Having Trouble Sleeping?

Simply Being - Guided Meditation for Relaxation and Presence

By Meditation Oasis


Ok Beauties...
This post is something I've been wanting to share with you for a while now, but was brought to light last night, by a comment my beautiful "K" wrote to me on my "Let It Go" post. (You can read it here if you missed it, & if you're interested, of course).

"You might be a bit of a psychic my friend... Just last night I was tossing and turning in bed over a wrong that some insignificant person dealt me. I had a glass of wine just to try and fall asleep to let it go. This blog is such spectacular timing, its a bit scary! Love you to pieces!!!!! K"

I would bet money that we've all had our sleepless nights, & I would also bet money that we'd all agree…nothing sucks more! LOL! Whether you're up thinking about a big decision ahead, a way to confront someone about something that's been bothering you, a huge argument you had with your man/woman, or something as simple as what you're gonna wear tomorrow (yes…I've had those nights. Don't judge), etc. THINKING SUCKS! Especially when…for the love of God…all you wanna do is sleep! Even more annoying…is when the person you're sleeping next to is out in 5 seconds flat, already snoring & drooling all over themselves, and there you sit. And even worse…when the reason you're awake is because of THEM! Really??? F ME! (Love you, Boo!) LMAO! And I will not sleep on the couch & give up my beauty sleep! No sleep + stiff neck/back =even more pissed! Ha Ha! 

So…without further adieu…I introduce to you…my savior! 

If you have an IPhone or IPad…you need this app! 
I have it on my phone & IPad & keep both right next to my bed…for all kinds of emergencies!
Also a must…headphones.

Plug those suckers in, click on this pink little face & off to dreamland you go! 
I kid you not…you will be OUT!
It'll shut off on it's own & you'll wake up, without even knowing how long it took you to fall asleep!

I always set mine for 20 min & use "voice & music".
And the cherry on top…get ready…it's $0.99!

Insomniacs…who do you love?
Imma pray this works for you too! 


If you want all the details…here you go!

Customer Reviews

Would pay more! 

I used this app for the first time last night, and this morning I am almost in tears over how well it worked, especially given my level of skepticism. Like some of the other reviewers, I have suffered from insomnia all my life, and have learned to with it. My plan was to listen to this app for the 20 minutes, then switch to an ambient noise app I have. Well, I don't even remember removing my earphones, but when I woke up my IPad and earbuds were lying on the bed next to me! I woke up feeling refreshed and ready for the day, not groggy and feeling like I wanted to stay in bed like usual. Thank you so much guys, this app will definintely get recommended to friends!
Great for bedtime! 

This app is awesome. I listen to it before bed. Clears my mind and knock me out for sound sleep. Definitely recommend it
The best! 

I've been trying to meditate on and off for years. This has finally got me feeling like I've done it. Mary has the perfect pacing and tone for me. I particularly like how she doesn't proscribe a visual or even a I don't get that feeling of, "oh shoot. I'm out of sync".Also the benefit of meditation has been a great relief of anxiety. thanks.

Hope it helps you as much as it's helped me!
Love You…Mean It!

Oh & don't forget to link-up with me on Friday for "Friday Favorites"!
Would love to have you & see all your favorites!

Wishing You The Sweetest Dreams You've Ever Had,

Okay Veronika
I was meant to find your blog and read your posts. Especially after all I have been through, I was sleeping fine until I read someone's nasties written about me on another blog and ever since haven't slept. Yes I gave them that control so your post on Let it Go helped me first of all. I tried to have a glass of wine and sleep last night, I woke up with horrible cramps. I am going to check out that app though I want to see if I can get it on my android phone.
thank you for being my light

My Sweet Rachel…first off…I'm so sorry you've had to deal with the meanies. =( Sometimes people really suck, but try your best….to let your haters be your motivators! LOL! People are only mean when you have something they wish they had…or you're someone they wish they were. NEVER forget that. It's almost NEVER about you! Try your hardest, & I KNOW how hard it is…to NEVER let ANYONE dull your shine! You're a beautiful light in this world (I can tell already), and you gotta do what you're meant to do…SHINE! =) And 2…if I can help in any way…& I am here & I'm rootin' for you! Yes…def try the app (if not avail on android…look up other sleep/meditation apps. I'm sure there are many) & I pray it works as well for you as it has for me! And…I'm now following you too! =) Keep being positive, wonderful you & let the haters hate. It's their job! =) Maybe it's because of that killer bod you've worked so hard for! HAAAYYYYY!!! Get It Girl! =) XO
