The mind-body component is a crucial part of the path to recovery in serious illness, and guided imagery has been used as part of cancer treatment for decades. This program utilizes guided imagery to focus on three different aspects of the healing process for cancer patients.
1) Clearing Your Cells With Love 16:00
2) Preparing For Treatment 14:00
3) Emotional Support For Healing 15:00
Each of these three guided meditations covers a different part of the recovery process. Healing music composed specifically for this program by Max Highstein accompanies the powerful script, beautifully voiced by Kitzie Stern. All of the qualities that made The Healing Waterfall an award winning bestselling meditation are present here, focused specifically on healing cancer. If you or someone you know is fighting cancer, you’ll want to be sure to have this program on hand.
ABOUT PART ONE: Clearing Your Cells With Love
Traditionally, guided imagery programs for treating cancer focused on stimulating the immune system with “warfare” imagery. A patient would visualize fighting their cancer with artillery blasts, laser guns, and other violent means to stimulate the immune system. But rather than add negativity to an already difficult situation, this program takes another approach.
In this guided meditation, you’ll spend time in a cozy room inside your own heart center, and send rays of healing light to cancer cells. Powered by love, the rays automatically seek out and eliminate cancer cells where every they may be, by making each cell realize “I don’t belong here”, and dematerialize of its own accord. Vibrant music and colorful imagery bring this program to life, making it dramatic and powerful.
ABOUT PART TWO: Preparing To Receive Treatment
Chemo therapy and radiation can be very challenging. But being mentally prepared and positively focused can make a huge difference in your experience. Use this meditation before, during, and after each treatment to optimize its effectiveness, and to make the experience as smooth and pain free as possible.
In this guided meditation, you’ll visualize the treatment entering your body and finding its way to the cancer quickly and easily, and efficiently eliminating it, all with a minimum of stress. Then you’ll then visualize your body receiving additional energy and support, to make up for the reserves spent in the healing process. Use this meditation to help your and mind and body make treatment as easy and effective as possible.
ABOUT PART THREE: Emotional Support While Healing
This guided meditation helps relieve emotional components that may have contributed to illness, and may be impeding healing. When you’re recovering from cancer, you need all the energy reserves your body can pull together to heal. Energy that is tied up in stored feelings of anger, sadness, or fear is energy that could otherwise be used to help your body heal. Freeing up that energy can make a big difference in your recovery.
In this tender and gentle guided imagery program, you’ll connect with your inner child to gain insight into any feelings you might be holding that could be getting in the way of your healing. Then you’ll have the opportunity to release those feelings and regain lost energy. The meditation leads you step by step, making the process simple and effective.
Sacred Journeys is Serenity's newest album. As the album was being created words like "relaxing," "meditative," and "healing" came to mind. As the title implies, it will take you on a musical journey, but not a normal journey. The music in this album will take you on a "sacred journey" to places one could only dream of.
Sleep Well Tonight
by Max Highstein
New From Serenity!
Enjoy a good night's sleep with this gentle inner journey. Take an evening walk along the beach to your secluded seaside cottage. Secure in your bed on the screened-in porch, enjoy a full body relaxation, and then let the waves lull you into dreamland. At the end of the inner journey the narration tapers off, and the waves continue for another 30 minutes.
And excerpt from this guided meditation for sleep:
"The ocean air feels so pleasant on your skin, and the smells of the ocean and scents of the blossoming trees nearby are softly intoxicating, beginning to make you a little drowsy. Soon you come to your cottage, open the screen door, and sit on the edge of the bed looking out at the sea and the sky.
The first stars have begun to come out, and you take some time to just sit there, and watch them appear, one by one, as last light of day fades, and the sky darkens to a deep velvet..."

2) Recovering & Clearing From Work
3) Letting Your Heart Guide Your Hands
4) Envisioning Your Ideal Practice
Clearing And Releasing From Work is designed to help you let go of stressful energies that may tend to accumulate in your body and energetic field as you work. We all have a natural empathic tendency to unconsciously pick up things from our clients, especially in times when we’re not well rested, or stressed for any reason. Taking time on a regular basis to do some personal clearing is an important part of staying healthy, balanced, and ready to give your clients your best.
Letting Your Heart Guide Your Hands will help you connect to your higher support, and intuitively draw upon it to offer your clients the best help you can provide, on all levels. You might find it especially helpful to do this meditation in your treatment room, before you begin your work day.
Envisioning Your Ideal Practice offers an overview of your work from a career standpoint. You can use this meditation to define for yourself how, where, for whom, and for how much pay you would most like to work, and help bring your ideals into reality.
