Alleviate Fear and Light Your Path
Let there be Light
I often think about what it would be like to go to a new place and set up my life in totally unfamiliar territory. To have the Universe light your path. I have done exactly that but I still ponder taking on this challenge again. It didn’t always go according to plan. So that gives me not only a sense of the unknown, but a memory of things having gone wrong.
It can be difficult to put yourself back on a path that didn’t go how you want it to. It’s not unlike learning to trust again in a relationship that has gone off track. You have to relearn how to trust the Universe to light your path.
There can be fear of things going the same as before, fear that you aren’t worthy of having things work out for you, fear that your dreams are just that, dreams. Never to be realized in this lifetime. Fear that you will feel like a failure. It may not be paralyzing, but it can put that next step on the back burner (at least for a little while). And that’s not a bad thing. Because you don’t want to make a big decision until you’re feeling great and inspired to do so.
The Universe Lights your Path
You may know this. You may know that you don’t make a decision until it feels right. So let me ask you this. If the Universe were to light your path, what would that be like?
For me, it would be ease and flow. The decisions would flow and it would feel easy and right. It would be exciting and exhilarating. The ideas and opportunities would pour into my life. I would feel the exhilaration of the wind in my hair as if were driving in the fast lane. People would cross my path at the right time and the solutions would appear as soon as I need them.
So how do you achieve the Fun without the Fear?
When I pondered this in my meditation, this is the vision I received… My guidance was standing with me. There were many standing behind me and shedding brilliant light in many directions and yet it was still dark ahead. Then I asked them to move ahead of me and send the light ahead so that I could see better. As soon as this happened, the fear dissipated and I was surrounded by light. The light wasn’t coming from me and emanating outward. Instead it was ahead of me and lighting the path back towards me. What was unknown had become visible.
That’s always the key to allieviating fear. Making the unknown, familiar. Rather than the light moving outward, it was illuminating the path in front of me. Instead of it coming from me, it was traveling to me.
That’s how it was for me and that’s how the Universe will light your path as well. In this way you don’t need blind faith, just a healthy optimism about what’s to come.
Excitement = Joy
Now I know from experience that feeling excited and making decisions is the best way to feel joy, have that loving experience and move in the direction of my dreams. That seems like everything I want.
However, the next piece of the puzzle is in holding the light. Because when I am on my path and things happen quickly, as they tend to do, I have a tendency to wander into fear mode. It’s much like buyer’s remorse but it’s worse. Much worse. It’s decision remorse. And it leaves me second-guessing myself by pondering if I wouldn’t have been better off where I was before, rather than looking into the abyss of the unknown. Wouldn’t I have been better to stay in my comfort zone? I mean, I already had a good life.
These are the types of thoughts that leave me feeling totally unsupported and yet I’ve played this game many times and have never won. So it’s not a game I’d like to master, nor to play over and over again. (Even though many people do.)
Thriving in The Light of Change
I want to feel a sense of sureness and security from a move into the unknown. I need to feel supported. Plus a sense of this being right. Also the feeling of sureness of myself and my decision. To believe in me, because if it was right before, it is still right now.
It’s practicing that last detail that will advance my journey forward into the unknown. I’m never alone and if I feel that I am, I know I’m not connected to my Source Energy. When that happens, my focus is to get connected. Because when I’m connected, I can see the light my guidance shines towards me. I feel powerful in my own life. That’s how I want to live my life moving forward. Powerful and connected to who I really am.
Finding the Guidance Within
To move in the direction of my dreams I have taken a 30 Day Challenge to spend 10 minutes a day (or night) writing, speaking or recording ‘as if’ the future has already unfolded. In this way my future self is illuminating the path for my reality self. In essence I am showing myself the way forward. It’s tapping into my higher guidance and finding the answers within. I love this method as I glean a lot of insight into what steps to take next.
The ‘as if’ method is nothing new. In fact, imagining ‘as if’ something has already happened is even in the bible I am told. The part that was illuminated for me, is the lighting of the path for my now self to follow. In effect, showing myself the way forward.

Who am I?
I’m Gayle Maree, creator of 6 Dimensions of Healing, author, mother of 7 and Spiritual Counselor for over 23 years.
Someone once told me (a well-respected mentor) that people need “experts” to live a life they value… and I didn’t believe them.
I thought everybody could do it on their own because I did. I figured out what didn’t work in my life and then I changed it. Actually, I changed me. And it was a LOT of work!
Not because I was trying to impress those that told me I had a ‘bad attitude’ or I had something to prove to people who thought I was lousy at pretty well everything, but because there were aspects of me that even I didn’t like. I wanted improvements in me and my life.
Change Versus Comfort
It was obvious to me that if I didn’t make changes I could expect more of the same in my life as before. The same things that didn’t work, the same relationships that my parents had.
I wanted more. Mostly, I wanted my kids to be proud of me. Damn it, I wanted to be proud of myself.
So, I set about what would be a continuous, amazing journey.
I’ve been with my Spiritual Soulmate over 30 years now and we still work on the relationship, we work on improving us, because we know that whatever we want, to get it we need to be different to how we were.
And I listen so much more now because I value the wisdom of my non-physical guides who have been with me for as long as I can remember.
Now it’s your turn
This is the same path I used to make the changes that led to a valued and prosperous life. So much more than I ever imagined.
The path is laid out in our book 6 Dimensions of Healing
