Just a thought that ive been having. Has anyone found a place weather it's in the deepest places in your soul or even something tangible that has enabled you to escape and find a place of serenity? I have given in to the idea of possibly using meditation in order to achieve this. has anyone used meditation or any other means by which to clear your mind, and if so how did that work out for you? I'm just really trying to get a grip and calm my soul. Thanks in advance.

From what you wrote I translate it into what is commonly called a "safe place". I did a six week (one day per week) group session recently covering different things. During one of the sessions we were to do an exercise where we would imaging a safe place that was calming.

The facilitator described a place he used to go as a boy, at the side of a creek where he would sit and just toss stones into the water. This was a physical place that he remembered and used.

On a different site (pandys.org - mainly women)there was a thread from someone who wanted to create their own safe place. She had "borrowed" one from a different member (with consent) but she wanted one of her own and wanted ideas on how to go about it. Some of the safe places described were quite elaborate. With multiple rooms with different levels of access for different young ones (internal multiples) where they could feel safe.

I have wanted to explore this further but have not yet done much with it. I have a hard time holding images. I hear it can take a bit of work.

If you want to see the threads

Candu,

Thanks for the input, I am going to read the links you have provided. They seem very interesting, kind of a real life "Inception" scenario.
Thanks for sharing this.

I have found this to be immensly helpful. "Loving kindness" meditation
