Fear is an emotion that affects millions of people in France and around the world. But I do speak of irrational fears that have no place.
Indeed, there are two types of fears. First, you have the so-called normal fear, which is a reaction to real danger, a really dangerous situation where your life is really endangered … And second, you have all the so-called abnormal fears, which are a reaction of fear irrational panic, but this time facing an unreal danger, a situation that poses NO real threat to your life.
For example, if you are in the middle of the forest, and you come face to face with a group of wolves or a bear, you will obviously be afraid. The adrenaline released at this precise moment will allow you to flee as quickly as possible and believe me, you will surely run faster than Usain Bolt, the fastest Jamaican athlete in the world!
But if you are trembling because you have to speak in front of several people, if you are afraid because you are flying, if you are anxious and panicked at the thought of taking the elevator or even approaching a stranger you like on the street, you are unfortunately trapped in abnormal and irrational fears, because these situations do not pose any real danger to your life.
A 3-step formula to conquer your phobias:
Below is a 3-step foolproof method that will allow you to understand how to overcome the fear and phobias that block you in your life, and this definitely, forever.
1) Identify irrational fear
First, identify your abnormal fear, your irrational phobia, by simply asking yourself the question: what am I afraid of? what is the specific situation that scares me? what triggers panic fear, a phobic disorder that generates really uncomfortable negative emotions.
It will vary from person to person. It can be the fear of judgment of others, the fear of public speaking, the social phobia which is a form of sickly shyness, the phobia of confined spaces (claustrophobia) like elevators or cinemas, in short to you to determine clearly the situation that generates an anxiety attack.
2) Identify and observe physical emotions
Once your particular phobia is highlighted, you must now identify the physical symptoms, ie the negative emotions that your panic fear generates in your body. It can be the throat tightening, intense palpitations, a lump in the belly, excessive sweating or a feeling of dizziness …
No matter which oppressive emotions, you must identify them, but above all observe them in your body. This step is essential to allow your pent-up emotions to drain completely. Indeed, the awareness of emotions in the body is the necessary passage to allow your emotions to drain completely. By evacuating and expressing your emotions, you are evacuating your irrational fears at the same time.
3) Clean the unconscious reptilian brain
What you absolutely need to understand is that all of your fears are taking root in your unconscious reptilian brain. Body awareness actually connects to that unconscious brain because your animal reptilian brain is connected to your body.
Becoming aware of the body to free itself from negative emotions is the first step. But you must not stop there, and you must go and purge your unconscious of all your fears that annoy you on a daily basis.
How to overcome fear and phobia?
Identify, become aware of the body, and cleanse the reptilian brain, here are the 3 essential steps to free yourself from your fears and overcome your irrational phobias. But this process is only the beginning on the path to your emotional release. If you really want to relieve yourself of your emotional blockages (fears, phobias, anxieties), you will have to start an emotional cleansing deep in your unconscious brain. And to do this, there are very powerful techniques.
Breathing exercise to overcome fear
When you know that fears take root in the reptilian brain, but that the reptilian brain also manages your respiratory rate, the magic of breathing appears! You just have to manipulate your breathing correctly to appease your reptilian brain but above all to tell him to vent all of his unconscious and irrational fears. It is also one of the side effects of practicing Intermittent Breathing.
You can practice now by ordering the method where you can find out the theory of this method. As I told you, to manipulate your breathing is to control your reptilian brain and therefore all your fears. This is why breathing is the pillar of all training in stress management or emotional release.
Some fears are just a product of our abnormal thoughts and maybe the result of our abnormal upbringing and must not be taken seriously. Such fears can be overcome by grounding yourself and being present in your body. A full concentration on the present situation and calming your monkey mind is the key to overcome and conquer your unwanted fears and handle the situations properly and with full control. So, from now onwards, whenever your unwanted fears pop up, just remember, “Fear is just a word.”
