DAY 296: How Scared Are People?

fear

Fear and its effects on individuals and society became a subject of scientific.

Dr. Deepak Chopra and Jim Clifton in their article entitled “The Fear Factor: How Scared Are People?” say:

“Over the past decade the word “fear” has become all too familiar. After 9/11, critics of the war on terror called it fear-mongering. After the financial crash of 2008, living in a climate of fear became the lot of millions of people who lost their jobs, retirement accounts, and homes.

In the face of such violence, the prevalence of fear can have a profound effect on the health, well-being, and economic development: if a society is in a constant state of fear, it won’t produce anything good.”

Fear is everywhere. People take their first dose of daily fear with their morning coffee, while watching the news, reading the newspaper or listening to the car radio on their way to work. They start to feel the fists of fear in their guts right after brushing their teeth in the morning.

The truth is that fear sells.

It is also true that for every sad and disconcerting thing that we hear about in the news, there is a beautiful, uplifting and empowering thing that is happening somewhere in the world in the exact same time. Unfortunately, that would not sell, so the accent is put on what sells: tragedy, pain, and fear. A continuous stream of fear-creating news is bombarding us all day long.

Understanding all this gives us the option to make a choice whether to live in fear or not.

What do you choose?

DAY 295: Fear Is The Mind-Killer


zen“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.”

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.

This quote means a lot to me and it helped me release the fear of fear itself.

In the greater awareness of this powerful and calm energy, I was able face my fear and see what fear really is: non-reality, a fabrication of the mind, fed by our society, media and our beliefs.

Love,

Rucsandra

DAY 294: Dismantling Fear

no limits

Most people are consumed with fear and are devoured by it every single minute. I have lived in fear all my life until I understood what fear really is.

I want you to understand it too, and to become free of it.

Come with me on this journey, let me share with you what I have learned.

What I now know about this feared subject transformed the way I live my life, changed the very core of my being and healed me.

This is my gift to you: a series of posts on how to transcend fear, a course on how to become fearless and take your life to the next level.

Come with me. I am so excited! I love you. Thank you.

I made a commitment to myself to live FEARLESSLY and I do. This does not mean that I jump off cliffs, put myself in dangerous situations and do crazy things in order to prove to myself or others that I can overcome fear. What it means is that I do not have that knot inside my stomach everyday, from fears known and unknown; most people do. It also means that I have built  a series of skills that allow me to recognize in myself when fear starts to peak its head, so that I can free myself up immediately.

My decisions are not based on fear anymore and let me assure you: I have made many decisions throughout my life which were based on fear, because that is all I knew.

“See you” again tomorrow. Come prepared to dismantle many things you thought were true. Come prepared to start understanding how magnificent you truly are, how powerful and how fearless you are at the core of your being.

Love,

Rucsandra

DAY 291: Living From Your SOUL

spiral

Are you living your life or are you allowing yourself to be lived by life?

You see, if you believe that you are at the mercy of your surroundings, then you are “being lived” by them.

Your surroundings have only the power that you are giving them.

In every situation, regardless how challenging, trying or traumatic it might be, you have the power to choose your actions.

Living from your soul means that you show up every day with honesty, integrity, authenticity, compassion and love; without fear, without feeling like a victim, without blame or shame or guilt.

Every single moment of your life is an invitation to raise above the old, the small, and the fearful parts of you.

There is nothing that you cannot do when you live from your soul.

There is nothing to fear when you live from your soul.

There is nothing more that your SOUL desires than for you to live fully, vibrantly, as YOURSELF!

Love,

Rucsandra

DAY 250: You Are Not Your Fears

Tulips

You are not your fears. You have the power to heal. Health is your birthright.

Are you ready to clear away all your health/body related fears?

Bring out the list you created with all the things and situations you are afraid of.

Here’s something you can repeat to yourself to start this process.

“I am not my fears. It is safe for me to live without guarding and defending myself all the time. When I feel afraid, I open my heart and let the love dissolve the fear.” – Louise Hay

You can also search the Internet and find a quote that resonates with you.

Or, better yet: WRITE YOUR OWN LITANY AGAINST FEAR.

Once you have the words that work for you, repeat them over and over so that you release the fear of facing your fears.

Choose one of the fears on your list and sit with it. Feel it fully. Allow it to become as big, as strong, as frightening as it is.

Sit there. Feel it. Look at it. Allow it. Feel it FULLY. Do not pull back, do not retreat, just sit and feel it, in its full intensity.

Repeat your litany against fear over and over if you need to, but do not move. DO NOT MOVE. Breathe deeply and sit in that fear. You are strong, calm and NOTHING can make you move.

The calmer you remain, the weaker the grip your fear will have on you. And after a while, it will dissolve. Once the fear is gone, only YOU will remain.

