How to calm Anxiety

Anxiety steals your happiness. Anxiety is the main reason why people smoke, overeat, drink and take drugs. And it affects so many other things. Do you have problems with sleep? Are you on-edge, nervous all the time? Nothing ever goes right for you? Do you overthink things? When chronic anxiety is part of your life, everything is difficult.
You need to fix it. If you don't fix it, you open yourself up to chronic stress. Most anxious people try to ignore it. They tell themselves, "This isn't real. It is temporary. It will pass. It has passed every single time." And it has. But it always comes back.

Not dealing with your anxiety creates low self-esteem and lack of confidence. Fears  creep up on you slowly. You don't even realize it's happening. You can get so exhausted by anxiety you create a loop. It can run away on you. Anxiety causes more anxiety. Do you still want to be like this in ten year's time?

Someone trained in finding and removing unconscious feelings, the things that drive your anxiety. As soon as you see your anxiety for what it is, you can deal with it.

"I tried everything. Meditation, veganism, yoga, mindfulness, CBT, Reiki... you name it, I have have done it. The thing that finally worked was proper therapy. Not counselling, not support groups, not Facebook chats or affirmations. As soon as he showed me the sources of my chronic anxiety, what it was really about, it was over. I was able to let go of my baggage. And miraculously, it all stopped." Jodie Jordan, Aspen House.

How to Calm Your Anxiety Attack With These Great Tested Tips

  • Think of names or objects that start with every letter of the alphabet from A-Z.
  • Think of 5 things you can see, then 4 things you can hear, then 3 things you can feel, 2 things you can smell, 1 thing you can taste. Go through all the senses.
  • Touch something cold. Or put a cold can on the back of your neck.  Then think about exactly where the cold is, and notice how the feeling changes.
  • Stay busy. Go and wash down the sink vigorously, or get out the vacuum cleaner. Get every crevice really clean.
  • Breathing colors. Inhale a color, and exhale a different color. Count slowly as the color moves in and out.
  • The physiological sigh. Breathe in deeply though your nose. Top it up with another in-breath. Hold a moment, and then release it slowly out through your mouth. Can repeat several times.
  • Go hit a ball. Focus on getting better accuracy until the anxiety goes.
  • Start adding numbers to see how far you can go. Example 1+1=2, 2+3=5, 3+4=7, 4+5=9, so on.
  • Speak to your anxiety. Treat it like a person. Give it a name.  Ask 'what are trying to do for me, Gloria?' 'How long are you going to be here, Humberto?'
  • STOP technique. Stop. Take a breath. Observe. Proceed.
  • Use the 4x4 method. You breathe in for four seconds, hold your breath for four seconds, breathe out for four seconds,
  • Challenge the thoughts. Say to you thoughts "OK, come on then, do your worst. Bring it on!" When nothing happens you will find the thoughts and voices not so scary after all.
  • Break up the task into tiny bits. Focus on the first bit only. Do that bit and then focus only on the next bit, and so on. Do get anxious about all the things that could go wrong before you finish the task.
  • Go out. Go out and exercise. Go for walk, a run or a jog, depending on your fitness level. If you can't go out while you wait for the water to boil, dance on the spot. Do drug addict aerobics.
  •  Imagine you are standing at a country train station. Your thoughts are the trains.  Some are express trains roaring by. Some are slow local traffic.  Just wave them on.
  • Take a 2-minute cold shower. It shocks your system out of the anxiety cycle.
  • Picture yourself as a child. Then repeat the thoughts you are having, and direct them at that child. How does it make you feel, telling an infant she is a complete failure? You will soon see how silly it is.
  • If you have a pet, pretend your pet is the one with the anxiety. Help your pet through it. Tell your pet you love it, cuddle, reassure and comfort it until it is OK again.
  • Repeat a mantra. "Right now I am washing the dishes. I don't know what might happen, but right now I am OK washing dishes and I am OK".
  • Laugh at it. When you are getting bad thoughts or trapped in cycle of blame, ask yourself 'What would Yoda say?" and imagine Yoda saying some wise but dumb comment.
  • Repeat over and over - "Nobody ever died of a panic attack."
  • Picture yourself in a big circular room in your head. There are doors all round the walls. As each thought or worry comes up, bundle up the worry, open a door, and push it out.

