Anxiety disrupts and overwhelms countless lives. It robs you of the ability to feel present and joyful as you succumb to an avalanche of fear and distress. Anxiety exists at epidemic rates. One in four people struggle with this disorder, so you're not alone.
Traditional western medicine and therapy propose that the best you can do is to learn how to manage your anxiety. This belief is both misinformed and damaging. You can overcome anxiety. And often without meds.
Anxiety is due to your relationship with your beliefs and thoughts. When your thoughts attach to fear, anxiety is the necessary result. You can learn to break free from the torrent of fearful thoughts that imprison you.
When your thoughts look for the reassurance of certainty and you avoid uncertainty, the result is anxiety. This tendency also results in narrowing your experiences as you try to ward off the unknown.
Another feature of anxiety is an over-reliance on analyzing. If you live life as if you’re playing a chess match, you’re not in the flow of life.
