In today’s fast-paced, hyper-connected society there’s an undeniable increase in people experiencing varying degrees of anxiety. We get loads of emails from our listeners about how they are suffering from all sorts of anxiety. At the top of the list is health anxiety followed by fear of having an anxiety attack. Dr. Demartini and Shann dive into the conversation discussing the relationship between fear and anxiety.
Points covered in the episode
John shares his view about anxiety being a form of fear.
“Fear is the assumption that you’re about to experience in the near or far future through your senses or imagination, more pain than pleasure, more negative than positive, more disadvantage than an advantage, or more challenge than support from someone, some event, or something.”
We discuss the triggers of anxiety, understanding the benefits of anxiety and the value of understanding what is at the core of suffering.
We discuss how you can dig deeper and learn to dissolve their anxiety.
“We don’t have to be victims of our history we can be masters of our destiny by taking command of our perceptions. We can make a mountain out of a molehill or a molehill out of a mountain. We can transform our once assumed hell into an opportunity if we take the time to find out what’s behind it and how it serves us.”
