A good night’s sleep is something that we all need to function at our very best and while sleep comes very easy for some others battle each night with #insomnia. Being unable to fall asleep or waking up habitually early can make you feel tired, miserable or stressed throughout the day. The good news is that #hypnotherapy has been an extremely successful treatment for resolving sleep problems.
So how does hypnosis for insomnia work?
During a hypnotherapy session, your hypnotherapist may provide suggestions such as you will sleep easily and throughout the night and that you will later awaken at a pre-determined time feeling much more relaxed and refreshed. Sometimes the hypnotist will suggest triggers or use a post-hypnotic suggestion that can induce sleep more easily. For example: Holding your blanket/pillow in a certain way or laying in a specific position.
A hypnotherapist will be sure to suggest that you wake up when you need to as they do not want to discourage normal visits to the bathroom or legitimate reasons. It’s also important to know that if an emergency such as a fire or break-in occurs that you can wake up thanks to your natural self-preservation instincts.
Another method is to have you visualize yourself asleep, laying comfortably in bed as time passes, seeing how you’re enjoying a good night’s sleep, and embedding this suggestion in your subconscious mind.
Nightmares can also be a major problem for some struggling with insomnia, and if applicable, they can be addressed and eliminated. Suggestions can instruct your subconscious that when a nightmare begins, you will switch to a more pleasant dream, a different ending will occur, or perhaps you take on the role of a superhero and create a happy ending.
