Using LOA to Resolve Panic Attacks
Some conscious creators find their manifesting skills to be useless in the face of a full blown panic attack. Here’s how fellow creator and guest poster Namaste Faustino successfully overcame anxiety using his LOA knowledge …
Are you experiencing anxiety and/or panic attacks?
Are you a student of the law of attraction?
I used my knowledge of the law of attraction to beat the anxiety and panic attacks that I started experiencing last year.
When I began experiencing those two miserable twin terrors, I immediately began googling for a solution.
I was annoyed to find that nobody had a decent answer that didn’t require meds (no offense to those who go this route, just not my thing). Because I had nowhere else to turn, I set about finding a solution for myself, here’s what I figured out …
Anxiety and panic are caused by thoughts about the future a person is living into.
You would think that this fact would be glaringly obvious but it’s not. None of the research I did online pointed out this insanely obvious fact. If a person wasn’t worried about the future, the panic/anxiety wouldn’t be there.
Once I had pinpointed that the anxiety/panic was due to my fears/concerns/worries about the future I began looking for solutions.
That’s where I hit a wall. There was nothing I could do about the future I was living into. I was going to be quitting my job and relaunching a business. I couldn’t stay at my day job, they’d already cut my pay and cut my hours. Getting another job in my industry was out of the question as everyone was experiencing the same thing.
Since I couldn’t do anything about the future I was living into, I had to figure out a way to not be anxious/worried/concerned about it.
Initially that seemed impossible, slowly but surely though I figured out the only reason I was experiencing anxiety/panic about the future was because I was living with “one foot in the real world” and “one foot in the law of attraction world.”
I don’t know if I’ve ever felt more confronted in all my 29 years of consciously creating. You can’t get around this one. Either you are consciously creating your future or you’re hoping you are but you’re really not.
If you are, you have nothing to feel anxious or panic about. If you aren’t, then of course the future can be filled with all kinds of terrible scenarios. It’s either one way or the other.
I wasn’t about to start considering myself a half assed conscious creator so I began asking myself the following questions…
- What proof/evidence do I have that the law of attraction is real?
- What proof/evidence do I have that I’m able to use the law of attraction to attract my desires?
- What proof/evidence do I have that the only reason I’m NOT experiencing something I want is because I, and I alone, am blocking it through the resistance I have to it?
- What proof/evidence do I have that removing the resistance I have to a desire ALWAYS causes it to be attracted into my experience?
- Why does this knowledge allow me to totally relax about my future?
After answering those questions (you can read my answers in my original facebook post here) I thought I’d solved my problem completely! I was so relieved.
Then a few days later I found myself dealing with night terrors (that’s what the rapper Kid Cudi calls anxiety attacks in his hit The Pursuit of Happiness) at 3am again, I lay there frustrated, angry and confused. Eventually I went back to sleep.
As soon as I woke up again, I reviewed my answers and again felt relief. That’s when I realized that I was going to have to answer those questions on a regular basis. The proof/evidence was undeniable but apparently I was going to have to answer and review them until I had the info memorized.
Answering these questions over and over again brought the info to the forefront of my mind. When the anxiety/panic kicked in, I’d remember the answers and I’d immediately settle down. This helped tremendously but one more thing needed to happen for me to get the panic/anxiety totally under control.
I realized that LIFE HAPPENS FOR ME thanks to this Ted Talk that Jeannette sent me (watch 4:53 to 7:20 for the part about life happening for you) and a conversation I had with Boom Boom Bangarang. Learning this and talking about it were good, but the life changing impact came from answering this question …
What proof/evidence do I have that life happens for me?
Answering this question was incredibly eye opening. Every single time I’d thought that I was in a hopeless situation, another door magically opened for me. I guess the reason I didn’t see this before, that well being really is the basis of the Universe like Abraham Hicks talks about, is that the door that opened wasn’t always a Disneyland pleasant experience. However it was always exactly what I needed to take the next step towards my dream.
Continually answering the law of attraction questions and the evidence of life happening for me question has allowed me to beat the anxiety/panic and get back control over my life. Once again I’m reminded that Napoleon Hill was right, “Every negative has a seed of an equal or greater positive if you look.”
Today I’m so thankful for the anxiety/panic attacks. Those two things have developed me into so much stronger of a conscious creator and have caused me to feel so much more at peace about this crazy thing we call life.
