The Invitation of Anxiety

Firstly, it’s never wrong or something to be fixed or suppressed. We tend to want to make it wrong. Our body – in its infinite wisdom communicates with us and gives us signals when we either aren’t listening or holding ideas, thoughts, and beliefs that aren’t serving where we want to be. So, the point is to make your body right. How can you make space for experiencing a different outcome other than, “OMG this is so bad, I don’t want to feel this way, why do I feel this way?” We can insert anxiety with work situations here, or food choices, or how we judge ourselves and our body.

Repressed and suppressed energy manifests itself as physical symptoms.

Feeling the discomfort is our body's wisdom, not necessarily something we need therapy for, or to fix, or medicate.

The body is saying stop – you're creating an unwanted future. How can we listen?

The reason it comes up is because things are ready to resolve, but you have to tune it and allow it.

How can you flow with life/work/etc. Remember, everything always works out for you, the universe/God has your back, I can go with the flow, life is simple.

Your body will register to the degree you aren’t functioning at those frequencies.  It’s not so that you feel bad and have big problems to be figured out. It is because you are invited to something higher and your body is checking in with you like “Are you sure you want to hold onto this?” If you don’t feel the heat, you wouldn’t move your hand off the stove.

So thank you body for registering this pain. “ This is not what I want to choose or create.”

This awareness helps release resistance and move through life fluidly instead of holding onto ideas not serving us.

Be willing to receive anxiety in any situation that you feel it because it’s an invitation to release it. Again, its not wrong to feel it.  Making it wrong adds to the suppression/old emotions.

Celebrate your body and its infinite wisdom. Decoding the messages your body gives you is an art, which only requires practice.
