As human beings we are “doomed” to feel fear every now and then. There will be various bases for it, including financial security, and there’s no way out. Even if you are very wealthy you still have fears, doubts, ups and downs, worries and all sort of “negative” feelings. You cannot get rid of them, but you can balance them using various techniques.

It’s this story that makes you interpret certain reactions in your body as certain feelings. Fear and pain very often are manifested in the body in exactly the same way as excitement and pleasure. Simply observe your body when you have those feelings, focus on those feelings in the body and turn their volume to the maximum until you see them for what they really are. It might take 10-20 minutes before that happens. Just be patient – stay with it, and the reward will surprise you beyond your belief.
