  1. Beautiful wisdom dear Amy… Well said my friend…. We now need to step out of fear and into our hearts freedom of choice, to have the ability to choose… Freedom of Choice… In the Sovereignty over our health and Human Rights and freedoms…
    Much love and respect dear Amy…. Its now time to choose.. Love over Fear.. ❤ ❤ ❤

    1. Too many are living fear, Sue. Their energy is polluting the world. Even our trees and our gardens felt the brunt of this very low and heavy energy. Yet Love being the more powerful of the two, is rising. I see it. I am witnessing it. I avoid those places where fear is founded and even when I do go to those places, a cloud of protection is around me and I can actually feel love radiating out from me.
      I have a doctor’s appointment soon and I know she will bring up the flu shot as she did with my hubby just last week. I am going to look at her and say, “According to WHO, the flu no longer exists. So why is medicine still giving the flu vaccine?” I have every intention of getting this doctor to think and if she doesn’t, it’s on her. Yes we do have a choice in our freedom no matter what others do or say. I will not play victim as so many others are, and I will not depend on a few to make changes. All of us are responsible to make changes when we can. And I and I alone am responsible for my health, no one else! Much love and respect in return to you, dear friend!! BIG (((HUGS)))!! xo

      1. Same here Amy I got a text saying I needed one.. I have not been to the Drs now in six years…. They are pushing it… and the old people who have had it are getting sick.. When you listen to Dr Tenpenny and see what is in them…. Everyone would think twice of getting them..
        Personal responsibility is what each of us has to take back.. The control of our own health…
        Much love Amy and stay blessed my friend ❤ 🙂

    1. The only way to become master over those irrational fears, Lyndsi, is to face them, know that they have existed to teach you, and then show those fears a different way of acting so that you are no longer afraid. It’s called self-empowerment. xo

    1. It takes many years to find love through hard work and an honest look at the fears that lie within each one of us. No amount of book reading will be sufficient. It’s taken me years to get back to love and that journey was far from easy. This journey still continues today and will not cease until my last breath. Articles and books yes do help us remain focused but it is up to you to do the work to change fear to love.

    1. Wisdom through experience is the only Wisdom I know of, Barbara. And what worth is Wisdom if not passed on and shared? Yes I know of that knot in the chest and in the stomach as well. I won’t allow fear to eat me up however. I deal with it in the ways I’ve come to learn. Thank you for reading and supporting what I share here. Blessings to you in every way possible!! Much love to you! xo

  4. The late kobe Bryant quoted IF YOU ALREADY FEAR YOU LOST. I grew up letting the fear of failure control me. I was too afraid of getting anything going until I read a wise quote that said IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE PERFECT TO GET IT STARTED. Youre right. It’s a choice and many choose fear.

    1. What a fantastic quote. Thank you for sharing it. I agree!! Fear paralyzes you and fear prevents you from moving forward in your life fully and lovingly. There is no such thing as perfect in my world. I do my best and my best is good yet to strive for perfection only sets up anyone for failure. Choosing fear is a choice, a dismal one and you are so right in that many have chosen it. Once love is experienced, fear is not even an option. Thank you so much for this comment. Meant a lot to me! xo

  5. I absolutely love this I’ve had to deal with fear for a few years of my life from my step dad, I’ve seen the bad side of “love” someone who didn’t love my mother, I used to write short stories it helped me in many ways and I would go to elementary schools and read them my short stories to little kids who loved them. I kind of stopped over the years but I realized I needed to get back into writing ✍️ I saw this post and I just related to it in so many ways. I love this, great job! 🙂

  6. This is a great post. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts on fear. Choosing Love over fear is so difficult because it requires one to be vulnerable, open and trusting. It’s almost like we are trained from birth to be otherwise.

    1. Thank you, Beck, and you are so very welcome for the share. Love is worth choosing however every time. Fear is so heavy and just takes so much energy from us. The journey is often long and very challenging but living in love I highly recommend. xo

    1. Thank you, Amy. I made a promise to myself years ago I would not get involved in any way outside of my personal life in two subjects which are religion and politics. That holds true today. I do not write about those subjects nor do I leave comments on political posts. xo

  7. Excellent post! I too avoid horror movies, too much news and even crime based shows. Focusing on godly activities such as bible reading, prayer, uplifting my neighbors and preaching the good news of God’s Kingdom brings so much joy amidst a world full of fear. When I do get anxious I remember the words found at Isaiah 41:10 and I gain so much comfort, “Do not be afraid, for I am with you.Do not be anxious, for I am your God.I will fortify you, yes, I will help you,I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness.’”

