Its not just a question of programming us to became fearful, but the memory wipe out mechanism disables us from the understanding of our potential by not remembering who we are and what we are.
For example just because they are dark entities or energy doesn't mean they are bad, there a misconception from my belief about that, there's a balance point in all energies, but it doesn't mean also that there aren't shadow dark energy.
i had with one of my sisters in a shamanic practice, we got so deep in that experience that was able to see the energy or the entity in her back, i was able to feel the entity and found out that it was a spirit guide of her, an indigenous warrior, it was with this energy for it an energy that works in fire meaning, action, willingness no matter what, like a warrior that does what it needs to be done regardless, so it's a guide that she "calls" to help her when things need to be done for example.
Besides that, there's also something to be aware of, when one is conscious enough that he has the power or capability in himself, free will automatically becomes a conscious choice in a positive way / true way, meaning, knowing that although you are experience yourself in "flesh" there's no difference, you still influence energetically.
I had sleep paralyses experiences but the last one's it showed me the belief in myself, the trust in me to see my self with power and therefore to order to get out!
Or the trust in yourself to interact in a positive way, to give off that resonance, that vibration.
We see and experience what we reflect, depending in what we feel.
