To The Gates of Dreaming: Using Guided Meditation to Help Young Children Sleep

Here’s a post that might interest some of the parents around here, or my childbirth students. I may try some of these things on myself!

In my classes, I use a rainbow technique for relaxation, but I think I like this version better. In class, I just have the couples visualize the colors, as if on a movie screen. The technique used here seems much softer and dreamlike…

You feel yourself floating on a red cloud, a beautiful red cloud. Red surrounding you, red all around.  Touching red, feeling red, tasting red.  A beautiful red cloud.  Drift down through the red, deeper and deeper, sleepier and sleepier, until you reach an orange cloud.  A beautiful orange cloud…

Yes, I’m going to try this!
