Reduce the Fear of Death
Long Term Effects of Fear
A persistent lack of escape routes from danger lead to the insistent fear signals of anxiety, which raise heart rate and blood pressure over time. Such conditions are believed to lead to heart palpitations, fatigue, nausea, chest pain, shortness of breath, stomach aches, or headaches.
Escalating fear signals trigger panic attacks, which have indications similar to the symptoms of heart attacks. Anxiety over the years has been linked to health issues, including arthritis, migraines, allergies, stomach ulcers and thyroid disease.
Causes of Fear – Inherited, Acquired & The Unknown
The amygdala triggers fear signals, which drive you to escape from danger. It responds to three types of events:
1. The first inherited set of circuits fire on identifying historically harmful events.
2. The second group of neurons develop LTP circuits, which learn to fire on identifying events, which accompanied painful experiences.
3. The last group of circuits trigger fear, when the system is unable to identify the impact of an event.

The Fear of Unknown
The human mind recognizes the impact of an event in less than 300 milliseconds. When the system is unable to identify the significance of an event, fear is triggered by the amygdala.
Without the actual experience of such events, people fear death. When fear envelops you for a reason you are unable to fathom, it is useful to list the issues, which bother you.
You will find that by locating the cause of such fear and facing up to it will free you from the emotion.
