I was thinking today about where a ‘safe’ place to be is for me. I am not talking about a physical place, but somewhere in my mind I can go to relax, think, mentally re-charge and just be. A place where my emotions are calm and all the negative stuff in the world is banished and there are no energy draining people to affect my life. And it came to me, my own parallel universe. I can create this in my imagination and build a picture that is so vivid and inviting for me.
Then I thought, how will I begin? Should I do the location first, or should I create what I want in the location first and then create somewhere. Do I want it to be the same every time or do I want to be able to change it around and have more or less in my parallel universe?
I am coming to the conclusion that my parallel universe will be a tranquil island with silver sands surrounded by blue, clear water. In the water dolphins are playing. The temperature will be ideal for me, the grass lush and green. There is a waterfall making a pleasant whooshing noise and there are brightly coloured birds fluttering around and playing with the butterflies and dragonflies.
I have a lovely garden room that has my comfy chair in it that hugs me and makes me feel so welcome, so that I can sit and relax and take in the scenery. There are bookshelves full of books written by so many wise people for me to learn from.
That is the basis of my parallel universe and every time I go there I will see if something else needs to be added, or someone depending on what I am thinking about or which problem I am endeavouring to solve. It may be that something needs to be taken away and put back at a later date.
I am now thinking about a name for my parallel universe. This place where I can go whenever I choose and sit and reflect and think and learn. Nothing is coming to mind at the moment. I shall leave that idea open and see what comes to me.
