Anxiety Senses

SIGHT - Anxiety is a thick, bloody heart pulsing, strong and fine, and then faster and faster.

SOUND - Anxiety is a “whaaaaaaaaaa” – the squawk of seagulls taking flight as a swift dog chases after on a sandy shore

TASTE - Anxiety is the taste of wasabi. There is a momentary pause, and then it whacks you hard, hitting you sorely behind the nose and eyes. Very short. Distinct. A swift blow of coldness/burning/tingling sensation mingled together.

SMELL - Anxiety is a smell that causes you to take notice of it. A rotten orange or other citrus fruit gone awry. Pungent. Takes you off guard. Acidic.

TOUCH - Anxiety is when you go out on a cold day without hat or gloves. You touch your car handle. It’s cold, blistering. You pull away. It’s unexpected in its force. It stuns you.

Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

-Philippians 4:5-7
