A 5-Point Guide to Transmuting Fear by Mars Sector 8

A 5-Point Guide to Transmuting Fear by Mars Sector 8

One of the most regular communicators through Dr. George King as Primary Terrestrial Mental Channel was that all-knowing source: Mars Sector 8 – General Information. There was a very close link, possibly a bond, between Dr. King and this source who ranks extremely highly in our cosmic pantheon as a unique and absolutely essential giver of timeless wisdom, invaluable information and practical assistance.

His teachings are delivered in a distinctive manner, pulling no punches and, at times, supplying authoritative data on a range of matters which has changed metaphysics on this planet forever. He was the go-to source for exact analysis on particular aspects of truth and, it seems to me, that he was very in tune with Dr. King’s practical, almost down-to-earth approach rather than armchair theory.

The full extent of what exactly Mars Sector 8 is we don’t know, and we probably could not understand. Dr. King described him as “a control point and a communications point for this solar system.” He said that this general information sector is located on the smaller of the two Martian moons, Deimos.

What is not so well known about Mars Sector 8 is that he is a great warrior and was described as such by the Master Aetherius. He performed difficult and dangerous spiritual assignments to protect and save others, always acting in complete accordance with the all-pervasive Law of Karma. Perhaps this is another reason for his close affinity with Dr. King who was himself a spiritual warrior – a fighter for truth.

Mars Sector 8 delivered his teachings in a direct and at times almost acerbic manner in order to bring them home to us. As he said in one Transmission:

We have tried all kinds of approaches to Earth. We have tried a very gentle approach. Now we are trying, in some cases, a more pointed one. That is why I have, unfortunately, to speak in this way.

Clearly he would have preferred to adopt a more gentle, subtle manner, but this world desperately needs the firm, no-nonsense revelation of truth in these days.

Yet his compassion always shines through his words, as is very evident in the short Transmission he delivered on 20th December 1961, which is published in Cosmic Voice Issue No. 26. I have called it a “5-Point Guide to Transmuting Fear”, and I very much hope that such a description is acceptable to this great master of cosmic wisdom. It was described by the Master Aetherius as containing “the obvious key to your own salvation”.

Mars Sector 8 – General Information says:

At this time you Terrestrials are facing your basic trials. Be you not in anywise afeared, for this fear is a weapon of the dark forces. Reject it.

The first of a series called The Nine Freedoms was transmitted through Dr. King earlier that year by another great Cosmic Master, Mars Sector 6. Focusing on bravery, he said that humanity “is beset by strange fears which imprison his actions, his very outlook; which imprison his mind – aye, even his psychic abilities”. Sometimes we call them insecurities, inhibitions or complexes, but at their root is fear. The dark forces who seek power over humanity use fear to control the materialistic scheme and the political structures of the world. But Mars Sector 8 tells us to reject it and then spells out the five key steps we can all take to do so.


Let your magnificent hearts be filled with the Power of the One Divine Source and fear will have no place therein.

Every time we draw spiritual energy to us through the power of prayer; every time we practise healing for people, animals or plants; every time we radiate love to friends, and especially foes, we liberate ourselves from fear. It simply cannot enter our being while we are radiating love – the more compassion we feel for others, the less fearful we will become. So visualise white light filling your heart and transmute fear.


Look deep within yourselves at the lasting Spark of the Absolute which has residence there, and fear will have no place.

At the core of our being there is no fear. When we lose touch with our inner self, all types of emotion can take over, creating an environment in which fear thrives. We can overcome this by contemplating and meditating on the true nature of our being – the divine spark within. We cannot focus on our true unlimited nature and still feel fear – the two states are diametrically opposed. So be still, seek oneness with your inner self and transmute fear.


Cast out the darkness of your basic thoughts.

This is easier said than done, and yet we are told that we can all do it. As a thought enters our consciousness from the ethers around us, it carries with it energy – be it light or dark. We can decide to accept or reject such thoughts and the energy they carry. We receive all kinds of mental impressions, but it is up to us what we do with them. This is more difficult for those living, and possibly working, in negative environments because of the thought patterns prevalent there. A wonderful weapon in our spiritual armoury is the violet flame practice which, when performed correctly, is guaranteed to transmute basic thoughts and energies, and in doing so rid us of fear. So visualise the protective violet flame coming up from the Mother Earth beneath your feet, and all the way through your being, and transmute fear.


Let the Light which flows unrestricted through the Mighty Cosmic System course through you and fear will have no place.

There is one energy in the cosmos whether it be called prana, qi, the universal life force, or the power of God. Through correct breathing combined with positive visualisation we can attract this energy to us in abundance to charge up and purify our whole being. This is done by breathing deeply while visualising white light entering you as you breathe in and cleansing you as you breathe out. Be still with the spine straight, make your breath as long and even as possible, fill yourself with the universal life force and transmute fear.


