Dis-solving Anxiety Meditation

with Lida van den Berg

Meditation is a powerful tool and yet its simplicity is often under-estimated. Meditation is used to transcend pain, to heighten personal strengths, to influence goals, to generate calm and clarity of thought. The list goes on.

The most difficult aspects of meditation are commitment and expectation. The conundrum with meditation is that it is important to set the intention but just as important to release expectation.

The following meditation instructions will assist those who experience bouts of anxiety.

States of anxiety are powerful and respect for this emotional/mental state is required. If you begin this meditation and you give up in frustration – despair not. It could be that the situation causing anxiety is too fresh, in which case, time is required. You may benefit from seeing a therapist. You will know when to revisit this meditation.

It is imperative that you and your mind are in agreeance to commence this process. Only you will know if you are ready.

Read over the following instructions several times so that your mind is clear about the process.
