Handling a panic attack:
1. Control your emotional state with your
Breath fully into all parts of your torso.
Breathe steadily - do not jerk the breath.
You can breathe fast or slow, through the mouth or nose. Do what feels best.
2. Identify your feelings without trying to
What are the feelings: fear? pain?
3. Witness your feelings.
Step back mentally from them. See them from a place above, where they can’t
get to you.
4. Go to your “safe place.”
Visualize a setting where you feel completely safe. This could be a childhood
memory, with a certain person, or a fantasy place in your imagination. Or,
you could visualize a psychic sphere all around you, protecting you from
harmful outside influences.
5. Ground yourself.
Imagine a connection from the center of the earth up to you. Feel the earth’s
supportive energy. See your negativity being drawn back down to the earth.
Learning how to handle panic attacks is best accomplished
through a comprehensive program, such as the Emotional Clearing program.
As you become educated about feelings and learn the tools for dealing with
them, and do so on a regular basis, you acquire skills to manage feelings
at more stressful times, and the likelihood for panic attacks is eliminated.
The predisposition for panic attacks indicates a high
level of suppressed feelings, and a tendency to being “enmeshed”
with the feelings: letting them overcome you, being identified with them.
The feelings keep jumping out at appropriate times, and not knowing what
is happening or how to handle it, panic results.
