"REACHING OUT" CHILD ABUSE MONUMENT
1991 - 2014
DR. MICHAEL C. IRVING SCULPTOR/PSYCHOTHERAPIST

QUILT SQUARE FOR DISTANCING FROM THE PAIN

Move your mouse to use Linda's quilt square as a meditation pool.
Click on arrow below to choose music or sounds for your healing meditation.

Place the pain in a container.
See the container slowly getting
smaller and smaller.
As the container gets smaller see it moving further and further away.

Create safety and distance by visualizaing your abuser locked in a room or a cell.
See how weak and what a wimp they were to use a child.


 

See your pain as a ball
getting smaller and smaller.
See your pain as light
getting dimmer and dimmer.

Drop your abuse or your abuser in the ocean.


Shoot your abuse or your abuser into space.


Write down something about the pain
and throw it in a garbage can.



Remind yourself of the year today.
Recognize how long ago the abuse actually happened.
Allow yourself to count the years and feel the passage of time.
