How to Overcome the Fear of Destruction in a Smart Way

Fear of destruction is a common human emotion. The thought of losing everything we hold dear can be paralyzing, leaving us feeling vulnerable and anxious.

However, it's important to remember that our souls are immortal and cannot be destroyed by any evil force. By understanding and embracing this concept, we can find the strength to overcome our fear of destruction.

Know the Monster: the Fear of Destruction

Before we start pacifying the fear of destruction, know the monster. Answer, in writing, the following questions:

  • What does destruction mean to you?

  • Why are you afraid?

Have you finished? In the case of struggling, I will give you some clues of what destruction can be and why we are afraid of it.

What Is Destruction?

In most cases, destruction means death, especially while being tortured or murdered inhumanly.

Sometimes destruction of your ego by criticism or humiliation can cause pain. No one likes to lose face and respect.

The destruction of material goods or your dear ones (e.g. the murder of your child by gangsters) can be also traumatic.

There is also autodestruction by addictions and negative thinking. This one is usually neglected or the consequence of external destruction. negative thinking also attracts external destruction.

Why Are You Afraid of Destruction?

Firstly, because you will lose your control over your life. By dying, for whatever reason (illness, old age or violence) you know that your body ends its journey and your mind as well. There is an antidote to this kind of thinking and I will write about it below.

Secondly, you are afraid of pain. Yes. any kind of destruction is painful. We do not like leaving our comfort zone. The pain may be physical (injury, murder, physical tortures), mental (ego bruising) or spiritual (when your soul is tormented by negative beings).

The Immortality of the Soul

On one hand, throughout history, various cultures and religions have believed in the soul's immortality.

However, many religions teach us to believe that there is only one life and death ends in one state. Moreover, because of that belief, we are afraid of dying and any pain.

More reading about reincarnation:

Whether it's the concept of the afterlife, reincarnation, or spiritual transcendence, the idea remains the same: our souls are eternal. This belief provides comfort and reassurance that even in the face of destruction, our essence will continue to exist.

By acknowledging the immortality of the soul, we can shift our perspective on destruction. Instead of viewing it as an end, we can see it as a transformation or a new beginning.

This understanding allows us to approach life with courage and resilience, knowing that no matter what happens, our souls will endure.

Creation versus Destruction

Also, according to the universal Law of Change, everything evolves through the process of birth and death. Look at the cycles on Earth: the lunar cycle, the menstrual cycle or the seasons:

The Moon waxes and wanes, the same happens with the lining of the uterus. Plants grow, bloom and wither. Our body, in this life, also undergoes this process.

Also, your genes are immortal. You can lose one body but DNA will be replaced in the next generation.

So why be afraid of destruction, when you know that there will be rebirth?

How to Eradicate the Fear of Destruction

Now I will give you some advice on how to eradicate the fear of destruction. As with each fear, this one can also be destroyed and transformed as mental states and emotions also undergo the cycle of change.

1. Embrace the Impermanence of the Physical World

Knowing that change and evolution are constant and inevitable, it will be easier for you to embrace the impermanence of the physical world.

Rather than clinging to these temporary aspects of life, we can focus on cultivating inner qualities that are not bound by time or destruction. And here we come to the spiritual domain of life.

Instead of seeking security in external circumstances, we can find solace in our own inner strength, wisdom, and love. These qualities are not dependent on external factors and can withstand any form of destruction.

By shifting our focus from the external to the internal, we can find a sense of stability and peace that transcends the fear of destruction.

2. Disarm Your Mental Resistance

However, you may argue that the physical world is more important. It happens because the ego as the mechanism of the mind, dreads being destroyed by conscious work on growth.

So what can you do to disarm fears:

  • Know the monster: The fear of destruction covers other things you are afraid of loss, pain and the fact that you might be redundant in the contemporary world.

  • Disarm the monster. You can do it by the formula:

If I'm afraid of ... then what? Will I disappear at all?

Transform the monster. Fear is the opposite of love. Sometimes love requires the sacrifice of destroying your ego, material resources, or even your physical life for something greater. Think about the soldiers dying for a country or a mother dying during the labour to give birth to the new being.

3. Focus on Something Opposite

Tee Law of Focus teaches us that whatever we dwell on, grows. So the more you dread destruction, the more probable is that it will happen.

