EP:51 - 5 WAYS TO SOOTHE YOUR ANXIETY
(This video is recorded from a YouTube LIVE session)
We all have felt anxiety before, but it’s a little hard to describe.
It’s a little vague, and sometimes it’s general anxiety, sometimes it’s triggered by something.
Whether that be from trauma triggers.
Your boss at work.
Your baby going to school for the 1st time.
Whether or not you can pay your bills this month… so many things cause us to worry.
So let’s define it:
Anxiety is defined as a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome.
Let me help you out really quick first by saying, anxiety is normal. Everyone has anxiety. It’s a part of how we process what is happening around us. It used to be incredibly helpful when it alerted to us of danger. It was like a warning sign.
The tricky thing about anxiety is that it’s a little bit weighted because of how we view emotions in our culture. We’ve bought into the belief that if we are “healthy” we won't’ experience any negative emotions.
It’s like we should just sort of be flat lined.
Not too many highs or lows and honestly pretty detached from our emotions. Not feeling feels like health.
Not having anxiety feels like being healthy.
When in reality it’s so normal.
Think of it this way: anxiety is just a vibration.
It’s not actual real danger. It’s just a perceived threat.
It’s just an emotional vibration you are experiencing and we can soothe it when we are mindful about it.
But because I know that anxiety is something we just don’t face once, and this is going to part of our human existence, I want to give you the tools to be able to support yourself when it comes up.
SO let's look at the 5 Ways to Soothe Your Anxiety:
1. Release the Resistance
2. Practice Free Form Journaling
3. Engage Breathing
4. Use Essential Oils
• Prevent Panic Attacks Blend
Blend together 4 drops of geranium, 2 drops of black pepper, 2 drops of lavender, 2 drops of Melissa, 1 drop of frankincense, 1 drop of wild orange, and 1 drop ylang ylang with 4 teaspoons of fractionated coconut oil and a roller bottle if you have one or a glass dish. ✨Apply to the sternum, back of the neck and wrists 3 to 4 times daily.
✨Affirmation: "I am safe. I trust myself to handle what is in front of me. I have the courage to change. I am protected and held. Etc"
• When Panic Strikes Blend
Along with some slow deep breathing, apply 2 drops of lavender to the sternum in an upward motion toward the bottoms of the throat, then quickly add 2 drops eucalyptus in the same way on top of the lavender. Next place 3-4 drops of wild orange on the inside of the forearms and rub together. This helps to relax the chest and support the breathing and the wild orange soothes the heart and causes better cellular oxygenation. And breathe....
