These audio files are to be used with parental or adult guidance and with books by
Judy Leighton, pain and stress consultant.
The first audio file is the introduction (34:00), which is for parents or older children with a
mature understanding. The introduction introduces and explains the healing method used in the relaxation exercise.
The second audio file is the relaxation exercise (35:25).
This is to be used once a day or more frequently in a restful place.
The relaxation exercise serves two major purposes: (1) Helping each
child memorize the messages of the healing method and (2) allowing each
child to take full advantage of the healing method.
The stress-reduction and healing method presented in Judy Leighton's
books involves a four-week training process that uses these audio files
along with weekly worksheets found in her books.
The method is daily reinforced by recalling the information in spare moments.
After four weeks when the method becomes more second nature, it will be helpful
to continue reminding yourself of the information for a few spare minutes during each day.
To aid in memorizing the messages of the method (which may aid
you in getting results more quickly and easily), here are some options.
You can listen to this audio while you are doing other activities
that do not require much mental concentration (physical exercise, walking, chores, etc.).
You can write down the messages before doing these activities, and, when
repeating the messages, you can think, speak, or sing the messages by adding melodies or rhythms.
You can make signs of the messages (to place on a refrigerator, mirror, etc.).
When you do not have time to listen to the complete relaxation exercise,
you can choose a 12-minute or 24-minute section.
The relaxation exercise may also be used as an aid to help you relax to go to sleep.
The messages of the Sunshine Method inspire a feeling of safety. This safety is
first of all a feeling that learning is safe. The messages of the relaxation exercise
also help people feel safe enough to feel peace.
Thus, the messages of this method may be interpreted to mean: Through greater inner peace
and awareness, you may create and attract greater safety for yourself, others, and situations
while preserving your natural appropriate protective capacities and your abilities to think, feel,
and act in healthy and wise ways.