Remember that fear is the reaction of your mind. It can come from external sources i.e. other beings' minds, also done by artificial ways like mind control), or internal ones (your programmed cells - the cellular memory).

So what can you do to shift your attitude from destruction to something else?

Practise Mindfulness

Mindfulness and gratitude are powerful tools for overcoming fear and cultivating a sense of peace.

By practising mindfulness, we can train our minds to stay present in the moment, rather than dwelling on fears of the future or regrets of the past. This allows us to fully appreciate and experience the beauty and joy that exists in our lives right now.

Focusing on the present shifts your mindset to the 'now'. You create the future from this perspective.

Practise Gratitude

Gratitude is another essential practice that can help us overcome the fear of destruction. By focusing on the blessings and abundance in your life, you shift your attention away from what may be lost and instead appreciate what you have.

Cultivating a mindset of gratitude allows you to find contentment and joy, regardless of external circumstances.

4. Connecting with Something Greater

Lastly, connecting with something greater than yourself can provide a sense of comfort and security. Whether through religious or spiritual practices, nature, or a sense of community, finding a connection to something beyond your existence can help alleviate the fear of destruction.

When you recognize that you are part of a larger tapestry of life, it is easier to realize that your individual experiences are just a small piece of the grander whole. This perspective can bring a sense of peace and purpose, knowing that our actions and contributions have significance beyond our limited understanding.

5. Reprogram Your Mind

Shifting to something opposite may be a temporary process, but still, it can help you to reprogram your mind. However, to transform the fear of destruction for good, you need a long-term strategy.

Reprogram Your Cells

Neuroplasticity is becoming very popular now. You can erase the old patterns saved in your cells and program new ones.

Cells grow and die so every day you can record a new program to them, replacing the old one. Every day your new cells ask you 'Will you program us to creation or to destruction? What do you want us to do for you?'

Use affirmations and visualisation, combined with tapping (EFT) to record a new script to your cells every day.

Reprogram Your Subconscious Mind

Many fears come from your subconscious mind which not only stores data from this life but also all the experiences that happened in your past incarnations.

Therefore, fear of destruction is also enrooted subconsciously. However, you can reprogram your subconscious mind by regular training. Combined physical, mental and spiritual tools can make wonders. What can you do?

  • Combine EFT with affirmations and journaling. Tap the EFT point with affirming: first the problem, then self-acceptance and self-love, then choose a different state.

  • Meditate (more below). it can be just mental practice o relaxation or you can connect with Higher Beings and the Universe.

  • Bodywork - NLP programming that reframes submodalities of the fear. identify where in the body you dread destruction. Then focus on the opposite state of consciousness, e.g. courage and identify the parts of the body where it is felt. Next, reprogram the parts of your body which generate fear of destruction with new submodalities.

Reprogram Your Ego

It is another mechanism that sabotages your mental well-being. This is your internal voice, also known as inner critic. it will discourage you from leaving your comfort zone and taking any action that means progress and growth. The ego only bothers with survival.

I have written two articles helping people to cope with their egos. Ad this mental program manifests in three ways (lack, control and attachment), you need to address each of them separately at the same time.

For example, for a couple of days (preferably 5), record all the situations when you did not want to let things go, had low self-esteem and did not want to lose something. These are the times when your ego kicks on. Then disarm the ago by answering these questions, preferably in writing:

What is the worst thing that will happen if I lose control here (e.g let other people do the work I am doing now)?
Is it true that I cannot do without... (my car, house, spouse, money...)?
How can I transform this lack into wholeness (e.g. lack of money, loneliness)?

You can also pacify the fear of destruction by writing and later reading this affirmation aloud:

I now choose the courage and willingness to act and create my ideal life.

Hypnosis is a technique that allows you to access your subconscious mind and make positive changes on a deep level. It can be a powerful tool for overcoming fear and reprogramming your mind to think more positively.

During a hypnosis session, a trained hypnotist will guide you into a relaxed state and then provide positive suggestions to your subconscious mind. These suggestions can help you reframe your thoughts about destruction and replace them with more empowering beliefs.

For example, if you constantly worry about losing everything you have, a hypnotist might suggest that you can rebuild and recover from any loss. Over time, these suggestions can help you rewire your brain and reduce the fear of destruction.