    1. Thank you very much! Whatever helps you maintain your joy, that is exactly what you need to do. I applaud you! Fear is not of God! I love Isaiah 41:10. Stay strong! We’ve got this!! xo

    1. Love hands down, Petrina! Not easy in today’s world and especially when I get passionate about current events and speak my mind. I always have to remind myself the other person sometimes does not know love so will not act or speak or write with love. So glad you liked this post. Thank you! xo

  8. Although I agree with a lot of statements made. I also disagree with a few. I’ve been on a journey to improve myself to become “enlightened” it has always seemed elusive. I don’t beleive in the notion that loving yourself dissipates fear completely. Nothing can remove fear entirely. I’ve learnt tk channel it. And once channelled appropriately fear can encourage and motivate

    1. I believe you misunderstood my point in my post, “Love Or Fear … Your Choice”. I was speaking about how to LIVE life from either the perspective of love or fear. It is all about how we live our lives. In choosing love, oh yes fears do arise and as I stated: “And when fear does rise to the surface I do not hide from that fear or push it back down. I stick with it until I resolve it.”
      Thank you for taking the time to read this post. I encourage you to reread it so that you receive the true meaning of what I wrote. Bless you. xo

  9. I have experienced most of those symptoms you listed as the result of fear and panic. I was not able to help myself in my own strength. It wasn’t until I surrendered completely before my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ that fear no longer kept me shackled. Thank you for writing about the impact of fear on lives and the hope that life doesn’t have to be lived in panic, anxiety, and worry.

    1. I’m truly happy for you. Whatever way we find in order to overcome our own fears so that we can truly live in love and peace, that is the way to health and happiness. Fear really does kill. I’ve been hearing more stories lately how fear has led to illness that could have been avoided.

  10. Amy, Amy, Amy! You are something special. I absolutely adore everything you’ve shared here. I’m not sure how I missed this post but my goodness am I glad that I found it today. My head is being nodded in wholehearted agreement. Love IS the answer. It is my personal belief that we were created with a “Christ-sized” hole in our hearts that can only be filled with the love of God. There is no substitute. That aching void of fear, doubt, insecurity, anxiety, worry, etc … it’s all there to point us to the reason we are alive — to love and be loved by the Father who created us!

    Your paragraph here really touched my heart: “Fear paralyzes and strips those in fear of their personal power. This leaves vulnerability and confusion in its wake, opening doors for others to then control and to manipulate. When fear is present, critical thinking flies right out the window. How can clear thinking even occur within chaos? When in fear, the reaction is to let others tell you what, how, when and where.” — Yes!! Fear does paralyze. It is vicious and does not relent until it kills its victims (even if only in spirit) unless we decide that enough is enough!

    Confusion leads to chaos and chaos leads to dysfunction on every level. So many powers that be use chaos and confusion to instill fear so that just as you said, we no longer think for ourselves. What a tragedy that is!

    You are thought of lovingly and very often, my dear friend. I pray you & your family are well. Know that I have you in my prayers and heart! 😘

    1. Holly, Luv. Oh God!! Know my heart is indescribably breaking again and that is why I am not blogging. I am so glad you found this post, one I strongly feel everyone should read when they come here. My Whispers only 11, is dying of moth cancer and I again will have to call our in-home Vet soon. Doodles died not even 2 months ago and before that our Cookie in September. I’m falling apart. On top of that I have intense cat care with my 3 girls 1-on-1 and Charlie has just been diagnosed with Diabetes. That all by itself is a huge responsibility and very stressful. ALL in this house are reeling, in shock, for what is happening with Whispers came from out of left field. Exhausted, and ready just to fall to pieces there is no way I can blog. On the days I am able I may post with comments closed just to get my head wrapped around other then grief and shock and work. Your comment has brought a decision to the forefront which is I will be moving this post up to feature post.
      My cats are my kids. To loose 3 within a 5 month period is unthinkable at best, a vicious nightmare with no escape at worst. Please pray for me and my family. No one here knows what to do. Whispers’ condition is breaking all of us.
      Much love to you, dear friend. And yes I can still honestly say my heart belongs to love despite my circumstances. Amy
