How to Let Go of Fear and Return to Love

When you let go of fear, you return to love… ~ Luminita D. Saviuc

What is LOVE

Whenever I ask myself this question, the answer that comes to mind is always the same:

Love is who we are, it’s what we are all made of.

But what does this mean? 

It means that we are all made of love, made with love, and made to love. And whenever we identify with anything other than love, we create an illusion. In doing so, we move away from our Nature and we can no longer remember our Origin.

This is how we start to build a false identity for ourselves, pretending to be something we are not. Taking our sense of worth from outside of us. And no longer from within ourselves...

“Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” ~ Carl Jung

That’s how the struggle begins. And that’s how we start settling for way less than we are worth. Using the past as an excuse for why we can’t move forward in life. And the outer environment as a way to craft a sad, lonely, unhappy, and mediocre life for ourselves. 

Let Go of Fear and Return to Love

“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance.” ~ John Lennon

Love is at the Center of our Being. It is the Core of you and I. But the sad thing is that we have created a world where that feels like total nonsense. We have created a world where fear feels like Truth, and love like a LIE…

Why do you think there’s so much violence in the world; so much pain, hurt, unhappiness, and poverty? Why do you think so many people live in fear, expecting the worst to always happen, talking more about their pains and sorrows than they talk about their joys and blessings?

Because of fear.

Because we have moved away from the Truth of who we are; we have moved away from LOVE. And when you move away from love, how can you not feel scared, disconnected, lost, abandoned, and all alone?

You were made of love. Made with love and made to love. And whenever love is replaced by fear, you can’t help but feel disconnected from the world around you. You can’t help but feel as though something is missing from your life.

Because it is!

That something, the missing piece is LOVE. And the feeling of disconnection comes from the lack of awareness of who you truly are and what you are really capable of being, doing, and having.

The missing is your LOVE…

“It is good to feel lost… because it proves you have a navigational sense of where “Home” is. You know that a place that feels like being found exists. And maybe your current location isn’t that place but, Hallelujah, that unsettled, uneasy feeling of lost-ness just brought you closer to it.” ~ Erika Harris 

No matter how long you have been wondering around, feeling lost, disoriented, and confused; looking outside yourself for all the things you thought were missing from your life, you can always let go of fear and return to love.

Love waits for your return. Not out there, but within the center of your sacred heart and loving Being.

How to Let Go of Fear and Return to Love

“I know you’re tired but come, this is the way.” ~ Rumi

After living in fear for so long, how does one let go of fear and return to love? How does one return to love? Is that even possible?

Of course!

You return to LOVE by first setting a powerful intention to let go of fear and honor only love;

You return to LOVE by unlearning all that you have learned about yourself, about life, and about LOVE;

You let go of fear and return to love by doing your best to start living life from a place of infinite choices and possibilities – the present moment, and no longer from a place of fear and limitations – the past;

You return to LOVE by forgiving everything and everyone, yourself including and by nurturing only kind, forgiving, and loving thoughts for all those who might have hurt you in the past;

You return to LOVE by making peace with your doubts and insecurities. And by filling your heart with love, trust, and compassion towards yourself, others, and life itself.

You return to LOVE by accepting and embracing all parts of you, no matter if you perceive them as good, bad, and ugly. And by pouring your constant love onto yourself and all that you are, do, and have.

You return to LOVE by realizing that you are ENOUGH. Always have been and always will be!

You return to LOVE by taking the time to know yourself, to spoil yourself and to love yourself.

You return to LOVE by spending time outside in nature – observing, admiring, and contemplating the beauty of life…

You return to LOVE by nurturing kind and loving thoughts about yourself and about the world around you; thinking, talking, and focusing only onto that which you want to have happened in your life;

You return to LOVE by becoming aware that you are ONE with all that is, ONE with the people you love but also those you dislike; ONE with the riches that you want to have in your life but also with the poverty that is present in the world; ONE with those who are kind but also with those who are unkind; ONE with the trees, the plants, the stars, the moon and life itself;

You return to LOVE by surrendering to what is. Trusting that everything in life is happening exactly the way it should be happening. And that we all have something to learn from both the good and the bad;

You return to LOVE by expressing your love, gratitude, and appreciation for everything that comes your way – every thought, person, interaction, etc.. And by using them all to become Better, not Bitter.

You return to LOVE by understanding that you don’t have to do more of anything and you don’t have to acquire more stuff, have more friends, and make more money in order for you to feel whole, worthy, and complete.

You return to LOVE, not by getting more, having more, and doing more. But by BE-ing more of who you truly are: happy, content, peaceful, graceful, grateful, unlimited, beautiful, creative, genius, divine!

That’s how you return to LOVE.

So please, take the advice of the Sufi poet, Rumi, and stop acting so small. For you are the universe itself in ecstatic motion…

~love, Luminita💫

    I have been surfing online greater than three hours these days,
    yet I never found any fascinating article like yours.
    It is pretty price sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content
    material as you did, the web can be much more helpful than ever before.

    I love this it speaks so powerfully to everything I have felt forever my mom who raised me said I had an extra dose of love for the world and I’ve always felt called to share /teach love like that quote “if everyone ate simply, everyone would eat” quoted from LOVE SIGNS by Linda Goodman but I just am not sure how to best share ive always been the best friend i cud be to everyone that didnt believe but its my own limiting belief of myself not “having the authority” or sum other learned belief that i feel isnt right. But i just wanted to thank you for sharing!
