Fear On The Mind
In the wake of the constant focus and showcasing of all-things-fear, on the internet, mass-media, organized religions and the likes; I have decided to dedicate this web-cycle to the subject matter of ‘fear’. This cycle is primarily dedicated to sharing information that addresses ‘fear’ in different manifestations and expression and things that we can do to become more insightful, aware, courageous in such a fear-driven society.
The most commonly known acronym for the word fear is; false, evidence, appearing, real and I agree with this perspective. However, I would like to add my own spin and interpretation of the word fear – which is; frantic, energetic, auto, response! When we look at the word ‘frantic’, which means to conduct in a hurried, excited, and chaotic way, typically because of the need to act quickly; to worry; be agitated, distressed, distraught or overwrought. We have all experienced the aforementioned at some point in our lives and for measurable and justified reasons but what if we are feeling either or all of the later and the reasons are not so measurable, provable or justified? This is where the ‘energetic auto response’ part of my interpretation comes into the fold. Many of us are literally on an auto-pilot and it is with certain buzz words, suggestions, visions, beliefs that creates and stirs ‘energy into motion’ and produces the illogical and erratic response!
We have all experienced fear in some form or another and within its proper context, ‘fear’ can be a great equalizer with regards to self preservation (fight or flight responses). However, it is the ‘other’ form of fear that we have previously outlined that we must begin exploring and recognizing because from my perspective – the constant fear mongering-campaigns will not be dwindling in our collective reality no time soon. In fact, the exploiters, profiteers, manipulators and social engineers of fear will be sure to make their ‘stakes’ more common and widespread. Don’t fret because there are things that we can do to counter-act these movements. In order to do this, we must go to the root, cause and effect of our respective fears and proactively apply techniques, exercises and ‘right-knowledge’ to counter, neutralize or control them. Hence, the power of ‘frantic, energetic, auto, response’ (fear) is only as such, when WE loose control; cooperate with it and inadvertently permit it to BE. Its time to REALLY take control of your mind and power!
“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers the fear”… Nelson Mandela
FEAR & THE BRAIN
It’s an exciting time for the science of fear – a time when scientists are actively researching and learning about this and other basic emotions. People have sought a better understanding of the mysterious workings of the brain since ancient times. But until relatively recently, determining exactly how emotion relates to brain function was considered too difficult or abstract a question to fruitfully study.
Today, modern technology and an improved understanding of basic brain processes have equipped researchers with the tools and knowledge to really begin to see how emotions, such as fear, operate in the brain. Using a variety of techniques, such as studying animals and individuals with damaged or completely missing brain areas, scientists have managed to shed light on areas of the brain that are important to the fear response.

THE SCIENCE OF FEAR AND HOW TO OVERCOME IT
Aristotle believed courage to be the most important quality in a man. “Courage is the first of human virtues because it makes all others possible," he wrote. Today, it's one of the more neglected areas of positive psychology, but recent research has begun to move toward an understanding of what courage is and how we might be able to cultivate the ability to face our fear and make decisions with greater fortitude.
Neuroscientists recently determined just how courage works in the brain, finding that a region called the subgenual anterior cingulate cortex (sgACC) is the driving force behind courageous acts -- a conclusion which could one day prove useful in treating anxiety disorders.
So how can we train our minds to act more courageously in everyday life?
Other recent research on courage, which has shown that's it's not just about facing fear, but also about coping with risk and uncertainty (as Ernest Hemingway put it, courage is "grace under pressure.") And, it seems, we can make ourselves more courageous with practice and effort. Click here to read more
