Is Social Anxiety Curable? | Cure Social Anxiety, Naturally
Is This Novel Natural Remedy the Miracle That Social Anxiety Sufferers Have Been Waiting For? Is Social Anxiety Curable?
I know. When you read the words, “Is social anxiety curable”, you may have allowed yourself a twinge of hope, despite the many times your hope has been deflated, if you are a sufferer of this life-paralyzing condition.
Then, when I added the word, “simple”, a wall likely went up like a shield over your heart. In fact, I might be wise to remove the simple part, for the sake of not scaring away the more jaded of potential readers who have long suffered from social anxiety. And I don’t blame them. If you have read my earlier article on social anxiety, you will know that I can very much relate. Do I have social anxiety syndrome? Well, I have come quite a ways over the years, trying different methods and techniques, but there is a roadblock at a certain point that has proven impossible to get past.
And now I understand what the roadblock actually is, and it seems that there is a way to completely remove this roadblock.

Okay, let’s get on with it.
Can You Cure Social Anxiety, Naturally?
Q: Hi, Sky. Thank you again for lending some of your time to us.
The title of this will be Is Social Anxiety Curable?
Have I misled folks with the title? Is social anxiety curable?
First off, please tell us a bit about yourself, including how you came to discover this treatment.
A: Well, first off, I’d like to thank you for having me on, Craig.
My name is Sky Zelaya and I’ve been interested in Herbology since I was young.
However, the more I looked at the healing power of flower essences the more I understood how effective they are in balancing out a person’s emotions. And to be clear, when I talk about flower essences, I’m not referring to “essential oils,” which are two completely different things.
Of course, the more balanced a person’s emotions are, the better equipped they are to handle their life, including their personal and romantic relationships.
When I first began looking into the different healing effects of flower essences, I realized that many people in the world were suffering from social anxiety disorder or SAD, and that there were no safe, natural products available for these people. The only alternatives that were on offer were dangerous and addictive pharmaceutical
Then I thought, “Maybe I should focus in on helping these people overcome their social anxiety.” But, that’s much easier said than done, right?
Anyway, I began to research the topic and discovered that the general consensus among mental health professionals is that SAD has its roots in childhood trauma.
At that time, most of these professionals were prescribing expensive, addictive drugs to their patients, along with long-drawn-out costly therapies, which I believe are, at best, very crude and antiquated.
As I see it, these professionals fail to see (and therefore adequately address), the core issue underlying SAD, which is not simply childhood trauma, but instead, the unconscious or subconscious mind where this trauma is stored!
That is why many of the psychological techniques that health professionals use to assist their SAD patients (including positive self-talk and self-affirmations), are largely ineffective.
So, what works then?
Well, as most people know, all plants have natural resonant frequencies that are specific to each plant and contains the energetic imprint of that specific plant’s life force.
These resonant frequencies or energetic imprints can affect gentle yet powerful emotional transformations in a patient’s mental-emotional health and well-being.
Flower essences work predominantly in the realm of one’s emotions, notions, attitudes, and beliefs, which can exert a powerful influence on one’s health, well-being, and happiness.
These essences impart a profound harmonizing and balancing affect—similar to laying down a new harmonic program or “life blueprint” over the aberrant terrain of the unconscious mind—thus overwriting and/or erasing childhood trauma.
When a person is free of childhood trauma, including the memory of said trauma, they are essentially free from the prison of their past.
Going through this effortless process, in many cases, results in a person’s SAD symptoms being greatly improved or permanently eradicated.
The way I see it is that the unconscious mind is the repository of negative emotions, buried pain, aberrant thoughts, deeply held false beliefs, old stories, twisted notions, destructive behavior patterns, and knee-jerk reactions to life.
These base patterns or “emotional imprints” arise from the influence of our family, ancestors, culture, and experiences from before birth until adulthood.
Unbeknownst to most people, these unconscious patterns or negative programs are continually operating in the background of our lives, causing us to behave, feel, think, and believe what we do.
Thus, childhood trauma—if not dealt with—will cause many people to unconsciously lose sight of their true selves, resulting in them feeling as if they had lost their direction in life.
