If you want to, give this a try:
Actually, you might want to read it and then try it.
Mentally say to yourself five things you can see, hear and feel. Then four, then three, then one...and you might find yourself relaxing while you do that and you may like to discover how good that feels. And, if you want to close your eyes that's fine and if not, that's fine too. As the fact that you're there doing this exercise means you can get a really good sense of what feeling relaxed means to you.
And now, imagine a screen. Whether you see it there in front of you or you know it's there somewhere, that's right. See, sense and imagine it your way. Now on that screen is a time in your life when you needed some help. Perhaps a mildly upsetting moment from your past. But it's okay. That moment is frozen. And in that frozen image you can see a picture of your former self. How you were when you were going through that mildly upsetting event.
And when you're ready you might like to discover that you can go over to the screen and climb into the screen and enter that moment. But this time things are different. You have control over the moment. You're safe here. And you walk over to that former version of yourself and greet them however is best for you. You might like to say hi, or give them a hug.
And you might like to let them know that things turn out okay. Okay in the sense that you survive that troubling moment and, even though there may be some bad things in your library of experience, there are some good moments too.
And you might like to let that former version of yourself know that you know that no matter what has happened or will happen, you know he's a good person worthy of love and respect.
And if this is the version of you who you were before the SA and the other stuff developed, then you might also like to take hold of the earlier version of you's hand and hold it and realise that that's your hand. Your hand is touching your hand. Your body is touching your body and this body you are holding is your body. And you might like to let that former version of you merge or melt into yourself. And you might like to discover that you went through a bad time and survived. You came through it and changed and all the qualities that former version of you had are still yours. Your carried them with you. They are you.
And when you're ready, you might like to bring yourself back to full and present awareness.
