Before I started consulting with psychics I was a very fearful person. It seemed like every little thing freaked me out and shot my anxiety sky-high. I couldn’t do anything without overthinking it to the max. I regret how many wonderful opportunities I missed out on because of fear.
Once I started getting regular psychic readings from my favorite online psychic networks that began to change. They helped me see that most of my fears were unfounded and were holding me back from life. The psychics worked with me to create a game plan for getting rid of this fear and anxiety.
They taught me that worry and fear are normal feelings, but that too much can do lots of harm. If you feel like you’re worried more often than not, this article is for you. Learning to let go of these concerns can bring more positivity into your life. It can drastically transform your day-to-day existence.
You may have lived with fear for so long that letting go of it might seem weird and uncomfortable. It’s like removing the safety blanket and dealing with what’s in front of you instead of just continuing to hide until the issue passes. It was like that for me in the beginning but I knew it had to be done.
Until you either resolve the issue or learn to stop being afraid of it, it’ll always be there posing a threat to you. When you stop being afraid of something, you’re actually letting go of the idea that the fear holds. It no longer has the power to control you and hold you back. Fear is an important feeling and does have its place in your life, but you need to know how to control it.
Here are 6 things I learned during my readings with psychics about removing fear from my life:
One of the best ways to let go of fear is to not only welcome, but also embrace the unknown. You can do this in baby steps, it doesn’t have to be an overnight change. Start by gradually introducing new things into your life that you wouldn’t normally do.
Get out of your comfort zone and expose yourself to new people, places, and ideas. Try new restaurants and taste different flavors and combinations. Listen to a different radio station in place of your preset ones. Try a style or fabric of shirt that you’ve never worn before.
These new actions can be small, they don’t need to be life changing in order to be effective. A lot of times you stick to the same foods, the same places, the same styles because you unintentionally have a negative perception about the alternatives.
You might be under the assumption that all Indian food is spicy, or that classical music is boring enough to put you to sleep. By trying different things and embracing the unknown, you’re actively releasing these negative perceptions from your mind.
Maybe you were right, maybe you absolutely cannot stand classical music. BUT maybe you were wrong and you find that it actually soothes and relaxes you!
Learn To Be Open And Generous With Your Love
Loving people means accepting them for who they are, even if they have different values and beliefs than you. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to see things from the same viewpoint as others in order for you to feel love towards them. You don’t have to understand why they do the things they do before you can love them.
It’s important to keep this in mind in a world as polarized as ours is these days. Be generous with your love and don’t be afraid to give it. You don’t know what fight everyone is fighting in their own world. A lot of the fear in the world comes from not trusting people.
When people don’t trust each other, they tend to think the worst. When you think the worst of someone, well, you tend to be afraid of them. It costs nothing to be nice to the stranger on the bus, or the cashier at the grocery store. Don’t automatically assume that everyone is out to get you and wants to hurt you.
Of course, always be vigilant of your surroundings and don’t be afraid to act if need be but don’t be too quick to shun strangers. You don’t have to love everyone the same way you love your friends and family, but you can still love them as a fellow human being. They’re trying to make the best out of this thing we call life just like you and I.
This may sound cheesy but love really is the vibration of the Universe. It’s what makes us who we are. We can either be shaped by love or by hate. Which would you prefer? Lean into that vibration and become one with it. Let it fill your body and soul.
A lot of people fear that they’ll lose themselves in the process of loving others but that simply is not true. If anything, I find that you actually GAIN more of yourself. You’ll be more at peace with who you are as a person and how you interact with others.
When you truly learn to let go of the prejudice and anger that might live inside of you towards people you don’t know, you’ll begin to feel a deep connection to the world around you. You’ll be one with all that has been, all that is, and all that will be.
Learn to forgive petty grievances or mistakes done to you, I promise you’ll feel so much better. You’ll feel full of life and not even fear will be able to hold you back. You’re basically proving fear wrong. You’re telling it that you CAN be happy despite negative things that may happen here and there.
Know The Difference Between Real Fear And Unfounded Fear
As I mentioned before, fear does have its place in your life. It’s usually there because there’s something you’re supposed to learn from it. It’s trying to tell you something. Instead of just accepting the fear without question, stop to really think about it instead. Break it down and analyze it. Listen carefully to what it’s trying to tell you.
What are you afraid of and how is this fear affecting your life? Is it telling you that you aren’t capable of things? That you aren’t worthy of love? That you don’t qualify for that position at work? Don’t just take its word for it and stop reaching higher. Write down your fears and think about each one extensively.
Really focus on them and think about why you might have those fears and how your life would look if you didn’t have them. There are basically two kinds of fear that have an affect on you. There’s the healthy kind that lets you know you’re moving way too fast for your own good.
It gives you a chance to slow down and take smaller steps towards your destination instead of taking a huge leap of faith towards it. Then there is the unhealthy kind of fear which is actually your own self-doubt and lack of confidence talking. It preys on your low self-esteem and makes you question everything about yourself.
