“The Most Common Way People Give Up Their Power Is By Thinking They Don’t Have Any.”
There was a time in my life where life went fast, painfully fast. I was in an anxiety trance and didn’t even realize it. I couldn’t feel (no emotions), I couldn’t hear (too internal), and I couldn’t see (again, way to internally focused). The anxiety trance is a seemingly never-ending journey of coping and managing to get by, but that simply isn’t good enough.
There are 4 states of the mind which are:
- Beta – Normal awake state, busy, many thoughts, very active mind
- Alpha – Day dreaming, relaxed, meditative
- Theta – Deep trance, inspirational
- Delta – Asleep, no conscious awareness
Most people during awakened hours go through life in a beta state rarely tapping into the power of the alpha, or theta. This may come as no surprise to many considering the pressures we feel from the world. We have to be the best employee, best husband/wife, father, friend, driver, time manager etc.
“I Started To Understand Myself Only When I Destroyed Myself. In The Process Of Progress And Recovery I Began To Realize Who I Truly Was.”
This sort of endless focus on being perfect everyday can make a person very imperfect. Its draining, and depletes people to the point where thinking becomes painful. For me the very thought of taking control of my life was painful, I always searched for the quick cure for my anxiety trance, health anxiety, generalized anxiety etc, with no real lasting success.
