According to WebMD.com, Swiss researchers did a study on using hypnosis to help women who suffer from insomnia. The report concluded, “After listening to a sleep-promoting audio tape containing hypnotic suggestion, women who are suggestible to hypnosis spent two-thirds less time awake, and about 80 percent more time in deep sleep compared to those who slept without the hypnotic suggestion.”
Symptoms of insomnia may include difficulty falling asleep, waking up in the middle of the night and having trouble going back to sleep, waking up too early and feeling tired when you wake up. However, if you have long term insomnia, you should consult with your doctor to rule out any other causes (such as medication) that may be the cause of your insomnia.
Getting a good night’s sleep is very important for our health. Students get better grades with good sleep. Lack of sleep can lead to accidents. Lack of sleep also makes you look and behave as if you were older. You will lose weight easier with good sleep habits.
If you have trouble sleeping, make it a rule to avoid business after 6 or 7 pm. You need to have a quiet down time. Clear your mind before you fall asleep. Laugh more. Our bodies produce healthy chemicals when we laugh, which leads to healthy changes in the body, including more oxygen to the brain, a stronger immune system, endorphins, better sleep, lower blood pressure, less stress hormones, reduced need for medication, being less likely to have a heart attack, heart disease or illnesses, and a happy glow on your face with shining eyes.
Every night before you fall asleep, think about three good things that happened to you that day, and three things for which you are grateful.
Using hypnosis can make it possible for insomnia sufferers to have a normal sleep. Hypnosis relaxes the body, and that alone can help you to fall asleep. Hypnosis can be used to eliminate headaches, stress, and anxiety, all of which can prevent you from having a good night’s sleep.
When using a hypnosis recording to fall asleep you may fall asleep before the recording ends, and just drift off into a normal sleep and awaken alert, relaxed, and refreshed. After listening to the recording several times you should fall asleep on your own by simply applying the exercises on the recording, but without the recording.
Using a hypnosis CD is ideal because you can listen to the CD wherever and whenever you need it. I offer a single CD or MP3 download to help people fall asleep easily and banish worry. For more information, visit http://www.vanceromane.com/products.html.
According to a study published in the journal Sleep, a better night’s sleep may be achieved after listening to a hypnosis recording. With a good sleep, thinking ability increases, there is a boosting of the immune system, and healing of the body. You can use my Fall Asleep Easily (CD#10) hypnosis recording or here is a technique I developed without it:
First of all, never try to go to sleep, just let it happen. Assume a comfortable sleeping position in your bed. Then take 3 to 5 long, slow, deep breaths, in through your nose and out through your mouth. Now, do this exercise in a slow, relaxed manner, with pauses.
Start with your feet, and say to yourself something like this, mentally, “Toes, you have helped me all these years to walk to so many places. You must be tired. Allow yourself to fall asleep and awaken refreshed in the morning. You deserve this rest.” Pause for a moment to imagine and let your toes relax. You can have some fun with this and imagine all your toes are relaxing, even snoring and sound asleep.
Then move on to your feet and do the same thing, then on to your ankles, your calves, your knees, your hips and thighs, etc. Constantly think thoughts of thanks and gratitude for each part of your body, and how they have served you well. When I do this slowly, I am usually asleep before I finish with my legs. The key is to do this all in a very slow unhurried
Remember to imagine yourself awakening at the time you wish to awaken, well rested, full of energy, with a healthy body and a healthy mind. This is a post hypnotic instruction for your subconscious mind. What you think about before sleep sinks down deep into your subconscious mind, ready to influence your conscious life.
Enjoy this, benefit from this, and let me know how much it helped you!
