A Highly Effective Way to Remove Fears

July 9, 2020

I read something the other day that said of all things humans fear, only two fears are natural. One is the fear of falling. The other is the sound of a loud, sudden noise. I’m thinking fear of a threat to our life would go hand in hand with that. All other fears are unnatural. I focused on the validity of this statement for a few moments. The more I thought about it, the more I realized its truth. All other fears besides those that I have or you do are created by ourselves. Whether it’s a fear involving insects, people, or circumstances, I realize that any fear I have is not something I was born with and a natural part of my being. The fears were caused by my own thoughts, even if circumstances or other people caused me to think those thoughts.

The bad news is that we humans create many unnatural and unnecessary fears for ourselves. The badder news is that we allow those fears to prevent us from living life at its best, and from allowing God to use us to accomplish His will. The good news is that we are in full control. We are the ones that allowed those fears to build up in our minds, yet we are the ones that could permanently remove them and stop them from holding us back.

Some of you may be thinking that this process is easier said than done. From my own personal experience, I can tell you that is true. As much as I share about the power of the mind and liberating its life-giving powers, I still stubbornly allow fears to remain lodged in my mind more times than I care to admit. However, I have learned over time that I can deal with those fears in a two-step process: 1. acknowledge the fear instead of fighting it. 2. remove the fear and its negative effects.

So if it’s easier said than done to remove the fears, how do you ultimately do it? I’ve learned a very effective process called desensitization. I’ve been using this process since I was a teenager. It’s a complicated word, but an easy concept. To explain the process, I’m going to embarrass myself a bit with a story of how I found this process. As a child, I was never afraid of the dark, the boogeyman, monsters coming out of my closet, or any of those fears that often haunt children. I wasn’t impacted by scary movies at the time either. However, I read a book that scared me like never before. The book was called “The Amityville Horror.” The basic story is that a real-life mass-murder took place in the house. The truth of what happens afterward is disputed, but in the story, a new family moves in and is overtaken by evil spirits in the house. I found this very unnerving. Besides my proximity to Amityville (I grew up living 15 minutes from there), the spiritual concept of it seriously scared me. Now, after never being afraid of anything as a young child, at 14, I was all of a sudden petrified walking into a dark room, and that my room would be infested with evil spirits. I also dreaded waking up at 3:15 am, the time the murder occurred, and all of the bad things in the story happen.

I was embarrassed to be afraid of the dark at 14 years old. I had to do something about it, and I certainly couldn’t let anyone else know I had these childish fears (you reading this may be the first to know 🙂 ) During that summer, I was reading a self-hypnosis book that my father had. It talked about using hypnosis to desensitize ourselves of our fears. What does desensitize mean? It means to imagine yourself doing the things you are afraid of. Consistently see yourself doing those things with nothing negative happening. For my situation, I first hypnotized myself as I often did for other things even at that young age. I then visualized myself going into the dark with nothing bad happening. I reminded myself how I had been in dark rooms countless times before and had never had any reason to fear. I saw myself laying on my bed, alone in my room. Instead of evil spirits haunting me, I focused instead of how God’s presence filled the room. I saw myself waking up at 3:15 with nothing bad happening. I played this over and over in my mind until I actually believed that nothing bad would happen while being in the dark or waking up at that dreaded time. Within a week, I was cured of this fear that I had had for several weeks previous to that.

There have been numerous other fears that I have been able to cure in the same manner. I share this with you and anyone else struggling with unnatural fears. This method to remove fears works effectively. It worked for me and will work for you. The process is easy. The first thing to do is to get into a very relaxed state. Your subconscious mind (where the fear lives and needs to be removed from) is most receptive to new ideas when you are in this deeply relaxed state. I mentioned that I used self-hypnosis. Here is the process I use for self-hypnosis. You can use this or use something I often use called binaural beats. These are brainwave sounds to bring your mind to a theta or hypnotic state. You can find plenty of these on Youtube (here is the one I use) or on various phone apps. Or you can use meditation or whatever way you use most effectively to relax. Then, whatever your fear is, visualize yourself in the middle of it, and while you are there, see that the fear is not even close to being realized. For example, if you are afraid to speak in front of people, see yourself speaking in front of a large crowd. Instead of bad things happening, see the people listening attentively to what you have to say. Hear them applauding you. If you are afraid of traveling on an airplane, see yourself enjoying the comfortable flight and arriving safely at your destination. These are just a few examples. You can use this desensitization method to remove any fear, no matter how big or small it may be.

