Traumstunde "Reise zum Mond"

Text of this dream hour / relaxation story

It's cold winter. You lie snuggled up in your bed. Your fluffy blanket keeps you warm. You feel protected and safe. The moon shines into your room and makes it shine brightly. Small, cute glittering stars dance joyfully around it. 

The moon smiles at you ...

The moon smiles at you and speaks to you:  "Would you like to visit me? Also my friends, the stars, would be very pleased about a visit from you."
You don't think long and like to accept the friendly invitation of the moon. You close your eyes. A pleasant lightness carries you gently through the air. Very gently and easily you float further and further up, past the many houses of your city. The higher you get, the smaller the houses become, until you only recognize them as small, tiny dots. You see many glittering little stars on the horizon and come closer and closer to them. A small, cute star beckons you and smiles at you friendly.

It warms your heart. You wave back at him. More and more sparkling and glittering stars appear before your eyes. A real sea of glitter surrounds you. You feel warm, safe and happy. You start dancing out of sheer happiness. The glittering stars dance with you and spin in circles, faster and faster. You cheer and squeak with joy and enthusiasm. Suddenly you hear a deep, pleasant and familiar voice. You look around...and see the moon. Friendly he speaks to you in a soft voice: "I am very happy to welcome you here at my home as a friend. Tell me about your experiences on your journey from you to me."

full of enthusiasm you report from your encounter with the stars, from the common dance and the joy and happiness which you felt thereby. The moon is so happy with you that it starts singing a song to you: THE MOON IS RISING, THE GOLDEN STARS PRANGING ON THE HEAVY LIGHT AND BLACK ...

The beautiful, soothing voice of the moon makes you tire, you get more and more tired. It moves more and more into the distance, until you hear only a quiet, pleasant humming. You feel comfortable and secure. A ray of sun tickles your nose and you wake up rested and recovered in your warm, cuddly bed.

About the authors

Katrin Hennings: "I am a state-approved curative nurse and have an additional qualification as a course instructor in the area of relaxation for children. During my work in the family and handicapped help I could gain different experiences in the areas of perception promotion, basal stimulation and sensory integration. I have deepened these in my pedagogical work and have repeatedly noticed the enormous positive effects that various relaxation methods have on the well-being of children with and without disabilities.

A lack of concentration, stress, fears or an unsatisfactory body feeling can be balanced and improved by simple relaxation techniques, such as a dream journey or a child-friendly relaxation massage. Extensive studies have shown that children can relax more easily than adults. But children also let themselves be guided more by external circumstances and their impulses. Through targeted relaxation, children learn to see relaxation as something valuable and thus better control their impulses - which contributes to a healthy development of psychomotor skills."

Uta Darmer:  "I am a state-approved educator and mother of two children aged 18 and 14. Currently I work in a day care center which is attended by children aged 2 to 6 years. We all know that today more than ever children are exposed to sensory overload and an often hectic everyday life. This makes it all the more important to give them time and space to rest and relax in a child-friendly way. For many years I have therefore been dealing with the subject of relaxation pedagogy and regularly attend further training courses on the subject.

I experience again and again the great enthusiasm with which children get involved in relaxation stories and embark on dream journeys. In these, the big and small experiences of everyday life can be enjoyed in a pleasant way. *** Translated with (free version) ***
