VI. Other Topics




1. Fear is a chronic, paralyzing, negative attitude or perspective.

2. Fear is a habit of thinking negatively about people and situations.

3. Fear is a negative judgment of people, places and events.

4. Fear is a hellish dwelling place of the mind.

5. Fear is living in either an unhappy past or an unhappy future.

6. Fear is a neurosis or negative fixation of the mind. It is thus a type of mental illness.

7. Fear is a choice one makes in every moment.

8. Fear is always a wrong choice because one is not in the present, and because one is judging rather than discerning the truth about everything.

9. Fear is a basic trauma. A trauma is a situation in which you are stuck and cannot fully overcome what occurred. So the mind tends to replay it, dwell on it, and it often upsets one's entire life.

10. Fear is a poison for the body and the mind.

11. Fear is not an entity in itself. It is simply a lack of something else called Love. This is very important. F-E-A-R stands for False Evidence Appearing Real. Here is an analogy to understand this better:

The darkness analogy. Darkness is like fear. It is not “an energy” in itself. It is simply a lack of light. If you are in a dark place, you don't need to “wallow in the darkness”. All you need do is turn on a light and the darkness vanishes! That is it. You are done.

However, fear is so common that people think it is normal. It is not normal! The faster you realize this and get rid of it, the better.

To understand this better, we can examine a somewhat similar concept – fright.


Fright is a bodily response in the present to a real or perceived threat. It is mediated through the autonomic nervous system and the adrenal glands, where it is called the fight-or-flight response.

Fright is a normal response when one is faced with a threat or stressor. Unlike fear, when the stress is over, fright goes away.


Physical/nutritional reasons. A lot of fear is simply due to negative messages sent from your cells to your brain telling you that you are not healthy. That is all it is!

As you become healthier, this source of fear goes away and you receive happy messages from your cells. Many of our clients report they are less afraid as they heal and develop.

Emotional causes. Unpleasant or painful situations and events often lead a person to become afraid. It is important to do something each day that you enjoy and that helps to dispel fear.

Ego reasons. As discussed above, the ego mind is based upon fear.

Social reasons. Social situations or events can cause fear. This is why quality relationships are important and friends can help one deal with fear.

Do not give outside events the power to cause you to move into fear.

Work-related reasons. Lack of creative expression and poor quality work and other relationships can lead to fear.

Intellectual reasons. Today there is a concerted effort to make people afraid of thing such as climate change, systemic racism, the unfairness of capitalism and other lies. Stay away from these ideas.

Spiritual reasons. If you feel separated from God or the higher Self or oversoul or Father, you will feel afraid. Know that you are never separate from the Creator!



Fear is about the worst emotion imaginable for your health. Everyone needs to become aware of fear and let it go if you want to have good health.

Fear also slows development. This is another reason to work with your fear to reduce it.


Copper is associated with fear. Zinc is associated with love and less fear. Other toxic metals are associated with fear to varying degrees.

As you alter the balance of minerals in your body, this will help reduce fear. However, one still has to let go of fear mentally. Otherwise, it is more difficult to change the mineral balance and healing is definitely slower.


Certain spiritual books say there are only two emotions – love and fear. These are also dwelling places of the mind.

Fear is the dwelling place of the ego mind or ego self. Love is the dwelling place of the higher mind or Real Self.

Biblical references. The loving dwelling place is known in the Bible as “the kingdom of heaven”. For example, a statement from the New Testament is “the kingdom of heaven is within. Seek it not outside yourself”.

In the 23rd psalm of David, the mental dwelling place of love is called “the house of the Lord”. The last part of this psalm is an affirmation that “I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” To me, this means to dwell in a loving rather than a fearful mental dimension.

One is always in a state of Fear or a state of Love. You can ask in any moment, am I in Love or am I in Fear? If you find you are in fear, you can ask to choose again.

For more details, read Tthe Real Self or Love Is The Answer.

J. Krishnamurti, in particular, discusses in his books that there are fears such as fear of death, fear of illness, fear of loss, fear of poverty, and many more. However, there is also a larger concept of LIVING IN FEAR. This is a dwelling place of the mind or dimension of space.

He says if you are in this place, you will find something to be afraid of. If you are not afraid of illness, you will find something else to be afraid of. So he says the goal is overcome the FEAR PLACE. For details, read Fear Is A Dwelling Place Of The Mind.



The opposite of fear is FAITH. Learn to live by faith. This does not means to be stupid or careless. However, everyone must learn to live by faith. Faith is a quality of the seventh energy center. Think about faith, and read about it at Having Faith.



If you find yourself in fear, you are living in the future. Fear and anxiety indicate living in the future. Guilt and remorse indicate you are living in the past.

The ideal is to live in the present. All knowledge is available only in the present and living in the present is actually the best preparation for the future.

Living in the present is not the same as living for the present moment. Doing the Pulling Down Procedure helps greatly to stay in the present.

Living in the present is a discipline. If you find yourself fearful or anxious, you need to pull yourself back from the future into the present. If you find yourself feeling guilty or full of remorse, you need to pull yourself back into the present. Everyone will need to do this thousands of times until the mind learns to remain in the present.

A number of authors discuss this topic including J. Krishnamurti in his books and Roy Masters in his books.


This is a very important fact about fear. Most often, people turn it into anger. Anger is often more pleasant to live with than fear. We say, if you ever find yourself angry, ask “What am I afraid of?”


Some people teach that we should be afraid of God. However, at this time I don't think this is quite correct.

