Mind-Body Connection And Fear and Anxiety
We all have fears and anxieties, real and imagined. They seem to be part of our human journey and perhaps are present to help us grow as souls. There was a time when I believed that knowledge alone could quell the fires of fear and quiet the anxieties that agitate the mind, breed turbulent emotions and disturb sleep. I found that not to be the case!
Information can be a great first step, but by itself knowledge and the everyday mind are not equipped to quiet fear and anxiety that shake our foundations on our journey through life. We must engage the body and that is effectively done through the energy system.
Mind-Body Connection: Doorway to Emotional Freedom
The discovery that it is necessary to have methods to transform knowledge into inner knowing through the mind-body connection (a felt experience that amends our default patterns) was a doorway to freedom for me. The most effective approaches I found were those that included personal energy work coupled with the map of consciousness that the chakra system provides.
Once I began to work with my energy system to connect mind and body, I found life and living to become much more manageable… and even better—enjoyable and happy! In my opinion, understanding and knowing how to address our personal energy system offers both a means to remove what agitates and troubles us, as well as the means to build in new self sustaining, nourishing and life enhancing energies.
Mind-Body Connection and the Root Chakra
Any journey toward healing or re-balancing necessarily begins with the root chakra as it is the foundation of our physical and psychological being. It is also the primary mover and shaker concerning fear and anxiety! Strong root chakra energies allow you to face life without being overtaken by unnecessary anxiety and to respond from a grounded strength to difficult, stress filled situations. Strong root chakra energy also enables a flow of energy to the rest of the chakras to allow them their maximum function.
