Looking at Anxiety

Looking at anxiety can cause a lot of confusion for many people, as the way we are told it exists often isn’t true. Instead of telling you the same things that you’ve probably heard a million times before, I’m going to show you some concepts that have really helped my clients.

Once you understand anxiety this way, it will change the way that you look at anxiety forever.

What is Anxiety?

Anxiety is basically part of our natural protection mechanisms. When we are in a situation that presents us with a threat or a danger, our natural systems alert us to this so that we can take action (or not). We are supposed to feel anxiety in certain situations. It is a natural feeling that has helped us and our ancestors to stay alive.

The problems with anxiety happen when this natural protection system becomes over-sensitive or is being fired in situations where there isn’t really a threat or a danger. If you are in a safe place and nothing is threatening you or your safety then there is no logical reason for you to feel anxious. Your subconscious mind and body don’t do logic though. Only your conscious mind deals in logic and this can be where some of the issues start.

Mind's different ways of looking at anxiety
The conscious mind and the subconscious mind have different ways of looking at anxiety

A Conscious Way of Looking at Anxiety

When your conscious mind is looking at anxiety, it has to rationalise and make sense of it. It needs everything to be logical and ordered to understand. Whilst your conscious mind has the power to dive deep into complex understandings in order to find answers, it doesn’t understand how the body and subconscious mind are operating.

You have a feeling in your body (let’s call it anxiety) and your conscious mind wants to know why the feeling is there. It scans the environment looking for threats and dangers but can’t find any. It then gets frustrated and starts scanning backwards and forwards in time looking for what happened to you in the past.

“When did you last feel like this?”

Transderivational Searching

This process is known as….you guessed it…transderivational searching. Your mind scans back to times in the past that could be related to something you are dealing with in the present moment. It finds an event and gathers the information from that event. It then looks at the future potential outcomes related to where you are now and what could possibly happen in order to rationalise the feeling. It then starts to make stories (often with images) about how things could play out for you.

This then continues the initial feeling of anxiety you had and can also make it feel stronger than it initially was. A feeling on its own can’t last for very long. It needs the conscious mind to fuel it with stories in order to keep it going. Well done conscious mind. You’ve now taken a small feeling and turned that molehill into a giant mountain.

A Subconscious and Body Integrated Approach to Anxiety

The subconscious mind and your body are integrated as one. They both work together very well. While the conscious mind likes to pretend it is in charge of everything, it really isn’t. Everything starts in the subconscious and body then the conscious mind jumps in and creates thoughts to match what is already happening.

Your body and subconscious mind notice a feeling in the body and are more like…

“Oh there’s a feeling”

Now your subconscious can be much more abstract when it comes to reasoning and the storing of memories. It is much more based on feelings than logic. It will sometimes connect a bunch of memories together based on how you felt. Imagine a set of children’s blocks standing on top of one another. The bottom block is the first time your body held onto that feeling and each block up is each time it has held onto that feeling or a similar one that it has put in the same box as the initial one.

Your body will tend to store unresolved feelings

Why Does The Body Store Past Negative Feelings

Your body will store negative feelings when you have been through an experience and the issues weren’t resolved. Now, it isn’t always necessary for you to release every negative feeling as it happens. Sometimes you have to go away and think about it. Sometimes you need to learn something in order to release the feeling. Sometimes you need to be able to forgive or let go in order for the feeling to release. Sometimes it can be that your mind believes that the feeling is too much for you to handle so it locks it down in the body. Simply allowing the feeling to come up and experiencing it in its entirety can often be enough to release it.

What Are Negative Feelings?

The straightforward answer is that there are no such things as negative feelings. There are just feelings. Once you can grasp this concept, life will become so much easier for you. The negative feelings are often showing you what you need to work on and resolve from your past. If you are going through grief or loss then you need to feel that in its entirety. If you don’t then you’ll end up with a trapped emotion inside of you causing you issues.

People refer to negative feelings or emotions as the ones that they don’t want to feel.

  • Anger
  • Sadness
  • Hurt
  • Jealousy
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Shame
  • Guilt
  • Loss

There is nothing at all wrong with these emotions. In their proper place, they are there to guide us and help us to do what we need to do. They can lead us out of where we are and into where we need to be. When you can love depression as much as you do happiness and joy, life will open so many more doors for you.

where does anxiety come from
All “negative” or “bad” feelings are rooted in the past

How Our Present Anxiety is Rooted In The Past

So you have a feeling inside of you that your mind has labelled as anxiety. This feeling has a birthing point. A time when it was first experienced by you. The unresolved feeling always stays at the same age as when it was created. If you first experienced anxiety at 5, each time that you feel it in the future, you will go back to having the coping mechanisms of a 5-year-old in order to deal with the situation that you are currently in.

