Last night, just before going to bed , I watched " Boston Legal ". One of the lawyers there was suffering from night terrors, a form of sleep walking during a nightmare and probably caused by stress. He woke up standing on a ledge outside his bedroom window hundreds of feet above the ground !!
So these fearful thoughts were on my mind just before going to bed and I couldn't help thinking the thought " What if this happens to me and I try to jump off my balcony naked as the day I was born " !!!! hehehe I 'm laughing now , but I seriously considered moving a chair or something heavy in front of the balcony door. That's the power of fear for you !
The text below is written by Mark Myre and I think it makes sense. I would add these comments to his 2 fear / anxiety buster suggestions:
" What am I feeling right now? " I would suggest , before naming the feeling , simply stay with the feeling and breathe through it .
" How can I feel just a little bit better? "I would suggest , question the thought form by asking "Is so? "
This works well for me when fear rears its ugly head especially in the middle of the night .
" Anxiety and depression are symptoms. Somewhat like hunger pains. Dealing with life - (which includes depression and anxiety!) - involves awareness of the present moment. Life didn't happen last night while you were watching TV. Life is happening right now in this present moment of time as you're reading these words.
You don't deal with your anxiety yesterday. And you can't deal with it tomorrow. You can only do the best you can in this present moment. For example, what are you feeling right now as you read these words? And is there any way you could feel just a little bit better? If you keep these two questions in mind, you'll be laying the foundation for a life free from depression and anxiety.
* What am I feeling right now? * How can I feel just a little bit better?
That's where it begins. Of course, there are MANY things you can and should do if you want to feel better. But keep in mind it's always a moment-by-moment thing. If you'll be responsible for what you're feeling *right now* - that will go a long way towards preventing the crisis or the avalanche or the sabotage of depression and anxiety. Not being responsible for what you're feeling right now is like building your house on a sandy foundation. You never know when your life will come crashing down around you.
While you can end your current depression and/or anxiety by taking various actions, you KEEP IT FROM COMING BACK by accepting responsibility for what you're feeling in the present moment. Accept and embrace WHATEVER you're feeling right now. Then release it so you can reach for a slightly better thought/feeling. It all happens right now! "
Personal power and authority issues are connected to the third chakra. The colour of the third chakra is YELLOW. The third chakra furthers the development of self-esteem and personality, separate from your tribal identity. This is where you learn to draw and maintain strong boundaries and a personal code of honour.
Affirmations help in healing and balancing process. I confess I have always had problems with authority figures , which is why I find this particular affirmation so refreshing and helpful.
I am the main authority in my world. No person, place, or thing has any power over me, for I am the only thinker in my mind. As a child, I accepted authority figures as gods. Now I am learning to take back my power and become my own authority figure. I accept myself as a powerful, responsible being. As I meditate every morning, I get in touch with my own inner wisdom. The school of life is deeply fulfilling as I come to know that we are all students and all teachers. We each have come to learn something and to teach something. As I listen to my thoughts, I gently guide my mind toward trusting my own Inner Wisdom. I grow and blossom and entrust all my affairs on Earth to the Divine Source. All is well. I am the author of my life.
Ask and it is given Since Every Request Is Granted, There Is No Competition Each point of view matters; every request is granted; and as this amazing Universe unerringly expands, there is no end to the Universal resources that fulfill these requests. And there is no end to the answers to the never-ending stream of questions—and for that reason, there is no competition.
It is not possible for someone else to receive the resources that were meant for you, and you cannot selfishly squander resources that were intended for someone else. All desires are answered; all requests are granted, and no one is left unanswered, unloved, or unfulfilled. When you stay aligned with your Energy Stream, you always win, and somebody else does not have to lose for you to win. There is always enough.
Sometimes our physical friends have a difficult time remembering this truth because they may experience some shortage in their experience, or observe it in the experience of another. But what they are witnessing is not an evidence of shortage or a lack of resources, but instead the disallowance of the receiving of the resources that have been requested and answered.
Step 1 has occurred: The asking is in place. Step 2 has occurred: The answering is in place. But Step 3, the allowing, has not occurred.
If someone is not receiving what they are asking for, it is not because there is a shortage of resources; it can only be that the person holding the desire is out of alignment with their own request. There is no shortage. There is no lack. There is no competition for resources. There is only the allowing or the disallowing of that which you are asking for.
Ask and It Is Given is the bestselling book by Esther and Jerry Hicks on the teachings of Abraham.
"You cannot be joyful without spreading your joy. You cannot be sad without spreading your sadness. You cannot be well without spreading your wellness. You cannot be sick without spreading your sickness. You cannot be poor without spreading your poverty. You cannot be prosperous without spreading your prosperity. Whatever you be, you exude to the ends of the Universe. The entire Universe benefits by that which you be."Expressed by Abraham-HicksSelected by Jerry and Esther Hicks
