7 Steps to Releasing the Fear of Not Knowing
Illusion & Denial
Third Eye Chakra
One of our greatest stresses in life comes from feeling powerless and stuck as we feel the stress of not knowing what to do or what will happen in a given situation. It can make us feel desperate as try to fathom the right course of action.
The saboteurs of the Third Eye Chakra are Illusion and Denial. Both of these can seem to be the comfort blanket we need to protect us from:
- fear of the unknown
- fear of facing the truth
- fear of not knowing what to do
- fear of not knowing what will happen
We so often create conflict for ourselves when we stand in opposition to the truth of what is happening to us and around us. However, it takes far more energy to live in illusion and denial than it does to live in truth. Truth flows, the saboteurs block us from the truth.
Are You Denying Your Life?
I am sure that you have heard the phrase “Wherever you go, there you are”, you cannot escape yourself no matter how hard you may try. If you have created a mental habit of illusion and denial, you are never truly in the Now. The Now is all there really is, so therefore you are losing the tremendous quality of true living. Most of our fears are generated by the overactive mind as it projects our fears into the future.
How often do you wish “I don’t want to be where I am?” or “Why is this happening to me?” – this is a denial of your life.
Live in Trust & Truth
When we constantly have to fight, to turn away, to close our eyes or to distract ourselves, we are draining our energy. We rob ourselves of the gift of curiosity and the discovery of possibilities and opportunities. To live in this way is to have a constant state of inner war.
At the Third Eye Chakra (Ajna) we remove the veil of illusion and denial and live in truth. We are supported by our intuition and guidance of our Higher Self and are therefore empowered to live in trust.
Surrender and Create Space
When we embrace our uncertainty we open a space for stillness and the waiting for clarity. When we no longer search for the knowing, the knowing comes to us. It is in this space that we find tremendous insight and breakthrough to the learning that is meant for us. This space can only be experienced through surrender to not knowing. It allows the unfolding of Universal Power through the shifting of people, events, places to provide the clarity and direction we search for. For all the thoughts, words and actions you take, the Universe is moving and adjusting, creating the changes we need for our learning and our growth.
How about saying “Yes” to your Universe? To trust that whatever comes into your path, it is sent for your learning and growth and most importantly that you will discover a greater strength of Spirit inside you than you could ever believe. Whatever is happening in your life or whatever arises in the future, you will handle it because you are not alone. The Universe is seeking to bring all you desire to you – it just might arrive in a different manner than you would expect!
Can you imagine what life would be like if you stopped struggling and surrendered to Trust and Not Knowing?
7 Steps to Releasing the Fear of Not Knowing
‘Not knowing’ is an entirely different state than illusion and denial. ‘Not knowing’ is living in trust and acceptance of What Is and the guidance of the Universe through your instincts. Illusion and denial, is ignoring What Is and therefore cutting yourself off from any intuitive guidance.
- Embrace Not Knowing
This will release the energy of confusion, it is only then that clarity can be revealed.
- Ask: What Can I Learn From This?
Trust that all events in your life arrive for a reason. Search for the lesson and you will find the answer.
- Open Your Mind
When we fill our heads with worry, anxiety and desperation we have no space for openness to the intuitive messages from within that are there to guide and help us. Surrender and let the flow of life take its course. It is only by being in the moment, with an openness to your intuition, that you will find peace and stop the suffering you experience through your struggle.
- Live in a State of Curiosity
Let yourself wonder what may be. Observe your life as a journey with ups and downs, twists and turns. Ride the currents and live with flow. When you close your mind you put a halt to all learning and growth that is meant for you. You become stuck in the muddy waters of despair, the more you panic, the muddier the water becomes.
- Say Yes to Your Universe
Accept your life in this present moment just as it is. It does not mean that you do not take action by becoming more creative and making changes. It means that you live with more trust, faith and hope that the Universe is always moving you towards your Highest Good.
- Be Aware of Synchronicity
Be mindful of the signs, symbols and serendipity that arrive in your path. The Universe is always guiding you and letting you know that you are not alone. You will only notice when you are open to see.
- Co-Create with The Universe
We may create our own plans of how things should be, however, we are co-creating with the Universe and we must be prepared to be flexible and adaptable rather than rigid and controlling.
Imagine reaching the end of your life and looking back and seeing that all those things that you were afraid of never happened. All those things that you thought would go wrong, turned out well. That all your plans actually turned out differently and were greater than you could have imagined. There is one thing that you would wish in that moment. You would wish that you had enjoyed the ride, trusted your journey and said yes to your life! Surrender to not knowing.
