  1. Chana Jenny . . . such a helpful message today. Thank you. I also use visualization to calm my nerves. This is what I do . . . I take the first four verses of Psalm 91 – and visualize that I am in the secret place – abiding under the shadow of Hashem. I keep doves at my place and hold them in my hands and I know how dear their wings are. When afraid, I visualize I have taken refuge under the wings of Hashem – and then I am flooded with peace – and can then carry on. Fear is debilitating – but peace brings liberty. May all in eretz Israel be safe and abide in trusting assurance and peace.

  2. Thank you!!!!
