Calling Every Good Wish Home
Years ago, I went to a training for treatment of post traumatic stress through guided imagery with Belleruth Naperstak. Naperstak has written guided imagery CD’s that focus on about anything you might want to work on healing from anxiety, to sleep disorders, to diabetes and cancer. At this training, there were about 500 attendees sitting in chairs lined up, side by side in a large room. She started the training with a guided imagery that is written to evoke emotion with loving connectedness. It was a neutral guided imagery for stress reduction. Closing my eyes, I went there easily and found myself profoundly touched sobbing through the exercise as the imagery evoked deep emotion within me. The words have stayed with me and I find them healing when I need to remember how to touch that radiance of love from within me.