If a person believes he or she is totally loved by God, he or she will have little or no fear regarding secular matters. For this reason, those who truly believe in God have less fear.

In some cases, the believers substitute fear of God for fear of death, illness, rape or poverty. We think this is better, but not ideal.

We believe at this time that the best attitude is “I and the Father are one. I am one with God.” (from the New Testament of the Bible).

This is not a fearful attitude at all, but rather one of Love and operating from Love and a feeling of closeness with the true power in the universe. In this state, one follows the Ten Commandments, for example, not out of fear but rather from a strong belief that they are valid and helpful.


Fear stops development. Let it go for this reason and the others above.


Those with less fear usually have a larger and healthier first energy center. The first energy center located between the legs and pointing downward connects a person with the earth and has a grounding and centering effect.

Ways to improve your first energy center include all of the low body healing procedures such as coffee enemas, the bidet procedures, vaginal and penis coffee and peroxide, and the genital bath.

Other ways are the pulling down procedure, walking, gardening and other activities that tend to connect one with the earth.

Other ways are to avoid wearing high heeled shoes and to live and work near the earth rather than in a high rise building. Another way is to work on being practical, grounded and “down to earth”, and to do things with your hands.


An observation is that those who have a large seventh energy center often have less fear. They also tend to be more spiritually-oriented people and one can say they are closer to God or the higher self.

Therefore, to help overcome fear, grow your seventh energy center. One does this by concentrating and spending time on spiritual matters. This can include reading and studying spiritual material, doing spiritual practices such as attending worship services, praying and doing the pulling down procedure. Also helpful is to think spiritually about everything at all times, rather than think about things mainly in a physical or material sense.


The author used the 23rd psalm of David from the Hebrew Bible for a long time to help overcome fear. It is very powerful, although it is just one of many prayers and affirmations that may be helpful.

Very important: It is not necessary that you believe the affirmation or prayer. The author did not believe it was true. He just knew he needed to overcome fear.

You just repeat the prayer or affirmation many times. It will bring up its opposite in your mind. This is sometimes called cognitive dissonance.

In other words, saying the prayer upsets the mind and this helps ob the mind out of its old habit. Remember, fear is just an old habit and a bad one.

When the author first used the prayer, it was just a bunch of words. One day, however, after saying it many times each day it actually made sense. This began his process of letting go of fear.

The process of overcoming fear. The process required some years for the author. Improving health by ridding the body of toxic metals and replacing them with the correct vital minerals was needed, as was overcoming a number of traumas.

It also required facing various fears – about people, money, the earth and more. So it is not going to be an overnight accomplishment. However, it is certainly possible and definitely worth the effort.


Anyone who wants to control you usually uses fear as one of their weapons. Don’t allow it!


The group we call the Rogues specialize in creating fear. We now think this is to help people overcome it. It is the indirect teaching method.


One technique the author has used is to talk to your fear. Tell it that you know its game – it is to stop development and happiness.

Tell your fear its days are numbered because you understand it and you will not let it stop you from doing the development program. Be prepared to say this many, many times.


Fear causes subtle energy to move upward through the body. Any procedure or method that moves energy downward – from the head to the feet – reduces fear. The entire development program is a downward-moving energy program. For details, read Down Energy And Healing.


Fatigue always makes fear much worse. Go to bed early and get plenty of rest and this will help with fear. Many people are chronically tired and in burnout. This is when sleeping does not relieve your fear. The development program will rebuild your energy system and restore your energy. For details, read Adrenal Burnout Syndrome and Chronic Fatigue.


In general, women have more fear than men. The reasons are:

Physical reasons - Women are generally physically smaller and weaker than men. They are also generally less coordinated than men and cannot run as fast.

Also, women are generally more sensitive than men and thus more easily injured.

Women are more physically attractive than men and this causes fear of abduction, seduction, and rape. Men have much less of these fears.

Some women are afraid of bleeding during the menstrual period and the psychological effects of premenstrual tension such as brain fog, excessive emotions and more.

Women are also more fearful today because there are not enough men around who are defenders of women. Too many men are opportunists, predators and some are rapists.

Another reason for fear is that women have a more difficult time being alone, whether at home, at work, traveling and in other situations. It is just not as safe.

2. Emotional/sexual reasonsMost women's bodies are higher in copper and lower in zinc than most men's bodies. This causes women to be more emotional with less emotional control than men.

During sex, women fear an unwanted pregnancy, often have more fear of diseases, and fear going out of control with multiple orgasms.

3. Ego/financial reasons. Women have more trouble financially than men. One reason is that some jobs are unsafe and thus not open to women. Women also have to contend with their menstrual period, which can affect their work performance.

4. Social reasonsWomen are less able to be on their own due to the fears above. They are thus more dependent upon others, which causes some fear.

Specifically, women need help during childbirth, a situation men do not share.

Some women's habits of dress and behavior cause more fear. These include having long hair, wearing high heels, wearing sexy clothing, flirting, and more.

5. PartnershipsWomen are more afraid in marriages and relationships than are men, once again because in general women are weaker and smaller and prone to domestic violence.

Within marriages, women fear death during childbirth.

6. Intellectual reasons at this time there is not a cultural demand that men defend women. The Rogues teach the opposite and want women to be frightened and 'available' for sex or rape.

7. Spiritual/religious reasons Many religions do not treat women well. This contributes to fears of abduction, seduction, rape, eatings and more.
