Why Fear-Based Beliefs Are Distorted
Question from a reader:
This is a really great question topic and I’ve written a lot of material on fear-based beliefs which I’ll link here for your referral.
“Ash, I like your posts on Facebook, and just visited your site. Please explain what you mean when you refer to being a “fear-based” psychic.”
Essentially what it boils down to is, spirit tells us that love is the foundation of the universe and everything in it is made of love and there is nothing here that is not love.
When we incarnate here, though, we forget who we really are (that we are love and that everything is love) and in that forgetfulness, we have the perception that there is a lack of love. From that perception comes fear. I discuss this in detail, with visuals, in the recording of my Transcending The Ego class.
Fear-Based Belief Systems
A person lives in a fear-based belief system when they have not yet remembered who they really are and still cling to fearful beliefs and perceptions. When they have not yet realized that everything in their world is love, and the only thing that makes it appear as fear is their limited understanding of it.
Fear is not real or tangible. It is an idea that exists only in the mind and the only thing that allows it to exist there is the limited understanding of the nature of the self and the universe – that it is all love, and it can never not be love, thus it can never fear, for fear is the absence of love.
If the entire universe and everything in it is made of love, then there can never be an absence of love. Fear is an illusion.
So, that being said, everyone has a belief system and that belief system is essentially how that person perceives and interprets the world around them.
How negative or how positive that perception is will be based on the degree to which that person has come to understand the universal truth that love is all there is.
You Create What You Believe In
Every psychic is human, and thus, are subject to that same rule. They all have belief systems, too, and those belief systems affect how they see and interpret psychic information.
You see, the thing is, what you believe in, you create. That is one of the (very few) rules of the universe. When you live in a fear-based belief system, you see things that you don’t understand as being scary and fearful. You place that fearful belief on those things and then you begin to create them in that fearful image.
Let’s take evil spirits, for example. If everything in the universe is love, then there can be no evil, for evil is the absence of love (it’s fear-based). People may do evil things, because they have not yet remembered that they are love, but again, it is only their perception that there is a lack of love which drives them to act in accordance to that belief.
So, perhaps a person with a fear-based belief system comes across an entity that they perceive as negative. They then label this spirit as evil, a demon, etc. and treat it as though it is something to be feared, something that can harm you, etc. And yet all of these thing are beliefs. They BELIEVE it is evil, they BELIEVE it is something to be feared (because they are fearful, themselves) and they BELIEVE it can harm them. And what you believe in, you create.
Our Experience Is Not Objective
We often place great faith in the experience of others, or in that of ourselves. If someone who is a psychic experienced it, it must be true, right? If I experienced it, it must be true, right? But what you experience is entirely dependent on what you believe. And any experience that places you in a state of fear is a distortion of universal truth.
Love is the absolute truth. At least, that is MY belief. 🙂 It is what I choose. It is also what every spiritual teacher tells us. Duality – good vs. evil, dark vs. light – is merely an illusion for the benefit of our own spiritual growth and expansion.
Psychics Have Belief Systems, Too
So when you have a psychic reading, or you are reading something from some channeled entity, and what they are telling you places you in a state of fear – if it comes from the belief that there is good and there is evil, that there is dark and there is light, and that these forces are somehow in opposition to one another, battling it out, then you know that it is not coming from a place of oneness.
If it is coming from a dualistic viewpoint, it is coming from a perspective inside the illusion of fear.
If it were coming from a place of oneness, it would tell you that there is NOTHING to fear.
Love is all there is.

My first reaction to the reading was WOW. Your words captured a theme woven into my life right now. The reading has emboldened me to take back my power and inspired me to research some books, get back to meditating and provided a focus.Dina
