Do You Fear Spirits? You’re Not Alone. We Can Help.
Fear is a normal reaction
Except for babies and young children, fear is pretty much everyone’s first reaction when they encounter spirits. It certainly was for us. Knowing where it comes from is the first step in overcoming it.
Fear of the unknown
I think its fair to say that many of us fear the unknown. The first time we do or try anything, it’s a little scary because we don’t know what is going to happen or what to expect.
This applies when you first encounter a spirit. You most likely weren’t expecting it and a typical reaction is “What the heck?” And you’re scared. Not surprising at all.
Fiction helps fuel it
Writers and Hollywood have also done a great job of instilling fear of Spirit in the general populace. Amityville Horror. The Exorcist. Poltergeist. The Shining. (I’m showing my age…) The Others. Paranormal Activity. And let’s not forget all the scary stories we tell each other growing up. Doesn’t do much to make you confident that spirits are loving and kind, does it?
We all dread bad news
None of us like to get bad news. We fear it. And we fear that spirits are going to bring us bad news. We might be even be afraid that our passed loved ones are going to say something to upset us. Avoidance often becomes our choice.
Here is How You Can Overcome Your Fears:
Stop and think
If you have had visits from Spirit before or they are happening now, take a moment to think about what actually happened. Did anything bad happen? Or did you just feel a presence? Is your fear more about the fact that you were surprised and didn’t understand what was happening?
If you think about the encounter during or after, you will most likely see that the Spirit was just making it’s presence known and wasn’t doing anything bad to you. They just wanted your attention.
Remember fiction is imaginary
As for books, movies and stories about Spirit, it makes great entertainment but is hardly based in reality. The purpose is to scare us silly, not represent the truth. The truth is that spirits are not out to get us or do harmful things to us. They simply want to connect and communicate with us. Remember, its fiction.
Ask for highest guidance and love to come through
When we channel Spirit, we always ask for the highest love and guidance to come through for our clients. You can do this, too, if you are making the connection yourself (see Karen’s blog 4 Tips to Meet with Your Spirit Guide). This ensures that the messages you receive are of the highest intent and therefore there is nothing to fear.
Know you will only get messages you need
When spirits communicate with you, they are doing so because you need the message they have to impart. Spirit knows exactly what you need to hear at the moment of connection and they will never give you information that you are not capable of handling and processing.
Most of the time, your messages will be positive and filled with love. Yes, I said “most” of the time. Does this mean that you might get bad news? It is a possibility. One of my clients put it this way, “Sometimes we get what we need and not what we want.”
If you do get sad news, odds are it is something that you are already know and it is given to you to prepare you. If you do receive such a message it is because you can handle it.
For example, when my Dad was ill, I received messages that his death was close. I knew he wasn’t going to live a long time but having this confirmed by Spirit really made it sink in. It wasn’t happy news but it prepared me for his passing. Also, had I not had these messages, I may not have made as much effort as I did to spend as much time with him as I could before he died.
Know that spirits are not here to harm you
Please remember, the spirit world is not here to terrorize you. Rather, spirits and the messages they bring are here to help you on this journey we call life. They just want to connect and give you a message. You can let go of the fear.
I hope this has helped you overcome any fears of Spirit you may have had. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. We love getting questions from our readers. You can post them below or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We encourage you to share any experiences you’ve had with Spirit with readers. Especially if you started out from a place of fear and had it turn into one of joy.
