The 2 ingredients of anxiety

Today I’m sharing an insight from my morning walk that I hope will bring a new level of peace to your heart.

If you saw my newsletter last week, you’ll know that I’m focusing (briefly) on relieving anxiety for the lovely creatives in my world. 

And as so often ‘just happens’ when we focus on an idea, my new focus began to take on a life of its own, priming my senses to notice more along the same lines. 

(This is, I feel, the ultimate method for our happiest creative journeys and inevitable success.)

Since my radar was set to understanding, reducing and eliminating anxiety, I was stopped in my tracks on this morning’s walk as I listened to my latest audiobook, Diana Cooper’s, The Golden Future. 

In explaining the factors that prevent us from living our own golden lives in the present, Diana shared that; 

Anxiety = belief + imagination

Specifically; imagining worst-case scenarios, and believing they are likely or inevitable. 

It reminded me that, as powerful creative beings, we can so often use our brilliant minds and imaginations against us, directing those potent forces towards precisely what we don’t want. 

The ideal solution is to shift these patterns, and to direct our attention to what we do want. 

Sounds simple. 

And yet, in reality, this ‘simple shift’ can be extremely difficult to do.

It’s even more challenging to do repeatedly, which is what’s required if we’ve trained our minds along mental grooves in the opposite direction. 

If you’ve ever experienced habitual anxiety, you’ll know what I mean. 

Happily, there is good news…

Einstein’s most important question

Have you ever heard this quote, which is largely attributed to Albert Einstein?

“I think the most important question facing humanity is,

‘Is the universe a friendly place?’

This is the first and most basic question all people must answer for themselves.”

Whether this really is the most important question we can ask ourselves (and whether it really was Einstein who said it), one thing I’ve learned is that our answer to this question significantly influences the way we live, and the results we get. 

It can also play a key role in our levels of anxiety. 

And this is where we can turn all of this to our advantage. 

Because when we start to hone our beliefs and imagination along the lines of a friendly universe – regardless of whether it ‘really’ is friendly! – we live differently. 

With more joy. 

With less anxiety. 

With more positive outcomes and delightful results. 

This mindset, aka belief and imagination, is a creative force – it makes things happen. 

Good things! 

Shaping these optimistic beliefs, and imagining favourable outcomes, can lead to more of the results we do want to see. 

All with less anxiety, fear and doubt. 

Keeping the faith 

If you’re on board with this idea, you may be wondering; How do we do this?

After following this thread for a number of years, I learned that there are a few simple ways we can kick-start the process.
