How to Transform Anxiety

A trick to transform fear and anxiety into something useful.

Did you know the physiological

experience of fear and anxiety is

nearly identical to the physiological

experience of excitement?

Think about two people sitting next

to each other on a rollercoaster.

They're both gripping the rail.

They're sweating.

Their hearts are beating.

One is terrified and one can't wait.

What's the difference?

The meaning that we're

placing on the experience.

Are we telling ourselves that

we're excited or we telling

ourselves that we're terrified?

A lot of people when they're feeling

anxiety and fear, try to calm

themselves through mindful breathing.

That can work, but often a quicker

way to alchemize that fearful energy

into something useful is to visualize

the experience going amazingly well.

Chances are, your mind is thinking about

everything that could go wrong or fail.

Shift that imagery and shift those

thoughts to something positive.

And what you'll most likely start

to notice is that energy in your

body starts to feel more like

excitement rather than anxiety.

Try this out next time you're

looking to shift fear and anxiety.

Thank you for your practice and take care.
