3 Ways to Feel Safer

Whether tormented about what’s going to happen, worried over losing something, or just uncomfortable with change, many of us are simply trying to get through the day without letting the fear consume us.

Keep asking and waiting until those blameful answers dwindle, and they will.  It may take several tries, several days, or several weeks depending on how angry and dug in you are. When the anger loosens its grip, even a little bit, you will be able to be aware of your heart’s answers.

Often we need to get the courage to do what our heart has been telling us to do and stop tolerating it. It may ruffle some feathers, but it helps everyone in the long run.

3   TRUST YOUR INTUITION

One of the ways to start feeling safer is to stop putting ALL your faith in the government, laws, and anyone or anything out there that is promising you security. Instead, trust your intuition or inner guidance. You know, that silent voice or knowing inside that can quell your fears, pull you out of any jam, and solve any situation without hurting anyone, including you.
