    Hello everyone. I have been reading all of your posts and I must say they are quite enjoyable to see how everyone seems to be on a similiar path. I am 29 years old and up until about a year ago led a very different life. For about 8 years straight I did nothing but party and drink on the weekends, smoke pot, date various types of women etc...until about a year ago something happened. I started to have panic attacks and anxiety. I was so at a loss with myself because I was one who never suffered from anypsychological problems and the feeling of intense fear really freaked me out

    I then purchased the linden method which marked the beginning of my journey on really finding "myself". For anxiety sufferers this is an excellent tool. I started doing visualizations and it seemed to give me bits and pieces of info that basically teach us how are thoughts and emotions are not truely "you".

    I then stumbled upon "A New Earth" and could not put the book down as soon as I started reading it. I remember the feeling of intense joy and noticing the trees around me and I could feel such positive energy and felt connected with everyone I encountered. Keep in mind up until this point I was a meathead bachelor that cared about partying and getting intoxicated.

    I have been meditating for a couple of months now and picked up LifeFlow. Sometimes I feel that all the tough anxiety problems I went through which guided me to this journey of learning the "truth" had to happen. I am so thankful for everything that has happened even though it was one of the toughest experiences ever. It's funny how life works sometimes. I noticed the more and more I let go, weird coincidences seem to keep happening. Everything just seems to fall into place. Now when I find myself in some type of hardship, in the background I get alittle excited because I know I am about to learn something that life is trying to show me. I can tell once the message is clear because I can feel an intense feeling of peace and joy.

    I also notice one thing...when I talk and share my experiences with other people I get that same feeling. As I am typing right now I can feel this intense current of joy throughout my body. Do you guys feel this? Its like life is somehow trying to tell me to help others to realize what I have realized. Who knows...

    I naturally just stopped some of my old habits and I know I still have lots to learn. I no longer suffer from panic attacks or anxiety but when I do feel anxious here and there it feels like some sort of reminder helps keep me balanced and in the "present" moment.

    I am flying to Europe next Tues and something is telling me I am going to learn something there. All in all, I am so excited for this new life and even more excited that I have find others on a similiar path.
