New understanding
I was always called a worry-wart growing up and I later learned that it was my anxiety displaying its self at a very young age. Listening to this meditation was so eye-opening. Now I realize my anxiety is still based in a place that is worried about the people I love and what may potentially happen in the future.

Anxiety is normal
Anxiety is normal but through techniques such as breathing, mind power and focusing on the NOW I can overcome and settle it.

Caring and loving myself
I've never heard a take on anxiety like this before. The fact that I don't feel loved is because I don't love myself. Deep down, I don't honor myself. However I am s person that deeply cares and I want to learn how to honor this in myself. Sometimes I shrug it away because it's not very masculine being this way, having such a deep care.

Need for love
Understanding that anxiety stems from the need or desire to be loved is a new concept for me, but totally makes sense. What a brilliant insight! It makes sense how children, who have a very acute awareness of love, can struggle with anxiety.

My Anxiety means I care
This is true. I push myself and get stressed because I want to do everything right. Because If I don't then I am a failure. That is why I push myself so hard. But I want to make it stop. This anxiety is wearing me out

I care and want to be loved
The anxiety I cause upon myself is because I want to be loved and I care so much that I make myself anxious when really I should be grateful I have something I care about so much.

New perspective on my anxiety
This meditation is one of the best that I could have come across. I never looked at my anxiety as a strength. The characteristics given to something I struggle with will really help me going forward. Thank you 💜

Being a caring person
This is the best meditation yet! It has helped me learn where my anxiety comes from and that it isn’t a bad thing to be a caring person. Accepting that’s where it comes from and acknowledging that I just want to be loved by myself and others.

My anxiety is at an all time high! I never thought anxiety would have anything with wanting to be loved. I do want that.

First meditation
Anxiety comes from a place of wanting to be loved and cared for by others because I care too much. I need to know that I’m fully loved and cared for by god, but also praise him for the fact that this caring Feature of me has make me who I am today and impacts my friendships/relationships in a positive way!

David
The source
I learned in today’s session the connection between my anxiety and my desire for everyone around me to be happy. My intentions have always been for everyone around me to be happy and I think over the past year that desire has grown so much with the stress and struggles in my immediate family circle and my desire to always hold the burden for them has manifested into the anxiety I feel today. Realizing that brought a sudden rush of relief.

It's okay....
It's okay to feel anxious, everything has a purpose and my anxiety serves a purpose, even if I'm not sure what it is right now. That's okay. It's okay to feel anxious, I don't need to stress about being anxious, just be aware I'm feeling it.

Anxiety Caring Connection
I learned that anxiety stems from the fact that we care deeply about things in life, and it’s important to honor that. Honestly found it kind of challenging to really get into this meditation and not get distracted, but I suppose it’s important to honor that because it’s the reality of the situation, just as it’s important to honor anxiety, even though it’s not the most comfortable or uplifting thing to experience.

Anxiety and Love
All of us need to be loved. I had never thought about that need being so connected to anxiety. It's sad, heartbreaking really, that our world today is so filled with anxious people. God loves us dearly. I will bask in THAT much more I hope everyone will.

The reason why I worry so much is because I care
I always knew that I cared so much about things but I did not realize that I worry because I care. I feel like somewhere along the way my anxiety took over and made me forget that. I think that I will be able to use anxiety as a powerful weapon positively instead of negatively.

To be loved
I learned that anxiety comes from deep within myself. It is innocent. It is pure. I shouldn’t be mad at myself for it. I shouldn’t scold myself for it. I should honor the innocence and the deep desire to be loved and let it be at that. Pressing on it too much is unhelpful.

Being the new year and all, I decided that I will connect more to myself and help myself become less stressed by being better able to deal with stress and anxiety. This meditation really starts the new year off right since it explains the mindset you should look at anxiety with. It explains how you should look at anxiety as proof that you care, which is a strength and never something you should think of as a weakness. Caring is a natural thing, therefore the feeling of being anxious is okay. Being anxious is not something you should ever beat yourself up about, it is something you should honor, as it is proof that you truly care.

anxiety, you are too much of an enemy rather than a friend. i cannot have too much of you in my life. i will now try to control the grasp you have on me. i will now strive to live with my head up high, not down low, because i am stronger than this. i am much stronger than you. one day, i will look back and bid you goodbye. it is still now a process, but i am growing.

