Have you experience fear while using magick? I have a fear of seeing spirits. I do not see them, but I think of them just made me scared. I am doing magick for knowlegde. Any one has overcome there fear?...
Yeah, I've been scared. But that fear went away. I'm no longer scared of doing what I do because I know the intricacies of what I'm getting into. In other words, I am not afraid because I understand what scared me before.
You should ask yourself what makes you scared of seeing spirits. Also, research more about spirits. A lot of your fear might be fear of the unknown which can be combated by learning.
On my first spell, a lucky charm (which failed) I was a bit nervous because it was my first attempt. I didn't even know the basics neither if the spell was correct. I felt that because I didn't know what to expect, I'm not sure if had even understand how magick works, back then. Later I discovered how it works and that I should start from the basics in order to cast spells succesfully. I don't cast spells though...but they're needed for anything related to magic. You can avoid back-fires if you use the basics properly. You just have to become familiar with it and realize if you use magic properly, nothing bad is going to happen to you.
About spirits as Risha said, ks the fear of the uknown. It's logical to be afraid to see them, they're non-physical entities... I used to be afraid of them when I was younger, about 3-4 years ago I was reading stories on internet about people using Ouijas, contacting them and I was very scared..I was even scared if a spirit was around me. As years were passing I learnt more and I became familiar with them... I haven't seen one yet, but they don't scare me (I'm not sure of my reaction when I see them, but I don't think it'll be negative...). I realized they are souls like us and sooner or later you'll be one too... Of course there are spirits who will try to scare you...but that shouldn't hold you back, spirit world is amazing and there are entities that want to help and support you... Now, I'm dying to use a Ouija and if I read stories on internet I won't get afraid, but excited.
when you have better understanding of spirits, you wont have fear. you must open you mind and have understanding.
Quote: you fear that you do not understand.
form an understanding about them, open your mind that there are indeed other realities besides us on earth.
fear is something you create. did you know that if you meet a wild bear in nature, it will probably attack you, why?
because the bear is scared of you and attacks you out of fear.
it has probably never seen humans before. imagine you are the bear and meeting something you have never seen before (spirits) you will have fear indeed.
but if you have seen it before and understand it, you wont have reason to fear it.
Anthony, that is a very complex question without any context whatsoever.
If you are talking about an irrational fear such as a fear of heights (irrational in the sense of having a phobia without some trauma or other actual reason for that phobia), there are methods of confronting the object of that phobia and becoming desensitized.
If you mean a rational fear, that is a phobia caused by some event (s) in one's past or current situation, there are some similar methods but that again opens up myriad possibilities depending upon the reason for the fear.
If it is a reactionary fear or situational anxiety, which (again depending on specifics) is something which can be faced through courage, then you have the answer. Courage is doing what must be done despite fear. Courageous people are still afraid -- even terrified -- even when boldly charging to their own deaths.
