I’ve read that chamomile can encourage sweet dreams. I tried it last night.
After sipping my tea and hoping my first attempt would be a success, I did find myself having a sweet dream.
In Dream Town the vibe was happy, innocent, and loving. I was at my childhood home. We had a family reunion of sorts, my hubby and the kids, my mom, and sister, my mother-in-law, father-in-law, and nieces and nephews. We were all playing in the backyard, I believe it was a game of baby in the air. I dream of that house ALL OF THE TIME. My childhood memories there are wonderful, sweet if you will.
Look at that house, isn’t it cute?
See the Japanese Maple in the front? It once was a tiny seedling growing in the ground. My dad planted the seedling and constructed a little fence to protect the seedling from my sister and I trampling it. But the fence didn’t stop us. We trampled the seedling. Often. Not on purpose though, we were just a couple of little girls running around the yard playing and having fun.
My dad persisted though, and was determined to help that little seedling grow. He tied a little popsicle stick to the stem to give it strength, and replaced the fence until its next injury. As you can see, the seedling did eventually grow into a tree. Patience, and persistence, along with a strong desire is sometimes all you need to see your seedlings grow. Isn’t that sweet?
My next investigation will be nap related. I already can’t wait. Nap time is the perfect time for dreamwork, if you can get into REM. Since REM sleep is when dreams occur, this part is pretty important. And unless you’re a cat, it’s safe to say your nap period won’t be very long, so you will wake up and have a better memory of your dreams (if you did get into REM), because they likely just happened. So I’ll sip my tea, put my phone on Do Not Disturb, and try to take a nap…reminding myself as I doze off, that this nap is required by my job today.
