But I thought I'd post a message to see what people thought.

First, I get these panic attacks. I've had them for as long as I remember but can go for a year without the next one happening. Sometimes they happen a lot in a short period then disappear again.
Sometimes it's for no reason. Other times it's because I've thought far too deeply. I think about the fact that in about 70 years I'll be gone. I know it's ages away (probably) and that I'm young and shouldn't worry. But I just freak out and can't stop thinking about what happens. I'm agnostic and when they happen I feel faint, out of breath, an increased heart rare, pure terror and momentary confusion and disorientation. Most of the time I feel like I'll die then and there. I was wondering if this shows sigh of a proper phobia, maybe thantophobia?

And the last thing is my odd little spasms. I think it'll be just someone 'walking over my grave' a little too much. I get them from time to time, same as the attacks, eg they can be frequent and infrequent. I lose control of my arm, that flaps quickly in one direction, and my head that snaps to the other side. But I have come to no harm, unless I'm standing next to something. As I said, probably nothing to worry about.

Sorry if this is silly, I just want to know. :P

  • I recommend a brisk study of Existential philosophy to combat your mental vertigo at the thought of death. As for the head and arm spasms, they sound like small seizures, maybe the TV is causing them? They don't sound that bad, probably nothing to worry about unless they increase in duration or intensity or spread to other body parts.

  • Thank you for the reply. But, funnily enough, I have recently had, what I believe to a spiritual awakening. I know have the small belief that humans are capable of become a higher level of beings. This won't happen in my life time but I now understand that energy doesn't just disappear. Things don't CEASE to exist in the sense I thought before. I believe if I am positive good things will happen, even if most of the world ****s on me most of the time. This world is going wrong but it doesn't need to. There is hope and I just want to leave that idea out for people, people are already doing that. I'm just happy to add to it. And the spasms probably are something like that. I'm not worried though so until I actually do feel like they're dangerous I'll just be careful and follow the guide lines for tv's and having breaks from screens and other such stuff. Thank You again and spread the good vibes like how you were helping here!

  • :) What does agnostic mean?. The reason i ask is, in one statement you said that you were agnostic, & then the next statement you say, something about a spiritual awakening. So which one is it?, or are you both?, or are you just boared?. Then theres the question; Do you really have a problem, that can be addressed?. Waiting for your reply,, as always, In His Service.:rolleyes:

  • Agnostic means you are not precisely sure but open to ideas. And also, people can develop more positive attitudes. The fact that I helped myself doesn't mean I didn't or don't have problems. It means I was able to be open enough to change. And I think you should have thought that through a bit better.

  • First, i'm well aware of the word agnostic, i was just testing the water, O.K. As far as you having a positive attitude, sounds like your all there.I very much enjoy speaking with someone with intellect Theres just one more thing, and that is, if your open to it? That "is" about my Saviour The Lord ***********t. As Always, In His Service.

  • Fair enough! I can understand that! :) I appreciate that you accept that I have my own views and I appreciate you telling me about ****s. I appreciate the idea and thought behind it but, honestly, there are just somethings that certain Christians believe. I believe in the energy of the positive things that have been thought of towards ****s so even if he actually wasn't the son of God and even if (and I am saying IF because I don't know properly, anything's possible) there isn't a God, I still appreciate that there is good energy and love linked to those figures. If you believe, it's true for you, in your own reality and in that end that's ALL that matters. Peace to you, Man! :D

  • I think the anxiety concerning death and "heavy thinking" is completely normal, in as much as deep philosophical pondering is normal. Of course, they say "ignorance is bliss" for a reason - deep thought and enlightenment can be scary and for that reason it chases a lot of people away!The spasms do sound like miniature seizures. This could be caused by any type of flashing light - TV, computer, fluorescent bulbs, or even strange patterns of light and shadow coming through the trees, signs, or buildings.I am a little curious how you came to your conclusions about spirituality. Mainly because I have come up with very similar conclusions, primarily through independent meditation and I am always interested to meet someone who agrees and what they have seen/felt to believe it. :DIf you want to talk more feel free to email me at kaotic133@comcast.net. I know some healing techniques that are a little 'out there,' and I would hate to cause any public argument. ;)

  • Well, I'll be sure to write your email down and get in touch, but if you had a myspace it'd be better because that's how I email now hehe. But if not then I'll email like a normal person! I came to the conclusion.... because... I think deep down I've felt that that is the truth. It is LOGICAL. It makes sense. Good creates more of itself, which isn't hard to understand if you think about it. It simply makes logical sense. I can see the logic in most of the things to do with 'magic' although I don't call it 'magic' because that makes it seem like it's supernatural. It's not. It's energy and energy effects EVERYTHING. It's proven time and time again. If you are a nice, strong person, people react to that. If you are 'strong' in the false, just being a mean,selfish person, people may seem to respect you but they really hate you and/or are afraid. That sends bad energy out and just feeds the negativity in the world. I think we are programmed to see more bad than good when it is equal. We make it worse when we allow ourself to stay in the 'program' society and other people have placed on us. They think they are only doing good though, well most of the time. So it's tricky. I watched this science documentry that was talking all about quantum physics and how we humans have so much more potential than we think we do. It was talking about how we take in something like 4000 pieces of information about our reality through our eyes and things, but as of just now most people only think of 2000. But we DO have the ability to see more. We are just stuck in 'addictive' thought patterns of needed to SEE something. And even then we still don't believe. You get a tiny, tiny microscopic, em, can't remember what they described it as, it's not atom or maybe it is. It's something like that. Now they know for a fact that they've placed only ONE of these things under the lens. And yet, when you look, you see two. That's because everything exists everywhere all at once. We can't comprehend that yet because we haven't mastered a lot of dimensions REALLY when you think about. I had thought all this kind of stuff for ages and seeing CLEVER, EDUCATED, OLDER people who believed it with all their heart made me finally accept. I still won't accept most of the stuff I know but that's cause I'm young and have been conditioned. Sorry!Talked a ***t load! And yeah, I'll keep an eye on the spasms but I think I was worrying too much.:D

  • fear of death has a couple of important functions.1.to keep you out of danger.2.to help you feel the urgency of life,and the importance of doing your very best to use your time and energy in proper ways,and especially to love others selflessly and without hope of return.beware of religious manipulators .why do you think they want you to think the same as they do?

  • :) Hello There, am i not correct in saying that there are two separate issues @ hand here?. # 1, the fear of God & #2 the fear of death. The fear of God is the beggining of wisdom, the fear of death, being afraid that you are not prepared to meet God. Are you prepared?.
