Why Do Panic Attacks Occur?

“Panic is a sudden desertion of us, and a going over to the enemy of our imagination”

Christian Nevell Bovee

Doesn’t that sum up exactly what’s happening with panic attacks?

Why do panic attacks occur?

Why does a confident self assured person suddenly feel powerless and vulnerable when the panic arises? It’s as if the bodily sensations race, the mind jumps from logic and reason to intense fears fueled by imagination.

One of the most difficult concepts for people to understand is why they feel so suddenly powerless during a panic attack.

Our body’s natural reaction to panic attacks is to immediately fight it. Shut it down as soon as possible. It’s at this point that we start to use techniques we learned on the internet, such as deep breathing or distraction to cope with the sudden burst of anxiety only to find the panic has already wrapped us up. When the techniques fail, that is when we really leap over to ‘the enemy of our imagination.’

You may think to yourself,

“I used my coping techniques but still feel anxious, in fact it may be getting worse!”

“What if this keeps getting worse and I can’t get help?”

Once you’re on this path of thought, the fear will continue to escalate leaving you feel more vulnerable and out of control.

The Secret To Getting On Track

To regain control and get back to yourself, is to respond to the panic in an appropriate manner.

Rather than fight the body sensations, work with them.

Next time you experience a panic attack coming on, acknowledge the sensations you are feeling and remind yourself that you are actually safe. Tell the sensations to get WORSE.

Do the opposite of resistance. Encourage the panic and move with it.

Real panic only begins when you hand over reason and control to imagination. When you move from the experience voluntarily, you are now the decision maker and retain control. The panic attack now happens on your terms only.

Learn more about this approach and how to apply it to various manifestations of panic and general anxiety. Now you don’t have to ask yourself, “Why do panic attacks occur?”

Read my story here. I have had similar experiences and overcame my own panic disorder.

Here is a sample of how Panic Away has helped others:

“…learned more from reading your program than I did from all the psychologists and other practitioners I had seen in the 25 years- I must tell you that out of all the items you can purchase regarding anxiety related products on the internet, I learned more from reading your program than I did from all the psychologists and other practitioners I had seen in the 25 years that I’ve had this condition.

I had been on Xanax and Klonopin for about 10 years, but this December, I decided to withdraw from it thinking I didn’t need the pills anymore according to some of the programs I ordered claiming “miracle cures”.

That’s when all my symptoms started again. I felt as if I had wasted the past 20 years trying to get better.That’s when I started searching the web for home based “cures”. I ordered so many programs I started to get confused from too much conflicting advice.

Also, I was promised support but I am still waiting replies from some of the more expensive programs! You are a true gentleman, and I am going to post a very positive feedback on a website you might be familiar about called: Tapir?

Talk to ya”

…I DEBATED ORDERING YOUR PROGRAM BECAUSE I HAVE SPENT APPROX. $8,000 IN THE LAST 5 YEARS, I RAN ACROSS YOUR PROGRAM SUNDAY, FEB. 5th. I DEBATED ORDERING YOUR PROGRAM BECAUSE I HAVE SPENT APPROX. $8,000 IN THE LAST 5 YEARS OF MY LIFE TRYING EVERYTHING FROM PANIC SUPPORT CLASSES, MEDICATION, COUNSELING AND THE LIST GOES ON, ALL TO RID MYSELF OF PANIC ATTACKS.

SOMETHING INSIDE ME SAID, JUST KEEP TRYING, SO I DID. AFTER 5 YEARS OF OF LIVING MY LIFE WITH THE WORLD ON MY SHOULDERS I AM EXCITED TO SAY THAT I AM NOW PANIC FREE. AFTER ONE TIME OF APPLYING YOUR ONE MOVE TECHNIQUE, I AM A NEW PERSON. ONE OF MY MANY FEARS THAT I DEVELOPED WAS DRIVING. AFTER READING YOUR PROGRAM AT 12.30 AT NIGHT I WROTE DOWN SOME QUICK NOTES FROM YOUR “ONE MOVE TECH.”

I RAN OUT OF MY HOUSE AND DROVE TOWARD THE DARKEST SCARIEST ROAD WHERE NOBODY WAS NEAR BY. THIS WOULD DEFINITLY BRING ON AN FULL PANIC ATTACK, WHICH IT DID. WHILE LETTING MYSELF FEEL THE EMOTIONS RUN THROUGH ME, I DID EXACTLY WHAT YOU TOLD ME TO DO, I WAS SCARED AS HELL BUT STOOD MY GROUND.

I INSTANTLY CALMED AND EVEN TRIED TO BRING THE ATTACK BACK ON, BUT COULD NOT. I LITTERALLY LAUGHED OUT LOUD AND SAT IN MY TRUCK AMAZED. AFTER ALL THIS TIME THAT WAS ALL I HAD TO DO. THE COMPLETE OPPOSIT OF EVERYTHING THAT I WAS TOLD. THIS WHOLE WEEK I HAVE DRIVEN WHERE EVER I WANTED,AT ANY TIME OF THE DAY. I AM SO GLAD I FOUND YOUR PROGRAM. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL YOUR RESEARCH, TIME, AND DEDICATION SO THAT PEOPLE LIKE US CAN NOW LIVE A NORMAL AND HAPPY LIFE.”
