"Helpful" isn't a strong enough word for this meditation! I have had sleeplessness ALL my life and even the strongest meds would not induce sleep during some periods.
Hyper-vigilance was a result of severe nighttime abuse by my alcoholic parent, and this included physical nighttime surprise attacks.
Looking back at what went on in my early life, I realize that sleeplessness had been a survival necessity. I believe that realizing that fact helped me let the hyper-vigilance go. Sleeplessness actually saved my life many times as a child when I consider those liquor-fueled rages that I endured, but it was healing to understand in full that wakefulness in self defense was no longer necessary.
I am now a believer in a drugless approach to wholeness, more than ever! Thank you so much for enhancing my life with this helpful healing CD. What a game changer!
