There are two things in life that drive most of what we do and say: fear and love. While we often confuse the two emotions as we are faced with decision-making and forming thought processes, it is imperative to understand the difference and how the events in our life show up as a result of our original intentions.

What is Love?

Love is all that we are; it’s our true essence, our natural way of being. When we are living out of love, we are heart-centered, and we think about and believe all that feels good to us, which is uplifting and inspiring. Our choices give us a sense of peace and empowerment.

What is Fear?

When we are living in fear, we are often get confused and nervous, and the decisions we make don’t feel right. We may feel anxious or have a gut-reaction to what we do, say or decide. When we are concerned about choosing the “right” or “wrong” thing, that worry is a clear indication that we are basing our decisions and building our life around fear.

Love Driven Decisions

When we make choices based on love, we are rewarded. Love keeps us in active alignment with our higher beings, the divine, our connection to ‘All There Is’. Anything chosen, spoken or done out of alignment produces positive results for us and for the highest good of all involved. Without resistance, and with clear thinking, listening to our inner guidance, we are brought to a place where we want to be almost effortlessly.

Fear Driven Decisions

On the other hand, when we make choices based on fear, then often times that we fear present themselves. By resisting our own alignment and inner guidance system, we may attract what we do not want. Consequently, we are frequently validating our thoughts. Therefore we worry and are anxious about being shown that “we were right” to fear in the first place.

Overcoming Fear with Love

Keeping in mind that our vibration is what attracts the situations in our life (people, places and things). Therefore, it’s vital to make a conscious effort to keep your thoughts positive, and your heart open. What do you wish to attract? Whatever you focus on, that is what you will receive. Being in love gives us clear-thinking and connects us to our innate wisdom. Our bodies are a barometer that is telling us where we are at during any given moment. Listen to your gut, to the wisdom of your heart and soul, and do what feels good to you.

Check in with yourself often and ask, “am I choosing this because I am afraid of the outcome or am I choosing this because it feels right to me?”

Remember, the Universe does not know the word “no,” so anything you think about is a “yes!” If you focus on what is unwanted in your life, you are thereby saying yes to it and inviting more of it in. If you instead concentrate on what feels good and right, you are saying yes to more of the good stuff. Additionally, we hear spoken words without speech. Your vibration, while silent, is still sent out into the world and solidified into form and matter (“thoughts become things,” Mike Dooley). Your thoughts, beliefs and feelings are heard and felt, rearranging your external world accordingly.

Stay focused on the good in your life, always be grateful for what is, choose out of love for yourself and what feels right, and watch your life unfold in the most magical and unpredictable way.

  1. I think what you published was actually very logical. I got it, and that’s saying something because sometimes I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed. Thanks Camille.
