Hello, and welcome to Jason newland.com. My name is Jason Newland, and this is relaxation, hypnosis for stress, anxiety, and panic attacks. Please only listen when you can safely Close your eyes. And before I go further, I just like to thank Molly, for leaving a testimonial on my website. And today, so thank you very much that was lovely to see. And if anybody else would like to leave a testimonial to say, what you think of what I do, how it's helped, you can just go to my website, Jason Newland, calm and this testimonial page or write a testimonial. Now I was thinking about the content, sometimes when I do these podcasts I mix, I kind of get a little bit of a mixture between the two.
And was thinking about the sleep session, which might be able to move over to the anxiety, like for anxiety and stress.
And so this is going to be a bit of an afterwards and metaphysical is going to be a focus of meditation on because you know, meditation can be something where you gently focus on something. Usually, with Buddhist meditation, it might be focusing on a single point. But you can have a broad meditation you can ever I like the idea of meditation or an idea. So offer, offer some ideas that might be useful.
One of those things is the idea that we have everything that we need already, in order to reduce that anxiety, reduce your stress levels. Swear I'm going where I'm going with this is and a lot of is very obvious. Anyway. So I'm not I'm not making anything new here. I'm also not an expert on
on the subject as such. But we have everything we have oxygen. So oxygens there. We have it already. Apart from those individuals that have got breathing issues, then that's a different situation. But I'm talking about the general population. The majority of the people in the world have oxygen to breathe and are able to breathe. I say the majority and I think that's fair enough. Of course these days. There's a lot of people that can't but the population generally can. At no point do we have to worry about floating off because we have gravity and that might sound like a silly thing to say laws of gravity got to do with anything while trying go a minute without it. And then you see how it's how important is so great that these things are taken care of already for us. Things we don't need to give any thought to be you take one of those things away, you take away oxygen. You take away gravity. We've got sunshine every day of the year, regardless of whether it's cloudy even when it's dark, the sunshine still there. It shines through the moon. So we, you know, we've got sunshine, take that away. You take that away for a second. We're in trouble. We've got rain. Do you know where I'm going with this? Basically, we've got these things that we perhaps just take for granted. Or if flip it over, we moan and complain about or it's too sunny, was not sunny enough or it's raining again, Kamloops rain and again try and go a year without rain. We wouldn't be able to do it. I don't think the planet could last. And I know that that would be an impossible situation because the moisture in the earth is the same amount and it rains I realize that but that's besides the point is these things that we rely on that we don't perhaps give any credit to. And honestly, I can't stand it when it rains sometimes. So annoying. By never complain about gravity. Apart from when, you know perhaps when I was younger, I'd kick a ball in the air and kind of wish you'd go a bit higher. Like in Superman film, we kicked a football and it just goes for miles.
So we have a lot of things already sorted for us that we don't need to think about it I'm just thinking about the things that we worry about those concerns and worries that cause anxiety and stress. Then how many of those things are in as important as gravity and oxygen and water? Those things that it's been on your mind today maybe before you decided to listen to this recording and absorb the changes that naturally occur. What we worried about before we like was on your mind niggling moaning. Just you know. And as I said, I do it myself. So I'm not I'm not judging. I'm the best moaner in the whole planet I am. get me started Dr. Mone. Proper mon but you know, I'm trying I'm working on it. Worry cause almost felt feel like I was born to worry like as my special power. What a crap power to have isn't it was worrying about stuff is worked out as well. Some are working out the other day is the amount of things that we worry about. Like just general humans, all humans generally worry about stuff. It's not a special domain for people that have got stress or anxiety. Generally, people seem to worry doesn't always affect them the way in the same way. And it might not be to the same level. But worrying about stuff. The percentage of the past that we worry about the we can't do anything about this done. can't change it. You can make amends with the people possibly if it's possible to make amends with perhaps. I don't know if you've done wherever I don't know the situation but it's possible from that angle but you can't can't change The past the things we worry about in the future. Basically, that's just us being really, really creative. So the people who worry the most are the most creative people, I think. It doesn't mean that all people are really creative worry. Because that's not the case. Because some people that are really creative, they focus that creativity on building something amazing, whether it's a beautiful life for themselves, or a business, or a boat, or piece of artwork, you know, wherever. But there's a lot of creativity that goes into worrying. So that's something that I think you need to start grasping
that you are a very creative person, very intelligent, you're very creative. Which means you've got a lot of skills there. In fact, you might be one of the most creative people that you know,
he might be the most creative person on the planet, I don't know. But one thing is, it's impossible to have anxiety or panic, and all that stuff without being really, really creative. Because to think about all those different scenarios, that first of all, are never going to happen. But to be that creative, you're basically like a film director. Or a writer, you could write, can imagine, I sometimes thought, if I was able to put onto paper, some of the horrible thoughts I've had in the past, the different scenarios that I thought
might happen. It would equal anything that Stephen King's written. Just from the just the nastiness of it. Yeah, I don't want to focus on that stuff. I want to kind of move away from it. So I don't want to sit there writing it down.
