A HUGE angry dog kept trying to jump the fence to “get” me. My heart was pounding and the fear was right in my face. I was at choice---panic, give into the fear, cry---what?!?!?!? So often “something” can re-stimulate us. It’s what we do at that moment.
KC: Event though I want to run and there is no one to help me I choose to remember that I am not alone and that it will be okay. I love and acknowledge how much courage it takes to stay calm; and to remember I am okay in this exact moment.
KC: Even though the dog could leap that fence any second and attack me--- in this moment I’m okay. I choose to remember I am not alone and that whatever happens is for my highest and best good.
KC: Even though I’m flashing back to that prior attack this doesn’t have to end the same way. I’ve come along way in my personal growth since then. I’m not the same “victim” as I was back then.
EB: That is a huge dog
SE: There is no one around to help me
UE: I’ll get killed if he gets me
UN: My heart is racing
CH: I feel trapped
CB: I’m not alone
UA: My team is around me
TH: I’m safe right this second
EB: Walk slow but steadily on
SE: Remember you are not alone
UE: I am safe and loved this time
UN: I will be okay
CH: I am loved
CB: I am safe
UA: The air is warmer around me
TH: I feel safe
EB: I don’t hear the dog
SE: I am okay
UE: I can walk through my fears
UN: I can remember I am safe in the moment
CH: I didn’t know I could calmly walk through my fear
CB: What a gift
UA: What a miracle
TH: Thank you
Breathe in through the nose and out through the mouth- ahhhh
CB: Perhaps I can apply this lesson to other areas of my life. What if I can walk though the fear and know I AM not alone. Hummmm.
