Learn This Simple Technique & Fall Asleep Quickly



You probably all know the feeling of going to bed after a busy day and not being able to sleep because your mind is racing. You’re tossing and turning for hours and you start stressing yourself about your alarm that is about to go off in just a couple of hours. You try all sorts of things, turning the pillow, counting sheep, taking a hot shower, eating in the middle of the night, no coffee after 2 PM and still nothing seems to be working. This is actually a problem that a lot of people can relate to, whether it happens every night or just once in a while. But what if it would be possible to switch off those spinning thoughts and fall asleep right away? What if you could learn a simple technique that would not only make you fall asleep after a few minutes, but also give you more peaceful dreams and deeper sleep? It’s that kind of technique that I would like to share with you today. A technique that I learned when I was in India in 2016 and something I’m using whenever I have a hard time falling asleep. It’s super simple and hopefully this will be something that can help you too!

It’s also important for me to tell you that I’m no sleeping expert or a doctor. If you have trouble with insomnia I recommend talking to a professional or your doctor, I’m simply sharing my own experience.


Maggie

One of the people that this technique has helped is a girl named Maggie. In 2019 Maggie and I lived together for a very short time when I was studying acting in New York. One morning we started talking about sleep and she shared with me that ever since she was a little girl she has had trouble sleeping at night. Often it would take her many hours before falling asleep and when she finally did she would often have severe nightmares and feel exhausted in the morning, as if she hadn’t slept at all. She was also taking prescribed sleeping meditation to help her sleep, yet nothing seemed to help. I felt really sorry for Maggie and asked her if it could share with her what I learned in India about sleep. She agreed and I told her my story, which I will share with you too.

Dream Sleep Meditation

Back in 2016 my boyfriend (now husband) Blair and I did a yoga and meditation teacher training course in Rishikesh in India. I knew very little about yoga but was very passionate about meditation which was something I had practised for many years. At the yoga and meditation school we had a wonderful meditation and philosophy teacher named Jivasu who also happened to be a doctor. One day he was telling us about this very effective and simple sleeping technique, a type of meditation he called the “Dream Sleep Meditation”.
