Breaking Through The Illusion of Fear

Feb 3, 2015 | Mind, Personal Development, Spirit

This scene from the movie Divergent is a very apt depiction of how fear cripples us – until we discover that it’s completely illusory.

The entire plot of this scene is that she is in a simulation that projects to her realistic situations based on her own worst fears, and she must learn how to overcome them, which she does each time by realizing that it’s not REAL.

The simulation takes emotions, which are abstract feelings and projects them into your mind as possible real life situations – but it’s all in your head.


The glass walls of the tank are fear-based beliefs. The water that appears to be drowning you are emotions which are trapped inside by those beliefs.

You try to see what’s on the other side of the glass, but what you really see is just your own reflection – the fear that you’re holding inside, being projected outward.

When you stop and you realize this isn’t real – this fear isn’t real, then you’re able to shatter the glass with the touch of a fingertip. You shatter those fear-based beliefs, the wall comes down and all of those emotions that were once drowning you are released. And you are free.

Fear is not real. Break through the illusion.

My first reaction to the reading was WOW. Your words captured a theme woven into my life right now. The reading has emboldened me to take back my power and inspired me to research some books, get back to meditating and provided a focus.
