    a) Fear of pain is just SECONDARY FEAR

    b) but fear of threatening, distressing emotions, feelings and thoughts is PRIMARY FEAR

    c) and, last but not least, fear of fear is TERTIARY FEAR

    OK ?

    Fear is our own individual illusions as we define it. I say yes to your question cause its your definition.. I'm working with my own illusions and will share how I define my different sources of fear. These definitions are not my own, however, what I work with to identify the particular fear on a granular level.

    1. Resistance to change/Generally relates to an existing habit, program and/or stubbornness.
    2.Fear of change/ Generally relates to the fear of the unknown
    3. Secondary gain/ Is when there's a payoff for keeping the resistances or issue
    4. Social conditioning/ Is perceived or real pressure from outside influences (i.e. Family/society).This also relates to fear of resistance to letting go of anything outside of your control.
