Fear is an emotion many of us strive to get rid of or at the very least hide. Fear though has an important function – it warns of the unknown and the possible dangers of something being difficult or dangerous. Fear allows us to pay attention, evaluate the situation and choose the appropriate action.
If we completely eliminated fear, we would do dangerous even fatal things without properly thinking it through. Of course, some people are over-whelmed or controlled by fear; the solution however is not to eliminate fear entirely, but to bring it into proper balance.
Many people who are naturally gifted in the arena of the spirit world fear their skill and ability. Fear breeds in the unknown and a lack of understanding. We tend to fear ‘the unknown’. A lot of people ask me:- “what if I see something bad?” Nothing is bad so to speak it is an opportunity to understand something or help someone along their path in life. The truth is we all die. Some people leave earlier than others in life. Often the role for seeing something ‘bad’ is to help a person prepare or understand their challenges.
Years ago a young man came to see me. His girlfriend was desperate for some kind of hope. He had a brain tumour, a very large and aggressive one that was working its way deep into his brain tissue. He was having treatment and she was full of hope, wanting a reading to tell them both he would make it through. What pressure! As soon as he walked in his soul energy was clear. He was going to be leaving his earthly existence. My role was to talk through some of the events he still had coming in his life; including the meeting with his long lost father who had left the family during his early childhood. Some thing he believed to be impossible and unrealistic.
Six months later I had a letter. It was from a friend of his. The friend expressed how the young man had died a very happy man, in the arms of his long lost father and indeed as I had said, the event had healed a huge family wound. The friend was thanking me for the help I had given that day. They explained how the young man had come to understand something about his role in life that he previously could not grasp. He had been bitter about his illness and being so ill so young, but that day apparently, on his way home something began to make sense to him. So the question is; what I ‘saw’ all those months earlier was it really ‘bad’ or was it about understanding a fear and processing the emotion into a state of balance?
