The Best Bedtime Story

Magic Nights for Children

Bedtime Stories by Gracie & Viv

How could a bedtime story help your child feel empowered and honored for who they are. How could it show them that friends come in all shapes and sizes, and that, in the end, the universe they live in is a safe and supportive place to be.

Maybe it could be the story with a simple, fun story structure that you can lead them through, but where they can choose the scene, the characters and the destination. – a nighttime journey of their own making. Like going out into a magical ocean full of possibility every night.

Maybe it could be a tale where you can teach a Captain’s Code of important life-skills like graciousness and freedom and ethics that they can draw from for the rest of their lives.

Maybe it could be a story with an exciting new chapter every night sending the child off into dreamland as the Captain of their own ship, with a crew of their choosing, to a destination only limited by their imagination.

So that in the morning before they open their eyes, they can learn how to go within to thank their crew and guests. They can see what treasures that they have brought back with them, and what new discoveries they have made.

And they can keep that feeling of self-determination, self-reliance and support from the universe with them all through the day. They can learn that they now have a resource, an inner wisdom and power, and a place to go for help no matter where they are or what situation they might find themselves in.

All they have to do is remember that special bedtime story.

And when they grow up, they will still have that old Magic Nights ship in their back pocket:  And when they feel challenged, their answer just might be  “Sure.  Let me sleep on it…”


Have a Magic Night!
