You Can Heal from Anxiety
Everyone feels anxious sometimes. There can be situations that bring up anxiety for people: the stress of everyday living, losing a loved one, getting fired from a job, going through a divorce, etc.
These challenging situations can lead a person to feel sad, lonely, scared, nervous, or anxious. Negative feelings can be "normal" reactions to life's stressors.
Two Types of Anxiety
1. Some individuals have anxiety that continues for days, weeks or even months and years. For these folks, their general disposition is to be anxious. Therapists refer to this as an anxiety-mood disorder. For some of these people, overwhelming worry and fear are constant. People with an anxiety disorder can have obsessive thoughts, feelings of panic, trouble sleeping, heart palpitations, and cold or sweaty hands.
2. There are people with a personality that leans towards being anxious, nervous, and doubtful without being so severe they have a diagnoses. For these people they move in and out of anxiety without it being so severe it is threatening to their overall sense of self and peace of mind. Science is not sure what causes anxiety. Low serotonin levels, poor site receptor cells and a small hypothalamus have all been sited as potential causes.
How to Heal Anxiety
When I look at a person’s energetic field who has signs of anxiety, many times I see the problem is an over buildup of negative emotions and thoughts. Anxious people’s minds are quick. They think fast and there can be a “lack of space” between thoughts. This hyper-vigilant state does not allow the anxious person’s intuition to enter their consciousness. They feel disconnected from themselves and others. The anxious person wonders if they matter and if life will work out at all.
They worry and obsess about what to do next. The anxious person’s brain races and chatters, filling their energetic field with worry. Calm and a higher sense of knowing cannot get through the noise and chatter of the anxious person’s brain.
And as a result, the physical body is overrun with toxic energy resulting in a lack of mental clarity and eventually physical aches, pain, and illness.
Many medical practitioners have told anxious people to slow their brain down by meditating, doing yoga and walking in the park. These practices are helpful, but sometimes the over anxious person cannot get enough “ground” under them to execute the practice successfully. Trying to slow down a brain that has been left to run amok can be like slowing a scared horse at full gallop or trying to find a clean spot to have a five-course meal in a toxic dump.
The root causes of a person’s anxiety can be varied. Finding an "exit" for the person’s “negative energy” to release can result in immediate relief. A brain setting in overdrive can be a result of a trauma or stress.
Deep seated trauma can be released through expressive movements that unlock the body from habitual patterns. Teaching the energy body what safety feels like can result in dramatic shifts. And releasing subconscious beliefs of feeling attacked, being a target, and feeling unprotected can result in release of fear, anger, and doubt.
Homework is given so that clients can learn to move their energy out of an unresourceful state.
