From the perspective of the Living in Alignment Model, living in a “fear-based reality” is by and large the result of having a lack of or no conscious connection with the spiritual or energetic aspect of who you are.
This is to say that the more disconnected you are with Source energy (a name I use to refer to the power that is greater than the resources of your mind) the more likely you will live in a fear-based reality.
When a person is living in a fear-based reality, they’re in “survival mode” to a lesser or greater extent. For many people living in fear has been a way of life for so long that it is their normal way of being with themselves and in the world.
A fear-based reality is born from limiting or faulty beliefs and perceptions such as:
For many people who are on a spiritual path, fear becomes their reality when their mind isn’t accepting the circumstances which are happening (i.e., an event, experience). For others fear manifest when they’re not trusting in a process and their minds have concluded that Source energy isn’t working on their behalf, not working fast enough, is nowhere to be found or that they’ve been abandoned by Source energy.
It’s not that Source energy has gone missing in action, on the contrary Source energy is always working behind the scenes in your life. It’s that a limiting or faulty belief, perception, and or expectation has been triggered when danger or uncertainty has arisen. When this happens doubt, confusion, second guessing, resistance, and other guises of fear arises.
Too often when fear is present people contract energetically rather than being receptive to what is happening in their lives. At these times you’ll become anxious.
Let the fear be your cue to come closer to Source energy.
You do this by letting go and letting Source energy be in the driver’s seat. What is required at times of uncertainty is the willingness to trust and surrender to Source energy. Trusting and Surrendering are the means by which you will successfully keep your mind from getting caught up in fear and be able to move forward. In this context, trusting is about yielding to Source energy and surrendering is about merging with Source energy.
In practice, you yield by listening to your intuition (the voice of Source energy within) and you merge by following the guidance/promptings that Source energy is continuously offering about all aspects of your life.
Having a conscious connection with Source energy is much more than having a belief that this vital energy exist, it is a knowing that it does. And this knowing is based on you having direct/ subjective experiences of the workings of Source energy in your daily life.
Your mind will defer to Source energy more and more as it gains sufficient proof that Source energy is real and that Living in Alignment is a viable and more desirable alternative to being primarily externally resourced. With increased awareness your human self will come to acknowledge that Living in Alignment is practical, effective, and reliable. Also, that Source energy is more qualified, skilled, and experienced in being in the driver’s seat than your mind/ ego.
Living in a fear-based reality is optional, it is the result of your human self not Living in Alignment (i.e., partnership) with your spiritual self. Your natural state and birthright is to be Living in Alignment with Source energy.
The fantastic news is that when you decide to listen to and follow the guidance and directives from your Soul ( the unique reflection of Source energy inside of you) it will begin to make an indelible impression upon your mind.
Fear in all of its manifestations will be replaced with a knowing that Source energy is a benevolent, intelligent, interactive, ingenious, creative, omnipresent, unifying, self-generating energy system.
You will also come to realize that you’re not alone in the universe, that you can live in partnership with Source energy, that your presence is of significance, that your life has meaning and purpose, and that “all is well” in the larger scheme of life.
