  1. Asthma Affirmations Help With COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)

    We get requests for guided imagery for COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) but don’t have anything that specifically targets this condition.  We pretty much knew that anything that relaxed the listener and imagery of opened lungs could make symptoms better, but we were nonetheless gratified to read this post….

    To BR and Health Journeys:

    The [Asthma] affirmations work well for me, [who] suffers from COPD.  I feel better, my breathing is more relaxed. I listen to this at night and when I wake up during the night.  It has helped me to take my drugs as allies.

    I even had a dream of being in a beautiful hall with molded ceilings. There were the friends, and a friendly healthy, strong and vital guide put his arm on my shoulder to comfort me.

    I woke up realizing that that luxurious room was my lungs feeling healed. Thank you!

    With all my encouragements,
    Michael from UK

  2. Healing the Shattering Moment of Hearing a Life-Threatening Diagnosis

    We just came across this letter from a decade ago, describing the healing impact guided imagery can have on old trauma we aren’t even aware we’re carrying.  It doesn’t happen this dramatically all the time – usually the gains are more subtle and incremental, and kind of sneak up on you.  But it happens often enough, especially when the timing is right and a lot of inner work has already been done.
     
    We thought this was a hopeful reminder.  So, here it is, with a little bit of paring down and a switch from the specific to the generic when the identifying info was too specific:

  3. A Son's Healing Prayer for His Mother

    This prayer was written by Eitan Baum for the healing of his mother, Naomi Chava bat Chaya Hendel in Menachem Av of the year 5771 or 2011 by the Gregorian Calendar.  It is very much in the style and wording of Jewish prayer.

    Wayfarers Prayer upon Embarking on the Journey of Healing

    May it be Your will, merciful and healing Father, to lead me on this journey in peace, to accompany me in peace, to stand by my side and to give me life, health, happiness and peace.

    Give me the strength to bear this cancer with dignity, and the power to endure it and be healed.  Protect me from pain, sadness and despair, and from all the discomforts that are drawing near. Send skill, wisdom and understanding to my doctors and nurses, Your faithful messengers, to sow goodness and light in my body. Help the chemicals accurately do their work, rooting out disease and bringing compassion to the healthy parts of my body making room for the good to strengthen and take root.

  4. Does Immune Cell Guided Imagery Have To Be So Warlike & Violent?

    Question:

    Hi. This is a question for Belleruth. At the suggestion of a friend, I've been listening to the Immune System  guided imagery available to Kaiser Permanente members.  I love your voice and music, but I've been changing the imagery so that it's not warlike/violent.

    For example, I imagine the fighter cells putting a golden light vortex around infected cells, bad bacteria, viruses, etc. and then sending the light into the earth.

    I told my friend how I've changed the imagery and she wondered if that imagery would work since the immune system actually is warlike and violent.

    What do you think?

  5. From Perfect Health to Deadly Emboli, Feeling Betrayed by Body

    Question:  

    Dear Belleruth:  

    I have followed your work for many years and even had the privilege of taking a weekend workshop with you a few years ago.  

    I recently returned home after being hospitalized for bilateral pulmonary emboli following a moderate orthopedic injury.  Are there CD's or even simple images that will help my lungs heal, the clot be reabsorbed, and my body receive the medications both injected and oral with no side effects?  

    After experiencing the sudden onset of a life threatening condition, it is also harder to trust my body and return to a sense of safety and relaxation, especially when trying to sleep late at night.

  6. Tips to Protect Therapists from Taking on the Fears & Distress of Their Clients

    Question:
     
    Do you have any comments about therapists taking on somatizing the fears and anxieties of clients? Are there recommendations for therapists protecting themselves while working with clients in the altered state that guided imagery produces?

    Answer:

    This is more likely to happen to newbie therapists, before they get their boundaries in place, but this issue affects us all.  You want to aim to set your boundaries in such a way that you can still experience empathy and compassion, but without taking on the client’s pains and fears.  This balance is critical to being effective and to staying that way, without burning out.

  7. Asthma Affirmations Help With COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)

    We get a lot of requests for guided imagery for COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) but don’t yet have anything specifically targeted for this condition.  We knew that anything that relaxed the listener would make symptoms better, but we were nonetheless gratified to read this post where that notion is validated:

  9. Whiner Alert: Check Out This Amazing Dog and You’ll Be Cured!

    We got this wonderful email as part of a chain, and even though I never do this, I’m passing it along – it’s simply too terrific to miss.  Check it out:

    This is 'Faith'

    This dog was born on Christmas Eve in the year 2002. He was born with 3 legs - 2 healthy hind legs and 1 abnormal front leg which had to be amputated. He of course could not walk when he was born. Even his mother did not want him.

    His first owner also did not think that he could survive and he was thinking of 'putting him to sleep'. But then, his present owner, Jude Stringfellow, met him and wanted to take care of him. She became determined to teach and train this little dog to walk by himself.
