Sleep Hypnosis

Updated: Aug 1, 2020

Sometimes a good night's sleep can be elusive. If you find it hard to get to sleep, wake up in the middle of the night, or just wake up every morning feeling like a zombie hypnosis might be for you.

Hypnosis is all about focusing our attention to bring us into deep states of relaxation. Whether with a therapist, through self-hypnosis, or with a recording you learn how easy it can be to relax your body and mind.

The process begins with a few simple instructions. "Close your eyes. Begin to focus on your breathing. Notice how each breath you exhale makes you feel more and more relaxed..."

You then learn how to send those feelings of relaxation and ease throughout your whole body. Once the body is relaxed, the mind naturally follows. These wonderful feelings of mental relaxation then support even more relaxation in the body. And so it continues, like a cascading waterfall of peace and ease throughout your whole being.

For people who struggle with getting to sleep, this is often just the medicine they need. Racing thoughts and worries naturally dissolved, allowing sleep to come. If you wake up in the middle of the night, you can simply guide yourself through the process again, or replay your recording.

For those of you with other sleep disturbance issues like snoring or sleep apnea, a series of therapeutic sessions with a trained hypnotist along with a program of self-hypnosis can be very effective. In the relaxed state of trance, you are given hypnotic suggestions to remember how good it feels to breath smoothly and easily. You then recognize that you do have control over your breathing process even in the sleep state.

Everyone is different. Some people's sleep issues are resolved after a few sessions. Other's take longer and require more support. In any case, hypnosis is an effective tool for getting the sleep you need.

Here is a basic relaxation induction that you can record for yourself using your laptop or smartphone. Listen to it any time your are having trouble falling asleep or simply want to relax.

(Remember, it does contain hypnotic words and content so only use it when you are in a safe place or ready to go to sleep.)
