This book is based upon information derived from a study and research that I conducted for the Doctoral Dissertation “Spiritual Healing to Alleviate Chronic Mental and Physical Pain Associated with Arthritic Conditions.” This research is to promote methods of care that will improve physical, mental, and spiritual peace. It leads to comfort and inner healing. This is important for self-care and care givers. It is also valuable for all health care providers including nurses, therapists and clergy to consider these methods of care. This is designed to incorporate the needs of all faiths and spiritual beliefs. Considering all humanity, we each have different and personal beliefs. However, everyone is spiritual, and each person lives according to an individual form of spirituality that motivates and inspires their life. Clinical Spiritual Hypnotherapy combined with personal beliefs is a powerful method of healing. This is dedicated to each person who wishes to help themselves and others in their own individual manner. There are certain natural gifts that we all have in common and that is a higher intelligence, consciousness, and free will. Let us use our own abilities as a guide and tool for being a blessing to ourselves and others. Everyone experiences some form of mental or physical discomfort due to our humanity. Now we will focus on Divine, Universal, and Holy Will to bring us to a place of complete peace and comfort here and now on this earth as it is in Heaven.
This is a spiritual journey that is leading us toward a place of inner peace and healing. Become aware of a higher level of consciousness where we find that place “on Earth as it is in Heaven.” This is a location of inner peace and tranquility within the mind. Awaken to an inner reality of heavenly awareness. Find eternity in the silence and peace of the Divine Mind during meditative prayer. This is a place of love and compassion. Reaching a higher level of consciousness elevates our mind to a level of greater intelligence and understanding of our self and each other. The kingdom of God is with us here and now. In this blessed state of being there is peace and unity. We experience unconditional love, forgiveness, and acceptance. There is a blending and union with our higher self. We are then free to create new ways of thinking and living.

I believe that we are one in a Sacred Spirit of Love, compassion and caring for each person according to needs. There are many languages and multiple belief systems. The interpretation of words is the only factor that divides us.

The Valley of the Silent Stream represents a place within your mind where you receive inner guidance for healing. Total health including body, mind and soul begins with mental renewal. There is scientific proof that what your mind believes is what you feel. From the moment, you enter this life until the moment of transition you experience multiple situations that can influence your life. The discomfort associated with stress can be devastating or it can be a helpful learning experience depending on how you deal with it. Healing begins where our reality originates with thoughts that we ourselves implant within our mind thereby forming belief systems that create physical and emotional reactions. You are the master of your life and determine your own direction by using your ability to think and feel in a way that leads to happiness, inner peace and success. The meditative imagery prescriptions contained within the book Valley of the Silent Stream use the language of the inner or subconscious mind where only good and positive words create healing, you receive guidance that naturally and peacefully promote a relaxed state of mind and body. Meditative Imagery prescriptions promote health and inner healing. You learn to solve problems, rest your mind and body and allow your inner creative self to work out acceptable solutions leading to effective peaceful living. Focus is only on pleasant thought and helpful suggestions that lead to a higher level of consciousness. Within this state of consciousness, you find that quiet place where fear and anxiety disappear to free your soul. The self then grows, but as one with all.
