Description

Can you remember a time when you felt truly fearless? When you knew, without a doubt, that the world was safe? Can you ever remember feeling completely liberated from the undercurrent of discontent, anxiety, or suffering that’s so prevalent in modern life? For the average person, consistently experiencing that kind of freedom sounds like wishful thinking. Life’s hardships can create a sense of foreboding that’s hard to shake. But the truth is that most fears and anxieties are really just paper tigers.


Paper tigers are the thoughts and experiences that conjure up dread, but that don’t present any real danger. Missed deadlines, traffic jams, conflict with a loved one, and arguments with the boss create the same physiological responses in the human body that our ancestors experienced when they were stalked by predators on the plains. In the modern world, however, those responses are unwarranted. They’re neurological “misfires” that wreak havoc on our mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing, all in an effort to keep us “safe.”


The Paper Tiger Syndrome is a guidebook on the journey of healing and self-repair, which demonstrates that the most direct way to overcome fear, stress, and trauma in your life is to regulate your physical body. In here, the author—a trauma survivor herself—shares her own inspirational story to show you what’s possible and helps you understand how to regain control so you can freely live again.


Based largely on the principles of somatic therapy, The Paper Tiger Syndrome provides specific exercises and tools to help you walk the bridge from fear to safety to unconditional love. In that space of love—the space that exists beyond fear, trauma, or suffering—lies the purest form of the human expression of your soul. It’s what author Rebecca Ward calls your Original Blueprint®. Learn to reclaim it.

Thank you, Original Blueprint Press, for the advance reading copy.

This book is what I needed for a very long time. Speaking from my personal experience and still experiencing fear due to some toxic people in my life, I didn't feel I have any other way to avoid them or do anything on my own to do something about it.

The book describes well the kinds who try to inflict fear to people they come across or someone they know and gives amazing guide to how we can deal with them.

Crisp and genuine, the writing is straightforward and easy to follow. Anyone from young to old can read this book with ease.

I do believe everyone has someone in their lives who try to cause them fear and discomfort. I am saying this book is a great help in identifying this kind of fear and really helpful on how to free ourselves from it.

Worth it.
