Anxiety Disorders and Panic Attacks: Visible Effects
In cases of people suffering from anxiety disorders, especially clients who are facing panic attacks, meditation techniques are very effective. I guess the other person knowingly feel the posture, the space-temporal orientation, the body in its entirety and the individual parts, the natural breath flowing in its cyclic stages of inspiration and exhalation.
Customers are usually amazed at the pleasure they are feeling, feeling for the first time, as children who are astonished about everything they experience and enjoy.
They tell me that they do not know what their body is, or rather they almost never remember about having a body, a precious tool, but much devalued with the mental instrument or idolized only in its more superficial out wardens.
This experience of conscious consciousness on the body has several purposes and effects …
- Start to perceive and explore the body in its propriocytic, tactile and thermal aspects;
- Pay more attention and value to the physical component of the human machine;
- Observe the difficulty of maintaining constant attention on the body;
- To perceive RESPIRT as a fundamental link between the body and an inner conscious consciousness;
- Observe intrusive thoughts and bring your mind back to the body every time, without chasing, judging or fighting against them;
- Observe physical, muscular tensions and slowly dissolve them;
- To bring emotional calm ultimately.
In anxiety disorders, the human machine is involved in an all-round and results in a more or less accentuated and pervasive disharmony.
The body’s appearance shows strong voltage signals usually at the respiratory level, and in fact, people report the inability to breathe deeply, full or to experience a horrible sensation of impossibility to breathe, total closure of claustrophobia.
Also, heart rate is often accelerated and muscle tension up to intense blocks occurs at the abdomen, shoulders, back, spine and legs.
To this physiological picture of activating the sympathetic autonomic nervous system (as if the person was preparing the body for an attack on an escape before a deadly danger) then add emotions of constant fear, anxiety, avoiding stressful situations.
How can these anxiety symptoms be addressed?
I repeat, therefore, that the path of guided meditation is indispensable in order to be able to resume contact with oneself, to reconnect to one’s own feelings, putting in constant body, mind and emotional connection.
The only way is to re-harmonize these parts by observing them more objectively, or as if we could look at them in a third person, without constantly identifying them and being aware of them, facing us in our dear human machine.
Undoubtedly observation is a complex process that requires constant work without expectation of results.
However, the observation will be dealt with in more detail in another article.
In recent years, science is examining the beneficial and healthy effects of meditation, thanks also to people like M. Tibor, a French Tibetan Buddhist who has been subjected to TAC and other examinations to enable the Occident to seize the importance and validity of this technique.
In fact, studies have emerged as in average people, the constant meditation of a few minutes a day induces greater relaxation, capacity for compassion and existential fulfillment.
If you want to relieve symptoms associated with panic attacks, we can start practicing these really effective and precious techniques.
As a psychologist and a 10-year Yoga practitioner, I accompany you progressively.
Few meetings are usually enough to reduce the frequency, intensity of panic attacks until they dissolve.
The cause must also be identified, the theme triggering the reaction to dominoes of panic attacks so that the rebalancing is more durable and not temporary.
