Worry, big or small blocks positive vibrations from enteringyour realm. The longer the behavior, the deeper the roots,the harder to override. Staying in its merry-go-roundplaces the person in a form of trance. And like alltrances, the person in the trance isn't aware that they arethere. If told they are in a trance, they would simply denyit.

A self-mirror change requires persistent external feedbackor shaking event before noticeable by a person in a trance.Even with strong positive feedback, it may take years beforethe person is open enough to accept the feedback astruthful. This is because when our internal dialogue makesa choice it closes that file and changes that belief totheir truth. Because we don't lie to our inner dialogue, itautomatically accepted it as truth. And to open it up toreconsideration is taking a risk. The common reasoning,everyone has worries, is a perceived truth, yet it is anincorrect filter.

The good news is that as a belief it’s replaceable. Tostart, the person in the trance needs to allow themselves tosee their status and with a distorted vision, it isn't easy.Where the behavior stems from doesn't really matter.Because worry is an easy path of least resistance, it ispainless to stay on its carousel.

Here are ten alternative activities and experiences forguidance off the carousel:

1. Physical exercise. This can be something indoor oroutdoors, dancing, or just household chores.

2. Practice muscle relaxation techniques. Start with onemuscle and progressively move to the next, and continue.Deep relaxation practice for 10 to 15 minutes every dayremoves stress, worry, and increases energy level andproductivity. Resource:http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/har/les1.htm

3. Learn abdominal breathing techniques. This increasesoxygen to the brain and muscles, stimulates nervous system,promotes positive energy (and attraction) between mind andbody that radiates outward. The easiest technique is to lieon your back, place a hand on the stomach, and breathe inand out while observing the hand raise and lower. Watch ababy breathe, they breathe this way naturally.

4. Emotional music. Music that brings out the warm fuzzies,returns a fond memory, makes your soul sing, or warms yourspirit.

5. Allow a distraction. Watch TV, go to a movie, play avideo game, research on the Internet, read an inspirationpoetry or story. Even at age 50, I still love, "The LittleEngine That Could."

6. Verbal discussion or expression. Talk with someone aboutthe worry. They don't need to respond with solutions justcompassion.

7. Stop and build something with your hands. If you garden,plant or pull weeds. Fix a lamp, paint a wall, or sandpaperan old table.

8. Play a game. Solitaire, a mind game, jigsaw, orcrossword puzzle. A board game with the kids or Chess withyour significant other.

9. Allow the artist in you to emerge. Find the kidscrayons, do you paint or like to draw with pencils orcolored pens. Play around, experiment, explore, and play.It loosens the grip. This opens up the other side of thebrain and balances the stress from the other side.

10. Journal or write the worry away. Many times the worryisn't as bad as our mind makes it out to be. Explorepossible options or write about a fond memory you have thathas nothing to do with the worry. Keep the writing lightand airy. If you find the writing getting heavy, shift tosomething else.

Cut and post this list on the refrigerator. At the firstsign of worry, pull something from the list that feels goodat the time or fits into the time you have available.Adjust the list as you find things that do and do not work.Enroll the help of friend to let you know when your languagereaps worry.

If worry follows you to work, here are 10 ways to helploosen its grip so you can focus on your job. The worsething you can do is deny its there and push it down. Nomatter how hard you think you've succeeded, people can seethe change.

1. Take a slow walk to the bathroom, kitchen, or waterfountain.

2. Write for three minutes, dump everything onto the page,and then tear it to shreds. Then write something positivefor another three minutes.

3. Relax each muscle, start with the toes, and move upwards.Until relax.

4. Focus on your breath. Do just a few minutes of abdominalbreathing (see #3 above).

5. Change surroundings even if briefly.

6. Talk to someone else for a few minutes about somethingpositive and not about t the job.

7. Eat an apple slowly, deliberately; focus on each bite andits taste.

8. Listen to someone share a story about something theyenjoy.

9. If possible, turn on some music (headphones). A songonly takes three minutes and worry can distract you all day.It’s worth the three-minute investment.

10. Even gentle movement changes physiology and focus.Stand up, move, stretch, or sway to the music -- real orimagined.

Separate the truth from the perceived facts. Afterwards,brainstorm whatever possibilities come forth.

If any of these items are not helping, there may be anatural process occurring. When stressed, the brain’sfrontal lobe, the thinking part, sends all its blood to theback part of your brain -- also known as flight or fightsyndrome. This stops rational thinking. This occurs withany strong emotion, especially anger. Ask someone else forhelp with the rational thinking until the blood transfersback. It’s fruitless to try to force rational thinkingduring this time. People in a trance are not able.
