    Beautiful video! Your stepdad sounds like a wise and loving person.
    I have never had anxiety like that but have had constant anxiety all my life that has prevented me from living fully and made me feel comfortable in my own skin.
    Thank you for sharing your story. I am excited for the next video.

    p.s. I found you through a podcast or video with Jordan Bach.

      Hi Catherine!
      Thank you for your kind words about my stepdad ๐Ÿ™‚
      I think your experience is very common… many people have a sub-threshold anxiety that doesn’t erupt into panic but is certainly uncomfortable to live with. I love how ACIM teaches that “there is no order of difficulty in miracles.” That means whether it is “mild” or “severe” anxiety, it can all be healed in an instant.
      And YES – I loved that interview with Jordan! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you for sharing your story, Corinne. I can relate to much of it. I loved that late night phone call with your mom when she assured you, “we will find some help for you with this”. I have struggled my entire life with depression, anxiety, whatever you want to call it… just pain, I guess… and it’s been very debilitating, often for years at a time. I’ve been working with the Course for about 15 years now, and I know exactly what you mean about studying vs. living the Course. I was the worst I’d ever been about a year ago, feeling like I was literally going insane…. and it was at that point that I realized I had to really practice the Course, really practice forgiveness…. not just understand it intellectually. I’m still living in a lot of fear, and there’s a lot of what feels like forward and backward movement, but I am starting to find some peace. I really appreciate the loving way that you communicate… thank you so much for that.

      Hi Kathy – thank you so much for sharing! You’re right… whether it is depression or anxiety it is just pain, and it is the pain of the belief in separation showing up. This pain shows up differently for different people, but we all have it when we believe we are limited to separate bodies. When I stopped using the Course to temporarily feel better, and instead REALLY started looking at the pain WITH Spirit (to allow it to be undone), things began to shift for me. I’m joining you in determination to UNDO pain in all it’s forms. We’re going to that place of peace together. YAY ๐Ÿ™‚

        That’s a great reminder for me…. to stop using the Course to temporarily feel better and to REALLY start to look at the pain with Spirit and allow it to be undone. I think I’ve just been clutching my pain and my small “s” identity so tightly for so long… I hope I’m FINALLY getting sick of it and ready to let it go. Thank you again for your videos and your kindness.

    Hi Corinne. Thank you so much for making these videos. I’m watching with my daughter who has suffered with dreadful anxiety for many years now. This offers her some hope, although, like you, she’s been very resistant to me sharing ACIM with her! We’re looking forward to the next video.
    Love and gratitude, Emma xx

    Corinne,
    Loved this video and all the comments that followed. Anxiety just doesn’t make “sense” is what I am realizing lately. And the Holy Spirit is really showing me that He can not remove that which I believe is real – so my first job is to see where I have insisted that something be true, simply because it’s in my experience.
    I know that the lesson is “only Love is real” for when it is in my Awareness, everything clicks into place effortlessly. I think my issue is a habit of contraction, resistance and avoidance, which I need to look at closely with Spirit. Thank you so much for this series

      This is beautiful Sue! I love what you said: Holy Spirit can’t remove what we cling to as real. We have to have that willingness to see it differently first. Amen!

    I’m really looking forward to the other videos, thank you for sharing your story. I have been studying the course on and off for over a year and it has helped me a lot with my anxiety but it’s still a part of my life. I know and I am willing to dive deeper into the course and find that light within me.

      That willingness to go deeper is all you need. The outcome is guaranteed. And it’s PEACE! ๐Ÿ™‚ Yay! xo

    This is perfect, Corinne. I was on a youtube search for some peace after being presented with anxiety associated with post US presidential news when I discovered the video you published entitled “Trump election, A Course in Miracles, and An Opportunity for Healing”. It spoke to me so clearly. Thank you for publishing it. Then I checked out the link that eventually got this gem sent to my e-mailbox. And I am feeling so very blessed. Just what I need right now. I feel like you are right here in my living room with me waking me up to the truth of my being that the light within me IS “too bright to fail.” The light that I see reflected in you is the same light within me, and I just got a much needed glimpse of it. I am looking forward to Part 2 of this crash course. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you ….. to infinity.
    I love you!

