Challenging Fear with Trust and Self Referral
The best advice I was ever given about being afraid to do what I desired was "do it anyway." Think back on your greatest victories in your life and see if you can remember the moment you were afraid and yet went ahead anyway. It is just an instant, sometimes called a choice point. Once you take that first step, challenging the fear, the fear is left behind. It is nearly impossible to accomplish this action if you are not supporting yourself with clear and conscious intention. Bring your intentions to the forefront by asking yourself why you have the desires you have and what image you have of yourself in your desired future.
This conscious self-referral is necessary, for without it, many of your unconscious intentions will be fulfilled and you will feel that you are a victim or that life “just happens to you.” There is no joy in this because you are not in your personal power unless you are clearly aware of your intentions. Intention is the divine force of manifestation. Take the time to write down five conscious intentions you have (but remember the great saying "be careful of what you ask for").
True conscious intention begins and ends with you. Self-referral –having an intimate relationship with yourself– is your truth. Relate to what you wish to manifest only, and do not allow yourself to remain in object-referral because always relating to others means depending on their truth. There is no time or place for codependency, addiction, or negativity in this time of incredible expansive, joyous, and supportive energy.
It's all for you. Meditate, create, radiate. Accept your greatness and give back to life.
