"Fear is an attractive force, like love, " Lester said. We may have also heard, "What you fear, will appear." Why is this?" Actually, it is quite simple. This may shock you, but here goes: Fear is in reality WANTING something to happen! For Sedona Method grads, it is just below Lust on the Energy Chart. The Lust feeling of Wanting something gets suppressed into the lower energy of Fear, where we can pretend we are a victim.
If you look at the Tree of Limitation on page 3 of my site (bio below), you will see that beliefs are represented by the trunk of the tree. That means they are right above the Master Programs of the 3 wants of the Sedona Method. These programs (expressed in computer-speak) are almost as limiting as the lower ones, but are many times more readily seen and experienced. As with any tree, the further down one goes, the thicker and harder the wood is, and the more difficult it becomes to chop it down and remove it from our path. If we just deal with the leaves and branches (thoughts and feelings), the results are slow and ineffective.
What you fear, will appear. Fear is like a magnet. Why is this? This may shock you, but here it is. Fear is in reality WANTING something to happen. In the Sedona Method, it is just below Lust on the Energy Chart. The lust feeling of wanting something gets suppressed into the lower energy of Fear, where we can pretend we are a victim. It makes us blame other things or people.
We don't like to take responsibility for things. We "want" this terrible thing to happen, but we are embarrassed about it. So we push it down into fear, so we can blame it on someone else. Does this happen to you?
Why do we all spend years releasing on a goal, never to see it manifest? Many of us just give up. Releasing doesn't work on big things. "I am doing it wrong." "He could do it, but not me." We have all at least had passing thoughts like this. I know I have. So what is the problem, and more importantly, the solution?
When we start working on a goal, we are usually down in apathy or grief. Maybe we get up to lust. We just wallow in the negative low feelings and never release beyond that. We get bogged down by all the feelings that arise when this powerful process begins its work in our minds. If it were not working, nothing would happen. Be happy about that!
"Beliefs Block Your Beingness"
Lester made this statement when talking about beliefs, or as he called them, programs. What does it mean in the practical terms of achieving goals, having more money, and being happier? He said we are like a computer where the programmer has fallen asleep. Programs are long held beliefs that are really decisions we made consciously in the past and are now running unconsciously in the present. By the past he meant a very long time ago in other lives we have experienced. Even though they are running below the light of conscious awareness, they are still active and create a reality in our lives.
I get more emails about people wanting to attract money than anything else by far. It has become more of a problem since the economic meltdown, but it has always been people's #1 issue to cross my desk. Why is money such a pervasive problem? What can we do to drop the fears we have about not having sufficient money even for basic living?
Lester Levenson was not only the 1st American Master, but he was a noted physicist who was asked to work on the Manhattan Project to build the Atomic Bomb that ended World War 2. Even though he declined, he tested everything out in the "lab of himself" as any professional scientist would. The reason I am saying this is so you can have the confidence to try this easy process for yourself. Lester always said, "Take it for checking." If it works for you, you will reap great benefits from it. If not, you have lost nothing.
