Overcome Fears with a Visit to the Cemetery

You can overcome your fears if you’re motivated. One way to give yourself a boost of motivation is to visit a cemetery.

Pick any cemetery in your town, or visit one in neighboring town if you’d like to make a day of it. You don’t need to know anyone buried there. Bring your journal. Maybe bring some flowers.

Walk respectfully down the rows of headstones and follow your intuition. Pause periodically to change direction and read a few of the headstones. Pick one that moves you. Then take a deep breath and talk to the person buried there.

You could confide about your problem, your fears, whatever you’re holding back. And then listen. Does this person have any advice for you? Write down in your journal how you feel and any insights you receive. If you brought flowers, leave them at the headstone and give thanks.

The point of this exercise is to give you a shift in perspective. By communing with someone whose time is up, you may realize how precious your time is. Do you want to spend your time being stuck with fear, or making your dreams come true?