Because, yeah, I don't think that really be helpful for me, but does show that creativity, that imagination, do you have to be able to think up all of these ridiculous scenarios with someone will be just so ridiculous? That would, you know, you're not even going to see it in a movie, it's so far fetched.
But actually, if you did see, the movie might be entertaining. because it'd be original. So if you're writing a movie, or if you're writing a book,
then this ability to think up the most obscure, outlandish, ridiculous scenarios would be an absolute blessing. If you're going to write a book, or if you're going to make a movie, television show, cartoon, wherever, if you're going to be able to put it, use that imagination, and use what comes up from your imagination. She's able to transfer onto a canvas in the form of art, or poetry or song, write a song, use those things from us, you know, there's lots of ways that you could express it. Which means that it's no longer a worry, it's a piece of art which is very different because then out there. It's almost I mentioned about the yesterday about the fast phobia cure is something about lucanus an event from a different angle from outside of the event. You know, we moved from it looks different, feels different. Or when you see it from that different angle, you're no longer emotionally connected to it. And it changes how you feel about that event, so that it no longer troubles you the way it did. And then the phobia or the anxiety connected to it before
disappears. In the same way, if you paint something, put it onto a canvas, it's no longer in your head. So on the canvas, when you look at it a few different ways. First of all, it's on the canvas, so you don't need it to be in your head anymore. Which is why people take photographs
either maybe a birthday cake that was made for them, or the wedding cake or something like that. So they can look at the photographs, and they don't have to remember, or they don't have to rely on their memory. So they can just look back and say, Oh, that was a lovely cake. Can't believe it all by myself. That's why I probably be thinking, I'm gonna have an ice cream cake, if I ever get married. I am and I'm just gonna dive into it, I hit him seriously, I'll have a big massive ice cream cake and literally dive into it. And then you start chucking bits of cake at everyone. Again, it's it's a fantasy, doesn't mean it's real. Doesn't mean it's happened, doesn't mean it's gonna happen. So if I take that literally, it's like, Okay, I'm gonna have a wedding. And they'll have a cake and I'll end up chucking cake everyone on no but then all those people that put in my give me their dry cleaning bills and some like angry and want to punch me in. And that will ruin my my wife, my new wife might be upset. And you know, plus I've got this tuxedo that I got to give back to the, to the shop that I got it from or hide it from. And I don't know it's a slot all those scenarios, given myself stress over some stupid, ridiculous humorous to me idea of what are going to do on your wedding day. That hasn't even happened, not met anyone that I want to get married to, to the likelihood of this ever happening. Although now that I've fought the idea, I do actually want to do it. But for me, I wouldn't care about all the other stuff. I'll probably think about it afterwards, it'd be more of a regret situation that will pass this unit than that, but at the time will probably really enjoy it. Big ice cream cake caused chaos. It's always a wedding. As far as I'm concerned, if you've got 300 people your wedding, you're getting into debt by 20 grand. They deserve to be covered in ice cream. But that's me, that's a baby and silly. So we've got everything outside that we need. Gravity, oxygen, water, I'm gonna think about those things were very lucky. I noticed some parts of the world where water isn't as abundant as it is in most, most places. Or say most places a lot of the Western world. There are some countries that have problems with water and stuff. So but this isn't, you know, I have to generalize when I make these recordings. Otherwise, I spend two hours just explaining one point and trying to encompass everybody from different situations. There's not just what's going on outside what's going on inside your body. Your heart's pumping, you got to do nothing for that to happen.
