heart, which derives from the all
prevailing consciousness, that our
times are in God's hands"

Breathe: take 3 long deep breaths to begin calming the central nervous system
Say the brief prayer of the Psalmist: "Lord, come to my assistance. Lord, make haste to help me."
Acknowledge the fear: "I acknowledge fear is present now." (SMILE)
Welcome / Accept the fear: "Welcome fear. HELLLLO! I know you're just a regular, typical, normal dream that everyone experiences at one point or another. You're not 'ME'. As scripture says, you're just part of the remnants of the 'old man/flesh self' and not the REAL ME . . . . 'new man/Christ self' identity.
G-E-N-T-L-Y proclaim Truth: "The Truth is, I, 'new man/Christ self', don't worry about my life, my body or tomorrow" (smile)
Give/release the fear/care to God: "Present God, I give this fear/care to you. Thanks for taking it"
Give Thanks: "Thank you God for this moment, for your power is being made perfect in me"
Move attention: "I WILLFULLY move my 'attention' mind faculty away from the fearful thinking, stories, and commentary, and back to the present moment: what I'm seeing, hearing, tasting, or touching, right here and now. How beautiful it is.
