In what seems like eons ago, I studied with a master teacher named Brent Baum to assist trauma patients. Many of these classes took place at The Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and Health Sciences. Part of the trauma resolution treatment was to mentally create with the patient a masterfully thought out "PERFECT HEAVENLY SAFE SPACE." IT COULD INCLUDE ANYTHING LIVING, DEAD, HISTORICAL, MYTHICAL, OR SPIRITUAL. The energetic fingerprint of each patient's creation was unique to that person's needs. Their favorite food, vistas, smells, people, animals, climate were all part of this ever-growing safe space. Even a lovely home could be conjured up for them to live in.
As each session progressed, we included or deleted stunning thoughts as needed. Nothing was set in stone. It was from this positive healthy, secure energy that we worked to resolve their pains, traumas, and negativity. Of all the methods I have used, this lovely script remains my primary arsenal of tools to give solace to those who seek gentle healing methods.
Although I am a certified hypnotherapist, no one is asked to close their eyes. Eventually, they always do, once a sense of humor and safety emerge. It usually takes the middle of their first session for that to occur.
Now, wouldn't it be grand to live an entire lifetime with the surrounding protective energy of our very own "PERFECT HEAVENLY SAFE SPACE?" Last evening we enjoyed a fabulous documentary about the life of Prince Siddhartha, aka The Buddha. His exquisite philosophy rang so true about the manner in which our minds give and take away our own happiness. Of all the things I have learned, I believe that change is the one true constant. Change can be as harsh as violent warfare, or as magnificent as Nirvana. In the end, we must all choose our own journey. Which one will you choose?

Sounds a lot nicer to me than the imperfect world we humans have created for ourselves. How many sessions do you generally see/treat patients before they begin to experience some resolution to the traumas? Do you counsel people who are dying?
where can I find the documentary? The bible explains this type of meditation in the creation if one can read between the lines. I would like to learn these methods of meditation.
