Have you ever been so excited about something only to find that your mind instantly goes into fear? Is that fear of not getting what you desire? Is it fear of actually getting what you want? Does your mind just go in circles of “what ifs” until you can’t even remember feeling excited?
I have been manifesting extra money to purchase our new home and go on a retreat. I know in my heart that it will all be just as I desire. A few mornings ago, I was cleaning the house and it hit me, “All of the money I asked for is on its way”. My heart was filled with gratitude and excitement.
Not long after the excitement hit, fear seemed to appear. My mind began asking questions. You know the ones “Are you crazy? How in the world are you going to get that kind of money that fast?” and “Nothing like this ever happens for you, how do you think this is going to be different?” “How this” and “How that”?
It’s deeper than that!
This morning, something deeper hit me. My mind is trying to explain what my heart and soul know. My mind is trying to see what I’m excited about and since there is no worldly evidence, my mind goes straight to fear.
They say that fear and excitement feel the same in our bodies. I know and feel without a doubt that I have the money I need for my desires. Is it in my bank account? Not yet. Do I have any idea where it’s coming from? I have possibilities and am following any guidance I receive but I do not have the concrete information.
A wise mentor once told me that the mind is for gathering facts and the heart is for making decisions.
What if there really isn’t fear? Think about it for a minute. Thoughts come from the mind, feelings come from the heart. Fear is a belief and a belief is just a thought that we tell ourselves over and over.
Maybe fear is just our minds trying desperately to explain what the heart feels. The heart feels what the heart feels and the mind needs facts to make sense. When there are no facts to prove the excitement we feel, could our minds just be conditioned to label it as fear?
That sounds like a vicious cycle. The more you feel the more you fear? YUCK!
I refuse to live that way. I try everyday to live more from my heart than my mind. Is it easy? Not always but it is simple.
Once of the tricks I use is to give my mind other things to think about. I am a huge fan of affirmations for a couple of reasons. One is that I know if you speak it, it becomes so. I have proven this to myself multiple times. The second reason is that when I have repeated a phrase over and over again, it gets stuck in my mind. It’s kind of like a song you can’t stop singing!!
Instead of constant mind chatter of “How”, “Why”, “You’re not good enough, smart enough…” I have trained my mind to repeat affirmations. Here’s one that I have used for so often over the years that I actually catch myself saying it (you know, like a song stuck in your head):
“I am happy, healthy, wealthy, loved, blessed, successful, grateful and prosperous”
Another process I use when I my mind seem to tell the heart what to do is to get out of my head. Literally, I stop thinking and start feeling. I have a couple of ways I do this:
- Go outside and marvel at nature
- Listen to a guided meditation
- Spend time with my animals
Lastly, have a conversation with yourself. Ask yourself how you are feeling, not what you are thinking. Are you excited? Then feel excited! It doesn’t matter why.
