Fear — fact or fiction?
by Sherry Anshara —
Much is written and discussed about the issue of fear, but what is it? Fear is often defined as false evidence that appears real. But this definition is an oxymoron. Evidence means proof, verification or facts. False means bogus, counterfeit or fake. In truth, fear is not based on evidence or fact. Fear manifests itself due to a lack of information.
The more information and facts you learn, the more knowledge you gain. With more information and facts, you will make more practical, spiritual and intelligent choices for yourself. By having the essential facts, you automatically empower yourself to create a life without the hindrance of irrational fears.
Confusion surrounding the ability to make effective choices in your life is fueled by emotional thought patterns that get in the way. These molecules of emotions, dragged to the forefront from some place in the past, trigger your irrational fears. Self-esteem issues, self-judgment and emotional attachments to past experiences cloud your decision-making processes. Do not let the past obscure how you live your life. You cannot change the past, but you can live better now.
Low self-esteem, self-judgment and lack issues, which are stored in your emotional and physical bodies, translate your personal judgments into physical problems that can become illnesses or emotional problems. Your brain kicks into gear “thinking” something is wrong with you and sends a chemical reaction throughout your body, creating a physical and emotional imbalance based on fear. Nothing feels good or right. Fear wastes your valuable time and productive creativity. No matter what you label it, fear is nonproductive and debilitating when you hold it in your consciousness.
Rumors, gossip, prejudice and hate are all symptomatic expressions of fear, which are not based on fact. Only anger, hurt and harm emanate from these emotions and outbursts. Living in fear of each other because of differences — whether ethnic, religious or a perceived belief system — is limiting. Hate-filled prejudice is simply the irrational offspring of fear. How can anyone live in true oneness if fear is the ruler?
Take on the role of a non-emotional observer and look deeply into your own fears, prejudices and differences with others. Ask yourself: Do my fears make sense; are they holding me back; do they prevent me from living my life to the fullest? If you have more questions than answers, it is definitely time to re-examine your list of fears. Figure out if these fears are really yours or if they stem from other people’s opinions or ideologies, which ultimately hinder you from living a productive and prosperous life. Ask this important question: Do my fears serve me in my life? You can bet the true, clear answer is “no.”
Get the facts, stick to them and use them in your decision-making efforts. Your life is worth more than fear molecules that prevent you from living your life to the fullest. With the right information, you will learn to make educated choices and fewer emotional, nonfactual-based decisions.
Factual information will help you expand your horizons. It will become impossible for irrational fears to influence or affect your life. The real fact here is that your life is worth it — so go out and live fearlessly.
