My Journey with Parkinson’s … A Natural Approach: Post 164 … Hardwired for fear!

deerAs I set out on my walk to the labyrinth the other morning, one question was foremost on my mind. Why is it that despite everything I’ve learned about fear, its purpose, its role in the development of neurological disorders and how to overcome it, I’m still beset by feelings of fear that leave me experiencing intense symptoms, every day?

I hadn’t walked for long when an insight popped into my mind: fear is in my nature! In other words, I’m hard wired for fear!

This was an eye-opening and reassuring insight! Even though I grew up feeling all kinds of fear [fear of being laughed at, embarrassed, hurt, beaten up, bullied, disappointing my parents, spanked, getting into trouble, people finding out how scared I was, etc.] I hadn’t thought of fear being my very nature.

As a society, we tend to see fear as a character flaw. Children who exhibit fear are teased. They’re called chicken, yellow and other demeaning adjectives. It can be humiliating and disempowering!

The concept of being hardwired for certain emotions isn’t new to me, actually. I learned several years ago that a propensity to experience specific emotions can be the result of them being embedded in our DNA. Or, as in the case with people who have been diagnosed with autism or Asbergers, because the brain has been wired in an atypical way. I watched a video several years ago on Temple Grandin, an American woman, renowned for implementing humane practices in the cattle industry, who was diagnosed with severe autism at a young age. She explained that her brain is wired in such a way that she only experiences four emotions: fear, anger, sadness and happiness. She said that her primary, dominant emotion is fear. She compared herself to a prey animal, such as a deer.

So it’s quite possible, although I can say for certain, that I am hardwired for fear, perhaps because it was necessary so that I was sure to experience fear in order to understand it and be motivated to overcome it by seeking love. I know that I’m different than my brothers who don’t seem to be affected by fear the same way I am. Either way, it is a comforting possibility.

Assuming that being fearful is my nature, what can I do to overcome it and perhaps begin to rewire my circuitry? I believe what I need to do, is accept, adapt and believe. Eckhart Tolle, author of A New Earth, says that one of the keys to happiness is accepting the present circumstances. The same holds true here. Accepting that fear is my nature brings a measure of peace of mind. I can stop fighting it, and instead, adapt to a new way of thinking of myself. Being fearful doesn’t make me less of a person. It doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with me. It’s just the way I’m experiencing life. Also, perhaps, this will help me to feel less anger, which itself would be awesome! I can also believe. I can have faith that fear maybe my nature now, but it doesn’t always have to be this way. I can overcome it. Spirit [God] wants me to overcome it in order to achieve my magnificent destiny. Whatever that may be!

Have an awesomely magnificent day!

  1. El miedo es un nivel de conciencia a ser abordado donde está, no en su expresión y extensión en el mundo -el miedo a esto, el miedo a aquello- y no tratar de controlarlo en el nivel de lo particular, sino manejarlo más bien como un nivel de conciencia. Esto se hace tomando consciencia de lo que somos, que es mayor que el miedo y aprender a dejar de identificarnos con la emoción porque no somos eso. Somos un campo global en el que el miedo está siendo experimentado. Este se convierte en una pequeña cosa que ocurre dentro del contexto más amplio en el cual nos volvemos conscientes de nosotros mismos como lo que realmente somos.
    Uno de los mayores obstáculos para gestionar y el dejar ir del miedo es el miedo al propio miedo.
    Hay una técnica que disipa el miedo al miedo. Una vez que ya no tenemos miedo al miedo, se convierte en un asunto muy simple. ¿No es el miedo al miedo el problema? Una persona que tiene miedo al miedo, al igual que la persona que va al dentista están preocupados por el dolor; ese es el temor inicial. Cuando empezamos a buscar la naturaleza del miedo, podemos ver que el número de miedos es interminable; por lo tanto, las personas se convierten en víctimas y se convencen de que el origen del miedo está fuera de ellos mismos.
    Cuando nos fijamos en el miedo, vemos lo omnipresente que puede llegar a ser.
    Las condiciones del miedo pueden ser cambiadas
    para que ya no te sientas como un pequeño ser que no tiene poder y está en el efecto al ser la víctima del propio miedo.
    El miedo puede ser como un prefijo que consigue pegarse a cualquier cosa.

