As someone who has been training in the field of self-development for over a decade - I've come to realize that the number one reason why most of my clients were not living the life of their dreams was simply because of fear.
I can relate, I know what it feels like to have fear in my own life. One of my biggest fears was speaking in front of others. My palms would get sweaty, my voice would shake and I'd often forget what I was going to say. I hated this feeling and fortunately I was able to release my fears using the tools and techniques in this course.
Let's begin this course with a opening grounding meditation session. Simply allow yourself to get into a comfortable position and press the play button below to get started.
Welcome back :)
Imagine you’re home alone in the middle of the night when you hear a sound somewhere in the house. You lie in bed trying to figure out what that could be. Maybe someone has broken into your house. Your stomach knots up, your palms are sweaty, your breath is shallow, your heart is pounding.
You’re on the high cliff overlooking the ocean ready for your first cliff dive. The water looks very far away. Your stomach tightens, your palms are clammy, your breathing quickens, your heart is pounding.
You’ve cleaned the house and cooked dinner for a wonderful person that you’ve met recently. Perhaps the person you’ve been waiting for all your life. As you make the final check of the house, the meal and your appearance...
Your stomach knots up, your palms are sweaty, your breath is shallow, your heart is racing.
Three very different situations...
First, a burglar in your house which might be life threatening.
Second, a physical activity that you’ve chosen and perhaps paid money to get to this location.
Third, an emotional experience that you’ve dreamed of.
Different situations but the physiological response is almost identical. It’s how we think and feel about the situation that determines the label we place on the experience. We use the label “terror” for the potential break in, “excitement” for the romantic evening and “exhilaration or thrill” for the jump off the cliff.
The sensations themselves are not the problem. It’s the meaning that we attach to the sensations that cause the problem. When, really, they don’t mean anything at all. But because we feel threatened we believe that something terrible might happen, something that we won’t be able to handle and our imagination takes over and suddenly we think that we might die.
I think the feeling of being safe ended on Sept. 11, 2001.
Not for everyone, certainly. I saw it as a turning point for the human race.
Then there was a major downturn, as they call it, in the economy. People have lost their jobs, their homes, their retirement, their sense of security. Of course they’re full of fear. Who wouldn’t be? But, long term, something has to change internally before we will see the external change that we so desperately seek.
Let’s talk about some of the fears that “happen” outside of our control.
Fears that “happen”
• Loss of financial security
There’s an excellent book by Susan Jeffers, PhD. called Feel the Fear & Do It Anyway. Can we just “do it anyway”? Or do we need tools to break through what is becoming the norm? I say that we need tools. Don’t you feel better when you can “do” something to correct whatever isn’t working?
The problem is not knowing what to do. In this course I’ll teach you some tools to use so that you can move yourself out of fear when you need to.
Tool #1 Set your day up with a positive focus.
Angeles Arrien, Ph. D., author of The Four Fold Way and Signs of Life, developed a series of simple questions for a workshop that changed the way people began to view their lives. She suggested keeping a daily journal in which, as night falls, you look back on your day and answer these questions:
• What surprised you today?
• What moved you?
• What inspired you?
The interesting phenomenon occurs not when we answer the questions, but when we start our day expecting that we will have to answer them as evening
comes. Knowing that we’ll have to answer these questions starts the process of looking at the world in these terms. This process keeps us focused on our good
rather than on our fears.
Tool #2 - Use your subconscious mind to maintain a positive focus.
Meditation/self hypnosis/mantras or affirmations
Both meditation and self hypnosis, practiced daily, help by releasing chemicals that calm us. Repeating a mantra or affirmation helps calm the mind, keeping it focused on something positive rather than running rampant with fear.
One of my favorites is, “This too shall pass.” Write a list of your own affirmations.
Here are some examples to get you going:
• I am powerful and I am loving
• I know that I will get a job
• Life’s an adventure
• I am empowered and make good choices
• It’s an opportunity
• It's a learning experience
Now create a list of your own affirmations.
The following Guided Visualization is on choosing life affirming thoughts on a regular basis. Allow yourself to get into a comfortable position and press play when you're ready to begin.
Great job today! Tomorrow we’ll talk more about the types of fears that trip us up and I’ll give you a new tool to deal with them. Your assignment is to read your personal list of suggestions right before you go to sleep at night and answer those 3 questions in a journal.
