Fear is simply because you are not living with life, you are living in your mind. Your fear is always about what’s going to happen next. That means your fear is always about that which does not exist.
People are always suffering either what happened yesterday or what may happen tomorrow. So your suffering is always about that which does not exist, simply because you’re not rooted in reality, you’re always rooted in your mind. The mind is – one part of it is the memory, another part of it is imagination. Both of them are in one way imagination because both of them don’t exist right now. You’re lost in your imagination, that’s the basis of your fear. If you were rooted in reality, there would be no fear
Overcoming Your Fear:
Fear is not a product of life. Fear is a product of a hallucinatory mind. You suffer that which does not exist because you are rooted not in reality but in your mind, which is constantly eating up on the past and excreting into the future. You don’t actually know anything about future. You just take a piece of the past, apply make-up on it and think it is future.
You can plan your tomorrow but you cannot live in your tomorrow. But right now people are living in tomorrow and that is why there is fear. The only thing you can do about this is, come down to reality. If you just respond to what is there right now and not imagine something that does not exist, there is no room for fear. Once the hallucination is gone, where is fear?
Here are the 7 powerful tips to help you get over your fear:
- You Are What You Think:
To overcome your inner fears, you can start thinking the positive outcomes. By thinking on a positive track of mind, it is likely for you to develop the strength to face a situation. Don’t let your imagination get the best of you – remain positive and you are likely to stay calm.
- Fear of Death Won’t Make Death Go Away:
The possibility of dying is an inner fear that will only hold you back from living. Another practical approach to confronting your fear of death is to examine the brave people around you who are preparing for their death and leaving an example behind for others to follow.
- Expose Yourself to Your Fear:
The best way to overcome your fear is to explore yourself and find what makes you afraid the most in phases. For example, if you are afraid of spiders, then start off by looking at a spider without freaking out.
- Get Fascinated By Your Fear:
Sometimes what we fear is also something that can create feelings of exhilaration in our bodies. By seeing your fear as a positive source of energy, you are likely to embrace it and eventually overcome it.
- It’s Okay to Be Afraid:
Feeling fearful by something is just a normal human reaction. Instead of shunning or reacting badly towards it, accept it. Acceptance is the first step of overcoming your fear.
- Reward Yourself:
Overcoming a deep-rooted inner fear implies taking baby steps towards an overall recovery from it. It means that you need to celebrate each victory as it comes along the way.
- Slow Breathing is a Useful Technique:
Being faced with your innermost fear can probably cause your brain to shut down an entire body to react passively. At such times, remember: slow breathing is the short circuit for anxiety. It helps your body to calm down regardless of what your brain is causing you to think. Try counting quickly up to 7 to clear your mind and take a breath in. Breathe out by quickly, counting up to 11 in your mind. Repeat this until you are able to calm yourself which would probably take a minute or so. This is an effective way of relaxing your mind and body to overcome the situation at hand.
Don’t let your fears get you. Remember you are the BOSS and have a choice to fully manage your inner voice and thoughts.
