Fear is the greatest emotion that any human has And this is why The Media & Entertainment flood us with this through out our entire lives.

Fear, like many emotions, is very powerful. This affects us mentally and physically; personal and interpersonal consequences can arise from fear. “Self-perceived vulnerability to ataques (attacks): owing to recent ataque episodes, poor sleep, recent stressors, the self-perception of being a person with nervios (nerves)” (Hinton, Lewis-Fernandez and Pollack, 2009, p. 265) Which will lead to the fear of having a panic attack which then leads to the increase of your anxiety and “(2) hypervigilant surveying of the body and mind for emotions and somatic and psychological symptoms associated with an ataque” (Hinton, 2009, p. 265) and all this leads to an actual attack. Fear can cause dizziness, cold extremities, hyperventilation, chest tightness, shortness of breath, shakiness, a feeling of bodily lightness even derealization. “Negative emotions and somatic and psychological symptoms activate fear networks, namely, catastrophic cognitions (e.g., concern that racing thoughts indicate impending insanity, that palpitations indicate a heart attack), metaphoric associations (e.g., the combination of dizziness and fear recalling sexual abuse suffered as a child)”. (Hinton, 2009, p. 265) Therefore becoming this circle of fear and panic attacks that a person can’t escape from unless they calm their fears. Fears can be paralyzing to people and affect their lives in many ways. With reoccurring attacks there are certain things a person might have to start giving up like straying too far away from home, not being able to go places without a “safe” person, going out with friends and even driving; basically giving up your freedom and now affecting your personal relationships.

Another way fear has affected human beings would be the relationships we choose to have. With fear conditioning we have been taught at an early age either by experience or from our role models what to fear. “Beginning in the 1980s, media accounts and policy discourses increasingly equated crime and race. The result is that ‘White Americans tend to associate criminality with people of color and believe that most criminals come from racial minorities’ (Soss, Langbein, & Metelko, 2003, p. 400).” (Mears and Stewart, 2009, p. 34) Fear of being hurt, emotionally or physically, can keep us from finding relationships that could be extremely significant in our lives; we don’t fear what we know. Mears and Stewart (2009) also stated, “By contrast, Covington and Taylor’s (1991) study of Baltimore neighborhoods found that Blacks residing in predominantly White neighborhoods were more fearful of crime than was the case among Blacks in predominantly Black neighborhoods, Reflecting on the Covington and Taylor (1991) finding, Skogan (1995) observed that it accords with the idea that ‘Black residents of White neighborhoods [may face] threats or harassment and more often [may be] the targets of humiliation and contempt’(p.68).” Also if you have experienced abuse in your life you might be fearful of people that would match your assailant. Fear can really cause barriers with certain communication between people.

there is a entire series on this topic.

Learn to control fear itself and you become a very powerful person, fear is actually healthy; it keeps you alive.

It can also become unhealthy, when you can't control it...

NLP = Neural Linguistic Programming

Television Programs = Programming

Don't watch TV.... or movies.

Check out of some of Derren Brown's UTube NLP Vids...

The thugs who run the "show" will never miss an opportunity to "Program" their audiences.

Don't watch TV. Get rid of your Cable/Satellite subscriptions.

NLP is accomplished by putting the "target" into a state of confusion. "Putting the mind in neutral" is accomplished via drugs, hypnosis, or simply confusing the "target" so that the "programmer" can take control.

TV is programming. When the "target" watches TV they place their mind in neutral. The "programming" then takes control.

Don't watch TV.

"Fear YHWH... not man." Build your core beliefs upon the teachings within the Tanakh. In the desert while fasting and praying, Yahshua was confronted by the "author of confusion". He countered with accuracy all attempts to trick Him into accepting a counterfeit understanding of "life".

When the "fear" mongers spread their deception... if you have done your work... you will instantly be able to counter their confusion with "truth".

“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid. John 14:27 New Living Translation (NLT)

To all "Jews" reading this.... Thanks for all of your perserverance in keeping The Book alive and well.
