Affirmations to free ourselves from the grip of fear
"I trust my true fears to give me signals of real danger. I see I have also unreal fears and worries. More and more I recognise the difference between real and imagined fears.
I feel compassion towards myself for all the years I have been afraid. I forgive those who hypnotised me to unreal fears.
I trust that I have as much fearlessness in me as fear. I trust the strength that opens in me when I have to face something. I believe in myself as able to handle what comes my way.
I create a pause between a trigger and my response. I have the inner resources to handle any fear or trigger. I find support inside and outside myself.
I have an enormous capacity for rebuilding, restoring and recovering from fear. I am more and more sure of my abilities.
I’m more and more aware of how I hold fear in my body. I relax the parts of my body that hold fear. I am freeing my body from the grip of fear. I open my body to joy and serenity.

I catch myself when I engage in paranoid phantasies and let them go. I trust in myself as releasing me from fear and fearsome phantasies. I let go of regretting my mistakes. I find the path to going on. I’m letting go of basing my decisions on fear.
I let go of finding something to fear in everything. I let go of believing that everything is dangerous and headed for disaster.
I see the humour in my exaggerated reactions to unreal dangers. I find a humours response to every irrational fear. I smile at my scared ego and shrug off its fears.
I let go of my fear of aloneness, or of time on my hands. I let go of my fear of abandonment. I let go of my fear of closeness. I let go of my fear of commitment. I let go of my fear of being vulnerable in relationships. I let go of my fear of giving and receiving. I let go of my fear of loving and being loved.
I let go of the believe I have to measure up to what others want me to be. I give up having to be perfect.
I let go of my performance fears. I let go of my sexual fears. I’m confident in my ability to deal with people and situations that scare me.
I let go of my fear of any person. I let go fo the fear of what they can do to me. I let go of my fear of saying "no" to others. I let go of my fear to say "yes".
I cease to be intimidated by others anger. I’m giving up trying to appease those who intimidate me. Attempts to bully me now fall flat. I let go of being under defence.
I protect myself while always being committed to non-violence. I stick to my guns and I hold my fire.
I let go of feeling obliged to do things his, her and their way. I let go of the need to fulfil others expectations.
I state and protect my personal boundaries. I let go of my fear of what might happen if people dislike me. I let go of my terror about disapproval, ridicule, exclusion or rejection.
I dare to stop auditioning for peoples approval or love. I give up the need to correct peoples impression of me. I give up my poses, pretences and posturings. I dare to be myself.
I dare to show my hand. To show my passions. To show my enthusiasms. To show my real feelings, longings and needs.
I want my every word, feeling and deed to reveal me how I truly am. I give up of being afraid of what I really want. I ask for what I want. I love being found out, caught in the act of being my authentic self.
I dare to live my life that truly reflects my deepest needs and wishes. I let go of the fear that I loose: „Loose money, loose face, loose freedom, loose friends, loose respect, loose status, loose my job, loose out.“
I let go of my fear of having to grief. I let go of fears about my inadequacy as a partner or friend. I let go of my fear of the fearsome givings of life: impermanence, change, suffering, unfairness, failed plans, losses, betrayals.
I’m flexible enough to accept life as it is. I am forgiving enough to accept how I have lived my life so far. I trust my present predicament as a path. I let go of control. I let the chips fall where they may. I let go of more than any fate can take away of me.
I cease to be afraid of my own power. I cease to be afraid of the power of others. I let go of my fear of authority. I speak truth to authority and power.
I dare to take a stand for the oppressed and the marginalised. I join the most vulnerable of our society. I dare to devote my life to co-creating a world of justice, peace and love. As I show courage for social justice I notice I’m letting go of fear in all areas of my life.

I show grace under pressure. I stop running, I stop hiding. I meet danger face to face. I stand up to a fight. I speak up for myself and others.
I let go of hesitation and self-doubt. I notice primitive dreads in me: „If I love something, I will loose something, or it will be taken away. If something is good, it will not last. What is bad will get worse.“ I recognise these believes as superstitions and let go of the fears that support them.
I take risks and yet I act with responsibility and caring. I keep finding alternatives behind the apparent dead-end of fear.
I let go of scanning my life to find a reason to be afraid. More and more my fears become healthy excitements. I let fear go and let joy in. I let fear go and let love in.
I’m grateful for the love that awaits me everywhere I go. I know I’m deeply loved by many people near and far.
I feel lovingly held by a higher power. As I devote myself more and more to a higher power than myself, I feel it alive through, with and in me.
I believe that I have an important destiny and that I am living in accord with it. I’m more and more aware of others fears. More and more sensitive to them. More and more compassionate toward them.
I enlarge my circle of love to include every living being. I keep finding ways to show my love. I’m great-hearted and bold-spirited.
I let go of ill will to those who have hurt me. I do good to those who hate me, bless those who curse me. Pray and wish enlightenment to those who have mistreated me. I can say „ouch“ and open a dialogue rather than retaliate.
I dare to give myself unconditionally and I dare to be unconditionally committed to maintain my own boundaries. I honour and evoke my animal powers, my human powers and my divine powers.
I set free my love till now imprisoned by fear. I set free my joy till inhibited by fear. I let true love cast out fear. May I always choose the path of gentle love. The best antidote to fear.
I say yes to wthat happens to me today as an opportunity to love more and fear less. I keep letting go and I keep going on.
I feel an enduring fearlessness awakening in me. I keep affirming my freedom from fear. I’m thankful for the grace of finding freedom from fear. May all beings find freedom from fear."
