Healing Evolution

The demand for healing and coaching has risen dramatically over the last 20 years worldwide. In my search and education I have not seen the two combined. Here at Healing Evolution the aim is to heal from the past, understand setbacks, learn from experiences. At healing Evolution the offer is on the individual as a holistic being. Many Life coaches (no offence intended) deal with people that already know where and how they want to venture into life. I want to walk from the past, to your present, successfully to the future.

Good Morning Beautiful Earth Travellers,

It has been a very long time since I have put finger to keyboard. To give you a basic breakdown of our week last week, which will lead to the explanation of our subject today: My daughter was requested to leave the school premises, she has ADHD, a letter of requests was handed for her return, we as parents cannot cover such requirements, in turn, leading to her not being in school. On Friday we saw the child psychiatrist, medication given, this lead to a child having heart palpitations, zombified, and having two seizures on Sunday. If I say I died a little inside on Sunday, it is no joke.

Remember that I took us a step back, and maybe the universe had been guiding me towards speaking about this particular subject, we are on the road of phobia recognition, but Healing Evolution, decided to explain anxiety and the types of anxiety one can experience.

Situational or phobic anxiety arises only in a specific situation and differs from everyday fear. If you have a disproportionate apprehension about driving on the freeway, going to the doctor, confronting your spouse, this may qualify as situational anxiety.

This type of anxiety becomes phobic when you start avoiding situations: you do not drive on the freeway, go to the doctor, talking to your spouse. In other words, phobic anxiety is situational anxiety that includes persistent avoidance of the situations.

Often anxiety can be brought on merely thinking about a situation. When you feel distressed about what might happen when or if you have to face one of your phobic situations, you are experiencing what is called anticipatory anxiety. I do suffer from this, and at times badly. When the head rules the rest and “plays out” a scenario.

In its milder forms, anticipatory anxiety is indistinguishable from the ordinary “worrying”. But sometimes anticipatory anxiety becomes intense enough to be called anticipatory panic.

There is an important difference between spontaneous anxiety (or panic) and anticipatory anxiety (or panic).
Spontaneous anxiety tends to come out of the blue, peaks to a high level very rapidly, and then subsides gradually.
The peak is usually reached within five minutes, followed by a gradual tapering-off period of an hour or more. Anticipatory anxiety, on the other hand, tends to build up more gradually in response to encountering – or simply thinking about – a threatening situation and then unusually falls off quickly.

You may start worrying yourself into a frenzy about something for an hour or more and then let go of the worry as you find something else to occupy your mind. Here lies the catch, taking control of the racing mind, like wild horses that got spooked and running as if their life depended on it.

In order for us to move forward and understand the world with the anxiety, phobic disorders, we need to appreciate how the ‘disorder’ is composed.

We will take slow small steps in guiding you towards this revelation. You may find an explanation of your own composure, or maybe an understanding of an anxiety disorder in a child or a friend.

Let it be known that anxiety is a normal every day inevitable part of life, then let us walk you through where birthing of constrains within you happened.

Short read for today, and forever hopeful that you find guidance.

Blessings

Good Morning Beautiful People,

Gracious Galactic travellers, today, we are taking a step back. And it is story telling time.
We at Healing Evolution feels, that phobias are very important, but we do not want to side step any anxiety disorders out there either. Those are also very real.

My eyes have opened so much with the research I have done, it is mind blowing and I think at times my brain will explode, but everything I have read on has given me a different perspective on the world around me. From sharing a very personal experience, and I will continue to do so from time to time, it has dawned on me that many of us struggle silently. We feel the world does not understand us, we are in our own little bubble… ANXIETY.

