So yes setbacks are a good thing, what most people do when they have a period of feeling good is think they have cracked it, that it is all behind them, I have seen this so often.
Then when the energy comes back up to be released they try to shut the process off again, they berate themselves for feeling this way, they search back to try and find what made them feel so good the week before, run to something to try to make themselves feel good again, which is the total opposite of what you should do, you must continue to be open to anything.
This is a full allowing of the energy within you to manifest itself in anyway it wishes and then the energy has run out without you trying to interfere, then it will come to rest when it has burned itself out, trying to stop the release is what creates more turmoil.
I asked people on my Facebook page to ask some questions the other day and I would pick the best 3 out, here is the 3 I picked and my answers.
Sorry for the spacing issues, it is created my copying and pasting. I feel like i had a good hold of my anxiety and i can see the things i worry over are irrational most of the time however i feel that the physical symptoms of my anxiety take over and i become locked into the fear and panic.
When you pull your energy, focus and belief from a thought, then it no longer creates the emotion.
Belief in thought is what creates an emotion, not the thought itself.
Just knowing what it was, really helped me through this process and I knew no harm would come from me allowing myself to go through this process.
Your body though can not get rid of all this energy in one go, so it goes through cycles, this is what a setback is.In the space of a few months the purges came less strongly and less frequently, I could have a few weeks feeling great and then when I felt rotten, it was pretty easy to deal with as the intensity was way lower than before as so much had been released.Then the point came when I felt real freedom, the anxiety was all but gone, the racing/fearful thoughts all but stopped.Each one of us is different and so I don’t want anyone thinking that how long it took me will be the same for everyone.It all depends on how long you have suffered, how open you are to feeling your anxiety etc.Nowhere, it just stays where it is ready for another go at releasing itself and with all the fighting and extra worry, more maybe added to the stores.
