Fear can be one of the most debilitating emotions, and of course you know it’s the most non-productive. Learn to eliminate it, and you’ll lead a happier, more productive life. All things emerge from either love or fear. Everything we think and do, and all the decisions we make is either love-based, or fear-based.
Fear causes great people to accept mediocrity, and it causes procrastination.
When a person lives in fear… fear of dying, fear of losing a job or a relationship, fear of not having enough money, fear of illness or disease, and on and on… it makes us more receptive to the very things we fear. We attract the things we fear most in life by giving them thought and power. What we think about becomes our reality. You are like a magnet, and you attract all the negativethings you think about and want to avoid. If you really want to avoid the things you fear in life, then you must let go of the fears. Easier said than done, I know, but you can learn to:
Be invincible to the things you fear the most.
Most of the time I have clients come for a Reiki session filled with fear of something that may or may not have happened in their lives. Fears can be listed in one of several categories: fears that are imagined, fears that are projected or displaced, fears that are learned, and fears that are caused by a threat to our security – either physical or emotional.
Seven Steps to Conquer Your Fears:
1. Don’t let fear have time to think. Verbalize your fear so that it can be out in the open. Take the clothes off your fear and expose its true essence. You may find that your fear is unwarranted.
2. Have faith, and believe you can conquer anything. Think positive. Your body will flow in the direction of healing instead of disease, and your mind will flow toward your true desires. Realize, too, that most adverse situations don’t last forever.
3. Think only constructive, encouraging and positive thoughts about yourself. You are a beautiful creation, and the flaws that you see in yourself are usually only seen by you. Your subconscious mind doesn’t know the difference between what’s imagined and what’s real. Thinking good, healthy thoughts about yourself will sway your subconscious mind into believing it, and you’ll flow in the direction that you want to go. This is why affirmations work so well.
4. Do the things that you are afraid of doing. You’ll be stepping out of your comfort zone, but your zone will get larger and larger with every new step that you take. In no time, you’ll wonder what you were afraid of in the first place.
5. Don’t allow your feelings to control you. You can control your actions regardless of your feelings. It may not be easy, but it’s a choice – refuse to act on fearful thoughts. Remember, whatever the mind dwells on, the mind will eventually believe and act on.
6. Find the root cause and solution to your anxiety. If a fear is an ongoing anxiety that has no apparent cause, realize that it is most likely a symptom of some hidden fear. You may want to seek a professional to help you find and resolve the cause.
7. Do things that bring joy to your life. You may find that your fears resolve themselves when you make time to do the things that make you happy. Sometimes it can be as simple as that. Take care of you first.
Love, Light & Blessings to You…
