Pleasantly I am surprised to read in Haanel the assertion that fear needs to be completely eliminated. “the arch enemy of the Solar Plexus,
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear) but He has given us a spirit of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind with discipline and self-control. 2 Tim 2:7
Fear is the most destructive and desperate force in the universe as it focuses on self-preservation by cutting itself of the only Power of Love that has created and highly empowered self to be all they can be. God (the universe) has is not competitive as there are no limits; all of us on this planet can be spiritual, social, emotional, mental, fiscal millionaires if we are enlarging our footprint and our internal propensity to grow spiritually.
I grew up with both, experience of abundance and experience of fear. My mother, a Holocaust survivor, inadvertently related stories of horror and despondency to us, as only she and her sister survived as they were kids during that hellish quagmire. I remember hearing something about Russia wanting to take Germany and we kids were hiding under our bed with blankets so that they would not see us if they came. Yet we lived in Munich in great comfort and luxury and nothing should have stopped our resolve to explore and thrive. Fear caused me to hide in myself and become very rebellious. Not until I went to college and studied psychology and social pedagogy did I awake to tremendous insight and strength. Even now, I am still struggling with fear occasionally, and have learned to speak The Word to dispel all darkness and spider webs of perpetual uneasiness. The Cure for Anxiety: 25 “For this reason I say to you, [a]do not be worried about your [b]life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the [c]air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? 27 And who of you by being worried canadd a single [d]hour to his [e]life? 28 And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, 29 yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. 30 But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you? You of little faith! 31 Do not worry then, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear for clothing?’ 32 For the Gentiles eagerly seek all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But [f]seek first[g]His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be[h]added to you.
Now, not to worry, or be anxious, does not mean sitting idly waiting for the necessities of life simply to appear. This is where we need to become “a candidate for increase” (KCM) FAST.
Apart from a wealth of biblical promises, which I will dwell on later, the techniques of concentrated focused thought and confession energy promise to be conducive to manifestation. However, WITHOUT FEAR, but with FULL FAITH AND CREDIT. The power is already within us, as it is written: “Now to Him Who, by in consequence of the action of His power that is at work within us, is able to abundantly, far over and above all that we war to ask or think, infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes or dreams, to Him be the glory. EPH 3:20.
This is a power infusion to break through to the hindrances of fear and fog to the mountain top of uninhibited victory and freedom.
