Essential tremor inspires unhappiness. The unexplainable shaking is a burden to carry, and it brings disappointments and adjustments. Essential tremor requires an ability to see beyond its annoying developments in order to live a life that is full.
People who are afflicted with essential tremor often experience embarrassing moments and disturbing incidents. These difficulties can lead to emotional reactions that exacerbate the shaking. In addition to the essential-tremor-caused emotional negativity, normal negative feelings can exacerbate the shaking. In general, negative feelings are bad for the essential-tremor shaking and contribute to the spreading of the shaking to other parts of the body.
(So I ask Spirit: Does this mean that people like me who have essential tremor must be happy all the time?) People with essential tremor require relaxed being. They must build their lives to be satisfying and free of selected anger. They must lessen stress if they want to limit the shaking intensity. Their reactions can be negative or positive, with one choice bringing side effects of the tremor and the other bringing lessened stress on the nerves that cause shaking.
(When I drive, I sometimes feel aggression which aggravates my tremor. When I do the Reset breath while driving, I feel no aggression and my calmness relaxes the tremor. See the post “Essential tremor—breathing to lessen the effects” for details about the Reset breath.)
Essential tremor is not a welcomed affliction, but it is an affliction that can be put in its place when commitment is made to maintaining emotional equilibrium.
