Freed from night terrors and insomnia

For years I would react to stress with insomnia, and, when I did sleep, I was often awakened by frightening dreams and images that even had me bolting out of bed, heart racing, as if someone or something were lurking in the shadows. 

In order to find relief I turned to a meditation practice that involved silently repeating passages from inspirational texts, including the Bible. This calmed me down, but the nighttime disturbances continued. I had attended a Christian Science Sunday School as a child, and through my meditation practice I rediscovered these spiritual roots. The many hymns I had learned, the 23rd and 91st Psalms, the Lord’s Prayer, and passages from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, all returned to the front of thought with powerful effect. 

We'd love to hear from you!
