Fear based energy is all actions, words, decisions and social media posts we as humans are acting upon because of external forces, which we feel has a power over us.
If you are afraid of something, you are acknowledging it has a power over you. How you react, is how your energy is directed.
What does fear based energy manifest as?
- The need to protect
- The need to destroy
- The need to defend
- The need to lash out
- The need to prove you are right
- The desire to hide or suppress
What do all these traits have in common?
So in our current society, the media specifically tells us what to be afraid of. A lot of us have our own opinions aside from the media, but the media is how we learn about current events. I will not go into media biases, because each side has its own agenda, but each side tells their audience what to be afraid of, even if it is not directly stated. The recent headlines of “Trump Passes Bill to Ban Abortion” makes us afraid for women’s rights, although the newspaper isn’t directly telling us to be afraid. The media knows you will click a headline that feeds into your fears. The media creates the anxiety by shaping the enemy.
Don't stop reading, just be more conscious. Observe these example headlines from a variety of American publications all covering the same story ::
The president, people with guns, the police, terrorism, immigrants, too many millennials taking selfies instead of getting real jobs, WHATEVER IT MAY BE all of these things have triggered a lot of fear in people. We are literally scared of having certain political conversations with our own friends and family because we are scared we will disagree with them and cause strains in the relationship.
The election was not the first situation to bring out the fear in people. Since 9-11 we have been living in a heightened fear based society. One of the main reasons, as we saw in Nazi Germany, is that having a common fear unites people. In America, both sides have their unified fears. For millennials, most of our lives have been in a fear based society, hence why most of us don't even remember the days where we didn't have to take our shoes off to get on airplanes. We have lived in a fear based energy for so long, it is normal.
There is a surplus of fear based energy being emitted and absorbed right now. Fear creates separation and separation dehumanizes that which we are afraid of. It is not us, it is the enemy. This energy extremely constraining. Having an entire society in a fight or flight response mind set, meaning they feel their is a threat to their survival, causes people to emit stress, anger and panic.
Fear based energy thrives off your insecurities in relation to power. Being in a position of power, means you are in a position of control. A LOT of people have major control issues. People are scared to be out of control. The current state of our country, is making people feel out of control.
Fear is a closed energy. Fear is a primitive energy. Fear resorts back to primal instincts we used to need in order to survive in the wild as hunters and gatherers. Fear based energy is tribal, its protective of its resources,it has a mine versus your's attitude. To be honest, I feel like we are all apes running around beating our chest and throwing bananas at anyone who doesn't agree with us. Americans are in survival mode. Fear and lack of control are vibrations being emitted at an extremely high frequency right now. Fear is a vibration that is being absorbed at an extremely alarming rate.
Fear is a perception, and perceptions can be shifted.
You can shift out of a fear based perception when you take a step back and realize fear is a self fulfilling prophecy. Energy is a cycle. Everything you emit, returns back. This is the fundamental basis of the law of attraction. Law of attraction states that what you focus your thoughts on will manifest in your reality. When you think good thoughts, good things happen. When you think negative thoughts, everything around you appears negative. When you are in a state of anxiety and fear, your fears come true because that is where you are focusing your thoughts.
So when we emit fear, fear is returned to us. Collectively as a society, when we emit fear, fear is returned back. Fear not only lowers your energy, but the energy of those around you. Fear is contagious. Fear fulfills itself. When we call our fellow Americans stupid and ignorant, they call us stupid and ignorant back. Can you recognize the cycle?
Acting upon fear based energy creates the discord, disharmony and chaos that politicians promise to solve. It is a cycle that can not break unless we put an end to the energy we absorb, and put an end to the energy we choose to emit.
Take a moment to reflect on your beliefs and your intentions for the community, country and world in which you live. What are the causes and the effects of how you act upon your beliefs? How can you implement courage with out offending others? How can you implement courage while embracing others with different beliefs?
How does the cycle end with you? Right now, seriously, how can you end the cycle of fear and hate? How can you stop being judgmental while still maintaining your political beliefs?
Love wins but the ego will always choose fear. Silence it. The soul will always choose love. Love takes courage.
I loved the concept of the women’s marches across the world, but there was a lot of catty behavior, by celebrities and role models we look up to, and they were cheered on as they preached to people’s fears. They were cheered on as they came together to fight one enemy. They were separate from the president, and they want to be separate from the president. Based on what I explained above, how will this separation manifest? In an impeachment? Probably not. In more disharmony and division? Yes. BASIC LAW OF ATTRACTION YALL.
If you want love to win, you don’t project hate on to one man or one party. You wish him the best, envision him surrounded in white light and bless him to the point you feel you know for certain in your soul that god is acting through him. Doesn't matter if he did it first, this isn't kindergarden. You don’t make a poster making fun of his hair and you don't slut shame is wife. You don't call liberals crazy. You fuel the fire that way. You are letting fear and ego win that way.
The energy you are emitting is in your control. The energy you are emitting is your power. When emitting love, those around you catch on and also start to emit love. If you wish to raise the vibration of not only yourself, but your entire community, you emit love from every atom of your being.
Love is unbreakable. Love is strength. Love is connection. Love is power.
So in which ways can you physically put love into your local community? How can you inspire others through your positive actions in the community? I'm not talking about protesting, although that is still important, were expanding past that now. I am talking about taking time out of your day to interact with others and make a difference. I have a friend who takes disabled teenagers shopping and helps them pick out clothes, I have another friend who is taking a foster kid into her home, one of my guy friends coaches "at risk youth" baseball team and my work donates school supplies to low income schools. When you start to connect with your community, suddenly we aren't so scared of each other and each other's opinions. Suddenly "those people" are your friends. If you think your fellow Americans are stupid, go help kids learn to read in after school programs. If you disagree with Black Lives Matter then go actually hang out with black people.
It is easy to write a Facebook status rant, but your rant doesn't lead to change, and it doesn't lead to love. A photo with the kids your teaching to read will have a greater effect on your peers than your paragraph long rant. Redirect that energy into physical positive change.
Fear is winning right now. Fear is why Trump won. Fear is why the global women's marches happened following the inauguration. People are scared for the future of our country and our world, but fear will not help. Fear will only continue to create a cycle of discord and a cycle of separation. Fear inflicts more fear. If we want to change things on a macro level, it start with the individual. It starts with your vibe. It starts with your thoughts. Its starts with your perception of The United States. It starts with your perception of all the different types of Americans. It starts with your perception on how much you believe you can have an impact. Shift out of fear and into a place of courage and power. Shift out of fear and into a place of humanitarianism.
Stay woke fam. Stay living in love with everything around you. You inspire me. Our generation inspires me. Get out there with your beautiful soul.
