During daily activities, at work, a school or any other place, we are exposed to stress, exhaustion and other different influences. The human being is a very flexible and durable. It can take a huge load on the shoulders. Only thing that it requires in return is a time for rest. This rest can be passive like sleeping or taking a nap. Also it can be active, like fitness or talking to the friends. The load of daily activities can be taken as long as there is balance between activity and rest.
But in contemporary world it is very often that load on our shoulders is simply too heavy. The pressure from our work can pursue us even while we are at our home, at the comfort of our bed. Sometimes nothing seems to help, neither shower nor pills. The problem is in the fact that even that we are physically far from our work, we are still mentally there. As long as there is mental pressure from the work, or whatever is your personal worry, you cannot relax fully. Next morning you will probably be tired and feel that you lack mental strengths for challenges of a new day.
The two-week vacation will probably help, but you simply cannot afford the vacation any time that you feel that you need recharge. The solution should be found elsewhere. The solution is supposed to give you the relief from mental worries of real world. The solution needs to distract you from your problems and to restart your system.
The Secret place meditation may be solution for your day to day pressure. The secret place, or a personal place, is a imaginary or real place where you feel good and safe. This is the place where time is not important, obligations are not there and nobody is chasing you for anything. This place is absolutely yours, tailored as you like it. If you have a real place that gives you this feeling, you can choose it as a place for secret place meditation. If you do not have such a perfect place in the real world, make up your own secret place. You can imagine it any way that you want. Imagine place that will make you happy. That can be a private island that looks just as you wish. You can choose a top of the mountain. You can choose beautiful oasis in the desert. You can choose a forest. Use your imagination, there is no any limitation. The purpose of mental construction of your secret private place is to create your personal mental hideout from everyday worries and obligations.
For example, you may have chosen a beautiful cedar forest as your secret place. Imagine that you walk through the cedar forest calm and relaxed. You are fully confident into trustfulness of this forest. Try to evoke sensations of all your senses, in order to make this visit to the secret place as real as possible. Try to feel the cedar smell, hear song of the birds, try to feel the breeze on you cheek. Imagine as more realistic picture of your secret place as possible. Now come to the beautiful glade in the middle of the forest. At the middle of the glade is your personal place for rest. That can be the house, tent, a warm pool or anything that will make you relaxed and happy. Enter your private place and feel your self relaxing and recharging.
Whenever you are exhausted or under a stress, come to your secret place and spend there 15-20 minutes. Imagine that your body is relaxing and filling with energy. Imagine your mind without any worry or obligation. Whenever you are mentally or emotionally exhausted come to your secret private place and recharge your batteries.
Remember to keep your private place private. It will not be a secret and private if you tell the right description of it to the others. Simply keep all the power of that place to yourself. Let other people design their own private secret place. If you exercise secret place meditation often you will increase the power of visualization. Better visualization of your secret place will make it more powerful and protecting. The strength of the mental picture of your secret place and sensation that you experience are the key of success. Remember to keep the positive approach when visualizing and entering your private place.
