In my health journey of now over 20 years, I have found that a large part of our problem with sleep is the abnormal brain pathways we’ve built up by
- Not Sleeping and
- Poor Behavioral/Lifestyle habits.
Through repetition, these brain pathways have caused sleeplessness to become hardwired into our brain.
In other words, it becomes habitual.
So with the recommendations and techniques that I’m going share with you, we will literally be re-building your brain pathways for perfect SLEEP.
This technique is actually very cool when you understand its potential beyond sleep alone. Neuroscience now understands that our brain is very much like a computer, where software can be uploaded with “training programs” for various skill sets. You stick in a USB stick or download the software and within 60 seconds you’ve got a new set of tools at your disposal.
Obviously, you can’t simply download a program from the internet into your brain (yet). But there is one technique similar to Pavlov’s conditioning experiments with dogs (using pairings of the bell and food to trigger salivation simply by association) that you can employ to upload “training programs” to your brain.
Like I said, this technique is so powerful that you can actually use it for other areas of your life. You can program any emotional state you’d like.
- Replace fear with confidence.
- Wash out anxiety with peace.
- Become a sleep master rather than dragging through the night.
Similar techniques have been used for decades by super gurus like Tony Robbins, Oprah Winfrey, Warren Buffet, Pro Athletes of all kinds and even top neuroscientists.
Let me share a study with you conducted by Dr. Biasiotto from the University of Chicago.
In this science experiment, he split people into three groups and tested each group on how many free throws they could make. He then had the 3 groups perform the following tasks:
- Group 1: practice free throws every day for an hour.
- Group 2: practice free throws every day for 1 hour (but only visually in their mind)
- Group 3: The third group did nothing.
What did he find?
- The first group improved by 24%.
- The second group improved by 23% without touching a basketball!!!!
- The third group did not improve which was expected.
Of course this experiment isn’t saying that we don’t have to practice or put any effort into getting better. What it does tell us is that our brain can be influenced by what we choose to think about.
Imagine what you could do if you implemented both practice and the mental rehearsal technique of visualization. The sky is the limit.
If you apply this to every aspect of your life, it can do wonders for you and those around you.
This short guide will help you to start the process of downloading a new “training program” to enhance your sleep (and anything else you want in life).
This is my gift to you!!! I Hope you like it…
But don’t just like it, Take it, and take action!
Programming Your Brain with The Deep Sleep Software
Have you ever been driving while listening to music, and when a particular song comes on, your brain immediately serves up a set of memories about a specific time in your life or singular event that was meaningful to you?
Our mind is constantly making associations. Good and Bad.
Chances are you’ve already done this technique with your sleep and you don’t even know it…
The problem is that you didn’t control it and it could have been done backwards.
Maybe you’ve established a NEGATIVE association with lying in bed…
An association of worry, anxiety, frustration, irritability or inability.
Chances are the minute you lie down in bed you feel it, only you didn’t know where are what it was coming from.
Your bed literally becomes the place associated with…
- Tossing and Turning
- Heat and Discomfort
In fact, you’re likely a pro at this technique, you just didn’t know it – much less how to benefit from it. So let’s start learning how to use this gift we’ve been given.
How to Install Your Deep Sleep Software
The first step is of course to install the software. I refer to this as “software” because it creates new brain pathways for quick-access to the emotion or feeling you just “installed”.
We are going to install the Deep Sleep Software and then give you a button or trigger to launch the program when you need to feel the sense for “Deep Sleep”.
Don’t Check Out Here! The following exercise requires total concentration and focus, so find yourself 10-20 minutes when you can close your eyes and not be disturbed.
When’s the best time to do this exercise…
Immediately before you fall asleep at night or just after you wake up in the morning.
Let’s get started.
Start by taking a deep breath and then exhaling slowly. Allow your eyes to close and a wave of relaxation to flow down your body. Do this 3 to 4 times, with your eyes remaining closed and allow yourself to become completely relaxed. It’s also a good idea to try counting down from 50. This process puts you into the alpha brainwave which is the frequency for relaxation, creativity and clarity. Think of it as prepping your brain for a clean install
When your mind is clear and calm, think of a time when you felt really relaxed, when things were just perfect. Maybe it was right after a massage, or an earlier time in your life when you woke up from an amazing night of sleep. Whatever that memory was, step inside your body and see what you would have seen when you were actually experiencing it. What did you hear? What did you feel? How heavy was your body? Were there smells or tastes or colors associated with it? The more sensory information the better. And if you can’t think of a time when you were relaxed, then fabricate it… just make sure it’s vivid and you run through all the details as if it actually happened.
I need you to really go for this. Feel how your entire body was perfectly calm, blissed beyond measure and heavily sedated with relaxation. Your mind was clear. You’re happy and everything was perfect.
When you start to feel the relaxation sensations, step into the feelings and let them double. Sink deeper into that state and amplify what you’re experiencing. Allow the feeling to overcome you.
When you get to a point where you know these feelings are about to peak, gently touch your thumb and index fingers together to form a ring (it doesn’t matter which hand you do this with). This will be your “trigger” or “control” button. Hold your fingers together as you continue to experience this image of incredible calmness.
This is important: Say to yourself mentally, “Whenever I want to feel fully relaxed and ready to fall into deep sleep quickly with ease, all I need to do is press my fingers together and it will be.”
Now touch your fingers, then break your state by thinking about something completely different for a few moments. Or simply count up from 1 to 10. It’s important that you stop your trigger or control (touching your fingers) before your feelings begin to diminish
When your mind is elsewhere, and the positive feeling has gone, return your fingers to their trigger state. Allow the feelings to flow and do not fight them; just let them arrive. You should feel the wave of relaxation begin to wash over.
If the feelings don’t get as intense as you’d like them to be (and I can almost guarantee they won’t the first few times), don’t worry – simply repeat the process and continue anchoring your software. This helps your brain to associate what you’re trying to accomplish. The more you do this, the better you will get at it, and the stronger your trigger or control button will be.
Running the Deep Sleep Software
Ok. So now that you’ve installed your software and tested to make sure it’s running, use it. When you lay down at night to go to sleep, simply turn on the software by using your trigger or control button. Remember to allow the feelings to flood your body. Let it expand and this will strengthen the software every time you use it.
If you do this correctly, you will see immediate results.
And remember, you may need to do this a few times to actually get your brain reprogrammed. After all, it wouldn’t be cool if we could just re-program our brains that easily!
