One of the most frustrating experiences that you can endure is insomnia. Tired, lying in bed, tossing and turning – doing anything you can to fall asleep. The problem is the more you try to fall asleep, the less likely you will actually fall into a deep sleep. You can’t try to do it. You have to allow sleep to happen.
Relax To Overcome Insomnia
So maybe you’re in your comfortable bed, under your blankets with your favorite pillows, in the most relaxing and comfortable position. But are you truly relaxed? Relaxed in the body, mind and spirit? When you are truly and deeply relaxed, falling asleep is so easy. You don’t really do anything – you just allow nature to take over.
Animals never have trouble falling asleep. They know how to relax and live in the present moment. They aren’t concerned or worried about the past or the future. Not worried about something that may have happened years ago – or even earlier that day. Also, animals are not concerned with what they have to do tomorrow or the weeks and months and years to come. Animals have the wisdom to shut off those kinds of concerns, and live in the now. They know that this time is for sleep – and they fall asleep effortlessly. Animals know nothing about insomnia. When it’s time to go to sleep, they fall asleep.
Make Insomnia A Thing Of The Past
Ivan Pavlov did some groundbreaking work on hypnosis throughout his life. He had a quote that really epitomizes his whole philosophy of mind control – “Hypnosis, sleep, and inner inhibition are one and the same physiological process.” Hypnosis is the optimal way to shut off those parts of your mind that are not needed. You can inhibit those thoughts that may be distracting you. When you’re falling asleep, you don’t need to be worried about the past or the future. Just focus on relaxing in the present moment. Fall asleep effortlessly and make insomnia a thing of the past.