    Al abordar el campo de energía del Miedo, empezamos a darnos cuenta de que el tener miedo puede unirse a cualquier cosa y a todo en nuestras vidas. No hay nada en nuestro experiencia plena como ser humano a la que el miedo no se pueda adherir. Queremos a nuestra madre, y surge el miedo de ―¿Qué pasaría si la perdiéramos?‖ Nos encanta nuestro cuerpo hasta que surge el miedo a la muerte o enfermedad. Nos encanta el dinero hasta que surge el miedo a la pérdida o el ser acusados de codiciosos. No importa lo que pensemos sobre algo, el miedo puede ser adherido a ello. Nos gusta nuestro automóvil hasta que surge el miedo a un accidente. Una persona miedosa une el miedo a todo; por lo tanto, todo lo que llega a la mente proviene de un campo de energía temeroso y por tanto se colorea de miedo. Existe incluso un miedo a la propia vida, como lo muestra la canción: ―Fraid of living and ―franid of dying – Temo vivir y temo morir‖. En otras palabras, este campo de energía ahora lo ha contaminado todo.
    Si nosotros somos el origen de ese campo de energía, entonces toda nuestra experiencia proviene del campo del miedo, y todo en nuestra vida puede convertirse en miedo. El futuro es terrible: la vejez, el envejecer, lo que va a pasar con el cuerpo, lo que va a pasar con mis finanzas, lo que va a pasar con mis relaciones, ¿qué le va a pasar a mi familia, que le va a pasar a mi cuenta bancaria, que le va a pasar a mi país, y que va a pasar al mundo?
    Las personas que desarrollan miedo global te hablarán de su miedo a la aniquilación nuclear, o las guerras intergalácticas, o meteoros, o catastróficos ―fin de los tiempos‖. La expansión del miedo no cambia el hecho de que todavía es sólo miedo. Exaltarlo y hacerlo parecer dramático no cambia el hecho de que es sólo miedo. Los miedos a la guerra intergaláctica, la demolición humana, y el fin de la raza humana no son diferentes al miedo del niño a la oscuridad o el miedo a que un perro pueda mordernos. Experimentalmente, el miedo siempre es la misma emoción.
    Característico a todos ellos es el campo de energía llamado Miedo. El Miedo a ―que‖ es en realidad inmaterial. Hemos de aprender a buscar entre los pensamientos y sentimientos. En realidad, hemos de buscar por debajo de las sensaciones el campo de energía del cual surge la sensación que se está originando y luego aprender a manejar este campo de energía. Cuando hacemos esto, perdemos nuestro miedo al miedo, y en la medida en que esto sucede, empezamos a aprender a manejar el miedo directamente. Es una cosa extremadamente sencilla de manejar una vez que estamos familiarizados con algunas técnicas fáciles.
    debemos aprender y a darnos cuenta a empezar a sentirnos realmente bien con nosotros mismos cuando nos demos cuenta de que ya no somos la víctima, el gusano que es el efecto de ese miedo omnipresente. El problema no es el miedo en sí, sino el campo de energía del miedo. Podemos empezar a ver que estamos controlándolo, porque nosotros somos el origen del mismo. Comenzamos admitiendo la verdad de que “Yo soy el origen del mi miedo”. Sabemos que en un estado de ánimo diferente, una cosa temible no es tan temible. Se podría decir acerca de lo que tememos, ―Tengo miedo de eso‖, pero cuando estamos acompañados por otra persona, o en un estado de ánimo diferente, con humor, y estamos pasando un buen rato riendo, entonces aquello ya no engendra miedo, así que el origen del miedo no está en el mundo.
    No hay manera de superar el miedo de uno al mundo, porque no hay manera de que el mundo pueda ser controlado para acabar con el miedo de uno, ni puede el miedo ser superado cambiando la sociedad, cambiando la ley, o cambiando las reglas. El origen del miedo está en el interior de uno mismo.
