Fear | Evolving To Become Fearless

Fear | Evolving To Become Fearless

Fear – What is it? How does it arise? Why is it so deeply ingrained in humanity? are some of the many questions about fear that I always found myself asking. Sometimes I would find myself drowning completely in fear, while other times I would be fearlessly sailing the seas. It may seem very assumptive to say this, but I strongly believe that of the 7.6 billion people who inhabit this planet pretty much everyone lives in fear.

Fear is something that will for sure exist to varying degrees in all our lives, it is where our quest for survival originates from. However to what degree fear plays in your life only you can decide. Either it can control you or you can control it, the choice has and always will be yours. Now for me it all came to a sudden realisation that day when everything changed, when I woke up and questioned Who Am I? I realised for the first time that fear had been running my script, fear had been running my life. For the first time ever I felt a sudden sense of freedom a feeling of release. It was as if I had been reborn as if suddenly a weight had been lifted off my shoulders. I had for the first time experienced what fearlessness felt like. But I knew that this feeling of euphoria needed close management and understanding. If I was planning on keeping it I had to first figure out why I had been fearful for all these years. What had created this fear? and why had it had such a powerful hold over me? What I will share with you is my findings, findings which arose after moments in deep contemplation and self awareness. I hope that what I am about to reveal will too some degree go towards helping people overcome many of there own fears and in turn change there lives for the better.

To understand fear you must first learn to understand why it exists. Fear is one of the two principles found in the physiological mechanism of fight or flight. It is a hard wired characteristic built into all of us to create inertia, the inertia to keep moving. But why is fear such a dominating factor in all that we do.. well let me explain this to you now.

Let me take you back to that first day when you entered this worldly plane. For it is from that day forth that has determined your relationship with fear. You see when you are born you effectively have no concept of attachments, emotions, desires or fear. Your instinctive objective at that point in time is purely to find comfort, safety, nourishment and rest. You effectively have entered this new life as a blank CD with no map to guide you. In essence you are the closest to source and completely free. However as time passes on this CD starts to slowly fill up, your senses of sight, sound, touch, taste and smell being the filters through which you learn to see the world. All these senses are doing are allowing you to navigate the world safely, thus reinforcing the survival mechanism. What is key to understand here is that what you filter, you subconsciously store and what you store in time can become your reality. So for example lets say that you have been brought up in a setting where people around you have always been fearful, fearful of there safety, there status and security even fearful of death itself. This is what your daily exposure becomes and it is this exposure that starts to fill up your CD. The more exposure you have the stronger the characteristics become, until one day they become part of who you are.

Now as a child you have no control yourself to decide what to filter in and what to filter out. Your mind is like a sponge and you will absorb everything you are exposed to. So the key point to understand here is to try and minimise the exposure of fear you give to a young mind. The sources of exposure are many; but I will let you ponder over the varying types that exist. Fear is a characteristic that has been over developed, to a point greater than what is needed for survival. I am sure I do not have to spell it out to you as to why this has been done, but I will leave you with this one thought “In love you set free, in fear you …..”

Remember this one truth and that truth is that there is nothing in life that you need to fear, everything you have ever wanted lies on the other side of fear. In order to reach there you must first become fearless. To be fearful means you are using the stored information to add value to the present moment. In doing so you are operating from the past, fearing but not living. Only you can understand your fears and only you can learn to overcome them. You must come to understand that fear will exist throughout your whole life, but you will need to decide whether the decisions you make in this moment are made in either love or in fear. That choice I will leave upto you….

Life Is A Journey Not A Destination

Life Is A Journey Not A Destination | Secret Mirrors

We walk the same, we talk the same, we want the same… The journey maybe different but the destination is the same.A seed does not know what it will become until it flowers. Once it has flowered only then will it show its true beauty. Once fully in blossom it has no care for its surroundings other than to acknowledge and merge into oneness.

This is what we as humanity need to understand and come to #realisation of. We are all unique searching for the truth. We each have a secret to share with each other… Only when we realise our true essence can we tap into our secret and share it with the world..

@secretmirrors teaching you that individuality is the source for creativity.