    Thank you Corinne, I loved the video, I too spent a few years of everyday full on anxiety that would not leave me at all. I am meditating every day but am going to look at the course you use to help me even more. I am ready to do whatever it takes to feel free from fear. Thank you for your encouraging words.

    Thank so much Corrine for making this video and reaching out to those who’ve experienced anxiety and debilitating panic and also, those that have simply had fears, who hasn’t?? Your story could be my story told with just a few differing details. I’m really excited and hopeful to be able to connect with you/others who are wanting to heal the anxiety according to ACIM. Having “studied” ACIM for 10 years, I wondered why the anxiety, although much better, was still there in various forms…When you spoke about “living” and “practicing” ACIM, that sure resonated! Time for me to deepen my commitment..
    .I also thought your step father’s words were inspired, and his inspiration to you, and you to all of us, is a precious lesson in love extending…
    After these 3 videos on anxiety, are there continued ways you offer to practice besid s on our own? For example, does your weekly study group on Sunday nights focus on this? Do you have a anxiety type ongoing group, etc? Deep bow to you…

      Hi Kerry!
      So grateful for your beautiful comment. Thank you so much for sharing. We don’t specifically focus on anxiety in the study group (though it does come up at times), but we stay focused on living the principles as deeply as possible. If you haven’t already seen my new podcast, check out “From Anxiety To Love Radio” on iTunes and on my YouTube Channel as well. I started a private “From Anxiety To Love” FB group for us and all are welcome to join: http://www.FromAnxietyToLove.com/group. Plus my book is getting released on Feb. 15, 2018! There will be LOTS of help in there and with the “undoing anxiety” events I am planning surrounding the launch. I hope that helps!! xo

    Hi Corinne, do meditation, breathing, cold therapy and body exercises to feel love in my heart and center my mind so anxiety levels are not so high. I wonder if to make my body feel good then I am just using magic and deceiving myself because course of miracles says that healing takes place only in mind level.

    Reply
    • Corinne Zupko

      That’s a great question, Jan! I think that it comes down to allowing ourselves to be where we are. We believe we’re bodies, and Spirit will meet us where we’re at. So we can do what we feel helps us on the physical level while still giving it all to Spirit. Slowly, as our belief in the separation falls away, awareness of Truth begins to return, and peace and healing comes to our minds because we’re finally ready to allow it in. At that point, the insignificance of the body becomes realized because our identity has shifted into the Truth of who we are – Love.

    Nice video Corinne <3 My anxiety comes int he form of full on sabotaging efforts of action. Second guessing, not being sure, waiting until…when it…then I will… And it also comes in the form of not trusting that the good in my life can last. That it will somehow be taken away.

    I look forward to learning alongside you and thank you.

      Hi Stacy!
      Thank you for sharing. What you describe is so common! As we learn to remove those fear blocks, that trust will come naturally. I, too, am grateful to learn along side you!
      Warmly,

    Powerful, powerful stuff. Learning that I am unconditionally loved is HUGE for me; it literally changes everything when I let that in even a little bit. This past year I’ve become aware of just how deeply asleep in the illusion I’ve been/am. You and your work are more helpful to me than I can ever tell you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

    Thank you for everything that you are doing! I did not experience anxiety when I was younger. Over the past 10 years I have experienced some difficult times and the anxiety has become overwhelming. Sharing your experiences and how the Course has worked for you has helped me in more ways than I can express, and I am only getting started! I look forward to my continuous growth and learning experiences in following your work. Thank you Corinne!

    Hi Corinne! Iโ€™m reading your book, listening to your podcasts and youtube, and diving in head first into the Course. You are an amazing story teller and your voice on your meditations calms me down when Iโ€™m anxious. I have had my texts since 1984 but never understood them and would try from time to time to read them. After the first time of hearing your podcast, I was drawn to them again and this time the Course is easier to understand. I guess itโ€™s true that when the student is ready, the teacher will appear. Thank you for appearing, Corinne. My 26 yr old daughter has panic and severe anxiety and PTSD. Iโ€™m hoping at some point she will also take her fingers out of her ears and hear me when I talk about the Course. I am gifting her your book. Thank you again! โ˜บ๏ธ
