What are multiple personalities or Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID)? In case of extreme stress, abuse, or trauma, the spirit body is made with the ability to fragment or fracture from the core spirit. This is a survival tool God gave us so a portion of our spirit has the ability to exit our bodies when burdens become greater than the strength to endure. I discovered the integration of multiple personalities back to the core spirit is possible, but I want to explain in more detail about this disorder before moving on.
Before I share my stress management activity that is simple and quick with good results, I want to list some of the most common physical symptoms stress causes.
Top Physical Symptoms Caused by Stress
Aches, pains, and tense muscles.
Chest pain and rapid heartbeat.
Frequent colds and infections.
Upset stomach, including diarrhea, constipation, and nausea.
Loss of sexual desire and/or ability
Would anyone want to sign up for those “effects”? And this list is just a few of the many physical symptoms stress causes.
When experiencing long-term physical, mental, or emotional stress, the body stays in survival or fight flight response where the body’s energy is out of balance. The majority of the body’s energy moves into the legs and arms in preparation to run or fight. God intended the survival mode mechanism to kick in on a short-term basis for protection and safety purposes; however, in today’s fast-paced environment, a high percentage of people are living in fight flight response on a daily basis which is robbing valuable energy that is needed for the body’s organs to grow and repair cells. This state of being is very unhealthy for the body and can lead to serious health problems.
We all are affected by stress. Since we can’t get completely away from stress, we have to learn to deal with it. Complicated or time-consuming solutions to alleviate stress often end up causing more stress. It is best to choose a stress management activity that easily flows into your day but yet is effective.
Stress Release Activity Simplified
Our “to do” lists are always longer than the time we have to complete them. A stress management activity needs to be a simple, quick solution, or it most likely will not be helpful. The best stress release activity I have found to deal with stress is to take a couple of deep breaths, and then say a quick stress release prayer. It resets me, and I am able to cope moving forward with focus and strength.
Stress Release Prayer with Quick Calm Deep Breaths
I like to say this short stress release prayer with quick calm deep breaths. The breathing technique Jordan shares in this video is helpful in stopping runaway thoughts by quickly breathing and praying to calm my inner being.
Easy Short Stress Release Prayer
By the power of God, I command and release any stress stored on all layers and levels of ___________’s body, mind, and spirit and to go to the light of God to be healed. Thank you.
The words of this prayer can be changed to fit your personality and what feels comfortable to you. All that is needed is to pray with sincerity and meaningful, heartfelt emotion.
God hears and answers prayers. All we have to do is believe and ask.
For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Matthew 7:7-8

Another short stress management activity that may be helpful
If I have a hard time falling to sleep or if I wake up during the night and can’t fall to sleep, I listen to this short guided prayerful meditation to release fear. Most guided meditations don’t work for me but word choices in this prayerful meditation calm me right to sleep in less than 12 minutes. Hopefully, it will work for you too.
If you are working hard to rid yourself and others of dark entities, it is important to remember to say a spiritual shield protection prayer after the negative entities have been removed.
When we begin our day, we always pray that each member of our family will be shielded with a perfect shield of protection.
There are scripture stories like when Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were protected. Nebuchadnezzar cast them into the fire but they were not harmed. I think it is likely that a spiritual shield of protection kept them safe.
…..upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats change, nor the smell of fire had passed on them. Daniel 3:27
Another scripture story about Samuel, a Lamanite who stood on the wall of the city of Zarahemla to tell the people to repent is an example of someone who was surrounded with a spiritual shield of protection most likely because a prayer for protection was offered.
But as many as there were who did not believe in the words of Samuel were angry with him; and they cast stones at him upon the wall, and also many shot arrows at him as he stood upon the wall; but the Spirit of the Lord was with him, insomuch that they could not hit him with their stones neither with their arrows. Helaman 16:2
Fear and Anger can Destroy a Spiritual Shield of Protection
I have a friend who studied the New Testament with the intent to further his knowledge about healings in the Bible. He discovered that exactly half, 28 out of 56, were healed of their tormenting physical and/or mental illnesses by saying a prayer to remove dark or negative entities (New Testament term is “casting out”), and the person was blessed with healing. We can all learn how to pray to remove dark entities so we can experience healing too.
