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 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. Even your garden, your office or your bed can become a respite from the world’s activity, even for 15 minutes a day. This space can be a literal space physically or a place in your inner world created through imagination or visualization.
In your first session with me before we begin, we create a “Safe Space” or sanctuary in your mind through visualization. You will become very relaxed and engaged. Most are surprised how easily they can drop into this imaginary space and how fun it is. The Safe Space becomes a place where miracles and magic happens and can be utilized later as an important meditation tool in the future.
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 a deep sense of 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.
