Why does Anxiety Attack Cause Panic and How to Deal With it

by Vlasta Kuster

Anxiety attacks can also cause panic. I'll explain why...

Year after year the human mind accumulates the burdens of stressful past events and the painful emotions they generate.

However, very often these emotions are disguised to the point that they are no longer readily traceable to their past source, and so appear to be a strictly present phenomenon.

You need to understand why anxiety attack triggers panic

People are generally not even aware of these silent burdens from the past. To us, it seems as if they are simply over.

However, the past has a very powerful impact on us.

Whenever we experience a very strong, painful emotional effect, a record of it is left in the body, which knows all too well that something painful has occurred.

It is like putting a mud ball in a closet for twenty years...

...it dries out, but it does not go away.

It is still there when the door is opened two decades later. In just that same way, emotional pain gets stored in the ‘‘closet’’ of the human body. When the door is opened years or decades later, the effects of the original pain are still there and exert an impact on the present moment.

This is how the past comes to shape our day-to-day life without our conscious intent.

How to prevent anxiety attack from triggering panic

All the pain we suffered as children is recorded in the body and the soul, along with the pain caused by the world. This accumulated pain forms an energy field that encompasses both mind and spirit.

Past pain can be either ‘‘asleep’’ or active.

Some people live almost exclusively from that pain; others experience it only occasionally, as it may be inactive 90% of the time.

If you want to prevent anxiety attack to cause panic you...

  • simply feel the pain as it is now,
  • go all the way to the root of it,
  • accept it with love,
  • and put it under the microscope of our attention. allowing yourselves to relive it completely until it goes away on its own.

What questions you need to ask yourself to overcome anxiety attack?

  • What am I feeling now?
  • What thought is hurting me the most?
  • Have I been abandoned?
  • Unloved?
  • Alone?
  • That I am worthless?
  • That I am unimportant?
  • That I feel betrayed?
  • When did I feel like this as a child?
  • With which parent did I experience these same emotions?

What life situations can cause anxiety attack to escalate in panic attack

Anxiety attack can trigger panic when

  • we lose someone close to us,
  • when anything happens that somehow reminds us at a subconscious level of some negative past experience.

People who experience anxiety and panic attacks carry around an enormous amount of pain from the past, frequently from childhood.

This only accumulates as the years go by.

No one has yet been able to explain why the onset age for panic attacks is so different for different people. However, it is simply a matter of how long it takes the body to reach its maximum storage capacity for pain.

Anxiety and panic attacks are the body’s way of signaling that its limit has been exceeded, and it needs help.

Sometimes pain from the past and the present comes together and for a while the person loses control of his or her emotions. This powerful, undefined emotional pain is like a monster that completely overwhelms them.

You need to love yourself even if you experience panic attack - but how ?

When anxiety attack cause panic, you will need to do the following:

  • Do not judge yourself. You are not crazy, you are not ‘‘losing it,’’ and you are not sick. It is just that too much pain has built up in you and now you have to let it out of your body.

  • This pain needs your love and acceptance. It is important that you do not look down on it or repress it, nor should you attempt to distract yourself from it until it passes. You need to give it your attention as soon as you can find a free moment to be alone with yourself.

  • You can learn tapping to work with your negative feelings. If you make this into a daily practice, it can dramatically change your quality of life and raise you to a higher level in every area of your life.

  • You may use EFT therapy, which will allow you to accept and relive these feelings, thereby clearing out the pain from your past and doing a great deal for your health,  self-confidence and inner peace.
