Being afraid of the wrong thing is possibly only something that can be differentiated per person. Your fears and my fears are different and I may feel that you don’t need to fear something, but I do not know your background. Our thinking, things we’ve heard and our experiences lead us to be afraid of things.
Some suffer from Vestiphobia, the intense fear of clothes or clothing. Do you think that’s as ridiculous as I do? You may say that wasting your time fearing clothes is wrong, but who knows what made the person afraid of clothes scared of clothes. Just saying…Ok I think you get my point. (See an A-Z list of phobia’s HERE.)
Although saying things are wrong to fear can depend from person to person, our fears can still be controlled and prevented from coming true.
Did you ever hear of the Law of Attraction? I’m not talking about how you and your boyfriend met, I’m talking about how the vibrations that you send out to the rest of the world allow certain things to reach you and become part of your life.
The Law of Attraction can work both positively and negatively and is based on the orientation of our thoughts. The Secret, once a book now a documentary too, also speaks about how what you focus your thoughts on will guide your actions and become your reality. The Secret guides you to get what you want out of the Law of Attraction, but doesn’t teach you the flip side.
Here’s the flip side. By being afraid of things we are allowing them to enter our lives, because we constantly keep them in our thoughts. By allowing your vibrations to sync with what you fear you let the Law of Attraction work in a negative way.
To be aware and to be afraid are two different things, so rather be aware of possible dangers than to be continuously afraid and draw them to you. Positively orientating your thoughts and imagining things getting better and better is certainly the way to go.
