Day 1 Fear
There is a reason why we begin with fear. So often we allow fear to run our lives. Think about it. Nothing—absolutely nothing—is wrong, but something sets you off, and you start being fearful of something that hasn’t happened and likely won’t. Seemingly out of the clear blue sky, you start worrying about the bills. You start obsessing about your job. Maybe your boss doesn’t really like you. Or maybe your coworker is sabotaging you. Your mind runs with this for a while. Possibly your fear takes the form of worry about your children. Johnny’s B minus on a math test might be setting him up for a life of underachievement. Sophie’s been dealing with some middle school girl problems, and you worry that her self-esteem will be permanently damaged. Then, of course, there’s always your health. You wake up in the morning with a headache, are sure it’s a tumor. Before you know it, you’ve become a sick, unemployed, poor parent, all in your mind. Whatever your particular fears are, they serve to constrict you and make your whole field of energy narrow.
Fear begets fear. Call to mind the image of a garden. What happens if we don’t weed a garden? If we don’t tend to it, our entire garden—all of those carefully cultivated rosebushes and peonies and daylilies—becomes overgrown. Roots become strangled, cut off from the source. Before you know it, all that beauty vanishes. Fear is an energy. It is an experience. But holding on to fear is unique to our human nature. Consider this: Every living being feels its fear and shakes it off. Cows, deer, fox, even bears—they all feel fear and move on. But we human beings don’t. We accumulate fear. We hoard and store it in our bodies. We go out of our way to prove to ourselves that the world is not a safe place. Of course, there is an evolutionary place for fear—after all, it allows us to survive—but we let it run amok. And then it keeps us locked into place. Perhaps we stay in unsatisfying jobs or in bad relationships out of fear that something greater is not on its way. All the time we’re doing that, we’re invalidating the universal principle of more. The grass continues to grow. Rivers continue to flow into the sea. Galaxies are born. Life seemingly has a way of continuing to evolve into more. Everything in nature validates this principle.
We need to find our courage, which, of course, is not the absence of fear but rather the willingness to feel the fear and move forward anyway. Fear isn’t going to kill us. It’s an energy that we can allow to move through us.
Tend to the garden of your unconscious mind. Imagine yourself in a house surrounded by an absolutely beautiful garden. The only problem is that the garden has been overtaken by fear. Fear—of financial loss, of being alone, of illness, you name it—has taken the form of weeds. Go out of the house and tend to that garden. Visualize yourself on your knees, putting on your gardening gloves, pulling out your fear by its roots. What do we have here? Abandonment? Betrayal? Rejection? Death? It’s all about the energy. This is a radical idea, I know—but your fears cannot hurt you. Pull out your first weed. The weeds are your vibrational density. Think of them as a mass of tangles. Dirty, all knotted up. What happens next? Here, your story doesn’t matter. The specifics of who, what, where, when, and why are beside the point. You’re pulling out the energy of fear. Just the energy—that’s all. When that mass of tangles is uprooted, suddenly there’s space. It won’t necessarily feel comfortable. But stop for a minute. What does it feel like? Maybe there’s a little more room now. Perhaps there’s the beginning of new opportunity. In time, we will know. In giving fear our attention, it loses its power over us. The weeds aren’t wrong or bad. They’re just taking up space.
Perhaps you read the “Morning” passage while sitting at your kitchen table, grabbing a quick breakfast, a cup of coffee. Or maybe you were already on the train. Or in your car, driving to work as you listened to these words on an audiobook. Wherever you found yourself, I now want you to train your heart and mind—your awareness—on the energy of fear as it appears throughout your day. Each time today that fear arises within you—and make no mistake, it will arise—make note of it. Fear is your ground zero.
Typically, we manage our daily fears in one of three ways:
We stand our ground and fight.
Or we freeze.
You might be anticipating the homework assignment that requires you to read two hundred pages by tomorrow. Or the results of a pathology report. Or the business project that requires you to leave your wife and babies and travel halfway around the world to secure a contract. The first day of a new job. A first date. Opening a bill, terrified that you don’t have the money to cover it. Life and life situations will call us out on our fear, every single time. And when this happens, the most primitive part of the brain takes over. The part of us that fights, flees, or freezes comes from our base animalistic response to the energy of fear. Everything in the natural world does this in the presence of fear. (Unless of course you’re a possum, in which case you play dead.) This happens whether or not there is a legitimate threat. Our muscles contract. Our breathing becomes shallow. Our palms dampen. Our pupils enlarge. Our blood leaves our extremities and pools in the center.
