Scare City is the name I give the state of Consciousness in which we create scarcity for ourselves and others who choose to experience it.
It isn’t the name of a city, nor is it a specific place. It’s a dimension, a set of beliefs, a level of reality in which we experience limitation, lack, and fear.
Scare City is a mental construct, a set of rules that we agreed to accept to experience the game of duality in the third dimension.
When your thinking is limited, you experience limitation, and your heart center is closed.
When you move out of thinking into feeling, when you shift from the mind to the heart, you feel expansive, you experience expansiveness, and your heart center opens.
Scarcity means a lack, a shortage. It says that there’s not enough to go around.
The truth is that there are some people who are in so much fear that they hoard resources and are unwilling to share. Their fear has sent them into creating a world in which most people really do experience lack.
But it’s also true that . . .
We experience whatever
we believe to be true.
Lack of sharing comes from fear. Fear that there isn’t enough. Fear that others will get something and you won’t.
What do you think would happen if everyone shared all the abundance of resources of this marvelous planet Earth?
I once heard a story about a Saint who died. He was greeted by an angel who said he would be granted one wish before he went to heaven. The Saint requested a visit to hell. The angel took him there.
In hell, everyone was standing around huge pots of delicious smelling stew.
Each person had a huge spoon in his or her hand, but the spoon was so long that they couldn’t bring it to their own mouth, so no one was eating.
Everyone was starving. They all looked emaciated, unhappy, sad, and afraid.
Then the angel took the Saint to heaven. Everyone there was also standing around huge pots of food holding the same enormous spoons.
In heaven, no one was unhappy or afraid. Everyone felt huge love and appreciation for everyone else. Everyone here was eating with those same spoons.
Everyone in heavan was eating because they were all feeding each other.
A few months ago, Lily, the adult daughter of my neighbor, came to my house with a large box of fresh veggies. She told me she had gone to Food Share to get food for herself and her mother, who’s in her eighties. They gave her more food than she had room for in the refrigerator, so she was sharing with me.
I took some veggies, and then after she left, I decided to do some sharing of my own. I went to my pantry, and took canned goods – organic tomatoes, organic beans of various types, and some other things I had available.
When I offered them to Lily, her eyes lit up. She was very grateful to receive these foods. All I said to her was that I wanted to share with her as she had shared with me.
I decided that I would donate to Food Share. I felt that I had no right to receive food from there, but clearly Lily didn’t know that, and I didn’t want to reject her gift or in any way make her feel uncomfortable. Then I sent a donation to Food Share to help others.
I live in a what looks like a middle class neighborhood in a semi-rural area. I was shocked/surprised to discover that hunger was at my neighbor’s door.
Perhaps you, too, would be surprised to know how your neighbors are faring. Or perhaps you and your family are finding it difficult to pay all your bills and have money for food.
You don’t have to experience Scare City any more.
The energies are supporting you in
shifting your Consciousness
from limitation to expansiveness,
from scarcity to ABUNDANCE!
When we’re afraid, we contract – literally.
We pull in our energies and try to be smaller, like a prey animal hiding from a predator.
We try to be invisible by shrinking.
We change our posture to appear smaller, too.
At the same time, our body produces hormones that reduce our ability to think clearly.
Our focus is on fight or flight (hide is part of flight) due to adrenaline being released.
JUST FOR TODAY, try something different.
Put aside your fears and try living in a state of DIVINE LOVE.
Imagine yourself in the FLOW OF ABUNDANCE, receiving all there is to receive and sharing it with others.
DIVINE LOVE also exists in ABUNDANCE. It is limitless and expansive.
When we feel Love, we produce different hormones that allow us to expand and be creative.
We literally sit up straighter and our energy field expands and we thus grow larger.
We become more creative because our brains functions more clearly.
When we connect with Love, different hormones are produced, and this enables our thinking processes to not only improve, but to peak.
Today, decide to LOVE YOURSELF and to send Love to everyone you meet, even if they challenge you in some way or try to give you some of their fear.
Move out of “Scare City”.
Move into “Love City”.
Love conquers fear every time.
Give it a try.
BE THE LOVE.
