Confront and Banish Your Fears and Weaknesses

don't be scared, confront and banish your fears and weaknesses


It was the first day at my Creative Visualization Workshop. Our Group discussion took an interesting turn when one participant asked about fears and overcoming them. Considering that we all have our own set of unique as well as collective fears, this was an important question. Getting rid of fear bugs isn’t always that easy though it can be done.

My suggestion, whether metaphysical or not is always to confront the fear or weakness by acknowledging it, analyzing it and then letting it go. The letting go part is the difficult one just as breaking a bad habit.

Think about it, our fears and weaknesses gain strength only when we give them the power to do so. That is one permission slip one should not be handing out to a bad cause, one that only creates more negative energy. 

If you want, a simple affirmation acknowledging your strength will do the trick. Imagine for a minute that you are feeling scared or fearful of a situation. Here the affirmation would be

I have the courage to tackle any obstacle I face

or while in a meditative state, invoke the quality you need

I invoke the quality of courage within me

What if stating or invoking an affirmation doesn’t help fight your fear?


God Power is greater than any fear within me


Yes, that does happen because we can keep affirming but our sub-conscious mind knows we are saying fluffy sentences. In this situation, it’s important to bring out an even stronger ally to help us by asking our Higher Self or the God-Power within you for help. Confront your fear using the Confrontation Affirmation Technique as follows:

The God-Power within me is greater than any feeling of self-doubt or fear within me. I yield my mind and body to the God-Power within me. The God-Power within me gives me the peace and power to face the situation.

I give thanks to the God-Power of my mind for giving me SELF-MASTERY!

Always begin your confrontation affirmation with the following words:

 “The God-Power within me is greater than _______ .”

Keep repeating this and attempt to feel the God-Power of your mind taking over your mind. After you have felt positive results, give thanks for Self-Mastery!


The Positive Power of Confrontation Technique

The Confrontation Technique is a great tool to overcome the negative energy of your sub-conscious mind. It is also a powerful technique to guide a person to let go of their limiting beliefs by empowering them with a sense of support from a higher power, the Universal God-Power within their mind.

Many times our biggest stumbling block towards success is our own fear or belief which while it may appear ridiculous to outsiders is very real to us. In order to move forward, we need to change our mind set and conscious affirmations may not be enough.

In other words, we need to feel the new conviction at the very core of our being. This requires support that we alone can give ourselves and the best way would be to connect with our God-Power which is more powerful than the energy of the weakness in our sub consciousness that is holding us back.  

Remember that in wanting to achieve our desires and what we want from life, there are inner forces that compete and which hold us back. There is the duality – the forces of light and dark within each of us. 

By using the Confrontation Technique, we can overcome the power of the weakness energy by connecting and bringing into our sub-consciousness the power of our true inner light of divinity. Self-mastery can be attained wherein, using this technique we can develop spiritual self-reliance by bringing forth our own God-Power instead of looking to others for help.

Have you ever tried this technique to override the games your sub-conscious mind plays with you? Let me know in the comments box below.


Happy Thanksgiving to our readers in the US! Let’s learn The Sedona Method Together!


Thanksgiving Greeting


I know you’re wondering what an Indian doing is feeling happy about Thanksgiving. Is it my childhood memories of New York with Turkey, cranberry sauce and the good old corn on the cob?


Yes, it’s an American Holiday but the concept and sentiments are universal and a dash of gratitude for all that we have never hurts. In fact, it is a message to the Universe that we appreciate all that we have and set the stage for more abundance in our lives.


Update: June 2017:

When I wrote this post in November 2016, there was a free learning festival where participants were taught The Sedona Method by Hale Dwoskin and I invited readers to avail of it. This was an awesome event and one can still download the program in mp3 format by clicking here. Please note, it is now a paid self-study program.

Hale created a very popular, professional self-study course that helps you let go of uncomfortable emotions, right on the spot, without getting stuck in them or having to figure out why you even have them.

This process works to:

  • say goodbye to fear, stress, and anxiety—even panic attacks.
  • release anger problems.
  • lose even long-standing depression.
  • get rid of chronic physical pain.
  • propel yourself to new levels of personal performance.
  • kick addictions… Lose weight… Stop smoking.

The process is called The Sedona Method,  If you are interested, please click on the image below to learn more. . In full transparency, this is an affiliate link and I might get a small sum of money if you decide to purchase the training. So go ahead and check it out!

    I do a similar thing to The Confrontation Technique using the phrase “By the power of my I Am Presence…” It really helps me to stand in my power. I love your version also, thank you so much for sharing. I have done the Sedona free training you mention here in the past by the way, and can highly recommend it. Enjoy!

    • Karmic Ally says:

      I will try your version too, Julia. I’m all for empowerment! Thanks for recommending the training. I’d read about the Sedona method and now is the perfect time to do the training while preparing for closing 2016 and entering 2017. I hope others will participate too!

