Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.”

Do You Suffer from Anxiety? Rule #1: Don’t Believe Your Mind
July 23, 2015 • 10 Likes • 6 Comments

If you’ve been suffering from anxiety for any length of time, you experience intrusive and unwelcome thoughts under a variety of circumstances, such as:

During periods of transition, where you don't know what to do.
During periods of disappointment, after something has “gone wrong.”
During or after an emotional upset. The mind tends to latch onto and feed off unhappy events, making them worse with its own drama.
During sleep, when it’s difficult or impossible to guard your thoughts.
When waking up or falling asleep.
Here are some fearful thoughts from a client who had to move and didn’t have much money for the transition:

I'm going to be stuck in a hotel.
I won't find a place.
I cannot afford a place because I cannot pay the deposit and rent.
I'm going to run out of money.
I’m not going to be paid soon enough (for my work).
I'm not going to survive this.
I'm going to become homeless again.
Here are some guidelines to overcome your anxiety:

FIRST OFF: DO NOT BELIEVE YOUR MIND. I REPEAT: DO NOT BELIEVE YOUR MIND.
It is important to recognize the destructive nature of these thoughts and that the ego/mind is trying to strengthen itself and keep you buried in helplessness and fear.
Do not allow the thoughts to develop into a full-blown victim story, which can also pull others into your drama. The mind loves that.
Here are several things that you can do:

STOP THE INNER DRAMA BY TAKING SEVERAL SLOW, DEEP BREATHS.
Another way is to put all of your attention into your lower body, such as your stomach and breathe into that area. This requires focused attention. Doing so will take you out of the mind and its stories.
Decide to become present. You do so by focusing on an object in the room such as flowers or a chair. When you do that, your thoughts will naturally slow down and stop.
When fearful thoughts appear, allow them to be there without trying to change them. Resisting the mind or fighting the thoughts will only make the mental drama worse.
A useful strategy is to imagine you are in a movie theater, sitting in the audience and your thoughts are on a screen. This gives you some distance from them. Eventually, you will notice the thoughts no longer cause pain and, chances are, they will begin to dissolve. As they do, you will find your anxiety will diminish and vanish.
When anxiety manifests in your life, sooner or later you’ll want to run from it. Do not give into that urge. Face the pain, sorrow, fear, etc. directly and feel wherever it appears in your body. Do not allow the mind to create a story about it. Stay in the present moment as much as possible. Eventually, the feelings in the body will soften and dissolve.
Do not give into the fear. Facing the fear will cause it to lessen and dissolve but you must stay present with it. Running away will only strengthen the ego/mind and it will take you over every time a challenging situation comes up.
Conclusion

Nothing lasts forever, including anxiety. Even in the most difficult situation, the thought energy will eventually exhaust itself and you will be able to step out of the pattern.

The biggest difficulty is when the pattern is so strong that you are caught in the grip of the mind and totally identify with the thoughts. In this case you are completely at the mercy of the mind.

The mind will create all sorts of fears about future events, none of which are happening now; which might never happen. Even if they did, facing them would be easier than dealing with a thought created future over which you have no control.

Presence is the key to freedom from anxiety. As you follow the steps in this article and learn to free yourself from your anxiety you will find the thoughts that cause anxiety will begin to diminish over time.

Feelings are just visitors. Let them come and go.

“Since the ego is a derived sense of self, it needs to identify with external things. It needs to be both defended and fed constantly. The most common ego identifications have to do with possessions, the work you do, social status and recognition, knowledge and education, physical appearance, special abilities, relationships, personal and family history, belief systems, and often also political, nationalistic, racial, religious, and other collective identifications. NONE OF THESE IS YOU.”

do not worry for tomorrow, it has its own worries
move forward from the past, you can do nothing to change it
enjoy the now. it is a gift.
that's why it's called "present"
