HEALING A CHILD'S NIGHT TERROR















Bronson was a 7 year old suffering from night terrors. He couldn't sleep in his room at night even though he was with his sibling. His mother would lie with him in bed until he fell asleep, and would then go to her own room. She and her husband kept a small mattress on the floor beside their bed, knowing that when he woke during the night, in fear, he would end up sleeping in their room for the rest of the night. They tried everything to help him feel loved and safe but nothing helped.
I had worked with Bronson and found several trapped emotions. What was revealed in the balance astounded his mother. The trapped emotions identified through muscle testing were shock, terror, horror and fear. When we asked if we needed to know more about them, the answer was yes. We needed to find an age and it was around the age of two. His mom recalled a distressing event that took place just prior to Bronson’s second birthday when he ran out of the driveway and into the highway. It was getting dark and a car was traveling down the road. To avoid hitting the child, the driver swerved around him, and then landed in a ditch. It was a terrifying incident, as she remembered.
One can only imagine how that child felt seeing the headlights of a car coming right at him. Bronson’s mind subconsciously trapped all those emotions, which then came out in the form of night terrors or nightmares and fear of going to sleep. Once the trapped emotions were released, he was able to sleep well every night. They felt it was nothing short of a miracle! - Lorraine LaJoie
