6 Simple Ways to Lessen Anxiety by Raising Your Confidence Part 2

In my two previous blogs Word of the Year and 6 Simple Ways to Increase Your Confidence, I share insights on how this came to be for me. I do not know about you, but I am sick of people talking about things they have never been through.

Anxiety

It is a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome.

Anxiety can shatter one’s life, relationships and so much more.

The biggest crush is the one to you. I am talking about disappointment. How many times have you tried to not worry- “I’ve got this,” and then whamo, 10 steps backwards. It is a vicious cycle that is often misunderstood.

Misunderstood

Anxiety, Misunderstood, Raising Confidence Magical BlessingsA lack of confidence can bring forth much anxiety and vice versa. Once upon a time, I was fearless, nothing and no one could smash my hopes and dreams. I was a master manifestor and the epitaph of confidence. Unfortunately, a family circumstance began to seep its vengeance into me. The scariest part is that the divergence was not obvious . It was a slow unseen infiltrator.  Little by little worry and doubt began to show up. It festered in such a way that was mostly oblivious to me. Experience after experience brought forth illness and I was provide my continuance of living via another’s donated bones.

Poof Just Like That

This time it became much more intense. Just what is happening?

I became an anxiety machine, but not the kind that was out in the open. Rather I was a closet anxiety mongrel. This lead to an unhealthy domestic violence relationship and the anxiety grew worse.

I do not write this for pittance, rather for your relief.  I understand what it is like to have no fear, become full of fear and work this out of my system. Been there done that and I am still evolving, exploring and growing

Blasting Through The Anxious Worry

Anxiety, Raising, Raise, Confidence, Magical BlessingsIn order to heal, I needed to deeply forgiveness myself for being lead into this matter. Next, I cleared myself over and over with much love, light and plenty of those who held the key for me to heal. I just had to ask for these keys. Sorry, there is not one answer. Rather it is like having a personal riddle to unraveling.

Unraveling I did, along with disavowing, dispelling and anything from this or past life times.  This takes patience, tears ( well at least for me). I used to not cry and now, oh boy watch out. That’s okay I realized that this is not a curse, but a benefit to feel so deeply. And it is also okay to ask for assistance; there have been times when I really tried to clear something from me, but I am too close, so I needed others to help me.

Real and Raw 

Anxiety became my go to fall down and fall back. Again, I am not looking for pity, rather let my experience be your teaching tool and key to your success.

Turning the Key to Success

As I began to turn the key, I found less anxiety. Most of all I began to see through the clearing my dashed confidence. Step by step I discovered ways that built my confidence. Each step of confidence made me less anxious. This is to not say that I do not have anxiety, I do; it was much less.

Anxiety is my Super Power

Sounds silly, crazy and it probably is; yet, I feel so deeply and discovered what my anxiety looks like and feels like. This helps direct and guide me to boost my confidence.

6 ways to Lessen Your Anxiety and Raise Your Confidence

  1. Give yourself opportunities for you to succeed. No one gets to measure how big or small your opportunity is; this is yours and yours alone. Own it. Succeed at it. Boost you up!
  2. Practice how to handle life’s stressors. The art of practice and the art of talking to yourself is a great tool. This can help you prepare for an opportunity. It can help you weave in and out of the emotions, fear and help you soar to success.
  3. I am so much more when I am me Authenticity Authentic Truth True YouUse Lavender. This is a great plant and essential oil to help soothe, calm and relax you. If you are a lady dab 1-2 drops on a cotton ball and tuck this in your bra.  Or as a dude, you could dab 1-2 drops on a cotton ball and tuck this in your shirt pocket. Voila a great aroma and aromatherapy at the same time to soothe and calm you.
  4. Explore something new for you. Go an adventure new or re-visit an adventure. I used to pick a place on a map and go hike in a park. I discovered so much about me while exploring the beauty of nature.
  5. Move your body. Get up, get a movin. Even if it is for 15 mins. move your body. This could be gentle stretches, yoga, a nice stroll. Kick it up and run if you like.
  6. Just Do it! Don’t even give yourself time to think about it. This is a major anxiety stressor and opportunity killer. Count backwards 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and boom do it.

Heart Chakra Energy Healing

Loving Yourself through Your Heart Chakra

The Heart Chakra is associated with the color green and sometimes pink. This is our embodiment into love, compassion and empathy for self and others. This is the very center of you of how your grow, thrive and simply enjoy life.

 

RELEASE AND CLEANSE

How often do you hear or read just release and let it go.

Or cleanse this out of your system.

However, what does this truly mean?

 

LIGHT ENERGY

We are energy light beings who thrive on energy.  This energy very much brings us expansion. Now close your eyes and imagine the Northern Lights.  Our inner light very much dances in harmony with our energy just as the Northern Lights.

 

Heart CHAKRA IS Green

This inner light helps empower our bodies.  We moved into meditation with my blogs about Solar Plexus,  Sacral Chakra , or Root  Chakra to help align these Chakras.  Next, we will work with the Heart Chakra; the Heart is the color green and sometimes pink.  The color green appears all around us.  We wear it, eat it and use all of our senses to enjoy the color green.

 

IMBALANCED Heart CHAKRA

PHYSICAL

An imbalanced Heart Chakra may show in the form circulatory problems, high blood pressure, heart palpitations, heart attack and lung issues.

