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 home, a quiet room or just a corner of a room. A peaceful garden, your office or your bed can become the sanctuary you need to enjoy some respite from the world’s activity even for 15 minutes a day. You can create a place where you feel the most at peace and the most free.
In a Completion Process Life coaching session the first step is to create a “Safe Space” or sanctuary through visualization. Listening to me read a guided meditation, new clients are always surprised how real and how easily they drop into the visualization creating they’re perfect space. This becomes an important tool if we should rescue their childself and he or she wants to go somewhere safe where they can feel at peace and utterly free from the past troubling circumstances.
The imagination is a creative and a powerful tool. One 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!
Once created this becomes a destination tool in meditation practice to receive answers for yourself or just be free in a place of safety and relaxation.
