I’ve struggled with insomnia for as long as I can remember. As a teenager I would take hours to get to sleep. As I reached my 30s and 40s I began to wake up in the middle of the night and couldn’t get back to sleep for hours if at all.
There are 4 ways to use the law of attraction for insomnia: a sleep meditation, visualization, gratitudes, and journaling. Using these law of attraction exercises for sleep helps with relaxation to slow the mind down and get it focused on positive vibrations to allow a person to get to sleep and stay asleep all night.
I have used these law of attraction sleep exercises to get rid of my insomnia. The best part is that they work immediately so you don’t have to lay there staring at the ceiling half of the night. Getting a good night’s sleep is so important and I want to show you how you can use the law of attraction to beat your insomnia.
Sleep Meditation For Insomnia
To prepare yourself for a good night’s sleep, try meditating. A good guided sleep meditation will help you relax and get your mind and body ready to sleep.
This sleep meditation from Dr. Joe Dispenza is the best and has me off to dreamland in no time every time. I absolutely love it and it’s changed my life!
This is actually my favorite way to use the law of attraction for insomnia. I get so relaxed and usually don’t even make it through the entire meditation before dozing off.
You can also create your own meditation by stilling your mind. Think of something relaxing flowing over you. I like to think of water flowing all down my body. You could also think of energy flowing over you.
Then think of things that make you feel happy and relaxed or say or think positive affirmations for sleep.
Visualization For Better Sleep
If meditation isn’t your thing or you finish your meditation and you’re not quite falling asleep yet, you can visualize what you want in life. Really let your imagination go.
You would think this would get your mind going, but it actually puts it into a relaxed state so you can fall asleep.
The bonus is that right before you fall asleep is when your subconscious mind is most open. So everything you visualize is going to start to come into your reality.
I would not recommend focusing on visualizing sleep because it seems the more a person thinks about sleeping, the more stressed they get about not sleeping and can’t go to sleep.
Thinking about the things that you really want to happen gets you in a happy and relaxed mindset and allows your body to relax and fall asleep.
Use Gratitude To Get To Sleep Fast
Saying or thinking what you’re grateful for is another way you can use the law of attraction for insomnia.
Think of all the amazing things already in your life and in this world that you are so thankful for.
You can even show gratitude for how comfy your bed is and how it makes you feel comforted and loved.
We all have so many things that we can feel grateful for that we take for granted every day. Giving thanks for them will relax you in a way you never imagined.
I usually don’t even remember falling asleep because I drift off in the middle of thinking of all the things I’m grateful for.
Here are some examples of gratitudes you can get started with:
I am so grateful for (the person laying next to you).
I am so grateful that I am healthy and vibrant.
I am so grateful for this soft comfortable bed that makes me feel like I’m being hugged.
I am so thankful for my body that always knows just what to do to keep me thriving.
I am so grateful that I have a beautiful home.
I am so thankful for my amazing career.
I am thankful that I have an amazing family who loves me.
I am so grateful for my pets and the love I can give them and that they return to me.
Journal Your Feelings To Beat Insomnia
If you are having trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep, get up for a few minutes and journal.
If you’re feeling frustrated that you can’t sleep, you can journal about your feelings about your insomnia.
Write down exactly how you feel in the moment. Get it all out.
Describe your fears around not sleeping and how it affects your life.
After you get all your feelings written in your journal, you will feel a sense of relief, like a weight has been lifted off your body.
You will feel so much more at ease. Your mind and body will relax. And falling asleep will be easy.
Get back into bed and take some deep breaths.
If the reason you can’t get to sleep is because you have an endless to-do list and your mind just won’t shut off, use journaling to get all of those worries on paper and out of your head.
Write down the thoughts that are swirling around your mind while you’re trying to sleep. Be sure to also journal about how those things make you feel.
Once you feel you’ve gotten it all down on paper, you will feel a lightness and sense of relief.
Now get back into bed, take some relaxing deep breaths and allow yourself to drift off to sleep.
You can also do the visualization or gratitude exercises after you get back in bed until you fall asleep to keep your mind busy on something positive and relaxing.
Other Ways To Help You Get To Sleep
If stress and anxiety are the main cause of your sleeplessness, getting relaxed is the most important thing you can do to beat insomnia. However, that may feel easier said than done if you don’t know the right things to try.
Try A Weighted Blanket For Insomnia
The one thing that has really helped me to relax and get rid of stress to prepare for the law of attraction exercises above is using a weighted blanket. I’ve always loved the feeling of having multiple blankets on me, but sometimes it’s just too hot to have all that going on.
Weighted blankets give me that feeling without overheating me. Weighted Evolution is the one I love the most because it doesn’t have too much filling like other ones. So I don’t get hot and sweaty because of it. Also they use glass beads for the weight rather than toxic plastic pellets.
I have the Sensory+Bamboo one. It’s so soft and cozy and has little dots in the fabric that feel relaxing to touch. I feel like I’m getting a big hug all night. You Can Get 10% Off Your First Order! Use Code: WE10
These blankets work because the pressure of the weighted blanket promotes the release of serotonin which is a feel good hormone in your body. It promotes happy feelings and stress relief. This also triggers the body to release melatonin and help you fall asleep.
This is a link to their FAQ page where you can learn how to choose the right weighted blanket for you.
It’s amazing how relaxed I feel once I put the blanket over me. I start to drift off just because of the way it melts away my stress and anxiety.
White Noise Can Help You Get To Sleep Faster And Stay Asleep
Another thing that helps with my insomnia is having some white noise in the bedroom when I go to bed. I listen to a meditation a lot of times, but once it’s over I can hear my boyfriend breathing and snoring and every little creak in the house if I don’t have some other sound to distract me from it.
This is the sound machine I have and I think it’s the best. I used to sleep with a fan on, but that’s a problem in the winter when it’s cold. The reason I love this sound machine so much is that it can play continuously. A lot of others only play for a couple of hours which wakes me up when it shuts off.
It also has 20 different sounds to choose from like rainfall, a bonfire (my personal favorite), a babbling brook, ocean waves, birds chirping and a fan setting so I can have the fan sound without the air blowing.
The sound machine gives me the noise distraction, but also relaxes me A LOT. Many times that I can’t get to sleep it’s because my mind and body won’t relax. The combo of the weighted blanket and sound machine used with the law of attraction exercises for insomnia is the golden ticket for me to get to sleep and stay asleep.
I hope these tips to beat insomnia and get better sleep using the law of attraction and relaxation techniques help you and change your life. Getting proper sleep can change everything and allow you to live a better life, getting all the things you want and achieving all your goals.
