      • Sit or lay in a comfortable position.
      • Breath slowly and deeply.
      • Create a mental picture of the situation. Use color, faces, lighting, and positioning. Make it big.
      • Now slowly start shrinking the mental picture. Shrink it until it becomes small enough to hold in your hand.
      • If it is a voice or sound hear it getting softer –so weak it is a whisper or weak sound.
      Shrinking Stress

      • Breath slowly and deeply.
      • Create a mental picture of the situation. Use color, faces, lighting, and positioning. Make it big.
      • Imagine an eraser is in your hand. Feel it. See it.
      • Start rubbing the eraser over the problem.
      • Rub until the situation is gone.
      • Enjoy the moment.
      • Continue to deep breath for at least one minute in your happy place.
      Erasing Stress
    • Many of our anxieties come from our inner child not our adult selves. We need to know which problems in our lives come from child hood fears, traumas, and experiences. These unresolved problems cause additional stress in issues that other adults my not consider so stressful.
      Healing the Inner Child
      • Sit or lay in a comfortable position .
      • Breath slowly and deeply.
      • Where is your inner child hiding? Find it by assessing your body, where do you feel most tense-abdomen, chest, etc.
      • Identify the inner child: What does your inner child look like? What is the child wearing? How old is the child? How does the child feel?
      • Let the inner child’s feeling flow through your body and empty them into a container. As the container fills notice how you feel.
      • Now seal the container
      • Replace your inner child with peace and healing.
