What we want to do is act from our creative, above the problem, problem-solving part of ourselves. Einstein said:
"No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it."
So how do we go about acting from a place that is not fear or survival based?

How to Connect with Higher Consciousness Before You Act
Do at least once/day. More as needed.
Step Number Two: Find a quiet place to be alone for a few moments. (You can even do it on your bathroom break! No excuses!)Breathe in and out 3 - 5 times.Place your hands on your heart area or stomach - wherever you 'feel' your emotions.Tune in. Ask what am I feeling? Observe like you are a teacher in a kindergarten class and each of your emotions are children. See how many you can name. Give each of them acknowledgement. No need to correct, edit or judge them. Smile and nod.
Step Number Three: With your hands still on your heart/stomach, think of something you are grateful for, something or someone that gives you that 'awe, ahh' feeling. Allow that feeling to flow in your body for a couple moments.
Step Number Four: While feeling your sense of gratitude, invite Spirit (God, Universe, Higher Consciousness, etc,) in and ask; "What do I need to know?" "What do I need to do?" And, if you wish, "How can I help?"
You may not receive anything and that is ok, but, you will notice that information you need will come to you. Trust whatever comes up. Thank yourself for taking this moment and doing this exercise.
If you are in danger, your inner warning system will give you a very clear message.
Be sure to act on any messages you receive. You are opening or maintaining a dialogue of trust between you and your inner wisdom/higher problem-solving self.
As in all times, it is important to heed 'recommendations' for your safety as well as the safety of others! Stay Safe.
