  • “Will I Lose My Home?” How to End the Fear that is Way Too Prevalent Right Now

    Since August 2007, lenders have repossessed more than 770,000 U.S. homes. This year, 304,000 homes were in default and 91,000 families lost their homes in August alone, according to a report by RealtyTrac, an online marketer of foreclosure properties.

    Between the economic slowdown, job losses, falling housing prices and rising adjustable-rate mortgages, many people are worried about becoming one of these statistics.

    In fact, only 7 percent of Americans feel that 'nothing is at risk' for them personally during this financial crisis, according to the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. Meanwhile, one in three (34 percent) see their jobs, homes and investments as vulnerable and at risk of being lost.

    Another survey conducted by Harris Interactive and commissioned by the American Bar Association found that among people with a mortgage, 43 percent said they have some level of concern that they will lose their home because they are unable to make mortgage payments. Of them:

    * 10 percent say they are extremely concerned about losing their home
    * 7 percent say they are very concerned
    * 26 percent say they are somewhat concerned

    People with lower levels of income appear to be hardest hit, as more than 50 percent of people with incomes of $74,000 or less were concerned about losing their homes to foreclosure.

    If you are worried about losing your home right now, there’s a silver lining that you should know: fearing that you may lose your home, and actually losing it, are two entirely different things.

    How to Stop Identifying With Fears of Losing Your Home

    Every time you worry about being able to pay your mortgage, you are holding in your mind exactly what you don’t want. You are, in fact, acting as though it is true and happening, when in reality it’s only true in your mind. Or more specifically, you’re making it seem true in your mind.

    “Let's face it, these are tough times. However, no matter how bad your financial situation is, if you allow yourself to maintain a positive state of mind there are always ways to find a solution,” says Hale Dwoskin, CEO and director of training of Sedona Training Associates.

    'The best solution I know is releasing using The Sedona Method,' he continues. 'When you catch yourself thinking the worst remember this is being generated by an unaddressed or suppressed feeling. If you're willing to welcome the feeling and then choose to let it go everything is possible.'

    In other words, even if your finances are tight right now, focusing on a fear of losing your home will do you no good. To the contrary, it will actually keep you in a vicious cycle of fear that could paralyze you and keep you from making the right decisions and actions to improve your situation. When you learn to release your fear, and therefore get your mind into a more positive, confident state, you’ll not only feel better, you’ll act smarter.

    “The more you let go the calmer you’ll be and the clearer your mind will become,” Dwoskin says. “A foggy mind creates poor decisions. A clear mind should help you know what to do and what not to do even when life is in turmoil.”

    The idea is to stop identifying with the feelings of scarcity, anxiety, loss and fear that are coloring your world. Instead, you want to envision your life as complete and remind yourself that you have all that you need, and there is enough money, food, and shelter to go around. To get started, please take advantage of this Free Sedona Method Financial Stress Release, and pass it along to your friends and family who also want to dissolve their financial stress for good.

    Then, try out this simple financial fear release from Hale Dwoskin:

    * In this moment when you think of the current world financial situation and your own personal financial situation could you allow yourself to welcome having fear?
    * Could you also welcome any desire to fix or change it?
    * Now as best you can, could you just simply let go?

    “Do this often,” he says, “and your whole life will turn around.”
