LOVE vs. FEAR

LOVE vs. FEAR

Understanding love is a process. Often it means transcending self-imposed limitations and past experience imprints before we can truly expand in full heart. It entails a personal and shared journey filled with tremendous personal growth, extraordinary challenges, bounty and absolute unique experiences of life and self.

Navigating through my own spiritual journey, I have grasped the duality between love and fear. In every moment we are either in a state of love or in a state of fear. Where there is fear there is no room for love. Where there is love there is no room for fear. My own indentation of fear was prominently embedded deep in my subconscious from very early childhood. Fear constantly paralysed my expansion as I adapted habitual emotional responses in situations and relationships that disarmed me. Even though I have often relied on the ‘fight or flight’ emotional instinct of my brain for survival, higher reason and mortality can only be actualized in a state of love. Shifting from fear, to living a life of love has been the most incredible transformation in my own personal journey.

Exterminating my natural fear inclinations was an expedition through many, many layers, requesting a changed mindset, patience and dedication.

  • Practicing the art of mediation has been my most powerful vehicle. Regular mindfulness practice, has allowed my mind and nervous system repose in profound silence, clearing blocks and dissolving stubborn obstacles.
  • Past Life Regression Therapy via Brian Weiss workshops enlightened my spiritual growth staggeringly. Experiencing past life incarnations was a gateway to understanding my current life, to healing my current afflictions and renewing my ongoing evolvement.
  • Attending a Doreen Virtue, Angel Intuitive workshop. During a group ‘healing addiction’ mediation, not sugar, nor caffeine, but fear raised its ugly head! The awareness the meditation delivered was phenomenal.
  • A profound Quantum Consciousness experience with my spiritual teacher, Melissa Haymes, allowed me to tap into my own personal wisdom, layers of consciousness and cosmic consciousness. I received instant insight. I physically wretched my black core of ‘fear’ at the end of the session, liberating me metaphysically and emotionally.

Letting go of my addiction to fear has been a personal battle. A liken it to a child relinquishing their ‘blankie’. The touch of it was an innate comfort that had become habitual. Surrendering fear and reclaiming more personal power has allowed me back home to myself. To my true, authentic being. To my divine nature of pure love.

Love is state of being. Love is for others, love is for you, love is for our children, love is for our neighbours, love is for nature, and love is for all. We are all connected. And then when we encounter a cautionary situation or person, we can refrain and remain in our state of love. From this loving place within, we can choose how to respond or not respond.

I read in a Wayne Dyer book, which resonated deeply with me, “Fear knocked on the door; love answered, and no one was there”.

Live from a place of PURE LOVE.

Love and light and blessings,

Everything Happens For A Reason

Everything Happens For A Reason

My wise Grandmother, who in the eye of any meaningful situation quotes “everything happens for a reason”, has been a tremendous teacher in my life. She has a calm resolve in accepting any struggle for reasons beyond her control. Like my grandmother, I believe that the magic, the tremendous people and the struggles along my own passage have been orchestrated by a kind of master plan from a greater universal force.

I conclude that people come into our life not by any coincidence, but to serve a purpose on our life’s journey. Synchronicity delivers this friend, spouse, relative, teacher, or neighbour to demonstrate compelling life lessons. To guide us, mentor or instigate the writings of our unwritten story. These gifts do not define us, they serve us, they are there for the reason we need them to be.

Like the people that show up in our journey at the precise needed moment, incidents happen in our life with divine intention, and all for a reason. Our highs and daunting lows and the bendy twists and turns, are all part of our life story. The love, loss, ill health, milestones, tragedy and great moments, are perfectly paved into our road to test the absolute limits of our soul and its evolvement.

Once we live from this perspective of greater awareness, the road we are travelling, feels less retching. Knowing and anticipating the potential lessons that comes from each person or situation that presents, allows a kind of acceptance of where we are in our personal memoir. It diminishes our struggle, our anguish and the resistance we harbour. The key is to simply ‘trust the process’ and know it is for a greater ‘reason’.

This beautiful poem by an unknown author captures the essence of people coming into our life’s story for a reason.

With love,

People come into your path for a reason a season or a lifetime.

When you know which one it is, you will know what to do with that person.

When someone is in your life for a REASON it is usually to meet a need you have expressed.

They have come to assist you through a difficulty…

To provide you with guidance and support…

To aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually…

They may seem like they are a godsend, and they are.

They are there for the reason you need them to be.

Then without any wrongdoing on your part, or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end.

Sometimes they die…

Sometimes they walk away…

Sometimes they act up and force you to take a stand….

What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled…

Their work is done.

The prayer you sent up has now been answered and now it is time to move on.

Some people come into your life for a SEASON.

Because your turn has come to share, grow or learn.

They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh.

They may teach you something you have never done.

They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy.

Believe it, it is real. But only for a season.

LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons.

Things you must build upon to have a solid emotional foundation.

Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person, and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.

It is said that love is blind, but friendship is clairvoyant.

Thank you for being a part of my life…

Whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime

How To Help Your Child Find Their True Purpose

How To Help Your Child Find Their True Purpose

The word dharma resonates deeply within me. Put most simply, our dharma is our true-life purpose. Our calling. I believe we all possess a unique gift that we are intended to share in this physical lifetime.

I remember the recently passed, Wayne Dyer, talking about one’s dharma and it struck a personal chord. He explained a bumblebee knows what it has been born to do. “To bumble and do what bees do” and that a tree knows its life purpose, as does the beautiful rose. He went on to say, that as humans we tend to interfere and divert from our natural purpose. I have witnessed this in my own life, we can cross paths with our intended journey, we can claim it, we can flirt with it and sometimes sadly we can miss our calling all together.

I remind my own children regularly, that they each have a special talent to share with our world. It is crucial message, setting a foundation to their individual life journeys.  Quite consciously, I remove pressure and expectations from their respective achievements and performances. I encourage that they try a myriad of varying opportunities, to experiment and see what resonates with their true spirit. The special “thing” that each child is intended to share, that ‘magic’, that ‘unique gift’, I trust will naturally weave its way into their existence. We must as parents be careful in our coaching and guidance. Our own expectations, even our own unfulfilled dreams or desires can impose limitations or restrictions upon our child’s authentic purpose.

My eldest daughter recently showed me a maths test result. I praised her achievement and talked through the particular unit of maths. She expressed her concern that two of her friends received a higher score and that maths was a subject she really has to apply herself to. The look of concern on her little face worried me. I asked her why she was so distracted over her friends’ scores. She explained that with the commitment she had invested into this subject, she had expected she would have achieved similar results. I asked her;

“Do you enjoy maths?”

“Not really, the formulas and equations are just so difficult. It doesn’t feel easy. I wish I didn’t have to study maths.”

“How can we help you?”

“I don’t need help. I’m passing. I’m not really worried, just frustrated Mum.”

“What else are you studying that feels more natural to you?’ I asked.

“That’s easy”, she replied. “There’s a heap. I love writing, persuasive text is my favourite. Science thrills me. There’s something so fascinating about the Chinese language. My horse riding lessons never seem long enough. And sprinting, my legs have a mind of their own, and I run fast.”

I wrapped my arms around her and reassured her that these pursuits were her natural tendencies. “You don’t have to be good at everything. Accept your maths results. Don’t compare yourself to others. You need to find what makes YOU, YOU.”

My new book Little Angels bestows many affirmations for children, that I hope will help reduce fear and anxiety in our beautiful, individual blossoms. Check out my website for stockists: www.sarahfiggins.com
