Gaining Control over fear, worry and sorrow
So many of us have unexpectedly become overwhelmed by negative emotions, even to the point of driving us to behave in ways that are not in our own best interest, like going down an emotional, dark rabbit hole. We can let fear , worry and sorrow dominate our thinking and behavior repeatedly, to the point of crippling us. Yet, negative emotions can be used for a great spiritual purpose and benefit.
Emotions like fear, worry and sorrow can be a spring board to higher consciousness… from which you can create the reality you desire.
When we suffer we eventually look for a way out. We desire freedom, strength, and happiness. And there is a very simple path to emotional freedom.
That path starts with an awareness in the moment. And if you are experiencing fearful emotions, release. Then an embrace of that emotion that you want to become a condition in your reality. The more you embrace the emotion you desire in the present moment the more of those same energies you draw to yourself through the Law of Attraction.
If we want a happy existence then we must create it. And it starts with our awareness.
Be the Watcher of the Thinker
Learn to observe your negative emotions, using all your senses and listening to your Higher Self to gain some insight and control. This step is somewhere we move through quickly, then we get to the good stuff!
Consider this method I use to come to the moment:
Pause your thinking, take a deep breath, release and relax. Quiet the monkey chatter; be ‘the watcher of the thinker.’ Observe your thoughts and attitude from a higher consciousness. Draw them into you and feel them fully without any harsh judgment. Observe your body, i.e. facial expression and body posture because your body language can give you great insights!

Learn from Your Emotions
I ask myself questions without getting attached to the answers and all judgmental, like:
- Is any part tensed, tight or temporally frozen? Is my stomach in a knot?
- Do I feel urged to lash out verbally, shout, cry, or fight?
- Do I feel like I’ve been hit hard and want to shut down?
You have to know what you feel in order to get to the heart. Once you answer some analytic questions impersonally and recognize you are tempted to behave negatively, then you can use it as a spring-board to go deeper in understanding of yourself.
Reasoning, conscious mind can go only so far in understanding, you must also feel your understanding with an open heart that is inspired by your Higher Self. Look up within to your Higher Self and ask yourself deeper questions like:
- Why is it so important to me that I am attached to …fear… worry… sorrow?
And, to the heart of the matter, the questions:
- Am I reacting this way because I feel unloved or unloving?
- Am I coming from a place of fear or love in my heart?
Disabling Negative Emotions
It doesn’t help to stay in the questioning mode very long. It’s just a leaping pad to better things! When you ask such a question of yourself with deep sincerity you will begin to feel a change in your attitude. The emotion of sincerity and desire for Truth opens the door to Love within you, and the illusion of the negative emotion will begin to disperse.
Sincerity liberates love within your heart and you gain a glimpse of yourself as a powerful spirit and soul. And those realizations and reality is what we want to attract more of!
Your Heart is your Magnetic Center of Attraction. So it attracts what you feel! Therefore, consciously embrace uplifting emotions. Visualize yourself with a happy heart and expressing goodwill to others. Keep coming back to feeling uplifted, calm and relaxed. Make the Mental Contact with Universal Life Energy which is a powerful ally because It is Strength, Wisdom and Love that empowers those same energies within yourself, within your Soul.
Then smile. Putting a smile on your face triggers neurons to connect with emotions that cause you to smile. The body causes the mind to engage in a like manner.
You may be tempted to be drawn back in right then and there, but you have already put Light and Love on it, so it is weakening. Mentally we know there are dire conditions in the world, yet emotionally we are working to lift ourselves so that we may be able to help us all.
Continually focus on thinking uplifting thoughts…. visualizing happy conditions… appreciating the moment fully…contacting Universal Life Energy. And, the more you do this the more of the same energies are attracted. Things will begin to synchronize, including our behaviors and actions so that we are also physically creating the reality we desire.
It’s a spiritual journey
Our freedom from fear, worry, sorrow is started from a corner of alert awareness and consciousness, then built from a place of Enthusiasm, Wisdom, Truth and Love… the FourSquare. This is a spiritual journey. A journey in which we must travel in today’s world and today’s conditions, with fear circling the earth. And we can rise above fear now, helping ourselves and helping others.
We build and create our happiness by starting with conscious consideration, goodwill and compassion in our thoughts, emotions. And allowing those energies positively influence our attitudes and behaviors. And this is something that each and everyone of us can do!

Until next time consider this quote to reflect upon:
“The elimination of Fear, then, is largely conditioned on the elimination of this shadow, from which it is spawned, Ignorance.”
Eugene Fersen, The Fundamental Principles of Science of Being, pages 158-9.
