This is what it means if you saw the CATERPILLAR first:
If caterpillar is the thing you noticed first, your hidden fear is ghost, which is also known as phasmophobia. The chances are you fear that ghost or some evil spirits might appear in front of you and haunt you at some of your weakest times, such as when you are trying to fall asleep or when you are confused.
This is what it means if you saw the BUTTERFLY first:
If you saw the butterfly first, your hidden fear is betrayal. It is very likely that you have been already hurt in the past and now you fear that the story may repeat. Maybe you have faced some rejection, whether it be a partner, a job, or a dream. However, you are very good at hiding this weakness. It only appears when you are forced to deal with it.
This is what it means if you saw the APPLE first:
If you saw the apple first, your subconscious worry is death. Nevertheless, not your own death, however that of your relative or close friends. It is very likely that you have already lost somebody dear to you. With the trauma you have been faced with, it’s no surprise that this shadow keeps haunting you and you cannot bear the thoughts of losing another person in your life.
What all hidden fears share is the combination of guilt and panic. You might wonder why those two feelings in particular … Well, let’s take the fear of economic uncertainty as an example of this. If you have lost your job and others depend upon you economically, it is natural to feel guilty. In addition, it is easy for panic to creep in as you cannot come up with a way to solve the situation. Therefore, the combination of guilt and panic is a deadly one for sure.
Fear and negative energy are like a fungus that thrives in darkness, so as long as you keep these feeling to yourself, they will continue to multiply and haunt you. If something isn’t done to correct the situation, you might wind up paralyzed by those negative emotions.
