When Saint Patrick came to Ireland and banished the snakes, no one said what are you on about. No one pointed out that snakes were not native to or even known in Ireland. Because we got the concept – it is good to banish what it is not real.
Fears and doubts feel real, but they are only manifestations of your mind. Mindful practices are a way to take back control over your thoughts, and to see those snakes off.
If you want to learn some techniques from modern psychology and from the wisdom of the ancient Irish mind-set then there are plenty in my book by time is everything revealed.
