  • How to Avoid Panic in the Financial Crisis (and Avoid Making Your Situation Worse)

    We are in the midst of what some experts are calling the biggest financial crisis in the United States since the Great Depression. The far-reaching effects of the slumping economy and crashing stock market are no doubt impacting you in their own way. Perhaps you worry about being laid off, are having trouble paying your mortgage or are panicked at the thought of what could happen to your investments.

    In fact, in an environment like today´s you may very well find yourself constantly in fear over your financial security, with your thoughts racing full speed ahead, wondering what you´ll do if things keep getting worse.

    And you´re not alone. A 2008 Gallup poll found that a higher percentage of Americans are worried about maintaining their standard of living than were worried during the 1991-1992 recession.

    Among the top reasons for financial concerns cited in the poll were:
    • Rise in gasoline and home heating prices
    • Rise in food prices and health care costs
    • The recent decline in the stock market
    • More people losing their jobs
    • The rise in cost of a college education
    • The outsourcing of jobs overseas
    • Problems in the housing market

    Of course, none of these worries bode well for your ability to find inner peace and happiness, but what you may not realize is that the more you allow fear and panic to cloud your world, the more reasons you will find to be unhappy. The only remedy, even when your financial situation seems daunting, is to release your negative thoughts and get your head into a positive place.

    You see, it´s only when you're living from a place of positive calm that you´ll be able to follow your intuition and make the right financial decisions for you and your family.

    “Anxiety, panic and worry do nothing to support you in making the right decisions,” says Hale Dwoskin, CEO and director of training of Sedona Training Associates. “The more you can make decisions from a place of inner calmness and mental clarity the more likely your decisions will be supportive of your overall financial goals and well-being.”

    Your Attitude is Everything

    Right now there are people who are still financially stable, happy and living their lives to the fullest. How can this be, even despite the financial crisis? Because of their attitude. Your emotions create your thoughts, and your thoughts either put you into action or prevent you from acting. Your emotions determine your own blueprint for prosperity. And if you want your blueprint to be a successful one, you need to first develop the right attitude.

    “The very best thing to do when you find yourself panicking is to allow yourself to welcome whatever you're feeling about the current world situation and about your current financial situation. Also allow yourself to welcome wanting to change or control how you feel,” Dwoskin said.

    While welcoming the feelings may seem counterintuitive, it´s a necessary step in the process of letting go. As you'll learn when you delve deeper into letting go with The Sedona Method, the more you resist a feeling, the stronger its hold on you becomes. When you welcome a feeling, however, the resistance fades away while your ability to let the feeling go gets stronger.

    “After welcoming the feeling, ask yourself in this moment if you could simply let go,” Dwoskin says. “By allowing yourself to welcome what you feel and then letting it go, you will immediately feel relief. This will also bring you more access to your intuitive knowingness and the clarity of thought required for you to weather the storm.”

    “The next step is to also welcome any feelings of wanting to understand or figure out what to do,” Dwoskin says. “The more you want to figure out what you should or shouldn't be doing the more confused you will be. As you let go of wanting to figure it out you will naturally and easily know exactly what to do.”

    Again, the key to unlocking your ability to make the right financial decisions lies in first welcoming your fears and then letting them go. By doing this you take a step back, reconnect with your inner knowingness and then will move forward with a sound mind. At the same time, letting go helps you remember that, ultimately, you are much more than your finances, and you can exist and be happy no matter what is going on with the economy or stock market.

    “Remember that no matter how your financial situation feels you are not your bank book or your possessions,” Dwoskin says. “The less you identify with any of the problems that you´re experiencing the more likely you are to find the right solution.”

    To get you started on the right path, please do take advantage of this Free Sedona Method Financial Stress Release, and pass it along to your friends and family who also want to dissolve their financial stress for good.

    Hale says to let go of trying to figure out what to do. Yet I just watched one of his videos and he said that we <> take action. Aren't these contradictory statements? How can we take
    action if we don't know what action to take?

      When you let go of wanting to figure it out then you are opening yourself to your clear reason and intuitive knowingness. In other words, it is perfect to be clear about your next steps but when you are wanting to get clear or firgure it out your are blocking.
      Love,