I read another message recently that says that the way to conquer your fears is to do what you fear. In essence, you are doing that with this process. The subconscious mind cannot tell the difference between a real or imagined event. It takes this mentally visualized event as real as if it were actually happening. Of course, if you have the opportunity to follow the above advice and actually, physically do what you fear then take that opportunity. This combination of mental visualization and physical action will remove the fear quickly. My story above proves that. Some fears may take a bit longer to disappear, especially if they deeply embedded in the subconscious. However, if you stick with this process, they will gradually be removed.

You don’t have to live with unnatural, unnecessary fear. Use this simple method to remove those fears. Then see how free you are to live out your dreams and accomplish God’s will for your life. Enjoy the blessings 🙂


I’m Having Brain Surgery

February 13, 2015

I very much appreciate your concern. I will admit that I am not getting real brain surgery, and I’m totally OK. Instead, I am going through the major process of purging negative thoughts and removing the blocks that are holding me back from living the ultimate life I am meant to live.

It’s like that for everyone. Many of us have mental blocks that hold us back. Those blocks are formed from various memories from earlier parts of our life. Unfortunately they cause us to believe we can’t accomplish our goals. We feel like we’re not good enough, not worthy, we are meant to be overweight and unhealthy, we’ll never make enough money, we’ll never find the ideal partner. It’s all because of these negative beliefs that have been engrained into our minds.

The key is to remove those blocks. Now please don’t go out and sign up for the next brain surgery appointment. Instead, do your own brain surgery. You can indeed remove those blocks that are holding you back from realizing your dreams. How? There are several ways you can do it. One is through displacement. You continually visualize positive scenes of what you desire. See it happening and feel the positive emotions of having what you want. The more you do this, the more your subconscious (which can’t tell the difference between a real or imagined event) believes it and you replace the negative thoughts that hold you back with positive empowering ones.

Another way I’ve used, especially lately, is hypnosis. This is the most powerful and effective way to remove limiting beliefs. I have used it to remove fears, develop confidence, and even heal injuries, and it has worked in every case. The key is to get yourself in a very relaxed state and get deep into your mind to figure out exactly what is holding you back, and replace those negative thoughts with positive ones.

I have learned to do self-hypnosis over the years. However, if you don’t believe you can hypnotize yourself, there are many resources that can help you:

  • Binaural Beats – These are available online or even on your smartphone. Binaural beats are used to put your mind in a state to either relax you or stimulate you depending on what you want to accomplish. For hypnosis they put your mind in a state that connects you with your subconscious mind and helps you accept new ideas easier. I use an app called Binaural Beats therapy beta by Giorgio Regni. I like this one because, besides the fact that it works, you can choose the situation you desire and it provides the matching beats.
  • Joseph Clough Complete Confidence course – I have been utilizing the services of this hypnotist often lately, and it is changing my life by the day. In part 3 of his 11 part confidence course, he has a powerful hypnosis which is the best I’ve ever used for “surgically” removing negative blocks and replacing them with empowering and faithful ones. I recommend you listen to this program. The hypnosis starts about halfway through it. You can access this and the entire course with the Joseph Clough smartphone app.

These are just some ways you can get started in performing your own brain surgery to remove unwanted thoughts and beliefs. If you want to go even further, I recommend this course by Joseph Clough to remove these beliefs even quicker, and move you towards your dream life much sooner than later.
