Image a place where anything is possible; if you can dream it, you can conceive it. It’s a place where people can purposely embrace their God-given talents and manifest a world where they flow in rhythm with universal vibration. This special space encourages your growth; it’s nourishing. This place is safe place, somewhere you can let your guard down in and be vulnerable; it’s a place where you are protected from harm. It’s where you feel the love of your loved ones.

Doesn’t this sound wonderful? Does it describe anywhere you’ve been? Does this place exist in your life currently? Can you imagine anyone surviving the world without being able to surrender and renew in a safe and supportive place?

If you do not have this place currently in your world, it is time to gift yourself with this space. Close your eyes and imagine what this place will feel and look like. Have you ever felt safe in an area in your life before? If so, recreate this feeling. What is symbolic of safety to you? Use all of your senses. Maybe in your childhood home you felt protected and you can remember the smell of home cooking, the feel of plush carpet under your feet, comfy furniture, warm colors and loved ones who surrounded you. Manifest this environment wherever you can. You may not have a home to decorate but what about your bedroom, your car, a private work space; you deserve a spot, even if it is small, to feel safe enough to energize and renew. This is essential to your mind, body and spirit.

Safety starts in your mind and through your perceptions. I’ll leave you with a quote by Amanda Lindhout as she describes a book that offered this safe haven to her, “The book is called 'A House in the Sky' because during the very, very darkest times, that was how I survived. I had to find a safe place to go in my mind where there was no violence being done to my body and where I could reflect on the life I had lived and the life that I still wanted to live.”
