I've been learning and studying for over ten years now about the mind, body, spirit connection and anyone with any common sense would know it is a valid connection that helps us to heal in all areas of our life, health and relationships.
There is NO DANGER for anyone in reading or using these techniques, that is if you desire to help your children and yourself. My personal advice is read, learn and use it for yourself and see the results and miracles that occur in your life and that of your children. Don't close your mind to anything just because someone has their heart and mind based in fear. Fear will keeep you and your children from knowing God, knowing peace, the truth and the healing that comes with it.
Want some proof, read Dr.Herbert Benson's book "The Relaxation Response" or any books by Belleruth Naparstek. It's been proven for years now that meditation as well as guided imagery are beneficial for everone, just as prayer works... so does relaxation, meditation, guided imagery and hypnotherapy, all are one in the same in different forms. They can and will change your life! Go for it and experience the miracles for yourself. I did and so are millions of others around the globe.
I read the stories to my daughter and her twin sister, and they loved them! The meditations are so peaceful and relaxing, and they can be adapted to any belief system. With my daughters I add guardian angels, because that is my belief. At work (I'm a preschool teacher) I avoid Christian symbols and focus on the beauty of nature.
By the way, my daughter's anxiety is almost entirely gone. I know that's not entirely because of this book, but it certainly helped!
If you have a child that fights sleep and is a visual/auditory learner, you should invest in this series.
This book helps our daughter child settle down, relax and unwind at bedtime. It would probably also be good in times of stress (big game, big test, public performance, etc.). And it only takes about 10 minutes, so even very busy families can fit it in (they probably need it the most!).
It fits a wide age range - we've used these meditations at several stages so far. We got the book around age 2 when there were "mon-ters in the closet," and pulled it out again the next time that sleep and nighttime separation issues arose, around age 5. Now we're revisiting it at age 9 when she requested that we go through it a chapter a night - and our total night owl often falls asleep before the end.
