Let's now take a look at relaxation tips for anxiety that show how to leave the past in the past and subdue the pain it has stored up within and continues to act out through you all too effectively.
Why is this so important ?
Inner joy and deep peace are achieved through the calmness of the mind when we are simply present in the moment.
In addition, the essence of being present in the moment is the absence of thinking. This means that we are no longer caught in the endless cycle of thoughts of fear, restlessness and suffering.
The purpose of this article is to help guide you to this calm state in which the mind ceases to serve up old stories of negative past experiences for your continued attention, a state in which you are not trapped in fears of what might happen in the future or what has already happened.
It is intended to assist you in clearing your subconscious mind of emotional pain, fear and a sense of helplessness from the past
We have all been emotionally wounded many times in life, and these wounds have been built into our personality becoming part of us and every once in a while they make their presence felt.
We can overlook them and wait for them to go back underground.
My first relaxation tip for anxiety don't deny your feelings. Find the way to feel your anxiety and to work through it.
Our mind is a wonderful tool if we use it well, but when it uses us, it becomes a weapon of self-destruction.
When the mind is preoccupied with negative thoughts all the time, our lives will also be correspondingly negative. Thus, it is not right that this tool has escaped our control and usurped our power of decision-making, leading us into suffering and sickness instead of peace and happiness.
Most people are not even aware of this because most of the time they just identify with their mind.
However, if we want to be free from negative thought patterns, the first step is to start observing the mind and its contents.
By observation you will eventually notice that we are not actually these things as such, and that what is really worthwhile
is merely waiting for us to accept our emotional pain and allow it to leave.
My second relaxation tip for anxiety is not to identify with your mind.
Your task is simply to be aware that love is stronger than any fear, and that the energy of love always conquers the energy of threat or constriction.
You can create change one step, one painful memory, one unpleasant feeling, and one limiting belief at a time. It will not happen overnight, but every time you turn and face your pain, you will experience victory and, step by step, you will feel better.
The releasing of painful emotions from your body may cause shivering, chills, fever or perspiration as your body cooperates intensively in this process, and some transitional physical pain and/or sobbing may occur.
However, always bear in mind that love is stronger than fear, and will always overcome the energy of threat.
Even if you are afraid, accept that fear with love.
Accept your sadness with love. Accept your body in each moment exactly as it is. Learn to guide the play of your thoughts and feelings.
The first step is always acceptance, and the next is to change the unpleasant state.
So my 3rd relief tip for anxiety is not to identify with your mind.
All this pain has the potential to compel you to make changes in your life.
People usually require a certain amount of suffering before they are ready to leave their comfort zone and take meaningful action.
As I have observed those who have come to me for EFT therapy, I have usually noticed a common denominator they all share — they have all received a life lesson.
They have had to deal with strong emotional pain in their lives...
...so strong that it forced them to seek an answer.
In some people this pain showed up in the form of panic attacks, in others as jealousy or social anxiety, and still others developed an obsessive compulsive disorder or an intense fear of public speaking.
We could call their problems by many different names, but one thing they all had in common was that the pain became intolerable.
As if life was trying to push them into taking the next step and leave behind old habits, old relationships and old beliefs.
Once they found the key and the pain dissolved, every one of them was content with where life had led them. When they were in the middle of the emotional storm, all they wished for was for it to be over.
However, when they emerged from it and transcended it, they were able to view the entire situation and all that had happened in a more positive light.
If you need help, you can use EFT therapy to incorporate all this tips in to your life and to permanently overcome anxiety.
