Anxiety Attack Symptoms

My name is Max Ikbal and I have successfully helped numerous individuals on how to get rid of anxiety and panic attacks using the techniques in Joe Barry's course Panic Away.

What ever your fear is, I want to share with you some tips and techniques that will not only help you break away from these fears but also reduce your overall anxiety.

You will find some interesting things here, that will come in handy on a day to day basis.

I have worked with many people who constantly worry about one problem or another. For example many fear for their health and even though their doctors have given them the all clear, they still feel helpless and unable to stop the repetitive fearful thoughts.

As long as you are bound by fear, worry, self-doubt, depression and so on, you are not truly thinking your own thoughts. As children, we don't come into the world with worries, phobias, anxiety attacks, depression and so on.

We either learn these ways of being - or are subjected to negative attacks from others. These negative attacks enter your mind and change your thoughts.

What can be done for people who suffer from fearful thoughts?

To begin, lets look at how a fearful thought is powered, and then how to discharge that fearful thought quickly.

Say for example you are going about your daily business when a scary thought enters your mind. Maybe you feel that you are about to have an anxiety attack. Maybe it's a fearful thought about your health?

You start to feel a knot in your stomach as you contemplate the thought, and you get sucked into a repetitive distress thinking. The strong emotion then powers the thought. When the thought comes again, your body 'remembers' the strong emotion, and the fearful thought has an even stronger connection in your mind.

So how can you eliminate these unwanted anxious thoughts?

When you begin to worry about an issue it is VERY important not to force the thoughts away -- let them in, they are harmless.

The more comfortable you can become with them, the better. These thoughts will never go away fully, but what can change is your reaction to them.

So let's take an example:

You are going about your day, enjoying it but, then all of sudden a fearful thought comes to mind.
Normally, you would have reacted with anxiety and tried to put that thought out of your mind - This time, however, you say to yourself:

"That's an interesting idea -I could worry about that, but this time I'm going to do something different- I'm not going to react to it, but I'm also not going to try and stop it, either. I'm just going to watch the thought."

Then the thought comes again, and once again you do exactly the same thing, As if you were observing a cloud passing overhead, you simply watch it as it passes by. No judgment. Just observe.

Just watch it, then go about your daily business. See it for what it is, one of the thousands of fleeting sane and insane thoughts every one of us experiences daily.

Everyone experiences passing thoughts that many would consider scary or crazy. The difference between most people and someone who gets over anxiety, is that the average person sees them for exactly what they are - just thoughts - and casually ignores them.

Now comes the real trick to turning this situation to your advantage!

When things are going well and you are not worrying about anything in particular, literally invite one of your regular fearful thoughts in. Call the fear to you - imagine you just want it to come close to observe it - and again sit back and examine it.

This may seem like the last thing you would wish to bring upon yourself, as you don't really enjoy the thoughts. But this technique is very powerful! YOU are now calling the shots this time - you actually invited the issue in. This immediately discharges the fear of the thing that is bothering you.

The fear comes when we pull against it like in a tug of war. It is the mental struggle that creates the tension. It is the conflict in your mind saying;

"I don't want to think about this"

"I don't like that thought- I want it to go away"

Invite them in willingly and you suddenly place yourself in a position of control that you may have never felt you had before. You are no longer a victim of fearful thinking but a decision maker in what you will or will not be concerned about.

Use this technique for any thought which you find disturbing. It will invalidate it immediately and leave you feeling in control.

As with every technique there is always a level of practice involved in the beginning. Initially you may fall into the trap of getting anxious about the fearful thought itself. But keep at it. Practice inviting the fear and you will quickly see how weak those fearful thoughts become.

The internal battle is over, as you no longer struggle to resist the anxious thought. Always remember that there is a lot of hope for an immediate and successful recovery from all forms of panic attacks and anxiety disorders. You can have the life of your dreams. Anxiety does not have the right to steal that hope from you.

I 'm going to post more tips and techniques to help reduce social anxiety which is the breeding ground for fearful thoughts and panic attacks. People I have worked with find these tips very powerful in reducing their anxiety level.

Some of this information forms a very small part of the Panic Away course which has eliminated anxiety and panic attacks for thousands of people. This course has proved highly successful with both long and short term sufferers of panic attacks.

If you suffer from panic attacks we can get you absolutely cured like the thousands of others we have taught. That is not an empty proposal but an invitation to join me, in helping you end the vicious cycle of anxiety and panic attacks today.
