How to Sleep Better With Hypnosis
Millions of people suffer sleeplessness and insomnia, and hypnosis can be a very effective treatment for them. When you struggle with insomnia, recurrent nightmares, sleepwalking or other sleeping disorders, it can have a significant impact on how you feel as well as how you function. Your relationships can suffer because you are tired and irritable. Your work can suffer because it is difficult to focus and get your work done efficiently and effectively and your health suffers because your body is simply not getting the rest it needs to keep your cells and organs healthy and revitalised.
There are various types of sleep disorders. If you chronically suffer from sleeping problems and insomnia, the first thing you should do is visit your doctor. Sometimes illness and disease are the underlying causes of sleep disorders. Once any medical problems have been ruled out, anxiety and stress are the most common sources of sleeping issues and insomnia.
So is there such a thing as a cure for insomnia and other sleeping problems? And is there one that doesn’t involve drugs with their inevitable side effects and danger of addiction?
Well, let’s look at it this way. Insomnia is our bodies’ natural response to stress. The body stays awake because the mind keeps it that way. It simply does not let the body achieve the sleep state. An insomnia cure, therefore, has to reverse this process. It has to return the mind and body to their natural state – the state where sleep can take place 100% naturally.
The only way to stop insomnia is to relax the body so deeply that sleep naturally takes over, whilst keeping the conscious mind occupied with something else. (This is, after all, what happens when you fall asleep naturally.) The best way to do this is with hypnosis.
By definition, hypnosis creates a state of deep relaxation whilst keeping the conscious mind occupied. It is actually a completely natural state in which we are in several times a day, for example when we drive on the highway or when we watch a movie.
Some people associate hypnosis with stage acts where manipulation is used. This stereotype conveys the impression that hypnosis is about losing control when in fact, it is about gaining control. Hypnosis is nothing less than the deliberate creation of the REM (Rapid Eye Movement – very important in many ways) state.
Simply being in REM/hypnosis is enough to let an overloaded brain catch up on its housekeeping and switch off unresolved emotional arousals. This is why people often say they feel better and are able to think more clearly after a hypnotic induction. By deliberately activating the REM state, hypnosis opens up the interface to the unconscious allowing new patterns of behavior to be laid down at the unconscious level of instinctive behavior.
A person who is truly hypnotized is in a deep state of relaxation and is fully aware of what is going on around them. For this very reason, hypnosis is a wonderful tool that you can use to induce a deep state of relaxation whenever you want.
