Incapable

AnxietyHello Anxiety, My Old Partner

I awoke this morning with a pain in my upper belly. I am on vacation with a friend, about to discover the joys of Sedona. I have no apparent worries, nothing I have to do, nowhere I have to go! Yet, I awoke with this pain. Diving into the pain, I realized it was linked to anxiety, that old sidekick. Even after all these years of learning about myself, and especially all the work I’ve done around the anxiety, it still rears it’s annoying and sometimes painful head in unknown situations such as this.

When I planned this trip, it was with a bit of trepidation. I frequently feel fear when scheduling new things, and especially when a different locale is involved. But I felt ready for the challenge and eager for the experience of exploring beautiful Sedona!

Today, after a minute or so of feeling the stomach ache, and realizing it was related to anxiety, I asked my spirit guides, “What is this?” And their response was “You feel incapable.” Yes, I feel incapable of any and everything! Thankfully, I had a concrete answer! There have been times when I’ve felt so anxious, I couldn’t hear myself think, let alone hear an answer from my guides! This time was different.

Dive Into the Feeling

I knew what to do. I dove into the feeling again. I said to myself, over and over in my mind, “I don’t feel capable. I don’t feel capable. I don’t feel capable…” and my body relaxed. Why, you may be wondering, does this work at all?

The body and the mind want acknowledgment. What am I feeling? The truth, to my physical and emotional being, is that I feel incapable. It’s a matter of stating the obvious. If I deny my core feeling of being incapable, nothing happens. That’s a form of inner resistance. I know that the deep feeling of being incapable, that harkens back to much earlier times in my life, is the next part of me that needs acceptance.

You may also be wondering, “What about using positive affirmations?” Yes, sometimes affirmations work because they distract us from the uncomfortable feeling. But in my experience, affirmative sayings don’t work as well or as fast to calm me. And the fact that I have secreted cortisol, which makes the feeling more intense, and makes me want to run away from the “saber tooth tiger” of my mind, doesn’t help. Cortisol is a fight or flight hormone that, once secreted, takes about 20 minutes to dissipate in the body. Affirmations have a hard time cutting through physiology!

Acknowledge the Feeling and Set Yourself Free

So I stated the obvious to myself. I don’t feel capable. And what happened within a few minutes was that my pain disappeared and I fell back asleep. I know this because a few minutes later, due to the initial cortisol spurt from my adrenals, I woke up again, and my pain was gone. I was so glad. And I kept repeating how I felt, “I don’t feel capable.”

After about a minute or two of stating the obvious feeling of being incapable, and because I felt so good now, I decided I was ready to switch over to a positive affirmation that resonated well with me. What came into my mind was “I am full of Light. Light fills every part of my being. I am a being of Light and Love.” I repeated that affirmation and took the healing to an even higher vibration, to joy. And then the thought came to me to share this experience with you.

I look forward, now, to a day of joy and discovery. I feel excited. And I hope, in my heart of hearts, that this experience of mine helps you, too, to treat yourself with gentleness.

Namaste.

Treating Anxiety with Reiki — the Effects Are Real… And Medically Approved!

Treat Anxiety with ReikiAs an anxiety sufferer, I can attest to the healing effects of Reiki for the psyche. We know that anxiety truly is a body/mind/spirit condition, and Reiki addresses all these areas!

Reiki helps clear unwanted patterns and conditioning

Having undergone psychotherapy and having used medication for 12 years for anxiety, I can vouch for the efficacy of these modalities! I’ve used EFT tapping and acupuncture as well, which also are very beneficial. The added benefit of a self-Reiki practice has been a literal godsend to me! Practicing Reiki daily since my attunement in 2007 has kept my awareness of Spirit moving in my life constant. It works deeply to help me clear unwanted patterns and conditioning, which are big components of anxiety. And it brings peace.

Break the negative energy

When my clients come in to see me for anxiety, I scan their energetic field. The aura around a person carries a lot of information about us. I use my intuition to interpret the data and guide the client to the core issues. The key is openness and readiness to look at what may seem “unsavory” past experiences.

But to be clear, if the readiness isn’t there, Spirit won’t reveal the underlying problem or push you to work on anything you don’t want to work on. The process is a gentle one, filled with total acceptance and a feeling that Spirit honors each person for their willingness to courageously work on core issues to allow the healing to happen. All the while, the lovely Reiki energy is flowing to clear old detrimental belief patterns and spiritual/emotional blockages. At the same time, the energy is deeply calming and soothing. And the energy keeps working for days, and even weeks after the session is completed!

Experience the soothing and freeing nature of Reiki for yourself!

A good way to try out Reiki is the group event we call “Guided Meditation, Ear Acupuncture, and a Reiki Blessing,” which will be held this Sunday the 11th of February at 1pm. To learn more and sign up, CLICK HERE.
