My body is an open channel where tension flows freely. I am open and unresisting, and I know tension and negative thoughts do not control me. They merely are passing through as quickly as they arrived.
Whatever I nurture becomes a part of me. It expands, grows, and puts down roots. Because I nurture peace, I am confident that it will increase within me.
I am unafraid of stressful thoughts and feelings.
Tension has no traction in my life because I let it flow through me and away. This makes room for more peaceful thoughts. Peace and tension cannot co-exist. Whatever I nurture will thrive.
Because I choose to nurture peace, I create an inner atmosphere conducive to improved health and creativity. I see no purpose in harboring tension. Instead, I let it flow away from me.
I take a moment to be alone and relax when I feel tension rising within me. I close my eyes, and let my thoughts drift through my mind like clouds in a summer sky. I follow none of them; I only allow them to pass through.
I know that my natural state is one of calmness and peace, and that, given the opportunity, my mind will return to this state. I let go and allow myself to return to the state of peace and harmony that my Creator instilled in me.
