Anxiety and scenic panic

Anxiety and scenic panic

The anxiety is a cognitive emotional attitudeThis means that our emotional system uses it to avoid threatening situations or that generate enormous discomfort or sensation. With it we process the threatening information and, thus, allows us to carry out preventive actions in advance to avoid this future discomfort. So far I see her as a friend who tells you that if you go "there" you will fall into the hole and hurt yourself, right? ...

His unconditional brother, the scenic panic, is the result of situations where we expose ourselves to several people: interpret on stage, a musical audition, a presentation on your photographic exhibition, a presentation of your work, etc ... Well, if we take the definition of previous anxiety and take into account what happens to us to prevent an awkward situation ... if we are capable of not only focusing our attention on the fact that we have scenic panic or many nerves, we will realize that in reality, what our body is sending us is an enormously valuable message.

It turns out that he is sending us very clear signals that where the problem really is is how we are managing or feeling our art, our emotional artistic awareness, for being exposed to these people, or not. What does this mean? that surely, at some point in our lives, we live a traumatic moment that made us learn and internalize beliefs as famous as "these people who will say ... what will they think ... if they think that I am not good they will not accept me ... I am not valid because they have said that … etc." simply to protect ourselves and want to be accepted in a group, for several personal reasons of great depth and emotional importance.

This process occurs because we have worked or been in too much contact with our rational brain, the one that takes care that we live in an animal way, that detracts from creativity, that transmits us the psychological need for us to be socially accepted in a group, that does not let us live free and above all does not make us be ourselves. Our essence is being completely eaten as a human being, as a person. And the most important

While we work with our art, it is making us no longer enjoy it and as a result, we deteriorate it ... and this obviously in a healthy and full person, does not work that way. We will talk later about our cerebral emotional part, or creative "right hemisphere".

Anxiety and its causes

Many think that this problem so common in any area of ​​life has no solution, putting short-term patches with anxiolytics, breaths, relaxation techniques, blaming others ... that help, yes! But if you do not change that internal belief we are talking about, relaxation will not last long when you are exposed to your audience and will come back continuously.

Of course it has an arrangement and a huge positive part, you know which one? Yourself. Allowing you, finally, to begin an internal emotional process of belief change, discovering why you began to have that way of feeling your actions and uncovering your true and authentic self, among several other things. When we discover where that bad emotional management is, we may be able to model and change them in the most positive way you want, thus avoiding the resurgence of this intense discomfort, and in the long run so harmful to our health, etc.

If you live with a free mind, you allow yourself to see a much broader reality, with more options to change to feel full or happier in your life.
