Guided Imagery Makes All the Difference to This Accident Survivor with TBI

10 Mar

We got this feedback from an injury survivor with TBI (traumatic brain injury), after an accident she experienced three years ago. We were very grateful that she took the time to write this gracious, heartfelt note. 

Knowing as we do that TBI is often a frustrating, hard to manage condition, it’s very good to know that guided imagery really does provides some sufferers with relief.  Here is what she wrote:

Dear Mrs. Naparstek,

This is not a question – it’s a thank you. I suffered a Brain Injury three years ago. Shortly after the accident, in my desperation to find something soothing, I discovered your Guided Meditation for Traumatic Brain Injury.

I listened to this recording three times a day or more. It was the only thing I found that calmed and soothed me.

Three years later I still listen to it when I have a challenging day or have a setback with my injury. I almost feel like you’re my good friend now, who encourages me not to give up on my healing.

I just wanted to tell you thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I truly don't know what I would have done without your guided meditation.  I only wish I could give you as much as you have given me.

Healing thanks,
