Roots of Anxiety

and how to deal with them

Feels unable to “call the shots” in life

Feels boxed in

Feels helpless to affect change

The above are the main reasons that anxiety begins to produce fruit. If you are ready to learn how to heal the roots and produce beautiful fruit of peace, calmness, composure, trust, tranquility, and certainty- read on.

In the case of anxiety, one must consider the roots, always. Unfortunately, with both allopathic (modern medicine) and natural medicine- there is a bent to treat the bad fruit, rather than getting at the root.

Funny enough, both sides of the fence agree on is that the explanations on why someone may have anxiety is the same. Treated vastly different, but nonetheless the “reasons” are the same. Circumstances such as brain chemistry altered, runs in the family (in scripture we call that a generational issue), or traumatic event all are pointed at culprits of anxiety. What I find astounding is that while these are accurate, few look at those in order to rid the person of the suffering.

Prescriptions of medication, treatments of herbs and essential oils or special diets are recommended all to help the person get through their life. I’m all for using herbs and oils, but what happens when the anxiety escalates because the root hasn’t been treated? What happens when a person who is experiencing anxiety walks through a year like 2020, or loses their job or in my case- their spouse? How much meds and/or essential oils does one need to not only get through, but recover?

I’m a needs to make sense kind of person and that does not make sense to me.

What makes sense is using what you need for a season all while getting after the root of the problem with the end goal of not having anxiety darken your doorstep again.

  • What makes sense to me is teaching someone how to speak out loud to the anxiety and saying, “nope, so sorry, but you are not welcome here anymore.” Didn’t Gloria Gaynor teach us anything?

  • What makes sense to me is helping someone get to the root of a problem, pulling out the root and helping the person feel strong enough so that they can do the above mentioned.

Discovering the root and then dealing with begins with asking questions.

With your Cedarwood essential oil in hand, (because we are working on changing the way we think and looking for answers) ask the following questions;

“why do I feel unable to “call the shots” in life?”

“How am I feeling boxed in?”

“Why do I feel helpless to affect change?”

Follow up question would be;

"when did I start feeling this way?"

"When was the first time I felt unable to call the shots, boxed in, helpless?"

It’s important to write the answers down so that you are able to see the truth of what is going on in your mind. When you have the fruit of a plant go sour, you assess what is happening, when did it start and/or what is eating away at the roots? Applying the same plant principles to your mind and emotions is key to truly uproot the mind mess and clear it away.

In addition, and I can’t say this enough, if you truly want to get at the root of anxiety, or any condition for that matter- you must stop saying “my anxiety”.

When we call something “my _____”, we take ownership of it, we embrace it with all it’s ugliness. The frequency of the word anxiety is so low and claiming it as your own lowers your frequency exponentially.


If you need to talk about it, begin to speak about it as an unwelcomed intruder.

Think of it this way- if you had been robbed at gunpoint in your home, would you retell the story saying, “my robber, my thief broke in….”?

Of course not.

Calling a condition yours is the exact same thing. Conditions come in and steal health and vitality from us. Unless we want more stealing and thieving occurring, we are wise to treat it the same as we would a home intruder.

Take that analogy and apply it to your children. If someone were coming in and attempting harm on your child, would you tell your child it was “their thief, intruder, assaulter”?

Again, of course not.

If you have a child who experiences any condition they were not born with, change your language today over them. It is not theirs, it is an intruder into their body & mind and it is attempting to destroy their spirit. Don’t partner with the condition and speak low frequency over yourself or your child. Speak healing, speak life over their circumstances. Also, don’t judge them for it either. Just because you don’t experience it doesn’t mean they are not. Just because your house didn’t get invaded, doesn’t mean your neighbor’s didn’t.

Listen, this goes for pets too. Words have weight, energy, and power. They are the children of your mouth. Give careful attention to the kind of “children” you are producing.

For anyone experiencing the condition of anxiety, as one would search tirelessly for how the intruder got into the home in the first place, be relentless on how anxiety was able to crack in. Where was the point of entry? Begin to ask these pointed questions, again, always with Cedarwood or even Clarity essential oil and you will start to connect the dots that lead you straight to the roots.