Imagine trying to deal with being anxious as a 5-year old. At that age, you have very limited skills and are in no way as skilled as you are now. Yet this is what happens to you every time that you experience anxiety.

Imagine for a moment that you have a brand new computer. When you get it out of the box and start it up everything works beautifully. You install some software onto it to perform certain tasks and these too work really well. Imagine how well that computer would run if you didn’t update the software on it for 5 years. Now imagine not updating it for 20 years, 30 years, 40 years even.

This is how your mind and body are running when it comes to those unresolved emotions. You are literally running without those out of date and buggy programs causing issues in your life. Some issues you will be aware of and some issues you won’t be. Isn’t it about time you gave yourself an upgrade? You’re worth that, right?

Looking at Anxiety Upgrades for Your Body and Mind

In order to receive these upgrades, we have to start looking at anxiety and where it comes from for you. We need to bring the adult self and help the child self to release the old feeling. Whatever it is that needs to be altered for you to release the old programs we will do. We look at what needs to be put into place for you to be able to change how you perceive that feeling in the future.

Remember, there is no such thing as a bad feeling and anxiety in its true form is there to keep us safe. We never look at getting rid of something that is there to keep us safe. We just learn how to use it correctly. Think dialling down that over-sensitive car alarm so that it can tell the difference between a bus going past and someone trying to break into your car.

Looking at Anxiety and How it Could Be Affecting Your Life

Here is a great video for you to watch about various scenarios of how anxiety could be affecting your life. It can really help you to have a different way of looking at anxiety.

We can work together to release the old buggy programs that have been causing you issues and bring in the new programs that can help you to feel much safer, more peaceful, grounded, centred and balanced than ever before.

Healing body trauma therapy Leeds

Most people associate emotional trauma with only mental wounds, believing that it doesn’t manifest physically. However, the reality is that the stress and trauma we carry in our minds often presents themselves in our bodies, even when we don’t realise it. It becomes body trauma, which requires transformational energy healing to address.

Anxiety has been on the rise since the pandemic has wreaked havoc on the world. More people feel overwhelmed and panicked at the seemingly endless amount of negative news on TV and social media. Some have even said that they have started to feel sick due to their distress. As a result, more and more people are experiencing body trauma and are at a loss with addressing it.

Understanding Body Trauma

Feeling upset and scared doesn’t necessarily have to come from situations that directly affect you; mere exposure to traumatic information from the media you consume is often enough to traumatise you. Your body will be wired to anticipate and evade threats constantly, even when there aren’t any immediate ones present. This constant strain on yourself ultimately leads to body trauma. Survivors of accidents, abuse, and other tragic events have even more difficulty processing this, given their already existing trauma.

Humans are programmed to respond to danger in three ways: fight, flight, or freeze. When you experience a traumatic event, your body commits this feeling to memory, along with the defence mechanisms it has set to fight the trauma. These are kept in the chemicals in your body associated with emotions. By storing memories that contain signs of danger, your body can respond more immediately, helping you avoid threatening situations more easily. However, this fight-or-flight energy can get jammed in your body, overwhelming you and preventing you from responding correctly.

Dealing With Body Trauma Through Transformational Energy Healing

Traumatic experiences do not occur gently or slowly; a surge of strong emotions often accompanies them. While it is imperative to process these emotions healthily, such as crying, resting, or even exercising, traumatised people usually cannot act upon them. Thus, the body looks for an alternative way to express this energy, such as flashbacks or bad dreams. It can even manifest physiologically through neck pains, headaches, and other health conditions. It also affects how you think and perceive your surroundings, making you feel inappropriate guilt and causing you to deem harmless situations as dangerous.

Since trauma changes your body and rewires your brain, you are more susceptible to more trauma. For you to address this adequately, you’ll need transformational energy healing, which will help your body reconfigure its defence system. It will work to relax your body’s response and inform you that you are not in danger, so there is no need to be on high alert. We communicate to your body’s consciousness through energy healing, ensuring it receives and comprehends that it is safe and that it should ease its guard. Once your body calms down, it will be much easier to address the mental and emotional parts of trauma, particularly when determining the emotional energies your body consciousness requires to recover and feel well again.

