4 Steps to Relieve Stress and Anxiety

How to get a “Sesh” (Session) on the run.

So you know how you’re surrounded with tons of crazy freaked out people talking about crazy freaked out things- like the freaked out economy, the freaked out people at work, the freaked out kids….

It’s hard not to get FREAKED OUT!!

Much of my work with clients is about neutralizing the triggers of their anxiety in their body so they can live their life with greater peace and hope.

But sometimes our body really resists letting it go, because whatever “IT” is has been a part of who we are for so long it’s afraid to be without it.  Our identity is tied up in these beliefs or fears…”Who will I be without this struggle?”  The unknown is scary.

Often our subconscious mind thinks it’s keeping us safe by keeping a sabotaging behavior or belief.  “If I don’t fall in love, I’ll never feel that pain of rejection again.” “If I stay overweight, people will stay away and I won’t get hurt again.” “If I don’t follow through with things or start this then I can’t fail.”

The following process is a very useful way to release something when you’re encountering resistance in “letting it go”. Use it when you are feeling any uncomfortable emotion or situation.

Step one:

Ask yourself, “Could I WELCOME this feeling/ belief/ fearWait a bit, then affirm “I welcome this now.” Let the feeling come in stronger and rise up in you, then you’ll notice it possibly begin to soften. Imagine it as a tantruming child just wanting to be heard. You just heard it…it quiets down.

Step two:

Ask yourself, “Could I ACCEPT this?” Imagine just living with it as your companion – something separate from you – NOT you.  Affirm “I accept this NOW.” Suddenly the child says to himself – “Oh, well, the screaming isn’t getting a reaction anymore…BUMMER.” You just took all it’s power away by welcoming it and accepting it’s presence.·  See it as a being at your side, NOT inside you.

Step three:

Ask yourself “Could I let go of wanting to change it?” If you make peace with that need then it is no longer a problem, and therefore no longer creates stress in your body.

Step four:

Affirm “I let it go now”

This process will more than likely either eliminate the anxiety or stress about the situation completely or greatly reduce it.
