A note about Hypnosis for Insomnia Relief and Treatment
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
Stress and anxiety play a large role in insomnia. Many people, whether they realize it or not, have trouble falling asleep due to the fact that they are worrying or stressing about something. Sometimes, the anxiety is subconscious. Learning self-hypnosis can be an excellent way of relaxing one's mind in order to encourage sleep to develop.
So how do we go about hypnosis for insomnia treatment? Self-hypnosis is relatively easy to do once you get the hang of it. A common misconception of hypnosis is that, when under it, you no longer have control over your body. However, a simple hypnosis is oftentimes just an easy way of relaxing your body and mind, which is necessary when it comes to falling asleep.
This is a simple procedure of hypnosis for insomnia relief. To begin with, lay down on a comfortable surface, preferably on your back. Starting with your toes, tense your muscles and then relax them. Some people find it helpful to actually tell the muscles to relax. Slowly, work your way up your entire body. Don't forget your fingers, shoulders, and buttocks, since a large portion of tension can be carried in these areas.
The next thing you want to do, now that your body is presumably relaxed, is to focus on your breathing. Take long deep breaths and pay careful attention each time you inhale and exhale. You can tell your mind not to think about anything if it helps, although sometimes that is the quickest way to make your mind race.
In carrying out hypnosis for insomnia relief, using visualization while you exhale is very important. Make sure that you only focus on peaceful and restful images. Imagine fields of flowers, waves, starlit nights - whatever image works best for you. Focusing on your breathing and visualization will help to continue to relax you.
Once your mind and your body have reached relaxation, it should be easier to drift off into natural sleep. You don't have to worry about trying to pull yourself out of hypnosis, because, if done correctly, then you have induced a state of relaxation that should naturally develop into sleep.
If you tend to wake up in the middle of the night and have difficulty falling back asleep, the same process of hypnosis for insomnia relief can be repeated.
It could be that there are some subconscious reasons that you are unable to find sleep. Perhaps you had insomnia due to an illness and now that you are feeling better, your mind subconsciously fears the bed because it thinks that sleep will not be found there. A good experiment could be trying to find sleep in a different room in your house.
If you feel that your efforts at self hypnosis for insomnia treatment have not yielded any results, then going to a professional might be beneficial. A professional hypnotist can help you uncover psychological or subconscious reasons as to why you are not able to develop sleep naturally.