Go you on, living the Faith you now profess and fear will be as a total stranger to you.

Faith should not be based on just hope, and never on wishful thinking. It should be based on experience, intuition and spiritual logic. If it remains a theoretical concept, it will wither and die; when you act upon it, it becomes a living, growing force. Like a plant it needs to be nurtured – watered and fed by your actions, not your words. Any weeds in the undergrowth will be uprooted and dispersed by its vibrant energy, including the most virulent weed of all, fear. This Transmission was delivered to an audience at an Aetherius Society meeting in Los Angeles, so it is very likely that Mars Sector 8 was referring specifically to faith on The Aetherius Society path, which we now call King Yoga. Those who act in the light of these teachings will sooner or later experience their truth; the inner voice will guide us to realise this truth if only we listen to it; and a careful examination of it is always rewarded with profound insights of undeniable logic. From such firm foundations the strong boughs of faith can grow and spread in verdant fruitfulness. The same applies to any philosophy which is grounded in divine truth. Only when you put it into action will your courage and strength really start to grow. So live your faith and transmute fear.

Mars Sector 8 continues:

As well, you will prepare yourself for a greater thing, a greater life. A fuller more complete existence is yours.

Free from the burden of fear, the sky’s the limit. Real success in this world is not the product of materialistic conditioning, but of spiritual attainment and its finest expression: service to others. Corrupted by fear, our vision misidentifies success, causing us to aspire to the wrong things. We can look to unnecessary symbols of worldly achievement, when all along the inner voice was directing us to wisdom and its real measure: what we do for the world as a whole.

Reach out, oh Terrestrial man and pick the fruit, the lasting fruit, from the Garden of Active Wisdom.

Released from the paralysis of fear, Mars Sector 8 offers us the rich pickings of enlightened thought and, more importantly, action. We cannot stand still – such is a karmic impossibility and, as Dr King has taught, we are creating karma for better or for worse 24 hours per day. So if we are not moving forwards, there is only one other direction for us to go. When we act in the light of this 5-point guide by Mars Sector 8 that cannot happen, as he confirms in his closing words: “Then you will not go backwards.”

    These views sit comfortably with all the research into NDE and the ‘late shining’ – a brief period when death is close when even those who are suffering from memory loss or bran damage suddenly become lucid for a brief moment. Fear holds us back, fear stops us fully experiencing spiritual energy that we are all composed of. Many start a process of meditation or deep relaxation but when they have ‘an experience’ like feeling the white beam of energy entering down through the top of their head or the deep buzzing sound, which is the precursor to a seperation from the physical, the become fearful. Though it can feel like a ‘little death’ it must be ignored, one should continue and experience all with a feeling of deep love for all.

      Thank you Duat for your insightful comments. There is no question that we should rise above fear in the course of these experiences, and spiritual experiences broadly. Mars Sector 6 says that it is fear which imprisons our psychic abilities. It is also interesting to note that in Dr. King’s commentary on the First Freedom (Bravery), he addresses this several times. In just one example, Dr. King says “There are many upon this path who have fallen back through fear, when they have been virtually standing upon the very brink of some elevated Metaphysical Illumination. The first time that true Meditation is brought about and the aspirant is able to look through, what is termed in the west, the Christ Center, he is absolutely stricken with awe. Many aspirants stop at this particular state making no effort to approach it again, because of their fear.” Okay, we may not be at this state yet, but certainly the principle applies nevertheless and we should endeavor to go forward at whatever stage we are today. Blessings, Darren

    I sometimes experience “dark days” not dark nights.
    As Shakespear said; To be or not to be is the question. Mostly I love life, but then I feel like it would be better not to be, not to exist at all. It pass by, but do you have any advise for overcoming it?

    • Darren on January 18, 2017 at 1:43 pm

      Hi Amanda, thank you for reading the post. I hear you. I think many of us have our dark days…

It keeps me focused on what really counts. You may find it helpful too.

    Really pleased to read this. I will put it into practice.
    Freedom from fear being the First Freedom after all.

    • Darren on January 26, 2017 at 7:06 am

      Thanks Sanjay! Putting it into practice is what we’re all here to do. Freedom from fear is one step closer to true, unconditional love – and each of the other Freedoms too!

      • Adrienne on May 13, 2017 at 9:38 pm

        With loving practice, and without fear, but courage, with faith in being thankful and respectful for the divine in every being, we become nearer to each other through a true love which becomes unconditional. A wiser love can manifest in our relationships increasingly, in ever greater harmonies, leading in time, to a glimpse of the oneness we each hope for.
