Release the Grip of Fear

By Teresa Lampmann, Spiritual Director and Author

There is so much chaos and pain in the world today. We are bombarded with news of global disasters, nature’s upheavals, waring countries, and local and regional violence every hour. Such fear inducing messages and images plague our minds and unsettle our sensibilities. It calls for a conscious effort on our part to align our hearts with love and invite joy to rise from within.

This is not a tuning out of what’s happening. It is a tuning in to what’s true in our lives. Starting the day with a conscious intention to connect with the love in our heart, to be in stillness long enough to feel connected to love, to feel joy rise from our gratitude for the gifts in our life, is an act of activism!

By taking time each day to align with the love in our heart, we are releasing the grip of fear generated by the avalanche of destructive events happening globally and in our own lives. This opens channels for compassion, right action, unexpected support, and surprising solutions in our lives and the lives of those we love. This brings home a sense that all’s right in our world, and that is a significant contribution to the world at large!