It is this simple and YOU DO have the strength to let go of ALL YOUR FEARS.

Go through your entire list of fears. It might take you a few days, or a few weeks, but you will get it done. And once this task is complete, you will experience a sense of calm and strength inside yourself that you never knew resided there.

From this calm  and strong place inside yourself, healing can begin.

You CAN heal, but first you must let go of your fears.

Love,

Rucsandra

DAY 249: Letting Go Of Fear Feeling Like Climbing A Vertical Wall?

 

letting go of fear

Your fears might feel real to you, but they are not. Your fears do not exist, except in your mind.

“Fears are nothing more than a state of mind.” – Napoleon Hill

A state of mind can be changed. Sometimes it might be easy to do so and sometimes it might requite your time and determination. But you CAN change your state of mind and release the grips of fear.

Years back I came across a few lines in a science fiction book that helped me let go of my fears. I wrote about the “Litany Against Fear” from the novel Dune by Frank Herbert in this blog before.

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.”

You see, once you are willing to sit down with your fear and allow yourself to feel it fully, once you stop pushing it away and hiding from it, it starts to lose its power over you. As you make the decision to open yourself up to your feelings, your fear will pass through you and over you. And once it’s gone, only you will remain.

Take a look at the list of fears you made two days ago. Choose one fear that you can deal with right now. Sit down with it. Look at it. Feel it. Openly and fully. And feel it pass over you and through you until you become free of it.

You can do it!

Love,

Rucsandra

DAY 248: Show Your Fears Some Attitude!

attitude

Have you made your list? Are you ready to learn how to become fearless?

Buckle up!

The only way to deal with fear is to face it directly.

Let me say it again: the only way to deal with fear is to face it directly.

Are you afraid of how this will feel? After all, we are talking about looking your fear straight in the eye.

You might feel quite scared by this possibility. You are fearing your fears, so to speak.

But it is a lot lighter and easier than you think.

This is a great moment that will change everything!

Follow me for the next couple of posts and let me show you how to face your fears, one by one.

I am talking about feeling your fear snapping at your heels and instead of running away from it, choosing to turn around and face it fully.

You can do it.

I know you can; and I will show you how.

Love,

Rucsandra

DAY 247: Finding Your Way To Health

finding your way

In my post yesterday I invited you to put all your fears regarding your health on paper; to bring them to the surface and write them all down.

I know that looking this deeply inside yourself might be a difficult thing for you to do. I understand that there will be resistance to this process and I want to support you and help you with it, because it is important.

Until you become aware of your fears and make the effort to move beyond them, they will continue to chip away at your strength, emotional balance and your innate capacity to heal. Your fears do not allow you to heal and live a joyful life.

So, I will get you started and offer you an idea about what fears might make it to your list, in no specific order:

  • I am afraid of illness
  • I am afraid of cancer
  • I am afraid of germs
  • I am afraid that my body will not keep up
  • I am afraid that I cannot heal
  • I am afraid of physical pain
  • I am afraid of hospitals
  • I am afraid I will get sick
  • I am afraid something is not right with my body
  • I am afraid I will become bed-ridden
  • I am afraid that the quality of my life will diminish drastically
  • I am afraid my spouse will resent my illness
  • I am afraid I will not be able to do the things I love anymore
  • I am afraid to ask for help
  • I am afraid it will only get worse
  • I am afraid there is no cure for me
  • I am afraid nothing will work
  • I am afraid to try a new medication
  • I am afraid to give up my medication
  • I am afraid my joints will give out
  • I am afraid to live in my body
  • I am afraid to move my body
  • I am afraid to pay attention to my body
  • I am afraid to speak my mind
  • I fear loneliness
  • I am afraid of life in general
  • I fear death
  • I fear the death of my mother, father, spouse
  • I am afraid I’ll get sick
  • I fear emotional pain
  • I fear other people
  • I am afraid God will punish me
  • I am afraid to take a chance

Ok, you get the idea. Take from this list what is true for you and keep going. Keep going and do not stop until all your fears, great and small, are written down on paper.

Tomorrow I’ll share with you how I dealt with my list of fears.

Love,

Rucsandra

DAY 246: Awareness Helps You Heal

awareness

Make a list: write down all your fears about your well-being, health and the future.

Don’t shy away from any of them; put them down on paper. Bring them up from deep inside yourself, and allow the sheet of paper to hold them. I will show you what to do next, but first, take the time to do this.

Even if it’s scary, do it. Even if you feel like running away, do it. Even if you feel like you never want to read this blog again, do it. This is just your fears talking, trying to stop you from healing your body.

Become aware of how afraid you really are is the first step in the healing process.

So take some time, allow your fears to surface and then write them down.

Tomorrow I’ll tell you what to do with the list.

Love,

Rucsandra
