There are many who experience anxiety and panic attacks that often show up suddenly and appear to be unprovoked.
Why is that?
To answer that question we need to look at the core cause for anxiety.
The human mind, also known as the egoic or ego mind, operates in the past and future exclusively and essentially takes unresolved past traumas and creates fear of reliving it in the future. These fears are triggered whenever we experience anything that has a similar energy signature or feeling, compounded by unfinished healing, and anxiety and panic attacks are the result.
The ego jumps back and forth from past to future as a way to distract us from the moment because when you are “here now”, it doesn’t exist. The ego mind relates this to something it fears most, its own death.
Regardless of how it may appear, there is a positive side effect to the ego mind; it brings unhealed issues to conscious awareness for resolution.
Have you ever found yourself so deeply involved with something you really love and enjoy that everything seems to be coming together perfectly, time has been lost and you feel completely in peace? This is the inherent flow of life in the moment.
Anxiety is fundamentally the result of living in fear of the natural flow and process of life.
How do you completely release this fear?
There are two distinct ways to naturally and permanently resolve anxiety and panic attacks.
- Use Energy Medicine such as Reiki and ThetaHealing, or Energy Psychology such as EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and the Sedona Method to find and quickly discharge the emotional attachment to your unpleasant past experiences.
- Use Self-Inquiry to discover the truth behind your experience in the moment.
Want to quickly move through an anxiety or panic attack?
In working with my clients and patients, I have found that when they are distracted away from the anxious moment, they move through the attack quite quickly. Since it is typical to start breathing rapidly during an attack, I ask them to place the palm of their hand on their diaphragm or belly while focusing all their attention on feeling themselves breathing nice slow, deep breaths.
The positive effect of doing this exercise is that three things are accomplished.
- The attention is taken away from the fear at the core of the attack and places it in the moment.
- It makes them aware of their breathing, and therefore gives them something they have control over in a situation that can very easily become overwhelming.
- It provides the body with a nice level of oxygen for the brain to use for clear thinking, which further helps them move through the fear reaction.
