1. Promo: Hello and welcome to Healing fear and anxiety. Fear is normal. It's a survival instinct. We all get afraid. But what happens when our fear is disproportional to any real threat? And what if that perceived fear creates anxiety attacks, phobias, and behaviors that are out of context with the situation at hand. And Eve further, what if the hysteria of all our collective fear gets blown up through some sort of media. How do we stay sane and create inner peace when there's so much uncertainty? Hello, I'm Joseph Drumheller. I've been a clinical hypnotherapist since 1991. And I spent six years perfecting my craft by working in a cancer radiation clinic. I'm also a four time award-winning author. And I felt numerous clients and students overcome their fear and replace it with column.

It's my hope that this course will help guide you through this era of transition in a state of peace. So thanks so much for your interest in this course. Take the bold step and enroll in this course. Now, I'll see you in class. 2. Intro: Hello and welcome to the introduction for healing fear and anxiety. Before we get started, I'd like to make a few recommendations before we dive into the course. First, do the course as it's laid out from day one through day 12. What we'll be doing is training your mind to work differently. So it takes some time to assimilate that into your subconscious mind. Also, if it's possible find someone else or a group of people to take the course with. Support is a huge component in overcoming anxiety. Find a friend, a family member, or even a coach to take the class width. Success tends to increase with support. So try not to go it alone. And don't hesitate to reach out to other students on this platform. Day may be able to provide answers, insights, and encouragement that are just beyond your reach. Remember, they're interested in the same thing you are. Namely finding inner peace and improving the quality of life. So thanks once again for your interest in this course. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to shoot them my way because I love hearing from my students. So I wish you the very best in this course. And on your healing journey, I'll see you in class. 3. The Basics - Breath: Hello and welcome to the lecture on meditation for breath. Now there's a saying in some spiritual circles that goes where there is breath, there is life. And if you think about it, it's true, because once you stop breathing, it's time to check out of this Earth plane. So what we're gonna do in this meditation is gonna be very, very simple. Also going to do is focus on our breath as we breathe in through our nose and out through her mouth. It's very, very simple technique. You can learn it in a few minutes, but it's one of those tricky things that takes a lifetime to master. So during this meditation, you may have distracting thoughts that come in. So what we're gonna do is we're gonna just allow those toe happen. We're going to observe those thoughts and just let it drift in and float by like clouds as we breathe. And as we relax and towards in this meditation, I'm gonna add a couple of words and some religious traditions. These air, called mantra is, and so I like to use the words sun and moon. So on the in breath it'll be sons will be Sun Moon on the Exhale. So in was son, not with Moon. So that's all there is to it. This is a very simple and beautiful meditation, and it's gonna help you relax very deeply. So without any further ado, let's head to the meditation and I'll see you there. 4. Meditation - Breath: and get yourself situated in a nice position in their lie down or remain seated, whichever is most comfortable for you. Just get yourself nice and comfortable, and when you're ready, just close your eyes. Take a few deep cleansing breaths and just begin to let go and relax. And as we begin, I'd like you to imagine yourself wrapped in a cocoon of blue light. Just imagine it for a few moments. If you could feel it, that's even better. But just allow yourself to sink into that presence. Wonderful blue protective light as we begin our meditation. So what I would like you to do now is to just pay attention to your breath and breathe and relax. Gently breathe in and breathe out, using no effort at all. Just breathe in and breathe out, breathing in, breathing out, just focusing on your breath, breathing in and breathing out. And if any thoughts or distractions come while you're breathing, just allowed them to come in and to let go. Just observe them as you would clouds drifting by in the sky as you breathe in, and as you breathe out with breathing out, focusing on your breath as you breathe in and as you breathe out, just continue that for a few moments on your own, in silence, breathing in, breathing out. No. And his I pre then. And as I breathe out, I like to say a word to myself in silence as I breathe in. And does I breathe out a word I say as I breathe in this son, son. And as I breathe out, I say moon breathing in, son breathing out son san, Just continue to breathe in an hour on your own for as long as you'd like. And when you're ready, you can release this meditation. Come back to the waking world. 