How successful people beat fear.
The first thing to realize is that Fear is all in mind. We are a product of our perception of reality. Why is it that some people faint at sight of a cockroach and others consider it a delicacy and eat it?
How is it that we see people being cured of their phobias in a matter of hours? I mean it took an entire lifetime to build that fear and people can be rid of it in an hour or two?
Consider circumstances of fear. Why is it that a person will do something, in a moment of instinctively protecting a loved one that they would never even contemplate in cold light of day?
The reason for all of these 'miracles' is that automatic pattern of our fear is overridden either by a stronger instinct or by conscious reasoning. Therefore we see that we CAN overcome our fears!
It is a matter of breaking down different components of your fear, into bite size chunks (excuse pun).
-Feel emotional response to your fear. In other words, feel your heart pounding, your stomach churning, your hair standing on end and concentrate on physical feeling. It is said that body cannot experience emotional feelings of fear while concentrating on physical effects.
-Concentrate on reversing physical events. Calm your heartbeat, watch your hairs lie back down and relax your screwed up stomach.
-Imagine how being that is instilling fright, is feeling (if applicable) and why they are reacting this way. The youth may be starving and just want something to eat; snake may be completely out of its environment and lost and scared; cat may be protecting its young.