You have to eat regularly and drink water or some kind of liquid regularly and do some kind of exercise. But it doesn't on its own, you can mentally control your your heart happens on its own
your lungs, breathe the oxygen, and it just happens. And if you think you've got any control over that, try holding your breath,
eventually, you're gonna have to breathe, don't have a choice in it. Your kidneys, your lungs, you know, your liver, all those bits, I'm not going to get on an anatomical, because I don't know that much about all that stuff.
I do know that. So much of it is automatic. If you could say all of it is automatic. As far as the brain, the mind, you know, all the light, all the internal stuff, the arteries, the veins, the stomach, all happening inside, naturally and automatically. Of course, what we put into our body makes a difference. So the food, the drink vitamins, the exercise we do makes a difference on the organs inside. having enough calcium makes difference for the bones and the skeletal system and whatever. And what you read has a difference on your mind, which has a difference on your brain. Because the brains got a lot of plasticity, the brain is continuously growing and changing. And that's something that experts didn't know. In the past. He didn't realize that we're always changing. We're not set, we're not stuck, as stuck as we think we are. How you feel, how you felt yesterday, doesn't have to be how you feel today. And how you feel today doesn't have to be how you feel tomorrow.
And it's reminding yourself of that. reminding yourself that actually, there isn't that much to think about. Compared to what there would be if we had to run all this by ourselves.
Imagine if we had to take mental control over our heart and lungs or kidneys, liver, spleen, spinal cord, all of those connections, we had to consciously be focusing on each one for it to work,
we wouldn't be able to do anything else, we would literally all we could do is just sit there.
And just focus on all those and make sure they're working properly. We'll have no time to worry or stress about anything. We also won't be have any time to do anything. Because if you've got a focus on that you won't be able to talk to anyone. We got to watch television, all we do is focused on that. So how lucky are we that we don't have to? How fortunate away to all that stuff just happens automatically, just like oxygen and the rain, the weather. The sun how lucky we are that we've got gravity. So we don't have to walk around with like huge, massive heavy boots. And, of course no gravity, no oxygen.
God none of that stuff to worry about. They're big things. And that's not putting down the big things that people are worried about. Because you know, there's always going to be something that everyone has things in their life that are really huge at some time in their life, which is unpleasant. It's just part of being here. So that's never gonna change at all, something's always going to come along. And that's just part of being human. It's not pleasant. But why worry about it before it happens? You know, if you've got elderly parents, beside my grandma, my grandmother died five years ago, and she was 94 or 95, something like that. I knew that I was going to lose her. She wasn't very well. I knew that I knew for a long time. But I didn't worry about it. Until she got a bit ill before that, I didn't worry about it. So when she was 90, didn't really think about it. Because logically, I knew not many people to get to that age. Not many people get to 90. And still well, she did. And she was. So I did take it for granted. Like I take oxygen, oxygen, gravity, a body or working hobby, and I took it for granted because I was able to. And perhaps I should have been more grateful. Perhaps that would have should, it's not always a good word is I but but I feel I I gave my gratitude I visited her. And I was grateful actually might not have shown it might not have expressed it perhaps as much as I could have done. But I was grateful that she was here.
So really, in a sense, you can show your gratitude of the oxygen by breathing. I'm especially grateful to oxygen when I've run for about a bus.
That's when I really feel grateful for that oxygen being there. Although sometimes it is people watching I kind of wish that gravity wasn't. So I could float away quickly. But I do the bus would as well wouldn't know actually, I don't know depends how heavy the buses, there's a level isn't there a gravity is gone, where things stay down if they're heavy enough, I suppose. I don't know. See, I don't know enough about it. But we take it for granted. And we worry about things that may be a slightly less important than breathing or our bodies working correctly. The stomach digesting the food. Being able to you know heart pumping, feeling relatively well. Being out, maybe able to walk being able to have a hands we can pick things up being able to see or hear. I don't know everybody has all of those abilities for whatever reason. But you can still you know, we've still got something everybody generally has mostly will have something that they can use to enjoy life with, whether it's their eyes, their ears, whether it's physically.