5. How to Use the Contemplation: Hello and welcome to the lecture entitled How to Use the Contemplation. The exercise following this lecture is a contemplation to assist you in gaining insight into releasing fear and creating peace. The contemplation will give you the opportunity to reflect and perhaps shift your perception in regard to your fear. The contemplation also differs slightly from the meditation. So allow me to explain this forest, Fear goes, it's important to acknowledge that everyone processes internal information differently. For some, meditations are the way to go because the medications take them deep into the subconscious mind. Open the doors for profound healing. That's great. However, some lines are more suited for contemplation because there are more reflective and more cerebral. So if your inclination is a little more mental, then I've included a contemplation for you. And of course, some people are comfortable with both contemplation and meditation. So if you're of that variety, then enjoy both. The first difference with contemplation, you'll notice, is that it can be done with your eyes open or your eyes closed, whichever is most comfortable for you. Then the contemplation will lead you through a series of relaxed questions to help gain deeper awareness into your thinking. So please keep in mind that the questions are not designed for you to think and rationally figure out solutions to your situation. Instead, their enquiries thrown out to the universe in a state of relaxation. When your mind is calm, wisdom will provide the answers and insights you may not have considered before. You may have intuitive flashes of clarity known as ah ha moments. Or perhaps the questions will trigger healing sensations of energy in your body. But no matter what happens, it will be your job to relax, pay attention and to allow the process to unfold. Also, if you do experience moments of insight, awareness or healing, it's a clear indication that the contemplation is a technique that works for you. If that's the case, keep using it regularly. Then, once you've mastered the contemplation, you'll be primed and ready for the deeper meditations that follow. Okay, that's it for this brief discussion on contemplation. Let's go there now and explore. I'll see you there 6. Contemplation - Releasing Fear: thank you for joining me today and allowing me to assist you on your road to peace. Let's start by relaxing deeply. Take a few deep slow breaths until you feel completely second. - Take a moment to be aware of your fear. Where do you feel it in your body? If you could put a word or two on your fear, what would it be? And what if this fear was on Lee? From images and emotions that no longer exist? I come from somewhere long in your past. - What if you could release those fearful feelings by simply relaxing, observing and detaching? How would your life change if those feelings were allowed to dissolve into your past? - What would it be like if you had a loving, spiritually guide who knew everything about you, including how to release your fear? What would that do to your fear? - What would it be like if you could return to the past to where your fear was created? And what if you could simply release that fear into that passed and allow it to release from your body? Your mind? No, uh, what would it be like if you were free from the influences of fear. How would that change? The way you think what you say and what you do Take a moment to imagine your life without fear you. 7. The Importance of Deep Relaxation: Hello and welcome to the lecture on the importance of deep relaxation. When you're deeply relaxed, the subconscious mind will open up, exposing suppressed emotions from the past. Once those emotions are exposed, they can be safely and effortlessly released using numerous healing techniques that it's absolutely imperative to learn and master the initial step, which is deep relaxation. So the first thing to understand is that learning how to deeply relaxed is a learned skill. So this is important. So let me say it again. Learning how to deeply relaxed is a learned skill. So like anything else that's worth learning, it takes practice, it takes commitment, and it takes discipline. Now, with that said, let me remind you that the discipline of learning how to relax deeply is a very pleasant discipline. It feels great. So setting time aside to do it is something you can look forward to. So let's look a little deeper and ask a few questions about deep relaxation. The first one is, how often should I practice deep relaxation? Well, if you're just starting out, I highly recommend doing it daily. For most people, the most convenient times, R the first thing in the morning or just before going to bed in the evening. So I meditate every evening for about 15 minutes or so before I go to that. Also, if you're starting out, I suggest using some type of guided relaxation, audio or video, such as the meditations in this course. It's much easier when someone guides you through the process. Plus the results tend to be much more noticeable, insignificant, with the help of a guide. So the next question that I'd like to throw out there is, what are the benefits of deep relaxation? As you progress and developing your own relaxation practice, relaxation will start to become part of your subconscious. That means relaxation will become interwoven into the fabric of your being, which is a really great thing. When that happens, you'll be able to enter a relaxed state at will. So like when you're standing in line at the grocery store, driving your car during breaks at work or at school, or even in the middle of a challenging conversation. So another way to say it is learning to relax will reduce your overall level of stress. Also, as you master the art of deep relaxation, the techniques in this course will become much more effective. In the following relaxation exercise. We'll be using a technique referred to as progressive relaxation. It's a simple guided meditation that directs you to relax your entire body. So use this meditation regularly and start opening up the channels to integrate relaxation into the fabric of your being. Okay, so that's it for this lecture. So I'll see at the relaxation exercise. 