When Courage Roars (Or Meows)

Positive emotions originate from love while negative emotions stem from fear. Fear is a powerful emotion because it’s genetically linked to the survival instinct. Our bodies become overburdened by fear’s unnecessary stress on our systems. The stress hormone cortisol becomes elevated, we are unable to relax, and our immune system becomes weakened.

Emotional energy attracts like, as in, fear will attract fear. While we do attract who we are, that can also be used to attract positive. Courage attracts courage. To generate the flow of positive energy you must first initiate positive energy. Send out positive signals in order for those in the same or similar frequencies to gravitate towards your positive emotional energy.

Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we have learned here. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and the acceptance of love back into our hearts.  ~Marianne Williamson

Last week I talked about how frustration can teach you patience, the same can be applied to fear teaching you courage. Fear places you in a position to test your bravery. Fear places your unresolved emotional baggage in the forefront, brings it to your attention, which then allows you the space to confront and work though these emotions. Without the fear you might not have been mindful of the work to be done or simply avoided it. Without the fear you wouldn’t have the opportunity to courageously explore your fears. Courage lessens the hold that fear has on you.

No matter how strong of a hold fear may have on you; love is the greatest force of all.
