Anxiety plane

It’s wild.


13 months ago I got anxiety attacks while even looking at an airplane in the sky.


For someone that was more often on an airport than in a metro pre pandemic,


Experiencing these sensation was.. unknown.


Post pandemic, & after hitting corona pretty hard, shifts in my brain and body happened.


Looking at airplanes made me feel nauseous. I saw danger. I saw in safety. I felt scared.


During that time I went through a phase where I didn’t feel safe in my mind nor body.


Everything appeared to be a threat.


I saw danger everywhere.


My nervous system was constantly in fight, flight & freeze mode.


My mind was racing, stuck in loops of fears & what ifs.


Both my mind and body were in total survival mode, disconnected from each other.


Fast forward, here I am.


Calmest than I ve ever been. I look at planes in the sky & I feel awe.


I see adventure. I see people’s stories. I feel excitment.


In the plane, I am able to look out the window & admire the world.


Feeling so in awe. So at peace. So light.


What did I do?

I focused on..

..reesrablishing a safe mind body connection.


Reparent my inner child

Understanding how my body tries to protect me.

Rewire my brain & nervous system

Become a master in self.


Understanding each pattern, feeling each emotions, learning each cue from my body.


I had 2 choices in these moments.

  1. Let fear take over & reduce travelling

  2. Let my dreams & visions for my life take over & face my fears head on

I chose two. I took 20+ flight since then.


And through that I built resilience.


That kind of resilience that gives you the trust in yourself that you can handle any situation.


I broke through the scary voices in my head.


I broke through self sabotaging patterns.


I broke through survival mode, cultivating thriving mode.


That is what a big breakthrough is for me about.


The accumulation of daily tiny breakthroughs.


Just imagine how that would feel like for you.
