Anxiety can take on many different forms.
It could be a lump in your throat when you try to speak in public…
Perhaps it’s an obsessive compulsion for things to be “just right”.
Or maybe your anxiety shows up as a restless mind, constantly overthinking about how things could go wrong.
In the world of manifestation, we know that thoughts become things so how can The Law of Attraction and anxiety co-exist?
Can you manifest success if you suffer from anxiety?
How can someone beat their anxious mind using The Law of Attraction?
How Does Anxiety Affect The Law of Attraction?
The Law of Attraction is all about mindset control, something that an anxious person might really struggle with.
It’s not so much that they are negative or that they have a negative mindset but more that they lack control over their own thoughts.
“Everything you want is on the other side of fear.” – Jack Canfield
Have you ever had a thought spiral out of control?
It starts as a “harmless” doubt but is soon crowded by swarms of negative thought chatter.
Your heart races and you are suddenly faced with a tight pull across your chest.
This is anxiety.
The trouble is, that in The Law of Attraction like attracts like…
So anxious feelings attract the scenarios that breed even more panic and fear.
But Before You Get All Doom And Gloom….
It is important to note the silver lining around anxiety and the Law of Attraction.
You see, those who suffer from anxiety and overthinking actually possess an incredible gift.
They are more sensitive to the world than others.
Their intellectual, emotional and spiritual capacities are highly developed and therefore they lack the ability to be ignorant to the truth.
They see the world on a deeper level and that can be painfully frightening.
“People who are spiritually minded tend to suffer from anxiety and depression more. You know why? Because their eyes are open to a world that is in need of repair. They literally have an increased ability to feel the emotions of people around them.” – Osho
Now, you may be thinking, spiritual awareness?
That’s great but how can I possibly use the Law of Attraction to manifest success when I suffer from anxiety?
Let’s put it this way, when you can channel those higher vibrations in the right directions, there lies the superpower behind anxiety and overthinking.
Overthinking = Enhanced Ability To Imagine.
Those who suffer from anxiety tend to be daydreamers.
Their anxious thoughts appear in the form of vivid scenarios created by an overactive imagination.
Over-Emotional = Enhanced Ability To Feel.
People who suffer from anxiety are often empathic and can channel emotion much easier than others.
Yes, this can be a very painful and frightening experience but used in the right way, they can tap into the emotions needed for manifestation very easily especially when they visualize a positive outcome.
Fear is simply misdirected excitement.
When channeled as such this emotion becomes a magical gateway toward the many blessings that appear when manifesting your desires.
Nervousness = Surplus Energy.
Often those who suffer from symptoms of nervousness such as shaking, stuttering, mixing up words etc do so because they have too much energy trapped inside their bodies.
This hidden storage of energy enables anxiety sufferers to access high levels of action.
People who suffer from anxiety usually have more than enough get-up-and-go to achieve their goals, they are just way too hard on themselves to see it.
When someone with anxiety can eliminate this self doubt, they will find themselves on a whole new path of alignment.
Inspired action leads toward fast manifestation as well as personal development.
So What Does All Of This Tell Us?
Well for a start, it is more than possible to manifest greatness even if you suffer from anxiety.
In fact, your gift of sensitivity can actually be used as an advantage!!!
Now, you are probably thinking “easier said than done.” and you are right!
Raising your vibration to catch up to your high levels of energetic sensitivity is no easy feat.
That being said, let’s now look at some practical solutions for you to take back control!
“You either control your mind or it controls you.” – Napoleon Hill
1.) Drop The Labels.
If you say something enough, your subconscious mind will start to believe it.
As an experiment, try creating a made up scenario.
Repeat that scenario in your head as often as you can as if it really happened.
Over time you will begin to see the made-up scenario as if it were a memory.
In fact, compare the made-up scenario to one of your real memories and take note of the similarities between the way they both appear in your mind.
Not much difference right?
You see, whenever you repeat an affirmation or visualized scene within your mind, your subconscious begins to see it as fact.
Therefore when you put labels on yourself such as:
- “I have anxiety.”
- “I have panic attacks.”
- “I am not good in social settings.”
You unknowingly make your condition worse.
You essentially give yourself the OK to be anxious because you accept that this is just how you behave.
Challenge yourself to replace some of these negative statements with some counteractive affirmations. For example:
- “I am confident.”
- “My body feels relaxed.”
- “I am a great socializer.”
This may not feel like it’s doing anything amazing for you right away but trust the process.
