Program: Absent Healing
Absent healing, or ’distance healing’Ě is something like praying for another person, in a very specific way. To begin, we get in touch with love at the deepest level within us that we can. From that place, we ask that grace be extended to our friend or loved one, for their highest good.
We can do this process for anyone, no matter where they are, because pure love goes beyond the physical dimension. That’s why it’s called “absent healing”.
Program: Clearing Cancer
Three guided meditations cover three different parts 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.
Program: Daily Focus
Daily Focus allows you to choose any personal quality, experience it within you, and bring it into your daily routine. Easy to do, peaceful, and inspiring, with gentle narration and background music.
Program: Forgiving Your Father – Healing About Your Dad
Program: Forgiving Your Mother – Healing About Your Mom
Was your mother perfect? Chances are, your relationship with your mother has been a mixed bag, because most parents try their best, but have faults inherited from their parents. So, we tend to receive some combination of love and anger, patience and impatience, caring and neglect
Program: Good Boundaries
In this guided imagery meditation, Good Boundaries helps you see clearly how, when, and where other people invade your private space. It helps you consider the steps you’d need to take to correct the problem. And most importantly, it shows you how to operate in clarity and protection from your own center. When you operate from your center, you naturally create good, healthy boundaries, and attract people who respect you.
Program: Healing Traumatic Memory: Guided Imagery for PTSD
You don’t have to live with PTSD forever. In this guided imagery program, with gentle narration and soothing background music, you’ll have the opportunity to heal painful memories without reliving them. You’ll visit the past through a protective filter to clear out negativity, without stepping into it again. You’ll be able to do this in a way that’s safe, comfortable, and effective.
Program: Heart Meditations
Your spiritual heart is often the most underutilized part of the human body-mind system, yet it offers enormous potential. It allows you to receive love from above, and share unconditional love with others. It’s also the bridge between your conscious mind and your Higher Self. You can learn to access all the spiritual support and guidance you’ll ever need by focusing in your own spiritual heart, and opening to receive.
Heart Meditations includes three guided imagery programs, each of which gently guides you into your spiritual heart, and then helps you to explore a different aspect of your heart-space. The meditations are warm, healing, and inviting, encouraging you to connect deeply within, and let go of anything in the way.
Program: Immune Support: Envisioning Good Health
The body-mind component of health is all about the way your thoughts and feelings influence your body’s ability to ward off and recover from illness. The way you think and feel about yourself can effect immune response, digestion, reproductive functioning, and more. Use this program to focus on your body and your health in a very positive way, adjust your thinking, and help your entire system to become brighter and stronger.
Program: Lighten Up! Stop Being So Hard On Yourself
If anyone has ever told you to “lighten up”, you know how unhelpful that suggestion can be! But being hard on ourselves is a serious problem that bears looking into. It keeps us unhappy, makes us not much fun to be around, and tends to keep us from being successful — or enjoying success even if we have it.
But as with many negative patterns, this one is often unconscious, so it’s difficult to get a handle on. That’s what this program is all about — bringing that pattern to the surface so you can recognize it, and giving you tools to release it.
Program: Love Your Body-Heal Your Body Image
In this gentle guided meditation by Max Highstein, voice artist Kitzie Stern guides you on a journey to a lovely, secluded setting, full of healing energy. There you’ll have the opportunity to view your body with objectivity and neutrality, be at peace with yourself, and see your own body — and yourself — with compassion and appreciation. You’ll let go of negative messages you may have repeated to yourself over time, and affirm new, positive ones. And you’ll have time to listen to what your body has to tell you about your next steps.
Program: Meet Your Guide
Visit with your personal guide — a wise and compassionate being available to help you solve problems, move forward along your path, and fulfill your purpose in life. Your guide is already aware of you, ready to help you, and even knows when you’re about to do this meditation! Learn to access your higher guidance system, and change your life!
Program: Opening To Wealth
If you’re exploring this program, it’ôs fair to assume you’re not as wealthy as you’d like to be. The question is, what keeps you that way?
If you believe that the economy, the government, other people, or outer circumstances keep you from being more wealthy, then there may be little you can do to change the situation. However, if you’re willing to consider the possibility that something within you is keeping you from becoming more wealthy, then you’re in a good position to make a shift. And if you’d be willing to consider that there is untapped creativity within you that you can use to become more wealthy, that’s even better.
So in this program you’ll let go of fixed beliefs, negativity, and darkness inside — anything standing between you and wealth. And you’ôll open to wealth in new ways. All to help you become the most well-rounded, grounded, and happy human being you can be, living a rich, abundant life.
Program: Overcoming Shyness
Shyness can keep us isolated and alone. The prospect of being with new people seems daunting, and our limited attempts at socializing can be painful, so we decide it’s better not to try, and stay with the few people we’re comfortable with, or the dog or cat. As we loose the ability to connect with others, and our world becomes smaller and smaller.
Feelings of shyness are based upon deeply held beliefs that others won’t like us, won’t understand us, that we have little in common, and if we reach out we’ll ultimately be rejected and hurt. For shy people, fear of humiliation and shame is often the bottom line.
Program: Relaxation for Nurses & Caregivers
For those who spend their energy serving the physical need of others, periodic rest and recovery is crucial. We’re at our best when we’re well rested and relaxed, and when it comes to restoration of body and soul, ther’s no substitute for a plenty of sleep and time off work. But when we’re over-worked, when rest time is in short supply, or when our stresses are especially high, short periods of deep relaxation can help. This is a short one minute Introduction to Deep Relaxation for Nurses & Caregivers without frequency following.
Program: Releasing Bitterness and Opening to Love
Bitterness is a state of mind that colors the way we see others and ourselves, and limits our potential for loving relationships. When we are repeatedly injured or beaten down by life, we adopt a bitter, cynical, and pessimistic point of view as a way of protecting ourselves from further disappointment: “If I expect misfortune, then when it happens I won’t be blindsided or devastated by it.”
This “armoring” serves a purpose for a time, until we can recover and become stronger. But at some point we have to reopen to the possibility that the world is a good place, and people can be kind. Otherwise we’ll continue to attract disappointing experiences, and never be able to fully appreciate the positive ones.
Program: Releasing Fear
When fear takes over, it impairs our judgment, makes us miserable, and causes us to make poor decisions. This hour-long program offers three lessons with introductions to reduce your fear, and approach life in a clearer, more fully present and comfortable way.
Program: Releasing Judgment & Embracing Life
Program: Releasing Pain
The same physical conditions that cause one person to suffer can have little or no effect in another. Although the causes for pain may be physical, as often as not it can have an emotional, mental, or spiritual component. So it’s always a good idea to examine the situation from all sides. Guided imagery has been used in pain management for decades, to do just that.
Program: Sacred Journeys
Filled with rich texture and gentle emotion, this piece stands beautifully on its own, and does indeed take the listener on a sacred inner journey. Ideal for healing, meditation, massage, or quiet listening, complexity and richness continues to emerge and unfold over repeated listening.

Program: Saying Goodbye: Healing the Loss of a Loved One
Program: Self Esteem – Healing Waterfall
Self esteem is all about the way you value, appreciate and treat yourself. If you truly believe, without a doubt, that you’re a good, worthy, and deserving person, then you’ll tend to attract people who will value and appreciate you, and treat you well. But if you believe on some level that you are bad, unworthy, and undeserving, then you’ll attract and opt into situations where you’re treated indifferently, or worse.