8. Exercise - Progressive Relaxation: before we get started, I would like you to do is see their sick, their spine erect. Lie in a comfortable position, close your eyes and take a deep breath. So as we began, what I would like you to do is to imagine if you can, that there is a beam of golden light coming down in through the top of your head. Very relaxing. It's very warm. It's very peaceful and just allow this tremendous light to penetrate your brain so your brain starts to relax on your thoughts. Start to slow down and your brain becomes very deeply relaxed. Very calm, very peaceful. And does your brain becomes more and more relaxed? Allow this wave of relax ation in this peaceful light to begin to move its way down your spine so it moves into the stem of your brain and slowly works its way down all the way down to the tip of your spine and feel this. Relax ation as it extends out from your spine and into your nerves so that this relax ation extends all the way out to the ends of your nervous system so that from the top of your head all the way out to the tip of each nerve. You're very deeply relaxed. You're very calm, and you're totally at peace. No, bring the awareness of this. Relax ation back to the top of your head and allow it to begin to drift over the outside of your body so you can actually feel it in your scalp and in your hair. And you could feel the relax ation as it gently moves into your temples in your forehead, slowly moving into your ears and your eyes down your nose into your cheekbones, your jaw on all the muscles of your face. And you can feel this. Relax ation as it slowly penetrates into your lips, your teeth, your tongue in your entire mouth so that your entire head is very deeply relaxed, very calm and totally at peace. Feel the relaxation as it continues by moving down into your neck and into your throat, solely working its way down into your shoulders, and you can feel your arms as they begin to become very heavy. Aziz. The relax ation moves down your arms into your biceps, your triceps, your elbows, your forearms and out to your hands to the tip of each finger and each done from the top of your head away, down to the tips of your fingers. You're very deeply relaxed. You're very calm, and you're totally at peace. And it feels so nice all right to be so deeply relaxed. Now allow this. Relax ation to drift back to your shoulders as you feel it, beginning to move down into your back so the muscles of your back begin to relax and unwind . You could feel the tension of your back starting to drain away. Your back becomes so peaceful, so relaxed as the relax ation drifts all the way from your shoulders away down to your lower back. And you can allow this relaxation to begin to drift inwards from your back into your torso so you can actually feel your internal organs beginning to relax. To slow down. To function in perfect peace and harmony, you can feel the relax ation moving into your heart. Your heart begins to open and beat in perfect peace. Assess the relax ation drifts out into your lungs into the center of your breath so you breathe without effort. With every breath you take, you become more and more deeply relax, and you can feel the relax ation continuing by moving into all of your other internal organs your intestines, your stomach, your liver. So everything's functioning perfectly and peacefully. As the relax ation moves down, your waist slowly begins to move down into your lower body. You can feel your legs has it become increasingly heavy, and as your legs become heavier and heavier and more and more deeply relaxed, you can feel this peaceful relaxation drifting into your thighs down into your knees, your shins and your cab's, but only down. It's here to the tip each toe, so that from the top of your head, all the way down to the tips of your toes, you're very deeply relaxed. You're very calm, and you're totally at peace and just allow this relaxation to sink deeply into your subconscious. It becomes interwoven into the fabric of your being. So enjoy the state of relaxation for as long as you like. There's absolutely no hurry. When you feel like you're done. I feel like you've had enough. You can slowly open your eyes and gently drift back in to the conscious work way 9. Afraid to Secure: So what's the name of this next? The name of the section coming up is called from Afraid and anxious to peaceful, Insecure. So we're gonna be looking at fear and the reality or non reality of here. All of it. Yeah. So some boogeyman fear Israel, but sometimes is generated from the past a little bit. So we're gonna discuss the difference there. Have you helped e? I have I've So everything from my test anxiety. One woman I worked with I remember she came in and choose in junior college and she is just freaking out over the test she had to take and she came in one session was all it waas. She was good. She Eyster test and she wanted to get her master's degrees. That's really great. Yes, I also phobias like people afraid to fly anxiety attacks I've had really good luck with, mainly because of anxiety. Attacks are really easy to find because the rate on the surface and turns over releasing them and then a little bit with PTSD. Not a lot, but enough then, PTSD is a really serious form of anxiety attack. Based on some major trauma in the past, So is it okay to be afraid? I mean, like, for me, I have a big fear of rattlesnakes and a big furry spiders. Fear is absolutely normal. Yeah, it's OK. It's perfectly fine to be afraid. So based on our personality types or even a fight or flight, when there is a, um, a threat to our survival, and so that's it is ingrained into its in our DNA. It's in our hardwire. However, most