It's also helpful for those of us not channeling entities.
Angela, I've been doing more thinking about your posts. The idea of "I'm unsafe" has been floating around as a possible belief for me for a while, but I think your post and exercise confirmed it. If I believe I'm unsafe, then I (subconsciously) react to it with fear: "OMG! I'm not safe! S**t! I'm not safe! I'll never be safe!! I'm doomed!!" So if I'm reacting to that belief with that fear, that fear manifests as situations to make me fearful and confirm I'm not safe.
Another safety issue that wasn't brought up by your exercise, but by something else I thought about a few months ago is that I tend to lose things I like. Not as in misplacing, but as in opportunities wasted and missed, a job I'm sure to get suddenly being canceled, money promised to me suddenly disappearing, etc. I think part of the "unsafe" feeling stems from that and from many childhood experiences of people stealing from me (kids in the playground at school ran up and stole my lunch out of my hands once; another time, a "friend" tricked me out of my money when I was 5; etc.). So maybe I feel like if I have things, people will take them and I'll lose them, so it's safer not to have things.
It's possible this feeling has been trying to get resolved for a while and is getting seemingly worse because it's becoming more intense in its bid for attention. I don't really know if it's just plain vanilla resistance to being changed. I get the sense it's been trying to get my attention.
So. "I'm safe" seems to be a big winner today. Thank you.