Conclusion 

Pursuing energy healing is a great step towards recovering from body trauma, particularly in an incredibly distressing and upsetting time. By focusing on the physiological aspect of the trauma, it will be more manageable to address the emotional and mental elements, providing you with a holistic healing method.

coaching and therapy for sexual violence

Violence and trauma can leave deep scars on any person. Healing and coping are different for every person, especially when it comes to dealing with experiences related to sexual violence. 

Recovering from sexual violence is complex and can take many forms, as the term “healing” may have a different meaning for every survivor. But one thing’s for sure, when it comes to moving forward, survivors need to learn how to hold space for both their pain and the beauty of their resilience. 

A survivor experiences waves of emotions — often a mixture of different feelings all at once. Some feelings include hopelessness, surrender, heartbreak, and grief. Still, despite the blanket of despair, there is always a stream of love and gratitude that makes its way through the cracks and broken pieces. 

Though getting the latter may be quite challenging, it’s known that self-care practices, transformational energy healing, and coaching balances and centres the survivor’s mind and body, allowing them to find the gems in their innermost spaces and experiences. 

Breathing In Self-Compassion

One of the things healing and coaching teaches survivors is self-compassion and how it demands to be felt. With that being said, the process of learning self-compassion emerges in an organic and non-linear way, which often tests our patience, faith, and acceptance. 

There are numerous ways to practice self-compassion that integrate the body, mind, and spirit. The whole practice encourages you to focus on the space that you have and forces you to identify the sources of your resilience and remember to connect your core as you tread traumatic waters. 

Some survivors get the help of coaches and transformational energy healing specialists to help them work intentionally with their bodies and minds to breathe in light, self-compassion, and home, all while gravitating towards balance. 

Remembering That Scars are Stronger Than Skin

Clarissa Pinkola Estés, author of “Women Who Run With The Wolves,” said, “It is good to remember that in tensile strength and ability to absorb pressure, a scar is stronger than skin.”

One gets a scar after a wound heals, so this is the perfect analogy of what it is like from healing from sexual violence. When you get hurt, you learn new lessons and take with you the pain and experience that lead you to this moment, making you see your scars as a sign of survival instead of being broken. 

However, many people still think that some wounds may never heal, and the scar will always be there. But it’s also good to note that even if the scar is visible, the scar does not provide additional pain. With coaching and healing, survivors are taught to see scars in this manner and to see scars as a sign of resilience and strength. 

Trauma and Its Physical, Mental, and Spiritual Effects

Most sexual violence survivors don’t only experience physical effects; mental and spiritual consequences are brought along with the trauma. Abuse can undoubtedly leave an impact on a survivor’s health, including chronic stress, depression, low sex drive, fatigue, and are even at high risk for heart attack.

Other obstacles that survivors face are mental and eating disorders, all of which affect the survivor’s quality of life. For this reason, coaching and energy healing can help survivors cope with these effects and find light in surviving the abuse.

Final Thought: Coaching and Energy Healing Remind You That You Are Larger Than Life

Dealing with the wounds and trauma of sexual violence is a long journey that needs constant support. With coaching and transformational energy healing, survivors are encouraged to view themselves as large and powerful, focusing on their survival on incredibly traumatic events. 

In the end, healing is a collaborative effort where the coach and the survivor work together to create a safe space where the individual can grow and, although it may take time, release their wounds’ weight and heaviness.

energy healing in leeds west yorkshire

Healing touch or therapeutic touch is a healing method based on ancient healing practices. This method utilises the hand and its capacity to bring energy and help a person relax, heal, and recover from pain faster. This method aims to promote healing by restoring harmony to a person’s overall wellbeing.  

If this is your first time hearing about energy healing, here are some of the common treatments you will encounter and what they are for:

1: Craniosacral Therapy 

This non-invasive treatment uses a therapist’s hands to provide relief from various pains, such as headaches, neck pains, and other side-effects of prior health treatments. In this method, gentle pressure is applied to your head, neck, and back to remove the “blockages” that hinder your body’s normal energy flow. As a result, the process enhances your body’s ability to heal itself. 

Craniosacral therapy can help keep people’s energy continuously moving around the body. It is a healing process that is often recommended for people who experience difficult pregnancies, disturbed sleep cycles, and mood disorders. It is also known to reduce symptoms of migraines, constipation, sinus infection, scoliosis, and more.  

