Heavenly Sleep—Healthy sleep tips to fall asleep quickly, rest deeply and rejuvenate profoundly during the night
The heavenly sleep that comes from a healthy rest is one of the four pillars of life along with a good diet, appropriate exercise and activity dedicated to the well-being of oneself and others. If you align even one of these pillars with your full potential, it will reflect favorably on all the others.
Since we spend a third of our life sleeping, it makes sense to ensure that this sleep time is spent wisely. Here are practical tips for healthy sleep habits that will help you get the most out of your night’s sleep.
Want a Heavenly Sleep? Begin by Commanding Your Body’s Natural Rhythms
Healthy sleep habits are important! Before the days of electricity, it was common to retire and rise with the sun. Few people today still do this. However, our bodies have not forgotten their eternal connection with the natural world. Our circadian rhythms are naturally attuned with the cycles of day and night. If we honor this natural attunement by aligning our sleep patterns with our circadian rhythms, we can do a lot to correct sleep disorders and gain maximum benefit from our night’s sleep.
To set ourselves up for a quality sleep, It is good to aim at a 9:30 p.m. bedtime and plan to be asleep by 9:45 p.m. The ancient natural health system known as Ayurveda recognizes the presence of energy activation in the body from 10:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. which is responsible for healing and rejuvenating the body. If we are in sleep state by 9:45 p.m., our body will recover from the day’s stresses with maximum efficiency.
Discover the Magic of Magnesium
Another way we can promote heavenly sleep is in using supplements wisely. Magnesium is a wonderful supplement for supporting the nervous system, circulatory system and skeletal system. Also, it aids in the absorption of calcium. Healthy assimilation of calcium and magnesium helps to ensure that we get deep rest and provide a restful sleep.
There are many great ways to get enough calcium and magnesium to bring on the sleep of a baby. One is to drink a small cup of warm milk before bed. If the milk is brought to a boil and then cooled, it will be easily digested and provide the nutrients to support deep sleep. Try adding a little nutmeg for added effect.
A great way that we can settle the body is to soak in a bath of Magnesium Bath Crystals. The crystals distributed by Health and Wisdom www.health-and-wisdom.com produce a dramatic boost in the quality of a night’s sleep. Soak for at least 15 minutes before bed. If you don’t have time for a bath, soaking only the feet is also highly effective.
Can Getting to Know Your Pineal Gland Help Promote Heavenly Sleep?
Yes, it can! The pineal gland produces a hormone called Melatonin. Melatonin signals the brain to shut down in preparation for sleep. Activating the pineal gland will speed the onset of sleep at bedtime or in the night if you have sleep problems and awaken prematurely.
Here’s how to do it:
As you lie in bed with the eyes closed, gently allow the attention to focus on the pineal gland. This organ is located in the center of the skull, laterally, about three inches behind the forehead. If you can’t find your pineal gland with your inner feeling, just attend to the general area.
Feel your love and gratitude for this precious organ which allows your brain to rest during sleep. Really appreciate it with sincerity. With intention, direct these feelings to the pineal gland or the pineal gland area. Offer the suggestion to your pineal gland that a sufficient quantity of melatonin be produced to bring the brain into a state of deep sleep. Remain openly receptive with gratitude and love.
Sometimes impressions can come which indicate the reason why sleep has not been as good as possible. Perhaps worries of the day or strain in activity are blocking the ability to relax. Just let the attention gently validate these impressions and this will help override their effects and allow the brain to continue moving in the direction of sleep.
Repeat as necessary.
Remember, that expectations, judgments and attachments can hamper the effectiveness of this process. So practice gently, without expectation. Being easy on yourself brings the best success in such a practice.
Position is Everything—Head East is Best
Aligning your body position to beneficially maximize the relationship between ourselves, the Earth and the Sun will support rejuvenation during sleep. In ancient times bodies were buried with the head to the North because they decay faster this way.
So, for maximum rejuvenation the advice is for you to orient your head to the East instead. When the sun is rising in the East it brings a light, fresh, life-nourishing energy to the Earth. This energy will permeate your body during sleep as well if you orient the head in this direction. If East is not an option in your room, try South as second best.
Resting and Digesting
You will always sleep easier when your body is not trying to digest a heavy meal. Therefore, it is advised to take the last meal of the day several hours prior to bedtime. An early evening meal will ensure plenty of energy for the evening’s activities. By bed time maximum physical energy will be available to you for the healing and rejuvenation of a great night’s sleep.
