An author once spoke of how if you take the letters in the word anxiety and rearrange them it reads "any exit." At the root anxiety is often a desire to escape or get away from something. The freedom comes from moving in the opposite direction, which is towards whatever is there to address. When we're in a fear based or panicked state it's often hard to move towards the feelings, the intensity, the racing thoughts or the situations in our life that we feel powerless over. This, however, is a skill set that can be learned. What can be learned is to bring our loving presence and attention to the feelings, sensations, issues and life situations. The easiest way to begin is to have someone model that behavior to us. We develop the courage and ability to approach rather than avoid.
The anxiety is providing an opportunity to face what you have previously desired to escape, which is often what you decided you couldn't handle or are afraid will happen again (projected fears). Experiencing anxiety is not wrong. Having anxiety or panic attacks does not mean something is wrong with you. All it is, is pointing you towards something within you (thought patterns, belief systems, feelings/emotions) that are ready to be resolved, or something in your life that is demanding your attention.
