Working with the emotions of panic - Deepstash

Working with the emotions of panic

There are two important aspects to mindful inquiry in order to be able to work with panic, those are:

  1. Acknowledgment
  2. Letting be

Respectively, acknowledgment is being able to validate whatever we are currently feeling in our body and mind without the filters of avoidance, and being able to let things be will help us to ride the waves of panic and then dissipate after.

MORE IDEAS FROM THEARTICLE

The more we understand what’s driving our panic, the more we can be free of it. When our awareness and understanding grow brighter, the obscurity of panic and fear recedes.

Mindful inquiry meditation is a meditative process of deep exploration of your body and mind, with a willingness to be in the unknown and the curiosity to see what's actually there.

This type of practice takes some willingness and courage. All we have to fear is fear itself.

Create The Time To Relax

It is sometimes difficult to find some time to relax in our busy lives. However, it is important to set aside some quiet and uninterrupted time to be able to meditate, relax, and breathe.

  • Find a time where you can have some peace and quiet where you won't be interrupted;
  • Set your intentions to be held in a positive light. What do you want to happen during this time? How long will you be spending here? What are you trying to free yourself from?

How it’s done:  Inhale for a count of 4, then exhale for a count of 4, all through the nose, which adds a natural resistance to the breath. Once you manage it, you can go up to a count of 6.

It calm the nervous system, increase focus and reduce stress.

When it works best: Anytime, anyplace — but this is one technique that’s especially effective before bed.
