Creating a Safe Place Mindfulness Exercise: Transform Post-Traumatic Stress into Growth & Resilience

Welcome to the Post-Traumatic Growth and Resilience Project!

This comprehensive program contains 21 Mindfulness Sur-Thrival exercises to help you transform post-traumatic stress and anxiety into growth and resilience. Each of these exercises also has a 1-minute pause near the end to give you time for reflection.

We can’t truly be free from the anxiety and stress of life until we can learn how to step away from our thoughts and focus on the beauty and stillness of the moment – that’s what mindfulness can do for us.

Exercise #1 – Creating a SAFE Place in Your Mind. Objective: Establishing a safe place for your thoughts to go.

A SAFE place is any place where you feel safe and secure or any place that brings you peace. It is a place where you can safely express emotions and a place where you can retreat into in times of stress. It might be a natural setting like the beach, a childhood bedroom, a cozy niche, a healing sanctuary, a beautiful garden, or a mountain retreat.

Now close your eyes and think of a place you consider safe. Imagine yourself in this space and experience things with all of your senses. You might hear soft wind chimes or music, hear trickling water, or smell wonderful aromas.

Repeat the affirmations: I am safe. I am aware. I forgive. I embrace the present.

Stay here as long as you like and as long as you need to regain that sense of peace, tranquility and balanced.

These exercises can be used within a solitary mindfulness practice or featured in groups and classes. This guide is perfect for PTSD Groups. Therapists or Counselors.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder has become a worldwide epidemic. While there may not be a “cure” there are ways to better manage it, and mindfulness is one of those ways. Mindfulness grounds you to the earth and to the present moment allowing you to temporarily step away from the pain and the trauma. The more you connect with this inner world of healing, through a practice like mindfulness the more peace and harmony you will experience.
