What Are You Afraid Of?

Author: JenniferMaster1

A young man backed into a car in a parking lot causing minor damage. Rather than stay and speak with the owner, he left the scene quickly. Awhile later a police officer found him, and he had to appear in court a few days later and ended up paying a hefty fine.
So of course, the young man should have learned never to leave the scene of an accident, but why did he leave? It was most likely the feeling of fear came into play here. In fact, other feelings can be masks to the feeling of fear. Someone who is angry or even acting very enthusiastic may be trying hard to stuff down that feeling of fear.
An occasional feeling of fear is normal and expected in a life where things can be so random and unpredictable. However, reacting to normal, everyday events with feelings of fear can get us in a lot of trouble! When we experience excessive stress – whether from internal worry or external circumstances – a bodily reaction is triggered, called the “fight or flight response”. This response is hardwired into our brains and represents a genetic wisdom designed to protect us from
bodily harm.
When our fight or flight system is activated, we tend to perceive everything in our environment as a possible threat to our survival. By its very nature, the fight or flight system bypasses our rational mind – where our more well thought out beliefs exist – and moves us into “attack” mode. This state of alert causes us to perceive almost everything in
our world as a possible threat to our survival. As such, we tend to see everyone and everything as a possible enemy. Like airport security during a terrorist threat, we are on the lookout for every possible danger. We may overreact to the slightest comment. Our fear is exaggerated. Our thinking is distorted. We see everything through the filter of possible
danger. We narrow our focus to those things that can harm us. Fear becomes the lens through which we see the world.

When we enter this HPA-axis mode, (Hypothalamus, Pituitary, Adrenals), we cause a cascade of stress hormones and chemicals to flood our bodies which later manifests itself into physical symptoms and even disease. When we become stuck in this mode, the very things we fear, even though there may be no indicators they are truly a threat, can become reality because we are attracting them to us with so much negative energy.

Relationships can flounder, money can elude us, our weight issues never improve, and health issues seem to never end. We must get out of this stress mode, or mode of fear. How to do this? Meditation, yoga, tai chi, regular exercise, gratitude journals or joy lists (My life is so great because…), taking relaxing time off work, rewarding ourselves for making good efforts on our goals, massage or aromatherapy are great ways to reduce the fear factor in our lives.

One of the most affective ways to break the chain of stress and fear is to have an energy healing session. This modality can instantly change the programming in the subconscious to transform the fear factor into positive thoughts of peace, hope and tranquility and belief in ourselves and abilities. Here is a comment from a recent client.

“You are of great comfort to me and have been since the first time I called. I feel safe with you, and I trust you as a caring person. Do you remember when I first called I’d just cry and cry? I’m healing now. I’m a better mom because of the things you’ve helped me clear. I’m present in conversations and don’t hide as much anymore or pretend like things will get better tomorrow. I live in the reality of today and the goal of my family being connected and one.
Jennifer, without you I’d still be crying – I might still be laying on the floor instead of dancing around on it with the boys. I feel like you helped me unpack my heart again.”
