A long, long time ago, in a faraway land, your ancestor is out hunting for food. Everything becomes eerily quiet. He’s being watched. The hairs on the back of his neck stand straight up, knowing a tiger is leering. Feeling his heart pounding, his breathing all but stops. Will his body respond to the screaming voice in his head…RUN, RUN for your life, or has immobilizing fear sunk into every facet of his being?
In today’s world, our stress never seems to have the opportunity to go away because our tiger, better known as: financial problems, illness, caring for an elderly parent, loss of a job and just every day worries that never seem to end.
We actually can’t be attacked by our anxieties any more than your house can be attacked by its alarm system. What we are experiencing are episodes of avoidable high anxiety and your fight or flight system that wants to keep you safe and away from danger.
What you want instead is to adjust your alarm system so it only goes off when there actually is danger. Like your house alarm being reset by a professional and working as it should rather than every time there is a storm. Your unconscious mind will learn how to feel comfortable and calm feeling the storms outside of yourself from a peaceful and safe place.
