The Fear and Anxiety Solution: A Breakthrough Process for Healing and Empowerment with Your Subconscious Mind

The Fear and Anxiety Solution

In episode 66 of Fresh Tracks I speak with Dr. Friedemann Schaub about strategies for overcoming fear and anxiety. His discoveries about fear and anxiety as a medical doctor, and his realization of the mind, body spirit connection, led him to the ground-breaking teachings he shares with us today. In this weeks show we discuss what can we learn from our fear and anxiety patterns and how that may impact our ability to cut Fresh Tracks. Dr. Schaub teaches us how to understand, direct and utilize the subconscious mind to create wholeness and health and work through our fear and anxiety rather than allowing it to run our lives.

Dr. Schaub helps us understand the root causes and deeper meanings of our fear and anxiety. Understanding this allows us to release the emotional blocks from our past, be our true selves, and ultimately more easily cut Fresh Tracks in our lives. Tips for giving our fear and anxiety a name and recognizing where it comes from can help us break up unsupportive patterns in our life. Dr. Schaub also shares that addressing fear and anxiety at its roots has a huge benefit because it allows you to more deeply tap into your true self and realize your true potential.

The Enneagram as a tool for Getting to Know Yourself

In episode 64 of Fresh Tracks I speak with Beatrice Chestnut of The Chestnut Group about the Enneagram. The Enneagram is an ancient tool that shows where your focus of attention goes. When used correctly, the Enneagram can be used to get to know yourself, allowing you to create Fresh Tracks from a place of strength. Beatrice shares that understanding the habitual patterns of your personality and where your attention goes can be essential to your personal growth and development. Your focus of attention is often a coping strategy and understanding where it goes, as well as what you avoid focusing on, will help you become a better leader of yourself.

Getting to know aspects of yourself that you can’t see is important to understanding where you are now in life. Can you identify what have you been doing that works and what have you been doing that isn’t working? The Enneagram helps in identifying what motivates you and highlights your blind spots. It can also assist in identifying tools you might add to your toolkit to more easily accomplish your goals.
