365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 34: Beyond Fear Part 2 – Litany Against Fear


In the first gratitude post entitled Gaia I shared with you that I used to love science-fiction; I still do. About 20 years ago I came across the “Litany against Fear” in the novel Dune by Frank Herbert. I used it many times, found it powerful and felt its clearing and healing effects. Here it is:

“I must not fear.

Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.

I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.

And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.

Only I will remain.”

This quote means a lot to me and I am very grateful for having found it; it helped me release the fear of fear itself. Whenever I got ready to face one of my fears, I repeated these words to myself until I felt a great calm energy surrounding me. From this protected space, I turned around and faced my fears, one by one. In the greater awareness of this powerful and calm energy, I was able to see my fears for what they were: inflated balloons, created by society, family or myself.

I realized that I was one with LIFE and I started to TRUST myself and the process of LIFE. By facing and letting go of one fear at a time, I started to feel a lot stronger. I felt protected and supported by myself and by the Universe.

There is so much I want to share with you and will keep writing for many days about fear and how I started to live fearlessly. I am just getting started on the fear issue and I want you to know that what I will share with you will change your life. I want you to completely release all your fears. Follow me.

So until tomorrow, here is my invitation to you: sit quietly and breathe for a few minutes. Read the Litany Against Fear as many times as you need until you start to grasp its depth and its calming, soothing power.
