Casting Out Fear

A Biblical phrase that finds perfect alignment with the needs of those seeking to activate their joy.

Let’s set the record straight… on fear. We need to show it the door.

The Tragedy That is Fear

Fear within, experienced by many who are unable to activate their joy, is not an anomaly. Yet, it’s almost treated as such; fear is so personal. Not being intuitive and addressing our inner worries fully and thoroughly can have major consequences on you and your surrounding environment.

What Happens With Fear

When you are held under fear, you may try your best to suppress it and keep from validating it, recognizing it, and allowing it to pass through; OR you might try to over control it, then holding on for dear life, needing to control that and everything else around you.

Fear of heights and falling? Or an utterly amazing God-made view for your enjoyment?

Both scenarios contribute to an ineffective work and personal life. Attempts that are anything but the acknowledgment and then subsequent release of fear keep you from being a productive member of society. But most importantly, it will lead you in the opposite direction from your joy!

Understanding Fear

As a woman with a chronic, autoimmune illness, I truly understand fear. From the fear of missing out on an important deadline or event to the fear of an impending early death, I have let my mindset get diverted towards my fear and things I can’t control instead of towards life and joy. This type of fear, though, as traumatic and flagrant as it may be, aligns well with anyone else’s fear. Yes, we are all unique and have different fears, but no matter who fears in what way, our fears are valid. Additionally, your fear of failure may hit you in just the same way as a fear of dying soon from a debilitating illness.

A favorite verse of mine. Remember that giving love, to yourself and others, is a key way to activate your joy… and cast out fear!

It becomes a deliberate path to the wicked witch’s house; away from the land of Oz and limitless possibilities. Accessing the tools to fully process your fear will lead you to abolish it enough [if not fully] to activate your joy, and spend time wrestling with issues that stand to give you the inner peace in life and success and productivity in business that you deserve.

What to Remember

It is important, when fear arises, to ponder this: is my fear rational? is my fear imminent if it is rational? And is my fear subjecting me to the sadness and guilt and/or blame that drags me away from activating my joy? Find a way to cast out fear, for it is indefinitely going to stomp out a wonderful life well lived. Try love, try forgiveness (of self and others and circumstances), try imperfect ways of reflecting and meditating and practicing self-care. All aside from wallowing in a sadness that makes fear much more prominent

How About You?

Has fear overtaken you at all? Is it now? Take a few deep breaths and ponder the questions above. Ask yourself if it’s okay… give yourself permission to activate your joy and actually live now, regardless of what the future brings.

I love hearing from you, whether it be your comments or emails. Let me know what you think of this message, or any message so far. I hope this is a timely message for you all, my readers.

Blessings,

Kristen G. ♥️

  1. I really needed this message on fear today! Going thru heart break right now and fear of loss. Including fear of losing my vision – but I know it’ll be ok in the end. The heart break still hurts weeks later. So thank u for this about fear. I had fear that this pain of love loss will never end. And loneliness, Depression and anxiety ensued. All during Covid – uh!

    Love you, Maria
