In recent months I have had multiple conversations with many people from all walks of life. One common thread to those conversations seems to be fear. Fear of, for lack of a better term, the unknown.
In most of these conversations, I was hearing things like “I wake up in the middle of the night with anxiety” and “but if that happens then I don’t know what I’ll do” or, I hear statements like “I’m so worried about what could happen”. What I was hearing is that a lot of people tend to be afraid of what’s going to happen next without really knowing what’s going to happen. Most are approaching their future preparing for the worst possible outcome. They fear losing their job, losing their home, losing their spouse, losing their self respect and many others.
Let me be very clear, once a fear has been established in the mind, the chemical reaction has begun. The next phase is natural multiplication of cells within the body. These chemicals attached to the kinetic energy of the thought will become part of and multiply with, the cells. This is how your fears become realities. They become anxiety, stress, pains aches, tension, failing organs etc. When the fore mentioned ailments exist in your life, you are unable to think clearly, thus you make poor decisions. You are unable to see or fully take advantage of opportunity or you react poorly when interacting with others.
If educating yourself on the Law of Attraction you will find that the base premise says that like attracts like. This law tells us that the thing that is thought about will materialize. I’m going to go a step further here and say it’s not just what you’re focusing on, it’s also what emotion you are attaching to that focus. You see, I believe that there are only two emotions that can actually be attached to a thought and cause physical creation to happen; fear and love. All other emotions can ultimately be traced back to these two.
The reason that most individuals seem to be on such an emotional rollercoaster on a daily basis is because they just aren’t aware of how these minute by minute thoughts and emotions add up to a whole lot of energy and chemicals trying to multiply from within. This extremely mixed bag of chemicals and energy floating around in the body attaching to cells specifically to multiply, at the end of the day can add up to constant rolling waves of both happiness and despair that must play our over time.
Have you ever heard the expression “expect the best and prepare for the worst”? It amazes me how many people say they live by that credo yet in conversation you will hear statements like those I mentioned above. It appears to me that far too many people ignore the first part of the credo and stress themselves out about the second. I think it should read “expect the best OR prepare for the worst.”
Expect the best, focus on the best and react with the best of intentions. Know that nothing will ever show up in your life that you haven’t already played out in your mind. Every chance meeting, every opportunity, every fear and anything else you think about. Choosing to react the same way in reality as you did in your mind becomes the challenge. That’s where faith comes in.
