I have experienced bouts of anxiety in my life and have been searching for ways to decrease this feeling when it arises. Inspired by Jill Bolte Taylor’s account, I realized that many fears I have are not realistic and I certainly don’t need or want them in my life. So what to do? Begin building new neuropathways of love. Anytime fear or anxiety crop up, I can recognize my body’s need to protect me and gently tell myself that I appreciate this protection, but it is no longer needed. I can fill this anxiety with love. I am safe. In meditation, I breathe in love and breathe out love. Love fills my being with each breathe and soon there is no need for anxiety. I am Love.
