The following is a powerful technique you can use to conquer your fears...and attain your dreams.
Imagine yourself being a brave knight, complete with armor, shield, helmet, and sword (or any weapon of your choice...ex. spear, bow and arrow, etc.). In other words, “act as if” you are a brave knight (one who has fought and won countless battles). You can do this with eyes open or closed...whichever you find more comfortable.
Stand way a brave or fearless knight would stand. Breathe way a brave knight would breathe. Gaze way a brave knight would gaze. Feel yourself having same kind of resolve and determination a brave knight would have.
And in your mind's eye, focus on your target (your dream...visualize it vividly) in distance (for purpose of this article, let's just use a “golden crown” as target to symbolize your dream...when you're applying this technique on your own, visualize exactly what it is you want instead of golden crown), with such intensity, that you're absolutely sure that nothing can stop you from attaining it. Better yet, believe that it's already yours.
Imagine golden crown with a bright light around it...as if it were drawing you towards it like a magnet...as if it were saying to you, “Come claim me. I'm yours.”
Then, in your mind's eye, walk confidently and courageously towards glowing crown. (If you wish to ride a horse instead, then go right ahead. You can even fly and do all kinds of acrobatics...just like what they do in The Matrix. Use your imagination to fullest.)
And on your way to crown, imagine one fire-breathing dragon after another flying towards you...trying to stop you from reaching crown. (Include as many senses in your visualizations as possible. Hear dragons' wings flap. Hear noise they make...including sound of their breathing. See their huge, red eyes staring at you. Feel heat of their breath. And so on.)
As each dragon comes towards you, strike it with your sword. And as your sword hits each one, imagine it getting blown to smithereens—just like vampires in Buffy Vampire Slayer or Blade. (If you wish, you can make it even more graphic. It's up to you how you want to see dragons defeated...how you want to see “your fears” defeated.) Use your imagination to fullest. Don't worry, no one will know you're doing this. Remember, you're merely visualizing all of this. So just go all out.