    Imagina un gran acontecimiento. Se dan dos aspectos -uno es el a empezar a sentirnos realmente bien con nosotros mismos cuando nos demos cuenta de que ya no somos la víctima, el gusano que es el efecto de ese miedo omnipresente. El problema no es el miedo en sí, sino el campo de energía del miedo. Podemos empezar a ver que estamos controlándolo, porque nosotros somos el origen del mismo. Comenzamos admitiendo la verdad de que “Yo soy el origen del mi miedo”. Sabemos que en un estado de ánimo diferente, una cosa temible no es tan temible. Se podría decir acerca de lo que tememos, ―Tengo miedo de eso‖, pero cuando estamos acompañados por otra persona, o en un estado de ánimo diferente, con humor, y estamos pasando un buen rato riendo, entonces aquello ya no engendra miedo, así que el origen del miedo no está en el mundo.
    No hay manera de superar el miedo de uno al mundo, porque no hay manera de que el mundo pueda ser controlado para acabar con el miedo de uno, ni puede el miedo ser superado cambiando la sociedad, cambiando la ley, o cambiando las reglas. El origen del miedo está en el interior de uno mismo.
    Imagina un gran acontecimiento. Se dan dos aspectos -uno es el acontecimiento en sí mismo, y el segundo es cómo nos sentimos al respecto. Tener más policía en el acontecimiento podría hacernos sentir mejor, pero, de hecho, ¿a dónde iba la policía en el momento en que nuestro apartamento estaba siendo robando? Al otro extremo de la ciudad, naturalmente. Por lo tanto, nuestra gestión del miedo realmente depende de nosotros mismos. Surge de nuestra propia voluntad de que nosotros somos el origen de ese miedo, el cual está ocurriendo en el interior de nuestra propia conciencia. Por lo tanto, queremos dirigirla donde verdaderamente esta siendo experimentada.
    La mayoría de la gente experimenta el miedo de alguna manera física, así que lo primero a hacer en la experiencia del miedo es eliminar el prestar ninguna atención al pensamiento. Una sensación de miedo generará literalmente, millones de pensamientos. No hay fin a los pensamientos de miedo, porque están saliendo del campo de energía del propio miedo, lo que genera una serie interminable de pensamientos. Clínicamente hablando, el control de los pensamientos específicos en sí tiene un valor limitado, y el miedo simplemente genera más pensamientos después,
    Una persona sólo puede imaginar algo temible en su vida, o algo temible que espera que suceda o haya sucedido, o sólo puede fantasear con una experiencia temible, como estar atado a las vías del ferrocarril con una locomotora acercándose a ellos. A media que observan lo que está siendo experimentado, verán cuando observan más allá del pensamiento, que está siendo experimentando por primera vez en el cuerpo. Pueden notar una tensión en los músculos del estómago, una sensación de náuseas en el estómago, temblores en brazos y piernas, o sequedad en la boca. Algunas personas tienen cólicos intestinales o dificultad para respirar. Sea lo que sea, ellos observan en su interior para ver lo que realmente se está experimentando. La verdad radical significa lo que está siendo experimentado, no lo que uno realmente está pensando sobre ello, o los conceptos que uno está proyectando sobre la experiencia; no es la etiqueta de ella sino lo que uno está literalmente experimentar en su interior,
    A medida que pasan los años, hemos acumulado la energía de este miedo. La energía tras este miedo aumenta la presión, y cuando llega a cierto punto, es como si la aguja hubiera llegado a una línea roja en el dial, y la presión de este miedo ahora empezara a expresarse. Se desborda sobre nuestra experiencia y comienza a colorearla. Si no lo examinamos, pensamos que este miedo está viniendo del mundo, y le echamos la culpa al mundo por ello. Creemos que es una experiencia espantosa pasando ahí fuera. Poco hacemos para daros cuenta que no es más que nuestro propio miedo el que está siendo proyectado al mundo.
    Entonces nos apropiamos de esta fuente de miedo, que es nuestro propio miedo acumulado. Empezamos a darle la bienvenida y esperamos la oportunidad para que este miedo salga. La liberación básica del miedo es por una gran entrega profunda.

