Dear Belleruth,

I would like to let you know about a unique way that Iíve been using your guided imagery CDís. First, let me say that they have been a lifeline for me, especially dealing with some unpleasant medical problems and the sudden death of my mother in September. Unfortunately, I was dealt another blow in December when my amazing tabby cat, Cody, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer after surgery to remove a tumor, his spleen, and part of his pancreas.  

Before I go any further, let me tell you a little bit about Cody. I adopted him from a shelter when he was 2 years old and heís now almost 14. He has a wonderful personality and absolutely loves people. One of his goals in life is to charm everyone he meets. When we lived in Cincinnati, one of his vets used to refer to him as the Cat Ambassador. He ís one of the few cats who actually likes being at the vet because people love on him and tell him how cute he is. We affectionately call him our snuggle slut.

My partner and I were heartbroken to learn that our beautiful little guy was so sick. After his surgery, we were told that he likely had only 4-8 weeks to live. The vet told us to spoil him rotten and feed him whatever we wanted.

He began getting snacks of tuna, salmon, and lots of cat treats. We also found out that he likes lentils, black beans, pudding, and ice cream. I wanted to spend as much time with him as possible while he was still feeling good. I started to lie with him on the couch and imagine that I was passing my love and positive energy into his body.

I was so distressed about having to face another devastating loss that I began doing your General Wellness CD every morning because I so like the imagery in it. Cody saw this as an opportunity to crawl on top of me for snuggling. This felt so good for both of us. I began to incorporate Cody into the imagery. In my imagination, we have been to the Dallas Arboretum, the Outer Banks of North Carolina, the Rocky Mountains, and the Portland rose gardens.

The CD imagery involves a healing light and cleansing breeze. Not only do I imagine the light and breeze cleansing my body and soul but I also imagine them destroying the cancer cells in Codyís body. The mist in the imagery helps boost our immune systems. I always feel that there is transfer of positive energy and love between us. We feel it in different ways but weíre both happy to share that time together. We do the General Wellness CD together almost every morning; itís our special time together.

Iím happy to report that it is now 5 months after Codyís surgery and he is doing great. He is still adorable, happy, playful, charming, affectionate, and obnoxious. He has far exceeded everyoneís expectations in terms of longevity. Our vet is amazed by him and has been in touch with the specialist who gave Cody the dire diagnosis; the specialist is amazed, too.

I have asked if they might have made a mistake in the diagnosis and was assured that the tumor definitely met the criteria for pancreatic cancer. Cody gets checked out by the vet every two weeks and has gotten perfect check ups every time. Plus, every time he goes to the vet clinic, he gets loved on by the vet and nurses, an experience he loves.

My partner and I know that a downturn could happen any time and very quickly but we are so happy and blessed to have had so much good time with our amazing tabby. I know that Cody has no real idea what Iím imagining as Iím listening to the wellness CD but I canít help but wonder if just maybe weíve been healing each otheróhe comforts my heart with happiness and pure goodness and Iím sending healing energy and love into his furry little body. It sounds a bit hokey but I have to believe that thereís something to it.

I thought you would enjoy hearing this story. I bet you never thought your CDís would be applicable to feline health. Thank you for helping Cody and I recover and heal.

Thank you for this story about Cody. My partner is a cat lover and I've come to love the two cats, Gracie and Sita, that live with us. It warms my heart to know that you've been sending healing energy to Cody and he's been doing better. I hold both of you in my heart and send you more healing and loving energy.

I thank you for this story. I too have a 14 year old cat Sammy, who has high thyroid, on a pill a day, and has advanced renal failure. I was told he would go very quickly from the last Vet appointment. Thant was April 4th 2013. And today is June 13th 2013. Sammy has gained a little weight and is still playing and eating well. I do Reiki healing for him and for myself. I was told that cats give healing Reiki to us and they( the cats) say we do OK but they are better at it than we are. I have several of BN CD's and find them very helpful.Any positive visualization is good. I visualize the healing Reiki as I send it out too.

What a lovely story about Cody. My thought is that the imagery helped you to focus your own healing energy and love in a way that benefitted Cody. I do believe that animals are very sensitive to our moods, intentions, and our energies, including intentional healing. A Reiki master I know who has worked on my own pets has said that the most effective way to be healing for our pets (in addition to proper care, of course) is to let, rather than force (challenging to do when we so wish that they heal). When in doubt, envision sending love and comfort.

Thank you for sharing your experience, and be well!
