  1. If You’re a COVID Long-Hauler or Worried About Re-Infection, This Ask BR Will Interest You!

    If You’re a COVID Long-Hauler or Worried About Re-Infection, This Ask BR Will Interest You!

    Belleruth got this question last week, and our whole customer service team has gotten several others just like it, so we decided to post the whole Q and A. 

    Evidently anywhere from 10-30% of people who’ve been sick with Covid report “Long Covid”, and a recent study in JAMA Network Open reported that out of 150 outpatients who initially had a mild COVID-19 infection, about one-third reported persistent symptoms as long as nine months after the illness. So, more and more we’re realizing that this is affecting a lot of people.

  2. Another Ask BR: Does Crying & Worrying Make Cancer Worse?

    Another Ask BR: Does Crying & Worrying Make Cancer Worse?

    A lot of people with a diagnosis of cancer worry that if they’re not being upbeat and “positive” 24/7, they’ll make their disease worse. So, they put themselves into an emotional straight-jacket, trying (and failing) to orchestrate their mood and control their feelings. On the contrary, knowing and expressing true feelings does not make people sicker. When we match up in what we think, feel, say and do, our energy is aligned and we have more personal power to tackle our challenges.

  3. A New Ask BR: What's the Latest Intel on the Effectiveness of Guided Imagery for Fighting Cancer?

    A New Ask BR: What's the Latest Intel on the Effectiveness of Guided Imagery for Fighting Cancer?

    Belleruth got this great question from a man studying up on his options for dealing effectively with stage 4 colon cancer, should his chemotherapy stop working.

    We thought this was a great opportunity to offer this Q & A as an update to everyone, and to share some general info about integrative strategies and treatments in oncology (or CAM, as it used to be called – Complementary & Alternative Medicine).  So, Alan graciously gave us permission to use his question. (As is our policy, that’s not his real name).  So read on, Dear Reader!

  4. 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.

    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!

  6. 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!

  7. 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?
