Working with Anxiety



I have had success sitting with those suffering from PTSD or other anxiety disorders.

I am like a security blanket, extra protection, for those trying to heal.

They must trust me enough, to sit still in the middle of there anxiety.

The biggest challenge is having the courage to sit quietly when our fight or flight mechanism explodes.

If I can help them dissipate their anxiety with the breath, life changes.

Knowing we can influence anxieties grip on our life gives us hope.

We are not helpless, we can dissipate anxieties power.

We have to be terrified of our trauma, our anxiety to suffer the awful symptoms of panic, hypervigilance, dissociation etc.

Sitting quietly, focused on the breath first, then focused on the body sensations helps integrate anxiety or trauma.

Judgment has ceased, we have entered the subtleties of our inner ๐ŸŒŽ world.

Once we have organically felt the power to dissipate anxiety, it loses some power.

Our mind follows repetitive thoughts. Like meditation, it is an accumulative practice.

Each time we sit quietly focused dissipating anxiety, each time it loses more power.

A calmer, more confident you will become the new default mode.

Expand your boundaries, search out a mindfulness group or an appropriate support group.

Take action, make a daily plan if you value improving.
