Im going to work on focusing on feeling better and getting back to my old self like as anxiety/panic disorder never was there. Anxiety keeps tricking my brian a lots and I had enough. Its too much. With intrusive thoughts, disturbing scary thoughts, etc,
Im thinking everyday I will pretend as I am better like back to my old self. Whenever thoughts come into my head that create anxiety, I just ignore and say never heard of it, Im back to my old self.
Any tips on how to pretend/imagine as you are back to old self and happy. Could I just imagine myself singing like Glee, jumping up and down or picture me exciting when I say I am feeling better, I am feeling better (over and over)
Any suggestions with affirmations? I will also use gratitude too.
I just want to be back to my old self!
Your help is greatly appreciated.
as abraham hicks say you can easily transform your negative emotions with the right focus, so you can transform anxiety into eagerness for life :), excitement!
anyway if you want to investigate the root cause of it people say that this book is more than helpful:
a warm hug
Hugs thank you!
Back to my old self,I want to be back like 20-30 years old than around 32-33 years old I have anxiety---so I want to go back where I was happy.
If the disturbing/harmful thought pops up, I tend to react as its panic way but i can just say, fuck it, then focus on being happy (stay happy for the moment that I was really happy)--but my concern is that it feels like you are forcing to be happy when you are scared of the image/thought. I can just picture myself laughing all the times (i love to laugh for no reason) so I can just focus/imagine myself laughing all the times, even in my head when i go everywhere.
also do you have to do all the times today or just few times ?
I have a question, do I have to act like "I'm fine" as like anxiety/intrusive thoughts never came? If these harmful images pop up, I just can say like fuck it or delete or something and then act/pretend like Im fine--so I can act like this all day? Just be happy all day (event sometimes you don't feel like it depends on thoughts)
whenever bad images come, I just start into creative way like in musical broadway/producing movies. I notice the harmful images are decreased than before but it take time.
I will take up more physical exercises to help.
There are many LOA techniques for this. You want to try and pick what suits you best. I personally think that any exercise that may help you with awareness will be the best.
I had a similar desire to ‘go back to my old self’ . So I can relate to you. What helped me was finding out what I did differently back then that I don’t anymore. In my case, my life was much simpler, fewer possessions, fewer choices, no excessive gadget use , lots of physical activity, creative activities , less sugar/ caffeine etc You don’t have to do the same exact things you did back then, just choose what feels better to you now.
In my case, what helped me most was fixing my nutritional deficiencies and poor lifestyle choices. You can check that post to see if there’s anything that resonates with you.
Thank you!. I will get back to you on those. Im thinking to joining hip hop dance classes--watching glee shows over and over and dance classes will help
I will get back to you on this
it seems to be a great one!
something that really helps me. 5 steps to clear fear/anxiety.
1. be aware of your fear/anxious thought. notice it - you will be able to realize you are thinking those thoughts by the way you feel
2. ask if your thought is helpful. 99.99% of the time, the thought is NOT helpful at all
3. make a conscious intention to let it go - once you've identified that the thought is not helpful, you are much more willing to let it go
4. let it go - take some deep breaths and do a mini meditation. listen to the sounds around you and come into the present moment
5. think of what you DO want. you want to be happy, you want to be free. go ahead and imagine yourself singing like glee or imagine yourself in a happy moment or feel gratitude. whatever makes you feel good, do it.
the point is to clear out that negative thought first so you create a space for the joy, gratitude and other visualizations. if you are affirming things while you're feeling bad, they are just going to clash and it will make you feel worse because affirmations don't go anywhere if you have not created the space for it first. this video i made will explain the process better. namaste, love and light!
5 Simple Steps to Let Go Of Fear/Anxiety
thank you for this. I just took a quick look at the link. Im just glad you include the captioning as I can't hear. Im going to look the whole thing later.
It's been a tough journey. Even when I did manage to stop with fears on one thing, but then later it just kept going on with another new thing to be scared and so on. With ongoing exercise, and eating right, taking vitamins, etc, it just won't stop. It's hard to be happy when the panic disorders come up.
questions for 4/5
when doing meditation with listening sounds, can I do the same as number 5, imaging myself to be happy and singing like Glee/happy moment?
It's hard to feel good, because i have bad emotions since. I don't have happiness inside me since
Thank you for this
