Book Description

May 16, 2005 0970863365 978-0970863362 1 6 and up 1 and up
Indigo Ocean Dreams is the 2nd CD/audio book in this children's series. Like Indigo Dreams,this 60 minute CD/audio book is designed to entertain your child while introducing them to relaxation and meditation techniques. Indigo Ocean Dreams offers longer stories and variations on the same techniques found on Indigo Dreams. Ideal for older children and as step two for those already familiar with Indigo Dreams.

Four new stories explore breathing, visualizations, muscular relaxation and affirmations. Children follow their sea friends along as they learn to manage their own anger,stress and anxiety.
The narration is accompanied by healing sounds of dolphins, sea otters and gentle waves. An additional music sound track is included to further enhance your child's mind, body and spirit. Angry Octopus: Muscular Relaxation is essential to a good night s sleep. Children follow the octopus along as they learn to manage anger, relax and see things more clearly. This easy, fun exercise relaxes muscles throughout the body as anxiety, tension and anger slip away. Children and parents will fall asleep more easily and experience a deeper peaceful night s sleep. Affirmation Weaver: Affirmations or positive statements build self-esteem and empower children to be the best they can be. Children follow the sea friends along as they weave a web of confidence. Children learn to believe in themselves while replacing negative messages with positive self-talk. Children love this feel good story and the positive effect it has on their lives. Sea Otter Cove: Breathing for relaxation and wellness is a basic technique practiced by cultures throughout the world. This ancient technique encourages children to feel calm and in control of their own energy. Children love to follow the sea otters along as they experience diaphragmatic/belly breathing. This self calming technique can be used anytime, anywhere. Bubble Riding: Visualization is an effective technique widely used for achieving sports goals, creating success and attaining wellness. Now children can follow the sea child along as they fill their bodies with the colors of the rainbow. Colorful imagery quiets the mind and relaxes the body. Parents as well as children enjoy falling asleep while playing with bubbles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptitonal! July 5, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The Indigo Dreams series is exceptional: The writing is delightful, the narration gentle and soothing, the music is dreamy and non-intrusive, and the relaxation techniques effective (even on a kid in her 5th decade of life!) Because I create guided meditation CDs for adults, I am extremely familiar with what is in the marketplace. More often than not I'm dissappointed, but I'm happy to say that Indigo Ocean Dreams delighted me. Not only does this CD help the listener to relax, it gently addresses some of the issues that can cause stress (anger, anxiety, poor self esteem, etc.), helping kids to find constructive ways to have more calm in their waking life as well. I'm looking forward to the next CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, Excellent!! May 12, 2007
By Bonita
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My 10 year old daughter has been going through a tough time...lots of drama related to her friendships and anxiety about the foregoing issues led to pretty severe bouts of insomnia. I ordered these cds based on the reviews, and was so pleased. My daughter listened to them at bedtime, and the first night, slept the entire night through. She was able to relate to the stories, and the positive affirmations were something new to her that she truely embraced. I highly recommend that parents buy this series for their kids if they are struggling with anxiety or social concerns. I listened to them too, and found them helpful as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't recommend highly enough August 21, 2006
By S.C.
Format:Audio CD
I never take time to do these reviews as I am too

busy. But this one deserves my time.

My son (5) is a bit on the anxious side due to some

surgeries, a very active mind/tense body, and quite

simply due to his personality. I have tried to teach

him breathing techniques and a small amount of

meditation- he didn't really learn them all that well.

However he LOVES both the Indigo Dreams cds for

kids and learned the breathing techniques

immediately. I was surprised to hear him say one

day out of the blue "MOM! On the cd there's one

called "Bubble Ride" and you can feel the bubbles

cascading all the way down to your fingertips and it

REALLY makes me relax!"

He won't go to sleep without them now. He

associates it with relaxation and sleep so all I have

to do is turn on the cd player and he immediately

closes his eyes and gets down to the business of

relaxing towards sleep. Before the cds, he would be

up and down in his room for up to an hour before

he would settle down and stay in bed.

My neighbors 10 yr old daughter is also very anxious

due to a break-in in their new home recently and

some other issues she has. I suggested this cd

awhile ago but her mother didn't buy it. Finally after

they had yet another sleepless night due to some

bad night terrors and were exhausted, I walked

down and physically handed one of our cds to them

so they would try it. She said her daughter loves

them and zonks right out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Anger Management Story November 9, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ocean creatures make this fun. My girls (ages 3 & 5), can relate to the octopus in the first story, stomp and get mad, then get under control. Then I can remind them later to be like the angry octopus and get control of themselves to fix things, instead of just being angry.

I am kind of bummed because I went by one of these reviews that called this a "sequel" to the other one. It is NOT a sequel but is the exact same thing -- only the characters and setting have changed. Even my 8-year old noticed right away - "Oh this is the caterpillar story" and "this is the boy and the bear." We really liked the first CD, Indigo Dreams, and since this was described as for age 8-12, we thought it would be that "next step."

Yet I feel we completely wasted money since we already had the first. But if you don't have the first, then this is a great item. I don't know too many 12 year olds who would listen to it, but it's great for kids 6-10ish who need to learn relaxation techniques. Right away my son incorporated some of the techniques and is beginning to make some process with his anxieties.

Overall, the "Indigo Dreams" series of CDs is excellent, and my rating reflects my general perception across all three of them. The concepts and tone are soothing and the tools it teaches are effective. My very bright, creative 10 year old son suffers from pretty intense anxiety and stress issues; he also has some anger issues and trouble falling asleep, both of which are off-shoots of the stress and anxiety. While these CDs are (unfortunately!) not a total panacea, they are helpful for him on many a tough evening.

We own all three CDs in the "Indigo Dreams" series, and he listens to one or another of them just about every night. When he places one of those discs into the CD player, turns it on, and turns out the light, his body and brain seems to viscerally respond ... most of the time, anyhow. At his age and developmental level, he is just at the cusp of the kids' CDs being a little too young and the teen CD being a little too old, but he seems to benefit from them anyway. At this point, he still leans toward the kids' versions most of the time - the simple stories "zone him out" in a good way, though I can't honestly say that he "hears" them as much more than white noise after so many listenings. There are mornings when he tells me that he can't remember anything past the first or second story on the CD, which means he fell asleep relatively quickly. (YAY!) Sometimes we just skip the CD player to the "music only" tracks at the end of each CD and that relaxes him as well.

The only barrier that prevented me from rating the series with five stars rather than four is a minor "gender issue". My son prefers the voice of the female narrator; unfortunately, she is only present on the Indigo Dreams CD with the purple cover.
