“Things have shifted exponentially on the planet since 9/11, and we can choose to see this from a spiritual perspective. There is nothing secure or safe. There are no easy answers, no obvious villains to eliminate so all will be well again. It is impossible for anything outside of ourselves to grant us complete and guaranteed protection. Even the most vigilant mother cannot stay glued to her child 24 hours a day for her whole life to make sure they are safe. We just can’t mentally come up with enough outer plans to make sure all we love is protected from harm. This shift since 9/11 is asking us to look internally to our ever-present spiritual self to meet our needs for Love, safety, peace, and assurance.” – Excerpt from Susann Taylor Shier’s book, Soul Mastery
If you are feeling scared or insecure, read the following part of her words again and again until you get it “….This shift since 9/11 is asking us to look internally to our ever-present spiritual self to meet our needs for Love, safety, peace, and assurance.” – Susann Taylor Shier, Soul Mastery
There will always be times when we feel scared, unsafe and insecure. Security and safety live within us. Trusting feelings comes from within us. If for any reasons you don’t find yourself in a spiritually strong place or have enough spiritual strength to tap into from within, remember: we all have spiritual resources that we lean on, learn from and practice connecting to so that we can grow spiritually stronger.
In moments when we feel scared, insecure and unsafe in any part of our lives, just know that we can choose to move away from those thoughts and feelings to something better. “Something better” thoughts are loving and trusting. We can find a loving thought somewhere even when we feel scared. It may take some practice shots, but if we keep attempting to find that one loving thought we can make a leap. Practice having more of the loving, trusting, allowing thoughts, even while in those insecure moments. This is what shifts our mind set. It’s the qualities of our hearts, the frequency and expansion of our heart spaces.
We can begin to relax. We can begin to relax into our “ever present spiritual nature”, what I consider to be our own inner oasis.
