A couple of weeks ago, my eldest son, who is 11, went for a sleepover at a friend’s house. At midnight, he phoned asking to come home. This is very unusual for him, as he is very independent. My husband went to pick him up, and when they got home, he was completely freaked out (his words), and ended up sleeping rather restlessly in my bed the rest of the night.
The next night, he did not want to go to sleep at all. He was still too freaked. He finally told me that there was another boy at the sleepover, and he had been talking about zombies, which is the one monster that really scares him. And he couldn’t get past it whenever he closed his eyes.
After talking to him, and giving him all sorts of tools to try, I finally suggested that he listen to one of my meditations. I started him with Protection Shield, to help him keep the bad energies out. It helped him a little bit, but he was still scared.
He asked to listen to another one, so I had him listen to Meeting Your Spirit Guides, so that he could know that he is not alone. So he could feel the comfort of his guardian angels surrounding him with their love and light. By the end of the meditation, he was smiling. I asked him how he was feeling, and he said he was much better.
“Can I listen to one more, though?” He had my iPhone, that has all my guided meditations on it, and he wanted to listen to Playing With Fairies. He was sitting next to me as I journalled, and I saw him totally relax, and the smile on his face got bigger and bigger. After that, he was finally able to go to sleep.
A few nights later, all three boys were arguing about what music (or no music) to listen to before bed. The eldest asked if they could listen to Playing With Fairies. They all agreed (finally!) and listened quietly to the whole meditation. A little while later, the youngest walked down the hall and asked me, “Do you have one about dragons?”
I guess I know what my next meditation is going to be about!
