Image drawing bright white light into your body
Fill your lungs completely
Imagine that white light is filling your body completely
Imagine your anxiety and negative thoughts are a darkness
Push it all together into a black mass and exhale it out through your mouth
Empty your lungs completely
Keep going until all the black is gone and your entire body is filled with white light. Breathe in through the nose and out through the mouth
