Woman Reports Guided Imagery a Godsend for Severe Depression

14 Sep

"A friend had used guided imagery recordings to help her through her battle with cancer and lent them to me when I was going through a very rough time.  I was suffering from severe depression.  I had days when I could not get out of bed.  I considered suicide."

"Listening to my friend’s CDs saved my life and gave me the gift of the only refuge from the depression I had at that difficult time – even though they were for cancer.  Everything about them suited me - the words, voice, and accompanying soft music were a balm against the agonies in my soul.  My gratitude can't be sufficiently expressed. A thousand thanks."

[Ed. Note.  We’re delighted this worked out, but generally we recommend the Depression imagery and leave the Cancer imagery to oncology issues!]
