Fear feeds fear. When you feel it coming on, even just the slightest twinge — a catch in your breath, a twist in your gut, whatever your first sign of fear is, STOP!!! Yell STOP!!! And stop. Then replace the fear with the wholeness and balance of all that is. Picture this in what ever way works for you but if you are needing a starting point The God Flush is an example of the kind of thinking which may help as a replacement for fear thoughts.
Once you begin to become aware of the first twinges of fear and STOP, not allowing yourself to be seduced by it (yes folks we do love a bit of a wallow) you will start to master your life. It is really like giving up any bad habit — stop doing the habitual behavior and replace it with another preferred behavior.
Of course it also helps to know that the energy that is you, like any energy, can not be destroyed – transformed yes – but not destroyed. It is true that there is nothing to fear but fear itself. If you can’t actually believe that today, pretend. Pretending properly can take you a long, long way. Just Whistle a Happy Tune ain’t just whistlin Dixie :).
