FEAR: The Mind Killer
Home Page
FEAR: something we are all familiar with; in a myriad manifestations.

Essentially, fear is our response to danger: either real, or "imagined" danger,
with Four possible means of response.

First: Fight/Face
Second: Flight/Flee/Avoid
Third: Freeze
Fourth: Faint

"Fight"
in the context of healing means to face the fear and its origin.
"Flight" in this context means to run from, or "avoid" dealing with the causes (or causes).
"Freeze" means to be so paralyzed by the fear that we are unable to think or
move - not a good situation at all.
"Faint" means exactly what it says: the reaction is s strong that the body/mind
"shuts down" and fainting occurs. This is an even worse response,
(also see
Stress introduction for more detail - as well as Anxiety).

Fear of Intimacy
(Relationship Phobia)
Freezing really isn't an option, for we may very well be in danger:
either physical, or emotional/spiritual.

Fainting, of course, while understandable, is totally unproductive and helpful.

“Fear is the path to the dark side.
Fear leads to anger.
Anger leads to hate.
Hate leads to suffering.”
~Yoda

If this is something that you need to deal with, I've provided resources here on the site
to help guide you in your healing endeavour. See below: Click/Tap icons to read . . .
"Facing/Fighting" of course, is  
the wisest choice in this context,
no matter how scary it seems,
for once we deal with the its
causes, then we've defeated it
and won't experience that one
again.


Help is available for you to do  
so, here on the site with its
resources, as well as personal
help. And there are many other
resources widely available to  
you, in many other places.

Flight or fleeing is an
understandable response - at
least, it may momentarily
allay the sense and feeling of
danger.

However, there is a caveat:
when feeling afraid, most of the
time we are in a
"from" mode,
NOT
"to" mode.

Our focus at that moment is
almost totally on getting out of
there, away from the danger;
we may have some sense of
where we're fleeing to - but  
once the fear has diminished,
we will quickly discover that
although we avoided it, we ran
in a direction whose destination
has taken us further from our
own chosen (or wished-for)
path, and while we're
momentarily safe - we have our
work cut out to get back on
track. Fear has  the power
to side-track us.
