We have all, at one time or another, been faced with overcoming fear. As spiritual beings that are having a physical experience, many of our most common fears have to do with the physical body. If we find ourselves in an unsafe situation, these fears are legitimate as our bodies will react to keep us safe. But sometimes we transfer the fear response to the non-physical areas of our lives. I believe we have these non-physical, non-legitimate fears because we learned over lifetimes that the fear response would keep us safe. But we have somehow transferred this to a situation that is not really life-threatening. That does not mean that it doesn’t feel non-threatening, but from a logical standpoint, we know that it is not.
The physical response to fear includes sweating, increased heart rate and high adrenaline levels and is referred to as the “fight-or-flight” syndrome. Many people experience this from non-physical fears. Let’s take the fear of public speaking for example. No one will die or be physically harmed if we stand in front of a group of people to speak and nothing comes out of our mouths. The reaction inside of our bodies in this situation, however, is the same as if the saber-tooth tiger were in our path. But it’s important that we find ways of overcoming fear if we are to function well in this world. A psychologist’s approach to overcoming fear is to de-sensitize their clients from non-rational fears by exposing them to the fear-inducing situation a little bit at a time.
But I prefer a different approach that I think it is easier, faster and less painful. I think that you can access the frequency patterns of such fears and move through those patterns, allowing you to relax when such fears come up. Regarding the saber-tooth tiger type fears, I would suggest that you keep your reaction to those fears as it may keep you alive. Here is my method for overcoming fear:
I have found this process to be very effective in overcoming fear. I hope that it works for you. If you would like to ask me a question or send a comment, you can reach me here.
