Lose the Fear of Losing What You Fear to Lose

CB037598Whatever you are afraid of losing in your life, close your eyes and let your imagination create a scenario in which your fear is realized. Walk yourself through that scenario in real time. Feel the sadness, the despair wash over you and through you. Then, still immersed in this dream world, emerge from your grief and move into acceptance. Feel what it feels like to live on the other side of  your fear. When you have regained your equilibrium, come back to the present . . . and know that you are forever changed.

When you have faced your fear, when you have moved through it and transcended it, the unknown is no longer your master, able to bring you to your knees with but a single thought. Your fear no longer has a death grip on you, for in your mind you have dealt with your greatest fear and its aftermath, and you have survived, wiser and stronger for the experience.

From this point on, life can only get better. As motivational pioneer Dale Carnegie observed, when we have identified and accepted the worst that can happen in a given situation, we have nothing more to lose, which automatically means that we have everything to gain. 

Fear is the cheapest room in the house. I would like to see you living in better conditions.

If fear and anxiety are getting the best of you, the Awareness Release Technique may help you reclaim your peace of mind.

    I know that I find myself in this place alot…so when I do, this piece will come to mind Phil, and I hope to go THROUGH my fear, rather than run from it next time. Thank you…

    Peace,
    Lil

  4. Phil Bolsta Says:

    Thank you, Lil. I hope these thoughts do indeed make a difference for you.

    As someone who has experienced a couple of my greatest fears firsthand and lived through them, what you don’t realize is how close God is when you are going through your fear issues. The Universe does step up to lend a helping hand and is present in a way never experienced before (at least for me). Facing your fears head on, knowing you will be helped to do so, is still daunting, but when you trust and forge ahead anyway … it is a high like no other, and it propels you down your path even further. God will be your biggest cheerleader, and that gives great comfort in and of itself.

  6. Phil Bolsta Says:

    Well said, Kim. Thank you for sharing your wisdom.

    OKAY , i have this fear of losing my imagination. Every time i encounter this fear , i re check if i have lost it. It has begun to get over me. I have kind off started arguing over inside me whether it is important , and then at times i conclude it is really not. Within a period of time , i stop my imagination from any serious work and its efficiency actually reduces OR when i use it, i have my mind arguing – ” Imagination is not necessary .dONT DO IT. NO NEED at all. STOP ” n it gets all interruupted , and things shattered. URGENT HELP.

  8. Phil Bolsta Says:

    Shampy, your fear of losing your imagination is through your imagination. In other words, you’re imagining what would happen if you lost your imagination. You couldn’t lose your imagination if you tried. It’s like trying to lose your shadow. Whether you’re aware of it or not, it’s there, and it will always be there.