Over time, your subconscious mind will begin to adopt these positive statements as truth, giving you more control over your thoughts and feelings.
2.) Practice Meditation.
There are multiple reasons why meditation is such a beneficial practice for those who feel their ability to use The Law of Attraction is being hindered by their anxiety.
Here are a few:
- Allows you to release your mind from overthinking.
- Centers on mindset control.
- Promotes relaxation and inner peace.
- Creates a tranquil space for visualization.
- Allows grounding for those who are overstimulated by thoughts and emotion.
- Generates feelings of self-acceptance.
- Helps to develop breathing techniques that can be used for stress and anxiety.
The great thing about meditation is that is can be used both for manifestation as well as to calm anxious feelings.
It doesn’t matter if it is morning or night, 15 minutes a day is all you need to get yourself grounded and start manifesting your dream life.
If you struggle to quieten your mind for meditation, try Binaural beats. Binaural beats are sound wave frequencies that induce different states of consciousness. For more information on Binaural beats specifically for manifestation, click here and read the 15 Minute Manifestation Review.
3.) Schedule Time For Visualization
This tip is all about not letting your anxiety put you off overthinking.
Remember, overthinking is a gift that just needs to be channeled in the right direction.
Whenever you notice yourself sinking into old patterns of destructive overthinking, take that as a cue from your higher self that you need to create!!
Turn your negative overthinking into a positive visualization session.
How do you do this?
First pick a scenario that you wish to manifest, for example:
Once you know what you are going to focus on, run yourself a deep bath and indulge as you close your eyes and imagine a scene where you have everything that your heart desires.
Transmute negative overthinking into high vibe visualization and you will soon be well on your way to living your best life!
“The greatest gift you have been given is the gift of your imagination. Everything that now exists was once imagined. And everything that will exist must first be imagined.” – Wayne Dyer
4.) Release Nervous Energy
For anyone who suffers from anxiety, you need to be active!!
Take at least 30 minutes a day to focus on releasing your nervous energy through movement!
Run, walk, jump, skip…
Whatever it is that you do to keep fit and healthy, do it! No excuses!
Releasing your nervous energy will help you to stay calmer in stressful situations and will also heighten your vibration as a whole making you more in touch with yourself and therefore the wider universe.
“Being brave isn’t the absence of fear. Being brave is having that fear but finding a way through it.” – Bear Grylls
5.) Cut Down On Stimulants
If you are someone who already has high levels of intellectual, emotional and spiritual energy, the last thing you want to do is overstimulate yourself.
Stimulants are things that give us a temporary lift and can come in the form of tobacco, caffeine, alcohol, sugar or even time spent in front of a screen.
For someone who suffers from anxiety, these stimulants can result in extreme feelings of anxiousness and panic.
The best thing you can do is try to keep a balanced diet and stay away from additives and preservatives.
Another big stimulant particularly harmful to anxious people is social media.
Be careful that you are not getting caught in the social media web comparing yourself to others in a negative light instead of celebrating your unique gifts.
This can be really detrimental to your manifestations as it can invoke negative self-talk.
Ensure to fill your feed with people who inspire you not people who make you feel inadequate.
6.) Get Some Sleep
For a highly anxious person sleep is of utmost importance.
A good nights sleep will not only help you to stay calmer during the day but it will also help your manifestations by spending time in an unconscious state where your positive affirmations are processed.
When you are not getting enough sleep you may find it harder to maintain control over your mindset.
You may notice negative thoughts seem to slip into your mind creating more pain as opposed to healing.
Give yourself an early bedtime even if it means you need to spend some time meditating in order to wind down. Sleep creates room for positivity and growth.
Bonus Tip – Try listening to subliminal affirmations while you sleep. This will pump your subconscious mind with the increased positivity you need, leading you to calmer and more relaxed days to come…
“Sleep is the best meditation.” – Deli Lama
7.) Push Yourself Out Of Your Comfort Zone
The universe favors those who take action toward their desires.
When using the Law of Attraction, take advantage of your sensitive energy levels and charge some of that good vibration into taking real steps toward your goals.
If you are manifesting a new job you might like to shop for the perfect interview outfit.
If you are manifesting amazing friends you might like to join clubs or attend events in your area.
Aim to do the things that scare you and find the thrill within the fear.
The number one thing that holds people back in life is fear of taking risks. Don’t live your entire life just to look back with regrets.
Take a step forward and keep pushing on.
