If You Awaken, Sleep Again in 90 Seconds

You've had a tense and difficult day. The problems are not  resolved, and tomorrow promise to be worse. You need a night of  refreshing, rejuvenating sleep. But you know you are worried, upset,  depressed, anxious or troubled with any of countless other feelings.  You know you face another sleepless night.

Of course, your own certainty of an inability to sleep is a large  part of the problem. A few sessions of hypnotherapy could change your  attitude, eliminate your fears and teach you a self-hypnosis procedure  which could remove the problem from your life and in the process enable  you to handle problems in a manner less likely to produce  sleep-destroying stress.

How does insomnia affect you personally? Do you feel anxiety and  lie awake for hours before finally sleeping fitfully for a brief time  before starting the new day? Or do you fall asleep promptly, then  awaken later with mind churning and thrash around for the rest of the  night? Or do you drift in and out of sleep all night long, and arise in the morning totally exhausted?

Insomnia has a specific cause. Relief may well involve seeking out the cause if it is unknown. Hypnotic regression may be helpful in such cases.

Stress  Management

Relief may require medical attention in some cases, or professional counseling in others. Or too many stimulating beverages may be  factors--coffee, tea, cola drinks, etc. Strenuous physical or mental  activity before bedtime can interfere with sleep--work-outs, challenging games, emotional conversation can be culprits. Napping during daylight hours will affect nighttime relaxation. It may be necessary to  consider your life and habit patterns, discuss them with professional  counsel, and then utilize hypnotherapy to create beneficial changes.  Simply learning hypnotic relaxation can create physical and mental  conditions conducive to achieving the necessary rest patterns.

Sometimes sleep is forfeited due to excitement. Anticipation of an important event, happy or otherwise, can disrupt the sleeping process.  Such occasional insomnia is seldom a cause for concern. But when an  over-active mind attempts to deal with tensions, anxieties, pains and  problems, sleepless nights are predictable.

What's the Answer?

Old time remedies, such as warm milk, counting sheep, reading,  exercise, etc., are at best temporary solutions. Yet insomnia responds  wonderfully well to hypnosis. Often, following a hypnotic session and  even without suggestions, the subject will sleep quite soundly due to  the deep relaxation achieved during the session itself. Direct  suggestions, also, can be given to the subject with wonderful  effectiveness. Post-hypnotic suggestions can be given in hypnosis,  resulting in sleep at a specified time for a specified period.  Individuals can give post-hypnotic suggestions to themselves after  instruction by the hypnotherapist.

Appropriate suggestions for self-hypnosis might include  instructions to concentrate on relaxing daily. Elimination of doubts  about ability to sleep can be achieved through hypnosis. Remaining in  one comfortable position can be helpful--tossing contributes to the  inability to sleep. Unnatural sleep aids should be avoided. Further,  it can be helpful to practice resting and/or relaxation in the presence  of noises, pain or other disturbances, for easy sleeping can be learned  and can become a beneficial habit.

For those who awaken at night and cannot get back to sleep, a  simple but effective technique is to count backwards from 100. The  count should be slow--very slow--as follows: 100 (pause) "sleep." 99  (pause) "sleep." 98 (pause) "sleep." And so on. After each count,  speak or think the word "SLEEP." It is important to get comfortable  before starting, but having done so, few counters are able to stay awake to number 90.

It may prove effective to modify physical surroundings. It is  important to determine the specific irritation--whether it is a sound, a feeling or a body tension. A minor amount of instruction in  self-hypnosis can enable an individual to live and sleep well with those elements he cannot change, after changing those which he can. Dim  light or darkness, circulating air, appropriate temperatures are  important.

Your Hypnotherapist Can Help

Those seeking rapid, effective relief may turn to hypnotherapy. In addition to programming a client with suggestions conducive to restful  sleep and teaching self-hypnosis, the therapist can create a  personalized tape designed to deal with individual problems. The tape  can simply lead the client into deep, comfortable relaxation with  instructions at the end of the tape to enjoy restful sleep throughout  the night and in the morning awaken refreshed and enthusiastic about the new day.

The insomnia induction likely will entail permission given to the  subconscious to enjoy relaxation, to be aware of past accomplishments  and the comfort of having experienced success together with the  recognition that success is contagious, generating feelings of well  being.

Your hypnotherapist will tend to replace negative thinking and  attitudes with positive viewpoints, resulting in mental conditioning  conducive to relaxation, peace and contentment. Problems of  significance can be set aside, as the conscious mind is in essence  disconnected to allow sleep to take place.

Finally, you will be programmed to relate the night time to sleep  time, so that body and mind are synchronized and not in conflict.  Through visualization a mental picture can be created of a filing system in which the problems of the day can be stored for the night, safe and  secure, in a manner which will prove undisturbing during sleep hours yet available as needed on awakening. The refreshed awakening will enhance much better handling of any disturbing elements as a bright new day  begins.
