Handling Anxiety, Loss and Fear

When people come for readings, they’re usually in pain.  Whether confused, frustrated, or in grief, there is a common denominator. Can you spot it? 

When letting go of loved ones, we all tend to long for the past and more time with those who have died and fear not having those times again.  When faced with financial insecurity, we’re fearful about tomorrow.  Regarding things we want: relationships, jobs, spiritual growth – fears of imperfection and shame can arise.  All of these common trials sound dissimilar, but there is a common denominator.  

We are afraid we won’t get what we want or we are afraid we will lose something. Fear.  It’s at the root of all of these problems.   Fears get produced in the mind, so they can be addressed there.

Which leads us to some solutions.

It helps to clear the mind, or meditate.  (Other ways to clear are relaxing activities, engaging in hobbies we love, and exercising – where we have to focus the mind completely, or where we automatically release excess energy.)  Remember that saying: there’s nothing to fear but fear itself?  Well, it doesn’t apply when you’re being chased by a lion, or when you need to run away from a hurricane, but it does apply to most of the situations people go to psychics about!

So, fear is the basic problem.  What do you do when you feel afraid?  Sometimes, in human relationships, it’s just a matter of setting healthy boundaries.  Does that work for you?  If so, please share!  And…

Did you know that there is a way to stop the fears from rising in the first place?  

I think there are several ways to do this, and asking your angels helps, but here are two other ways.  (House pets are great role models of both of these methods, so if you need some practical techniques, watch your dog!)

One way is to center your mind and recall present time consciousness.  Pulling our thoughts into present time keeps the mind off of unrealized future worries and past problems. 

Acceptance of our situation is a great first step that brings us back into the present moment. 

Unconditional love can be tricky, but it’s another key. 

It actually releases us from the fear of shame, which is a big underlying fear driver in our society!  Being loving with ourselves when we are imperfect and when we are not meeting the status quo can actually melt away the anxiety right then and there!  Try it.

Love trumps fear every time! 

I hope that helps with any anxiety you may have right now.  I’d love to hear your own stories and tips.

In joy and peace,

Lisa Atkinson

Grief & Surfing

Grief is not an easy process. Often, it comes in waves.

Sometimes, our own feelings of guilt or remorse about what was left unsaid can stop the natural flow of healing.  Writing letters to loved ones is a great way to express any unfinished business.  It’s not always easy to be honest, but forgiveness is the best place to start: forgiving the departed, of course, but more importantly – yourself.  Moving these difficult emotion can be extremely challenging.  I think the key for most of us is to keep the love and support streams flowing in our lives as we learn to say goodbye to what we lost and embrace the next phase of our relationship with our departed loved ones.
