What is The Real Reason for Anxiety Disorders ?

by Vlasta Kuster

The only real reason for anxiety disorders is past negative experiences that have written into into our subconscious. From birth, we have experienced stressful events in which fear, anger, and sadness are recorded into our subconscious.

All these feelings have accumulated over the years, and now that we have grown up, it has all grown into an indefinable mass of emotional and physical discomfort, called anxiety.

Let's take a closer look at what causes anxiety disorders.

Anxiety is associated with strong negative thinking accompanied by unpleasant feelings. In addition, a whole series of bodily symptoms can arise that limit people at every step, as if an intimidating and constantly alarming voice had somehow taken up residence in one’s head.

People live with a torturer in their heads who robs them of their power and energy for life.

This voice either incessantly calls to mind the recent and distant past or else paints pictures of an unpleasant future, like an old mental movie. When one has been through a number of painful past experiences, this voice grows very strong, and people often do not even realize that it’is more connected to the past than to the present, and it always interprets the present in the language of the past.

This is because it belongs to the unconscious mind where all the ‘‘truths’’ of the past are collected and stored.

A part of this mind is inherited, but the larger part is a product of our formative past experiences.

This human whisperer that obsessively associates the current circumstance with the past is a human being’s worst enemy. It connects every present circumstance with the past.

The worst part of it all is that people in most cases are not even aware of it. The whole process is carried out in such a clever, backhanded way that we just simply identify with this internal monologue and allow it to take the reins.

As a result, we become a prisoner of these thoughts and their attendant emotions, all without realizing that we are being led against our will.

The saddest of all is how unaware we are of the extent and depth of our past programming.

We think that we are in charge of our lives, while in reality we are more like marionettes and our subconscious is the puppeteer.

Significant progress occurs once we start to see this, and listening to people at this level of awareness usually sounds something like this:

  • I would love to be calm, , but I simply can’t. I firmly decide to relax, but I can’t . I do precisely what I don’t want to do and don’t know how to stop. Something inside me is stronger than I am.
  • I’d love to be calm, but anxiety completely overwhelms me and I can’t seem to do anything about it. Then I start putting pressure on me. A little more and I’ll end up destroying myself. I know I should think things through before I react, but it’s incredibly difficult. I’m trying to put these difficulties behind me before I lose everything that’s dear to me.
  • I decide that I’m going to visit shopping mall, but then as soon as it’s time to go, I start procrastinating. Then evening comes and another day has gone by, and this goes on day after day, week after week, month after month. I’m at my wit’s end. I’m mad at myself because I make such a firm decision and then don’t find the will to begin.
  • I tell myself that I’m going to go out and meet people, but then I panic and chicken out. I hole up in my apartment and end up not going anywhere. When that fear overtakes me, I’m completely helpless. I’m ashamed to tell people why I can’t come to social events I’m invited to. I tell them I’m too tired, but the truth is I really do want to go. I’m just too scared.
  • I promise myself I’m going to be nicer to my kids, then I lose it when they get too rambunctious. I don’t want to keep repeating patterns from my own childhood, but I get pulled in again and again. I know I’m hurting my children, but I don’t seem to be able to stop.

I could go on and on. Maybe you too have had the experience of consciously intending to behave a certain way, only to be taken over by unconscious patterns.

It is my hope that I will teach you how to regain control over your life. I would like to see that you understand that we really do have power over our own negative emotions and that we can overcome them.

I will show you how to silence the strident voice of your past, and by doing so, transform your present

It is here that EFT therapy, which is a tool made to diminish the intensity of negative feelings, is so helpful.

Using it we can truly leave the past behind.

To the extent that we fail to do this, we remain unconsciously driven by it and only once we are free of past pain (as well as of the worries about the future that such pain gives rise to).

Thus, only then can we accept all the beautiful things life offers.
