EP 80: How to Get Over Anxiety with Nicole

EP80v1This episode is about freeing yourself from pain and anxiety. Today’s caller, Nicole, is struggling to find her true intuition. She feels it may be lost to her, or clouded over by her deep-seated anxiety. She has used her anxiety for many years to protect herself, but she now realizes it is time to get over it and on with it. We made a beautiful discovery together I hope helps you connect some of the puzzle pieces in your own life.

The wonderful thing about pain and anxiety is that we have the power to free ourselves from it. Many of the overwhelming feelings we are having now are rooted somewhere in our past. Something devastating caused our young minds to create a program to follow, so we didn’t have to feel that way ever again.

As we grow, the ability to address our fears, and overcome our ‘victim story’ becomes available to us. We are able to comfort our younger selves by self-parenting and through work that is healing.

We also have the ability to acknowledge our need for protection, thank it for its service to us, and move our energy to where we need it now. We can then replace our impulsive responses with our inner voice, which is guided by our intuition. When we find our higher purpose, we find another more self-honoring, self-supportive way to get it.

Consider/Ask Yourself:

  • Do you suffer from anxiety? Is there something you would like to be free of?
  • Whenever you try anything new, does it come with a lot of fear?
  • Do you prefer control over uncertainty?
  • Did something happen in your past that might still be impacting you, but you are not sure what to do about it?

Nicole’s Question:

Nicole has anxiety-driven panic attacks, and lacks self-confidence. She longs to have a deeper life and become connected to the world.

Nicole’s Key Insights and Ahas:

  • She uses her anxiety as a source of protection.
  • She needs to feel she is in control of a situation.
  • As a child, she felt vulnerable.
  • Her intuition will be clearer when anxiety subsides.
  • She needs to respond rather than react.
  • It’s OK for her to make mistakes.

How to Get Over It and On With It:

  • She should tell her younger self, “things will be alright.”
  • Say, “I accept,” and then, “I am choosing to.”
  • Interrupt the patterns of anxiety.
  • Turn up the volume of her calm inner voice.
  • Understand the difference between resignation and acceptance.

Assignments:

  • Think about the “big deals,” or significant events in your life. What belief systems were formed then, that might be impacting you today?
  • Tell yourself the things you needed to hear during your “big deals.”
  • Understand that it was not your fault.
  • How does your protective mechanism serve you? Give it a new job description.

EP 79: Stop Self-Sabotaging and Go For Your Goals with Drew

ep79v3This episode is about self-sabotage. Today’s caller, Drew, is an inspiring entrepreneur who has overcome odds such as being homeless and obesity but he is still getting in his own way.

I acknowledge Drew for being honest, real and raw during our call. He is a seeker who is committed to his growth. He truly believes he is worthy and is committed to shifting.

Often, we doubt ourselves because we haven’t made the changes we want, or haven’t achieved as much as we would like. The discomfort that comes from the feeling of not living into our potential, and the seeker who emerges from within us, are feedback to let us know we are well on our way. We do not optimize ourselves overnight. Part of living into our potential is feeling and dealing with the pain of not being there yet. It’s how we polish the diamond of our spirit.

The problem is we label it as suffering because it’s uncomfortable. What if feeling a desire to transform is a symptom of being a seeker? It’s important to keep going. You will eventually feel a shift. You will start feeling less pain and more purpose. Your focus will shift from yourself to your mission and vision. You will heal core wounds and let go of limiting beliefs. This will attract different things into your life.

What you do is not as important as how you do it. Allow your choices and subsequent actions to come from a place of self-love, acceptance, and service.

A podcast I did with my friend Aubrey on his podcast is a great supplemental resource to this session with Drew. We talked a lot about self-love, judgment, and the inner critic. The Aubrey Marcus Podcast #89 — Self-Love and Psychedelic Medicine.

Consider/Ask Yourself:

  • Have you overcome huge obstacles, but still don’t feel over the hump, or are still facing large obstacles?
  • Do you feel like you have something to prove, and is it often the fuel that drives you?
  • Are your self-worth and self-love conditional?
  • Do you have an expectation to be strong and confident, but feel rejected on the inside?

Drew’s Question:

Drew would like to know how to stop self-sabotaging himself and how to find the strength to pursue and achieve his goals.

Drew’s Key Insights and Ahas:

  • He knows he is not broken.
  • He feels he needs to prove himself.
  • He sees himself through a lens of judgment.
  • He puts conditions on his self-worth.
  • He has a huge, low ego.
  • He has felt invisible and rejected most of his life.

How to Get Over It and On With It:

  • He needs to create a daily practice around own his worth.
  • He needs to become a better friend to himself.
  • He should remove the conditions he puts on love, acceptance, and worthiness.
  • He needs to stop trying to prove himself.
  • He should use the Release Writing exercise in Expectation Hangover before meditating.
  • When he feels himself drifting into self-sabotage he should remind himself of his why, his worth, and his true value, and feel love.

Assignments:

  • Examine what is driving your behavior.
  • Write out your conditions of worthiness.
  • Write out new rules, or the truth about your worthiness.
  • Try a heart meditation. Allow love to fill your entire physical being.
