Positive change cannot occur without contrast. In this blog, we cover THE most important reason to overcome fear and self-doubt in 2022.
Divisiveness seems to be “key” these days, and though it is a necessary evil in locating our shadows as a collective, it doesn’t make life here on this planet any easier. So, why the stark contrasts, and how can we work to overcome the fear or self-doubt surrounding them?
A friend once asked me if chaos is necessary to make change. I was shown a sort of video play-out of the progression from zygote to fetus after conception (AKA creation). It is a complex process, really – taking two completely different puzzle pieces and morphing them into one being. Lots of dividing, lots of expanding, and lots of DNA negotiations involved in the process.
Analyzing conception from the perspective of “Creation,” it is miraculous, powerful, extraordinary, beautiful; it is something to celebrate.
Looking at it from a place of organization and structure? It’s a great excuse to run as fast as we can in the opposite direction. It’s a beautiful mess.
Metaphorically, this place of “conception” is where we are as a race right now. We are negotiating the changes that are eminent in this world and the universe. And, it is indeed a complex process, one that won’t magically resolve itself with the snap of a finger. We cannot control the rate at which this demolition and reconstruction happens. It could take years, it could take centuries. Super frustrating in our human skin.
But, the overriding question is: What can we actually control?
My favorite prayer these days is the Serenity Prayer:
Grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change
The courage to change the things I can
And the wisdom to know the difference.
Yep, we’re gaining that wisdom right now. We’re being tested. All of the tools of non-judgment, calm, serenity, compassion, etc. are now a call to action. And NOW is the best time to embody them. And, though we have no idea when this will be resolved, negative outlooks certainly don’t add a layer of hope. The more “positive torches” in this shift, the more energy from a positive potential perspective – the more these energies join forces, the faster the peace can come. In other words, don’t get sucked into the drama.

Bigger picture healing in a nutshell (and I’ve addressed this before): Covid helped us pull the weeds without realizing it. It allowed us to pinpoint who “our humans” are – the ones who stick with us through thick and thin. And/or it allowed us to hone in on what we value most because we had to go “without” the norms for so long. As we move beyond the fear factor of the virus and its seemingly debilitating (yet spiritually brilliant) effects on the human race, we can now implement more strongly the seeds we have energetically planted, not even realizing that is what we were doing the whole time! What do you want your garden to look like and even to produce?
In sum, where we are right now is not “bad.” It is necessary.
When the feelings of fear and self-doubt present themselves in your energetic field, or when you’re presented with opposing viewpoints (most likely ones that push some buttons), remember again that change cannot occur without contrast. We can’t recognize the beauty of the sun without the gift wrap of the clouds, right?
The minute we lose sight of hope and trust in a power greater than ourselves, that there is a greater reason for all of this chaos – awareness, acceptance and change for the better – we lose everything. Do not forget that the human race is not in charge here – not even close. All of this seeming disruption is temporary – and there is an outcome meant for the best interest of ALL.
Back to the original question: How do we overcome fear and self-doubt?
- Remember the only thing that is real is LOVE.
- Remind yourself that anything outside of that is a mere distraction.
- Learn to trust again, lean on and into one another.
- As best you can, shift your mindset to one of hope. “Change the way you look at things, and the things you look at change” – Wayne Dyer
So again, what is THE most important reason to overcome fear and self-doubt in 2022? CHANGE.
And folks, it will be change for the better. The power is in your and in our hands – and the more we unite, the faster the change we ALL want.
