Guided imagery is a holistic mind-body technique that consists of healing words and hypnotic images, set to soothing music, to help with treating depression naturally. Repeated listening once or twice a day for 2-3 weeks ensures maximum impact. A separate track of affirmations shows how to relax in a briefer format, with positive statements designed for listening on the go or even while driving.
This Health Journeys depression meditation was written and narrated by noted mind-body, holistic health pioneer Belleruth Naparstek, scored to the immersive music of Steven Mark Kohn, and produced by the Cleveland Orchestra's Bruce Gigax. The soothing, hypnotic narrative evokes imagery of the heavy fog of depression lifting, as tamped down energy is liberated and released, so that you can reunite with your own inner strength and again feel hope, love, motivation and possibility. For those who wish to try treating depression naturally, before turning to medication with side effects, this is worth trying first.
