What Is Fear In Its Essence?

Fear is ultimately just a feeling. We’re not born afraid. Throughout life, we learn either by conditioning or experience that some things have a high risk of bad consequences so we become afraid of them. In psychology, fear is a stimulus that is triggered when a threat is detected. This triggers the fear response in the amygdala (a part of the brain) that gets the body ready to either fight or escape.

Some fears are so deeply rooted that they trick the brain into thinking that the fear is more than a feeling, that it can never be changed. This then makes the fear subconsciously control actions and reactions. For example, you might subconsciously sabotage every new relationship because deep inside, you’re afraid of getting heartbroken and think it is unavoidable.

​If you noticed the apple first, then your worst conscious fear is death. This existential fear is actually quite common as it has the power to impact our entire identity. You may not think of death in your every waking second, but knowing that it inevitably waits for you one day can be enough to make you endlessly and aimlessly search for meaning. You may find yourself always grasping for something more and craving validation as if the more you have or the more people like you, the less likely you are to die.

Similar to the imagery of Adam eating an apple from the forbidden tree, you may feel unsatisfied being alone, and hope that if you have to face death then you can at least do it in good company. Your relationships are important to you, and you feel attached to everyone you come to care about. You’re loyal, sometimes overly so, and forgiving. You want others to feel loved by you the same way you hope to be by them. You can’t bear the thought of losing anyone you love.

If you felt attracted to the butterfly first then your subconscious fear is betrayal. Butterflies are quite symbolic. The butterfly effect explains how every action has a reaction, is associated with the past, and is often synonymous with the image of being reborn. For you, you’ve been hurt enough times by others that you believe that the butterfly effect will always be against you, that every action will have a bad reaction for you.

This leaves you often feeling stuck and unable to let go. In a way, you betray yourself because you hold yourself back from flying away from situations that no longer serve you. Ironically this puts you at more of a disadvantage of being betrayed by others.

​If you noticed the caterpillar first then your subconscious fear is the unknown or the paranormal. The fear of ghosts, spirits, and anything beyond our world that we don’t understand is also known as phasmophobia. Maybe you feel a shiver when doors slam around you or you get bad feelings during thunderstorms. It’s possible that you can’t sleep at night because you feel like you’re not alone.

In reality, you’re actually just open-minded and you’re open to the possibility that there’s more to this world than we understand but this lack of understanding also causes you to fear because you don’t know how to control or prepare for it. This also makes you question bigger picture factors like your purpose here, or what happens after you die which adds additional levels to your fear.

If you chose the knife, your subconscious fear is a terminal illness. You fear being taken away or having someone leave you before it’s their time. You can’t stand suffering and seeing those you care about in pain without being able to do anything about it. If you’re the one to get terminally ill you can’t live with the idea of not having control over it. It goes against your proactive and nurturing nature.

You wish you could predict how you were to die or at least know for sure that it would be peaceful. The older you get, and the more you see your health deteriorate, the harder it is to accept that you’re losing your ability to function to your potential. You’re quite independent and full of life and adventure and can’t bear the idea of losing it all, especially if suddenly.