So when we got all this stuff already hooked, you know, happening automatically. We don't need to worry about because you ask anybody that's gone medical. Anybody that has problem breathing. That's somebody that has got something to worry about. Because that's taken up a lot of their time and their thoughts. These things that we're used to these things that we just take for granted. And I think taking it for granted is okay actually. Because we're supposed to be able to breathe generally. And it's normal for nearly everybody to be able to breathe. Some people have breathing issues,
either early or later in life. And then they get a sense of this thing that perhaps they used to take for granted or get more of a respect diff
and realize that actually, that's something that they're focusing on. So I remember when I, I broke my foot about loudness quite a while ago, quite a few years ago. And my walking was so difficult. I couldn't put any weight on it. But I still had to get about, I had no choice I had to get about as Christmas. So I literally and there was ice on the floor on that, you know, so that made it very interesting. I wasn't thinking about next year, I wasn't thinking about last year. I wasn't thinking about yesterday, I wasn't thinking about what people think of me. I wasn't thinking about any of those concerns that perhaps I would have normally been thinking about. All I was focused on, was getting to my destination without fall in love over or slipping over. And knowing that I only had one good leg to actually maneuver around.
I'm not saying it was a pleasant experience. But it was almost a freeing experience. Because I wasn't concerned about other stuff. And when I've got an injury, I love to tell people about it. Which is believe it's a bit weird, but I broke my wrist worn out of the bath. And it was a talking point for me because I found it hilarious. Not at the moment when it happened if I'm honest. But afterwards, the idea was slipping out of a bath just seemed like some kind of comedy sketch. And then I realized that people would help me with stuff. So someone that I knew saw me carrying shopping, they give me a hand and help me carry it. Sua could take advantage of people. Not I didn't really take advantage but it was off. It was almost quite nice to have people like, Oh, I can help I can help you jsoc and carried out shopping if you want. Oh, this is quite nice, actually. I like carrying stuff. I couldn't carry heavy stuff. So got a food delivery. My neighbor helped me carry this stuff up the stairs. I could have carried it one bag at a time with one hand. But he helped and he pretty much got the whole lot upstairs. And I fought. I wonder how long I can keep this this plaster on my arm for on and off and get away with this fall. But then I'll tell people that I was just I didn't really have a broken wrist. I was just making it up so I could get people to carry stuff for me. And I was having fun with it. And I wasn't thinking about other things I wasn't thinking about next year or last year.
You know, I remember when I was in the hospital with my wrist. And I find that my stepmom said oh, I fell I broke my wrist or fractured or something. This is Oh. She said why you call me? She didn't say that. She said Oh, okay. But I was in such a good mood. Because almost my focus was on that I wasn't thinking about mistakes on made. When I was 25 I wasn't thinking about my bank balance. I wasn't thinking about relationship issues that I may have had in the past. wasn't thinking about worrying about feeling anxious. Wasn't literally wasn't concerned about anything to do with my mind. wasn't thinking about being bipolar, because in that moment, I wasn't. I had a broken wrist. That's what I was that as my label a person with a broken wrist. And I quite liked that label more than some of the other labels I've been given over the years.
And although is in a good mood, I was in a lot of pain. Like a, you know, anyone's had a broken bone, you know, it's very painful. I was in a good mood, like mentally. Because there was a humor of it. Of what happened 10 in the doctor in hospital, yeah, slipped out of the bath, just to see his face. And it was a slow smile. And I know that slipping out the bath isn't a funny thing. Some people you know, I'm not laughing to other people don't slip that pass. I'm just laughing at myself slipping down the bath. And I wasn't thinking about the future, wasn't thinking about the past. wasn't concerned about oxygen wasn't concerned about gravity. Although, at the time, little little lapse of gravity would have been quite nice. Just enough for me to just float, float down to the ground gently, I would have been quite nice. We'll just have some kind of superhero fly in powers, just for one second would have been nice.
So that's what I've been thinking about the natural for natural forces in the world, including inside our own body that don't need our attention. Don't need worrying about don't need anxiety. Although anxiety and stress can have a very negative effects to the body.
Causing illness or co ops. Imagine Everybody knows that. So what could you focus on? What can you focus on? That's different, that's separate. What can you focus on,
takes you out of that? That mind thing where you're, you know, the worrying, the concern, the anxiety, the because let's say, for panic to occur, we have to practice it in our mind. Generally, we have to practice, practice feeling anxious. A lot of practice there, we don't realize we're doing it. But by thinking about it, we're rehearsing it. By thinking about what happened in the past, the party or the last time we was in the supermarket or on a train. We rehearse and for the next time we're in a supermarket or on a train.
