The Antidotes…to Stress…Fear…and Anxiety…

Isis with Horus – African Prototype-Virgin Mary With Child – Altar/Photograph by Toni Roberts

I…as you…am a mere mortal working diligently to maintain balance and equilibrium in a world gone berserk…the only thing preventing me from flying apart into a million confused pieces is Time spent with the Ancestors…hours communing with my Spirit Guides…and seeking Divine Counsel from my Family which art on the Other Side of Life

I have thus discovered the antidotes to STRESSFEAR…and ANXIETY…The three causes of all that ails us…throwing our bodiesminds…and souls out of kilter…and into states of diseaseimbalance…and despair

 

STRESSOne may replace all traces of STRESS…with PEACE

One may…indeed…achieve a “peace beyond understanding…”a lasting PEACE that remains with one throughout the day…by simply beginning each day in quiet prayerjournaling…and in Meditative Contemplation in one’s Sacred Space

This daily time of SILENCE…surrounded by Living Spirit then becomes one’s anchor in this life…one’s “church…”one’s “religion…”

One’s antidote to STRESS

 

FEAR…the “mind-killer…” cannot exist in the same space with LOVE and GRATITUDE

And so…one must remain mindful each moment of each day of what one is feeling…

Mindful…of the Energy that one is projecting out into the world with every thoughtword…and action

Are you responding to the world with LOVE…? Or with ridicule and judgment…?

Do you give when and where you see a need that you can fulfill…?

Are you living each day mindful of the healing power of LOVE…?

Are you immersing yourself in loving Energy whenever…wherever…and with whomever you can…?

One finds that FEAR all but disappears in the abundance of LOVE…pouring naturally…Un-summoned…from one’s heart into the world…

LOVE is then proven to be an inherentintrinsicinborn antidote to FEAR

 

ANXIETY…once you have accepted the Reality that you did not create yourself…it then follows that there must exist…in some Realm or OtherTHAT WHICH CAUSED YOU INTO BEING

Whatever It may be…

By Whatever Name called…

It then follows that this Creative Intelligence…that created you…knows why It has created you…

Therefore…

Your only job is to learn why you are here

The Purpose in your being human on planet Earth

It then becomes easy to relax into your life…whatever it may look like at any given moment…with the TRUST that your CREATOR will show you the reason for your BEING

You can then put one trustingfaithful foot before the other as you step carefully through the most troubling and fearful times

Knowing that THAT WHICH CAUSED YOU INTO BEING…also knows what It is doing with your life

Right hereRight nowStep by stepWalk in faithful knowing

Live your life with TRUST

The antidote to ANXIETY

 

Ase and Goddess bless us all.

The Silence…

There is nothing more filled or fulfilling as SILENCE

Drink long, deeply and often

From your Inner Well of SILENCE 

From thence flows the FORMATION of the world…

  

(A bit of hard-earned Wisdom from the pen of Toni Roberts.)

I Am Learning To Accept The TRUTH…

That I do not know what will happen in the next moment…much less tomorrow…

And so…I turn inward to That Which knows all there is to know

To That Which will deliver me safely

Into all of my tomorrows

for

WHOLENESS

HEALING

and

SELF-UNDERSTANDING

never

go

UNANSWERED

(we cannot, however, have one without the others!)

 

   in fact…

as a

bonus

from the

REALMS OF THE DIVINE…”

we also learn…via answered prayer…that we are the only thing standing in our way

blocking

the

BLESSINGS

that

are

our

natural

   INHERITANCE…
