    Ask BR: What Do You Suggest To Help With the Lingering Effects of Gaslighting and Low Self-Esteem/Co-Dependency

    I would like to know which guided imagery audio you’d recommend:   Im a 72-woman single woman, doing well, but trying to soften the edges of having lived with a sociopath, and being raised by a narcissistic mother.  ...Still lingering effects of gaslighting and low self-esteem/co-dependency. 

    Thanks!

  2. Ask BR: How Can I Have a Loving, Lasting Relationship When I Believe I Will Always Be Let Down?

    Ask BR: How Can I Have a Loving, Lasting Relationship When I Believe I Will Always Be Let Down?

    I was adopted within my family as a baby.  It all came to light when I was 16.  I'm now 48.  My siblings and cousins seem to hold a grudge against me, because I was adopted and they believe that I had a better upbringing than they did.  I feel I'm paying for the family's decision that I had nothing to do with. I have no trust or faith in anyone, as I believe I will always be let down. How do I stop this pain and actually have a loving relationship that will last?  I am about to get my fourth divorce. I hurt all the time. Thanks.

  3. An ASK BR: How Can I Call My Body My Oldest Friend when I Feel Betrayed by It?

    An ASK BR: How Can I Call My Body My Oldest Friend when I Feel Betrayed by It?

    This is an issue we get a lot.  Many of BR’s guided imagery narratives refer to the listener’s body as “my oldest friend and steadiest companion”.  It’s deliberately in there to help form or reinstate a feeling of alliance with the body, as opposed to seeing it as the opponent to overcome, or something that’s let us down or even betrayed us.  Sometimes a first reaction to this phrase is, “You gotta be kidding” or “Oldest friend? We’re barely on speaking terms!” Here’s one of those reactions and BR’s response, suggesting why it might be something to consider…

  4. Ask BR: Any Suggestions for an 8-Year-Old Who Was Recently Almost Hit by a Fast-Moving Truck?

    Ask BR: Any Suggestions for an 8-Year-Old Who Was Recently Almost Hit by a Fast-Moving Truck?

    I am looking for Guided Imagery for an 8-year-old girl who is now living with her Grandparents. Her mother is severely mentally ill and this child suffered multiple traumatic experiences while in her care. She is now doing well with her grandparents, who are good caretakers and who love her very much.

    A recent incident occurred in which she was riding her scooter and was nearly hit by a fast-moving truck. Her uncle yelled to warn her, and this seems to have set her back. Her reaction was to panic. She has since withdrawn from interacting with the family. This is a shame, because she was doing so well.

  5. Ask BR: After Breakups I Experience Separation Anxiety, Obsessive Thoughts, & Anger. How Can I Handle Them Better?

    Ask BR: After Breakups I Experience Separation Anxiety, Obsessive Thoughts, & Anger.  How Can I Handle Them Better?

    Hi Belleruth

    Which of your CDs would you recommend for handling breakups better? When a woman ends a romantic relationship I get separation anxiety, depression, obsessive thoughts, and anger. Part of this is connected to feeling unloved and unwanted as a child. I am taking a time out from dating to address these issues.

  6. Ask BR: I've Been Having Unsettling Dreams Since Starting Your Healing Trauma Audio. Is This Normal?

    Ask BR:  I've Been Having Unsettling Dreams Since Starting Your Healing Trauma Audio. Is This Normal?

    Hello. At the guidance of my therapist, I’ve purchased and downloaded Belleruth’s Healing Trauma and I’m on day 9. I’ve been having unsettling dreams the last three consecutive nights - not nightmares, but not pleasant either, all of a very similar nature. Is this a normal part of the process that I should just be patient with and continue? Or should I do something else? Any suggestions?

  7. Ask BR: How Can I Get The Most Out Of Using Affirmations, And What’s The Difference Between The Subconscious And Unconscious Mind?

    Ask BR: How Can I Get The Most Out Of Using Affirmations, And What’s The Difference Between The Subconscious And Unconscious Mind?

    Hi Belleruth,

    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.”

  8. Ask BR: How Can I Mentally Prepare To Become My Wife’s Primary Caregiver After Her Neurodegenerative Disease Diagnosis?

    Ask BR: How Can I Mentally Prepare To Become My Wife’s Primary Caregiver After Her Neurodegenerative Disease Diagnosis?

    Dear Belleruth,

    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.

  9. Ask BR In September: COVID-19 and Virus Worries, Lupus, & Successful Surgery

    Ask BR In September: COVID-19 and Virus Worries, Lupus, & Successful Surgery

    Hi Belleruth,

    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?

    Thank you!
    Andrea

  10. Ask BR: Rediscovering Self-Worth, Reclaiming Your Future After Abandonment

    Ask BR: Rediscovering Self-Worth, Reclaiming Your Future After Abandonment

    Dear BR,

    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?