“Susan awakens suddenly almost every night, a couple of hours sleep, with a tightness in her throat, a racing heart, dizziness and a fear that she is going to die. Although she is shaking all over, she has no idea why. Many nights after getting up and pacing her living room floor in an attempt to get a grip on herself, she decides to go see her doctor to find out if something is wrong with her heart…

Cindy, a medical secretary, has been having attacks like Susan’s whenever she is in a confined public situation. Not only does she fear losing control over herself, but she dreads what others might think of her if this were to happen. Recently, she has been avoiding going to any kind of store other than the grocer and unless her partner is there to help. She has been forcing herself to go to work, yet after a couple of minutes with her office crowd she starts to fear losing control… She feels, she HAS to leave…

Steve has a responsible position as a software engineer but he feels he is unable to advance because of his inability to contribute to group meetings. It’s almost more than he can bear… just to sit in a meeting, let alone voice his opinion. His boss asked him to do a presentation, having him leave, slamming the door, thinking about resigning…

Mike is so embarrassed about a particular fear he’s had over the past few months that he can’t tell anyone…not even his wife. While driving he is frequently gripped by fear that he has run over someone or an animal… even though there had been no “thud” to substantiate this fear. Mike will turn around to go and check if he had run over anything… causing him to be late for appointments, fearing driving, as there is no control over him “driving over something”.

What is happening here?

All of the above people share something, anxiety. Yet note this is no ordinary anxiety. Their experiences differ in two fundamental respects from the “normal” anxiety people experience as responses to everyday life.
Firstly, their anxiety has gone out of control. In each case, the individual feels powerless to direct what is happening. This sense of powerlessness in turn creates even more anxiety, such a vicious circle!

Second, the anxiety is interfering with the normal functioning of their lives.

Susan is not sleeping, Cindy and Steve may lose their jobs, Mike has lost the ability to drive in an efficient and timely manner.

This describes four types of anxiety disorders: panic disorder, agorahopbia (see closely knitted), social-phobia, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Later on, we will detail each specific anxiety disorder.

But firstly, let us look at the common theme that runs through, we will touch on the nature of the anxiety itself.

THE NATURE OF ANXIETY:

One can better understand this by looking at both what it is, and what it is not.
Example, anxiety can be distinguished from fear in several ways… When you are afraid, your fear is usually directed toward something concrete. The event that you fear lies within the bounds of possibility. You may fear a deadline, failing an exam, rejection, or paying your bills.

Fear, can be associated by a surge of adrenaline, thoughts of immediate danger, and a need to escape.

But when you experience anxiety, on the other hand, you often cannot specify what it is you are anxious about. The focus of the anxiety is more internal, than external. It seems to be a response to a vague, distant, or even an unrecognized danger.

You may be anxious about “losing control” of yourself or a situation. Or you might feel a vague anxiety about “something bad happening”.

Anxiety, affects your whole being. As a phobia, only affects a certain object, place, anything tangible, remember?

Anxiety is psychological, behavioural, and physiological reaction, all at once.

On a physiological level, anxiety may include bodily reactions such as rapid heartbeat, muscle tension, queasiness, dry mouth, or sweating. And sitting here I have some of these mentioned reactions, for no apparent reason…

On a behavioural level, it can sabotage your ability to act, express yourself, or deal with certain everyday situations.

Psychologically, anxiety is a subjective state of apprehension an uneasiness. In its most extreme form, it can cause you to feel detached from yourself and even fearful of dying or going crazy.

Anxiety, can appear in different forms and at different levels of intensity. It can range in severity from a mere twinge or uneasiness to a full-blown panic attack, marked by heart palpitations, disorientation, and terror.

Anxiety that is not connected with any particular situation, it comes “out of the blue”, this is called “free-floating” anxiety, in more severe cases… a full-on panic attack. This can look like a heart attack.

If you experience four or more of these listed symptoms, you have panic attacks:

Shortness of breath
Heart palpitations
Trembling or shaking
Sweating
Nausea or abdominal distress
Choking
Dizziness or unsteadiness
Feeling detached or out of touch with yourself
Hot flushes and chills
Fear of dying
Fear of going crazy or out of control

If your anxiety only responds to a specific situation, it is called “situational anxiety” or phobic anxiety. We will continue our journey here tomorrow…

Looking at both sides, phobia and anxiety will also broaden our knowledge base, as they do walk hand-in-hand at times, and should be regarded as “friends”

I know we have spoken about anxieties before, however I feel the more we look at phobias, the more we should be aware of the impact an anxiety disorder have.

May you have a blessed day, happy excavation of your authentic self and the world around you

Shuveny Neferet Bower
