“Many years ago I suffered an incident with a lorry that left me needing neck surgery. I learned a technique then to cope and I’ve been using it again lately. Here it is:
Sit or lie down comfortably and take calm, deep breaths until you feel relaxed.
Visualize your mind as a large palace, castle, building with lots of rooms. One you either know well or can imagine well.
In your mind, walk to one of the rooms and unlock the door. Enter and choose a chest, cupboard, or drawer. Unlock that and place all your fears, worries, and negativity inside.
Lock the vestibule of darkness, leave and lock the room. See all those things in a place that can no longer affect you.
Now, walk through your Cerebral palace to another room far away. It’s unlocked and filled with all the things that make feel safe and happy. Visualize all of those things. Then open your eyes and seize the day. You can do this technique as often as you need to cope.”
In a world of pain and stress
It’s okay to be reticent
We’re all under duress
Suffering our individual torment
Everything seems to cause worry
Each news report intimidates and scares
Earths become a nightmare curry
Even now I feel those fears
There is a way to breathe and cope
By creating your cerebral palace
A place of tranquillity and hope
The regal home of warmth and solace
Go there now and meditate
Turn on that positive light
Let go of the darkness and hate
One day everything will be alright
Thanks for reading my friends.
Have a great day!
