Guided Imagery Gets Her Off Prescribed Meds, but Does So Much More

17 Mar

We found this personal story about using guided imagery to help with withdrawal from prescribed medications, and it’s a wonderful example of the way guided imagery can have a positive impact, way beyond the original intention to clean up an inadvertent addiction. Check out what A. Baranowski had to say about this – it’s very encouraging.  

(Belleruth cracked a wide grin at the line she considers “highest praise” when this writer read some of the Q and A’s on our site and pronounced her “not a silly person”!!) 

Check it out:

I am currently withdrawing from several medications.  have found that this imagery is having an impact on parts of my life I never thought related to any drug, alcohol, recovery-related "problem."  

I am sleeping better, having some incredible experiences while listening, crying a lot (don't be scared!) yet, finding that this clears out a lot of things I have been avoiding for years. I am feeling good, open, willing to move on afterward.

About one or two days into listening I woke up feeling so great, and great in a way I don't remember for many, many, many years; in fact, so long ago as to almost have been forgotten. But, that "ability" was still there.

Belleruth Naparstek has a wonderful voice that I trusted and relaxed to immediately--hence the crying, the music is fabulous!! I go to some wonderful places, dig way, way back to feelings of goodness, strength, vulnerability, and have had some unexpected experiences.

Also, I visited the Health Journeys website, and I really like Belleruth’s attitude and common sense about some of the things people have asked her there. She is not a silly person!!

Anyway, highly recommended.  Listen, relax, enjoy, and be well!
