As someone who has suffered with anxiety myself I understand how debilitating it can be. Sweaty palms and butterflies in your stomach are the least of your troubles when anxiety sets in.
The more I have travelled on the spiritual path, the more I have been able to get a handle on my anxiety. In fact, my anxiety rarely gets the better of me these days.
Learning how to cope with anxiety is possible. There is a solution out there for your anxiety, so don’t lose hope.
The first step to dealing with your anxiety is to understand it. While there is no “black and white” to understanding anxiety, I believe there are 3 types of energy that can cause anxiety:
1. Sensitive Energy Anxiety
A lot of highly emotional, intuitive and sensitive souls suffer from anxiety. This is because they are picking up on the energy around them all day, everyday. This can cause a lot of anxiety, especially if they are unaware that they are sensitive and prone to picking up other people’s energy or energetic debris in their environment.
If your anxiety is made worse by being in social situations, by being in a certain environment or when around certain people, it could very well be due to your sensitive soul.
2. Future Energy Anxiety
This anxiety is often experienced by those who think a lot. Over-thinking can generally lead to worry and worry can generally lead to anxiety. This type of anxiety is usually rooted in questions- “but what if this happens?”
Often this anxiety can be brought on by not knowing something or wanting to control situations that you can’t actually control. This type of anxiety can also come on when having to make future decisions or when thinking about the future.
If your anxiety is very worry-based or if you experience increased anxiety when having to make decisions or when thinking about the future, it could very well be due to your over active-mind and imagination.
3. Ascension Energy Anxiety
This anxiety is generally experienced when a lot of physical and energetic changes are occurring in your life. These changes may also bring shifting energy within you, which can cause you to feel all over the place and anxious.
Ascension anxiety may also bring new thoughts, confusion or a general feeling of uncertainty, and this in turn can also contribute to anxiety.
Ascension anxiety often occurs during awakenings or periods of great change and upheaval. Often the anxiety can come on before the changes begin, almost like you are picking up that something is about to change or shift in your life.
There is a lot of crossover with these types of anxieties, but by separating them it may help you to understand where your anxiety is mostly coming from.
Dealing with Sensitive Energy Anxiety
As a sensitive soul, it is very important to protect your energy and remain aware as to when you are picking up on other people’s energy and when it is your own. Things that can help you with this include-
- Protecting your aura
- Cleansing your space and releasing energetic attachments
- Imagining a white light or energetic shield around you
- Grounding rituals
- Journalling or having an outlet for your emotions
- Meditating to strengthen the connection you have to yourself
- Removing yourself from situations that make you uncomfortable
- Strengthening your intuition
- Owning your empathic or clairsentient gifts
Dealing with Future Energy Anxiety
Future anxiety starts in the mind, so the more you can tame and relax your mind, the less likely you are to get swept away in a flurry of anxious thoughts. Dealing with future anxiety starts by learning how to surrender control and tame any worrisome thoughts. Here are some suggestions to help-
- Make peace with your over-active mind
- Give yourself an outlet that helps curb your thoughts such as creative projects and exercise
- Be mindful of eating sugary foods as this can worsen an overactive mind
- Learn the art of letting go and don’t try so hard to control things
- Meditate to help calm your mind
- Use mantras or positive affirmations to replace worry-filled thoughts
- Try not to take your life so seriously and trust in the Universe’s plan for you
- Stay in the present moment
Dealing with Ascension Energy Anxiety
The best way to deal with ascension anxiety is to understand that it is all part of the process of raising your level of consciousness and shifting your life. The more you can bring acceptance to the feelings you are experiencing, the easier it is going to be to surrender to them. Here are some other ways to deal with ascension anxiety-
- Grounding rituals
- Being at peace with not having all the answers
- Surrendering and enjoying the process
- Bringing your awareness to growth
- Strengthening your intuitive or spiritual gifts
- Practicing deep breathing exercises
- Releasing any energy blocks or stagnant energy
- Using energy healing or crystal therapy
- Focusing on raising your vibration
Anxiety manifests in all of us differently, but essentially anxiety is just a wave of energy. When that wave of energy comes in it is often held under the grips of our fears and ego, which turns the energy into a feeling of anxiousness.
When you can learn how to tame and release that wave of energy, you will no longer be in the grips of your anxiety.