Without realizing it, their lives will be hopelessly steered in the direction of their formed notions and beliefs, instead of being consciously self-directed.
Each traumatic childhood experience causes a “fracture” or “split” in a child’s otherwise healthy emotional state. As children, these splits (emotional fragments or negative memory imprints), served as an important emotional survival-coping mechanism. However, for most adults, they no longer serve any usefulness. Instead, these splits unconsciously chain us to our past.
The trauma-induced emotional pain that we felt in childhood was unconsciously recorded, embedded, and stored in both the body’s musculature (as tension), and in the unconscious mind as crystallized (frozen) informational, energetic imprints, notions, beliefs, and emotions.
Although these emotional splits occurred early on in life, they tend to color, influence, and dictate every waking minute of a person’s adult life, especially their social life.
If these imprints could be overwritten or erased, they’d no longer be able to influence a person’s conscious mind, thinking, feelings, or emotions, including but not limited to any and all symptoms associated with SAD.
Without these negative imprints, people would finally be free to express their true, authentic, sincere, genuine, and totally real selves.
Since the biochemical imbalances found in SAD appear to be have their roots in childhood trauma, a purely biochemical approach will not cure SAD, because it does not deal with the source of the problem, which is the unconscious mind: the repository of trauma-laden feelings, thoughts, emotions, notions, images, sounds, and memories.
Think about it…
If you erase the trauma stored in a person’s unconscious mind, wouldn’t you in effect be able to erase the memory of this said trauma?
And that’s how simple it is to eradicate social anxiety disorder!
“Do I Have Social Anxiety Disorder?”
Reader: If you have never actually been “diagnosed” with social anxiety disorder (and are not thinking of somebody you know), and have read this far, I would guess that you may have at one time or another had the thought, “Do I have social anxiety disorder?”
Have you ever asked yourself, “Why do I feel so uncomfortable around strangers and why is it so difficult to just be myself?” Or, “Why do I feel awkward, self-conscious, and fearful in social settings?”
If you’ve ever pondered these questions, it’s possible that you’re suffering from social anxiety disorder or SAD!
Q: So, what is social anxiety disorder? Maybe you can answer that question for us now, Sky.
A: Sure, I’d be happy to, Craig.
Q: Also, how many people would you estimate suffer from social anxiety, to the degree that they’d consider it socially debilitating?”
A: First of all, people with social anxiety disorder are not alone. In fact, it’s one of the most common forms of mental illness in the world.
Well, as I had previously mentioned, about 15% of the U.S. population is suffering from social anxiety disorder or SAD.
Two very common symptoms of SAD are: a constant fear of being put in situations in which one may be negatively judged by others, or one may fret about inadvertently embarrassing or humiliating themselves.
Social anxiety sufferers also have an ever-present fear of talking to strangers. They fear that others will notice that they look anxious and self-conscious, or that others will see that they’re blushing, sweating, trembling, or have a shaky voice…. causing the person with SAD endless embarrassment.
Of course it’s easy to see how all of this could link back to childhood trauma.
I believe most people have had one or more parents, siblings, or teachers intentionally embarrass them in front of others. Thus, they might develop a deep sense of shame and embarrassment about themselves… of being inadequate or lacking in some positive human quality that everyone else seems to have, except them. Thus, they make a point of avoiding situations in which they might become the center of attention.
They also suffer from anxiety in anticipation of a feared activity, such as attending a social gathering or participating in a sports event.
“Do I Have Imposter Syndrome?”
They may experience non-stop repetitive thoughts, which they can’t seem to break free from. They may also experience what is commonly referred to as “impostor syndrome,” in the sense that they believe that they’re not being real or genuine with others–because they don’t actually know who they are.
Since they feel fractured in many different ways, they find it difficult to have a clear sense of themselves, of who they really are.
They often feel like a phony and think that others can easily see through their fake persona.
This is what impostor syndrome looks like.
So, if you said, “Hey Paul, you need to be strong… you need to just be yourself!” they would find it near-impossible to do.
