Anxiety is a lack of inner calm brought on by fear. My guides say that anxiety is a message that we need to pay attention to. It is our teacher asking us to address issues. It could be calling for an attitude change, the need to take action, or perhaps both.
Unfortunately, we have an epidemic of staggering proportion of avoidance to listening to what our anxieties are attempting to teach. Whether the repressing tool is prescription medication, alcohol, overeating, or street drugs. When the messages that anxiety communicates are avoided or repressed, larger problems develop.
Don’t be afraid of anxiety, but rather see it as your very important teacher. Get close to it and project into it, in order to understand what triggers the anxiety and what is needed as an antidote that brings true resolution.
