Fear of Death
When I was 13yrs old (now I am 21), one of my father’s friends looked at my father’s hand and said that, “you’ll die at the age of 54.” (my dad is now 52yrs old).
This negative thought used to make me sad and unhappy. But I really did not care, because I believed that it wasn’t true (I still believe the same).
But after watching The Secret I was on a high, happy that I’m in tune with my career goals and relationships.
But this thought has again entered my mind, and it keeps coming back, over and over again. The pictures of my father’s death is coming over and over again. If I see anybody, a picture of that person’s death is also playing in my mind.
How do I get back to my normal life?
I am using gratitude and positive thought as a solution and I am able create some peace. But these thoughts are killing me.
Please help me. How do I get out of this negative thought?
I am blessed with wonderful parents and grandparents. I am very lucky, I am grateful for that, and I want to enjoy that.
Plz help me. Thanku.Law-of-Attraction-Guide Reply
This is a perfect demonstration of how negative thoughts and emotions, which we picked up when we were children, can some how unconsciously stay with us.
These thoughts that you were exposed of as a child must have, at the time, been quite a concern for you, and as you did not want to face them, you locked them away in your unconscious, which is where they have been growing and festering since.
And, since seeing the film The Secret, you have probably become much more aware of these thoughts, which is why they have come back to haunt you.
Although, at the moment this is not something you can see as positive, but when you have learnt to deal with these negatives, you can take some relief that this unwanted way of thinking will be gone from you forever. In other words, you are going to have much more benefit from dealing with these thoughts, rather than leaving them locked away.
Before I talk about dealing with these emotions, I just want to offer you some reassurance.
These thoughts will in no way effect the reality of the people you are thinking about. Your father is completely safe from your way of thinking, as his reality can only be created by his thought. This is one of the basic principles of the Law of Attraction.
Using gratitude and positive thinking will definitely give you some relief, as it works on the principle that a negative thought can not exist in the same place as a positive one.
In the book The Master Key System, Charles Haanel tells us what positive affirmation to use, he says…“I built up an affirmation for myself, taking the qualities I most needed, and affirming for myself over and over again, "I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy." I kept up this affirmation, always the same, never varying, till I could wake up in the night and find myself repeating, "I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy." It was the last thing on my lips at night and the first thing in the morning.
Not only did I affirm it for myself, but for others that I knew needed it. I want to emphasize this
point. Whatever you desire for yourself, affirm it for others, and it will help you both. We reap what we sow. If we send out thoughts of love and health, they return to us like bread cast upon the waters; but if we send out thoughts of fear, worry, jealousy, anger, hate, etc., we will reap the results in our own lives.”
Haanel also goes on to tell why this would be helpful, and when to use this affirmation…“Man is the sum total of his own thoughts; so the question is, how are we going to entertain only the good thoughts and reject the evil ones? At first we can't keep the evil thoughts from coming, but we can keep from entertaining them. The only way to do this is to forget them -- which means, get something for them. This is where the readymade affirmation comes into play.
When a thought of anger, jealousy, fear or worry creeps in, just start your affirmation going. The way to fight darkness is with light -- the way to fight cold is with heat -- the way to overcome evils is with good. For myself, I never could find any help in denials. Affirm the good, and the bad will vanish.”
This is a powerful method of overcoming negative thoughts, but it would be much more effective if you develop your power of thought and awareness.
In the Master Key System, Charles Haanel uses a form of meditation, or visualization to help you gain control over your thoughts, and his system makes up part of our Law of Attraction training program, Unlock The Power of You
Certainly, the key to contoling your thoughts will come through some form of meditation, and as you practise this skill, your positive thinking and gratitude will become much more effective.
I would recommend that you practise some form of meditation at least once a day. I have practised Vipassana Meditation for some time now and I am sure it will help you, take a look at the UrbanDharma.org Website
for some great information, you can also download an eBook on Vipassana, called Mindfulness in Plain English“Vipassana is a form of mental training that will teach you to experience the world in an entirely new way. You will learn for the first time what is truly happening to you, around you and within you. It is a process of self discovery, a participatory investigation in which you observe your own experiences while participating in them, and as they occur.”
I would also suggest that you have a look at EFT
and The Sedona Method
, they are both very effective ways of removing negative beliefs and emotions, (follow the links above, there are plenty of free resources).
I hope that you find some of these ideas helpful, but before I leave you, I was curious to know what your father’s thoughts on this were?
Is he plagued with the same fears and worries, or is this something that he brushed of when he first heard it?
The chances are, this is something that he never took on board, as his subconscious mind was not as susceptible to suggestion as yours was, in which case I would leave well alone.
However, if this is something that does bother him, please share these ideas and thoughts with him.Law-of-Attraction-Guide.com
