He Said, She Said: Angus Doesn't Have to Conquer Fear to Experience More Peace of Mind

Angus Doesn’t Have to Conquer Fear to Experience More Peace of Mind

Angus has a fear of heights, but what he has noticed is that the initial fear isn’t so bad as long as he doesn’t add-on additional anxious thoughts to his experience. We use this Vlog to test out his hypothesis by walking over the Deception Pass bridge. Angus has the initial lizard brain activation of anxiety, but he is able to ignore the extraneous thoughts that are calling for his attention and doesn’t get stuck on the bridge unable to move. Hopefully, this vlog will help all of us to see where we can ignore our thinking when it is not serving us and experience greater peace of mind as a result.


Rohini and Angus are both coaches. They work with individuals, leaders, and organizations to increase performance and success. They also love working with couples and helping them reduce conflict and discord so they can experience more love and harmony in their relationships. They co-facilitate individualized three-day couples intensives that support the deepening of connection and understanding. They work with couples who are struggling and couples who would like to deepen the love and intimacy they already have. Rohini is the author of Marriage (The Soul-Centered Series Book 1) and founder of The Soul-Centered Series: Psychology, Spirituality and the Teachings of Sydney Banks being offered in Santa Monica, California starting October 2018.

    This was incredibly helpful and a wonderful reminder about how not to run away from or identify with thought/feeling. I get claustrophobic and know that overwhelming feeling of fear. But in highlighting these very specific fears it helps me to get more insight into how much we go round creating our day-to-day lives in our heads all the time and how not to get attached to that.
    Big kudos to you Angus for this video.

      Hi Jane, Thank you so much for sharing. I get claustrophobic too at times. I have found what Angus shared very helpful for those moments too. I can ride them out more gracefully when I just stay with the lit match and let it burn out itself out. Love that you are experiencing more freedom!
