Learn what many public speakers, great lawyers, high-profile athletes do when they experience anxiety. They quickly and easily switch anxiety to the feeling of excitement! They perform better! The process is called “Anxiety Reappraisal.” And multiple studies show that it works! Emotional reappraisal: “A form of cognitive change that involves…
Do you remember your first kiss? Hmmm……. A closed-ended question may not suffice. I am not looking for a “yes” or “no” here. Let’s try this: Remember your first kiss. Access that memory now! Immerse yourself in that feeling.
Nope – Kinda bossy.
Okay, let’s try this: What did your first kiss feel like? Or perhaps better stated, what did your first “real” kiss feel like?
Take your time . . . you can wallow in it like a pig in the mud if you like. (Perhaps not the best visual.)
*Ahem* – You can bathe in this pleasurable feeling for as long as it lasts. Soak it up. 😉 Basically, I want you to relive it.
Okay, how did it feel the last time you rocked somebody’s world in bed?
Or, in a cab, or wherever . . . You understand.
After reliving those moments, how do you feel now?
If you truly relived it, you would feel great. How would the version of you, that feels great, perceive handling whatever “obstacles” you are presently dealing with. Should we go one step further? Okay, what did one of your greatest orgasms feel like? (Talk about real alignment!) How satisfied did you feel? How empowered did you feel? Please relive that feeling now.
My goodness, now how do you feel? How do you feel about life?
Sustain that feeling as best you can. Let the vibration linger as I ask you to do this: Remember what it felt like this first time you felt like you won at life. A time when you felt like you did something great. Take your time. It has happened. A moment when you fully appreciated that you just kicked ass; you really nailed it! You were on top of the world! Blend this feeling with one of the ones you conjured previously.
Now how do you feel?
How does a person in this state of mind and emotion meet life’s challenges? How has this shift improved your outlook? Your confidence?
Run through these exercises again, if you wish. Or, let it marinate.
How do you feel about addressing areas of your life you would like to improve on while in this empowered state? Before the feeling subsides, grab a piece of paper and writing down three things you are going to improve on.
You will use phrasing such as “I am changing” or “I am improving” etc. Some will go as far as to say simply “I am” that which they want to be. For example, “I am 185 pounds” can be used when they really weigh 25 pounds more. I will leave that part up to you. Use “I am _____, ” if it feels right for you. Otherwise, use something like “I am going to.”
Next, put together an action plan for these three changes. Don’t force it. Let what comes easily to be penned. You can always expand on it later. You want to keep the feeling of flow alive.
Finally, spend some time, as though you are looking back from the future, and remembering what it felt like to accomplish these three changes. Draw from the feelings you recently relived during the previous exercises.
Think of it this way. It is a done deal. In the energetic field, the path and payoff exist now; go get. Draw it into your reality. You have not only shifted but you have created from a strong vibrational set-point.
