I have no trouble whatsoever falling asleep. I often say that I get paid for only a fraction of the work that I actually do, because my dream time is extremely busy helping others along the way in their dream time. I am a Dream Walker. I send healing energies, deliver messages, create harmony throughout the universe and all that stuff. All in a night's work. It sometimes amazes me that I can actually wake up and feel refreshed. And whenever I don't then I ask that there be another volunteer the following night so that I can just regenerate my batteries. Always works for me. My wife counts me down from 10. She usually gets to 7 and I am snoring.
This frustrates her tremendously. She not only has trouble falling asleep (something to which I cannot relate) but she also wakes up in the middle of the night and can't get back to sleep. No wonder some mornings she is a wee bit crusty! If I ever experience that, then I am sure that I would be a complete bear in the morning.
She found a "Healthy Sleep" CD that she now listens to. We were talking in bed last night and she said that she was going to put her CD on now. I asked why she still needs it? After all, I was sure that by now she had found her "position" where her body felt relaxed and supported. That is what the CD said to do. She informed me that there was a LOT more to the process than that. This came as a surprise to me, because any time I listened to the CD all I heard was to "Find your position where your body feels relaxed and supported..." and I was then snoring.
Apparently there is much more to this, but every time I have tried to pay attention to the rest I simply miss it. It is like someone has pressed the button for CD Slipstream and I am then suddenly boosted off into the Alpha Quadrant of the Universe. For heaven's sake, what else could there be? I have yet to find out because, try as I might to stay awake to listen, I just can't. So perhaps I do have a sleep disorder, only one that is opposite the one my wife has. Perhaps I should be considering whether or not I should operate a moving vehicle! And maybe this CD really does work! I know I won't be listening to it while driving down the road.
In the meantime, I do know that there are a lot of stress disorders that are directly related to lack of sleep. That part scares me a bit when it comes to my wife's health. I continue to do Energy Balancing treatments for her and also encourage her to take a nap now and then so that she can balance out her sleep. Even if she does lie down, she very rarely naps. I say to just lay there till you drool. That way you know you are at least relaxed. Then perhaps when it comes time for the night time sleep, one will have an easier time getting there, having already prepped the body for the transition.
Sweet Dreams everyone!
