WELCOME TO BARBARAH’S BLOG!
Our Imagery from Reversing Errors Of The Past continues with Against Anguish. Colette describes anguish as “a physical, agonizing pain. It is battling with pain and it’s better to surrender to it.” This is in contrast with Anxiety, where the pain comes as a result of on-going angst. Prayer For When Not Feeling Well follows.
You’ll find an Imagery exercise Storm Protection below. Colette’s description of Anxiety is useful to refer to once a storm is predicted. Don’t torment yourself by creating stories of “what if, suppose, they’re all saying, etc.” Stay in the present moment, and make certain you’ve followed emergency procedures so you’re safe. Staying calm is difficult if you glue yourself to the TV for hours of weather reports. During storm watches, broadcasters amp up the drama in their voices for days before a storm may arrive in your area. If you feel yourself getting anxious, Close your eyes and breathe out three times, breathing out the toxins of anxiety. Feel yourself becoming calm. Breathe out one time and open your eyes.
Watch storm broadcasts sporadically unless your area has already declared an official emergency. Then listen carefully for instructions. If your area is evacuated, know that in such a situation, you can effectively do an imagery exercise without closing your eyes or doing the special breathing. Simply see yourself surrounded by a protective shield and arriving at a safe place.
