Worried about office politics when you’re not at the office? Anxious during the weekend about your work week ahead? We all have anxious thoughts from time to time. Maybe even all the time! But you know what, it’s natural. And most importantly, it’s ok.
Sometimes anxious thoughts pass after a few deep breaths. Unfortunately, sometimes it lingers.
If you notice that the anxiety you feel is taking over your day, then it’s time to energetically release it. Doing so will not only have a positive impact on your emotional health, but also your mental and physical health.
Years ago at one of my 9-5 jobs, my boss and I were not seeing eye to eye on various work-related issues. After a tense argument that got personal, I knew it was time to leave. I have been wanting to leave that career for a long time.
So the next day, I walked in and said I’d like to resign.
Despite having over 20 years on my mortgage, I was so sure this was the right step based on all the work I’ve done prior to resigning. Although I didn’t have a solid Plan B, I knew I would be ok.
I had established a solid foundation by teaching yoga on evenings and weekends. I was also growing my blog and establishing a solid professional network in the personal finance space.
After making my announcement, the senior managers in the office offered alternative options. They encouraged me to take as much paid time off as I needed to reconsider. They also gave me the option to work in a different office.
I knew I would never ever (Taylor Swift’s song should be playing the in the background) EVER step foot in that old office. So I conveyed this in the most professional manner possible and in a very definitive manner.
After taking a few weeks to reflect, job search, work on my blog business, I recognized that I needed funding to grow my business.
The anxiety mounted by the day.
I wasn’t quite at the stage in my business where I could pay the bills and live comfortably. Here’s how I was able to tap into my intuition and manifest my career breakthrough despite my anxiety.
R.A.I.N. on your thoughts.
R.A.I.N. stands for recognize, accept, intention, and neutralize. Recognize that feeling worried is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion.
As humans, we are wired to operate on survival mode. Whenever we feel threatened or fearful, anxious surface...fast. Basically, the sympathetic nervous system is activated which is often referred to as the fight or flight response.
Accept your feelings and thoughts by letting go of any self-judgement. Sometimes we feel even more anxious because we think we shouldn’t feel anxious in the first place. So let go of any self-judgement and allow yourself to feel.
Take three slow breaths to ease your way out of the fight or flight mode. Next, set the intention to release the anxious thoughts. You may then wish to set the intention to detach from any particular outcome. Here’s how to apply the law of detachment.
The “I” in R.A.I.N. also stands for introspection.
Get to the bottom of why you are feeling nervous and concerned by doing some self-reflection. Anxiety can be caused by both external and internal events.
You could be worried about a specific person, or situation. Or your concerns could be triggered by an external event. Memories of traumatic event can also trigger anxious feelings.
Once you understand the basis of your feelings, it’s time to neutralize it. Get to the bottom of why you are holding on to concerns. Understanding this will ultimately create space and ease for releasing the anxiety.
The key is to simply be aware of the anxious energy.
If you recognize the lower vibrations that you carry from holding on to anxious thoughts, take a moment to consider what is keeping you from energetically detaching from your concerns.
As busy women in today’s world, you can’t go very far if you’re in anxious energy. The energetic flow is not conducive to what you want to attract and create in life. It’s difficult to be open enough for who and what you desire to come through.
So take a moment to recognize what actions needed to be taken in order to give you a sense of relief and create space for what you desire. Will the actions steps distract you? Or will the next steps lead you closer to your goals?
Ultimately, it comes down to being in the vibration of what you desire. After all, when we vibrate at the same frequency of the best version of ourselves, we are able to manifest faster breakthroughs.
Keeping the faith is essential in order to prevent cluttering your energy. If you continuously bounce from self-doubt to self-confidence throughout the day, the ‘yo-yo’-ing will impact your vibrations.
Sure, it’s not easy to have high-vibe thoughts 100% of the day.
But so long as you are able to make an effort to do so 51% of the time, you’ll see progress! So be sure to have trust that what you need will come forth.
Sometimes this may mean taking a break from people who are draining you. This could include taking a mental health day from work or simply journaling out your thoughts.
Start with something small such as making the choice to treat yourself to a long hot shower. Maybe it’s letting yourself pig out on ice cream in front of the T.V. without judging yourself the rest of the evening.
Whatever you do, but sure the actions you take stem from choices that bring about joy. Raising your vibrational frequency will help to create space for positive energy flow.