of the fear that we experience is not due to a threat to our survival or to our health or life and death situation. So that means that that fear comes from somewhere else. And where does it come from? Come from somewhere inside. So not yeah, So the fear is this thing. It's Ah, it's a phantom, in a way, kind of like our ancestors being afraid of sabertooth tigers. That's right, exactly. But when there's no saber tooth tigers out there than the fears coming from someplace else Yeah, uh, word is most fear come from well, a lot of fear that we experience comes from trauma based in our past. And for most of it, if we experience trauma when we're young. When we're very young, it will create a subconscious response deep inside of our psyche. And that was fears will live and remain there. And as we grow older, those will be projected out into our present based on our past. So they may not have anything to do with the president there just a repeating pattern based on a fear that we've had in the past. And so when we get into projecting those into our present that actually start to create our future. So so that's where some of our fear comes from, comes from from trauma based in the past. And even though the initial event is gone, that that created the fear, the fear still remains. And so it's kind of an unusual dynamic, and I kind of wonder, How does that actually happen? How how can that be? So I just how does Okay, So when we have a traumatic experience or something fearful in the past, what happens is that based on the nature of emotion, that emotion is born to be experienced. It and so none of us want Teoh experience uncomfortable fear. So are uncomfortable emotions, especially fear. And so what we do is we tend to annoyingly and automatically avoid those fearful experiences. And so what happens when we do that? The emotion cannot live. It's full life cycle, so it gets stuck into our subconscious, where it lives and remains, Um, kind of like a little creature. And then, at some point in the future, in our lives, that fear is going to come back to life. It's because it wants out. It wants to be experience, and so will start to create scenarios in our lives. Where we'll be able to experience our fear over and over again is. And as we continue to avoid our fear, um, we will continue to see the repeating pattern. That's only when we step into our fear or through our fear or acknowledge and address our fear, Um, that we can step through it and step past it and have it no longer affect us. So it is. It's a tough life lesson. So to overcome your fear, you have to step into your fear. You have to face it on, and everyone who grows beyond any station they are in life has had had to experience that we have to experience. At some point. I mean, everybody gets kicked out of the nest At some point. Everyone has to stand on their own two feet, so everyone has to face that fear. Get out of our comfort zone and push right through. That's one way. That is one way. So, um, how can the meditation help? Well, actually, let's step back to the last question. See if fear's even real. Okay, so So, technically, when we're not talking about fear, that is a direct threat to our survival. Is that fears Tech? Technically, it's not even really so. It's on Lee on emotion and a picture, that mental picture that's based on the past. And so what happens is that we're recreate creating a re experiencing those past events in the present moment. And when we do that, it starts to becoming a self fulfilling prophecy because that's what we start to create in our future. So, um, and even though it's technically not riel, those emotions and those pictures can be exceptionally strong, and what they do is that they influence our decision making in our behavior so they actually will control the events of our lives. Even though they're technically not physically riel. That's kind of interesting. Dynamic fear. Yeah, it is. So fear is kind of a smokescreen. You know, it's fear and scary. It's it's scared to face it. It's scarier to get into it. But once you get into it, a lot of times you could get past it. You can get through it. A lot of this not intentionally are not consciously so it's been on its on a subconscious level, so it's really not our fault. It's because it's outside of our awareness. Meditation can help with this exactly. So. So one way meditation could help fear. So is like even in the fear for our survival. Just by going into a deeply relaxed state, even when there's a real threat to us, we can, you know, slower heart rate down and slow your mind down and kind of manage our fear in that way. But when it's based in the past, we can actually go into a deeply relaxed state, address the fear directly, feel it or experience it, and quite honestly can effortlessly let it go in your in a deeply relaxed state. And when the fear is gone, those emotions that accompany them tend to be released also. So that could be quite powerful, actually. Well, for this meditation, do I need to do anything? Yeah, this one's a little different. So in this meditation, we're going to be addressing fear. And so, um, I know based on personal experience, I've experienced anxiety attacks myself and, uh, you know, some strong fear. So I know that when you go into facing your fear, it's scary, right? Because you're facing fear. Yeah. So, um, so in this meditation, I'm gonna ask, even though it's through a through technology and through a video that I'm really gonna ask that as you watch this video that you actually allow me to take you through its I'm asking you to trust me, because I've done this a lot, Um, And to allow me to protect you and to take you through this experience, and it doesn't mean we