When I watched Jurassic Park for the first time my body felt like a tight rubber band. I knew that I was completely safe in my theater seat, but even if I closed my eyes my body kept reacting to the signals the music was sending.
Now, I sometimes discover that my body is feeling a similar way for no apparent reason. Does yours?
I usually skim the headlines of an online newspaper every morning. I stopped to notice what I was reading. Many of the headlines told of major and minor disasters. Many of the others warned of disasters to come. TV headlines are even worse! My body is reacting again, this time to less obvious signals from my environment.
I keep being informed that there’s danger. There is, but most of it isn’t related to me, and there’s nothing I can do about it. Nevertheless, my energy is frozen because I’m faced with a threat that I can’t manage and I’m trying to protect myself.
When I notice my sign of frozen energy, my tense body, the tool I use to release that frozen energy and relax again is what I teach in this book.
Read the book! Write down the three sentences, so you will always have a tool to use when you are stressed and feeling anxious because you’re being told to be afraid!
This post is a comment I wrote about a passage on Page 44 of Letting It Go: Relieve Anxiety and Toxic Stress in Just a Few Minutes Using Only Words (Rapid Relief with Logosynthesis®). You can see the passage in the book. You can also see the excerpt here. This link will take you to Bublish.com, where I regularly publish comments on parts of this book.