Anxiety
I learned that I don’t need to be afraid or curious as to why I am experiencing anxiety as it is all down to a human need that we all share. I will refer to my anxiousness in a different light now, and instead of being afraid of it, I will reflect on how much I truly care on the stimulus that has triggered the anxiety.

Honoring Feelings
I had been feeling deeply anxious as a result of interactions I had with loved ones. I felt my boundaries weren’t being respected and taken for granted. This meditation allowed me to see the anxiety I was feeling in a different light. I felt the feelings without resisting them and because I learned anxiety is rooted in my need to feel connected to others I could better understand how to improve my interactions and ask for what I need in a calm way rather than out of anger and resentment.

my anxiety stems from me
i learned that my anxiety stems from my want to be loved. i feel like i try to suppress that feeling and that emotional response all the time but overall i just want to be loved and accepted by people. and i also just care. i care so much sometimes i don’t know how to handle i.t so i just don’t respond. i am one of those people who seem as if they have no real emotions but in reality i probably feel and care the most.

It makes sense
I do care. I care deeply. My anxiety is a result of me caring and wanting to protect. I cannot control everything and I need to have more faith.
J

We Care a lot
Maybe I wouldn’t be as anxious if I didn’t care as much. That rings true for me with so many of today’s issues. It would be healthier if I picked less battles. I need to put my own oxygen mask on by fighting more for myself.

To not be afraid of my anxiety.
Aprendi que sentir me ansiosa não é uma coisa má. Só preciso de respirar, e deixa entrar em mim... passar por mim e seguir viagem. “Ansiedade é o sinal de que nos importamos. De que queremos conectar connosco mesmos.” É isto que quero fazer. Conectar comigo mesma. Perceber me. E mais tarde, aceitar me. 🍃🦋

Understanding Anxiety
We always aim to cure our anxiety and try to make it go away. But now I see how anxiety doesn't need to be cured. It's part of who we are; it's part of how special we are. We love and care deeply, that's where anxiety comes. Because we empathetic and caring towards others.

Poor day
I had hoped that a nice evening session here at Aura might help me cope with this bad day I just spent feeling sad and anxious. My body is deteriorating lately, and it’s causing me a lot of anxiety. I thought that after I had my stroke and came out of it with such light effects on my body that I would be able to just move on with my life...however, my left arm has started to exhibit the same “dead””tingling” sensation that my left leg has. I’m awaiting a referral to a neurologist currently, with the hope that a specialist will be able to help me!

Troubles
I’ve been plagued with troubles here at Aura lately. This is the first meditation session I’ve gotten to actually play in about a week! Listened because several of my Aura clan members have enjoyed this experience, but it did little for me this Mother’s Day evening😪 I could not afford to do much of anything for my wife today...she knows that I love her beyond belief, but it would have been nice to be able to afford to do something special with her this Mother’s Day!😪 I’m so tired of not having the resources I want to have! Of feeling like I’m unable to take care of my wife and kids! It makes me miserable and depressed all the time. I’ve asked the state department of Rehabilitation to find me SOME work, ANY work, which will give me even a little actual income...I’ll find out if they’ve been able to locate anything for me at the end of the month... So happy Mother’s Day to any Aura moms reading this! You all make the world go ‘round!

Anxiety Connection
I am getting anxiety because I care deeply about my children. I just want them to be healthy. I want my ex to stop trying to break my connections with them by interfering in my relationships with them. I want to feel love and connection with my children. I want them to know that they are cared for and loved unconditionally. They should not have to worry about adult things. I want them to be able to be children and heal from their trauma. I am thankful to be able to recognize my anxiety as a strength that shows my deep caring.

