Today on the podcast I’ll share with you some very important health anxiety tips to speed up the healing process. Enjoy!
The journey towards the label of health anxiety could have come from any direction. One moment could have caused the sensitivity to our sensations, or consecutive experiences could have affirmed the fact that a physical ailment was imaginably inevitable. Also, suggestions, beliefs and actions of others could have easily been the energies that embedded you with the programming that would become a health anxiety sufferer.
The best health anxiety tips are ones you can practically use right now.
Do you want to know what the greatest roadblock is for a health anxiety sufferer on their road to freedom? I call it the standing guard cycle. This cycle presupposes that if a health anxiety sufferer stands guard at the doorway of their body throughout each and every moment of their life, and reacts instinctively and fearfully to anything that may seem ‘abnormal’ to them in their body, they stay in the safe zone.
The safe zone is to be able to maintain this run of survival they have going. To hope for change but to run the same mental, emotional habits from day to day due to the formula that safety lies within worry, and safety lies within what’s been familiar. That is why the health anxiety tips today will speak to you deeply. Also, it would be beneficial to you to learn more about The Different Types Of Anxiety Disorders.
Standing guard represents tensing up the body, and living with rigid thoughts.
This is something the health anxiety sufferer doesn’t recognize though because they are solely concerned about the impulsive reaction to what they view as an abnormal feeling in the body. By standing guard though we tense up the body and internal organs causing an even greater amount of misinterpretations to any external stimuli that shows up.
A tense body picks up on other peoples language that may touch on the topic of illness instantly. A tense body will become 100 times more stimulated to sound, smell, and taste. As well, a tense body will perceive a persons past in a highly traumatic way, and view their future likewise. Hypnotherapy for Anxiety can make a difference.
Standing guard keeps the anxious identity in tact, in fact strengthening it by the day.
The longer a paradigm, or a set of habits have been in place the more difficult it becomes to break. Why would your inner child begin seeing the external information and the world in a whole different light? It kept you alive up to now didn’t it? It did, but it sucks to live by standing guard constantly.
If the unconscious mind/body wants to stand guard, that’s fine, that’s it’s job anyway which is to keep you safe and to keep you happy. But the conscious mind doesn’t have to join in. This is where these health anxiety tips come in, to alter your attitude completely.
The conscious mind upon recognizing a lengthy period of standing guard can break free through the power of mindfulness and begin partaking in a new viewpoint over the sensation it feels. This viewpoint can be strengthened through evidence. Evidence that supports good health and that supports your ability to change who you are, and evidence that supports your ability to use logic even in the moment of deep sensitivity and question marks.
It’s in our abilities to question the subconscious program where we have the ability to change for the better.
Standing guard although practiced many times, holds little power behind it. The cycle is easily breakable the moment a person holds up a white flag, and continues by riding the wave, therefore slowly and surely moving focus elsewhere. Evidence gets built through this non action, the subconscious mind begins to alter its level of sensitivity, and the body begins to secrete less and less adrenaline and cortisol leaving the person searching for where the sensations may have disappeared to.
Your job today as someone going through these health anxiety tips is to understand your level of standing guard. Do you stand guard in the morning upon waking with higher levels of cortisol because you went from unconscious to conscious? Do you stand guard in the evening upon listening to the news and being flustered by the events around the world? Or do you stand guard pretty much all day everyday no matter what?
Get to know where you are at then begin listening to the whispers, the whispers that promote wellness and good health.
Health anxiety sufferers are health people physically. It’s just that they have to get healthier emotionally and therefore energetically. Beyond Anxiety is a book I highly recommend you read to understand more on the process of healing and what to expect.
Riding the wave comes with caution by the subconscious mind. It fills you with negative emotion and sensation because it gets you acting on it. Riding the wave goes against the very thing every part of us wants us to do, and is the very act that leads to freedom. However, this freedom will come at a price. That price is to sacrifice all your comforts in return for vulnerability and uncertainty. If you can commit to that, these health anxiety tips will greatly enhance your clarity starting today.
