Safe Place

Safe Place
One of the preparations for EMDR is visualizing a safe place that can be conjured up when feeling stressed. My counselor asked me to practice visiting my safe place.
It is a tropical island. There is a curated garden with pavilions and tropical flowers of yellow and orange, surrounded by a green rainforest. They release a scent that is calming. There are streams trickling through, and waterfalls in the distance.
There is an underground bunker full of mainframes and digital screens. It projects a holographic “shield” above the island to prevent satellites from seeing what’s happening on the ground. There is a perimeter defense system that keeps out pests and other dangerous critters.
