So I have been an acupuncturist for about 16 years now and I end up hearing a lot about what's going on with people on a pretty deep level--mostly because I ask pretty deep questions. For the past year or so, I have had an extremely high number of patients complain about anxiety. These are people that if I met them in any other venue I would never in a million years guess that they were dealing with this level of emotional discomfort. I, myself, have suffered from anxiety and I find it the most debilitating and life ruining feeling--I just hate it. So what's the deal? Why are so many of us experiencing this? Well, I've been thinking about this and trying to put my finger on it so bear with me. Today I came up with the thesis that it is Mother Energy that is missing. Our culture has become a distant father that is ever satisfied with us no matter what we do--no matter what we achieve, it is never enough. Zero feeling of unconditional love. We can't live this way, hence the skyrocketing suicide rates and depression and most of all, ANXIETY. This is not how it's supposed to be. We are not getting enough mother energy so, in turn, we are not able to give it. It goes around and around spiraling down into more and more despair and violence. How do we turn this around? I am seeking an answer.
What is up with all of this ANXIETY??
