Sometimes studying three years of Latin in the Convent and then high school sneaks into my thought process. That should tell you something about me, right there. I’ve never thought of Latin as a “ dead language “, as it’s called. It’s a base for so many other languages. Certain phrases seem to have more gravitas when thought of or spoken in Latin. Like the title of this blog. Nihil Desperandum. Never fear.
Fear paralyzes, fear inhibits. All fear is based on things that haven’t unfolded yet. Therefore, they exist only in our minds as possibilities. When you stop and think about it, being afraid of a possibility is pretty silly. It’s like being afraid of a bad dream. It isn’t real. But that’s what we do, we scare the shit out of ourselves over a non-reality. Interesting choice.
Whenever we are afraid, we are accessing an old wound, an old negative belief that needs to be healed. Good. Root it out, and rip it out of your consciousness like a weed. Fear thoughts are like weeds. Left to grow in the sacred garden of your soul, they multiply, taking over the holy ground within us, choking the new growth of positive experiences. Tend the garden of your soul, planting only those thoughts that will bear fruit, and replenish you.
Fear is a liar. It attempts to weaken us. We must not feed it, or give in to it. Flood yourself with truth, with certainty, with love. Feel the love of Spirit surrounding you, filling you. Step into the light, out of the shadows that fear creates. Nihil Desperandum. Never fear. Choose faith, choose trust; in both yourself and the Universe. It’s a magical universe, filled with limitless possibilities. Live from that. Blessings, Judith
