The essence of a happy and fulfilled life is inner peace and personal empowerment. Living in the present and from a heart space supports you in attracting positive experiences.

Choosing love over fear signifies that you view your life from the vantage point of goodness, love, strength and hope, as well as peace, love and harmony, as opposed to fear, competition, one-up-man-ship, and the need to prove that something about you, your life or what you do is more right than that of another individual.

Choosing love over fear means every situation always brings you to a win-win end result.

Choosing love over fear as modus operandi for your life; a way to live your life that will literally change everything for you.

Choosing love over fear will also change the effect you have on all those whose lives you touch and so YOU will actively – and most literally – contribute to change our world.

Choose love. Choose it for you, your loved ones, your neighborhood, your community, your nation and your world. We are all in this together and we can all contribute to making this change. All it takes is all of us choosing love over fear. Remember that we are all one and that what affects one of us, affects us all.

The key aspect to changing your state of being with intention is to first realize that it is possible. We can control our emotions by taking responsibility for them and remember that our feelings are a result of our thoughts. No-one can “make us feel” a certain way and although we can’t control what other people do, we can control our reaction to them and their actions by shifting our perspective. When someone “makes you” angry for example, look at what your underlying fear is and be grateful that this person has drawn your attention to a fear or shadow belief you have about yourself, giving you the opportunity to integrate this aspect of yourself.

Remember that your thoughts are electrical and your emotions magnetic. When your thought are coupled with the corresponding emotion, the combined energies become electro-magnetically charged, amplified and activated to attract more of the same. If you are not enjoying what you are feeling, then you can shift your perspective by changing your thoughts.

“Every human thought, word, or deed is based on fear or love. Fear is the energy which contracts, closes down, draws in, hides, hoards, harms. Love is the energy, which expands, opens up, sends out, reveals, shares, heals. You have free choice about which of these to select.”

“Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudice and the acceptance of love back into our hearts.” – Marianne Williamson
