Utilize the Law of Substitution.  Replace fear thoughts with faith thoughts.  One way to do that is to memorize verses that inspire you.

Memorize scripture, like the one I just said:  “God has not given us a spirit of fear but the power of love and a sound mind.”

Memorize verses from books that inspire you, that give you faith and courage.

Memorize affirmations, prayers that help you, so that when you can saturate your mind–your subconscious mind–with positive, power producing thoughts…when you feed your mind those thoughts…what happens?  They come to you when you most need them. Don’t they?

How many of you were in those situations when all of a sudden it just came right to you what you needed to know?  A faith thought, right? Because you did the work and planted them in there.

Take a chant that’s uplifting, take a song that’s uplifting…Yogananda said, chanting is half the battle… chanting a song and let it sink in…fill you… It’s simple but powerful.  Simple but powerful.

Swami Satchidananda  used to say: “Truth is as simple as a flower growing by the side of the road.”  It is simple… it is simple…not always easy but it’s simple.

Truth is simple.  Saturate your mind, your subconscious mind, with power producing thoughts and ideas  that will come to your aid.

Charles Fillmore, co-founder of Unity had a prayer that I’d like you to say with me.  Please repeat with me, this wonderful prayer:

I am now free from fear, anxiety, dread and suspense… (free from fear, anxiety, dread and suspense..)

I have faith in your Holy Spirit…(faith in your Holy Spirit…)

I trust you to protect me, to provide for me and to bring all my affairs into Divine Order.

I am now free from fear. (..and take this into yourself.)  

I am now free from fear, anxiety, dread and suspense.

I have faith in your Holy Spirit.

I trust you to protect me, to provide for me and to bring all my affairs into Divine Order.

Doesn’t that give you a sense of peace and calm and quiet the storms of fear in your own mind?

Substitute fear thoughts with faith thoughts.
