—Excerpt from Ian's book, Heal Thyself
First, you can simply observe the sensations in your body when fear arises. When your heart races, your chest tightens, the adrenaline pumps, and the butterflies flutter in your stomach, be with all of these sensations. Observe the sensations caused by fear, go deeply into them and they will dissolve. Every emotion in the mind has a corresponding sensation in the body. So when we observe sensations in the body, we release them and our mind becomes clear.
Another powerful weapon against fear is to realize that you belong. You belong to God, to the universe, or some power. Find comfort in the fact that God is taking care of you. He is taking care of all your concerns and worries. God is right there behind you one hundred percent. You are not separate from God. You are part of God. He is looking after you in the same way that a mother looks after her child - with total love.
See the impermanence in everything. Everything is changing within you and around you. The world is constantly changing. You are not the same person you were last year. Emotions come and emotions go. When fear arises, know that the intensity of the fear is always changing and that it will soon subside and disappear. It is not possible for the dark cloud of fear to permanently obscure the sun, which is the joy and love within you. All clouds move on. A great strength comes to us when we see everything as impermanent.
We can empower ourselves even more by simply letting go. Fear is clinging onto something, holding on and not letting go. But what can you hold on to in this life? Nothing. It's all flowing, dissolving and growing. Life moves like a movie. You cannot stop the movie and hold onto any one frame. Let go and let God. Let go and the shackles of fear and worry will fall from you.
Yet another trick to overcome fear is to realize that you only have the present moment. Right now is all that exists! We are anxious about the future. We torture ourselves with disturbing thoughts of what will happen tomorrow, next week, or next year. But these are only imaginings, nasty tricks played by our minds. Live in the present moment. Meditate and dive into the profound, healing present moment.
Fear creates a physiological imbalance in our bodies and we feel stressed. If we are stressed over a long period, we soon begin to suffer from a certain type of disease. And the fear of having a serious illness makes us feel even more anxious, which exacerbates our health. A downward spiral of fear soon brings us despair and misery.But, with a little courage, we can spiral back up to good health. Above are a few powerful ways of achieving this and I encourage you to try them in your daily life. You will feel lighter, have more energy and be happier!
So, why do we suddenly feel so much better after applying the principles above? The reason is that we are attending to the very source of the mind, which is pure consciousness, pure love, and love is the highest healer on the planet. Love is not an emotion - it is your very existence. An infinite ocean of love exists within you. By applying the ancient wisdom above in your life, you bathe your mind and body in this vast healing ocean within, cleansing yourself of fear, stress, and illness. You quickly find relief, feeling calm and refreshed.
For the past thirteen years, I have studied profound knowledge from the world's highest authorities and applied it to overcome severe anxiety, depression, and arthritic pain. Today, thanks to this knowledge, I experience abundant energy, joy, clarity, and peace of mind. And I continue to attract loving relationships and experience great personal success!
