Beyond The Threshold Of Fear:
“Enter the lion’s jungle!
Don’t think about getting hurt!
Fearful thoughts are
phantoms of the mind!
No one is harmed in this jungle.
Everything is compassion and love.
It is your fear holding you back,
like a bar behind the door.”
“How I celebrate for you. After so long away from home, you are finally returning! Beyond the threshold of fear, you dispense with your doubts, hesitations, cautions and tentativeness. They are old friends with whom you no longer have anything in common.
‘Goodbye old friends, I wish you well,’ you say, whilst turning your face to the burgeoning light of a new and yet ancient world. You are visiting as though for the first time and yet, somehow, also remember deep in your sacred heart. Finally, we can sit together in the charming courtyard at home. We shall tell our tales of adventure and laugh, and we’ll dance and sing. Eventually, day shall pass into night and we’ll gaze beneath our feet, our mouths gaping open in awe and minds utterly blank, rendered dumb in sweet submission to beauty, as we watch the world spinning on her axis.”
After so long, you are changing your relationship to fear; no more shall it hold you in its thrall. You are becoming able to observe it, to witness it, even to have compassion rather than resistance. Instead of unconsciously sabotaging your growth and choosing to slumber in darkness, you awaken and delight in the light and sound of your divine being.
Push and pull, one step forward and a half step back. So it has been for so long, and you have endured. Yes, you are winning the race, brave one, and fear is left to fizzle out. It was always a far less beautiful firework than your passionate conviction for love anyway. Better to let that dazzling firework come to light instead – much more satisfying.
Oh, what a spiritual marathon you have been running! Now the end is in sight. You are drinking the sacred waters to replenish you from your journey. The cups are pushed into your hands by encouraging angels as you approach that blessed sash marking the finish line. Your body and soul are on this journey together and now they are ready for victory, and yes, to rest and recover from the effort. Rest now before a new adventure begins from a completely different state of being.
This oracle comes with spiritual guidance for you. You have broken through a barrier, a self-imposed barrier of fear (whether it seemed to originate from within your consciousness or from an external set of circumstances) that held you back from taking the steps you are now taking, or just about to take. These steps may feel strange, new, uncertain and exciting. Your mind might not have received the memo that fear based existence is no longer in operation for you. It may need a loving, tender, reassuring and firm update that the relationship you have with fear is now rather different. You are the witness, not the victim. Your consciousness is strong enough to hold it in compassion. You don’t collapse under its weight; in fact, it is becoming less and less substantial for you. When it is there, it seems less convincing than what it once appeared to be, compelling still at times perhaps, but not anywhere near as powerful as it once was. That power has been claimed by your heart instead.
So give your mind the memo! Get used to the new way and take steps. Test your legs – you’ll find them powerful and ready. Get set to fly! Test your wings – trust is one, daring is the other. You’ll find them enthusiastic for flight and ready to learn to ride the currents, purpose-built for soaring to great heights. Trust in your vision – without the murky filter of fear it is sharp and clear. You can see what is meant for you, what is true for you what is beckoning you forward now. Take the running leap. There is no darkness and light for you anymore – just life, living, free and clear. I’ll be running and flying beside you. We’ll soar and dive and rise, together. Let’s play!”*

We are inundated by fear and chaos. That is how they are trying to control us; it’s always worked in the past. They want us to feel small, insignificant and powerless. They want us to feel that there is nothing that we can do to change what is happening. They want us in victim mode, helpless, hopeless, fearful and distrusting. It’s called Separation.
But it’s shifting. We are shifting. We are waking up. Awakening.
Their hold is loosening, not because they want it to but because they can no longer hold us. We are too bright, too full of Light. Too powerful. Too peaceful.
We can change what is happening by refusing to buy into the fear and the chaos. It is not an easy job, yes it is challenging and yes there will be opposition. But, it is necessary, it is vital and it is no longer an option to ignore what must be done. It is no longer feasible to sleepwalk, to ignore, to play small. It is time to come out of hiding and blaze brightly, so brightly that empowerment is the only option.
