I'm wondering about the most effective use of affirmations. For example, one of mine is:
"Even though I sometimes have suicidal thoughts, I understand that these thoughts are symbolic of me wanting to make significant changes in how I feel about myself and how I see myself in the future. I allow myself to be the person that I have become and I accept where I am in life. I’m willing to grow and change.”
Your cancer treatment CDs were given to me eight years ago when I was undergoing chemotherapy. It took many times listening to it before the stars aligned and the desired effect occurred, releasing any concerns I had about the process. I purchased several other titles after that.
Now, I have a different life milestone to face.
I have been using your Lupus Healing meditation for very many years and have found it so helpful. I also used your guided imagery for preparing for surgery a couple of years ago.
At the moment I seem to be going through a post-viral kind of reaction after a possible COVID infection back in March. I would assume a lupus flare up - worse than any other! - only this time my husband is ill too.
Would you recommend the new Resisting Viral Infection to use now, or is there another guided imagery that would be more suitable considering the autoimmune disease?
My husband has thrown me away, no compassion, no love. Hateful. I have spent the last 26 years in various therapies with no help. I want to go Home.
I have been a throw away all my life. No tolerance for me. Apparently I have to pull myself up. People have no time for this. My heart is broken. I don't know what to do. Is there any Health Journeys help for me?
I've downloaded A Meditation to Help With Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue among others.
Unlike the other meditations I've downloaded, this sounds very general, nothing specific to fibromyalgia and CFS. Can you please confirm I've downloaded what I have purchased?
I am very interested in the effects of guided imagery on people who have been traumatized. I can see how guided imagery can be difficult to handle and create more anxiety. I can also see how it could be helpful when done in a safe way.
Do you have any suggestions or thoughts on how to teach guided imagery to a person with a history of trauma?
I’ve been listening to you since I discovered you in 2008. My clients and friends have also been listening, since I often bring a boom box to the hospital or session and play a part of One of your CDs( that certainly dates me- the boom box and the CDs!) I think you knew my friend Bob, a social worker, and when his wife was going through a bone marrow transplant, she used your guided imagery. One social worker friend who got an immunization induced variant of shingles couldn’t sleep until I brought over your guided imagery. She jokes about going to bed with Bella.
Could you please share if you have content specific to grief? My daughter's best friend (13) committed suicide.
The mother is also my best friend. I’m looking for other ways to help them both through the grief process.
In the past few weeks, we've received a flood of questions about COVID-19 and what audios we recommend to help deal with the nerves and anxiety produced by this outbreak.
Starting around Thanksgiving, we get a big uptick of questions from people who want to give something that they hope will be helpful and meaningful to someone they care about… in other words, some guided imagery. Here’s an early sampling. Unless told otherwise, we change the names to protect privacy:
