Maybe helpful to know that those panic attacks, the reasons for them, come from the ego, which is a part of the human psyche that developed eons ago for purposes of survival and protection. The ego directs us to feel fear and uncertainty so that we’ll be prepared to stay home in the cave or run away from the saber-toothed tiger.
So we have to find that place in our consciousness from where we can just watch the ego and what it is trying to do and say, yeah, okay, but I’m just fine as I am … I don’t have to protect myself any more in those ways, not with being afraid and being uncertain, but by loving and seeing and appreciating my own confidence and certainty in my abilities to adapt and handle any situation, because I’m aware of my entire soul existence. That’s all the protection and safety that I need.
Remember, that “cloud” that we talked about as a way of imagining our higher self, our soul — and it’s not a cloud like those in the sky that we can’t see through; it’s a cloud of radiating, shimmering, glowing, energy waves — that’s where we have made certain choices about the kinds of possible experiences that we’ll have in this lifetime; and it, which is really our own higher guiding self, it never gives us more than we can handle. Whatever we’re having to deal with in the present moment is exactly the right thing for us to be doing at exactly this time, helping us to develop our sense of gratitude and joy and confidence in our own unique personal strengths.
