I have just received your CD on Guided Imagery Relaxation: The Catholic
Way. I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am that I sent for
this CD. Your calm voice really has an appealing touch to a relaxing mode
and most of all I love the prayers towards the end of the first session.
I have yet to listen to the 2nd part. Thank you so much for your affirmation
to the Catholic faith.
I ordered the relaxation CD a week or so ago, and just listened to track
2 last night. What a wonderful CD!! I have suffered from panic/anxiety on
and off for almost 30 years. All of the relaxation CDs I have purchased are
sort of new-age-y, as you mentioned somewhere on this website. This incorporates
so many wonderful prayers and Catholic direction and meditation. I just loved
it. . . . It is such an uplifting CD. I was very discouraged by all the
new age relaxation methods, including yoga.
I received the CD on Thursday (it arrived in 2 days!). It is absolutely a
beautiful product. The photograph is beautiful and the guided imagery itself
is, I feel, a kind of work of art. I am happy it is embedded with a Catholic
and TRUTHFUL message. I realized from what you have said that so much of
this kind of thing is embedded with this modern spirituality-type
stuff. It treats us as though we were the center of the universe. Thats
actually a pretty awful place to be, I think.
One other thing - when I first listened to the CD, one of my
two cats was in the room with me. I did not have my eyes closed but wanted
to listen to it through first, for some reason. I noticed the behavior of
my cat. My cat was lying on her back with her eyes closed and her ears straight
up. Her paws tucked under and together, almost like she was praying. She
seemed MESMERIZED by the sound of your voice. Shes a fidgety little
thing but she didnt move a muscle for the full half hour. My two birds
who are usually twittering in the backround also were silent. The sound of
your voice (Im assuming it was your voice) filled the room with a peace
unusual for this place because usually the radio is going. I think it was
beneficial to all of us. Im going to try to start listening to it
frequently - sitting still is VERY hard for me. My mind seems to be racing
and thinking constant negative thoughts.
