My 5 top tips to soothe Anxiety…
I wanted to share what I have learned as a healer but also what helped me during my own experiences with anxiety. Personally, I no longer have anxiety, it stopped as suddenly as it began but I do remember feeling powerless because it seemed to be controlling me! I supported myself with diet, early nights, treatments and I am not sure what was the final piece of the puzzle but it stopped as quickly as it began! At the bottom of this page I will share what the last thing I did before Anxiety disappeared from my life! and this is what I learn’t.
So; lets begin by discovering who anxiety likes to hang with ~ fear, worry, powerlessness, hopelessness, helplessness. Anxiety is present more often when we feel stuck in life, unable to make choices, or when other people or life are making all the decisions for us and finally it can be involved with a little self sabotage + being a victim!
Oh dear! There are so many layers to anxiety; so can I ask you begin by treating yourself with kindness whilst you are experiencing it? How does that sound ? and if you keep reading to the end ~ there is a nice surprise for you!
No 1…GET CLEAR. If you knew 100% knew what was causing your anxiety what would you say it was?
Now….. your 1st response will be “I don’t know” but close your eyes, drop down into your heart AND if you did know what was causing your anxiety ~ what would you say? I do this for anytime I answer a question with “I don’t know” ~ try it you will amazed!
When you do experience your anxiety?
Morning ~ Are you putting too much pressure on yourself to be superwoman + too busy?
Evening ~ Has the day taken too much energy from you?
All Day ~ there is something deeper needing to be addressed ~ do you know what it is?
Periods/Peri men-o-pause ~ What aspects of your life are draining you?
In what area of your life are you over-committed ? What do you know needs to be done differently? What is the 1 step you could take to make a change?
By getting clear you can begin to access your strengths + perhaps gain a fresh perspective on your health + lifestyle..
No 2 ~ Present Moment Meditation ~ to help you feel more connected, empowered + open to what is….
Get curious about your anxiety by getting to know it ~ its trying to tell you something!
- Sit or lay + rest your hands over the part of you that feels the anxiety + breath softly into it + blow the breath away until empty
- Notice any emotions or feelings that surface without judgement

- How am I feeling? What am I focusing on? What do I need? What can I do NOW to soothe my anxiety?

No 4 Guided Relaxation
Long term anxiety wrecks havoc on the bodily systems; you just cant see the devastation until your health begins to suffer + you don’t know why! Guided relaxation will restore your energy so that you can meet life’s challenges rather than trying to survive or recover from them.

Ok! I promised I would share what was the final thing I did to rid Anxiety ~ I told it to “f—- off” cos I am over feeling anxious, I have nothing to fear and am not putting up with this s—- anymore! I was alone and could speak aloud + forceful. I made the decision not to take it (or anyone else’s s—- anymore)! It worked + that was 5 months ago!
