Shabad for Anxiety/Fear/Relaxation

Any Bani can give any kirpa. There is no limitation on the kirpa that a particular shabad can give. However, I find that meditation on a shabad that discusses the blessings that one is seeking helps grant those blessings more quickly. I’ve found this shabad to be extremely helpful in dealing with anxieties and fears, especially those day to day anxieties regarding work and life etc.

ਭੈਰਉ ਮਹਲਾ
Bhairao, Fifth Mehl:

ਊਠਤ ਸੁਖੀਆ, ਬੈਠਤ ਸੁਖੀਆ
Standing up, I am at peace; sitting down, I am at peace.

ਭਉ ਨਹੀ ਲਾਗੈ, ਜਾਂ ਐਸੇ ਬੁਝੀਆ
I feel no fear, because this is what I understand. ||1||

ਰਾਖਾ ਏਕੁ ਹਮਾਰਾ ਸੁਆਮੀ
The One Lord, my Lord and Master, is my Protector.

ਸਗਲ ਘਟਾ ਕਾ ਅੰਤਰਜਾਮੀਰਹਾਉ
He is the Inner-knower, the Searcher of Hearts. ||1||Pause||

ਸੋਇ ਅਚਿੰਤਾ, ਜਾਗਿ ਅਚਿੰਤਾ
I sleep without worry, and I awake without worry.

ਜਹ ਕਹਾਂ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ! ਤੂੰ ਵਰਤੰਤਾ
You, O God, are pervading everywhere. ||2||

ਘਰਿ ਸੁਖਿ ਵਸਿਆ, ਬਾਹਰਿ ਸੁਖੁ ਪਾਇਆ
I dwell in peace in my home, and I am at peace outside.

ਕਹੁ ਨਾਨਕ, ਗੁਰਿ ਮੰਤ੍ਰੁ ਦ੍ਰਿੜਾਇਆ
Says Nanak, the Guru has implanted His Mantra within me. ||3||2||
