a beautiful “I AM” lullaby for children at bedtime

by vanessagobes

Yesterday I posted about using “I AM” statements at bedtime to create realities for ourselves and for our children.  A friend suggested an affirming lullaby.  She is an extraordinary poet so I asked if she’d write one and she did!  AND IT’S BLISS!!!!  As Harula says, “the tune is vaguely ‘borrowed’ from the Connemara Cradle Song, or you can make up your own.  Enjoy!”  With deep appreciation for Harula’s talent…

An ‘I am’ Lullaby by Harula Ladd

I am well in my body

I am kind in my heart

I am loved, I am loving

I’m a light in the dark

But the sun needs to rest now

And for now, so do I

In a blanket of love’s warmth

With a smile, close my eyes

I am filled with compassion

I am good with my deeds

I am happy and joyful

I am calm and at ease

But the day now is ending

And for now I must sleep

Giving thanks that I’m healthy

And my goodness runs deep

I’m creative, I’m worthy

And I’m honest and true

I am perfect, I’m human

And I know you are too

And this song is a river

To the ocean of sleep

Where I rest and am peaceful

And the dreams are all sweet
