The intention of tonight’s meditation is to guide you gently into the deep, restful sleep your body needs. Even though your mind wants to keep you awake with tasks to do, responsibilities to hold or life to ponder. Sleep is here...and she’s waiting for you.

It feels extremely good and relaxing to rest and loosen your cheeks ☺️
It’s very relaxing when you let each body part loose. Never thought to drop your jaw and let your cheeks drop actually how good it feels and the tension that is removed.

I need to recognize that my inner child is overwhelmed but my adult self knows it will all be okay. Roll with the punches little friend

Still awake
Listened and hit an hour or two of sleep Bitcoin didn’t really work. Better than the 4 minute meditation. Will try one more.

I fell asleep within three minutes which I’ve almost never been able to do. That was awesome.I still felt a bit tired when I awoke the next morning
I didn’t like the music choice because it had constant bird sounds in it, which makes it difficult to stay sleep. I probably awoke at least 5 times which is probably why is still feel tired.

1st Sleep meditation
I have fear of the process falling asleep because I see frightening images of evil beings.

Did not help me fall asleep
I was able to relax a bit, but not fall asleep, even with 30 minutes of binaural music after the meditation ended.

Okay
Interesting but didn’t really help me fall asleep. Was awake until the track finished, then fell asleep some time later. Didn’t love it.

I panic and my mind races and I feel so many things like I’m so hyper active one moment and then mentally insane a loose it the next and it makes me feel like something is wrong with me like all anxio
I need to be more kind to myself and how I don’t have to put so much pressure onto myself and how school makes me unhappy because it makes me feel uncomfortable. And how everyone around me there emotions fluctuate. And I can’t stop feeling so anxious and depressed

My anxious thoughts HR
I feel good and I need help. I hate school I just can’t it’s all too much. Everything is mentally draining. I can’t adapt to change and it’s all happening at once and my family doesn’t as me how I feel and when I tell them I respond all depressed or anxious and that’s thoughts cloud my mind. I can’t sleep, eat, drink I can’t do anything I’m having an identity crisis then question if I am ok and don’t know what’s happening to me and what others think cause all I have to do is control everything just like what my parents said. And now I hear voices now and it’s all getting too much for me and when someone loves me Idk how to respond because when I tried to love them they don’t respond to the way I want them too.

I slept longer than normal.
I still need to work on it, but the meditation really helped me to go to sleep.
