    Instead of trying to control your breath see if you can JUST OBSERVE your breath. Don't try to change or fix your breath. Just observe, follow it, notice what it is doing, this is a more orangic way to work with the breath and in and of itself is a very relaxing exploration. If you just observe it, ride it like a wave or just follow where it goes, notice if you are breathing slow or fast, deep or shallow, nose or mouth, and just allow it do what it is doing you will see that it effortlessly calms and opens and changes on its own, and is more satisfying and pleasurable.

    Welcome that actual experience that you are having. IOWs notice what is actually happening in any given moment. If it is uncomfortable usually that means we want to get rid of it. So see if that's true and if yes, welcome that too. then see if you can let go of wanting to get rid of what is happening. And the go back to allowing what is happening to just happen. Often what we call anxiety are a collection of sensations. If you can bring awareness to the sensations and let go of resisting them, "wanting to get rid of them" they will eventually subside. Allowing the sensations to do what they are doing may very well lead to them becoming more intense. If you can remember to breathe and keep allowing them to do what they are doing, even allow them to get as intense as the might, you are giving them an opportunity to let go. They will release if you welcome them, give them as much room as they need inside and allow them to do what they are doing, At first this may seem the opposite of what needs to happen but if you play around with this you'll eventually discover that the sensations are just energy trying to come up and release. Welcoming them, allowing them to come up, giving them as much room as they need inside will lead to them releasing and dissolving. Practice doing this as best you can each time you feel anxiety and eventually it will release and you'll see that there is nothing to be afraid of, that it is just energy trying to come up and release.

    Best,

      I simply have a question why those bad sensation and unsubscribed emotions that called anxiety happens to me. I sit calm in the room, everything looks fine but why I feel so bad inside... And when trying to let go it feels like I all the time amazingly tense and if I try to let go I feel that I starting to have panic attack, sensations that everything is spinning around me and I'm. Going to blow Its pretty scared

          Hi Tvnbski!

          I am sorry for just getting back to you about the things you have written here. Sometimes discomfort escalates as we are releasing. The best thing to do is to keep at it, release on the wants, welcome any "no" answers because releasing can still happen even if you get a "no" for an answer. Eventually you will start to feel more at ease.

          Warmly,
          Delilah

              Hi Tvnbksi!

              I took time to allow the sensations to be here a little at a time and released on the wants. I kept welcoming wanting safety and control. I kept welcoming wanting to hold on to wanting safety and control. I learned early on that welcoming the wants and allowing myself to hold on any of the wants could promote some relief from discomfort. At first I did this for a 5 minutes at a time. Then I did it for 10 minutes at a time. I did this for months until I could allow the sensations to do what they were doing without resistance. I kept welcoming the resistance because I had a lot of resistance to the discomfort. Again, this lead to more ease and comfort. I kept welcoming want to change what the sensations were doing, to get rid of them etc.I spent time without distraction and practiced doing this, allowing, welcoming, welcoming resistance, letting go of resistance, and over time I felt better and better.

              Warmly,
              Delilah

                    You are the first person who has ever described what I experience so exactly. Like an energy pattern just repeating and repeating and repeating in my chest and stomach. As soon as I put any attention on it in a really mindful way it stops, like it doesn't want to get caught or something! It is incredibly distracting and I too have taken medication so that I can get on with my life. It is still there but at least I can focus on other things.... before I could not.

                      I bet there are thousands millions people around feeling the same as we do. Difference from mine is that I don't feel it anywhere exactly on my body, neither chest, neither stomach neither head, its like very very very bad mood. Short time strike, it comes up like a wave with a intense bad mood and I start to feel very much hopeless and depressed moment, but it releases away after of 10-15 seconds and keep returning again after minute and this sequence all time. This is most scary and uncontrolled part when u can't stop from coming it back because the moment you feel it its too depressed.

                        I'm trying to cope with anxiety without medication. I didn’t have panic attacks before, but after taking the pills from depression I started to have panic attacks. My doctor changed my treatment (I found on the site Canada Drugs the side effects of the pills that I took earlier and there were panic attacks on the list), this helped me and for a while this problem disappeared. Now, due to the fact that I have a lot of problems in my life, I understand that I'm beginning to feel anxiety more and more often. I tried meditation and it helps me a little. I don’t want the doctor to prescribe me any pills, because I think that this can make me worse (like last time), but I’m afraid that I won’t be able to cope with it on my own.

                          Hi Nanna!

                          We here at TSM don't claim to diagnose treat or cure any medical or psychological condition. We always encourage people to consult the appropriate professional. We can always release even if we do work with a medical or psychological professional. One of the things we recommend is that we release on any resistance to taking medication or not taking medication. We want to let go of all attachment. This means we want to let go of any attachment to not taking medication as well as any attachment to taking medication. This helps clear away all of our biases so that we can make decisions about medication from a place of wisdom and knowingness with the help of a professional. This is not say that we recommend that you take medication either. We can't make this kind of decision for you. Only you and the proper professional can make such a decision together. There are different medications that have different side affects and you should always consult a professional to have clarity about this.

                          Releasing can help you with anxiety. First notice what is actually here. What is actually happening that you are calling anxiety? And as best you can notice specifically what that is and allow whatever is here right now to be here. Notice any wanting to get rid of what's here. And allow yourself to want to get rid of it as much as you do. Take some time welcoming that. It's helpful to welcoming wanting to get rid of what here right now because that is resistance. Welcoming resistance is very helpful. And then as best you can let go of wanting to get rid of what's here right now. Keep exploring this along with exploring the wants and see how that works for you.

                          Please let us know how things unfold for you,
                          Delilah
