The Coma Whisperer Meditation Calms
Watching your comatose loved one, without being able to get through, can be heart-wrenching. All you want to do is make things better. However, if you don’t know where to start, that can be really frustrating. In my book, The Coma Whisperer, you can get insights on how to use natural approaches to improve things. Why might this interest you as a TBI coma caregiver? Because even a simple thing might be the thing that improves life quality for your loved one.
In the subheading below called FREE Audio Recording Will Calm The Listener, you’ll read the explanation on how to use this program.
Why do I understand your frustration? From first-hand experience working with people in a coma, during stroke recovery, and PTSD, I know the importance of feeling calm. From a calm mental state, progress is possible. Why is progress easier from a calm mental state? Because usually, brain chemistry becomes more balanced when you intentionally calm your mind.
The Coma Whisperer Book Is Based On True Events
I wrote a book called The Coma Whisperer. In it, I share a story based on true events about eight-year-old Jonathan, my first coma client. Playing alone near the river at a family picnic, he inadvertently lost his balance and drowned. Paramedics revived him. However, he had massive brain damage. Though he experienced serious brain damage, he still had a will to survive. Why? He was a fighter! Having the will to fight drives a person to thrive even under dire circumstances!
My Personal Experiences Came In Useful
I first heard about Jonathan after he’d been comatose for five weeks. Intuitively, I felt inspired to go and see him. A Complementary Alternative Medicine (CAM) Stress Relief Coach, something drew me to him. I think he reminded me of Jason, my first-born son. About a year before I met Jonathan, my son Jason died of a rare birth disorder called Marfan’s Syndrome. As I watched Jase’s life evaporate right before my eyes, I wanted to stop his suffering. I knew that was really unlikely. My husband and I could only do so much for Jase. But Jonathan’s situation was different. My imagination raced with possibilities.
When I heard about Jonathan, I had been a professional hypnotist specializing in stress reduction for only about a year. My focus narrowed on teaching people calm public speaking and calm test-taking. I never imagined I’d be using hypnosis to help someone in a coma!
Guided Imagery, Hypnotic Suggestion & Command Following – Wow!
Using guided imagery, hypnotic suggestion, and a technique called Command Following, within 48 hours of using these CAM methods, Jonathan regained conscious awareness. The thing I discovered that helped a lot was suggesting ways Jonathan could feel calm. This brief MP3 audio recording is similar to the one I first created for Jonathan. It is yours free to try out on yourself or your comatose loved one.
Many People In Coma Can Hear You
The hearing sense is active in most comatose people. They might not be able to respond by speaking to you, but you can see changes in their breathing rate. If you can do anything to calm them, that benefits them.
I’ve learned a lot since first working with Jonathan. I’ve now worked with other comatose people and those in stroke recovery using hypnosis and something called Jin Shin Jyutsu. These are techniques that can make a difference to reduce stress naturally.

Will your comatose loved one respond after hearing it? No one can know. However, notice the breath rate. Is it calmer after hearing a meditation? If so, that could be an indication he or she is hearing the meditation. A change in breath rate IS a conscious response. If this happens and you want to talk about it, you can email me to discuss at [email protected].
Note: Only use these meditations for those in coma or stroke recovery after first getting permission from your comatose person’s physician. Some people are intentionally put into a medical coma for their benefit. ONLY follow doctor’s orders.
