When we try to force anxiety away, we always fail. Why is that?
Have you ever been in the sea and tried to push a beach ball down under the water. What happened? The harder you pushed it down, the more forceful it bounced back up, right.
The same applies when we mentally try to push feelings of anxiety away. Those feelings bounce back harder.
I teach people that they have a choice. They can either fight and resist anxiety or they can move into true acceptance of it and allow it to be present.
When you move into a state of true acceptance of how you are feeling you create a gap for nervous system to calm and heal.
So through acceptance, we paradoxically heal anxiety.
Another great paradox of healing anxiety is that when we drop our expectation of getting a result, we heal even faster!
I know many of you ‘get’ these ideas but you still find it hard to put them into practice.
I want to share a short audio with you from the Panic Away coaching program.
On the call you will hear Patrick really nail the concept of acceptance and how it heals his anxiety. Take a listen to how inspiring his words are!
The audio is very short so don’t miss it. It might be exactly what you need to hear today!
