My best friend used to say that the whole world is messed up. We all feel down because the world is full of evil people and we just have to look out for ourselves. We should not mess with that evil and just stay at our homes to be safe. Today, i realize that the statement came from fear. A lot of us have social anxiety and think of ourselves as slaves on the planet. But the reality is totally different because the universe wants us to be free and the real freedom is when we can be ourselves without permission. All the negative things happening in our life is because of fear. Fear of success, fear of failure, fear of betrayal, fear of guilt, fear of people, fear of parents, fear of friends and all kinds of fear. But actually, fear is nothing but the absence of truth. Fear does not exist. It is just one of our many emotions and it gets triggered more and more when we feel unsafe. First of all, we have to remember to love ourselves a hundred percent each and every day. Also, we have to remember not to externalize our power because it is going to make us feel like victim. Fear is a false evidence appearing real. So, here are some reasons to why you should not be afraid and should live your life fearlessly.

First of all, we have to remember to love ourselves a hundred percent each and every day. Also, we have to remember not to externalize our power because it is going to make us feel like victim. Fear is a false evidence appearing real. So, here are some reasons to why you should not be afraid and should live your life fearlessly.
1. Fear Paralyzes Action
This is the main reason why people are afraid because they are thinking too much. When in essence we have to move more into our bodies. We have to develop the total body awareness through breathing deep from the base of our spines, through coming into nature and planting you feet. We have to always remember that if we are feeling stuck and can’t move then it is indication that we are not living into present moment but stuck in the past.
2. Realize what you got to lose
This is one of the biggest reason of fear because we are living through the persona which is the mask and this applies to fear in the relationships, fear of the new world order, fear of yourself and fear of people. It doesn’t matter because fear is fear. When you feel that you have so much to lose, we get stopped in our tracks. We have to see life as a creative adventure and realize that we have nothing to loose but ourselves because when we surrender ourselves to fear, we lose power.
3. Fear Strengthens you
You must be thinking that why fear strengthens us if it is a negative emotion. The key here is not to fear fear but to face it. When you become best friends with fear then you realize that it strengthens you. When you face what you are almost afraid of, you become empowered because if you face it once with total courage you are not going to fear the same thing ever again. They say – Chase fear into a room and become best friends with it because then you see there is nothing to be afraid of except fear itself. As, i said earlier, fear is nothing but a false evidence appearing real.
4. Fear is Separation
Once we see that everything is connected, we overcome fear and that is the reason why you should never be afraid because all of these categories, like Hindus and Muslims, people start to have conflict about whose god is better. I am straight, you are gay, she is lesbian, by all this we have this division that separates us. We have to realize that we are all made from the same fabric as the universe. We have to let go of fear because separation is the greatest illusion ever created.
5. Expanding your consciousness
It is all about broadening your perspective of what life is. That is how to never be afraid. We have to let go of perfection and see that it is merely an illusion. The books about overcoming fear won’t help you out, you have to discover for yourself. All of your fear, all of your ideas and all of your programming about what world is, is coming from your social conditioning. So we have to free ourselves from all labels, all dogmas, anything which is keeping us seeing the world in a limited way. Expanding your consciousness is to see that we have to take the opportunity, we have to take the chance because it may not come again.
6. It’s Nothing Personal
Many of us, we are afraid that we are stuck in our comfort zone because we feel that it is all about us. We have the instinct to take things personally and that is another cause of fear. It is just a story we have created. Once we can begin to see that the fear we have is coming from external factors but it is moving us because we take things personally. We should never be concerned with whether or not people like us. Because as magnificent as the sun is, people still complain saying that its too hot.
7. Being Authentic
Many of us are afraid of being ourselves and once we can see that this is one of the greatest reasons of our fear, we can develop an expression which is called our true self. Many of us,we are wearing different ropes, we are having different scripts in our hands and that is why, we have to ask ourselves how this is serving us. So, it is necessary to become authentic self to avoid fear. When you are authentic you are no longer vulnerable to fear.