It's just a rehearsal. And that's no different to what someone who's really successful does. Someone going on stage in front of the 1000 fans, you know, there might be sitting backstage rehearsing, walking onto the stage, rehearse and feeling confident. Even if they're perhaps not feeling very confident at that time, but they rehearse it. Somebody footballers, sports people, dances in, you name it. You know, there's a whole you know, sports psychology, there's a whole whole thing where teaching people that do sports, in order to rehearse, to imagine to, you know, to prepare and to massage manipulate your mind, but to use your mind and use those special skills that you have the creativity that we talked about the amazing skill of creativity and using that to help yourself to help instead of hinder. So you can use that creativity in your mind to imagine something happening tomorrow. That is wonderful imagining again on the train, whatever situation that you may be
about to do tomorrow, for example, you can imagine feeling wonderful. You can imagine feeling relaxed. We can use your creative mind, to enjoy the day before even arrives. to rehearse feeling good to rehearse feeling and relaxed. Because let's face it, most of the important stuff is already taken care of.
Oxygen, sunshine, rain, water, gravity, your heart pumping, all your internal organs work in automatically, the brain, everything is already taken care of. Which leaves you free to just be creative. and rehearse for feeling good. Rehearse feeling relaxed,
just takes a takes a bit of pressure off doesn't, you realize, oh, there isn't really that much to think about. Not really, the really important stuff is already taken care of.
Because none of that stuff that we're worried about, or that we've been worried about, generally is as important as oxygen and got worried about oxygen being here, there and got worried about our liver, working our kidneys, working, our stomach processing, food, all those things that if they stopped working, then we would have something serious to be focusing on. And most of us are so lucky that we don't have to think about that stuff. I know there are lots of people that do. But most of us don't have to think about that
stuff. Which means we can use our minds to focus on
what we want. Because the basics are taken care of. I want to use the word basics. That's an understatement, isn't it? Oxygen is not a basic thing. It's necessity, take it away, try go about it for a minute or three minutes. You go gonna try and go without gravity for any amount of time. And as soon as the sun stops shining, we stop shining. So there might be basics, but they are so important. And way out shadow, any of our own internal worries about stuff, or regrets. That all just almost disappears. Compared to the really important things I've been able to breathe.
So maybe you can think about tomorrow. And use your creative mind if you don't come out of this with anything other than all of it really, but just if you think
you are really, really creative. Because in order to have experienced in the past those issues that we're focusing on
here, you need to be really, really creative. And you can use that creativity to rehearse a beautiful data more. Regardless of the weather. Regardless of how you physically feel, you can have a beautiful day
which will actually transform how you physically feel and emotionally So do you think back there's been times in your life where you've daydreamed about something coming up, might be a birthday might be a wedding might be a holiday might be went up for a for me, it will be Christmas when I was a child. When I was like an older child, Christmas was brilliant. And I think about it. Sometimes for weeks before. There was one year, I wanted a bike. And I was dreaming, like, I'd be laying in bed, fantasizing about having that bike, and how it would transform my life because I had a paper around that took ages to do. But with a bike, I cut the time, probably by a quarter or third, I don't know half or something. And I just kept daydreaming about it. And I imagine waking up Christmas morning and going down and opening the bike and opening unwrapping the bike. And and that's exactly what happened. And it felt felt really, really good all that time that I was imagining. And even if the bike hadn't been there on that day, yet, admittedly, I would have felt disappointed.
However, I still would have enjoyed the process. So when I was laying in bed, I was drifting off to
sleep, feeling really good. Really positive and was something to look forward to. So that can be a similar activity. Today, maybe when you're lying in bed, thinking about tomorrow, imagining how it's going to be and how you're going to feel, how you're going to behave, how you're going to respond to people, how it's going to be really good and you're going to feel really confident and relaxed. And feel really safe within yourself. Knowing that you are looked after. By nature. You've got oxygen, gravity, the sun, your body, your internal organs, to all operate in your being looked after.
Which means it frees your mind to rehearse, feeling good. feeling relaxed and feeling happy. So I will go now because I've rabbeted on for a long time as usual. Thank you for listening and please remember to be kind to yourself because you deserve to be happy. Lots of love. Bye
