No doubt you believe you have tried everything to fall asleep, including a stiff drink, over-the-counter-sleep aids or even highly addictive prescription sleeping pills. All lead to the same end: You develop a tolerance, your "sleep" is not restful and the next morning, you felt drugged and lethargic. Hypnosis insomnia therapy can bring safe, effective sleep without side effects.
Many people wrongly believe that hypnosis is sleep. But effective hypnosis insomnia programs will only bring results if you are awake while in a deep state of relaxation. In this state, your unconscious is more open and accepting to guidance. In the most successful programs, post-hypnotic suggestions are given to you to remove tension and create a positive expectation of restful sleep. NLP for a sleep disturbance is generally effective after the first session because we are inclined to get what we expect, so you will sleep soundly all through the night.
After thoroughly relaxing, the next step in hypnotic insomnia therapy is discovering what induces you to suffer from a sleep disturbance. Another vital part of a hypnosis insomnia course entails looking small changes to your evening ritual that will have the most significant effect on your ability to quickly fall asleep for restful and sound slumber all night long.
At the center of a successful NLP insomnia program lies Neuro-Linguistic Programming, or NLP. Powerful NLP techniques can be used to "flip" things around in the unconscious so that thoughts and experiences that previously prompted stressful feelings will actually cause relaxation instead.
Alleviating stress is paramount for a NLP insomnia treatment to be effective, and NLP visualizations can instruct the unconscious to automatically get rid off disturbing thoughts and feelings that create stress. These peaceful feelings stay with you through the day so that when it is time for bed, you can fall asleep quickly and rest throughout the entire night without disturbance.
In addition to using effective NLP techniques in NLP insomnia programs, Ericksonian Hypnotic Metaphors are also worthwhile. Basically, a qualified hypnotherapist creates a metaphor, or a parable, that directs your unconscious to subdue your thoughts-especially at night-to get rid of any fear or anxiety about lying awake.
To permanently conquer a sleep disturbance, learning to relax with self-hypnosis is required, but it is not always practical to listen to a CD or watch a DVD. Learning how to give yourself post-hypnotic suggestions anytime, anywhere to trigger deep relaxation can be accomplished easily. That's right-you can successfully use self-hypnosis insomnia suggestions any time you need them.
Hypnosis insomnia programs cannot harm you in any way. A hypnotherapist cannot get you to say or do anything that you do not want to. You remain completely in control, and there is no "hypnotized feeling" that you have to shake off. In fact, the worst that could possibly happen is that you might fall asleep for thirty minutes or so. That's the point of hypnosis for insomnia in the first place!
Hypnotherapy instructions for insomnia can be directives to the unconscious to draw on pleasant fantasies and memories to create pleasant dreams and relaxation. You will feel tranquil at bedtime and have a positive expectation of sound and restful sleep. And that positive expectation will help you fall asleep quickly, and the dreams will make you sleep soundly and restfully all night long.
Additionally, NLP programs are highly effective; it has been reported that most people are hypnotizable to a greater or lesser extent. However, those with less than a 70 IQ or those who are in an active state of psychosis generally are not hypnotizable. Most senile people are also difficult or impossible to hypnotize. Like any move to improve the quality of your life, your motivation is imperative for success.
Everyone responds uniquely to each type of hypnosis, so be sure your NLP insomnia program offers several different methods, like NLP and Ericksonian Metaphors, to bring you the results that you are seeking. Most NLP insomnia program participants remark their sleep issues are alleviated by hypnosis, and insomnia simply fades away like a bad dream.
