Designed as the sequel to Indigo Dreams, this CD offers longer stories and expands on the relaxation techniques of breathing, visualizations, progressive muscle relaxation, and affirmations. Ideal for older children ages 6-12, or as step two for those already familiar with Indigo Dreams. Engaging characters present these adult level techniques in an easy to follow format that makes it fun for any child to learn. All four of these stories are also available as mp3 downloads, paperbacks, and eBooks.
Male narration is accompanied by calming sounds of dolphins, sea otters, and gentle waves. An additional 30-music soundtrack is included to further enhance your child’s relaxation experience.
Note to Parent:
Every child has a different emotional maturity, attention span, and need. While the stories are best suited for ages 6-12, do not let this be your primary reason for selecting. I recommend the Indigo Ocean Dreams stories for children with longer attention spans and children looking to add variety to their relaxation story collection. The story lengths range from 10-15 minutes. You know your child best and remember this is not about the reading level. The focus is on the actual techniques. Even adults and teens can learn the techniques within these stories if they will allow themselves to enjoy a playful format. (For those who prefer a guided format there is Indigo Dreams: Adult Relaxation and Indigo Teen Dreams.) This collection includes the story entitled, Angry Octopus. Angry Octopus was seen on Shark Tank and deals specifically with anger. However, all of the techniques can be used to reduce anger, decrease stress, and improve sleep.
“These stories were created to help our own child realize how easy it was to let go of anger and believe in herself. I knew I had another hit when my daughter asked me to tell her the octopus story over and over again” – Author and founder of Stress Free Kids, Lori Lite
