Every emotion takes a hit now and again, but the stigma surrounding anxiety is pretty much constant. The range of experiences that are connected to anxiety also complicate matters in knowing what to do to improve the situation.
Let's break out of looking at anxiety as something to overcome by learning it's message, what questions to ask in order to engage with it and how to ensure it's actually the emotion of anxiety in the first place (if we've misnamed, we're still lost).
First session is free, who's ready to engage with anxiety in a brand new way? Sign up below!
What if it's not anxiety?
The damage done when we avoid anxiety is costly, because in suppressing all that energy it comes back magnified in its' intensity. But what if it isn't anxiety that you are feeling? Getting clear on what anxiety looks like (and doesn't look like) is key.
Emotion intensity levels occur on a spectrum as well. When can you navigate anxiety and when does it get unworkable?
Being able to identify and name our emotions correctly opens such huge potential for awareness and change.
Freedom from the misidentification of anxiety opens so much space for anxiety to be given some much needed solo attention.
Let's start building some emotional intelligence skills.
Anxiety is present within our behavioural structures of how we get things done. We fall into one of two styles when navigating anxiety (or a combo of both). Let's discover your style to better navigate and understand how anxiety is working for you in your life!
Do you wait until the last minute to complete tasks or do you get things done way far ahead of time? Understanding how anxiety rises and responds uniquely in you is key to noticing when and the circumstances needed begin to bring your attention to task completion and planning. What are the signals sent? When do you notice them?
Procrastinators get ready, this week has the power to really shift your perspective!
The Time Traveller.
Anxiety works in different times. It's the future planner, a past harvester and present in its' actions. With its' get it done purpose, the energy of anxiety can be destabilizing if not understood and creates some of the difficulties we experience when navigating this emotion.
Without knowing the underlying purposes of anxietys' time travel functions, getting caught up in patterns of obstruction can really throw off our equilibrium in the present moment.
Anxiety - Emotion Tending Alert System
Would it surprise you to know that anxiety works as an alert system for all other emotions when they need attention? Anxiety rises to draw you to where emotions are present, but sometimes we miss that message and are confused as to why we are feeling anxious.
Releasing the focus from anxiety always being about anxiety and opening to what other emotion is calling for your attention can really shift your working relationship with anxiety into something new.
Which emotions are partners to the way your anxiety works?
Knowing that anxiety often shows up with other emotions is sometimes a surprise. What if anxiety is arriving as a helper alongside another emotion, but its' energy and arrival throw you off your channeling skills.
Being able to take note of your anxiety partners is a powerful asset to being able to channel the energy anxiety brings forward.
Emotions often play together, diving into those connections up-levels your skillset and emotional intelligence.
Each anxiety workshop is 70 minutes with the instruction and experiencing spanning 45-55min with the remaining time left for live Q&A. Times are always PST.
There will be engagement and reflection questions for during the week in between workshops in order to connect more with the information from the last session.
A total of 7 live on Zoom workshop hours for the whole wellness series.
As 2022 draws nearer, dates will be announced.
Maintaining a steady group dynamic with consistent progress is really important to learning, so chapters 3-6 are only available together. After the second workshop attendees will have the option to sign up for the remainder of the series for if they haven't already purchased the package.
Best value is jumping in for the full experience, yet the option to try out 2 sessions before committing is available.
If you have been looking for new perspectives, skills and channeling abilities for anxiety this is entirely the space for you. Anxiety doesn't have to be the cause of constant disruption and added difficulty to your life, it can be a resource of energy, help you get tasks completed and heighten your awareness to all of your emotions overall.
In working with anxiety there is a growth phase, so if you are not in a space to be able to navigate some change or the level of emotion intensity that occurs completely disregulates your life as a whole, I would recommend waiting until a better time or reaching out for supports better suited for that level of activation with your doctor or counsellor. The group dynamic is wonderful community for learning and implementing new skills into your life, yet not suited for unaddressed trauma healing in its' first stages.
