  1. 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 She has since withdrawn from interacting with the family.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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  4. Exciting New Research on Guided Meditation for Pandemic Stress, Dementia, and PTSD!!

    Exciting New Research on Guided Meditation for Pandemic Stress, Dementia, and PTSD!!

    The databases for mind-body research on guided imagery and meditation just keep on growing, I’m happy to report. There’s a steady growth of well designed, randomized clinical trials that yield promising-to-robust results.

    And – be still my heart! - there’s now enough of a cache of respectable research to generate systematic reviews, meta-analyses, scoping reviews, bubble maps, the works. This, people, is a significant step up.

  5. 1988-1992: Using Whatever or Whoever Is at Hand :)

    1988-1992:  Using Whatever or Whoever Is at Hand :)

    Back in the late 80’s, when I was writing our first batch of 7 illness-specific guided imagery audiotapes, I felt I was on pretty solid ground with the psychological and emotional impact of a disease, but I needed expert, seasoned medical consultation on how each disease behaved in the body, all the way down to the cellular level – what got it started and how the body instinctively worked to heal it, as well as the symptoms involved, and dynamics of the treatment process.

    I knew I had to get it right, and independent research was only going to take me so far. But I had a terrible time getting physicians to talk to me about this

  6. 1988: Pitching an Audio Get Well Card in Biz-Speak

    1988:  Pitching an Audio Get Well Card in Biz-Speak

    So, now, it’s 1988, and the Chemo guided imagery tape is still a smash hit at University Hospitals of Cleveland. By now, I’ve moved my private practice from Washington DC to NE Ohio. My husband is Dean of Case Western Reserve’s Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, and I’m quietly seeing clients and doing my part as “The Lovely Mrs. Dean”, hosting many, many, many dinner parties and receptions.

  7. 1987: Bullied into Making Our First Guided Imagery Tape

    1987:  Bullied into Making Our First Guided Imagery Tape

    Has it really been 30 years since we got this mind-body audio adventure rolling?  I’ve been reminiscing about our very humble beginnings.  And making what eventually became the first Health Journeys cassette tape. 

    Sometime around 1986-7, a woman I’m going to call Bonnie booked an appointment with my psychotherapy practice. She was looking for help with fighting stage 4 breast cancer and gearing up for chemotherapy.

  8. University Hospitals of Cleveland Says *Thank You!!* to All Its Employees with the Health Journeys App

    University Hospitals of Cleveland Says *Thank You!!* to All Its Employees with the Health Journeys App

    This week, we’re putting the spotlight on University Hospitals of Cleveland and their major initiative to thank employees for the effort, dedication, and self-sacrifices made month over month.

    It all started in 1988: UHHS was the very first major institution to request a calming, reassuring guided imagery tape for chemotherapy patients in the waiting room — they took a chance on us, and in effect, launched us and gave us legitimacy in the world of traditional health care.

    And in August 2018, the Connor Integrative Health Network of University Hospitals of Cleveland launched a customized streaming page of a dozen stress-relieving, empowering, procedure-easing meditations for providers, staff, patients, and their very own selves.

    Out with the Old You, In with the New You, and This Imagery Shows How...

    The unpredictability and change we experienced last year threw a lot of things into the air. Some we juggled with aplomb (maybe even surprising ourselves?), some we worked around, some we’re still waiting on to come back down...

    But I’ll bet those muscles of flexibility and adaptation we’ve been exercising have resulted in some pretty noteworthy gains, especially when we look back through the lens of self-reflection —how did we handle such-and-such a challenge? What new ways did we find to get to a solution?
