Fear is created when our minds start making up a story about the future.

John 14:1

Jesus said, “Do not let your hearts be troubled.”



It can be paralyzing.

Yet Jesus tells us not to worry: “Look at the birds in the sky; they do not sow or reap, they gather nothing into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are not you more important than they?” (Matthew 6:26) 

Usually fear is caused by a narrative in our minds.

The story is always that something unpleasant will happen.

If you can catch the narrative as it begins…you will suddenly be aware of what is happening.

Your mind is making up a story!

Who is observing your mind’s activity?

Your true self…that’s who!

When your mind begins to go down that rabbit hole…simply notice it…and let it go.

You can simply say to yourself, “This is a fictional narrative that I don’t need.”

End of story.

Now…ask yourself: What in this moment right now is wrong?


Accept the moment as it is.

If you don’t like the situation…then start to work on changing it.

But first and foremostbe present.

Your soul is safe in the Flow of God’s Love.

That cannot change now…or ever.

Allow this awareness to change your life!
