Nothing to Fear
For the past five years
we've had a snake living in our backyard who totally freaked me out on
so many levels, but even worse Majik (my
saw him this summer in the grass and decided he did not want to get in
the grass to do his business. This can definitely cause a problem. So, I
commanded the snake to leave! Clearly he is gone, because we now have
his dinner as a guest - a mouse has decided our home is Mouse Condo -
all sizes welcome!
I was cleaning out the cabinet under the sink of mouse unspeakables and
having a fit when Fred pointed out I should be doing a commercial for
somebody because I was doing the cleaning in a dress! I thought this was
an odd thing for Fred to say, but perfectly in line with something Big
Jim would say, so I looked around, but didn't see him. Fred left. I was
fussing and ranting and raving about the mouse. Then I heard him
laughing. There he was (not the mouse), but Big Jim, sitting at my
kitchen table totally cracking up. He said, "it's ONLY a mouse!" I
didn't agree - at all!
I was finished, so I got my journal and took it outside to sit in the
sun with my dad. He joined me and talked about the comings and goings in
the spirit world - many coming home, but many taking on the journey of
returning. Then he commented about our gifts and how we all have them
and that we must embrace these gifts and release fear. He pointed out
that in our human mind the worse thing that can happen to us is that we
die when in actuality it is the best thing that can happen - to return
home. What he was trying to get across to me is that the reality is:
there is nothing to fear - just do our work, embrace who we are and
allow ourselves the luxury of the blessed truth of being One with God.
While he was at it, Big Jim also pointed out that my feelings toward the
mouse were fear based - not that I'm afraid of the mouse, but I was
outraged and angry that a mouse was living in our home - yup, fear
Fear is debilitating. It is up to us to transmute our fear based
feelings to that of love and live our lives from the love base. When we
do this, miracles occur.
I managed to release my animosity (fear based) feelings toward the
mouse, send him love and demand he and all his multi-sized friends leave
our home to find someplace better for them. So far, no sign of them!
Love base is ALWAYS better than fear base!
In love and light,
Kate and Big Jim
