I had an experience recently where I was feeling some anxiety and stopped to inquire more.
I recognized that it began when I was recently given some business advice of how they thought I could do a few things and that’s when the anxiety began.
As a reformed people pleaser and someone who gave my power away to others I was quick to recognize what had happened.
I’d left myself wide open with no boundaries and hence, the anxiety began.
How did I turn my anxiety into peace?
#1 I recognized I didn’t have a boundary in place leaving me wide open to fall back into old habits.
#2 I created a boundary quick smart and felt all the emotions that surfaced when I had been triggered.
#3 My intuition delivered me a sweet affirmation from my higher self... “I have the power to choose” which I repeated over and over again.
#4 Feel gratitude for the person/situation that triggered me, because I wouldn’t have seen that hole in my boundaries without them. As I was repeating this affirmation I could see visually that I was moving further and further away from being IN the situation and could then choose whether or not I gave it my power.
I chose not to.
And then I returned back to peace and power.
NOTE: this whole process from when I was triggered took me 24 hours. It used to take me soooooooo much longer, until I learned to look anxiety in the eyes and see the truth through it.
I get how hard it can be in times of anxiety when you can feel powerless or out of control. You do have the power within you. You just need a little space to remember it and allow it t surface.
If you have any questions on taking your power back or any scenario is you’re finding it hard to do so with, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment below, as I’m creating a mini series in my podcast on the topic and would love to support you in this.
Big love and hugs,
