She Who Sleeps Easily

Scsleep_2 I’ve had trouble sleeping the past few years. My gynecologist says it’s probably something to do with menopause. My therapist encourages me to do visualization when I go to bed. Everyone has a theory.  What I finally did was to make this card….

Who are you? I am the one who sleeps deeply and easily.  I am the one who sleeps like a rock.  I am the one who lets go of the day and allows sleep to claim me every night.  I am the one who willingly closes my eyes at night and gives in to the call of my inner dream world.  I am the one who rests and nourishes my body with sleep. What do you have to give me? I give you daily rest.  I give you the ability to let go of the day’s journey.  I give you dreams and deep physical peace. What do you want from me? I want you to stop resisting sleep.  I want you to allow yourself enough rest every night.  I want you to know you won’t miss anything as you sleep.  I want you to know you will be safe as you sleep.

This card has also suggested to me, via a Daily Reading, that I use the card and a candle in a nightly ritual, along with my journal, before getting in to the bed to go to sleep.  When I remember and allow myself to do this, it seems to put closure on my day for me and allows me to fall asleep faster, without all the usual inner “chatter.”

  1. Anne Marie, what a beautiful card, and I can relate to it 100%, especially the part about “not resisting sleep” and to know that I “won’t miss anything as I sleep”. I’ve pondered that exact question often & recently because I observed that it was almost like I had to hurry up and live everything in one continuous moment, and I couldn’t understand it. I asked myself “What are you afraid of missing?”. I still don’t know the answer, maybe I never will. Maybe all I need is that it’s safe to go to sleep. Seeing your card and reading the interpretation is like a message from my soul too. Earlier this week I intiutively knew I want & need to make a card for my Resister because she’s mighty in me, and I want to find out what she wants so she can be mighty in an empowering way; to stop resisting, especially sleep, would be a major breakthrough. Your card’s message speak to my soul. What a beautiful thing…this SoulCollage. Thank you Anne Marie.
