How Do You Get Past Your Fears?


Hi, I am currently 15 years old and I know this may seem childish or juvenile, but to this day I am still afraid of the dark, or rather, what's in the dark. You see, it's like every time I turn off the light to go to sleep, or every time I'm alone in a dark room it's like someone is watching me, or sometimes it feels like there's someone right behind me. Or when I'm lying in my bed it feels like there's someone sitting beside my bed just starring at me and it's very disconcerting. When I was a child I used to see things, and I think they were spirits and they used to terrify me to the point where I'd be afraid to move, it was somewhat traumatizing. This may be why I feel this way. I've also experienced what some call sleep paralysis which is also quite horrifying.

Lately I've been trying to reconnect with my psychic abilities and open myself, connect with my spirit guides stuff like that but I just can't shake this uncontrollable fear I have. I've heard people say that I shouldn't fear ghosts and I should fill myself with love and stuff but I can't shake the fear. Come to think of it, this fear is probably what suppressed my abilities to start with. I mean I haven't seen a ghost since I was a child but I have had dreams come true, and weird coincidences where I'll think of something and someone will say it word for word. And I'm a pretty good guesser and this one experience where I was woken up by a loud sort thump and then I heard a voice say, "What do you need?" or "Did you need something?" and I could kind of feel something in the room but that's about it. I have yet to be as receptive as my mother though. It probably doesn't help that I'm a naturally jumpy person to begin with but it's like the slightest touch from someone, or the littlest noise can send me shooting in the air.

So how do can I get past these fears so that I might reconnect with my abilities, and how do I know it's not just all in my head?

well, your not alone. This happens to me all the time. There are people yes, people as in more then one person who watch me at night. They're names are Scotty, Ralphy, Stella, and Kevin. The only one I knoew when they were living was Kevin. He was/is my uncle. They watch over me. They know about my powers. They each take turns watching me. Scotty really gets a kick out of it. He thinks its really funny when I talk to myself. (yeah, I do. Its a habbit). I know its kind of weird but its true. But be carefull. Your visitors may not be as kind as mine ie:they could be demons/evil spirits.
Hope this helps you feel a bit better.

Little power hungry are we? Lol.

Me and my friend were friends in past lives and part of some organization that killed to help the world. We remember being about to kill some corrupt priest and we have both had visions of a great battle between God and Satan. So suffice to say, we are different and I know what you're going through. It'll get better don't worry.

Dont take to things far now, I think you can save people but don't be so unreal, TV and other things rot the brain. Live in the real world. Some of what you see there has some truth, but not even half of it is real. Like in realtity you realy don't want to mess with aything dangerous unless you know what your doing, and most dont.

Reddork, I have always felt different, but never realy felt this until recently, I do totaly feel like asomething far apart from other people. Like as you say. Its great to be a little super human but it can be so alien. I don't do things like others. I still have tons of friends and fam, and a close friend who had abitlities as well. And we know many who have had at least one strong experience. But I feal more like a freak because I have several abitlities and ALLOT of dark and evil spirit trouble. They mostly like to bother me. And let me know there htere. There imposing will doesn't always get them what they want. I usualy get a little scared but shake it off and keep doing what I'm doingt I am a tough guy whos been in a lot of danger in many ways.

I'm also afraid of what's in the dark. To tell the truth, I sleep with the light on.

I have been told to 'ground' myself before going to bed. I have been told to imagine I'm like an old oak tree with my roots in the ground. I also surround myself in white light and pray (to anyone who'll listen) asking to be left alone. So far this has worked. Maybe you should try this.

I found your story very comforting firefly, I too am in the same boat and I haven't changed much from when I was 15. I'm now 25 with 3 sons and when things go bump in the night I'm paralyzed with fear. Sad to say I can't even check on my children because that fear is so overpowering. However I'm here to make an effort to get over my fear so that I can use my own abilities to it's full potential because I truly believe that fear hinders our abilities. I just wanted you to know your not alone, it's not childish and if it is well then I got you beat as the biggest baby because I'm 25 years old and go through the same thing regularly. We'll get through it when we're ready. ❤

Oh wow. That's exactly what I say to people. I 'm not afraid of the dark, I'm afraid of what's in the dark. :) I think it's easier to tell yourself that you're not scared when you're in the light. It's nothing to be ashamed of.

I believe what you are experiencing is the abilty to sense spirt. Try to remember that they don't meen to scare and are proberly loved ones trying to show they love you. If you are still woried by this just talk to them, either aloud or in your head, and explain you arent ready for this and you want them to leave you alone because they are scaring you. Hopefully this should help.

I know how you feel. I was afraid of ghosts and the dark and things like that, but what you have to think when you are going to bed, is this. How many people have been attacked by ghosts? (and none is the answer) I freak myself out sometimes, too, thinking things like that. And, if you want to hone your abilities, you will see things more often then not and come to accept them. It gets better after a while I promise. It worked for me, so it should work for you. I have only just got over the fact about ghosts about a month ago! Before that, I was also afraid. Don't worry, things will get better if you take my advice 😊

Hi I believe in the spirit world. I see things strange things in the dark. You are jumpy person so if someone comes up behind you it can scare you am I write. I don't think your ready for this kind of thing telling you the truth. You have to be brave and not be scared of the dark. I'm not being nasty or anything but its the truth. Ghosts can come unexpectedly they come out not at the right time. Are you ready just to turn your back for one second then turn back round and see a ghost staring straight at you! NO I don't think your ready not just yet. You need to take steps one would have to be helping you stop being scared of the dark. If your scared of the dark you will be scared of strange and creepy things. My bad dreams come true. I have been through loads in my life. Starting from the age of 2 years old when I knew things before they happened later on in life and my past. Ghost also pick the person to go to for help and that. Some people just won't ever see one or they just don't have a gift. Not everyone can see them and have a gift. You have to be lucky to have a gift. Its up to the ghosts who they want to go too. You can't just say I want to see a ghost because its not that easy and simple. I didn't decide. God decided who should have gifts who should be born with gifts. I didn't want to see ghosts in my life but It wasn't up to me it wasn't my decision . It what I was born with I'm now used to go through these things. IT'S MY LIFE. I'm used to it now and I do enjoy going through these things it's interesting but at first I didn't like it and I thought I wouldn't be able to cope. Now I can cope and I have gotten rid of my fears. When I'm happy the ghosts come and see me. That is mostly when they come out. My dreams the bad one's come true. You should read my stories.
I have heard voices one telling me to open the door then I opened it and my nanna was just about to knock on and a other of a girl ghost/spirit. 😊