So what do you do? You learn to allow. You have a familiar place you retreat to as a result of your fear. Get to know the place. Perhaps it’s a set behavior, a pattern that you use to compensate for the presence of this uncomfortable energy. Maybe for you it’s denial. Or egoic compensation. Arrogance. Distraction. Withdrawal. Introversion. The fridge. The bar.
We all have our survival mechanisms. For me, I go to that puffed-up place: You’re not going to mess with me. I once again become that kid in London who had to develop bravado in order to survive. I can be in a business meeting, surrounded by people who know a lot more than I do about the subject at hand, but if I don’t like the way things are going, I tend to fall back on false strength. I feel as if I need to be larger than life. This is an old way of adapting, of trying to survive. I have to learn, again and again, to catch myself in that behavior and stop. Trust. Notice. And allow the fear to run through me like a river out to sea.
So just for today, notice the special place you go when you start to experience fear. Does your ego begin to assert itself? Or do you want to hide? Do you reach for something to distract you? Do you become oblivious and shut down? Or do you try to numb it out? Do you reach for a cigarette, or your phone, or check your email for the five hundredth time? Or perhaps you’ll choose not to engage. You’ll pull the rug over your head and hope the moment passes.
Notice. Keep an eye out. It may happen only once today or a hundred times. It doesn’t matter. There is immense power in the ability to catch yourself, to observe your own instinctive responses and behavior. And when you do notice, meet yourself with absolute love. The awareness signals the end of the fight. Not to say that your reptilian brain won’t snake its way in a new direction. After all, that’s what snakes do. But once you train your mind to notice what it’s doing, fear will lose its stranglehold.
Until now, the invisible force of fear has been your constant companion. It has...

Zum Aufbau des Buches: Jeder Tag und damit jedes Kapitel geht auf ein bestimmtes Thema ein, dem man besonderes Bewusstsein widmet: z.B. Wut, Schuld, 'ich bin nicht gut genug', Harmonie, Dankbarkeit, Liebe etc. Jeder Tag wiederum ist in kurze Passagen für Morgen, Mittag und Nacht geteilt - optimal, um das Bewusstsein des Themas voll wirken zu lassen. Ganz toll auch das zusätzliche Angebot auf Panaches Website, das die einzelnen Tage mit 'Arbeitsmaterial' etc. ergänzt.

This is not a book to read in an afternoon. It is broken up in small pieces to devour on a daily basis. In fact, it is divided in three parts each day. It takes less than 5 minutes in the morning, again around noon and lastly in the evening. It allows you the ability to take a deep look at each human emotion or state of being and to feel it either by memories of the past or at least recognize it within your experience(s) of the day.
It is a process to uncover what may be in the way of living your true vibrational self.
The science of Quantum Physics has proven many times how everything is vibrational energy including us. If you are willing to discover, to take a chance then I recommend you pick up this book and connect with the website [...]. The extra bonuses and reading other peoples views in the forum gives you (at least it does for me) an overwhelming knowing that you are not alone, which has a calming effect on its own and a determination to take action.
Currently I am on day 5 & there is a lot more to this book to uncover. I have already gone back to previous chapters because I began with a blaze of speed, which is my past norm. In doing so I read portions so quickly that I did not allow it to resonate deep within me. I now take my time with each section, sometimes reading it more than once and allow it to permeate my soul. In just a short time I have come to realize that when I read a section that does not feel like it is me, it is probably more about me than I want to admit.
Panache was born & raised in London, England and you read it in his expressions and humor. (I seem to be drawn to the dry subtlety of English humor.) Panache opens up his own past to show us we are all human. The past is past, no going back. The opportunity to be different is now, right now in this moment.
Read this book from its very beginning and then take your time each day to read the sections as it is intentionally laid out. Start whenever you start and go at your own paste. Be open to wash away that which is hindering your natural born vibrational energy of Love. After all, we are vibrational energy in human form.
Panache, thank you for this labor of love. You have already touched so many lives, this is going to blow it out of the water. Bravo!!
Desai is the real deal. He shares his truth: when you love yourself fully, your life changes. I love this man, his energy, his words of wisdom, but most of all his human being-ness that clothes his spiritual being. Desai brings true meaning and energy to the American Indian saying: "I am on the path of becoming fully human -- a human be-ing."
Thank you Panache for sharing your light and energy with the world.
