Thank you Nancy for a good night's sleep!
Getting a good night's sleep was my ultimate goal. Many nights I would be wakeful
after only a few hours, or less, sleep. I would toss and turn and finally give up. 3am was
a common time to begin my day ... If I was lucky, it would be 5am. Very few nights did I
sleep, let alone deeply, for more than 5 or 6 hours.
I began to wonder if it was just the way of life, to require less sleep as you age. It had
me yearn for the time as a teenager, and young adult, where I could sleep for 10, 12 or
even 14 hours. In fact, I could have slept away an entire Saturday, if my mom would
have let me.
Was it even possible for me to get a good night's sleep?
Then came a serious health crisis and it became even more important that I get quality,
deep sleep. In fact it was necessary for me to get 8 to 10 hours of healing, restorative
sleep. But, how was I to do that?
That's when Nancy offered me this course series, to learn intentional meditation. She
taught it to me in stages. Each time deepening the process. Learning new steps. I
would practice for awhile, and then learn the next step.
At first I thought I would just use it in my daily meditation. However, what I noticed is
that I started to use it more regularly at night, sometimes more than once. Initially to
drift off to sleep and again during that wakeful time at 3am!
It worked like a charm. Thank you Nancy. Your teaching style is so supportive, kind and
helpful. Anyone, especially women as they age, who cannot sleep, would find this
intentional meditation works like magic. A perfect way to set the tone for a good
night's sleep AND, more often than not, I now sleep 8 to 10 hours. An incredible
