Notice where the emotion of fear arises. Often people notice it in their throat, their gut, their heart, but it can be anywhere.
Bring the emotion to neutral. How do you bring an emotion to neutral? Choose from many ways:
Push your awareness through the discomfort;
Untangle the feeling until it subsides;
Notice the direction the feeling moves, and run its movement in the opposite direction; or
Focus on your breathing until it subsides.
Play with the above until you find what works for you.
Bring your attention back to imagining the event, and repeat.
Notice how the fear is different the next time you imagine it. Continue until you have no fearful emotion when imagining it!
Maybe this takes you only one time, or ten times, or 100 times. Continue to notice how it is different each time. It has been my experience that as you get used to shifting things in this way, fewer repetitions will be needed.
