- The takeaway from this episode is … fear-driven tactics will become obvious to you.
- Here’s what this will do for you … you will become an observer of the fear, not a victim of it.
- Here’s what I want you to do with it … disarm the fear by writing down those instances when fear caught you off-guard. The more you document those unconscious moments the less effect they will have on you.
Linda, we told you many times from the time you were a baby, that most people who live in your time will die having lived fear-based lives.
If people stopped and listened, they would realize that almost everything is sold to them through the use of fear tactics. They may not even notice them because they have been so conditioned to react to the fearful messages that they don’t notice the effect these repetitive messages have.
You didn’t come into this life filled with fear, you learned it through societal conditioning and the media.
Almost everything people have come to believe has been programmed into them through fear tactics. Insurance and pharmaceutical drugs are both sold through fear. The biggest fear of all is that you will be condemned for all eternity because of what you did or didn’t do.
How can you make a good decision amid all the chaos of fear-driven tactics? It’s only possible for the fear to control you when you are not present and disconnected from us. This happens when you are thinking about the future and worried about what may or may not happen.
Since you didn’t come in with all this fear, look at how you got to this point in your thinking and beliefs where everything scares you. The first thing that happened is you lost touch with who you really are. If you follow the guidance you are always receiving, you will be led back to that person who first came here. That’s the fearless person who could do anything and experiment with anything. This is how you were able to experience yourself first – before anyone made any judgments about you.
You were self-realized and capable of making your own good decisions without fear.
When did you start letting everybody else make your decisions for you? How do you start finding your way back to your real self and get out of fear? Start by questioning everything you read or hear on the news, the TV, and the Internet, including what people believe to be the truth by repeating what they have heard or read to you.
You must assume that anyone who is loud or putting pressure on you is manipulating you, something that they will benefit from by selling you on it. Listen for the fear words or phrases like; you must act now before the price goes up, limited supply, ask your doctor if this Rx is good for you? Warning that you may be at risk if you don’t purchase now or, this will never be offered again. And the notorious going-out-of-business sale that is still in business a year later.
These are all based on the fear of loss, referred to as “takeaways.” What fear tactics affect you the most? Do you even recognize them? Isolate them by asking yourself, what if that’s not true? What if I’m being sold something that I do not believe and don’t even need. Write in your journal what you uncovered to put an end to being controlled by fear.
To realize just how much fear is directed at you turn off the volume on all ads. That includes radio, TV, Internet ads, and stop listening to the news completely. After just 30 days, review what you documented in your journal; how it feels, what you realize, and the action you feel incline to take … all without any pressure of fear tactics. What you have done over the last 30 days in stopping the relentless programming is to regain a sense of your true self. This is the first step in getting off the programming treadmill of living a fear-based life.
CALL TO ACTION:
- Almost everything you are being sold is sold through fear tactics.
- If you can’t identify what these fear tactics are then your decision-making will be flawed.
- Turning off all the fear-based tactics directed at you for just 30 days will change your life.
HOW IT WORKS: Using fear tactics to get you to react has become a standard marketing strategy. It’s legal manipulation and has proven to be the most cost-effective tactic to get you to do what they want. You have been conditioned to cave into this pressure making you feel you are lacking something in your life if you don’t act on it. This conditioning was first imposed on you when you were preschool age and has been building ever since. An age when you were the most vulnerable to these fear tactics. Break the spell of living a fear-based life. ~ Linda Deir
