My child, diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, has always had difficulty falling asleep despite all the bedtime rituals we would follow. His mind would just stay so busy when he was supposed to be relaxing and falling asleep. The Indigo Dreams CD and companion books have been a great help. He is able to concentrate on his breathing and relaxing his mind and body. He falls asleep much more readily. The CD is beautifully narrated and he really enjoys the music too. This is definitely a help for stressed out parents.

The belly breathing, affirmations, relaxation get my kids calm! The four stories are just the right length to keep their attention and get them to do actual stress management techniques. The author never tells the children what to do or that they are being taught. The kids just follow the stories and characters along and learn to manage their own anxiety with actual techniques. My children are also enjoying the new stories on Indigo Dreams// Garden Of Wellness. The stories encourage them to make healthy food choices, accept others and deal with hurt or angry feelings . The practice sessions,(which is different than the other Cds) are VERY effective and the music is equally soothing. They are already asking for specific tracks for specific feelings. Both of these CDs are the perfect tools, helping me to promote wellness for my family.

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. 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. The woman's voice is so soothing. It's wonderful. I love to listen to it too. The pace is perfect also. Thank you so much for these cds. Children have so much to deal with in their little lives and it's wonderful to see someone paying attention to this and teaching them these techniques they can learn easily and use for the rest of their lives! Thank you Thank you!

This CD is fantastic in helping my sons (ages 9 & 7) relax, let go of their nighttime worries, and drift peacefully to sleep. After a shower and books, it has become a regular part of our nighttime routine. The four stories teach children to give themselves positive messages, breathe deeply, and relax the muscles in their body. My one son is always asleep before it reaches the end, while the other enjoys listening to the music that plays after the stories are finished. A wonderful, relaxing way for children to let go and fall asleep.

We bought this for our 8 year old daughter who tends to be somewhat anxious at night trying to get to sleep. Since receiving this CD she looks forward to bedtime and she goes to sleep very easily. Bedtime is now a very positive experience for her. My wife and I were searching for a long time for something to help her with bedtime and this is the answer. Even if she happens to wake up in the middle of the night, she'll just put the CD on again and it really relaxes her. We have also recently received Lori Lite's other CD 'Indigo Ocean Dreams' variety, and it is wonderful as well! By the way, my son who is 11 also loves both CDs (and to be honest they have put my wife and I to sleep when we've had it on). Thanks to Lori Lite for helping out all the parents out there who were looking for a way to help their children with what can be a very anxious time for many kids. I can't recommend this enough, the stories are fabulous and are read by the author who has a perfect, soothing and calming voice. The music is very soothing and meditative as well and compliments everything beautifully! Also, for those whose children are in their teens, Lori Lite just released a new CD called Indigo Teen Dreams. It uses the same techniques but is presented in a way that is more suitable for kids in their teen years.

Highly recommended! Both of my children (ages 6 and 8) love this CD. I work in a related field, and I am very aware of the importance of introducing children to healthy living. I purchased this CD in an effort to give my children healthy ways to manage stress and improve their sleep patterns. My kids love listening to these stories at bedtime and they tell me that they feel happier when they wake up. I can hear them breathing along with the story and repeating positive statements.... I have even caught them using their breathing techniques during the day. I would recommend this to any mom or dad that wants to help their children sleep better and manage stress. It's working for our family.
