Someone just pointed out this comment on Amazon Ė itís about our guided imagery for posttraumatic stress (Healing Trauma), where you enter your own broken heart, have a look around at the landscape, (which represents symptoms) and then travel under it to a deeper part of the self that is whole, beautiful and indestructible.  

This imagery doesnít work for everyone, but it does for a lot of people Ė people who are rebounding from all sorts of ugly, traumatic situations - and when it does, it really does, and thatís a beautiful thing.  And yes, making you cry is part of the healing.  

So the HJ staff says thanks to Nikoo from Connecticut for reminding us of the impact this imagery often has.

5.0 out of 5 stars  Getting into the heart, October 15, 2013

This review is from: Healing Trauma: Guided Imagery for Posttraumatic Stress (Health Journeys) (Audio CD)

I've been through therapy and listen to Tara Brach and Sharon Salzberg who have a lighthearted and practical way about them. I work with mindfulness but one thing I've had issue with though is "loving kindness". It's been very difficult for me to touch into my deeper compassion for others and a safe place for myself. This guided meditation got me there. It's amazing and will make you cry.

Dear Nikoo, It always touches me when someone finds something which is healing to add to what they are already doing, especially when it involves the opening of the heart. I have also found Belleruth's imagery for healing trauma to be a powerful catalyst for keeping my heart open and engaged in loving myself through the layers of work in therapy and survival in day to day world. Good luck to you as you continue to heal and make changes in your life.
Warm wishes,
Lynne Newman