It’s not in their repertoire to go from feeling insecure to feeling imbued with personal power. They might tell you: “Just how do you expect me to feel strong when I actually feel weak? And even if I could feel strong, I’d know inside that I was just faking it!”
So this is a real serious issue we’re dealing with here.
Also, SAD sufferers have a tendency to rehearse themselves, that is, they play out a host of possible scenarios in their head before talking to others. Why do they do that? Because they want to avoid appearing awkward or saying something dumb. So, they run everything through their head, first, virtually every conversation!
For example: “If I ask Jane if she thinks it’s fair for fully biological males to compete in all-female sport events, and she answers me, what should I say next? Then what might she say? Then what might I say, etc.”
This is some of the never-ending mind chatter that social anxiety sufferers have to deal with. It’s really nerve-wracking!
And since they spend so much time in their heads, SAD sufferers find it hard to live in the present moment, especially in social settings. They often report feeling drained and tired after being around people and can’t wait to return to the “safety” of their home–so that they can “exhale” and just be themselves.
They also tend to expect the worst possible outcome in any given social situation. Like at a party they might think: “What if I walk across the room and spill my drink? People will ridicule me and think I’m a fool!”
They always think people are judging them; they’re always in their heads. And that’s why it’s so exhausting for people with social anxiety disorder to just go out and casually mingle with people.
People with SAD spend a lot of time calculating what others might feel towards them. So in a certain sense–and I know this might sound crazy–but social anxiety is a pretty selfish, self-centered, mental-emotional state. Think about it. Everything is always about YOU, everything revolves around YOU. It’s all about how you’re being perceived or how others are judging you.
What Is Bulletproof Confidence?
When you don’t have social anxiety you’ll find that you tend to be more “other” orientated, instead of “self” orientated. Your world opens up to others without fear, self-consciousness, or self-judgment.
Your previous ever-vigilant focus on yourself simply stops. You’re not thinking about what others are thinking about you, because, in a word, you don’t care.
You truly develop a sense of bullet proof confidence. And what is bulletproof confidence?
Sounds like the stuff comic books are made of, right?
Well, actually, bullet proof confidence is an unmistakable feeling of self-worth and self-reliance of knowing who you are, and of being able to boldly and confidently present yourself to the world without apology, guilt, embarrassment, self-judgment, shame, self-consciousness, or fear.
Q: “Is there any other thing you would like to add, Sky?”
When you know who you are, you’ll find that you’ll be genuine and authentic with yourself and others.
You’ll be yourself in social settings without a hint of fear, pretentiousness, nervousness, self-consciousness, show-off mentality, or the desire to appease and impress others.
You will also be freed from the prison of your past, including childhood trauma and the memory of said trauma.
You’ll stop seeking the praise and approval of others, including their false flattery.
You’ll always know what is essential in your life, or in other words, you’ll always know what is true.
You’ll be spontaneous, light of heart, and comfortable being the person you are, in spite of your many foibles.
You’ll always have the courage and boldness to be yourself without apology, embarrassment, guilt, or shame.
You’ll no longer feel the need to justify yourself to others, including your motives, thoughts, feelings, opinions, or actions.
You will no longer question your own self-worth or value.
You’ll more fully appreciate and cherish who you are, thus you’ll won’t easily be confused by others’ opinion of you.
You’ll be more responsible to yourself and others.
You will stop apologizing or being ashamed for who you are.
You will be free from fear, self-doubt, anxiety, and guilt.
You’ll stop being jealous over other people’s success and good fortune.
You’ll focus less on personal gain and more on putting others first.
You’ll stop being at odds with yourself, meaning, you’ll put an end to your inner conflict.
You will feel motivated to rid yourself of bad habits and/or character flaws.
Your mind will become quiet, as the background noise (or emotional attachments) that used to accompany you, have been eliminated.
You’ll stop having negative thoughts about yourself.
You’ll have the feeling that “What’s mine is mine, and what’s not mine is not mine.” Meaning, you’ll stop competing and fighting for personal gain.
And one last thing: SAD is definitely NOT a “life-sentence,” as others may have suggested to you!
