Beach Walk 307 – Fear or Fun? It’s Personal.

A little more on the fear thing and how incredibly personal and subjective it is; it’s not the absolute something we would imagine.

Say what?? Just that what is scary to one person is a total laugh to another. It is not the thing or the experience that makes it scary, but rather one’s very own private experience of it.

There are a lot of things you and I can do when fear strikes though. First (which I didn’t mention in the show) is decide if there is bona-fide danger present, or is it the feeling of danger. In the boat the other day, it felt like danger even though my mind had facts to suggest otherwise. (Read comments from yesterday’s show for more on this.)

If it truly is dangerous, then breathe, and focus on getting out of the situation. if not, if it’s feelings of fear more than actual danger, try something like EFT to help transition the anxiety out of the body.

  1. I’ve heard and read a bit about EFT but I have never tried it. I would be interested in hearing more about your experience with this technique … it seems to be very popular.
