To overcome anxiety attacks we need to understand the root cause of anxiety attacks.
No doubt anxiety is just a feeling. Feelings of uncertainty. In a deeper meaning anxiety is just an illusion. Just some prediction of unwanted result.
There is a starting point of anxiety, it starts when mind starts a journey into future. The fuel of the journey is fear.
Human mind is expert in creating stories. Out of the fear mind creates many stories of probability of results and when stories become horror movies and out of the fear anxiety attacks happens. So anxiety is mainly caused by fear of failure
The symptoms of anxiety attacks/panic attacks are

- Sense of terror, or impending doom or death
- feeling a loss of control
To overcome anxiety, we need to understand fear of failure
Fear of failure start from the mindset of “failure is bad”. When you reject the option failure mentally. “I don’t want to fail”. Then we create the option of fear of failure

You can make the scene even worse your girlfriend break up with you because you’re unemployed. Your parents are unhappy. They say you are good for nothing
You can check people who suffer from anxiety attacks on the important day. All are no2 types of story creators.
Amongst them there are another option for you. That is no3
NO3- When doubt about future arrives you can simply relax and stay in the present and just focus on job in the hand that is preparation.

Visualization is like dreaming but with a script. Before an event like exam an interview or public speaking if you close your eye and think about the moment the way you want to happen in future that’s called visualization. If you mastered this technique you can easily overcome anxiety attacks within a minutes.
How to visualization
- Create an environment that’s calm your mind. You can choose a natural place, a dark room, or you can play music.
- Sit in a comfortable place, Try to relax mind & body
- Now close your eyes and start dreaming. Think about your future project what giving you anxiety, and create a situation as you desire. If you are anxious about your exam think that you are writing with confident. Pepper is set as your expectation.
This is simple method but very effective. To get 100% benefits of visualization you need to focus on some key points
ADVANCE GUIDANCE OF VISUALIZATION
Visualization is powerless until you don’t use your all sense while practicing. For example when you see in your mind that you are writing with confidence you need to create a mental image that close to reality.
So you have to feel the sensation, emotion or thrill of sitting on exam hall in the presents.Don’t worry isn’t very tough. Here is the some tips for you for fill the future desire result while doing visualization
- Create a specific goal….what you want.
before exam you should know clearly what are the desired result for you. Once you know the desired outcomes now feel the emotion of achieving the result in present.
Another example if your anxious about the job interview. So you have to create the feeling in your mind or heart as you will feel after achieving the result. If you can catch the emotion of desire success, now stick to it and create some scenes your success will provide to you. Like
- your parents are now proud of you
- You receive your first salary
- You win the love of your dream girl because you have the job now
- You are sitting in your office and enjoying your work
Just feel the emotion without emotion visualization is powerless and if you practice visualization with proper feelings and emotion it will do miracle for you. Overcome anxiety attacks is a very small effect of visualization. Your life can change dramatically
I will explain you how visualization work. Before that let me explain another tool to overcome anxiety attacks that is Affirmation
Affirmations are some positive sentences that repeated mentally in order to deliver a message to subconscious mind . And affirmation can do wonder to help you overcome anxiety attacks.
If you are a singer and next day performance is giving you anxiety then you can create some positive sentences and repeated those in your mind for some times than your subconscious mind will receive that message. As I mentioned earlier anxiety is created by your subconscious mind.
Some example of affirmation for a singer who will perform next day
- I am singing confidently and people are enjoying my performance
- I am a great singer and I will show my magic tomorrow
- I have the all potential to become a great singer.
These are some example and you can create affirmation that relevent to you
Affirmation & visualization do have similarities.But visualization is creating some mental image and affirmation is repeating some sentences that similar with you desire feelings.
But main goal behind both is same.Push your subconscious mind to stop creating anxiety. So in order to overcome anxiety attacks you need to practice both visualization & affirmation with proper feelings or emotion.
How visualization and affirmation work, here is the scientific reason
- Our subconscious mind is very powerful it can make us super powerful or extremely weak human being. But subconscious mind has a weakness that it can’t identify dream or reality separately.
- This is the reason behind, when we see a dream while sleeping we can’t separate dream with reality. We think dream is a reality.
- When we sleep our conscious mind stop working then only subconscious mind is active
- Thus when we use visualization to creates desire thoughts in mind and feel like reality then subconscious mind receive the message, that is your desired outcomes is already achieve.
As I EXPLAIN EARLIER ANXIETY HAPPENS WHEN MIND START A JOURNEY INTO FUTURE AND CREATE LOTS OF FEAR BY CONSTRUCTING THE UNWANTED RESULT
So to overcome anxiety attacks we need to do opposite what mind did to create anxiety. That is visualization and affirmation.
Hope this article will help you to overcome anxiety attacks permanently from your life.
