Day 119


I am here in this moment and I feel safe.

I am here in this moment and I feel secure.

I am here in this moment and I feel at ease.

I am here in this moment and I am safe.

I am here in this moment and I am secure.

I am here in this moment and I am at ease.

Fear always arises in the present moment but is never about circumstances that exist in the present moment. The present circumstances are nothing more than triggers or precipitating factors for fear.  Fear is the result of anticipatory thoughts of a future, yet-to-happen experience.

We can consider any fear – from a fear of flying to a fear of abandonment – and in each instance the fear is the result of a thought of what could happen in a future time.  Once a fear is realized it disappears or is replaced by a new fear. Fear is always moving forward into the next possible point in time and the experience that may arise. For instance, a person who is afraid of walking alone at night is actually afraid of what may happen to them while walking, such as being robbed.  But should they find themselves being robbed, the fear of being robbed will be replaced by a new fear, perhaps of being injured.  And if injured, the fear of being injured will be replaced by a new fear of another as yet realized experience.

So what does all this mean?  It means that we can overcome our fears when we recognize that fear is an anticipatory response that can only exist outside the present moment.  This awareness means that we can live outside of fear when we understand and accept that even while in the midst of our most feared experience we would not be afraid of that current experience.  We cannot avoid the inevitable experiences that cause us anxiety and distress, but we can work toward eliminating the fear we create and experience as the result of living in a future yet-to-be by holding ourselves in a present moment mindset – a place where fear does not exist.

Day 171


Fear exists nowhere but in the perception of a future moment, therefore I remain fully present and existent in the moment that is here and now.

I have the power to prevent my thoughts from moving from reality to fear, and I use that power willfully.

I refuse to let fear dis-able me with thoughts of what could, might or will be.


Fears are created when a situation is considered and determined to hold the potential for physical or emotional danger. It is the anticipation of a situation that produces fear, not the current reality.  We experience fear in the present moment but it always arises from the perception of a future event.   A fear of flying is about what could happen.  A fear of heights is about what might happen.   A fear of death is about what will (or won’t) happen.  Every fear, when dissected, reveals itself to be a what could be situation, not a what is.  If I am afraid of snakes, then suddenly find myself in a pit of them, my fear in that present moment will no longer be of the snakes themselves, but that they might bite me.  If I am being bitten, my fear in that present moment will no longer be of being bitten, but of that bite being poisonous.  I may continue to be in fear but the fear will continue to be about the next what if.    By consciously choosing thoughts that are about the present moment, and refusing to engage thoughts about what is not yet present, we can free ourselves from the crippling and dis-abling effects of fear.   Remember, fears are always about the un-real, because nothing exists but what IS.
