It is not a fact. It is not you. And you can let it go.
Sedona, AZ (PRWEB) February 5, 2009
Hale Dwoskin, Featured Teacher in "The Secret" and author of the New York Times best seller "The Sedona Method," reveals how people can stop being afraid of losing everything in these very challenging economic times.
The two top sources of stress right now for 80 percent of Americans are money and the state of the economy, according to the American Psychological Association's 2008 Stress in America survey.
For many, amidst these concerns is a fear that their dwindling finances or recent unemployment will result in their losing everything: their home, retirement fund and ability to make ends meet each month. Listening to the economic forecasts does not provide much relief either, as economists are predicting that the recession may get worse before it gets better.
Already, eight out of 10 Americans are worried that the financial crisis will affect them directly, according to an AP-GfK poll. In fact, more than half of over 1,000 adults surveyed feared having to work longer in order to retire due to lost savings. Another half of respondents worried that their home's value would be reduced over the long-term.
Meanwhile, one-third feared that the financial crisis would put their jobs at risk, while a full eight in 10 had fear that increased federal debt would be a burden for their children and grandchildren.
In short, many people are carrying around a lot of fears due to these challenging financial times. And while it may seem impossible that someone could manage or even overcome such a large source of stress, getting a handle on the fear is actually the most important step to take.
"Whenever we focus on fear we are holding in mind that which we do not want," says Hale Dwoskin, CEO and director of training of Sedona Training Associates. "So unless you would like to lose everything, which I'm sure you do not, it is best to let the fear go."
"Also, whenever we're afraid, our body and mind contract and we are much less able to say, do or be what is required in order to protect ourselves and those we care about and move in a positive direction," he continues.
Self-confidence and an optimistic attitude about one's financial future are both requirements to achieving success. Yet right now many people -- perhaps more than at any time in decades -- likely have fears that are standing in their way.
The more people feel and focus on those fears and anxieties, posing questions such as:
-Will I have enough money to retire?
-How will I pay my bills?
-Will I be laid off?
-How can I afford to keep my home?
The more they bring those negative thoughts into their reality. Thoughts actually manifest into daily life, so people need to redirect their thoughts to positive ones -- and doing this first means letting go of the negative ones, including fears.
"The best way to release your fear is to remember first off that it is just a feeling," Dwoskin says. "It is not a fact. It is not you. And you can let it go."
Whenever times get tough, The Sedona Method is an especially crucial support system to help people get through. As soon as people learn its process of releasing, they become highly adept at letting go of the fears that are preventing them from achieving financial security and peace of mind.
"Here are two great ways to release fear," Dwoskin says. "The first is to simply welcome whatever you're feeling in this moment and then simply choose to let it go. The second great way to release fear is to recognize that every fear is built on a negative expectation."
"If you ask yourself what you are afraid of happening, that is the expectation," he continues. "Once you know what you are afraid of you can simply ask yourself, "Could I let go of the expectation or the desire for that to happen?" Both of these ways of releasing fear will have a very profound effect on your life."
To move past fear, people must stop resisting it and then let it go using The Sedona Method.
