This is a guided visualization to help you to overcome Social Anxiety.
It is the first video in a series of 8 total session that take you one step at a time toward
truly healing the negative feelings that exist in you due to social anxiety.
This particular video is to help you to learn a very effective NLP technique: Anchoring.
What are anchors?
In NLP, “anchoring” refers to the process of associating an internal response with some external or internal trigger so that the response may be quickly, and sometimes covertly, re accessed.
To illustrate…if someone were to be driving over a bridge on a day when they were particularly anxious and possibly suffered a panic attack while crossing the bridge, an anchor can sometimes form. The next time that person is driving over a bridge, the mind remembers the panic caused previously and re associates it with the bridge. Suddenly bridges are avoided subconsciously at first. The more the person avoids the bridge, the stronger the fear and the stronger the anchor.
The same thing can often happen when we are in social setting. We may be nervous, self conscious, shy or maybe battling a low self esteem and suddenly we experience intense anxiety or a panic attack while in a social setting. The uncomfortable feelings brought about cause us to begin avoiding social settings, thus social settings is the anchor.
However, the good news is, in the same way that anchors that result in negative emotions and feelings can be established, anchors that help us feel peace, inner calmness, confidence can also be established.
Make it your goal to listen to this visualization for one week before moving on to video #2. The more you listen, the stronger your anchor will be!!
Nobody understands what you're going through more than someone who has been there. I grew up with narcissistic family member and had intimate relationships with malignant narcissists. For the majority of my healing journey, I felt as if I was all alone.
I now dedicate my life to being the person for others, that I needed on my own healing journey, so that YOU never feel alone.
