My Baby is Leaving the Nest

My eldest child is leaving for college in 3 days.. Need to do something about how I’m feeling inside. I decided just this minute to do an exercise of Inquiry from Byron Katie, Loving What Is:

I’m afraid that my daughter won’t be able to handle herself emotionally at college. So I will do “The Work” on this statement.

My daughter won’t be able to handle herself emotionally at college.

1. Is it true?

Yes.

2. Can you absolutely know that it’s true that your daughter won’t be able to handle herself at college?

I needed to get still and sit with this for a good few minutes. Ok.. No. Continue reading

Surprisingly Wonderful Benefits of Inner Body Awareness

a343f1dc73d758c6774c6a0d891a330dFor the past 2 or so months, I have been learning about and practicing focusing on inner body awareness to achieve a state of stillness in the present moment.

This is where you concentrate on feeling the energy or aliveness in your body. For those of you that don’t yet know how to do this, I will show you later in this post :)

But first I want to share with you some of the wonderful benefits I have noticed by doing this pretty consistently. Now of course my thinking mind always tries to take over, but I am finding with practice that being present in the moment through inner body awareness gets easier and easier. My hope is that you will give this a try for yourself and make it part of your daily life… Continue reading

Learning to Say Yes to Life

65d99876b699d741e96d86aa81edc32aLiving with fear and being defined by what your anxiety tells you what you can and can’t do is a recipe for misery. It is frustrating, constricting, makes you lose your self esteem and takes the spontaneity and joy out of your life.

When anxiety is lurking in the background, you feel it and know it’s there. You live your days hoping and praying that it won’t strike and cause a panic attack. And you are never free.

As you know, these last 2 months I have been using the gifts of Present Moment Awareness as well as the 60 Second Panic Solution program.

Every day is a new opportunity to learn more about myself and learn more about living in a state of calm without projecting onto old mind patterns… Continue reading

Anxiety Relief: Give Yourself Permission to Get Better

courageI received a comment from a reader in need in my last post and felt it would benefit all of us to share it here.

It is so very important to remember that anxiety relief is available to all of us- regardless of what makes you anxious, or how long you have suffered!

Of course, your Anxiety would have you believe otherwise. My reader, Husan, has the 60 Second Panic Solution, but has struggled with anxiety for over 30 years.  He suffers with profuse sweating, panic attacks, and social anxiety… Continue reading

Working the Program Daily-One Month In

39f6872e92832eb6f2c7fd4584461fc7I need to start this post by saying that I never knew that life could be so kind and so beautiful to live. Daily life is no longer a struggle but an opportunity for more happiness.

My daily practice now is to start my day with the Alter Picture Audio CD from the 60 Second Panic Solution Program. I know that practicing mindfulness or meditation for even a few minutes a day has healing and sustained benefits throughout the day. The audio is 11 minutes long. The effects are cumulative so I am giving myself this gift every day.

In addition to the audio, I use the early morning to go over different parts of the program as needed to get me ready to face my day in a calm and confident state. Continue reading

Update on Using The 60 Second Panic Solution Program

The past 10 days or so have been a wondrous journey of healing for me. I have been using my new program, the 60 Second Panic Solution, non stop on my commute into work.

After my near miss with a panic attack and anxiety after I first started doing the program I decided to commit myself to the program 100%. No half- ass measures

I am truly at the point where I want to be free. I want to be healed and happy once and for all. I don’t want to be a slave to my anxiety anymore. I have been waiting most of my 48 adult years to feel this well and calm… Continue reading
