When I felt this fear, I felt shrunken, condensed, and bound.

9 "The universe is a great system of vibrations we draw to us by our feelings: fear draws fear, love draws love." Lynne Sharon Schwartz, novelist, 'Fatigue Artist' Spiritual Literacy, Reading the Sacred in Everyday Life (Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat)

22 "There are only two core emotions: love and fear. And love is to fear as light is to darkness; in the presence of one, the other disappears. As we shift our perceptions from fear to love – sometimes in cases where it's not so hard and ultimately in cases where it takes spiritual mastery to do so – we become miracle workers in the truest sense. For when our minds are surrendered to love, they are surrendered to a higher power. And from that, all miracles follow." The Gift of Change, Spiritual Guidance for a Radically New Life (Marianne Williamson)
