Clearing our Perceptive Lens


We’re fine, really we are fine. Many of us take for granted that at any moment we have our best thinking at the ready.

Some of us might feel quite nervous and upset at times, even triggered into being quite afraid. In that eventuality we certainly are not assessing at our most astute. Here is what one woman noticed:

Beatie’s Story: Setting the Scene

Beatie started having computer troubles. Fortunately it was still working for the functions she wanted it to perform. Promptly via email this star contacted a tech friend. To him she explained that the machine’s battery was draining while plugged into the wall.

Together they brainstormed, checked obvious solutions, like were all the plugs sound, and did not come up with a corrective strategy.

As Beatie checked her battery level every hour for that day, she filled with trepidation. Her mind raced through possibilities and consequences: was she going to need a new computer? The worst was losing her rich, loaded programs and files stored on her device.

After the whole day addressing this situation, B chatted on the phone with a friend. B realized, “I felt scared, and then I ran a string of fear thinking. Wait a minute I am seeing through the lens of fear! I want to shift this now.”

Insight Comes

The next morning Beatie descended the stairs to deal with the computer. First of all, she opened and started using it right away. The battery level registered 10%.

However, B felt calm and remembered the Forces of Good accompanied her. From that space Beatie saw that the danger of losing her files was highly unlikely—and that trained technicians knew how to get to the important programs and files overriding the battery.

This heroine had scared herself with her own fear laced thoughts.

“Wow I want to notice how this works. I can save myself a lot of upset when I realize that I am too wound up to evaluate ‘worst scenarios’ I can make it seem much worse than it is.

I would rather turn to Faith and knowing the big picture of my safety is secured.”

Instead of plowing ahead in this mentality, we can distract ourselves with another loved pursuit (suduko, anyone? Taking a walk. Work on the boat out back…) Then swing back around when happy again and clear minded.

We marshal so much more personal power when we remember this!


Four days into the computer blip, Beatie had found out what fried her battery and knew her files were not threatened. At the repair shop, B learned that the third prong of the machine’s plug had broken off and when faulty, damaged the battery. A new battery was ordered for her. All was basically well.