What is Anxiety 

Everyone has stress

Anxiety is normal. Having some anxiety is a natural survival mechanism. Everybody needs some level of anxiety: it helps us to recognize danger and to stay out of harm's way. Anxiety is only a problem when we have too much of it and worrying becomes a way of life.

But you should not be feeling anxious about travelling, meeting people, going to work. Other people are not thinking about you. There is no reason to feel anxious.

For some people, ordinary everyday things can be very frightening. Sometimes the feelings become overwhelming. You get panicked. You feel like you are going to die. That is a sign that you need to seek help.

It not just you who suffers: it affects your family, friends and people at work. Knowing they are being hurt eats away at your self esteem and confidence all the more.

Anxiety: chronic anxiety; phobias; and panic attacks.

The most common type of anxiety is called generalized anxiety. This anxiety seems to have no specific cause. This typically gets worse over time. Trying to face it or forcing yourself to ignore it often makes it worse.

About five percent of the population suffer from this but few seek treatment. Most don't realize they need treatment or that treatment even exists. There are very effective treatments available, including hypnosis for anxiety.

Even  if you have generalized anxiety, you can get into the level of calm and control you want.  You can learn to control intrusive thoughts and feelings.

Chronic anxiety

This occurs when you not aware of any reason for feeling anxious. But you can't stop worrying about the future. Because there is no real reason for it, people start worrying about why they feel anxious. This  causes even more anxiety, and so the problem gets worse.

People with chronic anxiety manage to keep the process under control most of the time. But the anxiety never lets up. It's a constant effort to control your anxious thoughts. The never ending pressure is itself stressful. So the problem feeds on itself.

Hypnosis for Anxiety

Panic attacks anxiety

Anxiety can arise from a single event at work. Or a relationship break up. Or some crisis hits you.  Maybe you went through a long period of stress and frustration.

That stress is then applied to other areas of your life. Even though the crisis is over, part of you cannot let go of that stress and anxiety response. It is as if your switch is stuck at On.

If left uncontrolled, this can lead to panic attacks. Panic attacks are frightening, but not actually dangerous. Nobody ever died of a panic attack.  Most panic attacks are more about the fear of an attack happening in front of others. It's not the panic attack itself.

What causes anxiety attacks?

Everything we do, everything we see and hear, triggers a process in our subconscious mind. Your focus goes 'inside' to look for matching experiences from your past. When you find a matching experience, you do the same thing that worked for you the last time.

That is how you know how to react to every input from your eyes and ears. This process is instant and automatic.

Imagine you see someone eating a red apple. Your mind jumps to your memories around 'eating an apple'. It might include memories of red things in general.

Your mind will rapidly flick through its 'filing cabinet'. It examines everything it remembers about apples, red, round, eating. It will flicker through thousands of images, memories and feelings.

These  are always there, but outside of conscious awareness. When an image or memory is revived, it triggers a reaction. That is what your memory is for. It tells you how to react. You can ignore it, run away, fight it, or appease it.

In the brief instant that they flicker across your mind, the normal  person will react to one or two. This might trigger fear, sadness, anger - any emotion. Other memories will trigger nostalgia, or happiness.

For an anxious person their reaction to the retrieved images is distorted. Their reaction is always fear. This sets off feelings or alarm or threat. They are not even aware of the cause.

They get upset, frightened, anxious every time they do the same activity, or see the same thing. If it is one specific thing, then it is called a phobia. Phobias are specialized type of anxiety. There is a whole section on Phobias.

Anxiety arises when many things trigger the fear reaction. Eventually it feels like everything triggers it.

The session with you was really great!  I had a really powerful response for the following five days after seeing you. It was great.  I was full of energy, food wasn't an issue, I felt more in charge of things.  Went to gym more and some walks with the dog.  

