The box

My box is a linen cedar chest that smells so good when you open and close it. My EMDR T taught me about the box and I use it between sessions. I put away the difficult things and promise to only bring them out when I'm with my regular T, or when I know I can handle it. She always makes me lock the box at the end of the session.

It has helped me a lot. But I never thought of putting my husband in the box! That's a great image with the arms and legs draped about.

Sometimes I have to sit on the box to get it fully closed. Mine has a lock and I have the only key.

I never thought I would like visual imagery but sometimes it really works for me.