  2. Fear is a level of consciousness to be addressed where it is not in their expression and expansion in the world-fear of this, fear aquello- and not try to control it at the level of the individual, but rather as handle a level of consciousness. This is done by becoming aware of what we are, which is greater than the fear and learn to stop identifying with the emotion because we are not that. We are a global field in which fear is being experienced. This becomes a little thing that happens within the broader context in which we become aware of ourselves as we really are.
    One of the biggest obstacles to managing and letting go of fear is the fear of fear itself.
    There is a technique that dispels the fear of fear. Once we no longer have fear of fear, it becomes a very simple matter. Not the fear of fear the problem? A person who is afraid of fear, like the person who goes to the dentist are concerned about pain; that is the initial fear. When we started looking for the nature of fear, we can see that the number of fears is endless; therefore, people become victims and are convinced that the origin of fear is out of themselves.
    When you look at the fear, we see how pervasive can become.
    The conditions of fear can be changed
    so that you no longer feel like a little being who has power and is in effect when the victim fear itself.
    Fear can be achieved as a prefix to stick to anything.

    In addressing the energy field of fear, we begin to realize that fear can join anything and everything in our lives. There is nothing in our experience as full human being to that fear can not be adhered to. We want our mother, and fear arises What would happen if we lost? ‖ We love our body until the fear of death or illness arises. We love the money until the fear of loss or being accused of greedy arises. No matter what we think about something, fear can be attached to it. We like our car until the fear of an accident arises. A fearful person joins the fear of everything; therefore, everything that comes to mind is from a fearful energy field and therefore is colored with fear. There is even a fear of life, as shown in the song: -Fraid of -franid of living and dying – fear and fear morir‖ live. In other words, this energy field now has contaminated everything.
    If we are the source of that energy field, then all our experience comes from the field of fear, and everything in our lives can become afraid. The future is terrible: old age, aging, what will happen to the body, what will happen to my finances, what will happen to my relationships, what will happen to my family, who will happen to my bank account, that will happen to my country, and what will happen to the world?
    People who develop global fear you talk about their fear of nuclear annihilation, or intergalactic wars -end, or meteors, or the tiempos‖ catastrophic. Fear expansion does not change the fact that it is still just scared. Exalt him and make it look dramatic does not change the fact that it is only fear. Fears of intergalactic war, human demolition, and the end of the human race are no different child fear of the dark or fear that a dog may bite. Experimentally, fear is always the same thrill.
    Characteristic of all is the energy field called Fear. The -que‖ Fear is actually immaterial. We must learn to look between thoughts and feelings. Actually, we have to look below the sensations the energy field which arises the feeling is originating and then learn how to handle this energy field. When we do this, we lose our fear of fear, and to the extent that this happens, we begin to learn how to handle fear directly. It is an extremely simple thing to handle once you are familiar with some simple techniques.
    we must learn and realize start to feel really good about ourselves when we realize that we are no longer the victim, the worm that is the effect of the omnipresent fear. The problem is not fear itself but the energy field of fear. We can begin to see that we are controlling it, because we are the origin. We started admitting the truth that “I am the source of my fear.” We know that in a different mood, a fearsome thing is not so scary. One could say about what we fear, I’m afraid that.‖, but when we are accompanied by another person, or in a different mood, with humor, and are having a good time laughing, then that no longer breeds fear, so the origin of fear is not in the world.
    There is no way to overcome the fear of one world, because there is no way that the world can be controlled to end the fear of one, or fear can be overcome by changing society, changing the law, or by changing the rules. The origin of fear is inside yourself.
