Summary

Peaceful Tales - three lighthearted stories that are designed to help you fall asleep quickly and naturally. All YOU need to do is lie back, close your eyes, and listen. What could be easier? Remember being read to sleep as a child? Wasn't it one of your favorite things? Well, who says you have to be a kid for it to work? Not me.

These soothing, fanciful tales will allow you to relax and transport yourself to another place, a peaceful place. They are gentle stories written intentionally without conflict.

I have suffered from sleepless nights most of my life - until now. With your mind focused on something positive and peaceful, you can allow yourself to drift off. I like to call them "mini vacations for the mind." You can also use them as your "happy place" whenever the need arises. I use them at the dentist office.

Best Bedtime Stories that put me to sleep!!

I listen to these stories every night! It used to take me 1-2 hours to get to sleep! After a long exhausting work day, often to 10 pm. I have to get some sleep!! But I'm all wound up from my day... and the adrenaline is keeping me awake. So 3 years ago while looking for some calming music I found these bedtime stories! Wow! For me, they are better than any relaxing music or meditation!+ Reason is... my mind needs something to focus on or it wanders to the problems of today... or makes plans for tomorrow!! Bonnie O'Neil has a perfectly calming voice and 3 interesting & relaxing stories in this book... that capture my mind and lull me to sleep!! I never stay awake for 1 entire story. I set the audible timer for 45 min, cause I usually fall asleep within 20 -30 min. and I dont want it to play for hours and maybe awaken me. I did this for many weeks & never got thru one whole story!! So I would advance the story to the last part I remembered, then I could hear new parts of story before I fell asleep! It took me 6 months to finally finish a story!!! Then I would go to the next story and do the same thing! I never listen during the day... Must Save for bedtime! Bonnie's stories cause me to chuckle now & then, enjoy a little calm intrigue, and often make me smile, yawn, relax my breathing and doze off to deep sleep!! Amazing!! Bonnie has 2 bedtime story books... but Vol. 1 is my favorite!! Sweet Dreams!!

These stories did not help me call asleep. I listened to the whole book several times and still didn't fall asleel. I expected them to be comparable to the stories found on the Calm all but there weren't.

Finding Peace

What did you love best about Peaceful Tales, Vol.1?

Listening to these fanciful, original stories in the author's own soothing voice, definitely transports you to that zone of enjoyment when falling asleep. It's very hard to write a review since it's hard to stay awake! Kind of the opposite of what most authors would want to hear, but for Bonnie O'Neill I imagine this means success. All I can say is, it works!

I found myself relaxing and getting lulled to sleep comfortably and most importantly...naturally. No pills, teas, drops or sprays....just her sweet voice that brings one back to your mom, grandmother, or favorite aunt reading you bedtime stories as a kid. There's something so comforting about that alone. The rhythm of how her tales ebb and flow gives you moments to just drift off or actually fall asleep.

Bonnie O'Neill has created that perfectly elusive balance, through her images and characters, of not being too boring so that you might not want to listen again, while calming you down enough not to keep you awake or anxious from having to know what happens next. I'm not aware of anyone else accomplishing this before, short of hypnotism.
