More on anxiety

Anxiety isn't one single emotion, it manifests when we've forgotten how to feel all of our emotions and there's a build up of unfelt emotions all compacted together. Our nervous system hums with these unfelt emotions and we can feel this in our body.

That's exactly why anxiety can feel so awful and that's why we so often avoid it, which only compounds the issue. It might pain you, but you need to go back to the events and themes in your life that hold the most emotional charge and tap on them. Everything that hurt, and still hurts you in others words. This is why Gary Craig's personal peace procedure is so effective. It gives you a practical strategy for releasing what can seem overwhelming and frightening.

Being able to release anxiety involves a new way of being in the world. It means you become more willing to be honest about how you really feel, even if that is just with yourself. This is so you don't bury your true emotions until they become a mountain that you can't ignore or push aside. That's exactly what anxiety can often feel like, a huge insurmountable mountain, but it doesn't have to be that way. You can choose to feel your emotions, especially the difficult ones ... and tapping can really help with that.
