We All Need a Safe Space.
“Sanctuary, on a personal level, is where we perform the job of taking care of our soul.” — Christopher Forrest McDowell
We all need a place to call our own. A place we can escape to for peace and quiet, safety and repose. A place where we can escape from the busyness of life. A place we can be completely free to create, dream, heal, sing, paint, read or just be. This can be your whole home, a quiet room or corner of a room. Or even a garden space, office or your bed. But this is the place you feel the most at peace and the most free.
In the Completion Process, the first step is to create a “Safe Space” or sanctuary with visualization. Listening to a guided meditation the client creates with the imagination his or her perfect sanctuary or “safe place.” New clients are always surprised how real and how easily they drop into this process. They become familiar with their Safe Space and even use it as a tool of mediation later!
The imagination is a creative and a powerful tool. You can make the Safe Space as imagined or as real as you like! You are the builder of this special place and decide how you want it to be. You can create a beautiful landscape on this earth or on another planet or in another galaxy. It can have cascading waterfalls, animals, beautiful fields of flowers or a healing ocean. This place has certain elements such as Healing Water and a Safe transcendent Being that supports you.
If you have ever experienced powerlessness in your life, it is deeply healing to be able to create a sanctuary or safe place where anything is possible, where there are no limits and it brings you peace and safety!
