Override your automatic behavior function and act with consciousness.
That is basically what being a warrior is all about. For example, there are enemies of the warrior. Don Juan is the Yaqui Indian teacher of Carlos Castaneda, talks about enemies of the warrior.
And the first enemy, he says, is fear. Fear is a terrible enemy. And if you give in to fear, then that is it. He says “your striving is ended, and the person just -- they do not get anywhere, they do not learn anything”. So Carlos says, "Well, what do you do if you are faced with fear?" He says, "You must be fully afraid and not give in, just move forward. And if you do that, eventually the fear will subside."

The Shen or the “Spirit” in Men
The Chinese believe that a person composes 3 parts Shen (mind) and 7 parts Bao.
Thus, the Chinese proverb says:
“Evil is afraid of man 7 times, while man is afraid of Evil 3 times”.
So long as a persons shen (mind) is strong, he is immune to Evil. The Evil doer would try to harm such a person at his own peril.
We all have seven Bao or seven Lifeguards, shielding our social and professional life.
1. Health; 2. Self-esteem; 3. Happiness; 4. Contact; 5. Career; 6. Freedom and 7. Master.
The seven Bao act as a Firewall, when all function properly we can consider our life and work being protected. If not, the challenge is to work on our weak Bao and strengthen them.
To do this MartriX.org does not only offers you training in physical martial art, but also in mental and spiritual forms. Intuitive Boxing envelopes a variety of methods to get the optimum result.
In matters concerning the essence of life it self, there are no holds barred.
