What is Fear? 062915
First a standard definition per Google: an unpleasant emotion caused by the
belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a
I must say that is a very accurate definition as far as it goes.
However to understand that definition, you must know what “emotion” is.
Again per Google: a natural instinctive state of mind deriving from one's
circumstances, mood, or relationships with others.
And further: instinctive or intuitive feeling as distinguished from reasoning or
Again, these definitions of emotion are commonly accepted as accurate.
Personally these definitions leave me with questions.
Emotion is a physical display of energy at different frequencies. You can
perceive the frequencies. For example, you can perceive when someone is
angry. When you're angry, you can perceive or feel it. Different emotions feel
different. They are different perceivable frequencies.
There is a scale of call the "Emotional Tone Scale." I've included a video
below for further information.
The frequencies of the emotional band for humans at the bottom is Death.
The scale goes up to Enthusiasm. Fear happens to be about three quarters
down from enthusiasm towards death.
Fear is a “reactive” emotion. Google nailed it “...feeling as distinguished
from reasoning or knowledge.”
Fear is not logical. It is a reaction. You could become fearful from hearing a
gunshot only to find out it was a firecracker.
You and or your body reacted to a sound. There was no logic, no distinction,
between the crack of a gun and that of a firecracker.
Energy Characteristics of Fear
Fear is in the “flight or fight band.” Very specific, its run like hell. Fighting,
when in fear, is a ultimate last resort, you're cornered!
Fear is a dispersal, like the exploding firecracker. Its an effort to go away in
For comparison, anger is a “hold” position. When in anger, the effort is to
stop motion, to hold it in. Police often get into the band of “stopping all
motion.” Arthritis is frequent when someone is chronically angry.
Old, Franklin D Roosevelt, in his first inaugural address, said “Only Thing
We Have to Fear Is Fear Itself.” He was right.
Recognizing Source of Fear
Once, I was experiencing anxiety, a low level of fear. Mentally, I searched my
environment for what was making it dangerous.
After a few minutes, I realized what was causing the fear! I had drank a lot of
coffee earlier and had basically poisoned the body. The body thought it was
in danger after all I had poisoned it.
Upon realizing what the situation was, the fear blew, vanished.
Bodies, that are exhausted, starving, drugged, dehydrated..., will feel fear.
You must care for the body enough to keep it doing well else it will punish
you with uncomfortable emotions. You can get sick because you've stressed
There is another extremely powerful way you can feel fear and may not
recognize it. That is when you have someone in your environment that is
suppressing you. Simply put someone is making less of you, making your
I've included a second video to help you understand this.
People suppressing you can be extremely covert, hidden undercover, in their
efforts to pull the rug out from under you!
In the above example, when I searched my environment, I was looking for
someone. There was no one that time, only coffee.

To handle fear, you need to move from being reactive (uncontrolled emotion
and physical actions) to a logical level. When you become logical, reasoning
instead of reacting, you can handle the situation.
The first step is to grab a pen and paper and write down the situation. This
removes it from only being in your mind and places it motionless on paper.

To write intelligently, you have to be somewhat logical.
Most situation are very temporary. As a temporary situation, you emotional
tone will either sink to an apathy or rise to a higher level. Usually, you will
rise emotionally to the tone level that is normal for you.
If writing down the situation doesn't almost immediately help, look round for
someone who makes you wrong, invalidates you. If you spot, write down in
detail what they are doing. You need to handle them or stay away from them.
Your health and sanity depend on you NOT being the effect of them.

If you're about to die, get standard “cancer treatments” or go to prison, you
may sink down to grief or apathy. These situations are very likely to get
worse, not better.
Most situations are not that dangerous or far reaching.
