Of all the liars in the world,
sometimes the worst
are our own fears.
– Rudyard Kipling
What is Fear?
Fear is the an unpleasant emotion caused by the threat of danger, pain, or harm.
FEAR is a perceived as an negative emotion, however, going back to primitive ‘man’, it had a role of keeping us alive. It was an alert mechanism to any possible threat of danger, all in an effort to keep us alive by kicking in hormones to get the body ready to run or to fight back. This is known as ‘Fight or Flight’ mode and unfortunately in today’s world this alert mechanism recognises may ‘possible threats’ and kicks in. When this happens it keeps pumping stress hormones into our bodies and causing havoc with our minds and well-being.
Alas, following the pandemic and the negative reporting constantly in the media about wars, disasters and global crisis, many people are spiralling down into ‘fear’. Empaths/Highly Sensitive People, such as myself, feel this collective fear growing and it is not good for the planet and humanity. When people fear, their behaviours can become aggressive (fight mode) in an effort to protect themselves.
Things need to change
and the only thing
you can change
Don’t buy into the fear mongering media. Turn off the news and tune into your own well-being by doing things your enjoy.
For example, something I find that really helps me is to spend time in Nature. It is extremely healing and will support raising your vibrational energy, which is key for spiritual growth and development. The more you lift yourself out of the ‘fear’, the more you can work on yourself and reconnecting with your soul – this has the wonderful knock-on effect of making you feel safer and your ‘positive’ energy will ripple out to the people you connect with.
