Impulse of Love and Fear

The impulse of love will pull us in more ways than one; it is definitely an inside job down to the deepest level, the smallest particle of love needs to seep through your system: emotional, spiritual, and physical levels.

Love is the thread that connects each of these layers and allows you to live in a state of internal balance. It has the possibility of creating an eternal magnitude of power through the impulses it sends resonating through your being and through your life out into the world at large. We will begin by directing our attention on your internal balance… of the internal thermostat of your physical and emotional well-being.


During quiet moments, you’re able to ascertain whether you’re in a state of love or a state of fear. Those are basically the two states that are the driving force on this journey.

If you are residing in a state of love, it means all is well. Peace reigns supreme within you it does not mean life is perfect, but it does mean that you are living in a state of contentment; a paradigm of balance and you are for the most part living life in a more present, more self-actualized and interdependent way. Life is good.


However, when those inequities come knocking at your door, whether it’s trying to meet your emotional needs or someone else’s, monetary pressures, or the sometimes daunting task of daily living navigating through with our current level of life skills; fear can represent a big caution sign in going through new experiences, taking risks and creating the lives we innately know we are meant to live.

Fear can lay its unjust hand on the forefront of our lives. Sometimes we are so removed from the fear we are feeling we don’t even realize that we are living in fear.


Our fears can collide with our cosmic power, our cosmic vision of who we are. Fear can be the fuel of malcontent, not knowing where you want to go or who you want to be, but a little disgruntled by what is happening in your life, almost like you want to shake your fists at the powers that be.
How dare you limit me? Why aren’t you cooperating with my desires and wants even though I might not quite know what they are yet? The universe is here to take care of me, isn’t that what they say ‘ask and you shall receive’? Well, what about me, I asked and yet did not receive, or at least not what I asked for


Let’s examine this, is it really that you didn’t receive what you asked for? This is something that requires some reflection by the individual. If you carefully scrutinize what you’re putting out, are you not getting what you asked for?

To manifest what you want, you need to re-examine you’re ‘wantings’ to ensure that in reality you are getting exactly what you asked for.

That is a lot of responsibility being put on your shoulders, but manifesting is not for the faint of heart. If you want to be a creator or co-creator you must learn to put your ear to the heartbeat of what you’re asking for and you do this not by assigning blame to some omnipresent being who is not carrying out your wishes, but by looking at the underlying truth of what it is you are actually wishing for or wanting.

Do you want love or do you fear love and the exacting nature that true intimacy brings into your life. Do you want money or do you fear the responsibility? Do you want to live in the now and be present in your own life or do you fear the responsibility of actualizing this desire?


We are unconsciously embracing impulses of resentment, anger, scarcity, and stepping away from the tribe of humanity; living in isolation, withdrawing from the higher impulses around us and instead mistakenly embracing lower level frequencies and impulses…

At a very basic level, most individuals want love: affection, security, peace and acceptance. This would lead them into a state of internal contentment that many crave but have found elusive, so far.

Instead of allowing in the impulse of love and serenity which are very internal aspects of living in a more enlightened way… there is an unconscious tendency to balance ourselves with confusion and mire our lives in malcontent.

We are hungry for the connection we felt with the old tribal system. The sense of community we aspire to equals a greater sense of connectedness. We thrive when we feel connected, we feel deprived when we feel that lack of connection: to ourselves, to others and to that higher aspect of who we are and where we strive to live from.
