Erasing Fear

When asked if he ever feels fear: “I feel what you feel. You name if fear. I name it call for action.”
Moretei Veshiba, Founder of Akido

As I write this article, I am reflecting on the multitude of global hardships
that are occurring on a daily basis. No matter how positive the eventual
out come, considerable confusion and pain are often a part of all
transformative journeys.

In our own country , ongoing economic upheavals continue to cause many
of us to feel increasingly insecure and frightened.


Change, especially change that is not of our choosing, has the ability to uncover and
ignite our deepest fears.

Individual and collective journeys of change and uncertainty present the
opportunity to choose: Will we take the road called Fear and allow
ourselves to b e consumed by outer and inner messages of doom and
failure? Or will we choose a different road; int o t he Quiet Mind and Healing
Heart for renewal and personal commitment to success and happiness?

We have a choice. This article is ab out being intentional in how you
choose to use your mind to best advantage.

Like you, I can be negatively affected by messages of fear and doom. If
I’m not careful, my automatic fight or flight response can and does kick
in. After all, my brain and automatic nervous system are designed to lead
me either to action or into withdrawal in response to perceived danger.
How ever, I know from past experience that taking even a few steps down
the path called Fear can quickly lead me into irrational and paralyzing
responses of anxiety, despair and hopelessness

Have you noticed that if you focus primarily on what is going wrong in life, this
perception exponentially grows, often creating a downward cycle of inner panic and a
general state of dread and anxiety?
Before you know it, life seems
overwhelming . Without knowing how to avoid walking into this mental
quicksand, you can innocently get sucked into its grip. And as you might
have noticed in your own life, being consumed by fear and anxiety can rob
you of happiness, time, energy and health.

If you are experiencing fear at the moment, know that there are definite
steps to lessen the anxiety and helplessness you may be feeling :

  1. Right now, in this instant, give yourself permission to feel the fear
    without judgment or resistance. Judging and resisting only intensifies fear, so lovingly release these reactions. Tell yourself :
    “I love myself even when I’m feeling fearful.” Accept all of your emotions as
    beautiful expressions of You.
  2. Move into the Now , which is the only place w here healing can occur.
    The past and future are no n-existent and therefore cannot provide
    healing or safety. Let go of dwelling in past regrets ( ” If only … ..‘ )
    or in future worries ( ” What if … .‘ ) . Tell yourself : “Today, I am coping
    and getting stronger.”
  3. Ask yourself : “What are the lessons of strength this fearful situation has the
    potential to teach me? “ “How can I grow and evolve by facing my fear?”
    This
    will put your fear into a different , m ore positive, perspective.
  4. Practice deep breathing, hypnosis, meditation, positive visualization
    and affirmations. As you relax, imagine a powerful light filling you
    with confidence, grace and strength.
  5. Remember a time in your life when you felt very confident and
    happy. Really feel the memory , with all of your senses, and enjoy
    the power that is intensifying with your remembering. Call upon this
    memory often and allow it to help you identify yourself as a strong,
    capable person.
  6. Shift your focus toward self-care and nurturing . Consciously take a
    break from anxious thoughts as you enjoy a massage, a body-mind-spirit healing session, a walk in nature, a warm bath, candles,aroma therapy, a healthy meal, relaxation CDs, soothing music. Feel
    all tension and stress melt and flow away.

Today, I am recommitting to my personal goal of becoming fearless. I
want a heart open to receiving joy and a mind functioning on a highly
productive and focused level.

I am choosing the road called Fearlessness. Will you join me?

Our personal choice is to expand our ability to become fearless and to
practice heart-nurturing reflection, empowering self-talk and positive
visualizations. We can choose to focus on what is going well in our lives, rather than
what is not working. In this way , we are taking charge of the neural
pathways in our brains that are continuously growing in response to our
thoughts and experiences.

By making positive internal changes, the outer world will reflect and mirror
your growth, courage and strength.

By Jim94 on May 24, 2012

"This book has really worked for me and I continue to refer back to it, for it's wisdom. You will find no magic foods or diets, only tools and training to achieve weight loss success. It took a couple of readings before I could open up and write down my feelings. Kristen gently leads you to deal with the reasons you overeat. I have lost 100 lbs and continue to keep it off with exercise and the tools in "As Thin as You Think"."
