Man comfortably sleeping in his bed

As you lie in bed preparing for your nightly slumber, remember that the last thought you have in your mind can last up to four hours in your subconscious mind. Create a reminder like a prayer or mantra to place by your bed. Read these words as you get comfortable.
– Wayne Dyer

What do you think about as you’re falling asleep each night? Do you endlessly review all you need to do the next day, or rerun the latest drama in your personal life? Years ago when I studied the Silva Mind Control method, and later when I trained to become a hypnotherapist, I learned that the thoughts we are thinking as we fall asleep are extra powerful. Indeed, as we enter into the alpha state as we’re falling asleep, we are in a highly suggestive state, so whatever we’re thinking is programming our subconscious mind. This means it is extra important to think about all we are hoping to create in our lives as we fall asleep, and to give thanks for all the blessings we already enjoy that we want to protect and cultivate even further in the future. Develop the habit of filling your mind with positive thoughts and your body with positive feelings as you’re falling asleep at night: it will promote happy dreams, empower you to create what you want in your life, and help you align with a full and restful night’s sleep.
