Through Guided Imagery, the operating theater became a familiar place

07 Sep

Belleruth,

I just wanted to let you know how successful guided imagery was for me, and continues to be to me. On August 13, 2008 I was given new life by way of a quadruple by-pass. I listened to guided imagery for Pain, Surgery , Cardiac ICU and Cardiac Rehab.

Through Guided Imagery, the operating theater became a familiar place, with competent, compassionate professionals, all moving in sync to overcome the burden of four blockages (1 at 100%, 4 at 89%). The Cardiac ICU was not a hostile place, as the friendly faces found there did their level best to provide comfort and healing.

Today, just six days after the surgery, I am home with my family, still listening to these meditations, still opening my mind to the possibilities that now lay before me.

Respectfully, Brandon K.
