Angels on Your Shoulder

Fear is an odd thing. It can make monsters where there are none and causes people to do unconscionable things. Fear is the basis of all judgment and a quick scan through history will show you what horrors and atrocities prejudice, judgment and fear have caused.

Fear left lurking in the recesses of our mind just continues to grow. Fear is a lot like a rotten apple causing all the surrounding apples to go bad. I have found the best way to deal with fear is counter-intuitive and makes very little sense but it works!


For years I have been suggesting this method and it has changed people’s lives. Practice it, actually do it and you will see your fear diminish and the quality of your life improved drastically.

When you have a fear about something name it, face it and then make it as big as possible. If you are worried about money imagine having none. Your bills are piling up, you have no money for food and you can’t pay the rent or your house has just been foreclosed. You have worn out your welcome at all your friends and you are homeless. You have a shopping cart and not much else. You are smelling bad, you’re tired, hungry, cold and miserable. Make the picture as miserable as possible.

Then ask  yourself if that is what you’d like to create. I assume the answer is a resounding NO. Then think about what you would like to experience and make that image as emotionally rich as possible.  Whenever the fear resurfaces repeat the process.

If you are afraid of being sick or dying alone or having an accident. Do the same thing. Whatever your fear is face it, make it huge, ask yourself if that is what you want, tell yourself clearly NO and then decide what you do want. It is amazing how quickly things change when we get really clear about what we do want.