Finding that stillness was kind of unnerving it was like trying to stop a 100mph freight train.
I found that I could feel my stress level by focusing on the stillness. Its a lot of stress.

Anxiety can strike at any time.
Today I learned that anxiety is a natural feeling that will pass, but also that it follows certain patterns. For me, I tend to get anxious in the evening; I don't know why, but just realizing that has made me pause around this time of day to meditate and center myself. This meditation gave me a new perspective on my anxiety, and I feel ready to accomplish a goal now.

my cat (who is 2 years old) got really sick tonight at 3am and i had to call the all night vet to come and he was sedated and a procedure was made on him and he’s still pretty groggy and i’m really scared cause it could have killed him but the vet told me it was good that i acted so quickly but now i had to but him in his “cage” for the rest of the night and i have to bring him to the vet first thing in the morning... i’m really anxious right now and i don’t know if i’m gonna get a few hours of sleep before i go but i care sooo much about him and it makes me so sad to see him like this... i just really needed this practice and i guess it did calm me a little...

Bit controversial
I found it soothing mainly because of her voice. However, that sentence "I just want to feel loved" - that just made my anxiety level rise. I know, it's a different perspective, and that's great if it helps the majority of people. But as for me, I already know that my anxiety comes from my constant wanting to be loved and to share love... I don't know, I just wanted to put it out there - didn't calm me unfortunately. :(

Day 7
My anxiety is a result of caring. And sometimes caring about things I cannot control. It is beneficial to separate my self and gain perspectives on my stress and anxiety throughout the day and week. To set it aside for a little while and come back to it later.

Good for anxiety
I learned that anxiety is just a form of wanting to be loved and it is caring. I've never heard that before. It's a completely new perspective for me and I like it. I have PTSD from being abused by my parents and other things that happened to me when I was younger. I did always thought it was caused by that. And I think in a roundabout way it is. We all just want to be loved and cared for.

This reinforced the idea that wanting to be loved can fuel anxiety. I often over think what friends and colleagues actually think of me which is not a healthy thing to do if it becomes too much.

Anxiety an innocent emotion, at its root
Anxiety comes from a desire to be loved. Thinking about this, it also follows that we are bound to love others, as we learn to love and honor our selves and our desire to be loved. And love is no zero-sum phenomenon - actually, the more love we give, we fill our well with more to give, by the very act of giving. It’s a paradox - by emptying we are filled. ❤️

Love being anxious
Anxiety stems from our need to be loved... great take on the lengths one will go for love. We care so much, we create anxious thoughts and feelings. Valuable message.

Anxiety
I learned that anxiety stems from the place of caring about oneself or ones beliefs. It is because we care so much that we become anxious. I connected to the statement that we just want to be loved. I thought of Mom. She was so good at making me feel loved and cared for so much. Oh how I miss her. 11 years since she passed and I think of her often and miss her to the depths of my soul. She is the only her person who made Me geeked loved always. There was never any doubt. I don’t think I can think of anyone else who made me feel that way.

This meditation focuses on the positive aspects of anxiety. It encourages an interesting perspective of honoring anxiety as a sign of a person’s deep caring and compassion instead of viewing anxiety in a negative light and trying to rid oneself of it.

Reframing...
I learned that by reframing Anxiety as a ‘gift’, a result of Caring so much, and then honoring it instead of dismissing it, we can turn it into a more useful feeling! Think of it as Mother Nature or God is trying to get your attention to tell you something, so listen up!! Some people fret so much and actually worry about their anxiety (instead of just ‘feeling’ it for its 90 second lifespan. learning from it & letting it pass on) that they often end up on some kind of medication for it. Unfortunately, this masks the true reason they are feeling anxious and artificially blocking nature will cause worse things to happen. Either she will try harder to get her message thru to that person or God will pick another person to connect with. So the next time you feel anxious, reframe it as an important message from God or Mother Nature and go inside to hear what they have to tell you. Write it down, study it, make changes if necessary and maybe be bold enough to tell others about it. After all, you were the Chosen One to receive it. Honor your anxiety instead of worrying about it! ❤️🙏🍀

I was feeling stressed
I learned that I have to love my self and that I care more then I want to, and that’s good; I don’t have to drive it away but just let it in and love it and it will love me and we can have a positive life without feeling that guilt and that hurt anymore.

