Today Belongs To Love, Let Me Not Fear

Melissa’s Life Coaching Tip Of The Day:
I have been studying a “Course In Miracles” for a few years and love what I have learned from this metaphysical text and workbook. I’m also in a study group with other coaches that teach this as part of our coaching curriculum. In the “Course” it is said that only love truly exists and fear is just an illusion the mind created by our ego. This can subside over time when you have the tools to deal with the ego, but it can never completely go away. Feel the fear, acknowledge it, and think of love instead. Replace it with a positive affirmation, like “I choose love over fear today.” Guaranteed by the time you finish this, the fear will have subsided and all is well. Love is the only thing that is real and fear is just your small unimportant ego talking.


“The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself.” Franklin D. Roosevelt

20131223-015509.jpgFear is a funny thing. It can give us insite not to cross the road when there is oncoming traffic but it also can stop us in our tracks from following our dreams and passions. We live in a fear based world with news and media always in our midst and declaring fear on so many topics. It’s hard not to be worried at times to leave the house in fear that something bad might happen,never mind if we do something new or different. The biggest creator of our own fear based thoughts is our very own Ego! It will stop oneself from almost anything we might be ready to accomplish. The Ego has a way to stop you from taking the plunge into a new endeavor. That voice suddenly inside you that says…..Who do you think you are anyway? You could never do that! Just because so and so can do that surely doesn’t mean you can too! Sound familiar?

These thoughts are just your Ego playing tricks on you. Pay attention to your hopes and dreams and make them a reality.  Take the time to write them in a journal and read them daily. Start goal setting with an achievement date. Don’t worry how you will get there, just know you will!  This is the first step to get over your fear based thoughts.
