“… many of the things we’re worried about aren’t actually happening (yet) and maybe never will. The thing is, our brains can’t tell the difference between fiction and non-fiction. When we get worried about a possibility and experience fear or upset, our brain & body reacts AS IF it’s actually happened.” Robin Quinn Keehn
In a world suddenly turned upside down, in ways only science fiction and horror writers could have imagined, I am touched by so many people lovingly offering what help they can give.
Neighbors I have never met are reaching out on the Nextdoor app to offer help ranging from doing errands for those who must self-quarantine to sharing extra rolls of toilet paper.
In that spirit, I too have an offering—actually two offerings—that address the same problem.
We have all lost our sense of security and predictability! No one knows what will happen next, but the warnings are dire, and we respond by creating images of the worst possible outcomes for ourselves and those we love. And those images are intrusive and hard to erase.
Depending on your own preferences, one (or both) of these offerings will help you release these images and find more energy to manage this situation.
- Dr. Willem Lammers and members of the international Logosynthesis community have released a deeply meditative video, Coping with Corona – Reduce Stress and Fear in 30 minutes! https://tinyurl.com/rsqxb3v
- If you prefer something more logical, I am offering a process you can learn and use repeatedly to dissolve those intrusive images. 7 Steps to Reduce Worry Starting NOW,www.laurieweiss.com/reduceworry You can do this process in less than 10 minutes a day, with a daily email reminder. If you prefer a faster pace, you can also complete it all at once, in about an hour.
Please share these anywhere you wish.
Stay safe and healthy!
P.S. Before the world changed so suddenly, I was in the process of releasing my new Logosynthesis® book, Embrace Prosperity: Resolve Blocks to Experiencing Abundance. (Co-authored with Dr. Willem Lammers) Right now, that seems less relevant than the first book in the series, Letting It Go: Relieve Anxiety and Toxic Stress in Just a Few Minutes Using Only Words (Rapid Relief with Logosynthesis®) Both are at http://www.BooksbyLaurie.com