Root Chakra – Muladhara Chakra Pt 2

Root Chakra - Muladhara Chakra Pt 2

Root Chakra was now open, its contents spewing like a volcanic eruption directionless and intense. The Root Chakra seemed like a little shop of horrors, one by one bringing into my consciousness things I did not want to see. It appeared now that the contents of the Root Chakra had been unconsciously suppressed, each faculty layering up over time, strengthening its hold and thus making me its victim. Unknowingly I had been controlled like a puppet for years, dangled by a power so strong that if I had not awoken it could have easily controlled me for the rest of my life.

The Root Chakra is the boundary between animal consciousness and human consciousness. It is from this chakra that you see the transition from a sleep like state to an awakened state. Luckily for me I had been awoken by something and it was my time to embrace what I was being shown. One by one the qualities that I guess I had come to accept as normal were being shown to me in a very different light. I was being made to acknowledge them, delve deeper into there source, there triggers, there reasons and I was having to confront them head on. The physical symptoms of confronting a lot of the qualities that I had unconsciously come to rely on where exposing me to my pain-body. There were times of physical distress, nausea, headaches all of which were being caused by my mind bringing forth these traits. The traits for now I will keep personal to my own experience; but I will share with you the two sides. Some will be more stronger and some weaker. The key is to become conscious of them find balance in yourself and then to ensure they do not take you for a ride.

The traits are as follows each showing the dualistic principles that exist, one being the positive and the other negative.

Sins & Virtues | Secret Mirrors

As you can see these are the so called sins and virtues so often spoken of. They form the basis for a large majority of problems we see in society today. It is only when each one is brought to the light of awareness, understood, controlled and dissolved with consciousness can then the bursting Root chakra be brought back to rest. Control of each one will take time and patience and that is exactly what I was slowly learning to do. The key here was to know how to control each one, understand it before it tried to arise and banish it before it stuck its claws into me. It seems easy now when I look back especially as now I am the master of my mind; but while in the thick of it, it was a completely different story. Courage is what kept me going, I wanted to be free of how I was feeling and my guide was helping me keep faith. The journey was progressing; but somehow I knew there was going to be a light at the end of all this and that is what I kept myself fixated on.

Life Is Already Perfect

Life Is Already Perfect | Secret Mirrors

Perfect is what you make of it, it is merely just perception. If you start believing that your life is perfect, it will be. If you start to believe you are rich, happy, joyful, content you will be.

The key to this perfect life… Is that you don’t know anything else. How your life is playing out is exactly how your life is meant to be playing out. Its a perfect masterpiece, make it through and you will be up for a grammy. This perfection is only going to be true if you are living your life and not someone else’s. 95% of the world is in role play… Take a moment to think about it… Actually don’t… Thinking is what got you into the mess of role playing in the first place… Your life begins in the present moment. Stop thinking, thinking is recycling of past to add value to the future. Live each moment fully, it’s the only moment you will ever know, it is where that perfect and happy ever after comes from.

@secretmirrors showing the world that we can all have a happy ever after.

Muladhara Chakra – The Root Chakra Pt 1

Muladhara Chakra | Secret Mirrors

It was from her abode of the Muladhara Chakra that Shakti had ferociously arisen, her keeper had finally released her; but her release was not going to be plane sailing to say the least. Muladhara Chakra or the “Root chakra” is the lowest most centre in the etheric energy system. The Muladhara Chakra is located at the lower end of the spinal column, where the energy kundalini sits patiently, dormant and unconscious until her release.

Within this chakra you will find housed all the information that you have accumulated in your lifetime. It will be based on all the unconscious seeds that you have sown and the karma (actions) that you have conducted. It is a storage facility that keeps you unconsciously trapped in a cycle of play, pause and repeat. Only when you have become aware of Shiva and Shakti and attained a balance, is it safe for the storage facility to be opened. This is exactly what had happened when Shakti had been released from her prison. Everything that had kept me in a repetitive cycle for all these years had finally been exposed, you can only imagine what that would have felt like. Remember when I was questioning “Who Am I” you can now probably envision what I may have been going through. One minute everything was going perfectly well… “thats what I had thought” and then suddenly the next minute “ca-boom”. Everything I had ever believed was all thrown up into the air and I was left reeling with all the broken pieces. The jigsaw that I had been trying to put together for all of these years had just been restarted, but it was the revelations that came with this release that was going to change life forever.

