Do You Know Where Your Anxiety Originated?

Anxiety is a form of negative energy and it may be holding you back.

The first law of thermodynamics, known as the Law of Conservation of Energy, states:

“Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, only transferred or changed from one form to another.”

I’m no physicist and that’s about all I know about the aforementioned Law, but, it’s pretty straightforward. We are all energy beings. It’s what gives our bodies life, that spark, animation. Some may call it personality.

But it’s more than that. That energy contains the sum of our beliefs, experiences, and attitudes.

Consider that when our bodies die, that energy that made us, us still exists. Consider also that, that energy is floating around for a time and is then transferred to another body.

Yes, I mean reincarnation.

And if you’ve had to fight to stay alive and experienced trauma, that energy may manifest in the form of anxiety in the here and now. But if it's from another life, that energy no longer serves you.

Though we cannot consciously recall past life experiences, we carry around the lessons and imprints of our past lives in our field of energy. It’s most likely the thing that creates those experiences knows as déjà vu. It’s difficult to explain why we have them, but it’s also impossible to deny that we do.

Energy takes many forms and it is not all negative. To prove my point, let’s look at this energy in the form of knowledge.

G is for Genius


Mozart wrote his first piece of music at the age of five and performed before two imperial courts by the age of six.

Stevie Wonder

Stevie Wonder, born blind, learned to write music, sing, and play the piano, organ, harmonica, and drums. He began recording music and performing professionally at the age of 12.

H.P. Lovecraft

Howard Phillips (H.P.) Lovecraft, one of the most influential horror writers of the 20th century, learned to read at the age of two and was writing complex poetry by the age of six.

Enrico Fermi

Nobel Prize winner Enrico Fermi, a mathematical and physics prodigy who ushered in the nuclear age, wrote a doctoral-level admissions essay when he applied for entrance into the University of Pisa (Italy). He was 18. He received his first post-secondary degree at the age of just 21.

And there are many more.

How could they have the skill and knowledge to do what they did at such young ages? Can you honestly believe that they knew what they knew from their few years here in their current lives?

How do you explain it?

It’s simple: energy transfer.

Let’s apply this energy where this piece began:

Some of the energy we carry forward is more in the negative vein.

In Many Lives, Many Masters, Brian Weiss, M.D, a psychotherapist and now famous past-life regression therapist, uses hypnotherapy to treat his patient, Catherine. Catherine suffered from anxiety, panic attacks, nightmares, insomnia, fear of drowning, the dark, and dying.

After 18 months of intense psychotherapy, Catherine’s symptoms had not improved. Dr. Weiss could not treat her with medication as she was afraid of choking and therefore, could not swallow pills. She finally agreed to hypnosis.

While in a state of trance, Catherine recalled traumatic childhood events. A near-drowning experience at the age of five when she was pushed into a pool from the diving board; a depressed mother who had undergone electroshock therapy and was unable to care for her; and an alcoholic father who had molested her at the age of three.

She remembered these things. Still, her symptoms did not improve. Photo by Danica Tanjutco on Unsplash

Past Lives

Dr. Weiss was at a loss.

He took her back to the age of two where she recalled nothing traumatic. So he gave her the instruction to:

“Go back to the time from which your symptoms arose.”

She immediately regressed to a past life. This is where her symptoms started, and in a few weeks, they abated and disappeared altogether. She released the energy of the experience from another time. It had kept her alive, but it was no relevant to her current life.

She was cured. No symptoms. No medication. The root of her fear and anxiety was not in this life, despite her horrific childhood experiences.

I trained with Brian Weiss and was a hypnotist for several years, though the economy forced me back into a regular 9–5 job.

In my practice, I saw firsthand how past life regressions helped people heal, physically and emotionally, understand relationships, and let go of bad habits, including the need for cigarettes.

Yup, cigarettes. I regressed one patient to a past life where he smoked while he took his turn for the night watch. This kept him awake and alive. Once he was consciously aware of his smoking origin, he realized cigarettes were killing him, not keeping him alive, and he was able to quit.

Another woman I treated could not sleep for more than three hours at a time. Through past life regression therapy, she experienced a life where she was forced to flee on foot through a forest and other dangerous landscapes.

It was a time when people traveled by horse, if they had money. She slept on the cold, hard ground. Due to hunger and discomfort, she couldn’t sleep more than a few hours at a time.

Again, this served her well in that life as it was important for her to keep moving because of the cold, predators, and even other people. However, in this life it did not serve her well. Once she was regressed and became consciously aware of her insomnia, she was able to release that energy.

I checked back after six months and she reported that she was sleeping six or more hours a night, uninterrupted.


Anxiety, or the energy of anxiety, follows a similar pattern. Sometimes it has no rhyme or reason that we can connect to our current lives. It is illogical. Where is it coming from?

As you know, nothing comes from a vacuum.

Or maybe we can connect it to our current lives but still can’t release it. Hypnosis may offer another alternative.

So if traditional therapy isn’t working, or is working but you’d like to bump your mental health IQ up a bit, it might not be a bad idea to try past life regression therapy as an adjunct.

Talk to your doctor and don’t go cold turkey or stop taking your meds. It’s best when you, your doctor, and the hypnotist work together. If you can find a doctor who does both traditional psychotherapy and hypnotherapy, you’ll be getting two for the price of one.

Always keep your doctor in the loop. Both your doctor and your hypnotist/hypnotherapist have the same goal: to help you.

And two heads are always better than one.

You can check out the Past Life Regression and Hypnosis Directory for a list of hypnotists and hypnotherapists who trained with Brian Weiss. As with any healthcare provider, get references, check credentials. All hypnotists and hypnotherapists are not created nor trained equally.

Where this is energy work, you’ll want someone with whom you can build a rapport. If you’re not feeling a connection, keep looking.

Ask for a free consultation. In my experience, most hypnotists are more than happy to accommodate you.

Just think of what you can accomplish if you get rid of that anxiety.

Best of luck and thanks for reading.
