Some simple emotional self-empowerment techniques include:

From the outset, it should be noted that whilst facing negative situations, we should always try to concentrate on positive thoughts and memories. Positive thoughts are our enabling thoughts – positive memories are our emotional identity.

On the other hand, negative thoughts disable us - and negative memories steal our emotional identity.  These negative emotions that originate from our minds - or from our circumstances - are primarily responsible for our negative attitudes.

This being so, it is possible (at least in theory) for us to stop a severe attack of negative emotions (panic attack etc) before it is able to overwhelm us.

Stopping a negative emotional onslaught needs to be quick to prevent all that negativity dispersing throughout the whole of the body. If this negativity is allowed to diffuse it makes it very difficult to resolve afterwards.

CONCENTRATION MEDITATION

Meditation is a tool that is often employed as a means by which we seek to improve ourselves. Not only physically, emotionally and mentally but also spiritually. Practitioners inform us that it should be experienced twice daily for at approximately 15 – 30 minutes This, it is believed will build up our capacity to resist our negative emotions.

There are said to be literally hundreds of types of meditation. The secret is to find the one that suits you and adapt it to suit your needs. Ideally the process should ‘happen’ in a safe place free from discomfort and distraction. A quiet place where one can be undisturbed. Remember to switch of all phones etc. Arrange yourself in a comfortable position for 15 to 20 minutes. In this ‘comfort zone’ there are two essential steps:

        The silent repetition of a word, sound, phrase, or prayer and the passive return back to repetition whenever a panic attack occurs.

        Secondly meditation is believed to promote certain hormonal secretions which encourage a euphoria of mind which is obviously good for general mental health

It also appears that when we meditate with our eyes closed  - we naturally withdraw from our surroundings to get the results we seek. It can take weeks, months or even years to gain complete mastery. But you can do it. It will be worth it.


READING ENCOURAGING LITERATURE OR LISTENING TO MOTIVATIONAL TAPES:

Being inspired is important – it gives us hope and boosts our morale. Read motivational literature. Watch motivational films.  Listen to motivational music or stories.

Inspiration motivates, as do using positive thinking phrases. Such affirmations require a great deal of effort to remember and repeat over and over again – but they do work.yourself - self Repeating this process day after day, over a period of time, this so-called Insight Meditation can re-design and re-fashion a new you.
