Ep04 – Guided Meditation for Overcoming Fears

Welcome to Episode 4 of Empowering Meditations with James Cole.

It’s Halloween so I thought it would be a great time to create a guided meditation to overcome fear.

First up, if you wanted to have an offline version of this meditation without the distracting intro and outro, you can purchase and download an MP3 audio file for only $3 from our Guided Meditation store – https://empoweringmeditations.com/em0004

Is it time to let go of the fear that is holding you back?

What better time to confront and overcome your fears.

Topics Covered:

  • Fear
  • How to change relationships between neurons
  • How to let go of fear

This powerful meditation takes a very different approach to overcome fear. Fear comes in so many different variations and even the same fear can differ dramatically from person to person. In this meditation, I want to focus on a general relationship with fear rather than a fear of a specific thing.

If you are interested, let me know and I may do some specific phobia busting meditations in the future.

Not all fear is specific

Some people have a very general, non-specific fear that can really hold them back in life. Every opportunity can become fuzzy and blurred with doubt, every idea of becoming better requires stepping way too far outside of their comfort zone.

Wouldn’t it be nice to let go and conquer fear and gain the courage and strength to break out of the dark creepy forest that is holding you back in life?

How to let go of fear

To do this, one of the best ways is to go back in our minds to the first moment fear ever entered into our awareness. Then resolve and heal any issues we have around the event that caused it.

If you have seen previous episodes, you’ll remember how the unconscious mind works with metaphor as its language. With this in mind, it is important when asked to go back to the first event, to allow your mind go wherever it wants to. Sometimes this will go back to an event in early childhood that you clearly remember, and other times it may go back to something that is totally created. Whatever it is, know that it’s the right scenario for your unconscious mind to gain the resolution it needs.

I’ve known some people to go back into past lives or previous generations and I remember when I first did a similar meditation, I went back to a time in my mother’s womb, where I felt afraid of the unknown world I could hear outside. Whether this is real or not is irrelevant, whatever our mind conjures up in the moment is what we need to have the best resolution.

Go back to where the fear began

When wanting to change something in our unconscious minds, the best approach is to first activate the neurons in our brain that are responsible for whatever it is we want to change. The best way to activate the neurons associated with fear is to not only think about what you fear but to really feel that fear. Once these neurons associated with fear are activated, then we can work on changing your relationship with them. It is by changing our relationship with that which we fear that allows us to release fear and let it go.

This form of meditation can be quite intensive and although you will feel lighter once the issues have been dealt with, it is important to be gentle to yourself as it may take several days to fully integrate into your system.

Benefits of this guided meditation:

  • By activating fear related neurons first, will have a far greater effect at changing your relationship with fear.
  • Will help you to let go of the fear that is holding you back in life.
  • Will boost your courage and emotional strength.
  • Can also help reduce anxieties.
  • Helps you become more self-aware.
  • Overcoming fear can super-charge your life.
  • Can be used to entertain the imagination.


This meditation is designed to induce fear responses as part of the process. If for any reason you feel that you aren’t physically or mentally able to deal with this, then do not listen to it.
This is not a light and fluffy relaxation meditation. It is filled with nightmarish visions and will be far from relaxing.

By listening to this audio, you accept all responsibility for its correct use or misuse. It is highly recommended that you don’t listen to this meditation at all. The horrors inside may cause permanent horrible transformations to take place. Because this meditation will place you in a deep trance from which you may never return, it’s important that you never listen to this, especially if you’re driving, operating machinery such as chainsaws or doing anything that requires your full attention. If an emergency should arise that requires your attention, such as a maniac breaking through your door, you can be instantly alert, awake, energised and able to deal with whatever is required, however, you deem fit. There are no safe places and your comfort is of no concern.
