One of the most common complaints I hear in my practice is anxiety. That nagging feeling of unease and fear that might be directed towards something or someone, or might just be there for no obvious reason.
This feeling can be very debilitating, and the coping mechanisms range from staying at home, because the outside world seems too frightening and scary, to drinking alcohol or taking anti-anxiety drugs. These drugs can be helpful in the short term, but never treat the root cause of the problem. They mask the feeling but are never the answer. When the medication is stopped, the feeling of anxiety returns, often stronger than before.
When a client first comes in with anxiety, I ask how strong it is felt on a scale from 0 to 10, with 10 being a full blown panic attack and 0 meaning no anxiety. It is amazing how many people report living with a constant level of anxiety of about 7 to 8.
Anxiety can be healed through an energetic treatment
From an energetic perspective, anxiety is a disorganization of the vital energy that runs in your body. It is misaligned and thus causes the symptoms.
When anxiety hits, the energy that runs through your meridians (energy lines) and chakras (energy centers) goes haywire. Most of the energy will move upward, which creates a “spaced out” and “foggy” feeling. A big part of the energy shoots up into the heart chakra, which produces heavy breathing and heart palpitations. The right and left part of the brain become unbalanced and thinking clearly becomes almost impossible.
Since anxiety is caused by disorganized energy, it can be healed through properly aligning the energy again.
When I start a medical intuitive healing session, I first look into the energy body to find out how the energy looks like in the client.
This what a typical energetic reading of someone who suffers from anxiety looks like:
The Aura, which is the energetic field around the body that gives a sense of protection, is usually very thin. This goes hand in hand with a feeling of being vulnerable. The outside world is perceived as a hostile place and someone with an Aura like this can not really relax, their nervous system is constantly “on guard”. They constantly feel “attacked” and feel the need to defense and protect themselves.
Next, I look into the main energy centers of the body, which are also called “the chakra system”. Every chakra is an energetic center of it’s own and supplies energy to different parts of the body. But the charkas also function like little software discs. They store all the information of everything that ever happened to you.
You might have had a frightening experience that was long time ago, but the energetic information of that shock is still held in the chakra. This energy informs the body today and thus leads to anxiety.
This is the reason why talk therapy will not remove the unwanted feelings, because it never addresses the underlying energy. It will help you understand yourself better, but the troublesome feelings often remain.
Most people with anxiety are also very “psychic”, which means that they can pick up on others people thoughts effortlessly and often, part of their anxiety stems from the fact that they are picking up on other people’s anxiety!
Most times, the root chakra, which is the energy center at the bottom of the spine that connects you energetically to the ground, is very unbalanced. This leads to a “spaced out” feeling.
Once I have done a thorough analysis of the energy centers, I move on to finding the root cause of the anxiety.
The so-called root cause is the energy with which the cycle of anxiety started. It can stem from a traumatic event that is still held in place in the energy centers of the body. Most often, this event can stem from childhood, your adult life, but also from your birth and the time you were in the womb. If your mother had anxiety when she was pregnant with you, chances are high that you too will experience anxiety at some point in your life. This is because the embryo or fetus is directly connected to the mother, not only physically, but emotionally as well.
Once we have found the true cause of the anxiety, we release this energetic information from your system and replace it with life affirming and calming energy. When this is done, the energy can re-align and the healing occurs.
When appropriate, I also teach clients a simple hands-on technique that they can do when they experience anxiety to temporarily re-align the energy and lessen the symptoms.
After a successful treatment, many people report feeling more grounded and safe in their bodies. The world-view changes from “a hostile” place to “a friendly place”. The quality of life improves dramatically and with a new sensed feeling of independence, strength and self-confidence, many people refer to the treatment as “getting their life back”.
Thank you for this website. It has been informative. I do have anxiety. At first it was uncontrollable and exhausting. It has created much distress in my body that I am trying to correct. I found that 5 big deep belly breaths help me tremendously. I am looking for alternative techniques to truely cleanse my mind, body and emotions. I wil look into your technique more thoroughly.
Thank you for your comment and I am glad you find my website informative. Please don’t hesitate to contact me via email should you have more questions.
PS: Have you checked your thyroid hormones? too much or too little thyroid hormones is a common reason for anxiety in women.
