Ego & Fear
Over the past 2 weeks I’ve blogged about how a lack of compassion, living life unconsciously and over-reacting are all ways that keep us from our heart space. It truly is our choice if we desire to live on autopilot or take over the controls and really LIVE our life. This week, I would like to finish this series with two more major obstacles – they are the ego and fear.
1. Our ego – the master of separation. The ego's job is to help us survive, but we tend to give way more over to it than that. The ego should be in the passenger seat, yet most of us let it drive. If you're feeling angry, sad, judgmental - those feelings are the realm of the ego. Feeling compassion, love, joy - those are the feelings of the heart. The heart invites you to remember your divinity and the oneness we all are. The ego will fight you tooth and nail on this. What it comes down to is deciding whether you want to be from the ego or your heart. The ego loves the driver's seat, but is meant to accompany you on your life's journey as a passenger. If you wish to take the wheel back, you must connect with your heart. Meditation and daily gratitude exercises are a great way to come back to the heart space.
2. Fear – all negative emotions boil down to fear. If I were to ask what’s the opposite of cold, you would say hot. What’s the opposite of happy? Sad. What’s the opposite of day? Night. What’s the opposite of love? You will probably answer – hate, but it’s not. Fear is the opposite of Love. You can boil your hate down to fear. Don’t believe me? Keep asking yourself why you hate someone or something and continue that line of questioning until you’ve hit the root reason – it will be some kind of fear. The duality of hate and love are a conditional game. You either love or hate something due to certain conditions, experiences and beliefs. Unconditional love is quite different - it's love without any conditions whatsoever. Our Source, Creator, God (whatever name you use) is unconditional LOVE. We come from Love, we are this Love. Love is what connects all of us. That’s the energy running through us. That is, until we cover it up with other energies: despair, fear, unworthiness, frustration, anger, etc. Fear keeps you from your heart, love brings you back in.
Connecting to your heart takes effort, but it is well-worth it. By connecting to your heart, you begin to recognize the real you and your life takes on a whole other level of meaning. Take the wheel back from the ego and its use of fear by being more aware and conscious of your thoughts and feelings, by pausing before you react and then choosing how to respond from your heart space.
Love, Adrienne :)

Fear is the root of all discomfort or negativity-I truly believe that. Look at our society-fear is the reason people are lashing out at one another and at groups. It's easier to blame others for our fears as that would mean we'd have to confront them. I pray fear will not win.

I think that's part of what life's about - confronting our fears. Learning from our fears and not allowing them to control our lives. You're right Patty, we do tend to project our fears. It would be awesome if we could get people to recognize their fear and work with it, but the best we can do is work on ourselves and make sure fear does not win in our own life. Huge hugs!

So I am a little behind in my reading, but I am so very thankful for your writing! As I explained in a recent email to you, I am a beginner, desperate to connect to my true self. I yearn to give the world and my family/friends the best version of me possible. You have made me more aware and given me tools to begin discovering my own true connection to my heart & soul. I feel so incredibly grateful for the simple tools that have made such a difference! I am a work in progress, but learning to enjoy the journey!! I so enjoy reading what you share. What a blessing you are to all. I am sending you love & hugs!!!!!

Thank you Kim :) We are all a work in progress - we just have to remember to love ourselves through it. We're all on this journey together. Much love and hugs back to you!
