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:
I’m 65, just took up golf, and everyone plays better than I do. This is rough on my concentration and confidence. What do you suggest?
Do you have something for a golfer who took up the sport at 65? I am nervous when playing with better players and that keeps me from playing as well as I can. -M
I’m a bloated, fatigued, moody, peri-menopausal mess too much of the time! What do you suggest for this situation??
I am currently in perimenopause and have severe hormone fluctuations .... even with Exercise and a very healthy diet, I still feel so bloated, fatigued, moody and awful during certain times of the month ... what meditation/hypnosis would you recommend for this situation?
I attended a PTSD workshop of yours. I’m wondering how one can interpret the symbols that may appear during an imagery exercise. For example, in one guided imagery exercise, you asked us to imagine someone or something giving us a present. So, a black stone in a little box was my gift. How can I know what that may mean? Or is it always highly personal? Are there resources you can suggest?
My father has suffered from dementia for years. He no longer has clarity in his mind and does not recognize me or my brother. He lives in a special care facility where he gets good care.
The staff recently told me that he was becoming more agitated and sleepless during the night. As a result, he is extremely tired and confused during the day.
Any suggestions as to what kind of tools might help him, or will nothing reach him at this point?
