Typically fear is something that we think MIGHT happen rather than what is happening now, in the present. So, for all accounts, fear is a future thing, usually a projection into the future of what could happen. The majority of what we fear usually does not materialize. Its in the allowing the fear to control you that makes it stronger by interacting with it. The news media is great for instilling that fear in our minds and keeping it there. By constantly being exposed to the fear based channels, you are generating more of that fear by giving it more power. Visualize what you would like to happen. Keep your focus on a positive outcome.

What about the fear from the past or feelings of panic or anxiety that comes out of nowhere? If you have ever experienced PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) or severe or chronic stress, then possibly you may be re-living that traumatic event or events and not be aware of it.

Everyone at one time or another in their lifetime has had an event or situation that would be considered as traumatic. It can be a series of events, abuse, fear produced by a critical and unsupportive parent or anything that produces a feeling of helplessness. These experiences can be overwhelming and dealing with emotions can be difficult. Although the event has ended, the memories may last for months or years to come.

One way that these emotions may be released from the part of the brain that stores these memories is with energy-based therapies. Energy-based therapies use techniques that address all levels of the individual: mental, emotional, spiritual as well as physical and allow the person to heal on whatever level is needed.

What happens in our bodies and our brain when we perceive a threatening situation or we have been through a traumatic situation? Feelings of anger, rage, fear, avoidance and defensiveness are involved in the limbic brain or our emotional brain. There is a section of the limbic or emotional brain that inspires the freeze reaction, sweaty palms, and muscles to tense, protective postures or facial expressions. This area of the brain sends adrenaline and other hormones into the blood stream.

There are unconscious memory centers in our brains that store these traumatic events. When we experience sensations, images, smells, sights or anything that remind us of the trauma, our body reacts as if being a present threat. The traumatic experience still exists in our brain and contains the emotional and conscious memory traces of the event. Our brains are unable to release this message of threat that it is receiving and shows up as symptoms of fear and anxiety.

Using energy based techniques such as Healing Touch can help to release these stuck emotions and give the person a sense of peace and well-being. Practitioners act as facilitators in assisting the individual in their journey to self heal.
