Asthma Affirmations Help with COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)

13 Mar

We get occasional requests for guided imagery for COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) but don't yet have anything specifically targeted for this condition. We knew that anything that relaxed the listener would make symptoms better, but we were nonetheless gratified to read this post, where that assumption is validated:

Dear Health Journeys,

The [Asthma] affirmations work well for me, [who] suffers from COPD. I feel better and my breathing is more relaxed. I listen to this at night and when I wake up during the night. It has helped me to see my drugs as allies.

I even had a dream of being in a beautiful hall with molded ceiling. There were friends around me, and a friendly healthy, strong and vital guide put his arm on my shoulder to comfort me. I woke up realizing that that luxurious room was my lungs feeling healed. Thank you Belleruth!

With all my encouragements,

Michael from the UK
