Right now we are being woken nightly by a little person who cries out after having a nightmare. On our next available day I am off to find a night light for her room which may or may not help. Another thing that might help is to build into our evening ritual the idea of slipping a good Dream Bag under her pillow.
A small fabric bag can be made or bought from a craft shop (a bag which would usually hold a bar of soap or some other small gift) and inside place a “magical” object. This could be a brand new shiny coin, a small polished rock or a beautiful shell. Each evening we can examine this magical object, slip it into the bag and place it under her pillow.
