Letting Fear Move Through You

By Trish Regan

Fear forms the basis of most of the angry emotions that are expressed by human beings. Oftentimes we ignore or try to avoid the passionate emotions of others for fear of being drawn in. It can be that very avoidance that can allow their strong feelings to wash over us and enter into our field of energy. If we pay attention to their expression of fear and anger, without judgement; if we serve them by compassionately listening to them with an open heart, then we can consciously see the separation of our feelings and theirs, hence, peaceful co-existence can be possible.

We have been swimming with wild dolphins for many years here in Hawaii. We believe that the dolphins and their energy of pure love assist humanity to rise to a higher consciousness, awaken our deepest capacity for joy and heal us on many levels. Some people, who have not had the opportunity to be in the ocean with the dolphins believe that swimming with them is harassment. They have not had the experience of being welcomed right into the dolphin pods.

I would like to share a wondrous story about dolphins and compassion which demonstrates the power of open-hearted communication and the possibility of letting fear move through you. My husband, Doug and I, in our spiritual work with the dolphins, learned about the Purple Ray of Compassion. This is a very high energy of pure compassion that can heal and bring peace to the world.

One morning at seven sharp I was awakened with an irresistible message to find the dolphins! In a small bay near our home I found about eighty dolphins circling in the small deep area, close to shore, where they often visited. Slipping quietly into the water, very soon I found myself surrounded by these beautiful beings. I soon received the message that they had invited me there in order to allow them to help me to send the Purple Ray of Compassion to the world.

I proceeded to consciously transmit this compassion to all the areas of the world that were experiencing strife. Energetically I went to Israel and “saw” a Palestinian and a Jew hugging each other and absorbing the Purple Ray, experiencing deep forgiveness and compassion for each other. Next I found myself in Africa, Northern Ireland, and so on, sharing the purple ray and “seeing” compassion bringing about deep healing.

During the next hour and half as the dolphins and I extended this energy, I grew to experience a state of pure love. As I swam and transmitted the energy to the world I could feel the hearts of those in conflict opening to this sublime compassion, to this understanding and love as they hugged each other. It was bliss! I was in a state of pure Love or Agape.

Suddenly, after being this way with the dolphins for what seemed to be eternity, I looked up and encountered an angry woman in a kayak next to me. She was screaming and cursing at me and commanding me to “leave the dolphins alone!” She shouted at me that I was harassing the dolphins. Her tirade continued but my state of being was of such love and bliss I allowed her anger to just flow right through me. Feeling compassion for her and being in my personal power on such a high level, I opened my heart to her and shared that I truly felt I was not harassing the dolphins in any way and wished them no harm. Being careful to avoid defending myself or arguing with this angry woman, I simply explained softly my intention to help the world. Her shouting and swearing continued. I told her of my intention to experience the healing of these gentle creatures and that they came to me and swam under me and all around me . . . I hardly swam at all. She did not want to hear any of this. I explained that I subscribe to the widely held belief that the dolphins are here to heal the world. She couldn’t take it in or really “hear” me, and left in a huff.

Turning to see where the dolphins were, I noticed that they had removed themselves from this situation and had moved to the other end of the bay. The work was done anyway, I thought, and I wished to avoid causing these people more distress, so I turned to make my way back to shore. On my swim back I saw this woman’s husband waiting for me on the lava. He, too, was agitated and began to curse me with much of the same energy. By now there had gathered other swimmers who were sitting very close to my place of entry. Normally I would have swam two miles to avoid this confrontation, but being in such a pure state of love, I courageously stepped out of the water with this irate man awaiting me there.

He came right up to me, glared directly into my eyes, and continued spewing his wrath at me with ferocious force. As I stood there and listened to him without resistance (my state of pure love intact), I could see in his eyes his genuine concern for the dolphins. I “granted him beingness.” I felt as though I could see into his soul and thought to myself, “I really like him as a brother, a fellow traveler on this sometime rocky path of life.” Again, as I maintained eye contact with him, I gently explained my deep belief in the dolphins’ healing powers and my earnest intention never to harm them.

As my message began to sink in (or maybe it was simply the Purple Ray), he began to soften. Since I was in such a vulnerable and exquisitely spiritual space, I suddenly began to cry. It hit me that this was a perfect metaphor for war... two different belief systems held within the hearts of human beings who are innately “the same.” As I melted into this understanding, he “got” it too and his demeanor completely changed. He came over closer to me, put his hand on my shoulder and said to me, “I can tell that you are a good person, and I shouldn’t talk to anyone like that . . . I’m sorry.” This opened the avenue for conversation. From then on we were able to communicate and learn about each of our concerns. His wife came over too and she too entered into rational conversation until we all understood each other and entered into peaceful co-existence.

I learned first hand that I could let others’ fears flow through me and avoid taking on their fear by standing in my personal power, truth and love. I did not have to fight, and my compassionate listening served a peaceful coming together in a potentially volatile situation. You can do this too by being aware of others’ needs to vent their fear and anger at times, without taking it into your own being. Taking personally someone’s need to express leads to entanglement and absorption of their fears. Standing in love and compassion is the power.
