This week I am really working on my safe space visualisation for the EMDR. Was amazing in the half hour we were working on it it already started to work when I thought of something uncomfortable but then used my trigger word- Meadow- I got all the relaxed calm feelings I am associating with my visualisation and the anxiety about the situation I was thinking about dissipated. I felt like writing my visualisation down and finding a picture that would help trigger it for me- and thought sod it might as well share it.
It does sound a bit like that classic “I’m going to my happy place” whilst hysterically rocking back and forth, but heck its working so what do I care.
What would your visualisation be?
