|Relaxing for Surgery|
Before your surgery make room in your daily schedule for several relaxation activities a day.
Select an activity that is instantly calming so you can stop and relax for a few seconds whenever you feel uneasy.
Here is a list of possible relaxation activities that you can do for a minute or less:
As you think of this person, allow your heart to open and feel your love flow out from your heart to this person. The act of feeling your love has many health benefits and it is calming.
In addition, schedule at least twice a day when you will focus on relaxing for at least 15 minutes.
Here is a suggested relaxation activity.
Get comfortable. Take some deep relaxing sighs.
Go through your body and relax each part. Start with your head and work down to your feet, asking each part in its turn, to relax.
Pay attention to your face.
Ask the muscles of your face to relax.
Then your eyes, your jaw, back of your head, neck, shoulders, left arm, right arm, chest, stomach, back, hips, left leg, right leg.
Go through your body as often as is needed to feel relaxed.
Next, think of people who have agreed to pray for you or send you healing wishes. Think of this as an expression of their love for you. Feel your gratitude.
Next, visualize the desired outcome from this surgery.
See yourself healed. Use all of your senses.
You are up and about, happy and healthy, enjoying activities that are special to you.
Do this exercise at bedtime and one other time during the day.
You can relax very well by following these directions. Some people prefer to have this on tape or CD so they can just lean back and let someone else remind them of relaxing thoughts.
I recommend the relaxation CD that I made for this purpose.

If you like affirmations, the surgery tape and CD begin with the same relaxation messages and then adds affirmations appropriate for surgery.