I did notice the energy surges reduced gradually after that, but still I was feeling quite sharp.  Gradually now this past week my appetite has come back and my gym sessions have stopped again - I think this is due to the negative feelings/pressure re work again.  My anxiety has definitely reduced .  Theresa Delicado

Derealization Anxiety Result

Patricia told me, "I have night time teeth grinding, bruxism".  She said, "I have been hypnotized before". "I didn't like it because he kept wanting to go back to my childhood. He said he "needed to deal with the anxiety that was causing my problem."

"I could see no reason why I should go back to childhood. So I refused."

"I also didn't like it because he made me tell him something private. I told him about a teenage termination. I had never told anyone about that. At the time, I couldn't quite believe that I actually let it out. As far as I am concerned, the termination is irrelevant."

"I am from a Catholic family, yes. But God has forgiven me. I feel okay about it. But the other hypnotist kept going on about it. So I didn't go back to him!"

The not-so-perfect childhood

She told me that she had a normal childhood. In her mind, there is no connection between her upbringing and her teeth grinding. I kept asking her about her family life, and gradually she opened up, bit by bit.

She said that her mother was domineering and bullying and always finding fault. Her father was distant and reserved, an introvert. He seems to have had some kind of depressive illness. She loved her father because he never criticized her.

Her mother was clearly depressed. As we talked about her family more and more relatives were brought out who, now that she thinks about it, have got various types of anxiety illness.

Growing up, she and her sisters knew there was something wrong with her mother. But like all children, they decided it was their fault, not hers.

Outcome of an unpredictable childhood

The result is that she has very low self esteem. She has a constant nagging feeling that never goes away.  In school she did badly. People thought she was on drugs. "At that time,  I felt that I was never there in my mind. I spent a lot of time 'unconnected' to things."

"For long periods I felt that I was an observer of my own actions, feeling like a robot. Not in charge of what I was doing and thinking. "

This is called derealization. It is a classic indication of childhood anxiety.

In general, she is a very spiritual person. She spends a lot of time in her own unconscious mind.  She said that she is highly sensitive to things. Highly strung. Little things affect her.

She thinks she has  ADHD. She said that until she was in her 40's she had a problem with blushing in the presence of other people.

Fear of losing control

She's a bit afraid of hypnosis. Part of this is because she is afraid that if she goes into trance she will stay in that 'spacey' frame of mind. "I might not be able to get out of it. When she was younger I would stay in it for months."

"I am scared of what might happen to me in hypnosis. Suppose you do change me. I won't know who she am! What if I become some unknown new person? Maybe I will become someone I don't like."

She was so nervous of what change might bring, that it took a long time to get her to agree to any therapy at all (40 minutes). She finally agreed when I said I would be with her every step of the way. And I would be there to get her 'unstuck' if she got stuck.

Exploring  unconscious memories

Because she has a generalized anxiety, there is only one memory to aim at. So I got her to focus on her feeling of "something might go wrong". I focused on how she feels now, not going back to childhood.  It took a long time for her to relax enough to  even look for that feeling.

I was asking her if he had the feeling, but she would not answer. I could see she was clearly resisting having the feeling in her body. It seemed to me that she was very afraid of going back to whatever it was from childhood that was coming out.

But when she got the feeling, it was obvious. She began twitching and grimacing and occasionally jerking as she went into the feeling. Her mind did not like it one little bit. But she was clearly in trance. There was something happening as I was talking to her, but I wasn't sure what.

I was trying to lead her into getting the feeling to turn into an object. But I was getting no feedback from her at all, even though it was obvious that something was going on.

To my utter surprise, she then woke up and said to me, "it's gone." She told me that I was saying "let the feeling come out". But in her mind the feeling was actually going in, going away, going deeper.

Her lifelong anxiety vanishes

And as it did, it was getting smaller and smaller, until it was just a pinprick. She later said that was like a black ball. She felt it go inward until it was a tiny point. After she came out of trance on her own, I got her to flick the last of it away.

She actually did the entire metaphor therapy process on her own. As soon as she was aware of the fear as an object, it started to change and disappear. When your mind is ready to shed the fear, the 'object' often changes by itself.

She said afterwards,  "I have had a feeling of dread my whole life. And I wasn't aware of it until this thing went away. And now I realize that I don't feel it anymore. Now I will be able to sleep at night!"

It's time to stop wondering. Get it done.