It takes your worries and amplifies them into something bigger. These fears and worries hold you back and keep you from reaching your goals. You have to be able to identify which kind of fear you’re dealing with at the moment. If it’s self-doubt-based fear, it helps to speak to someone who can help you work your way out of it.
Psychics are experts at walking you through your feelings, emotions, thought-patterns and helping you determine which ones are unfounded. Once they’ve identified which feelings are only hurting you, they can help you work them out and get rid of them. They’ll help you replace those negative feelings with positive ones that allow you to reach your full potential.
Let Your Fears Teach You Something
I mentioned forgiving the past before, but there’s more to it than just that. Instead of pretending like the past didn’t happen or didn’t affect you, make it work for you. Only hold on to the lessons it taught you and let go of the hurt it caused. You can take something away from every wrongdoing that’s ever been done to you.
How were you supposed to know that your ex was going to cheat on you? The important thing is that they DID, and now you know the warning signs, red flags, what to look for, and how to handle it. A lot of times people think they’ve forgiven someone but they still hold on to the emotional pain.
Forgiveness can sometimes mask itself as anger wrapped in grief. Don’t force yourself to “get over it” and forgive. I find that my anger actually goes away when I give thanks and appreciate the lessons it taught me instead. Feeling grateful for overcoming hardships puts your mind in a healthier mindset than making yourself forgive.
Knowing that the difficulties you endured made you stronger and wiser makes it easier to move past the issue and stop letting it cause you pain. It may take some work to see a betrayal as a good thing so don’t be upset if it doesn’t happen overnight.
It takes a lot of mental endurance to decide you don’t only want to forgive the person but appreciate how they unknowingly elevated you to a higher level. One where you don’t dwell on what was done to you. One where you know what to look for and get a better idea of who you can and can’t trust. Forgiveness comes a lot easier once you’ve embraced the vibration of gratitude and appreciation.
Take Time To Focus On Yourself And Be Mindful
Becoming more aware and mindful is such an important part of releasing your fears. Allow yourself the time to just stop and breathe. It sounds so simple but it’s something you may not do often enough in your busy life. Taking time out for yourself is a form of self-care and you deserve it.
If you’re like most people, you’re always doing things for others and making sure everything runs smoothly for friends, family or at work. You take on an unbelievable load so that those you care about don’t have to. This is especially true if you’re a parent.
Your number one priority is caring for your children 110% but you can’t be as effective at that if you’re not taking care of yourself. No matter how busy you think you are, take some time and just pause and breathe. Read up on how to meditate and make it a point to incorporate it into your life at least once a day.
It can be first thing in the morning before you have to tend to someone else, or the last thing at night before you rest and recover from the day. If meditating isn’t for you, start an exercise routine that can be done in 30 minutes or less.
Working out doesn’t have to be hard and grueling. It can be as simple as walking, hiking, swimming, yoga or Pilates. Take some time out of your day to read a book or catch some sunlight at the park. These types of activities give you time to sit with your mind and process your feelings.
Make it a point to block out other thoughts while strolling through the park and just focus on how your body feels and how beautiful nature is. Quiet your mind as much as possible and you’ll soon see how aware you become of your thoughts. Being conscious and mindful of your thoughts gives you the power to control your mood and your actions.
You’re no longer on auto-pilot doing things out of habit and without a second thought. The more conscious you are, the more likely you are to feel a connection with the world you live in throughout the day. When you feel connected to your surroundings, you’re less afraid of everything and more likely to go with the flow.
Develop And Sharpen Your Intuition
As I mentioned earlier, a lot of times we’re scared of things because we don’t understand them. We don’t know what to expect or what it’ll make us feel like. This naturally makes us want to retreat and not engage with the unknown.
Though you may not have been born with highly developed psychic skills, I truly believe that every single one of us has the ability to enhance our psychic abilities. The best online psychics have worked most of their lives to sharpen the skills they were born with.
You may never get to that level but you can practice deepening your intuition as much as possible. This will cause you to be more grounded and not as scared of things. If you’re not sure how to even begin exploring your intuitive side, reach out to a professional psychic that has mastered it.
They can walk you through the process and advise you on what would work best for you specifically. It’s also important that you don’t ignore your current intuition and gut feelings. Sometimes fear is your body’s way of telling you something isn’t right.
It’s hard to know when it’s your mind doubting itself or your body trying to keep you from danger. This is another very important reason I suggest working on developing and expanding your intuitive skills. Once you’ve worked on them, you’ll find how much easier it is to decipher what’s what.
You’ll know if you’re overreacting about something or if something truly is dangerous. Again, a talented psychic can guide you and give you their opinion on whether your fear is valid or just a product of your imagination. While sometimes necessary, fear is an emotion that can get out of control very quickly.
It can turn you from a slightly anxious person to an anxiety ridden one afraid to even leave your house. It can make everyday tasks feel like huge obstacles. When kept unchecked, fear can grow and gather momentum without you even realizing it. It can go from being mild to a full-blown phobia.
Identify your fears, acknowledge them, embrace them, and turn them around to make them work for you. When you turn them upside down, they become part of a healthy mindset.
Learn to work with fear instead of against it and you’ll find how much easier life can get!