      • Julia says:

        I have done several of their free “learning fests” and found each to be very valuable. I also have the qi gong program which, again, is great.

        • Karmic Ally says:

          I’ve done 2 so far, Julia, one was on Feng Shui and the other was on Auras to see if I could learn more. I’m really excited about The Sedona Method. 🙂

  2. I’m so happy you shared this information with people, Vatsala. I see how many people think that positive affirmations are their saviour, without realizing that as Bruce Lipton says in “Biology of Belief”, “One negative subconscious belief is one million times more powerful than any affirmation you can do”. So, we need to go deeper and your Confrontation Technique does just that. I am going to try your affirmation in the future when I find I am ‘stuck’. On another note, many years ago my daughter and I both did the Sedona Method in a live weekend workshop. I am sure you will really enjoy it and how wonderful that it is now available as an online course. Enjoy it!

    • Karmic Ally says:

      Thanks for endorsing The Sedona Method, Beverley. I remember reading about it first in one of your blog posts and had it marked down for my own self improvement studies and now, I’ve penciled in time to do it. The Confrontation Technique works much better than saying affirmations that we really don’t believe in subconsciously.

      • Stella Chiu says:

        Hi, Karmic

        You are right indeed, verbal affirmation doesn’t work all the time. When our subconscious mind is stronger than anything else.

        The confrontation technique is powerful tool when we realize we house the God’s power inside. We are given the authority to fight back any force coming against us.

        Love the post, Karmic.

        Happy holidays!

        Stella Chiu

        • Karmic Ally says:

          Thanks Stella. When we accept the God Power within us, then no fear or limiting belief can stop us from achieving our true potential. Happy Holidays!

  3. Really enjoyed your article Vatsala, and your method makes perfect sense. While I’ve never personally attended a Sedona Method workshop I know people who have and they speak very highly of it, so I’m sure you’ll enjoy it!

  4. Suzie Cheel says:

    I have done the Sedona Method course many years ago. Very powerful. I totally agree with you about affirmations. o often out subconscious kicks in and says No You Are not- Confrontation Technique looks interesting. I have another process that i use that i learned from my mentor Michael Losier which I teach . thanks for the great post xx

    • Karmic Ally says:

      Our sub-conscious mind can be such a party pooper if we aren’t alert, Suzie. Best way is to gently control it and remove inner blocks that prevent us from raising our vibration and manifesting what we really want from life.

  5. Vanessa says:

    Love, LOVE, LOVE the Sedona Method. We share it with our clients as well and I will pass on this free training. What a fabulous gift!

    • Karmic Ally says:

      Thanks Vanessa. It’s been on my list of training to participate in for my own personal and professional development and I do want others to benefit as well.

  6. I love that. The Divine in me is stronger than my fear. Than my financial reality. Than my worries. I need this reminder. Thank you.

    • Karmic Ally says:

      You are most welcome, Sue. Sometimes we need to be reminded that we aren’t alone. The Divine is with us every step of the way.

  7. You are so right about fear. Fear can freeze us in our tracks. But, as you point out in your blog, we do have the courage to tackle any obstacle we face and this blog shows us how. Thanks.

    • Karmic Ally says:

      Time to unfreeze and achieve our true potential, Kathleen. Thanks for dropping by The Karmic Ally Coaching Experience Blog!

  8. Reba Linker says:

    Thank you for this beautiful post, Vatsala. It is so important to remember that we have the power to face and vanquish our fears. Thank you for this reminder and for being an inspiration!

    • Karmic Ally says:

      My pleasure Reba. We often forget that we have the power to vanquish our fears. A reminder every now and then helps. 🙂

I believe the world would be a better place if high achieving professionals accepted setbacks and challenges to their careers as Wake Up Calls to embark on a Journey where their empowered course correcting actions create a New World Order that encompasses achieving their career aspirations & potential with authentic life balance.

I work with driven, passionate, talented and ambitious professionals who’ve hit a speed breaker in their business or career create their desired breakthrough reclaiming control of their situation with customized strategies and tactics that deliver results.

When my clients first reach out to me, they are not in a very happy place, needing clarity about themselves, their desires, chosen vocation and what will give them peace of mind. They are drawn to me for the very reasons that I highlight in Who Is Karmic Ally Coaching.

Their professional problems are playing havoc with other areas of their life. They know they need to take radical steps to change the status quo but they also know they need support and accountability to get them their desired result.

I really get it, because I’ve experienced that dark night of the Soul. I know firsthand the outcome of getting lost in my work rationalizing decisions that were detrimental to other aspects of my life.

I’ve struggled with and won battles of stress management, corporate politics, life balance and career decisions to emerge in a place where I can confidently say that I live my desired life according to my personal Manifesto and have created a business that provides me with a platform for my desired lifestyle and self-expression for myself. I want that for you too!
