Recently an Akashic Records client reported experiencing panic which came out of nowhere about a year ago. Most panic arises from something hidden, something buried for a reason, not from your conscious thought patterns. Panic, a powerful soul level awakener, grabs your attention, forces you to address both your overwhelming feelings as well as what causes them.
The main Jin Shin Jyutsu® (JSJ) Japanese acupressure self-helps for panic include Safety Energy Lock (SEL) 5 with the little toe held side-to-side on the same foot, SEL 5 plus 16 always placing your right hand on the 5 regardless of which ankle you hold, and covering each pinkie fingernail with your thumb of the same hand. If you have a buddy available, ask them to hold each of your pinkie fingers with their hands crossed.
Many people report paying attention to their breath magnifies their panicky feeling. During the reading above, the records suggested my client consciously practice fully exhaling whenever panic arises. Exhaling activates the parasympathetic nervous system, a source of calming energy for your body.
Anything bringing present moment awareness can lessen panic. Meditation focused on a mantra, object, or breathing redirects your attention to something neutral. You can also consciously observe your surroundings or the sensations in your body to create an internal shift. You can release the past and the future to stay in the now by applying the JSJ self-help holding behind each knee both with your hands crossed and uncrossed.
