#489 The Next Step: Know Your Fears

Jeanne Marie Ketchel
Channeled by Jan Ketchel

Dear Jeanne,
Can you offer us guidance to wrap up this week and lead us into the coming weekend?

Today, I offer first a synthesis of what you have learned over the past few days and even weeks. You are learning that you are energy beings, that you can TAP into your own energy, that you can utilize it innerly and outerly and, best of all, that you are in total control of your entire life by the choices you make, the directions you take, the options offered, and the decisions to do what you do. You may dispute this last fact, but, I dare say, if you allow your self to be honest you will acknowledge that yes, you are in complete control because only you say yes or no, only you say perhaps or maybe, and only you say now or later. Only you decide, and only you take action. (At this point in the channeling I had the clear insight that the events of our childhood, when we may feel that we did not have a choice, are the result of the choices made before we entered this lifetime, and may perhaps be our greatest challenges of this lifetime, in essence our core issues to resolve before we can evolve.)

You may wish to blame others for your place in life, for your current situation, for your dilemmas and your problems, but I contest the process of blaming others, and ask all of you to take responsibility for your journeys, for your choices, and for your own progress in life.

Keep in mind, at all times, that you are energy beings. As energy, first and foremost, you have the ability to enter many situations and make many contracts for reasons that may not be clear to your mental and physical self who may protest greatly at the imbalances in your life. But think about your energetic self as your true decision maker and allow that self to lead you to places that will challenge you to grow. Can you accept that although you may be unhappy in your life that you are, in fact, there for a very good reason that your energetic self is fully cognizant and aware of?

Are you ready to accept that your energetic self is showing you the truth of your path, pointing you in the direction you must take, in order for your life to unfold and evolve? Do you accept the next point I make, that you are fully capable of tapping into this energetic self, and finding the reason for your situation? Are you ready to do that? Are you ready to hear the truth?

The truth is spoken to you over and over again, throughout your life, and on a daily basis. But you might notice that you elect to ignore it, often, because the truth requires that you face the challenges of change and transformation that the truth reveals to you in its messages. I speak of acceptance of these truths, energetically presented and utterly known, with certainty. Yet do you choose to ignore them, while you continue your common habits and behaviors of burying your words of truth under mounds of fear?

Fear is always the greatest challenge. It appears at every step. It is the human challenge, the invader who enters your life to do battle with your energetic self. Your truth, clearly spoken, and revealed by your very innocent and honest spirit self, is then confronted with the voice of fear saying, well, what if? How can I possibly do that? I can’t do that! When, in fact, you can decide to go with your spirit, confronting your fear, seeing it as just another energy, a negative energy that teaches you as much about your self as your spirit energy does.

So, you see, these are your two complications, your competitors, in a standoff for much of your life, your spirit energy vs. your fear energy. Now, I also contend that you are in total control of both of these aspects of life’s battles. Yes, you are!

In order to access true control, you must be willing to acquiesce the fear control that has dominated thus far. Fear keeps you safe. Fear keeps you alert. Fear protects you, but it also stifles you, hides you, and keeps you stuck in a place of reluctance to listen to the truth spoken by your energetic self.

It is wise to turn the tables on your fear, but you must first know what your fears are, and that is the next lesson I wish to advise you upon, know your fears. This is the next step to take and the next part of the process of evolving. If you do not know who or what your energy is, how can you wage a good battle? Your fears reveal themselves quite often, but they are often as deeply hidden beneath your daily patter as your truths are, residing side by side with your energetic truths, beneath the oblivion of control that has thus far been your mode of operation.

I challenge you to make a list of your fears, from the greatest to the tiniest. And then I ask that beside that list you make another list of your energetic truths. You might find that your fears are many and your truths few, but you might also notice that your truths are grounding, mature, noble, and worthy of your attention, while your fears may be old and tired, worn out, and energetically depleted or sorely bruised from years of use and abuse. You might find that your truths do shine more brightly than your fears, yet have you still not accepted them as your guiding truths, but for fear of what?

As I mentioned the other day, your purpose and meaning in life is to live from your spirit self, allowing this aspect of self to override all fears, allowing it to challenge you and bring you forth into greater acknowledgment of and access to your self as a being comprised of energy, ready and willing to embrace the true self.

So, ponder who your fear-driven self really is. And ponder also who your innocent spirit self is. Allow them to face each other. Look honestly at these two halves of the self and begin a systematic dismantling of the fear aspects of self in favor of the spirit self emerging and participating in your life. Good Luck!
