Nobody likes to admit that they are being consumed by fear, but in reality that is exactly what happens to most people in this world! Life’s are shaped by the thoughts of ordinary people and influenced by the media and environment we are surrounded with. I will share a great story with you by Robert Kiyosaki that made me reshape my thoughts years ago. But first, let me explain how your thoughts are shaping your life right now.
What You Fear Most, Will Consume You
What you fear the most, ends up consuming you. It’s the good old Law Of Attraction. Thought equals reality. What you think about most, you end up manifesting for yourself. It is not a science. It is not humbo jumbo. It is a simple fact of human nature. When your mind is consumed with a thought, that thought will become your reality in some form, and it will happen sooner than you think. YOU make it happen and the more you focus on it, the faster it will be your reality. You mind rules your actions.
What are your greatest fears? Seriously, dig deep! What are your REAL fears? You have to dig deep to acknowledge them. Once you find them, you can work towards removing these deep seated fears from your life. If you don’t, they can become part of your life eventually, in some form. So what are your fears?
- Going broke?
- Putting on weight?
- Getting an illness because it ‘runs’ in the family?
- Loosing the family home?
- Working all your life, just to find out there will be no pension?
- Being alone in your twilight years?
- Having to send your children to war?
- Nuclear power?
- Swine flu?
- Being eaten by Cannibals? (read on for this one)
The list can go on….
Your fear carries strong negative energy in your mind and affects your body. You become at dis-ease. The dis-ease of the mind becomes the disease of the body. The body eventually breaks down from the disease of the mind (negative thoughts) and the mind becomes weak. It is a dangerous cycle.
Robert Kiyosaki’s Example
I have read many books by Robert Kiyosaki since year 2000. In one of Robert’s books, he tells a great story about “Becoming What You Fear”. Let me share it with you as I recall it:
In the 19th century, around the 1830’s, a whaling boat was rammed and sunk in the Pacific Ocean by a great white Sperm Whale. The whale was supposedly the famous “Mocha Dick” that inspired the even more famous book: Moby Dick.
The crew of the whaler, packed into their lifeboat somewhere in the sea between Chile and Tahiti. They had enough supplies to reach Tahiti, but they had a big problem… They had heard that Tahiti was inhabited with Cannibals and their thoughts were that they would likely be Consumed by Cannibals as soon as they reached the beaches of these ‘horrible’ tropical islands.
They did not have enough water and food to reach Chile and would most certainly starve to death if they chose the path towards Chile, however their fear of being eaten by Cannibals was far to powerful. So they set off east for the coast of Chile.
The survivors that reached Chile got there but at a price that would haunt them for the rest of their life’s. In order to survive they had to eat their dead. What they feared the most had consumed them.
They had become Cannibals themselves.
Thank you Robert Kiyosaki for sharing this story with me.
Fear Only Fear Itself
So what do you really fear? Or should I rather say: What can you afford to fear? What do you currently have in your life that has arrived there compliments of your deep seated fears? Dare I say, some people have received some very tough treatment in their life that nobody else could possibly imagine. That sets off an evil mind-cycle of fears that consumes them over time. It is something I personally don’t know how to help them with other than offering a few positive thoughts and tools that help me with the ‘minor issues’ that consume me.
My fears have become reality many times. In business I fear being ripped off by people I trust, just to find out they are crooks and schemers with little or few ethics. I mention this in my article: Selling Grandma On eBay and also rant on about it in my SEO blog: Australian Internet Marketing. It hurts to see people drive around in Ferrari’s and pay $5,000.00 quarterly pool gas heating bills, when they owe you 100’s of thousands in commissions. But, as I say above: This fear has caught up with me to teach me a lesson:
Don’t fear anything but fear itself!
Erase Your Fears And Blossom
Don’t focus on Cancer. Don’t think we will get attacked by terrorists. Don’t fear nuclear power. Don’t fear getting fat. Don’t, don’t, don’t… There is no need to be ignorant about it, but please don’t fuel the issues with your thoughts and energy. Problems become real issues once enough people focus on them.
Ramraiding was never an issue until a movie made it mainstream knowledge. Literally overnight, the entire western world had to install ramraid posts infront of their unprotected shop windows. Even though this practice had been only occasionally used since the 1930’s, now it started to happen a lot! People were now thinking about it. We placed the thoughts into many people’s minds and it became an everyday issue. I can think of a few world events recently that has fuelled some major fears across the world and has certainly caused the issue to grow rather than go away.
I will finish off with my all time favourite songline by Bob Marley:
Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our mind
Have no fear of atomic energy
Cause none of them can stop the time
Have an outstanding day
