Is Your Anxiety Getting TOO MUCH?

Are you struggling with anxiety more than usual?

Take a moment to think if any of the following currently applies to you, you are:

  • Overwhelmed and exhausted, struggling to function, getting by in some moments of the day but overall feel like you are losing the battle.
  • Flitting back and forth from past regrets to future panic always playing out the worst case scenario.
  • Constantly self-sabotaging, every time you get closer to what you really want you mess it up without understanding why.

If this is you trying to overcome anxiety, you are not alone.

Nowadays General Anxiety Disorder is everywhere affecting more than 2 million people in the UK.

What Is Anxiety?

how to overcome anxiety

Anxiety is a mechanism our unconscious mind sends our body to protect us from perceived threat and danger. The word perceived is important here but that doesn’t stop the focus of the subconscious autopilot being hyper-vigilant.

Anxiety is only ever your unconscious giving you information about something it hasn’t fully worked through yet. It’s possible your unconscious is stuck in a moment in time. ie. 12 year old you being teased for wearing something embarrassing at school.

Take this example:

Becca and Katie both have to give presentations at work. Becca is chill, she sees the whole presentation going great and she’s really looking forward to it.

Katie however is freaking out! When she thinks about the presentation, she feels a knot in her stomach and keeps imagining her boss and colleagues making fun of her behind her back. As a result she pictures herself losing her job and her friends and begging on a street corner for pennies.

Katie’s reaction is being triggered by a memory from her past which has been wired into her brain as danger. When she was 6, she was reciting a poem for her classmates at school. Her friends started giggling at a picture on the wall behind her and she thought they were laughing at her. She got nervous and when the teacher shouted because she forgot the words, she felt humiliated.

Katie’s interpretation of that past situation got wired into her subconscious mind in this way to stop her ever doing anything that could lead her to re-experience the pain and shame she felt that day.

Years later, the now 28 year old Katie has looked for evidence throughout her life to justify the belief that talking in front of others is dangerous and should be avoided.

Now it’s begun overspilling into different areas of her life, so over time she has become more anxious in other situations and it’s turned into meta-anxiety, a fear of the fear of anxiety. Not good.

Her thought pattern is different to Becca’s because no one person’s perception of reality is reality itself. Now she needs to learn how to overcome anxiety.

How Do I Overcome Anxiety Though?

Do you identify with Katie? Do you think you may have an issue with General Anxiety Disorder?

Well, there is an answer.

Reality is filtered through the lense of our past memories, experiences and beliefs. So by uncovering the cause of the problem (which are normally those memories that your subconscious is using to protect you), understanding them and releasing them, the behaviour whether it’s performance anxiety, social anxiety or panic attacks can be healed and changed. The memory remains but the emotion is gone leaving you anxiety free.
