Divine Dreaming Meditation
Hola Gorgeous Goddess,
Sweet slumber is important. We can survive without food and water longer than we can survive without sleep. Our body needs it to heal and rest. Our brain needs it to reset and relax. Our soul needs it for nourishment and healing. When we get enough of the good kind of sleep, we feel like we're on top of the world and can do *anything.*
So sleep is like - uber important.
Tick or cross these questions as necessary...
Can it take you houuuurs to fall sleep?
What would your days be if you woke up feeling really revitalised and nourished instead of down and exhausted and blerrrr?
What would it be like if your dreams were divine, healing and wise instead of non-existent or "my mum is a goat" kinda weird?
It suckitty sucks to take hours to fall asleep, only to have erratic sleep and nonsensical dreams.
Especially when you really need a good night's sleep and a pocketfull of sweet dreams.
When we don't get those two essential healings, we can feel exhausted, drained, confused, grumpy and depressed. There's a reason they use sleep deprivation as torture, ya know? It's potent and powerful stuff. And instead of making it torture, we can use its powers for good - to change and heal our sweet bodies and souls.
Not only is sleep important for our sanity and hot sassy bodies, but having quality, divine dreams can make the world of difference to our souls. Our dreams can be places for us to receive healing and wisdom from our guides and angels. They can be sacred journeys of adventure.
We can discover new, amazing parts of the Goddess inside us through our dreams.
I have not had a full, uninterrupted nights sleep in over a year (since my horrible car accident). I listened to your meditation last night and I slept for 7 hours. AND NO NIGHTMARES. YOU ROCK MY SOCKS!!!
This is major major major stuff here... I'm so happy and grateful I could just cry... thank you so much for this meditation!
Leonie, you are my hero(ine)!"
You are magical Leonie!"
It's absolutely wonderful, and your voice is a dream to listen to in an of itself! It's a magical thing to be able to drift off into a peaceful slumber being told your in a safe place!
Your making and releasing the Divine Dreaming Meditation was an answer to my prayers, though you didn't know it at the time, I'm sure. Almost a month later I am happy to report that my sleep has improved by leaps and bounds. It worked right away, quieting my mind and lulling it into security. You have the most soothing voice, and that coupled with the music and visualizations absolutely worked like a charm. (I love the image of putting all the thoughts in a basket for the angels to take care of!) The e-booklet was beautiful, as well, and had some wonderful suggestions.
Almost a month out, I'm getting to sleep earlier, sleeping more soundly, and remembering more of my dreams than I have in some time. As time has gone on, I haven't needed the meditation every night to get to sleep, but on those nights that my mind is being incooperative, I know exactly what to do: use your Divine Dreaming Meditation. It hasn't failed me yet. Of course, better sleep has also had the side effect of a better mood, and that generally leads to better days. If you ask my family, they will tell you I've been a much easier person to be around.
In short, that was the best money I'd spent in some time."
Until last night. I finally got the meditation tracks onto my ipod and brought it into bed with me. When I was ready to go to sleep, and I put on the meditation and closed my eyes. I immediately felt more relaxed, and your voice was so soothing. I am positive it took me a lot less time to fall asleep than usual. In the morning, instead of hitting the snooze button four times before dragging myself out of bed and rushing to get dressed and out the door for work, I got up right away without the snooze button and felt fully rested. The dark circles around my eyes that I saw yesterday are going away already, and I am energized and excited to take on the day.
I plan on using the meditation again tonight, and I am so happy that I purchased it. I am looking forward to learning more about celebrating the goddess that I am, and I know your guidebook found me at the perfect time. Thank you for your Divine Dreaming kit, and for everything you do. You are a bright light shining to me from across the world!"
The Dreaming Time Meditation
The Dreaming Time meditation is a 21 minute long audio MP3. The gifts you'll get from using it?
* You'll have wise, healing, amazing dreams
* You'll feel more revitalised and nourished when you wake up
* You'll feel more connected with your guides
* You'll have way more glorious days because your nights are so much more nourishing.
So that was my Goddess way of saying:
This meditation will help you get to sleep easier and have better dreams.
What makes it so ju-ju?
The meditation uses some of my really powerful tools to help you feel calmer and relaxed, as well as guiding you more easily into sweet sleep.
What are the magic ingredients inside it?
It's got my voice (which has some kind of magical ability to send people to sleep) and some luscious background music. During the meditation, I also play:
- the chimes to clear your energy ready for sleep
- a singing bowl to help your chakras begin their natural cycle of healing through sleep
- a Native American-style flute to purify the space around you and clear your thoughts.
It will set up a safe, lovely nest around you to fall asleep in, help you activate healing all over your body and introduce you to your dreaming guides. And wa-la! A miraculous sleep and some divine dreams!

How the Divine Dreaming meditation got born
How this meditation came to be is very sweet. Imagine you have a favourite goddess client. And she's thirteen, and adorable, and wise. And imagine, one day, she sends you this email:
I have been having problems sleeping at the moment (boo) and I have been listening to the Creative Goddess E-course meditations, there is somthing about your voice that just makes me fall asleep.
()o Zzzzzzzzzzzz <- thats me, wearing an eyemask being asleep. haha.
But at the end of them, I feel all arty and awake and ready create! which is why they are perfect for the course... but not so perfect for sleepy time.
Soooooo I was wondering if you have ever made a sleepy time meditation?
If not could you pleasy please make one?
And so I did. So sweet Lana can keep falling asleep to the sound of my voice, and not wake up feeling so dang artsy. More nourished and slumber-enriched instead. Yay! And I figured if lovely Lana was having trouble sleeping, you might be too. So this is for Lana, and for you. And to all of us having a really beautiful sleep and amazing dreams.
I have been using my sacred tools to make my own slumber easier, deeper, more nourishing and more revitalising for years. I've shared these tools on my retreats, and women there have reported having their "best night's sleep in years" after using these tools. Which is pretty awesome, because I heart sleep. It's a profound experience.
And - here's the funny part - my voice makes people fall asleep. Women all over the world - who I coach and guide both face-to-face and online - have let me know that the sound of my voice in meditations has helped them fall asleep, again and again. If my superhero skill is in helping people get some sweet slumber, I guess I'll be cool with that :).
My own sleep experience?
I get to sleep in minutes, have some pretty amazing dreams and wake up each morning feeling bouncy and sparkly (my co-workers can attest to my over-exuberance in the mornings - hee hee hee). When I don't get enough of the good sleep, I'm just not my sparkly self. It's the fuel that keeps the goddess rocket-ship going. In dreams, I receive healings, meet my guides, receive messages, get taught new techniques, and get to travel the world meeting other goddesses (if I've turned up in your dreams before, hellloooo! *big hug*).
My dreams are such an important part of my spirituality, how I understand the world, and shine like the shiny beam I am. Needless to say - my sleep and dreams are really, really important to me. And I'm really excited that I get to share these tools with you.
