Happy Place

13 comments

Hello and welcome you beautiful being.  I wrote a song called “Happy Place” for a  Music Therapy session where the song was used as a tool to de-escalate negative emotions and shift our attention to something that comforts.  My music meditations are always prefaced with a breathing exercise to center ourselves; be more in control and present. There are so many breathing techniques and breathing meditations out there.  The following is one of the many you can do to prepare yourself for this meditation called “Happy Place”.

1.  Change your physiology by elongating the spine while taking a deep breath in. Roll your shoulders back and down.
2.  Stretch your arms to your sides and over your head as you take another deep breath in.
3.  While deeply breathing in and out with this upright posture, roll your neck around, then in the other direction.
4.  Try inhaling then twisting your whole upper body to the right side as you exhale.  With every inhale you elongate the spine, with every exhale you twist even further.  Do this on the other side.

Now that you are more relaxed and loose imagine with detail, using as many senses as possible, what your safe place is. This is the place that makes you feel happy, peaceful, harmonious, loved, or a place of safe escape.  Take as much time as you need to envision this “Happy Place”.  What does it look like, feel like, sound like, and possibly even taste like.  Brighten the colors you see.  Make the images vivid!  Turn up the volume of the sounds.  Escape to this place.

In the even that your mind keeps wondering, or you are distracted, do your best to remain focused on the breath to come back to your center and gain more focused control.  If a thought comes in let it go.  Do not sit with the thought, entertain it, dwell, analyze, or put meaning or attachment to it.  Release it and come back to observing the breath, then transition back on to your “Happy Place”.

Hold this feeling for as long as you can.  You have just re calibrated to a better feeling!

In a 1:1 or group session I would be singing my music mediation “Happy Place” while you are engaged in imaging your happy place.  The music is used to fortifying the mood, feeling, and images conjured up.  It helps set the tone.

Love and Light!”
