Would you like to learn how to fall asleep with ease
Lie down. Your body should be as relaxed as possible. Close your eyes and scan your body for tension.
Pay attention to your breathing. Place one hand on the part of your chest or abdomen that seems to rise and fall the most with each breath. If this spot is in your chest, you are not utilizing the lower part of your lungs as you should be.
Place both hands on your abdomen and follow your breathing while noticing how your abdomen rises and falls. Breathe through your nose. Notice if your chest is moving in harmony with your abdomen.
Now place one hand on your abdomen and one on your chest. Inhale deeply and slowly through your nose into your abdomen. You should feel your abdomen rise with this inhalation, and your chest should move only a little.
Exhale through your mouth, keeping your mouth, tongue, and jaw relaxed. Calm yourself as you focus on the sound and feeling of long, slow, deep breaths.
Say the following prayer:
I call upon the angels high,
The moon and the stars up in the sky.
Good night, family; good night, all.
I will sleep with ease ’til morning’s call.
Keep breathing deeply while you let go of the cares of the day. To do so, pretend that you do not have a name. Forget your name and realize that you are not your name, you are a spirit moving onward. Repeat that thought a few times until it starts to make a bit of sense to you. Then forget what you do for a living and realize that you are not what you do for a living, you are a spirit moving onward. Repeat that a few times until it starts to make sense to you. Then start to turn your senses off, one by one.
Your eyes should have been closed all this time, so now pretend you can turn off your sense of touch by visualizing relaxation entering your body through your toes and gradually moving up to the crown of your head. Then, if you’re still awake, pretend to shut down your sense of hearing, then taste, and finally your sense of smell.
Most people, including us, usually fall asleep while forgetting what they do for a living!
