Do Not Fear Shadows

October 11, 2012  by: Paulose  Points: 15   Category: Health    Views: 644

Fear of shadows is very distressing. It causes many health problems. It creates more fear in you. If you switch on the light the fear goes away.


Have you ever experienced the fear of shadows? Have you screamed in the darkness of night looking at some shadow? It happens at night, when you wake up suddenly and happens to feel something moving in the corner of your eye. Most of us fear darkness. We fear shadows moving in darkness.But when we switch on the light and look at the same thing, the fear is gone. Sometimes there may not be anything at all!

Fear of darkness

Fear of darkness is a common phenomenon, especially among children and, to some extend in adults. Fear of the dark is usually not fear of the darkness itself, but fear of some possible or imagined dangers connected with it. Some psychologists and researchers say that fear of darkness or shadows is an inner psychological problem or a manifestation of separation anxiety disorder.

Fear of unknown

We are often afraid of the dark and shadows because of some unknown factor. The emotion of fear is triggered by the subconscious mind in order to protect you from some unknown danger. It is designed in the subconscious mind for survival. Our mind thinks of evil things that can harm us. The fear increases as long as we stay in darkness with the shadow. That makes you restless and sleepless. Unless you are cleared of that shadow with the help of light, you cannot be peaceful.

Modern man’s fear of shadows

Modern human life is more fearful than any other time in history. Today, with all the advanced facilities in our life, it is difficult to imagine a life not invoking some form of fear. Man is more frightened with fear of terrorism, fear of diseases, fear of pain, and fear of death. Fear of distrust attacks him with the shadows of misunderstanding. There is fear of hopelessness, sorrow and despair everywhere.

The man who repeatedly says not to fear

There was a man, living on this earth, who repeatedly tells us not to be afraid of anything. When nature turned furious and frightened the passengers in the boat, he rebuked them for their fear saying, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” (Matthew 7). He brought back calmness. “Be not afraid,” were his repeated words every time. He always insisted to cast away all fears and worries.

His word is the lamp of light that casts away every fear
If we have a lamp of light, why should we fear of darkness? The Bible says, “Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.” (Psalm 119:105) King David was strengthened with God’s words. “Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” (Psalm 23:4)

Reading and meditating the Word of God can cast away all fears of shadows and increase our faith in God who can free us from all fears.