Dear Dr. Johnson, anxiety has been with me almost all of my life. It had disappeared through some periods of my life but so far it had always returned. When it gets worst I can’t sleep and have had long periods of insomnia and panic attacks. I’ve been on a psychiatric treatment since july 2011, first with sertraline and alprazolam (tafil) and now with mirtazapine. This last drug worked very well for almost 6 months, but now it is not working any more, and I’m feeling bad again. Since I experience anxiety as an unbalance on my heart chakra I’m looking for an energetic treatment. Thus my question are:
1. Do you think acupunture would help?
2. Do you think some kind of meditation would help? In such a case, which one?
Thank you very much in advance,
Thank you very much for your comment.
Anxiety can have many root causes, physical as well as emotional. On the physical side, I would recommend you get your thyroid levels checked, if you have not done so. You need to ask your physician to check for TSH, fT4 and fT3. Please note that the last two parameters are normally not checked for in a routine blood test, but they are important as TSH is only an indirect test and often does not show the real picture. Avoiding any stimulants like coffee or energy drinks is also highly recommended. Electro magnetic radiation can also contribute to anxiety. You can read more on this subject here: http://drkatharina.com/electrosensitivity/
On the emotional side, I would recommend you start working with a skilled therapist, who can help you either release past traumas, or help you deal with daily stress in a constructive way. Good nutrition and excercise are also important. Meditation and acupuncture can certainly help you as well and I do recommend it. When starting a meditation practice, it is important to dedicate some time to it every day. You can start out with 15 minutes and then increase it slowly. A good form of meditation is one where you just sit still and observe your breath. When a thought comes in and you get lost in the thought, just gently remind yourself to focus on the breath again. The goal is not to “not think”, but to keep your awareness on your breath. Over time and with a bit of practice, this simple meditation can help you to still your mind or to not believe every single thought. (which is ultimately a good thing)
I hope this information helps and please feel free to contact me again should you have more questions. A medical intuitive session can be of help as well.
Thank you for this article about healing anxiety! I now know from my own history of countless treatments without results that what lies behind my physical ailment is a psychologic trauma that I do not remember. I don`t know how to release it and it makes a toxic burden. A medical intuitive seems to be what I need (I did have several consultations with a psychic person and it helped me to understand some things in my life, but it never touched the core and did not release anything and was more mental, I guess.) I have one question: If you see the root cause and what the trauma was all about – will you tell the person? Or can you make the trauma and the accompaning fear energy go away without the person having to know exactly what happened? I am not sure if I would be ready for the truth, but I do agree that very often one has to do important work on the emotional and spiritual level to get well.
I would be happy for your answer!
Thank you very much for your comment. To answer your question: Most of the time the people I work with want to know why they have anxiety, and if they have a trauma that has been with them for a long time, they also want to know the trauma. So I tell them. But I also understand that it can be too overwhelming to hear the truth, and in this case I will not tell the person. It all depends on how one is open to hearing it and if it is necessary for the healing. In some cases, hearing it might not be necessary as the body knows it on a deep level anyhow. The mind just does not know it. And you are completely right in writing that one has to do the work as well. I can do my part, but for complete healing, one has to the their part as well. This can mean meditation or changing the focus of their thoughts etc. Whatever will work best for you will come up in a session. Not everyone is the same. As I have mentioned in previous posts, sometimes a physical check up might be requiered as well as anxiety can also stem from a physical condition. I hope this answers your question and please feel free to contact me in case you want to know more or if you want to do some work together.
Hi can you help me thankyou
Please subscribe to my wait list and I will contact you once a spot opens up for a session.
Wishing you the very best, and please be patient as the list is currently long.
Can you send the energy clearing audio thru email so I can download it to my phone?
Yes. The energy clearing audios and meditations are sent to your email address. You can download them directly onto your phone or listen to them online.
chakra cleansing is something I think might help with my anxiety. However the thought of seeing someone to restore my energy levels is anxiety provoking to some degree. Does this increase anxiety at all if relaxing is not something I’m comfortable with?
I would suggest you first work with your subconscious mind to help you feel more safe. This will help to re-train your nervous system to be more comfortable around relaxing. Then, I suggest you find someone to work with who you really trust.

Anxiety and other similar emotions can also be triggered by lifestyles, by the foods we eat and by the thoughts we have. These negative emotions can be relieved through various practices. The anxiety relief sample looks good. Very comforting voice. 🙂 Have you tried essential oils, crystals and certain foods for healing? Do you think these can help along with the usage of audio programs?
Thank you for your thoughtful comment.
Yes, certain foods (especially mineral-rich foods), along with mineral supplements can ease anxiety by supporting the parasympathetic nervous system.
Essential oils like lavender can help too. I am not too familiar with using crystal, but you can for sure give it a try.
Wishing you the very best!
Thank you for the fast reply!
You are very welcome!
Very interested in natural healing
