Feeling fried, limp? So exhausted, like running two marathons? Concerned about the future?
How to move past worry and exhaustion? How to move into a great future?
When Janis Silverman could find no meditations specific to her experience of breast cancer, she wrote her way to positive mental health, lower stress and less pain. Janis wrote more than one hundred guided imagery meditations, prayers and poems during her treatments. "These imagery meditations helped me see my healing and my future," said Silverman.
"I pictured love, light, restoring my health, healing, wellness, mending, mind and body, recovery, thriving, reenergizing, blossoming, and flourishing. Then I focused my thoughts on my tomorrow and planning my future. I celebrated the end of therapy and the new beginnings." Janis is sharing her imagery stories. Meditations in Recover helps a patient restore mind and body, to plan her future, to allow herself time to rest and heal physically and emotionally.
Visualizations of strength and courage accompany revitalization and needed self-care. Other meditations offer hope for renewed spirit to create the future. Imagery meditations guide a breast cancer patient to sort out feelings, question fears and negative thoughts, calm anxiety. Each guided imagery meditation lets the patient know that she is not alone. Janis Silverman, retired teacher, is the author of several education and counseling books, including, Imagine That! a book of guided imagery meditations for children. She lives near Charlotte, NC with her family.