Recognition
I’ve been dealing with mild anxiety since about 2017 when I was getting ready to graduate college. A lot was going on and it honestly was one of my worst years as a whole. One thing that stuck out to me was about being anxious because I care. Also anxiety coming out of wanting love and connection. I still have to work on it, even if it’s just starting with loving myself.

It was three minutes of sheer relaxation and pleasure.
I was reminded that caring to much although can cause stress needs to be “Honored “

Honoring the emotion of anxiety
I really enjoyed this one. It is calming and teaches our goal is not to simply push anxiety away but to honor the emotion. It talks about how anxiety is a very innocent emotion and stems from the strong desire to be loved. It comes to you because of how deeply you care and this deep caring should be viewed as a strength, not a weakness to be fixed or solved.

I do not “honor” emotions. That is irrational and illogical. Emotions are recognized and a choice is made to accept them or not.

Good insight into the fact that anxiety comes from caring deeply, to be loved and connected. Honor anxiety. Good reflection because my instinct is to always drive out anxiety, or at least try not to give in to it, could not find a way to be at peace with it.

Anxiety is care
I often see other people walking around who seemingly have no anxiety and can’t understand how that’s possible. But this helped me see that in relation to those people, I care a whole heck of a lot...thus the greater anxiety. So that’s a good thing. Love myself for caring so much. Allow it to turn into something good.

Wow how wonderful to learn that my anxiety is just not some weird reaction it’s a reaction letting me know that I care and just want to connect with people and that explains so much of her I’ve been feeling for so long and knowing that it’s caused by you wanting to hit that rather than freaking out is amazing.

Caring
Yes, I am definitely anxious about things I care about. But I feel most of my anxiety comes from worrying about how I am influencing what I care about. Am I making the situation better or worse? For me, caring about something or someone makes me want to do something about it. The anxiety or worry is concern that, in attempting to help, I may actually hurt.

Learning to Appreciate Anxiety
I have been really anxious lately and it’s been killing me inside because I am stuck at a crossroads between making others happy and taking care of myself. I have always been able to do both pretty well, but recently since i’ve started grad school I do not have enough hours in the day to devote my energy to others as much as I usually do or want to.. I talked to my mom yesterday about sacrificing the energy I put into others to focus on myself during these last 2 semesters of school and the words that she spoke to me that impacted me the most were “I fully support any decision you make, especially if it’s involving your mental health.” And those words, coming from the person I care about & love the most made me feel at ease.. I feel as if my happiness depends too much on satisfying others that i forget to satisfy myself.. Everyday I wake up in a neutral state of being (i’m never too down on myself I like to live by that philosophy)—but after completing these Aura exercises it brings me to a place of positivity because it helps be understand that taking care of myself, mentally and emotionally, should be one my top priorities. However, I am still not where I want to be emotionally or mentally. I feel that constant reminders that I am feeling the way i’m feeling because I care about my future so much and that i should not feel bad when putting myself first, may bring me to that place of satisfaction. I know this is a hefty post but I kind of use this app as my journal and I appreciate everyone that takes their time to read my entries <3

Self awareness is a blessing
My anxiety is a direct result of my lack of action in self care. If I neglect myself and the things in my life that I know make me happy and healthy, self will run riot, my character defects rear their ugly head and deep down I feel guilty. That guilt manifests itself in the form of anxiety. Prayer, meditation, exercise and connection with others is the key to my serenity and peaceful existence. Grateful to have learned the skill of self reflection and mindfulness to pin point my sources of anxiety. Now ACTION is the cure.

