feel it, and that might seem really scary. But if you can step into accepting the fear and witnessing it and bringing conscious awareness to it, you can move through it.
And as you surrender to it, it becomes your greatest teacher. For it teaches you and opens the doorway and pathway to walk through it. But you can’t walk through the fear if you are continuously trying to push it aside and forcefully focus on something other than what it is. The only way to get rid of it is actually to accept it, to feel it, for that is your way through it. That is where it becomes your teacher.
And when it becomes your teacher and you move through it, you step into conscious awareness. And you awaken to the realization that it only resides in the mind and the thought and that you are not the mind or the thought, but pure Source Energy of an awareness. And when you recognize that you are the awareness of the thought and you move the ego aside, then the fear has nothing to resist. And when it has nothing to resist and you are not fighting it, it disappears. For it is only there because there is resistance to what is.
For often I say to you, “That in which you resist creates suffering.” So, many of you find confusion around that in terms of creating your reality and accepting what is. But it is that the only place that you can truly step into the place of pure creation, to bring through–through conscious thought and intent–by spiraling up as we’ve done in our work in the past to create your reality, it’s from a place of openness in which the space and the thought is in conscious awareness.
And when you are sitting in conscious awareness, there is no fear because you are not projecting something that you are concerned about in the future because you are in the presence of the Now. And you not contemplating or fretting about the past.
So the only way through fear is to step in the presence of the conscious awareness of the Now moment and to feel–if you find that in the conscious awareness of any Now moment that you still feel in that moment recognizing that all is well–that you’re still riddled with fear. then you must face it, accept it, look at it, and experience it, know it. And in knowing it, we don’t mean re-enacting that in which you’re afraid of, but to step into allowing it to just be witnessed from the place of the observer which will allow you to surrender to it, which will allow you to move through it.
And in that, that rise of your consciousness and who you were meant to be will come through, for you will recognize it once you move through it as your greatest teacher.
