FEAR is: False Evidence Appearing Real. In others words, most fear we experience is self manufactured – yep, we make it up! Think about it, most things you fear are things you imagine will or may happen to you in the future. This is your perception, but has little to do with the reality of the present moment. Your imagination is excellent at painting a very colorful, energy-catching picture of the fearful outcome you perceive. So vivid is this portrait that the fear appears real in your mind. Much of what you fear is based on something that happened in the past, to you or someone else, and you project the same fearful event happening to you in the future. Fear shows up in your life as worry, anxiety, restlessness, stress and tension.

Living in fear is like living your life in a dark, comfortable cave fearing the light outside. When you get too close to the edge, you project your fears into the light to keep you safe within the cave. The cave becomes your small circle of comfort, known as your “personal comfort zone.” You know your existence to be what happens within this zone. As you move through your days, you do so with comfort and ease because you find trust and security in your cave. This “comfort zone” does not include all the things we fear. We leave those out of the equation, although the memories linger in our minds. Sometimes life extends an invitation to experience something new; to step outside your comfort zone. Or, maybe life in the cave becomes so boring you open the trunk of memories and try on a few to generate a little fear and wake you up a bit. Here is silly question: “Why do you do this?!” Because of fear! Even though it’s uncomfortable, it is still within in your “comfort zone,” because fear is all you’ve known.

Teddy Roosevelt said,”The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” How can you begin to experience what life outside the cave is like? How can you stop your fear in order to step outside the comfort zone for a broader, richer life experience? How can you move from the darkness of the cave into the light of Truth? The answer is faith.

FAITH means: Find An Infinite Truth Here. When you have faith, you are basing your life on Universal Principles or Infinite Truths, not on the illusions of your perceptions. What are the higher principles in which you believe? What is it above all else you know to be True? You may believe you are always connected to a Higher Power, or to God. You may believe an “inner wisdom” will direct you. You may believe all your prayers are heard and answered by this higher power. You may believe you are always being looked after and cared for. You may believe LOVE is greater than all your fears. Transforming your fears into faith is the key to living an abundantly rich, full and satisfying life. Faith means living your life with purpose.

Transforming your fear into faith requires you to:

Stop: When you begin to feel fear
Acknowledge: Your fear is making you feel alone, isolated and separated from love.
Remember Fear is: False Evidence Appearing Real
Tap into your faith: Find an infinite truth here.
Remember what you KNOW to be True

Allow your life’s Infinite Truths transform your fear into faith.
Step outside the comfort zone of your cave and walk into the light of Truth.
