How to Fall Asleep Faster

Posted by medliorator on April 15, 2008

Nothing is more frustrating that lying awake. While we advocate exercise, alternative measures exist…

An active mind can keep you awake well past your bedtime, but a simple meditation technique can help you forget the stress of the day, relax and fall asleep faster.

  • Imagine your body filled with a blue gas, swarming all around, fillng up every part of you.
  • Starting with your toes, to your feet and up your legs, slowly gather up all of this energy from each leg — feeling your toes, feet and legs relax as the energy leaves — and center it in your stomach area.
  • Do the same for your arms — slowly pulling the blue energy from the finger tips, hands, arms, shoulder and down into your stomach, letting it join the rest, creating an even larger ball of blue energy.
  • Again, pull the energy down from your head, neck and chest and add it to the spinning ball of blue energy that now fills your stomach area.
  • This ball of blue energy now contains everything — all of your worries, stresses and fears — and with it all together, shoot it out of the top of your head, through the wall, outside, and straight up into the sky. Watch it shoot past the tree tops, through the clouds and into space.
  • Feel your body relaxed and empty. Now, you’re ready to sleep.
