Anxiety Attacks

Anxiety attacks have several causes but often have at their root a fear of overwhelming feelings. This is the terror that the feelings will destroy us, that we will not be able to handle them if we allow them to surface. Paradoxically, the more we attempt to lock them down and out the more power they have and the more intense our panic becomes. We run from these feelings like we would a tiger pursuing us in the forest. When we tap on the fact that we are panicked and then move to the feelings that gave rise to the panic in the first place, they are cleared, emptied of their charge, their oversized sense of threat.
