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?
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?
For many years I have suffered from panic disorder and PTSD, as well as sleepless nights, anxiety and depression. All these conditions get worse with the approaching holiday season.
Hi BR,I have a 16 yr old grand daughter who is frightened at night, can't sleep without a night light, and any small sound - even normal ones - causes her such anxiety, she has even asked her Dad to stay with her until she goes to sleep. This is fairly new.
I believe my insomnia comes from deep-rooted fears. I’m fearful but not what you’d call phobic. I do not fear leaving the house. And I do not have panic attacks. But I am a generally worried person, who sees the world as a dangerous place and whose fears keep me up at night.I believe I would have to have some guided imagery that addresses fears or lack of. Which do you suggest?
Okay, so ‘tis the season to be disheartened – at least for maybe about 20% of the population, most of whom live in Northern climes and are affected by the loss of available sunlight. About 6% of them are hit with an intense version of SAD, or Seasonal Affective Disorder. . .
Our 7-year-old daughter has been suffering from night terrors for years. She sometimes has 3 or 4 in one night and they can last for an hour or two. . .
My 12-year-old grandson is suffering from insomnia. When he closes his eyes, he sees very scary images, feels a lot of anxiety and stays awake most of the night. . .
Question: I usually fall asleep while listening to guided imagery. I know you’ve mentioned that’s okay, and you tell us the messages are still getting in and that we can benefit from them. Can you explain how that works?
I work in a nursing home where we always have confused people who are awake all night and sleep during the day. I’d love to use guided imagery for sleep or agitation. Which CD would be best for people with various types of dementia? Does guided imagery even work with brains that are damaged?
