Hypnosis is very effective for sleep anxiety because it helps you quiet your mind and let go of the obsessive thoughts that rob you of precious sleep.
You know what it’s like when you’ve had a few days of insomnia. You start to think it’s going to be like this forever. Your worrying affects you to the degree that even the thought of going to bed at night is depressing.
There’s nothing more lonely than being awake at 3AM when everybody else in the house is sleeping. That feeling of isolation feeds the negative thinking and keeps the cycle alive.
Those Pesky Thoughts Take Hold
You know the thoughts I’m talking about: ‘What if I can’t sleep at all? I need at least 8 hours of sleep! I’ll never be able to cope!’
Often it’s the fear of not being able to cope the next day that keeps the insomnia going, even though you almost always find a way to cope with less sleep than you would have liked.
If you’re at the end of your tether, and you feel as though sleep phobia is taking control of your life, you can definitely do something about it – by changing the way you respond to your sleep difficulties.
This free sleep phobia meditation will help you:
- Stop ‘waiting’ to fall asleep;
- Stop worrying about the number of hours before you have to get up;
- Let go of the obsessive thoughts about not being able to cope;
- Accept what is and stop trying to change it
When you’re listening to this video, you may find your mind wandering off to other thoughts from time to time…that’s a normal part of the hypnotic process and is to be expected.
The idea here is to embrace whatever is happening, whether you think it’s ‘good’ or ‘bad’ and just go with the flow. It’s best to listen to this in a quiet place, with earphones. Please don’t listen to this while driving or operating machinery.
