About the Author

Belleruth Naparstek, LISW, BCD Psychotherapist, author and guided imagery pioneer Belleruth Naparstek is the creator of the popular Health Journeys guided imagery audio series. Her first book, Staying Well with Guided Imagery (Warner) is a widely used primer on imagery and healing. Her second book, Your Sixth Sense (Harper Collins) has been translated into 9 languages and called one of the most thoughtful and sophisticated looks at imagery and intuition. Her latest book on imagery and posttraumatic stress, Invisible Heroes: Survivors of Trauma and How They Heal (Bantam Dell), won the Spirituality & Health Top 50 Books Award and was released in paperback January of 2006. Highlighted in the 20th anniversary edition of their seminal book, Courage to Heal, Ellen Bass and Laura Davis call Invisible Heroes, the most useful book for trauma survivors to be published in the last decade . As Prevention Magazine noted, she has been quietly creating an underground revolution among mainstream health and mental health bureaucracies, by persuading major institutions such as the U.S. Veteran s Administration, the U.S. Dept of Defense, Kaiser Permanente, Blue Shield of California, United Health Care, Oxford Health Plan, scores of pharmas and nearly 2000 hospitals and recovery centers to distribute her guided imagery recordings, in many instances free of charge to recipients. Recently she has been developing military-friendly resources with the help of the U.S. Army and the Ft. Sill Resiliency Center, and DCoE (Defense Centers of Excellence) has declared guided imagery one of their Twelve Promising Practices. Her audio programs have been involved in over two dozen clinical trials, with nearly a dozen studies completed to date. Efficacy has been established for several psychological and medical challenges, most recently for military sexual trauma and combat stress at Duke University Medical Center/Durham Veterans Administration Hospital. Naparstek received both undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Chicago. She maintained her psychotherapy practice for over 30 years and for several years taught graduate students at The Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, Case Western Reserve University. Earlier in her career, she supervised psychiatry residents at Cambridge Hospital/Harvard Medical School and was Chief of Consultation & Education at the Woodburn Center for Community Mental Health in Fairfax County, VA. She also did a brief stint as a musical comedy actress at Second City and The Tip Top Tap of the Allerton Hotel in Chicago, and says that her musical comedy skills sometimes come in handy for teaching.

Format: Audio CD
Naparstek did an amazing job when she created this CD. Not just with the words she chose but also with the music. By listening to the CD, you are meditating upon words that are enhanced with the music. I believe this gives the CD a more powerful impact. I never really thought about listenting to a motivational CD. I really didn't think I needed it. But i'm very glad that I took a friend's advice because this CD has really helped me with my self-confidence. and not just with that but also I feel that i can focus better. I also haven't felt any anxiety since i started to listen to it. I started off listening to it every night before I went to bed. Now i probably just listen to it once a week. It's a great CD I hope you try it!

I have found this CD to improve my overall daily state of mind. I find that I am less stressed on a daily basis and my ability to make quick and reliable decisions has also improved. Simply put; I feel more serene.

This meditation and guided imagery session is extremely helpful for reducing anxiety and particularly performance anxiety. True to its title, it also helps to improve self-confidence. I find it useful to listen at night, as I am falling asleep. Just as Belleruth suggests, I find the thoughts repeating in my mind as I go through my day, calming and encouraging me. I have several of Belleruth's products (e.g., Grief, and Wellness) and I highly recommend all of them.

This CD is similar to the guided meditation to help you sleep, also by Be. Naparstak, and I have found both to be very helpful, after, as she suggests on the CD, listening for several weeks, as I have. The imagery and music are somewhat alike, as well as the music, but, just different enough to carry you through and support you as you continue to listen. I do fall asleep faster, and I feel I sleep a little better, I pick it up from time to time, especially when very stressed; the cofidence CD will take longer for me, but I feel stirrings that it is working as it should-on an individual basis. I would recommend these two CDs, but all should realize that all health aids work in relation to how much you want them to work, and how many brick walls you have to knock down. I plan on ordering at least two more of her health journeys, I wish you success with any you try.

A Meditation to Help You Improve Self-Confidence and Reach Peak is a great guided meditation. I have heard stronger meditation messages, but this one is gentle and soothing. I like Belleruth Naparstek voice and would buy some of her other meditation CD's.

I LOVE Bellaruth... I have several of her CD's. (If you're having surgery listen to that CD... huge help!!!) Her voice is soothing without a lot of ups and downs in tone, pitch, volume, which can be VERY distracting and jarring (I've tossed many a CD's for this very issue!) The introduction can be skipped, as is a separate track, after you've heard it once (hit 'forward' or 'next' on your CD player). I originally bought her PTSD meditation/affirmations CD and it was wonderful! She chooses her words carefully, doesn't tell you how/where to sit/lie, let's YOU figure out how you're best comfortable... she also doesn't do the standard, "... relax your toes, feet, legs..." etc. After all, not everyone has toes, feet or legs, eh? She has provided a great service for anyone with, so called, 'mental health' challenges. Thank you Ms. Naperstack, you've brought me a great deal of peace and relief.
