Self hypnosis is the art of communication with the subconscious mind during a trance-like state. This state is achieved while listening to soft, pleasant music and/or a hypnosis tape, mp3, CD, or video. Better sleep can be achieved by resting comfortably while listening to positive suggestions that change sleep behaviors. Sleep problems such as insomnia, nightmares, bed wetting, and sleep walking can be treated with hypnosis to discover the causes of these sleep disorders. Hypnosis for nightmares will first be a process for finding the cause of them. If you discover a specific cause, you can create a special corrective script to be recorded and listened to each night. After a while you will notice significant improvement in sleep patterns.
We can think of the brain as a giant file cabinet with a folder for each thought category. Take the folder for sleep and look at what’s in it. There may be a file on the times when you slept like a baby long ago. Now, in more current sleep file, we see paperwork on sleepless nights, wakefulness, tossing and turning, nothing but chaos related to sleep. What you are going to learn today is a way to full the current file with paperwork related to calm, peaceful, relaxing sleep. We will reprogram, so to speak, those files.
When you use self hypnosis for sleep, you wake up feeling refreshed and wonderful. First of all most sleep disturbances are related to poor bedtime habits. We stay up too late watching TV or listening to music that isn’t relaxing. We must establish a gearing down of our lives, so that when we actually go to bed, we feel calm, quiet, relaxed and ready for sleep.
Here’s a process that will help you get to sleep quickly:
In a calm, slow voice tell your subconscious that you expect to have a peaceful night of super restful sleep. Tell yourself that any noises will not awaken you unless it’s an emergency. Noises will only remind you how sleepy you are. You should also say what time you want to wake up and that you will wake up feeling great – rested and energetic.
- Lie down on your comfortable bed. Spread your legs out slightly. Rest your arms beside you. Close your eyes and pretend you can’t open them. Take a four or five deep breaths while counting to 14. Breathe in for a count of 14 and out for a count of 14. If it seems too difficult, count to 10 instead of 14.
- Starting at the feet, concentrate on each part of your body as you tense up muscles and then release the tension. From your toes tense and relax them then move up to your ankles to do the same. Relax the muscles of your ankles and move up to your calves. tense the calf muscles and then relax them. Move to the thighs and tense the muscles and relax then relax them. Move your awareness up your body to your hips and tense the muscles and them relax them. You can release a long breath at the same time you relax a set of muscles. This feels like blowing the stress out of those muscles. Repeat this process for your waist muscles, muscles of the chest, and arms. For your neck muscles, think of someone using their fingers to smooth the muscles of the neck. Move up to the chin and face and tense and relax the muscles there, too. Relax the muscles of your scalp.
- With your eyes still closed visualize or imagine that you are entering your favorite place in the world. Imagine what it looks like and smells like. Visualize walking to a place where you see some stairs that go down. Count backwards from 10 to one as you walk down each step. At step one you see a nice comfortable place where you can lie down. Lie down there and imagine going to sleep.
- When you awaken, you will feel rested and refreshed.
