From Anxiety to Trust
When life presents its many challenges, such as can happen in close relationships where our emotions play an important role, it’s not easy to chase away thoughts of misinterpretations and mounting anxieties, which can overwhelm our positive choices.
However, I have learned that there is always a moment to recognize, then realign myself with the great Spirit, which helps me choose the reality that is trusting, positive and more objective, instead of the negative one which wants to dominate.
The negatives are forces we don’t understand but arise because of some previous experiences, perhaps even from another lifetime.
Reflection and Prayer
Achieved through reflection and prayer, the alignment to the power of God or the Essence of Being becomes real. This alignment to great Love is our job, which starts as healing any physical pain by tracing backwards from the pain through the acupuncture/neural pathways to the limbic system in the deep brain.
Here, our past traumas are stored in hypothalamus/pituitary, the command centre of the body. From there the thought attention naturally shifts to the master gland Pineal, recognized as the Seat of the Soul or the Door to Perception by well-known writers such as Aldous Huxley.
The Pineal gland is our connection point to the power grid of the Source.
Five Elements of Psychology
We can work on emotional issues in order to overcome worry, anxiety or depression the same way as dealing with physical pain. Looking at the Five Elements chart you see that worry and over thinking are emotions associated with the Earth element, therefore Spleen/Pancreas/Stomach. The nourishing energy should flow from Heart/Small Intestine and controlling energy across the cycle from Liver/GB, the Wood.
Also, anxiety is associated with the Fire element, the Heart/SI, which can become too hot and anxious. The heart, when anxious and self-centred cannot nourish the Spleen/Stomach, the Earth element, which is associated with too much thinking and worry.
Then, see the Wood element Liver/GallBladder, living with annoyance, intolerance and anger. If so, how can it nourish the Heart’s hastiness or raging fire, or control the Earth with its concerns and worries?
No harmony can reign in this situation, where a transformation is necessary in each section to attain peacefulness.
Liver anger must change into kindness, the heart’s hot anxiety to deep compassion and caring, spleen’s worry to peaceful thinking of the Origin (using the Name meaningful to you), which can make you happily hum, whistle or sing.
Being alert to thoughts is necessary for any kind of work in order to achieve what we want.
We are so clever in our thinking since as humans we have had the intellect as our master for eons. This has got us into great trouble.
Now we have to learn to reign our thoughts by using Light guidance of the all-powerful Spirit. For some of us this takes a bit of practice in meditation or prayer – not the begging kind but thankfully praising great Love.
There is a spark for shifting/changing every thought. Without that spark, there would no thinking. That spark is the switch for putting on the light of Guidance. Become alert and use that switch with your other strategies.
Use the Acu Stones
Please click to learn about our programs and the no-needle acupuncture kit. Take time to put the stones on the appropriate points. Press each stone against the skin for ten seconds so that it makes a good connection to your acupuncture channel, then just relax, meditate and watch what happens. This was my habit when I had anxiety rising in the middle of the night going through a crisis. By concentrating on centring during the treatments my trust in the process grew.
This is my message for you today about worry and anxiety – they are not real. They are phobic manifestations in our mind. When they first appear, that is the time to switch them off.
Apply other Modalities
In addition, you may want to use other relaxing ways, drink more water, eat right, exercise as a meditation – Chi Kung or TaiChi, take more Vit.C and D, take herbal tablets such as Kwei Bi Wan, which pacifies the heart and nourishes the spleen. Have those around in case you need calmness so that these relationships of the organ systems become balanced.
This is what our journey is, about the relationships and how the right psychology emerges from understanding the Five-Elements Theory.
I hope that you have a wonderful day. I’m having a great day now.
Keep well and be happy. Thank you, Anna

The Role of Fear in Anxiety Disorder
If you have ever experienced anxiety attacks, even a single one of them, it has left a terrifying imprint in your mind that can fill you with irrational fears and worries. Dealing with anxiety disorder is not a small thing and fear of them can trigger new symptoms.
A friend of mine, usually calm and collected, asked for help on how to deal with anxiety and fears. A devastating experience that took place a decade ago had landed her in the hospital. Now the symptoms had appeared out of the blue.
She had carried suppressed anxiety stress all these years.
They had emerged as:
The feeling of being stressed out
Inability to concentrate
Occasional chest pain
Extremely Western in her lifestyle, my friend felt that the Chinese Medicine approach was too alien to her. But to overcome her constant state of tension and paralyzing symptoms she was open to try other alternatives. I suggested that she go to www.PanicAway.com to check out Barry Joe’s anxiety self-help system. He has assisted tens of thousands of people to get their lives back on healthy track again.
Symptoms vary from person to person, therefore the ones in the above list may not be similar to yours, but if you suspect that your symptoms belong to the anxiety disorder category, you may also want to learn about our non-invasive Anxiety Self Help page.
With either approach, you’ll be glad you followed through!
If any questions or comments come to your mind about stress and especially about anxiety disorder please feel free to convey them to me. I’ll be happy to listen and exchange ideas and experiences with you!
