WHAT IS FEAR?

Sylvia Marina - Tuesday, June 22, 2010

WHAT IS FEAR?

WHAT IS FEAR? 
Written by Sylvia Marina, Personal Development Mentor.

Fear is a chain reaction in the brain that starts with a stressful stimulus and ends with the release of chemicals that causes your heart to race, fast breathing and energized muscles, also known as the fight-or-flight response. The stimulus could be the branch of a tree scraping a window on a stormy night, the sudden thud of a door against the door frame. The incitement may be a shadow that looked like a mouse – perhaps it was a mouse, a spider, an auditorium full of people waiting for you to speak.

If we didn’t have the capacity to be afraid we wouldn't survive for long. We would be walking into oncoming traffic, ignoring the red traffic light, being careless and reckless.

In humans and in all animals, the purpose of fear is to promote survival. In the course of human evolution, the people who feared the right things survived to pass on their genes. In passing on their genes, the trait of fear and the response to it were selected as beneficial to the race.

Most of us are no longer running for our lives in the wild, but fear is far from an outdated instinct.

We may not be on continuous alert from wild animals stealth-ing for a meal, but many make the decision not to take a shortcut down a deserted alley, a rational fear that promotes survival. Only the stimuli has changed - our fear serves to protect us.

SOCIAL ANXIETY keeps people prisoner in their own story expectation or idea, unable to step out, they fear rejection. The fear that served to protect you also has the power to hold you in trepidation.

Fear can have such a stronghold, it affects many from asking questions, acquiring an education, seeking a career, finding their life path or discovering what possible options may be open to them. Fear holds people stuck.

Nervousness, fearfulness, apprehension and over concern, holds you in a negative place.

Fear stops some people from conceiving children, they fear what the future of this world will be.
Fear holds people back from fulfilling their most natural instincts.

If you are afraid of asking questions, stepping out, or giving life a go for fear of making a fool of yourself, it’s time to change paradigms. We can help you gently step forward in life.

If you feel watched over, evaluated or criticized by others, you are not free to explore you many life options. Instead you intelligences lay dormant and you feel trapped.

It’s freedom that you seek. The freedom to speak, to ask questions, to live your life the way you dream that it can be. Let us help you, find your courage.
