Corinne Zupko is the author of From Anxiety To Love: A Radical New Approach for Letting Go of Fear and Finding Lasting Peace. Her journey with anxiety began at age two when she was diagnosed with separation anxiety. Her anxieties heightened in college and she found herself feeling like she was living an abnormal life.
Everything changed when she read the book A Course In Miracles. After learning about the two parts of our mind, she was able to find solace from her anxiety attacks. Becoming aware of the fearful thought system in her mind, she realized that even if it may seem like the loudest thoughts in her head, there was always a stable place to lean on. The second thought system, the higher self, was there ready for her whenever she wanted to cut ties with the fearful system.
This conversation with Corinne reminded me of the importance of our internal focus. If we only observe our fearful thoughts, we live in a constant state of fear. What would happen if we focused on the higher power thoughts? I immediately found that my higher power thoughts were happy to speak up and affirm to me that I was doing a great job and had nothing to fear.
In this episode, Corinne and I talk about our experiences with anxiety attacks, how to calm yourself down when you are in the thick of one and why we need to be aware of the thought systems controlling our minds.
