Have you ever felt like fear was preventing you from reaching your full potential in life? If so, you are certainly not alone because fear is one of the biggest obstacles that many people face when trying to create better life circumstances and achieve their potential.

Fear has many names like dread, worry, panic, anxiety, and it manifests itself in varied ways as in avoidance, procrastination, agitation and violence. Sometimes  fear is part of the problem, sometimes fear is the problem itself. When we are really paying full attention, fear could become part of the solution.

Fear remains deeply entrenched within us; It is one of the most primitive of emotions that ensures-preservation. Fear as a physiological reaction has a definite evolutionary role, but when it outgrows this scope and becomes pathological, it can create havoc. In other words, fear could be functional or dysfunctional.

All fears emanate from the fear of death. It has been proved that chanting the manta,"OM MRTYUNJAYAYA NAMAHA" repeatedly helps one to come out of the fear of death. Fear is also due to lack of Knowledge. Fear of failure and the fear of rejection are the most common fear we learn during our childhood. These fears affect our self-esteem and come in the way of our success and happiness. Researchers say children are born without any fear excluding the fear of falling and the fear of loud noises. All other fears are mostly learned fears and hence the good news is they can be unlearned.

Be aware of fear as it arises, neither accept it nor reject. Be fully with the fear and be aware of whatever thoughts come to your mind without judging or rejecting them. Then the thoughts die down slowly. You can win over fear by being aware of it.

In their book- Liberating Touch, Ranjana & Eddie have mentioned that holding for few minutes the index finger as shown in the picture above can help in overcoming dysfunctional fear.

Dr. Hew Len suggests that our minds can only be influenced by two things: memories or inspiration. ―Memories are subconscious thoughts and old programs that continually replay in our minds, causing pain, frustration and problems. ―Inspiration comes when we erase those old memories and reconnect with our source (Divinity).
Ho'oponopono ( the Hawaiian means to cleanse) is used to erase those fearful memories and reconnect with Divinity. Not only is it a very easy process to use, it can often have far-reaching positive effects in your life.
Ho'oponopono involves the recitation of four simple phrases as you focus on your problems:
 I‟m sorry
 Please forgive me
 Thank you
 I love you
As you say these words repeatedly while focusing on the issues that are causing you to feel fear or pain, you are in essence saying to the Divine, “I take full responsibility for the appearance of these problems in my life, even if I don't know how I created them. Please clear these memories and make this situation right again. Thank you. I love you.”
Does that sound too simple? Too good to be true? Try it yourself and you‘ll probably discover what many people do: it works!
