Fear weakens us. It invites stress and illness into our lives.
It silently affects every aspect of our lives – our
health, relationships, even our finances. So how do we overcome
this fear? How do we attract health, happiness, and peace
of mind? There are a number of ways. First, you can simply
observe the sensations in your body when fear arises. When
your heart races, your chest tightens, the adrenaline pumps,
and the butterflies flutter in your stomach, be with all of
these sensations. Observe the unpleasant sensations caused
by fear, go deeply to them, and they will dissolve. Every
emotion in the mind has a corresponding sensation in the body.
So when we observe sensations in the body, we released them,
and our mind becomes clear.
powerful weapon against fear is to realize that you belong.
You belong to God, to the universe or some power. Find comfort
in the fact that God is taking care of you. He is taking
care of all your concerns and worries. God is right there
behind you one hundred percent. You are not separate from
God. You are part of God. He is looking after you in the
same way that a mother looks after her child – with
See the impermanence in everything. Everything is changing
within you and around you. The world is constantly changing.
You are not the same person you were last year. Emotions
come and emotions go. When fear arises, know that the intensity
of the fear is always changing and that it will soon subside
It is not possible for the dark cloud of fear to permanently
obscure the sun, which is the joy and love within you. All
clouds move on. A great strength comes to us when we see
everything as impermanent.
We can empower ourselves even more by simply letting go.
Fear is clinging onto something, holding on, and not letting
go. But what can you hold onto in this life? Nothing. It’s
all flowing, dissolving, and growing. Life moves like a
movie. You cannot stop the movie and hold onto any one frame.
Let go and let God. Let go and the shackles off fear and
worry will fall from you.
Yet another trick to overcome fear is to realize that you
only have the present moment. Right now is all that exists!
We are anxious about the future. We torture ourselves with
disturbing thoughts of what will happen tomorrow, next week,
or next year. But these are only imaginings, nasty tricks
played by our minds. Live in the present moment. Meditate,
and dive into the profound, healing present moment.
creates a physiological imbalance in our bodies and we feel
stressed. If we are stressed over a long period, we soon
begin to suffer from a certain type of disease. And the
fear of having a serious illness makes us feel even more
anxious, which exacerbates our health. A downward spiral
of fear soon brings us despair and misery.
But, with a little courage, we can spiral back up to good
health. Above are a few powerful ways of achieving this
and I encourage you to try them in your daily life. You
will feel lighter, have more energy, and be happier!
So, why do we suddenly feel so much better after applying
the principles above? The reason is that we are attending
to the very source of the mind, which is pure consciousness,
pure love, and love is the highest healer on the planet.
Love is not an emotion – it is your very existence.
An infinite ocean of love exists within you.
By applying the ancient wisdom above in your life, you
bathe your mind and body in this vast healing ocean within,
cleansing yourself of fear, stress, and illness. You quickly
find relief, feeling calm and refreshed.
Compassion for others suffering led me to write, Heal Thyself,
a 242 page, poetic sharing of how to create a fulfilling
life. In this book, I show you how vibrant health is possible.
We need to take a closer look at our own life. Stress and
health problems can be overcome. Greater happiness, enthusiasm
for life, and peace of mind can be experienced. With an
understanding of ancient wisdom, life loses its seriousness
and becomes a fun game to play.
Wishing you health and joy,
