IF YOU FEEL AS IF YOU ARE LOSING IT:

1. FOCUS ON YOUR BREATHING: Meditation and yoga have the power to change DNA, and can transform stress;

2. FOCUS ON YOUR INTENTION: What do you need to do now to take care of yourself?

3. CALL SOMEONE: Say, “I need help. Talk me down.”

4. IDENTIFY THE CORE EMOTION RISING: Fear, shame, feeling bullied, anger;

5. REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE: Ask - What do I need to release in order to get back to center, get back my armor of light, back in my spiritual power?

6. ASK: What is my one next step?

7. DO IT.

While we fight, we also need spaces for healing & emotional support.

If you focus on your breathing, it will bring you out of your mind and back into your body. Just know that you are not alone.