Acknowledgement
To be able to acknowledge and accept my anxieties in a calming manner was new to me, as was the insight as to WHY I have anxiety. I have had some counselling in the past and it was put down to me being a perfectionist and we never really figured out why that was as no parental pressure etc, all of my own making/doing. But here through this simple meditation being told that anxieties are from us caring so much and the deep desire just to be loved it made sense deep in my being. That I am a spiritual being and I just want to love and be loved the way that I am. I will definitely be coming back to this one. Thank you 🙏

Anxiety lives in my stomach
The root chakra area, foundation of what it is to be alive in a body. I’m reminded of Suzuki’s “beginner mind,” always returning to the foundation.

I never connected the need to be loved and anxiety before. Makes sense to me and makes it easier to honor that need and see my anxiety in a new light.

Anxious
that having Anxiety isn’t a bad thing at all. I thought it meant that a worry to much but I just care about connecting with myself and others. When I say others I mean the people I love because I don’t care to connect with everyone!

I'm Not Alone
that my anxiety is my need to feel connected. And more importantly, after reading replies by others, I am NOT alone, you understand. Of course, I knew that a lot of people suffer from anxiety, however it doesn't compare to the warmth I felt while reading your responses - Thanks. Let's have a good day..... La'L (Lai'el)

I learned that....its okay to say sorry, people have phobias about eating and drinking after others, that I should communicate better, and that its okay to have anxiety and I should honor that.

Understanding
I learned that its ok to feel weak. To need someone from others. To want to feel wanted. To allow yourself that vulnerability.

A profound insight...
That behind the curtain of anxiety is caring...this connection offers me understanding of myself and some other very difficult people in my life. Allows for more compassion and a good reason to acknowledge the anxieties vs wanting to just get rid of them.

Anxiety=caring
I learned that having anxiety is a reflection of the caring aspect of ourselves. This caring aspect is desirous of connection to ourselves and/or to others. This desire ultimately is to feel loved. This revelation leads me to more fully thinks about not self-flagellating when I feel anxiety but rather see it for the gift of reflection it brings.

Seeing anxiety as a bad way to caring about myself is a thing that i've never questioned.
I perceive anxiety as a harmful way to care about myself. It's like self caring alert and punishment, based in fear, hate,hopelessness and despair. Understanding that feeling makes me want to change it to a more compassionate way to care about yourself. Is a lot better to change that to caring about myself with love, compassion and compression, giving less power to my old way of caring aggressively with violence, fear and great guilt. It's time to make the things better, doing small tasks, talking to myself in a kind way. It's time to doing them because i love myself and want to be more happy, not to fulfill the expectations of others, specially my parents. It's time to help myself and make the things better. I won't let the rage, fear and guilt to take control of my life again I LOVE MYSELF

Realisation
I learned also that everything else in my life is going great that my mind is looking for a problem to feel a challenge every now and then.

Heslie
Be best
I learned that I am anxious because I care and caring about something means that it is important. I want to leave a legacy behind. When I leave my university I want people to say "Heslie did a really great job". I don't want to be mediocre. That is what makes me who I am. I want to be the best I can be. I don't know if that is what I should have taken away, but I am inspired rather than anxious about the work I have to do today.

My thoughts
I’ve learned that I can not let my thoughts predict my future. I’ve also learned that I care so much about what one person thinks that I have been becoming anxious to fail unintentionally in front of them.

Calming Anxiety
Basis: Anxiety stems from “I just want to be loved” !!! MJ’s Tarot reading today states that he is coming back to manipulate me more ~ He has destroyed the hearts of his family and I know now that I can’t protect everyone anymore!!! I can only protect myself- he is not in the vibration to shine light for my higher good!!! He has been for the last 35 years “ a player/ narcissist / and master manipulator ” and always will be” a liar, cheat and all the above. Do not fall for the smooth talk and charismatic deceit that he will bring with him!!!!

Anxiety meaning
I learned that anxiety happens because I deeply care about the situation. I realize that I just want to be loved, which is why I care so much. I truly want it to happen so I worry about the possibility that it will fail. I have been blessed in my life. Two beautiful children, one of each. To have them healthy their whole lives and well. To have the life experiences that broadened my thoughts about love and life. I am good to others. I am a blessing to others.
