Each and every moment is a moment of co-creation.
Moving from Fear to Compassion
So often, when we are in periods of transition or trying to create something new and are uncertain yet of how and what it might look like, we go into fear or into expectations of how we think things will occur based upon past experiences. And when we do this, we reclaim the old: what we imagine, or what we think will happen based upon the past, is what we create, is what we end up inviting into our lives vibrationally. Though we don't intend to, we re-claim the old, and then we think we 'prove' to ourselves nothing really changes, that we don't deserve something new, something other.
Understand, this does not have to be the case. We can claim the new–we can choose love and excitement rather than fear. We can choose compassion rather than anger. Understand, each moment, each decision we make in a moment, is an act of co-creation, is a moment in which we're inviting our experiences in, a moment in which we are creating our reality.
When you go into fear, ask what the fear is, the resistance, or the anger, or the frustration is trying to show you. And ask where did you learn this so you can release it. Our emotions are our allies, they are actually our gifts to ourselves. They are trying to show us where we can choose differently–heal old wounds instead of remaining in pain, or move beyond the limitations of what we've known, been. They are trying to show us where we can move out of old expectations, old hurts, or old judgements of ourselves and others.
In moments of fear, be compassionate with yourself–don't push the fear, worry, or anger away or down... Instead, take a deep breath in and invite yourself in with open arms, invite yourself in with love..."I invite you in...[your name] with open arms. I invite you in with love..." And imagine inviting yourself into your heart. When we actually pronounce our own names and envision ourselves welcoming ourselves into our hearts, we are activating our heart energies. We are able to be compassionate with ourselves... We can say, "It's Ok...I've got this. I'm here with you. We can do this..."
I invite you in...[your name] with open arms. I invite you in with love...
When we offer ourselves compassion, we are able to learn and release the old instead of claiming it back into being. When we move from fear to compassion for ourselves, we can then look up and see the world differently, see our circumstances or choices differently because we are not looking through the lens of fear or limitation. Instead of limiting ourselves out of fear, or insisting upon the old–"I'm the one who was hurt..or, I'm the one who was wronged and so therefore I expect to be wronged again..."–we can actually offer these old ideas or judgments of ourselves up to Source. "I offer you up with love, ease and grace... I offer you up with gratitude for what you have shown me." We can release the old and welcome the new without fear or judgement. And we retain the wisdom of our experiences.
I offer you up with love, ease and grace...
I offer you up with gratitude for what you have shown me.
When we move from fear to compassion for ourselves, and release the old, we can move into the act of creation with joy, love, wonder, and play. We can allow ourselves the freedom to choose and create the new. We can choose love and co-creation instead of fear. This is what real courage looks like–it is not simply mustering up a greater force than the fear. It is transmuting the fear into love, into joy and gratitude...