have to delve into the depths of your fear because we can all have different levels of fear that we're ready to experience it, but let me to take you whatever it is you're comfortably ready to handle and let go of and just allow me to take you through the process. And when we get into the meditative state, I will have helpers and tools that can make things more secure and comfortable. And we come out. The other side will hopefully feel safe, secure, and that is something that you can take with you into the future. So let's go and do it and let's go to meditation. Okay. Thank you. 10. Meditation for Healing - Afraid to Secure: hello and welcome to the meditation on releasing fear. And before we get started, what I'd like to say is that I know that facing your fear can be kind of scary because after all, we are dealing with fear. And so what I'm gonna ask you to do is to allow me to lead the meditation to provide a safe and comfortable environment for you and to really let me protect you and lead you through this process. And also keep in the back of your mind that as we're meditating and doing some healing work that you don't need to deal with, all your fear it once you can listen to this video over and over again and just take on little bits at a time. So what? That said, what I'd like you to do is to get yourself comfortable and will begin to relax. So let's just start by closing your eyes and taking a very few deep breath all the way down to your toes. Prevent. Couldn't breathe out and just begin to let go and to allow the cares of the day to begin to slip away, coming calm, peaceful and relax, breathing and relaxing, feeling calm and at ease. And as we begin, what I would like to do is to tell you a little story. Now, you're welcome to listen to this story if you'd like. But the whole purpose of this story is to just help you to deeply relax. Not too long ago, maybe in the 19 sixties. Or maybe it was in the 19 eighties, there was a doctor, a doctor from Europe. I believe he was from Sweden and he experimented. He experimented with the way that babies were born. And what have you learned was that babies like to be born in a safe and comfortable and relaxing environment where they're protected, taking care of some babies like to be born in a warm pool of water where they could be held , protected and taking care of not frightened, no bright lights, just a quiet, calm and safe environment. And what the doctor learned over the years is that when babies are born in this way, they seem calm, confident, relax, trusting, and some of them seem very happy. They would smile and rest in the warm back up, and over the years they grew up to be happier and safer and more secure, very similar to the ways that animals are born when their mothers give birth on a warm spring evening when it's safe to be born and they takes the babys toe, lie in the grass and to be very call very safe, even if danger is near. And the babies grow up to be more well adjusted and happier playing in the grass as they know that their parents are nearby, watching and protecting so they can go in the business of playing without care, without effort and without concern in the very same way when babies are born in a warm, soothing back. Were there resting and being cared for so they can begin a life being secure, safe and protected.

Age Regression: Hello and look into the lecture on the introduction to the age regression meditation. It's not always necessary, but there are times, and finding the root cause to a problem can produce enormous therapeutic benefit. So what we'll do is we'll start by relaxing deeply. And then when you've identified your emotion of interest, you'll imagine yourself going back in time to the first time when you experienced it. If nothing comes what's okay? Then you can just pretend, and then when you get there, will ask the question. Is this a new feeling or a familiar feeling? I felt before and now, at that point you have to do is trust your answer. And if your answer is, I felt it before that won't continue to go back in time, and we'll repeat the process until the answer is This feeling is new, which means you'll be at the first time it ever happened. And you may have end up somewhere you never expected, like in your crib or in your mother's womb or some place that makes no sense. So don't worry about those details, but just trust the process. And then once we've identified the initial event will simply release the emotion and allow it to dissolve into the past. Then we'll continue to relax and observe the emotion until it's gone.

He asked me to join him as he took his boat out to sail on the living sea. Never in my life had I sailed before. And I can only imagine how adventuresome and magical it would be. And as we pulled out from the dock, a breeze kicked up as if by magic to welcomeness onto a seascape that was more vast than the imagination itself. As I hoisted the sale, I felt the dominion of the wind. As a powered our craft, cutting effortlessly. As the breeze chilled my skin and blew through my hair.

It's a word that can't really be grasped by many other similar words. Like peaceful, calm, or serine, or effortless, tranquil, soothing, or RESTful. And some of my favorite relaxing words are very often found in nature. Like a gentle sky or a placid Lake. A cool breeze, or the stillness of night. And sometimes an image can capture the same feeling. Like a silver moon. Or a motionless or the majesty of a glorious mountain peak, or the divinity of an incredible sunset. The words and the images are all leading us to that sacred space that we all have. Deep down inside. Where we are at one end. And then E is in a state of plus four. In serine piece.
