It’s fairly normal to grow glum during the winter months or feel stressed and anxious about everything there is to do. Many people suffer from seasonal affective disorder (SAD) when there is less daylight and it becomes cold. SAD can make people depressed and anxious.
There’s a lot we can all do to be more positive and uplifting. Here are some steps to take to bring more positivity and peace into your own life, and to spread those qualities around.Continue reading →
Some might question how exactly this is “Spirit Science”… So before I go any further, I’ll explain. “In the simplest sense, I wish to change the world. Revolution of light and colour, healing, transformation, spirit cities, people working together – global realization of Christ Consciousness.” – Jordan
I once asked Jordan what his original intent was when he began his spiritual journey and that is what he said. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, lets move forward! Continue reading →
Do you live each day with a constant nervousness, a sense of unease, a self-conscious awareness that forces you into obsessive introspection and excessive reflection? If this sounds like you, then you’re probably suffering from anxiety.
Anxiety can be a crushing feeling. If you’re dealing with anxiety though, don’t worry, because you’re not alone. Millions of people live with the same relentless angst and nervousness that you experience every day.
You may never even know if someone has anxiety because they naturally seek out social situation to compensate and minimize their psychological troubles. Ironically enough, the people who appear to be the most social and confident, can at the time be the people struggling with mind-numbing anxieties, or insecurities.
Anxiety is characterized as excessive nervousness and irrational worries. The feeling, as you may know, is really not easy to deal with on a regular basis.
Anxious minds often surround themselves with other people as a way to relieve anxiety. These social interactions create valuable moments of psychological release. However, when immersed in social situations an anxious mind may still find it difficult to not overthink things. Continue reading →
Fear and anxiety have a huge effect on our mind, body and perception of the world. When we are feeling anxiety, it is common to make mistakes that we later regret. While we think that perhaps we should have acted differently at the time, in the end, we have to remember that we do not perceive the world accurately when we are in this survival driven state.
To better explain what I mean I want to show you the findings from a study published in the journal of Current Biology. This study found that people who are struggling with generalized anxiety disorder will perceive harmless things or people as threats on an unconscious level. This, unfortunately, will often cause the anxious person to filter everything through a lens of fear.
If you have ever struggled with fear or anxiety you know how slippery the slope can be and without a good set of rebalancing tools, you can quickly spiral out of control and end up feeling depressed.
Anxious People Tend to worry When There’s “Nothing to Worry About”
“a psychological disorder characterized by excessive or disproportionate anxiety about several aspects of life, such as work, social relationships, or financial matters.”
“extreme worrying almost every day for six months or more may signal generalized anxiety disorder”
Except here’s the thing:
Fundamentally, anxiety is a result or a symptom of the design of our society. We have created strict lifestyles, jobs and social statuses to constantly maintain. We are emotionally disconnected as a collective and exist in a system that ultimately oppresses us. There is a lot to be anxious about, even if it’s simply the state of the world. Continue reading →
For the past 2 months there have been sporadic postings through Spirit Science about a program called Panic to Freedom, with a number of “Principle” videos emerging explaining very simple methods of moving from Panic and into Freedom, from Anxiety and into Inner Peace.
Well, the entire program is just about done, and I’ve been working around the clock for the past few weeks with Ray (the awesome guy in the PTF videos) trying to get everything ready. Were nearing completion, and planning to launch the full program at the end of the week!
On top of that, i’ve started a new Q+A series (Inspired by Teal) which i’ve been talking about doing. It just so happens that the first question I got was very related TO panic to freedom, so here is a video for you going over what the 4 principles are.
Panic to Freedom is a full blown online training course for working with Anxiety, Panic Attacks, and even Depression. The program was inspired by Brian and Ray, who came together and shared some amazing conversations and ideas. In this, they realized they wanted to share this with everyone in a simple, concise way – and Panic to Freedom was born.
They then contacted me (Jordan), I was good friends with them from a number of Spirit Science gatherings we did, and said they were missing a key element of the whole program, the director, and that i was the perfect man for the job :)
I accepted, and the program manifested over the past 2 months, in between all sorts of other projects and on-goings.
Principle 1: The Breath and the Body
Stay tuned! I’m super excited to finally be able to share this with everyone :)
