What helps against anxiety

Fear has always been a major issue for all of humanity. If you think about it more closely, you realize how much of our daily life is influenced, even controlled, by fear.

And I don’t just mean people who suffer from an “anxiety disorder” or are noticeably overanxious. No, I’m thinking of people like you and me, who generally don’t even realize how much space fear takes up in their lives.

Because we consciously or mostly unconsciously give this fear space. We don’t realize this because fear has always been part of our lives. But is every fear a meaningful part? Let’s try to shed some light on this question.

What is happening right now

What is happening in our society right now is a good example of what this article is about. It has been a long time since we have seen so clearly what fear does to people if they are not aware of it and do not see any ways of dealing with it.

The whole world seems to be in a panic, everyone is going crazy, people are behaving strangely and some of us are scared. Quite a few, in fact. Perhaps even almost all of them.

  • Fear of contracting a virus and becoming ill from it
  • Fear of having to spend the rest of their lives in social isolation
  • Fear of losing their livelihood, their company, their job
  • Fear of being forced into vaccinations and their (late) health consequences
  • Fear of war or of a climate catastrophe.
  • Afraid to stand up for themselves, they prefer to run along. In one direction or the other.
  • Fear of being wiped out for good or suppressed forever by the evil elite
  • Afraid of having to spend the rest of their lives clapping their hands to their foreheads from sheer madness …

But whatever it is, somehow it all boils down to fear. On all sides, in all countries, in all camps.

Certainly, some of the fears can be justified in real terms. The economic impact of socialist aspirations on the rise in Europe is not theoretical but very real, and so is the fear of it.

The fear of total control and oppression is not entirely unfounded and the fear of division, violence and ruin is quite understandable.

But many of the fears are not as real as we think. Because everything that revolves around a possible future is initially “only” a theoretical construct of our thinking.

Which, by the way, applies to most of our fears and worries. As a rule, it’s about things that we assume will happen and that will harm us.

They rob us of our life energy as a precaution. Just by the fact that we fear they could happen.

Two things

Two things happen as a result:

  1. If the fears actually come true, we have no energy left to counter the real threat, because we have already used up all our energy beforehand. Out of sheer fear of the downfall, so to speak, we went under long before the feared event.
  2. We manifest exactly what we are most afraid of. Because the universe always receives what has the most power behind it. And if this is the fear of doom, then it can only lead to doom.
Where does that come from?

It’s actually quite clear … actually: fear doesn’t just fall from the sky, it is based on a lack of basic trust in the natural course of events and in our ability to react appropriately when we need to react.

And this inevitably leads us back to our childhood, to our ancestral lineage, to past lives and generally to our way of fitting into the fabric of the universe. It leads us to split-off parts of the soul, to unlived dreams and visions. To limiting beliefs and behavioral patterns and and and.

It leads us to believe that we can’t change anything anyway.

The deer effect

Because all these patterns and entanglements are the reason why the theoretical constructs of our thinking consume so much vital energy long before an event actually occurs that we become almost incapable of acting.

We behave like the deer that is caught by car headlights on its way across the road and instead of running away, stops. And is run over.

This is not a theoretical model but a very real one. At the moment, this can be clearly seen in people who are standing frozen in shock in front of the possible shards of their existence, but still don’t act and wait like a deer in the headlights for the final impact. Or compensate for this impact by not wanting to acknowledge it. Talking up the world.

“I don’t need much to live” is a sentence I often hear. Or “there’s nothing we can do about it”, “it’s no better elsewhere” or “we’re actually doing well”.

Or entrepreneurs like to say “before I work on myself, the business has to be up and running again”. So the deer could say “before I run away, the car has to disappear first”. Well, it doesn’t, dear deer. YOU have to do something.


Accept the existence of your fears and start to find and work on the causes.

The aim will be for you to be able to think and, above all, act clearly again. That instead of feeding your fear and waiting for the crash, you are already working on solutions that you can then implement quickly. That you change your situation in good time so that you can cope with any changes in circumstances. That you won’t be blown away by what might come. If it doesn’t happen after all, nothing is lost.

It sounds complex, and sometimes it is, but it can always be solved. No matter how deep you are in the shit. YOU have the opportunity to get out of it if you want to. I’ll be happy to help you with the “how”, that’s my job. However, you can make the decision yourself, no one will do that for you.

And in the end? The fear and, above all, the current insane panic in politics and the media is not gone, but you have your life energy back to yourself. You can invest the power you previously invested in fear in yourself. You are capable of acting and are no longer the victim of seemingly higher powers.

And THEN YOU can make a difference!
