Give Guided Imagery a Serious Try – Listen to the Whole Thing Once Through!

08 Aug

This was just posted on Amazon, and it’s a great reminder of how important it is to give guided imagery time to work its way into your psyche and have the desired impact, especially if you’re a hyper-adrenergized combat vet or general trauma survivor, who cannot get into it at first, because of being so vigilant and hyper-alert (and for good reason – you’re in a survival-based, biochemically induced alarm state, for heaven’s sake, and it doesn’t feel safe to relax at first….)  So please read this and remember to give it a little time.  You’ll be glad you did.  

Here’s the post:
This review is from: Meditations to Relieve Stress (Audio CD)

I really like all the CD's she has produced in this series.

I have shared these with others who weren't so enthused.  I think the difference was I was first introduced to these in a group therapy program.  It took until I had sat through one of the CD's before I could relax enough to let the program work.

This was done at a VA Medical Center and it was my fellow vets that helped me drop my guard enough for the program to work.
