Undoing the Day Yoga Nidra: Unwind InsomniaFeb 22, 2022
Personalised practices can make a huge impact on how to prepare for healthy rest.
This Yoga Nidra was designed to help those with insomnia. Often the mind is busy processing the day’s events into our past, present and future life. This can lead to difficulties sleeping, so it can be helpful to resolve some of the conscious thoughts during a practice that works at the hypnogogic state – all three states of the mind. The practice is suitable for relative beginners as the long periods of silence can be challenging to maintain the focus.
What is ‘Undoing the Day’ Yoga Nidra?
Structured in a conventional form with my integrated style, this Yoga Nidra has more silence to allow the listener to process their day.
After following the rotation of consciousness, breathwork and opposite sensation the journey is one of your own choice.
Using a Law of Attraction exercise that reviews the day with a view to accepting the events without judgment, this practice when done in the yoga nidra state is even more powerful. The practice requires the listener to consider points during the day that did not proceed as may have been desired. The listener can consider alternative scenarios until an outcome that is unconditionally acceptance is felt.
This process encourages acceptance of life as it is. Acceptance is a key step for forgiveness practice and this opens the heart for deeper healing.
Yoga Nidra’s ability to cross the conscious, subconscious and unconscious brain states can clear the day’s events and build the neural connections for future decisions that are more aligned to a happier perspective.
Why Does it Help?
As hinted above, this practice is about:
1. Finding unconditional acceptance of life, as it is.
2. Building a forgiveness practice.
3. Carrying less ‘daily baggage’ and fully processing the day at all levels.
4. An ability to create deeper emotional connections with others.
5. A greater capacity to love and see the beauty in moments and others.
6. A sense of peace in how life unfolds when it does not meet expectations.
7. Fostering a sense of openness to unforeseen events in life.
8. Better sleep as the mind can ease into deep rest.
9. 20 minutes of Yoga Nidra itself is the equivalent of 2 hours sleep!
Sleep issues are more complex that a simple Yoga Nidra. However, this is a helpful tool to add to sleepless nights. Personalised practices can make a huge impact on how to prepare for healthy rest.
Eating behaviours can affect sleep patterns. What and when you eat impacts the body’s ability to calm down for rest. Make a journal of foods that you eat and how you sleep as this can provide insight into foods that are affecting restorative sleep time.
