In my own cocoon
What does your safe place look like?
She remembers a situation from when she was a child. She slept restlessly and woke up often. Her father hung a pink and white sheet above her bed. Mosquitoes could no longer get in, she was close to her family, but she was still in her own cocoon. A complete feeling of security.
She copies it on a piece of paper.
She draws two large hearts and the signs for Father-Son-Holy Spirit on the top. Furthermore, she says that God is now a blanket for her. In Him, with Him, she is safe.
She tells a specific situation in which God has protected her and through which she knows that God is always with her.
One opening of her safe place faces the window: nature, being outside, sunlight are important to her, a place to relax. The other opening is directed towards others, loved ones around her.
She says that sometimes she feels like she is losing herself.
But by creating this place she realizes where she can recharge, where she can come to herself, where she can choose whether she wants to be alone or with loved ones, whether she stays indoors or goes into nature.
She pauses to reflect on where she meets herself – in the presence of God.