    Imagine a big event. Two aspects, one is the start to feel really good about ourselves are when we realize that we are no longer the victim, the worm that is the effect of this pervasive fear. The problem is not fear itself but the energy field of fear. We can begin to see that we are controlling it, because we are the origin. We started admitting the truth that “I am the source of my fear.” We know that in a different mood, a fearsome thing is not so scary. One could say about what we fear, I’m afraid that.‖, but when we are accompanied by another person, or in a different mood, with humor, and are having a good time laughing, then that no longer breeds fear, so the origin of fear is not in the world.
    There is no way to overcome the fear of one world, because there is no way that the world can be controlled to end the fear of one, or fear can be overcome by changing society, changing the law, or by changing the rules. The origin of fear is inside yourself.
    Imagine a big event. Two aspects are given, one is the event itself, and the second is how we feel about it. Having more police on the event might make us feel better, but in fact, the police where he was going at the time that our apartment was being robbed? At the other end of town, of course. Therefore, our fear management really depends on ourselves. Arises from our own will that we are the source of that fear, which is happening within our own consciousness. Therefore, we want to direct it where this truly being experienced.
    Most people experience fear of any physical way, so the first thing to do in the experience of fear is to eliminate paying any attention to thought. A sense of fear generated literally millions of thoughts. There is no end to thoughts of fear, because they are leaving the energy field of fear itself, creating an endless series of thoughts. Clinically speaking, control of specific thoughts itself is of limited value, and fear simply generates more thoughts later,
    A person can only imagine something terrible in your life, or something dreadful waiting to happen or has happened, or can only fantasize about a frightening experience, as being tied to the railroad tracks with a locomotive approaching them. On average they observe what is being experienced, they will see when they look beyond thought, which is being experienced for the first time in the body. tension can be felt in the muscles of the stomach, a feeling of nausea in the stomach, arms and legs tremors, or dry mouth. Some people have intestinal colic or difficulty breathing. Whatever it is, they observe inside to see what really is experiencing. The radical really means what is being experienced, not what you really are thinking about it, or concepts that you are projecting on experience; It is not the label but it is literally what you experience inside,
    As the years pass, we have accumulated the energy of this fear. The energy behind this fear increases the pressure, and when it reaches a certain point, as if the needle had reached a red line on the dial, and the pressure of this fear now began to speak. It overflows on our experience and begins to color it. If you do not look, we think this fear is coming from the world, and we blame the world for it. We believe it is a frightening experience going on out there. Little do to give you that is nothing more than our own fear that is being projected to the world.
    Then we appropriate this source of fear, which is our own accumulated fear. We started and we hope to welcome the opportunity for this fear out. The basic freedom from fear is a deep surrender.

  3. The insane thoughts disturb. Give rise to a world in which there is no order of any kind.
    Only chaos can prevail in a world that represents chaotic thinking, and chaos is the
    Total lawlessness. I can not live in peace in a world so. I am grateful that this world
    is not real, and that I need not see it at all unless I choose to give it value. I choose not to
    give value to what is totally insane and has no meaning.
    What is totally insane engenders fear because you can not have it at all, or gives rise
    to which he has confidence. 3in dementia nothing in what you can trust. 4No offers
    security and hope. 5 But such a world is not real. I have given the illusion of reality and have suffered
    for believing in him. I choose now to stop believing in him and put my trust in reality. By choosing
    this, I will escape all the effects of the world of fear because I will be recognizing that does not exist

  4. I just found your website tonight when searching for natural Parkinson’s treatments. Wow!! Thank you for the thorough information and the bringing together of like minded people. With respect to healing your fear I highly recommend that seek the help from homeopathy. I highly recommend the Borealis Naturopathic Clinic in Newmarket Ontario. The naturopathic doctor there is Dr marina boghossian and she can give you some homeopathic remedies to help you. She helped my family member with overcoming fear. I was there today since I brought my other family member who has Parkinson’s to see if she can help him too.
