How To Sleep Well at Night

Diamond Lantern Book Signings are fun because of the wonderful people, interesting conversations, and great questions!

One lovely couple asked how to sleep better at night.  Here are the 3 things that work well for me:

1.  Press the flat of your palm over the raised part of your sternum just below your throat.  Press for the count of 20.  This lowers your energy and relaxes you.  To fully awaken, thump your sternum 20 times.

2.  Since I am a Hypnotherapist, I also recommend that you Self-Hypnotize:  When you go to bed, starting tonight and continuing for the next 21 days, just before you are ready to fall asleep – give yourself the following suggestion 10 times:

“I now sleep easily and peacefully and in the morning
I awaken feeling completely refreshed and wonderful.”

In order not to fall asleep and not to lose count, every time you say the suggestion, press down with each finger of your right hand.  Then continue with each finger of your left hand until you’ve completed the suggestion 10 times.

It is of the utmost importance to do this exercise every night without falling asleep until you’ve completed the 10 repeititions.

You are beginning to establish a habit of properly programming yourself by giving yourself positive suggestions before going to sleep.  The next day, you’ll find yourself reacting very positively to that suggestion.

3. Sleep While Listening to The Monroe Institute’s CD called ‘Super Sleep’.  Super sleep is the best sleep CD I’ve experienced to date.  “Super Sleep helps you produce the natural brain-wave patterns of the Delta-sleep state and enjoy the benefits of totally refreshing, deeply restorative sleep.”

…Oh yes!  Be sure to sleep in complete darkness.  Even a digital clock will keep you awake.

Sweet Dreams!
