I’ve suffered with anxiety ever since I can remember🤔, although I was so disconnected from myself that I didn’t know what it was until I embarked on my healing journey.

I never had paid real attention to why I did drugs & alcohol. It obviously made me feel better & calmed me down but it never occurred to me that I struggled with anxiety & that I could work on reducing it with healthier & many different natural ways like breath-work, meditation & exercises🏋🏻‍♂️

For me, anxiety shows up as a feeling of having a darkness sucking hole in my solar plexus😖. It’s attached to some sort of feeling of dread, doom & nausea🤢

When it’s severe enough, it moves higher up into my esophagus & then into my throat. Usually when I’m nervous, I tend to gravitate towards emotional eating but if I’ve hit a higher level, I can’t eat at all & I gag at any thought of food🤮

The black hole in my solar plexus hasn’t really left since the beginning of the pandemic. It seems to be there permanently at different levels but if I pay attention, I can work on calming the pull of energy storming into my body from the outside. This outer energy takes up so much space that I forget about myself & there is no more space for me😓

Now that I have had a lot of time bringing awareness to it, I understand it better. When the vortex in my chest is big & heavy, it’s because I’m letting too much of the outside energy in, it means that I’m not aligned & that I need some space & aloneness, so that I can go within🧘🏻‍♀️

Being aware & understanding how our anxiety or negative emotions show up is huge. It helps know ourselves better & gives us the opportunity to improve our wellbeing by finding new healthier ways to cope & take care of ourselves.

So If you haven’t been paying attention, I encourage you to try to stop & do the PAUSE several times a day. This is how we reconnect and discover our true selves, by being mindful😌, aware👀 & finding new ways to respond…. this is how we heal💫

Do you know how anxiety shows up for you? If you do & have found positive ways to deal with it, please share your “secrets” with us so that we can use them too🙏🙏🙏
