Perpetual Mantra

The Eternal Ringing

I know that things are always working out for me.
It’s a bold affirmation considering that
My past has caught up with me. I now realize
That I’ve screwed up completely. Does this make me wise?
I cannot listen to my mind’s idle chitchat.
Can I still live my life as I want it to be?

Things often work out for me. Sometimes I’m aware
That they are, and it feels good whenever they do.
I don’t need to focus upon the condition.
All I need is to give myself full permission
To be more worthy of the mantra being true.
It’s a statement that any person can declare.

Things are always working out for me. It is fact.
I’m beginning to trust in my own wellbeing.
I’m not worthy of feeling unworthy of it.
All that is created is for my benefit,
And my inner being is never agreeing
With my self-loathing. That’s not part of my contract.

I can help things to work out by my consciously
Accepting and repeating what has been made clear.
I can smooth out the flow of what’s coming by my
Remembering that I can completely rely
On the mantra perpetual. A new frontier
Of enlightenment is available to me.

Calm And De-Escalate

Dealing With Stress

The intense sense of threat or fear, if left unchecked,
Can cause harm to the body. The brain, in this state,
Goes into survival mode. Reason and logic
Are switched off, and the primitive portion will kick
Into high gear. That’s why people cannot think straight
When they are escalated. Good sense they reject.

This part of the brain’s job is to keep one alive.
Harm or danger ignites it. When we are angry,
Stress hormones then start flowing. Blood pressure will rise.
Inconceivable madness is seen in the eyes.
Cues nonverbal we tend to read negatively.
All this part of the brain wants to do is survive.

So, how does someone deal with someone who’s irate?
Empathy is the best way. People have to know
That their feelings are valid, and it is okay
To express them in safety. You can in this way
Have a calm interaction. The care that you show
For their tough situation can de-escalate.

Regulate their emotions. Do not educate.
Stay with what they are feeling, and validate it.
Slow down your body movements, and lower your tone.
People relax when they know that they’re not alone
With regard to their feelings. They will benefit
From the nurturing atmosphere that you create.
