Every choice we make creates an experience....take note. When we choose from fear, we become exhausted. When we choose from love, we experience joy, peace and 'flow'. We are free agents always... we decide how to play the game.
Pat Bley

Life IS a game. It is your choice how you play it, just as mentioned in this quote. If you are choosing to do anything from fear there will be problems... this is not your true self. Fear is the manifestation of something from your indoctrination as a child,  or something you have heard/read.  You have taken this information on as truth and it is distressing when it is challenged. It causes worry, stress and exhaustion. Fear is a choice.

So, why choose fear? Is it really a choice? Yes, it is. There is always a choice, and you are in control of your reaction. It may not feel as though you are actually given a choice because the reaction is so swift. It's a knee-jerk reaction. The feeling is 'there' and you are reacting, usually before you have had a chance to think about it.  

So, STOP, right where you are, right in the middle of your reaction, and acknowledge the feeling. Once you allow the feeling, and face it for what it is, you have something to work with. Now you can decide if this reaction, this fear, is valid at this point in your life. You are no longer a child, and yet your reaction, most likely, is something you have carried since that time. If you can figure out what you are dealing with, chances are you can  switch your reactions, one at a time. Releasing your fears will make it so much easier to navigate your world. 

Recognize and Release.

And now, next time, you can choose joy, peace and flow. You are a free agent.