After the therapy, expect to feel calmer and more in-tuned with yourself.

2: Healing Touch

This energy therapy is based on the belief that every living thing on earth possesses energy. When a patient is not in their best condition, their energy is not flowing correctly.

In this healing method, the healing practitioner will ask you to lay on a massage table, or simply sit in a chair, for an energy assessment. Because your energy extends beyond your skin, the healing touch practitioner can feel and interact with it. 

From there, the practitioner will learn what to do to keep your energy levels balanced. They will begin to manipulate the flow of energy in your body using touch and hand movements. 

This healing technique is often used to complement other healing practices, such as medication, in-home care, and other therapies. The session can help calm and reduce a patient’s anxiety, stress, depression, or pain, thereby improving their quality of life and sense of wellbeing.

3: Magnetic Therapy

This healing therapy relies on magnets as tools to help treat conditions. This method is based on the belief that the body and earth have electromagnetic fields that need to be well-balanced for positive effects. When this balance is off, magnets that contain energy fields can help rebalance the field. During this rebalancing process, the organs and cells in the body are also healed. 

The therapy uses strong metal magnets placed on top of your body as you lay down on the massage bed for hours. The treatment duration depends on your body’s needs. This session is usually used to help treat health issues like injuries, depression, pain, joint problems, and migraines.

Conclusion

People use various healing techniques for different purposes, but most of them intend to become healthy in all aspects of their lives, including being at peace with themselves. Some health professionals believe that healing treatment can be a useful accompaniment to other health practices.

What is a Chakra?

As part of the energy-healing process, chakras pertain to the body’s centre. They run from your tailbone to the crown of your head, and in front of your spine. Though invisible to the naked eye, chakras make up a vital component of the body’s energy field.

As part of a spiritual healing method, the chakra aims to balance an individual’s physical and emotional well-being. When you encounter a traumatic experience, it can impact all seven chakras, which you’ll learn about below.

  1. Muladhara, the Root Chakra

The root chakra exists in the perineum—the tip of your tailbone. After a traumatic experience, your root chakra may undergo instability regarding grounding, primal energy, survival, safety, and security. When you address this part of the body, you encourage your will to survive.

  1. Svadhisthana, the Sacral Chakra

This chakra pertains to sexuality, relationships, pleasure, and creativity. It will sometimes overlap the root chakra at the womb or sacrum. Sexual abuse may shut this chakra down, leaving you to question the ability to desire another individual lovingly.

  1. Manipura, the Solar Plexus

This third chakra located near the stomach hones inner strength, vitality, self-control, and assertiveness. After a bout of trauma, you might find it challenging to establish boundaries. Healing the solar plexus restores control and power.

  1. Anahata, the Heart Chakra

Naturally, the heart chakra pertains to feelings of love, along with compassion, forgiveness, and self-esteem. If you have experienced a history of abuse, you might relate feelings of love with distress, shame, and pain.

Thus, healing Anahata allows individuals to establish a sense of love without pain and become open to trust and affection.

  1. Visuddha, the Throat Chakra

The throat chakra is home to expression, communication, and speech. Damage to Visuddha can leave individuals feeling strangled or suffocated, and incapable of saying.

Alternatively, a healthy throat chakra enables open honesty and promotes active listening.

  1. Ajna, the Third Eye Chakra

Located between the brows, Ajna associates with intuition, vision, insight, and psychic awareness (ESP). Traumatised individuals might only predict adverse outcomes and perceive every threat. Furthermore, they will question their intuition.

Exercise this chakra via healing therapy to correct and expand your field of vision, simultaneously eliminating emotional threats.

  1. Sahasrara, the Crown Chakra

This final chakra is located on the crown of your head and connects individuals with a higher consciousness or inspiration. Perhaps the most spiritual chakra among all seven, damage to Sahasrara may leave an individual feeling disconnected from reality and their spiritual selves. As such, getting better re-establishes a sense of connectedness and ability to cope.

Conclusion

Negative emotions are energy-draining, disrupting vibrational frequencies. By clearing these energies, you learn to come to terms with traumatic events, regardless of how long your unique process takes. Begin your spiritual healing journey with Paul Ramsden, a fully-qualified hypnotherapist with expertise in challenging anxiety and depression. Book a group or online one-on-one session an unburden yourself with a transformation energy healing session that will leave a profound effect on your spiritual self.
