Did you know there is actually no concrete proof anxiety or depression are caused by a chemical imbalance? Or that it’s a genetic disorder? Well you should do! But for some reason, they’ve become things that people trot out as fact. I’m not going to spend ages referring to the proof for this as it would take up too much blog space – do the research and you’ll see (check out the resources at the bottom of the page too).
Did you know that the third highest cause of death in the United States is iatrogenic (behind only cancer and heart disease)? If you’re thinking “What the hell are you on about Tim?!,” you’d be well within your rights, as it’s not something that’s well known. But it should be. Iatrogenic death is one caused by medical treatment. In other words, DEATH BY DOCTOR! Pretty shocking, right?
This is going to be my most controversial post so far! Perhaps the biggest aspect to overcoming anxiety (and depression) is awareness. Awareness comes from education. Once you understand what anxiety and depression actually are, you can then start to make the steps towards eradicating it. And let me be very clear; they CAN be eradicated!! Unfortunately, there are a lot of myths and very bad information knocking around, much of which has become “common knowledge”. This is one of the reasons anxiety and depression is getting WORSE in society. When myths such as “It’s a disease” and “a chemical imbalance” or “a genetic disorder” are now spoken as fact, it’s little wonder so many continue to struggle. They are not facts.
Another video blog for you today and this time I talk about awareness and why it is THE key ingredient to defeating anxiety (and changing your life in general). And never forget – anxiety CAN be defeated!
The Law of Attraction has really stepped up this past month! Remember in my very first post, when I asked if I could create my dream life in one year? Or my 3 Law of Attraction posts where I discussed whether it could be bullshit? Or the 3 posts about my psychic reading? Well these 3 people could provide answers to all of them. Because let there be no mistake; if these relationships lead onto what I think they might, they are going to change my life in unbelievable ways.
I knew this day would come. I couldn’t start a blog about anxiety without discussing what caused it. Although it’s been 5 years since it happened, I’ve still only ever talked to one person about it. That was a therapist and then, it was reluctantly. Now, I’m going to open up about what happened and how it affected me for the first time – and to the whole WORLD!!
I guess the only reason I can do this now is because mentally, I’m in a good place. I’m not gonna lie, I don’t forgive my attacker and probably never will. Many people will say that I need to forgive in order to fully move on. Maybe that’s true. Part of me actually would love nothing more than to get in a room with this guy and face him one to one in a fair, fully-clothed battle. Let’s see how he fares then. Right now, I don’t want to forgive. The only forgiving I really needed to do to move on, was with myself.
When I tell people that I used to be so anxious I barely left the house, struggled to speak, hated myself and was constantly paranoid about what total strangers were thinking about me, every single person is shocked. That’s because today, people see me as outgoing, outspoken, sociable and unafraid to do whatever I want. When I tell them that it took me just 1 hour of hypnotherapy to change to the way I am today, they can’t believe it! Neither could I, to be fair! But it’s the 100%, cast-iron truth. My mission is to get other people to understand that there are ways to completely eradicate social and generalised anxiety that they may not even have considered, or thought that there was no way they could work. So here is my hypnotherapy story.
Hola! Today I thought I’d mix things up with with my first ever video blog. I wanted to update you on a few fantastic things that have been happening in my life which I believe are going to lead to it turning into that dream life I’ve been banging on about!
In my first blog post 3 months ago, I asked if could create my dream life in 1 year. A month or two ago, it was still looking unlikely. Now, things have suddenly and drastically changed! But it all began with me making a simple choice. Learn about this in my video below!
In part one, I mentioned 5 anecdotes, seemingly amazing coincidences that happened during my spiritual awakening. But were they just coincidences? Or were they signs from an unseen force? The most amazing of these coincidences was the appearance of 333 on my gym locker – the day after I’d asked the universe for a numerological sign!
The number 3 apparently signifies growth, with 333 representing the trinity of mind, body and spirit. If you see 333, it means that you need to reconnect with what is in your soul. Your mind, body and spirit need working on but 333 is there to show that you are on the right path – it is a sign of encouragement and assistance. All of this makes perfect sense to where I was at the time. I was really struggling some days, unsure of what I was learning and if it could all be true. Other days, I was high as a kite, rejuvenated, grateful to be learning about the truth, and had faith that I could do anything.
During my spiritual awakening last year, I experienced 5 really weird things that were so unusual, I thought that they possibly could be more than just coincidence. They appeared to be signs, deliberately brought to me for a reason. Let’s check them out and see if you agree!
THE BMW Z4
This was my first experience of what may or may not be, a spiritual manifestation. It was about a year ago and I was about halfway through my year-long spiritual awakening. I’d learnt about the law of attraction and so decided to try my hand at visualising things into existence. The very first time I tried this, I pictured myself living in a lovely apartment in London, earning lots of money as a trader and driving a silver BMW Z4. The very next morning, I opened my curtains and what was the first thing I saw staring back at me from the street?
If you were to ask me at what point did I truly start to believe that this existence, this reality, this world, was something other than what we’ve been taught and perceive with our limited six senses, I would say that it was when I underwent reiki. It was a major moment in my spiritual awakening and changed the way I look at the medical profession, forever.
Reiki is a Japanese natural health treatment in which practitioners work with the unseen energy within our body and around it. Reiki means “universal life energy” and works on the basis that, as is common right across large parts of Asia, our world, including our own bodies, are made up of energy and in order to maintain good health, we need to ensure this energy is balanced and harmonious. It can be used for both physical and emotional healing.
