Is okay that I go to my happy place when I meditate? Or do I need an absolute clear head?

Apparently there is no such thing as an absolute clear head. 🙂 Your happy place is fine, but if you become distracted, as we humans do, you can use breath to come back in focus.

I think meditation is very personal, so if going to your happy place to calm down works, then that is meditation for you 🙂 an absolute clear head is pretty impossible, I just try to actively push away the negative thoughts as they come up and focus on the calm.

I think you can do both. Start with a clear head and end up in your happy place in the end. I believe they work hand and hand. Clearing your mind opens you up later.

I don't see what's wrong with going to your happy place, but I would definitely try mixing it up to see what happens as a result. By allowing space, thoughts, ideas and insights you never would normally have can emerge. Good luck!

I think it is OK! A good way to get into meditation is to use visualisations, I don't see how going to your happy place is any different than that. Try to picture it as vividly as you can, the colours, the smells… I think it's a great way to set your mind to some rest and pause. Best!

There are diffirent kinds of meditation and i think going your happy place is one of them. If it is good for you, feel you calm, happy, focus etc. You should keep going it.

Given that my head seems so often empty, and I struggle to find my happy place I am extremely grateful to have thoughts that are even positive. I've only been meditating with breathing for a short time but tonight the meditation practice play soothing music while I started my breathing
It brought me to a place of gratitude for all that I have.
I'm often cynical and negative. I've attempted unsuccessfully to break these bad habits. Tonight I feel that I made a step forward.
