The Anxious Truth: Heal from Anxiety, Panic, and Agoraphobia –with Drew Linsalata

The Anxious Truth: Heal from Anxiety, Panic, and Agoraphobia –with Drew Linsalata

May 22, 2021

While anxiety is a normal part of life that each of us will experience time and again over the course of a lifetime, Anxiety Disorder is different. It’s the fear of the anxiety itself, where the fear of anxiety fuels itself and spirals you into more anxiety, which leads to agoraphobia, which leads to depression. No matter what level of anxiety, everything you need to fix this problem is already inside of you.

Top Take-a-ways:

  • Why “self-care” and “giving yourself a break” actually conditions you to be more anxious.
  • How being Afraid and Safe is a helpful state to be in to learn to manage anxiety.
  • Why you are not broken, even if you have tried many different remedies to address anxiety – yet none of them have worked.
  • The importance of finding the right therapist and relying on yourself instead of anything that is outside of you, and your control.

Drew was once afraid, anxious, confused and lost. Crippled with panic attacks, trapped by agoraphobia, and riddled with constant anxiety, he almost lost everything important in his life as his world became smaller and smaller. Using behavioral science, courage, tenacity, consistency, and an unquenchable desire to overcome these problems once and for all he was able to recover completely.

He is the author of The Anxious Truth and An Anxiety Story and host of The Anxious Truth Podcast.

Simple Ways to Upgrade Consciousness & Answer Life’s Biggest Questions with Stephen Shaw

Simple Ways to Upgrade Consciousness & Answer Life’s Biggest Questions with Stephen Shaw

May 16, 2021

What are you seeking? Is it a sense of fulfillment or purpose? Perhaps it is experiencing unconditional love with another or being able to slip into the ecstasy of divine love. While we all want different things in life, there are commonalities as well. We all seek to understand that which is greater than us. We all want to love and be loved, and we all want to avoid being hurt.

Top Take-a-ways:

  • Overcome betrayal and learn from past experiences in a way that protects you going forward, cultivates understanding of both the blessings and the burdens, and honors your life journey.
  • Energize and upgrade your chakras, even if you aren’t fully aware of what chakras are, how they work, or why you’d want to upgrade them in the first place.
  • Invoke divine support in about a minute a day, so you will be supported and guided every step of the way.
  • How and why to clear the accumulation of negative energy that gathers in and around you in the daily course of living.

In his youth, Stephen Shaw, who grew up in South Africa, began having unusual experiences, including clairvoyance. By the time he was 15, he committed himself to fully explore Spirituality to find the answers to life’s most critical questions. Heavily influenced by the pragmatism of his father, he journeyed deep into all aspects of life, including military service, university, marriage and running a business. By the age of 39, he realized that his current life wasn’t enough. He still sought Answers.

He then gave up everything he knew, including his business and marriage, and spent the next decade learning from shamans in Africa, Peru and Mexico, lamas in Tibet and Bhutan, and more spiritual guides, until he found what he was seeking: Who We Really Are, the True Nature of Life, and how to Live in Deep Fulfilment, Love and Peace.

How to Live With Regrets

How to Live With Regrets

May 4, 2021

Have you ever tossed and turned all night,, thinking about all the dumb things you’ve done your entire life? Regretting things that you did or said – or did not do or say, when you should have spoken up.

Regret, like any negative emotion, is painful, scary, and feels like it can take us down permanently. But it is essential to feel your negative emotions fully, because it is only through the pain that we can heal and grow.

While this is a somewhat somber show that raises more questions than it answers, that is exactly the point. Grief, pain, and regret are not linear or simple. Feelings do not “happen” on cue or according to any particular timeline.

Top Take-a-ways:

  • Feeling regret, shame, grief, or any negative emotion reminds us of our imperfection, of our fragile, vulnerable nature, and is scary. It’s OK to be scared and to feel helpless. Humans, we are fragile and helpless… But we’re all in it together!
  • While regret, shame, or guilt teaches us what we might do better next time, beware of falling into the “I’ll do better next time” trap. Because you probably will! After all, how often have you gained and lost the same 5 pounds?
  • Living with regret enables us to roll with the punches more easily. Life is a series of ups and downs. All emotions are transitory. Feeling our pain fully helps us to manage difficult emotions in the future.
  • Being overwhelmed by grief or emotion helps us realize what we can control, which empowers us to take responsibility, take action, and be fully present for ourselves and those we love.
  • Ultimately, it’s regret, shame, grief, or any pain that makes us more fully humans. It’s “oneness” in action, and even though we don’t have answers or solutions, we can always sit in the discomfort, express ourselves, and offer ourselves, and those we love, grace.

  • The importance of Believing it is Possible, and keeping a happy, healthy mindset now and always. You can optimize your hormones at any age, you can let go of resentment, and you can shift your body image!

Dr. Susan Hardwick-Smith is an award-winning, Board Certified Obstetrics and Gynecology physician, author and life coach based in Houston, Texas.