When the Muladhara Chakra is first activated qualities that you have been unaware of can be suddenly released these can be either positive or negative in nature. Until it happens to you, you will not know what the experience is going to be like. A positive experience is accompanied by the feeling of freedom, joy, balance, happiness and an overwhelming completeness with oneself. A negative experience can be that of pure destruction, anger, rage and a consuming need to fulfill passion and desires. This is why it is so important that both purusha and prakriti are fully awake and ready to help with balancing of whatever experience you entail. All that I had to work on was slowly being released, the problem for me was that it was not happening at a slow and steady pace. I was finding I was being hit with everything in one go, before I had come to understand one of my demons the next was up and ready to show its head. “Just my luck” I would think, having always been impatient with everything previously I was being given a good dose of my own medicine.

Times had now become testing and I was being tested on all fronts, the feeling of being pulled in all directions is what I had been feeling like. Nothing or nobody could protect me from this, I had unconsciously created my own demons and I now had to consciously banish them forever. I was sure Shakti’s release was going to be a blessing, but at this moment in time my optimism was on a fine tether. I had to keep strong, I had to continue facing my fears.

Everything you want is on the other side of fear.’ – Jack Canfield

The Past Pollutes Your Future

The moment you open your garbage bin and start using it for anything but waste storage then you are in trouble.

The mind is like a garbage bin and it is full of all information you collect on a daily basis. From the day you were born it has been filled subconsciously with impression’s, views and thoughts all based on particular points in time. This storing of rubbish has no validity to you at all, other than to try protect your identity… Your ego… You will find that the mind is very clever when it comes to recycling. It uses this past information to add value to the present moment.. And in turn it tries to sway your future outcome. All the mind is doing is protecting itself, it is protecting its identity, the ego is trying to remain intact. When the ego is threatened it will do whatever it can to keep you oscillating between past and future, between recycling and polluting….

Only when you discover the difference between mind, pain-body, self and supreme self will you slowly discover the rubbish the mind has been creating. Only then will you find ways to work on clearing your mind and living in the present.

@secretmirrors clearing the past to ensure a clutter free future.

Silent Message Inwards

Silent Message Inwards

Every night without fail she makes her appearance. Her mood might change but her intentions always remain the same. She is here to show you the way. In the silence of the night her glow fills the darkness, she is the light for those who are seeking the path.

In order for you to be shown the way you must first acknowledge her beauty. You must first fall in love with her each and every night, no matter how her mood changes. When she is ready she will give you her message. But you must first show her your devotion, then only will the path be revealed.

Believe me when I say this…. She is worth it…

Gate Keeper | Shakti Enters A New Space

Gate Keeper | Secret Mirrors

Patience has always been seen as a virtue and who better too show it to me than the gate keeper. The gate keeper had been seated quietly in pose, just waiting patiently for the time to come to hear his long awaited order. A gentle voice now whispered “son its time open the gates for me, let me light up the path that will lead you to heaven”. As the gate keepers gates crashed open, a burst of intense energy (shakti) surged straight through, it had just entered a new space, fiercely it burst forth free and electrifying. It was at that very moment that I came to realise how important Shiva had really become. She needed controlling and it would take a conscious effort on my part to ease her down slowly.

I can only imagine from this standpoint that if Shiva had remained dormant, and by some random chance Shakti had passed through the gates then destruction would definitely have been on the cards. Fortunately for me the gate keeper had kept things held in place. Only when both Shiva and Shakti were active could Shakti enter her new abode. Her journey needed guidance but where was she going? Why did she need close vigilance? New questions were arising; I knew now though that the answers would reveal themselves exactly when needed. Fear no longer drove me, I had become fearless. I felt free and anew, this change was amazing and I was naturally evolving to keep it that way.

All this time Shakti had been sitting dormant in her home of the muladhara chakra, her son ganesha had been guarding her very closely. She was a coiled serpant waiting to be set free, freedom was what she had been seeking but only when her patience was under control would she be granted her wish. Only her keeper could order her to pass, only then could kundalini begin her ascension back to her origin, her source. Her journey was not going to be easy; but knowing that Shiva was by her side she would find comfort with every step she took. There were going to be many challenges on her new path, each one exposing her to new battles. It was in these battles she would come to learn about life and it would be from these lessons she would experience all that life would have to offer her. Shiva would always be silently guiding her when she was faced with adversity and it was in this solace she knew that she was safe and secure. It was in his arms that she would find a new love, a love for who and what she really was.

The real journey had just began, one of immense importance, one that could reset everything I had ever known. The jigsaw was slowly piecing together and one day it would finally reveal its secret.
