As humans we all know about fear, we have them to one degree or another. It’s part of the human test. And we are meant to pass these tests because our innate already has the answers. Well, try and tell that to someone in terror! Of course when we are at that point we are totally controlled by our fears.
I believe there is a benevolent force in the universe we call God. It is there to protect and serve us, but not everyone knows this or believes this. So how do we help ourselves and others to transcend our fears and control them before they control us? There are probably hundreds of self-help books, seminars and videos on this subject but we need to find what works for us, as we are all unique and our experiences are all very personal.
As I write this, I am guided to share a personal experience very few have heard. My Ancestors whisper to me how - for someone reading this, maybe many - it will transform their thinking so they may handle their fear.
My story begins when I was in my mid 30’s and I went on a road trip with a boyfriend. We were in Golden, Colorado, a place I had never been before. We were staying with friends of his I had never met. During the night we had argued and since this was happening in my less enlightened days, I stormed out of the apartment and drove off! Within an hour, I was cooled off but completely lost. It was maybe 1am and I started to try to find my way back.
I drove for hours and had no idea where I was. In those days there were no cell phones and additionally, I had no number for the people we were staying with ... I didn’t even know their names! Even if I found the courage to go pounding on someone's door begging for help, I had no idea of who to call or where the apartment was where I was staying. Additionally, I had drunk too much that night and they would have known and probably closed the door on me!
I was thousands of miles away from home in a town I did not know and I had no idea how to get out of there. Even if I went to the police, if I could figure out where the police station was, since we had never heard of GPS ... what would I tell them? I would say my boyfriend is staying with people somewhere and I don’t know where. I was terrified.
I parked the car on some street in a dark quiet residential area and cried so hard. I spoke in my heart to the powers that be and told them I was terrified and begged (yep, I begged) for help. I had not then learned how to call upon my Ancestors as I do today, that happened later and now I know they were there with me that night. So I called upon the universe, without even knowing it.
Within only a few minutes a force of energy, which is the best way I can describe it, began to ‘pull’ me. I started the car and began to let this force direct me. There were no thoughts in my mind, just a gentle but strong pull to go left, go straight, go right, etc. I did this for maybe half an hour then I reached a 4-way street. The ‘force’ pulled me left and for the first time my brain said ‘maybe I should turn right’. It only lasted a split second but I chose to follow the force. I turned left and drove maybe two blocks and there was the apartment!!!
Till this day I remember the feeling of awe and wonder and joy ... but most of all gratitude. I also remember saying to the powers that be, to this benevolent force, that I would never forget what it had done for me. I felt loved and guided and protected. What for me was most touching of all, is that it did not judge me. That was the strongest memory of that experience ... it just loved me and answered my call for help.
Over the years I have heard dozens of similar and even more profound stories. Some of you have your own. So the message for today is this:
Even when we are imperfect and foolish, we are loved beyond measure ... and every sincere cry for help is heard by a benevolent universe some of us call God. That is love at its grandest.
So if some of you reading this, or someone you know, is experiencing fear they seem not to be able to control, teach them to call upon this God Love Force, and it will come to lift you and them ... and it will because it must come when called. Did you know that? Isn’t that beautiful?
So say to this benevolent universe:
I call upon the God Love Force to lift this fear from me.
And it will...
Blessings to your beautiful and eternal Souls,
