I had a major anxiety crash for months a couple of years ago, I went to see a CBT and found that writing down what I’m thinking always me to see how it makes me feel.

BAM. Eff you anxiety.

Anxiety has plagued me since I was a wee-little girl, entering pre-school. It’s never really abated, except for the years that I was a raging alcoholic, and we know that doesn’t actually “work,” lol. I’ve been struggling more and more with an agoraphobic type anxiety that I was hoping would lessen as I gained more and more time away from drugs. A year into being clean, however, it’s even worse than it was before so now I’m working on finding a way to bridge the comfort I’ve learned to access in my Heart out into my interactions with the outside world. Your post is going into my “Anxiety Resources” bookmarks list :) Thank you and Love and Light~

When I started dancing again at 40, I had returned to my first love and so I found myself just CRASHING through fears — all for the sake of dance. I think when we are in alignment with our heart/soul’s purpose, when we are living with fully embodied passion, nothing can stand in our way. That is not to say I am not afraid — I am afraid A LOT but now that does not stop me. :)

You know, I didn’t used to be afraid of flying, but it hit me all the sudden a few years ago. Nothing on the level you’re talking about, but I do have to quasi-meditate when turbulence hits (even though I rationally know that’s the least likely time for a crash). Giving your mind something repetitive and calming to do is a huge help in fear situations.

This is a great concise list to refer to – what wonderful help you have given us. I’ve lived with anxiety for a number of years. I think it’s been both from peri-menopausal symptoms and also from lack of dancing. I was happy to see the comment about dancing, it reminded me that along with the breathing – which I use (like your square idea!) that even just thinking about dance and feeling motion coming from my core helps move the stuck energy around and release at least some of the anxiety.

I’m bookmarking your post. Thanks again!