Ways to Love You

Loving Yourself

EMOTIONAL

This can show up as loving in a wild manner, lack of proper boundaries with family and friends, say yes to everything and everyone with no personal benefits, co-dependency, tolerating too much as lacking sufficient emotional self-care.

 

SIMPLY DIVINE

Energy healing seems complex; and in some ways it can be; but mostly the Divine Spirit wishes for this to be gentle and simple.  Or what I like to call Simply Divine. One of the Simply Divine ways to help re-balance your energies is through nourishment.

NURTURING OURSELVES

Northern LightsClose your eyes and place your hands just above your navel.  Imagine a green colored mint  just above your navel. The mint is delicious and sweet . There is an green light that flows from the mint.  Imagine the light dancing just above your navel region; just as the Northern Lights dance in the sky.  Ask Spirit to help you illuminate your navel with this syrupy green light.  Let this pour into you.  Inhale and exhale in a natural rhythm that syncs with your heart beat. Sit like this for 5-6 minutes.

Say: 
I am open to love.

I forgive me. 

I am open to loving me.

I am wanted and loved. 

 

NOURISHING OURSELVES

Matcha Tea Green Mint Heart Chakra Food brings forth good energies or bad energies depending on how we choose to nourish ourselves. I do not know about you, but I love tea.  Add 1-2 tsp Matcha Green Tea to cup. Pour hot water into a cup. Next, add 1-2 mint sprigs.  Seep for 2-3 mins. You may drink this hot or cool.  Enjoy the Mint Matcha tea.   Swish this in your mouth, swallow and allow this to flow down your throat. Envision this flowing all the way to your heart and flushing this all around the heart. Spreading and flowing in a fluid manner with your love-filling you in this region and expanding throughout you. The light energies of the Mint Matcha tea pulses through you. You are connecting and balancing yourself in a sweet manner full of Divine Love of Spirit

13 Ways to Let Go of Anxiety

Anxiety can show up in a variety of forms; sometimes it shows in the most unexpected moments. Please do not worry nor fret.  Everyone has anxiety from time to time. For some this may be a moment that passes in time and others can become stuck in the anxious pool.  What is the most important is the lack of judgement when one has anxiety showing. Rather this is more about how to let go of such.

Anxiety can be the repeating of worries, concerns and fears in an unhealthy manner.  It is like a switch turns on and an obsessive mantra begins over and over.

What Anxiety Can Look Like: 

Physical form:

There are a couple of concerns that may occur.  One is the physicality of anxiety showing in your physical body:

  • heart palpitations
  • sweating
  • trembling/shaking
  • chest pain
  • shortness of breath
  • numbness or tingling
  • tense muscles
  • headaches
  • neck tension

There are times when a panic attack arises and the physicality of the situation mimics a heart attack.

Emotional Form: 

  • feelings of apprehension or dread
  • anticipating the worse
  • trouble concentrating
  • feeling tense or jumpy
  • irritable
  • loss of memory; feels as if wiped the slate clean

* please note that this is not medical assistance; however I have worked, guided, taught and helped many to release, let go and see another way to handle their anxious moments.  

Ways That Anxiety Can Show

  • nail biting
  • picking at hangnails
  • self-harm
  • throwing up and/or bulimia
  • insomnia
  • fear of objects or items; using this as an excuse to not do something.  Afraid of spiders so, refuse to garden.
  • refuse to attend parties or other activities because afraid to speak to others.
  • perfectionism
  • living in the past with enormous flashbacks
  • OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder)
  • doubting yourself over and over

breathe calm meditation lavender anxiety 13 Ways to Let go of Anxiety

You have choices when anxiety shows up in your life.  Either fight it or learn from this. If you have severe concerns or physically harm yourself, please seek medical assistance. 

  1. Stop resisting anxiety or anxious moments. This makes it worse. Letting go does not mean stopping. This means registering, re-learning a better way to proceed when anxiety arrives.
  2. Accept that you cannot “control” everything or everyone. You are responsible for yourSelf; take good care of you.
  3.  Use or write positive affirmations.
  4. Commitment to yourSelf to learn a new way of being. Re-train your body and mind.
  5. Meditation. Use a meditation app, take a meditation class.  Guided meditations are a great way to begin.
  6. Be gentle with yourSelf.  If you made a mistake; so be it; this is not a life sentence.
  7. Let It Go, Let it Flow, Doom, Gloom, Bloom Anxiety AnxietiesLet go of the past and the future.  When you release a hurt or a worry then you are able to be in the present; this is where you can have fun, thrive and feel alive. Go away doom and allow you to bloom.
  8. Write it out.  Journal about this. Allow yourSelf to free form and flow the concerns or anxieties from you. Or use writing prompts.
  9. Paint or Draw what shows up for you.
  10. Gentle stretches or yoga
  11. Reiki is a natural relaxing technique that can help calm you.
  12. Sing , listen or play music.  Music is said to calm the savage beast.  Let the music flow over your sound waves and be present with the music. Pick up an instrument and strum, drum, pluck away the stressors.
  13. Spray lavender essential oil spray or burn a lavender scented candle.

I have personally worked, guided many individuals with anxiety along with myself.  It took many years for me to understand that the pain in my body was anxiety.  Many of the anti-anxiety ideas have arisen due to my or a dear heart needs for restorative calmness. As a parent of Autistic individuals I often found myself in the midst of anticipated outcomes; just in case a meltdown occurs.  As my sons have grown older, the need for anticipation has lessened and yet, it has taken years to relax, release and restore myself in a harmonious manner.
