Fear of the Unknown

One of the learning points that keeps coming up for me is being comfortable with the Unknown. This is not always the easiest situation to deal with, but I am finding that the more I am in the space of the unknown, the easier it is to handle.

You see, back before I began my spiritual work, I was a very logical minded person, focused on schedules and planning everything out for myself. This was all done in an attempt to control what was happening in my life. And, as I began to become more aware, I had to learn bit-by-bit to give up my need to be in control.

I have recently had some people l ask me: “How are you able to do this? How are you able to let go of the need to know how everything will happen?” Some days it is not easy, but truthfully most of the time being in a place of surrender is very peaceful.

I often explain it by thinking about my life like a room filled with filing cabinets, each one representing a different topic and area of life. For the longest time, I felt that I had to be in charge of every filing cabinet. I would never let another person, or even my guides, assist me in any way. However, as I became more and more aligned with my guides, I found it that it grew easier and easier to relinquish my need to guard and monitor all of the filing cabinets. Finally coming to a place where I can totally surrender that duty I placed on myself.

By doing so, I have become much more able to cope with change, the unknown, and all things that cannot be controlled or planned for. It is by surrendering my need to be in control, that I can see how much energy I wasted trying to figure everything out. Now I can find the peace of mind to sit back, and allow my intuition to direct me, instead of being in a state of stress.

And, so where many people will find chaos in the unknown, I find that it has now become quite peaceful. (At least most of the time)
