Unknown anxiety and fear overpowering the mind

There are times when many of us feel nervous without any reason. Unknown anxiety overpowers us. We are unable to remain calm. We imagine things and bring with it fear and worry. There will be uneasiness in stomach and our normal breathing pattern will be disturbed.

The main reason for this problem is that we are not in control of our mind. We are allowing mind to take control of us. We are believing the stories created by the mind. These stories often are about something untoward going to happen in the future.

In such situation, breathe properly. Relax. Tell the mind that am not going to fall for this.

Overpower the mind by stating that there is nothing to worry about as all that is here is the Supreme Truth.

Chant any mantra you know like ‘Om Namah Shivaya’ or ‘Om Namo Vasudevaya.’

Take the mind away from fearful thoughts and fix it on our personal deity.

Do not allow the mind to wander.

Always have a simple and easy translation of Bhagavad Gita. Read the chapter that you like most.

All this unknown anxiety and fear will disappear.
